If you’re searching for THC O online to learn more about this increasingly popular cannabinoid or already browsing the virtual shelves for THC O for sale, you’ve come to the right place! In recent years, the use of recreational and medical cannabis has become increasingly popular, with more and more people seeking the therapeutic benefits of THC and other compounds found in the cannabis plant. One of these compounds is tetrahydrocannabinol-O-acetate, referred to as THC-O acetate or THC-O.
Is it legal to buy THC-O?
Ask the average stoner a decade ago what lesser cannabinoids are and they would have had no idea what you’re talking about. These days, lesser cannabinoids, sometimes also referred to as minor cannabinoids or alternative cannabinoids are all the rage. Minor cannabinoids skyrocketed in popularity after the Farm Bill of 2018 was signed by former U.S. President Donald Trump. This bill legalized hemp farming at the federal level and inadvertently also legalized hemp-derived products including those with psychoactive effects, while marijuana remains a Schedule I substance according to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency. Because of this, countless new hemp products hit the shelves and most minor cannabinoids as well as CBD started to be derived from hemp to remain within the law. That makes THC-O legal federally, so, if you’re looking to buy THC-O online, you’re in luck! Minor cannabinoids still don’t compete with tried and true flower, dabs, or THC vaporizers, but THC-O online shops are gaining traction, particularly in states that have not legalized recreational marijuana yet.
Is THC-O legal in all states?
Are you wondering if you can buy THC O in your state? This question is asked often by cannabis consumers since the new cannabinoid falls in a sort of legal gray area and restrictions change constantly. Despite being federally legal, several states have already created regulations regarding lesser cannabinoids including THC O products and some have even banned their sale entirely, so keep that in mind when you buy THC-O online and check local laws. Just because cannabis is legal for recreational purposes in your state, that doesn’t mean raw hemp derived cannabinoids are also legal. This makes cannabis regulations even more confusing for online smoke shops and consumers alike. Here at Everything 420, we will not ship THC-O products to customers with shipping addresses in the following states to ensure we abide by state regulations regarding THC-O for sale online:
- North Dakota
- New York
- Rhode Island
What exactly is in THC-O products?
Cannabinoids such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), two of the most well known, are naturally produced chemical compounds found in cannabis plants. There are also a few non-natural (i.e. synthetic) cannabinoids on the market as well and tetrahydrocannabinol-O-acetate (THC-O acetate), also called ATHC, is one of them that is not found naturally. Most of the over 100 natural cannabinoids are only created in trace amounts by plants, so they are very hard to acquire in large amounts and most do not produce any psychoactive effects. Essentially, they won’t get you high. THC O products are rising in popularity since this cannabis extract does produce a high comparable to regular THC, but remains legal at the federal level since it is derived from hemp plants.
How is THC-O acetate made?
THC-O acetate is an ester of THC that must be made in a laboratory setting. This is because the multi-step chemical process requires the use of highly flammable and volatile chemicals in addition to expensive, specialized lab equipment. THC-O acetate is obtained from cannabis extract from the hemp plant via a chemical process using a colorless liquid called acetic anhydride. Acetic anhydride is also used to make several common items such as fibers, dyes, pharmaceuticals, plastics, and even explosives. The complex multi-step process involves:
- Extracting CBD from legal hemp plants - The first step in the process involves obtaining CBD isolate. There are several extraction methods, however carbon dioxide (CO2) extraction is the most common at the commercial level. A pressurized closed-loop extractor system forces the carbon dioxide to be in a liquid state, where it’s washed over the plant material, stripping it of CBD and other cannabinoids. When brought back to normal pressure and temperature, the carbon dioxide reverts back to its gas form and evaporates, so all that’s left is cannabinoids. The cannabis extract can then be turned into CBD isolate, where other cannabinoids are removed.
- CBD is then turned into Delta-8 THC - The next step is to transform hemp-derived CBD into delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-8 THC). CBD isolate is dissolved into a non-polar organic solvent such as heptane. Then an acid such as hydrochloric acid is added to the mixture, which is mixed constantly for up to 18 hours at roughly 100 degrees celsius. Once the chemical reaction has taken place, the mixture is neutralized with sodium bicarbonate.
What is a THC-O high like?
Even though this synthetic cannabinoid begins as CBD, a non-psychoactive substance which does not get users high, THC-O will absolutely get you blazed. You don’t have to worry about that! If you’re going to buy THC O for the first time, you’ll want to have some insight into what the high is like, since it can be quite different from a regular THC high. THC-O is not well-studied or well-documented as it is not as commonly used as other cannabis products. All information regarding what a THC-O high is actually like comes directly from the mouths of 420 enthusiasts that partake in the substance recreationally.
According to smokers, a high from THC-O is completely different from THC in terms of both potency and effects, which may be due to differences in its molecular structure. Some estimates place THC O potency at around three times that of Delta 9 THC (normal THC). For comparison, Delta 8 THC is believed to be about 60% less potent than Delta 9 THC. The strength of THC O can easily be overwhelming for novice tokers or those who take too much and can cause hallucinations. It's important to note that consuming untested or poorly understood substances can be dangerous, and it's always best to err on the side of caution by taking it very slowly when considering trying any new substance. Before you buy THC O, be sure to read the section below on how to dose this specific cannabinoid since dosage is different due to its potency.
THC-O has a delayed onset no matter the method of consumption with very powerful effects. This is very different from smoking weed or vaping, which produces a near immediate high. It’s also different from consuming weed edibles, which may not go into effect 45 minutes to an hour later. THC-O will always take roughly 20 to 30 minutes to start feeling its effects whether vaping, smoking a pre-roll, or munching on THC O gummies. This is because the synthetic cannabinoid is a prodrug, which simply means it doesn’t become active until it’s metabolized by the body. This makes it easy to overindulge and get too high.
When taken at large doses, some stoners say that the extreme potency can sometimes cause mild to moderate visual effects or hallucinations that can be described as a psychedelic experience. The peak of this very strong cerebral high is sometimes compared to psilocybin (magic mushrooms), however like most substances including other cannabinoids, THC-O effects can differ drastically from person to person and even for the same person at different times. Many people call a THC O high a spiritual and introspective experience that’s perfect for deep thought and understanding the secrets of the universe. Other potential THC O effects include:
- Extreme restlessness
- Feeling unable to stop doing a certain task such as cleaning
- A powerful body and mind buzz
- Feeling highly relaxed
- Couch lock
- Powerful euphoria
If you’re used to other cannabis products, you already know based on this explanation that THC-O is unique and does not have the same effects as natural THC, which doesn’t typically produce hallucinations, so the two aren’t really comparable. You can definitely expect to get much higher than anything that Delta 8 or Delta 9 THC can produce. Taking THC O at high doses you aren’t comfortable with can cause some negative effects as well, such as paranoia, increased anxiety, dizziness, vomiting, and couch lock, which is similar to a very potent dose of regular THC.
How to dose THC-O
Despite starting out as CBD and Delta-8, THC-O acetate is much more potent than both and even stronger than normal THC. Some people estimate that it’s roughly three times more potent than THC, however no research has been done to prove this. If you’re most used to smoking weed in the form of dry herb, vape carts, concentrates, or extracts, be sure to take it slow when experimenting with THC O products for the first time. Start your THC O journey with a small dose, even smaller than you think you can handle and don’t take another dose until at least 30 to 40 minutes since it’s possible that the effects begin after this time and you can quickly become higher than expected.
For most people, the minimum dose to feel desired effects is 0.5 mg, which is around two 5-second pulls on the average THC O vape or ⅕ of a Puff THC-O Gummies peach ring. This is the best dose to start with. Most people work up to a standard dose of between 1 to 3 mg. Experienced smokers with a high tolerance who use THC O regularly are able to take a highly psychedelic dose of around 5 mg or more. When purchasing THC O online, choose products that are easy for you to calculate your preferred dosage, so you never over do it. Keep in mind that several factors including gender, weight, and tolerance can affect the dose required for desired effects.
