Are you interested in carrying a next-level product that your customers will rave about? If the answer is yes, what you’re looking for is THC-O. THC-O is short for THC-O-Acetate.
It is the only currently available version of THC that does not occur organically in nature. Instead, this substance is created under strict laboratory settings by introducing acetic anhydride to hemp-derived Delta-8 THC.
The resulting THC-O is a synthetic that is as much as 300% as powerful as Delta 9 THC. This product is widely used, just like many other high-quality THC products. However, there are a couple of nuances that you should know and will want to pass on to your clients.
How is THC-O Used?
Because of the power of the substance, you should only ingest or vape about 1/4 to 1/3 of the amount that you normally would of a Delta 8 or Delta 9 THC product.
Because of the chemical makeup of this product, the body reacts differently to it than other THC products. More specifically, the effects of THC-O are not felt for at least 30 minutes or more and are regarded as a “creeper” that can catch up to you before you realize it.
Letting your customers know that THC-O works this way may give them a chance for a better first experience.
How Can I Sell THC-O?
THC-O is available in a variety of different forms to fit the needs of your customers. The following bulk THC-O-Acetate products are available for sale now—
These gummies allow powerful THC-O to be consumed in edible form. They are available in a variety of different flavors to satisfy your customer’s diverse tastes.
They may appeal to customers who want a strong alternative to the popular delta-8 gummies.
THC-O is already known for its delayed effects. When consumed in edible form, it may take even longer to reach full strength. This should be taken into consideration when using gummies.
THC-O Vape Cartridges
Vape cartridges allow your customers to consume THC-O on the go by screwing cartridges onto any compatible batteries they already own.
These vape carts may be flavored to mimic Indica or Sativa terpene profiles or artificially flavored.
This is one of the most popular ways to consume THC-O, especially among those who prefer smoking as a delivery system. Cartridges offer many uses in a compact size, and the effects are relatively fast compared to other products.
THC-O Disposable Vapes
Disposable vapes are another popular product that fuses THC-O oil with a pre-installed battery. Customers love these products because they are ready to use out-of-the-box and don’t require any additional cleaning or maintenance.
This is one of the newest cannabinoids to hit the market, so expect to see other offerings soon, including THC-O flower, concentrates, live resin/dabs, THC-O tinctures, topicals, pre-rolls, and THC-O distillate.
THC-O is a relatively new cannabinoid, and you may have a lot more questions about what it is, how it works, and how customers put it to use. The following FAQs should answer some of your biggest questions.
What effects are experienced by the THC-O user?
Users report that they experience the same kind of “head high” as they do with Delta 9 THC. However, the experience is more intense, and some report a psychedelic trip, not unlike that of LSD.
In addition, users report that the high has a more “spiritual” feeling to it. The user experiences a state where the mind and the body are completely submerged in an immersive and transcendent journey.
Is THC-O Legal?
Toggle content goes here, click edit button to change this text.
Currently, THC-O falls into the same legal area as Delta 8 THC, HHC, and other hemp products and cannabinoids not derived from marijuana.
Therefore, on a federal level, THC-O is legal as long as the product that is made with the synthetic does not contain more than 0.3% Delta 9 THC. This means that THC-O complies with The Farm Bill of 2018 and is federally legal.
However, each state can either follow the federal legal determination or create laws and restrictions of its own. Food and Drug Administration approval is not necessary to sell these products.
In the case of Delta 8 THC, 17 states and counting have made the cannabinoid illegal. Because the substance has only been out for a short time, most states have not determined the legal status of THC-O. However, it is assumed that those states who have made Delta 8 THC illegal may also do the same with THC-O.
Can THC-O be made at home?
Absolutely not! The chemical process to make THC-O is highly volatile.
Therefore, this compound must be made under laboratory conditions that follow strict protocols. You should never attempt to make THC-O at home.
Which is better: HHC or THC-O?
HHC and THC-O are two popular cannabinoid products that are both considered by fans to have comparable effects to THC. However, their differences come down to personal taste more than “better” or “worse.”
THC-O has been reported by some early adopters to be one of the most powerful cannabinoids. Customers looking for the strongest effect may appreciate it for that reason.
However, THC-O is also reported to have delayed effects. Customers have reported that HHC begins acting relatively quickly, and this may be a point of preference for some of them.
Recommend that your customers try both to find out which offers the better experience. This is also the best advice with other popular new formulations, including Delta-10 THC.
Will THC-O show up on a drug test?
THC-O may show up in any drug tests that detect hydroxy-THC. Your own body creates this metabolite after THC is consumed. Your body can create this metabolite even when you’ve consumed products with only trace amounts of THC.
You should be skeptical of any claim that a cannabinoid can beat a drug test. This is rarely true, and drug tests can also be updated.
The Quality of The Hemp Doctor Products
Like our entire line of CBD, Delta 8 THC, and other THC products, our THC-O offerings are also of superior quality.
THC-O is created by extracting CBD from the hemp plants (rather than cannabis) and then converting that CBD to Delta 8 THC. From there, we convert Delta 8 into THC-O in a controlled laboratory environment.
Like our other products, we insist on using only hemp grown in the United States. Then we create the CBD that will eventually become THC-O using advanced scientific methods that leave no residual solvents or hydrocarbons.
Finally, we test our THC-O products with an independent laboratory to ensure the purity of the product and the accuracy of its label.
You will not find a purer or higher quality THC-O product, than those we offer at The Hemp Doctor! Now, all of these products are available at wholesale pricing for our business customers. Log in to see bulk prices and checkout.
