What is THC-O

 


THC-O is a new, cutting edge cannabinoid (derived from Hemp just like Delta 8) which carries psychoactive effects and euphoric feelings associated with the typical properties associated with cannabis use. It is rumored that THC-O is roughly 3 times more potent than regular THC Additionally, THC-O is known for its anti-nausea, anti-anxiety, appetite stimulating and stress reducing properties.

 

Delta 9-THC or Delta 9-Tetrahydrocannabinol is the traditional version of THC and is the active ingredient in the Marijuana plant. This cannabinoid is responsible for the psychoactive effects experienced after consuming a marijuana product and is currently federally illegal and illegal in most states.

 

The main difference in THC-O and Delta 9-THC is federal and state legality. THC-O is fully federally legal and legal 38 states, while Delta 9-THC is federally illegal and illegal in most states. Both THC-O and Delta 9-THC produce euphoric psychoactive effects on users and carry a wide variety of medical and recreational benefits.

THC-O is superior to the traditional and illegal Delta 9-THC because it carries basically every benefit and effect of Delta 9-THC, but is fully federally legal and legal in 38 states in the United States.

 

Since products contain only THC-O made from 100% Hemp extract, companies are able to fully legally manufacture, distribute and sell to consumers in the United States. Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, ratified and signed into law in December 2018, Cannabis containing less than 0.3% Delta 9-THC is legally classified as Hemp and thus is legal for all intents and purposes under federal law. Let’s also not forget, THC itself isn’t federally illegal, only specifically Delta 9-THC is.

 

The difference in CBD (Cannabidiol) and THC-O (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is that CBD doesn’t carry the psychoactive effects that THC-O does. CBD can be used for numerous health reasons but it will never give the consumer the psychoactive effects that THC-O and Delta 9 would provide. THC-O carries most, if not all benefits of CBD, but also introduces the “high” euphoric feeling which can be hugely beneficial for many users.
