THC-O is a synthetic, hemp-derived cannabinoid. It is 2-3 times stronger than conventional THC. And it is said to produce both euphoric and psychadelic effects. Curious yet?
Following passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, which legalized hemp cultivation, we’ve seen a wave of products made from the legal plant. Aside from non-intoxicating CBD, which is found organically in hemp plants and can be easily extracted, there is a growing list of cannabinoids that have been manufactured by subjecting CBD to various chemical processes. THC-O is on that list, along with Delta-8, but is known to be much stronger.
Not only is THC-O stronger than other forms of THC, but the psychoactive effects are much different. Many users describe THC-O as producing an almost psychedelic high, with borderline hallucinogenic effects. Both drug experts and sellers advise new users to go very slowly when trying this powerful cannabinoid.
There’s another reason to go slow: the effects of THC-O are always delayed. It’s a so-called “prodrug,” which means that the THC-O you swallow or inhale isn’t pre-activated by heat like most THC (the process called decarboxylation). Instead, the effects of THC-O aren’t felt until it’s been fully processed through the body—just like THC edibles. So, whether you’re eating THC-O gummies or vaping a THC-O cart, you won’t feel any effects for 20-60 minutes.
