What is THC-O?
Have you ever wished there is a stronger version of Delta 9 (THC)? Well, THC-O may just be what you were wishing for. So, what is THC-O? THC-O is short for THC-O acetate. This synthetic cannabinoid is three times more powerful than THC and up to five times more potent than Delta 8 THC. It is known to produce a borderline psychedelic high.
THC O is often described as the synthetic analog of THC. It is usually made by extracting Delta 8 THC from CBD and then synthesized to THC-O through a chemical process. The reason THC-O is more potent than THC is that it has a higher bioavailability rate.
THC-O effects may vary depending on the individual. However, it is associated with a relaxation-inducing, body high. It also delivers a sprinkle of euphoria along with potentially psychedelic experiences.
Benefits of THC-O
Due to the long-standing criminalization of cannabis, there is barely any research into the benefits of many cannabinoids like THC-O. Anecdotal evidence shows that THC-O has many of the same benefits associated with THC. This includes pain relief, inducing appetite, and promoting a more balanced sleep-wake cycle.
The effects of THC-O may vary from person to person. Therefore, we recommend experimenting with this cannabinoid cautiously, and always consult your doctor if you have any concerns about usage.
Is THC-O Safe?
Since it is a synthetic cannabinoid, the safety of THC-O is highly debated. One key difference between THCO and other synthetic cannabinoids is the fact that it shares a very similar chemical structure to THC. See more on the differences between THC, THC-O, and THC-P.
The best way to ensure that any THC-O product you buy is safe is to always buy from a reputable lab-tested brand like MD8. The process of synthesizing THC-O involves using chemical compounds and complex processes. If it is not done under the right conditions or by experts, the product could be potentially unsafe.
Is THC-O Legal?
The legal status of THC-O is not quite clear. The 2018 Farm Bill did not explicitly mention THC-O. However, since it is a hemp-derived product, it is covered by the bill and is technically legal. Nonetheless, we recommend that you check your local laws before purchasing any THC-O products.
Top-Selling THC-O Brands
Several THC-O products have appeared on the market in the last few years. They include THC O disposables, THC O cartridges, and more. Some top brands offering THC-O products include Koi CBD, MD8, Delta Extrax, and Binoid, among others.
As indicated above, the quality of a THC-O product can determine whether it’s safe and also influence the intensity of the effects it produces. How else can you tell what brand to buy? Look at the reviews!
Kenneth Tebbe just wrote a stellar 5 star review about the Sunset Sherbert 2 gram cartridge:
“Great THC-O Cart with a great flavor and gets you high, what more could you want? MD8 makes a product above the rest. Be sure to try their knockout blend products as well because they have a great entourage effect!”
What Makes MD8 THC-O Products Unique?
Like all our vaping products, these THC O devices were made according to stringent quality standards. Both our THC O cart and our THC O disposable contain 2 grams of potent THC O sourced from US-grown hemp plants. Our THC-O disposable 2 gram device is super convenient to use and is an excellent option for both newbies and experienced vapers. You can simply fit the MD8 THC O 2 gram disposable into your pocket and vape on the go no matter where you are located. The THC-O cartridge, on the other hand, is best suited for people who have some experience with vaping and who may have vape batteries lying around. The cart has a 510-threaded design and is compatible with many inexpensive vape batteries on the market today.
