LEARN ABOUT THC-O
WHAT IS THC-O?
THC-O stands for Tetrahydrocannabinol-O-Acetate and it’s also known as ATHC. However, this is not to be confused with THCa which is a different cannabinoid altogether.
One important thing to keep in mind is that THC-O is an isolate. It is free of other cannabinoid elements, such as flavonoids and terpenes. The final result is a thick oil that tends to be 3x times more powerful than THC. Also, very little is known about the effects and benefits of this cannabinoid.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THC-O?
THC-O offers a more potent high and users report it as being an introspective, almost spiritual experience. It is said to take you to an almost alternate state, more akin to the 'trips' associated with the milder hallucinogens. With edibles, this potency mitigates the longer time it takes to feel the effects of THC-O.
In the human body the liver metabolizes THC into a variation that adds a sedative effect. THC-O still experiences that change, but its psychoactive strength may compensate for some of the lethargic downsides.
