There was a time when the hemp industry consisted of just CBD. But, now in 2022, we have a ton of options available to serve all your needs. These products have different potency, tastes, and effects on the body, and it’s worth trying them all. One of the recent products in this space is THC-O and today in this article we will talk about How is THC-O made.

What is THC-O?

ATHC is also a hemp-derived cannabinoid. It is identical to DELTA-9 and is also known as O-acetyl-delta 9-THC. Also, the effects of this compound are very similar to that of DELTA-9. It has a stronger bind to the body as compared to other cannabinoids and is more intoxicating as compared to DELTA-8, DELTA-10, and HHC. Similar to another cannabinoid, THC-O also has various products such as vapes, oils, edibles, and flowers. 

How is it made?

You may have read in various articles, that THC-O is not natural and is synthetically made. But it’s not that easy to make THC-O and has a complex process, which is why different people have different opinions about it.

It is a naturally occurring cannabinoid that is found in hemp plants. However, It is a minor cannabinoid and is found in very small quantities in the hemp plant. Due to its low presence, brands convert CBD into DELTA-8 and add other compounds into the mix resulting in THC-O. The effects of consumption of THC-O are 3-4 times more potent than DELTA-9 THC.

Similar to DELTA-8 THC, which is also found in very low quantities naturally, producing enough volume is an issue. it is synthesized by converting CBD, which is found in abundance in hemp plants. Here’s the process of how the THC-O is made-

  1.     Industrial hemp is cultivated on farms.
  2.     CBD is found in abundance and is extracted from hemp stalks through a process using heat and pressure.
  3.     Then the DELTA-8 is made from CBD.
  4.     After that, acetic anhydride is added to DELTA-8 THC resulting in the formulation of THC-O.

This is a very complex process, and the views on whether the resultant THC-O is synthetic or natural are mixed, and you may also decide for yourself. 

Is it safe for consumption?

Although the process may be complex and the name of the chemicals would seem frightening, its effects are similar to that of DELTA-8, just stronger. On consumption of THC-O, you may experience effects 3-4 times stronger than those of DELTA-9 THC. And THC-O is still an enjoyable cannabinoid. But here are some of the facts that you should keep in mind before you consume THC-O-

  • Always buy THC-O from trusted websites/stores, it would be advised to not buy any discounted THC-O products from shady websites/stores.
  • Make sure you check the contents of the products; it would be better if you buy products that are organic and free of additives.
  • Also, it would be better to start with a small dosage and then gradually go your way up, as to not suffer any severe effects due to high dosage.

Warning- This is just advice and users are advised to conduct their part of the research before consuming any products.
