What Is THC-O Acetate?

THC-O Acetate Products

Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, manufacturers are constantly experimenting and researching to cover even more THC family members, as well as altcannabanoids (alternative cannabinoids) to continue bringing new benefits to consumers. With Delta 8 unfortunately under the radar in states with backward reasoning and unjust laws, new forms of Federally Compliant, hemp-derived cannabinoids such as Delta 10 THC are entering the scene.  Along with these comes a slightly different, supposedly more potent: THC-O Acetate.

All cannabinoids, from CBD to THC and past begin as CBGA. Since cannabinoids share a molecular structure, manipulation in the cannabinoid industry is not quite as difficult as it seems. Delta-8 is relatively new to the THC scene, researchers have been using specific methods to manipulate cannabinoids for ages, in the search to unearth new, unique and exotic cannabinoids.

What is THC-O Acetate?

Delta 8 THC is found in low concentrations in cannabis, which needs to be extracted and isolated.  This is the process used to make Delta 8 carts, Delta 8 gummies, and other Delta 8 products. THC-O Acetate — usually called ATHC or THC-O — does not occur naturally in the cannabis plant, therefore it must be made synthetically.

THC-O products stem from a man-made cannabinoid, produced with the use of two specific chemicals to acetylate THC. Acting as a metabolic prodrug for THC itself, THC-O works in the same manner as other prodrugs which first need to be broken down and processed before realizing what the effects of THC-O feel like.  Reports range from people claiming psychedelic experiences to others finding it a relaxing but uplifting and energetic body euphoria.  This makes sense since we know all chemicals affect individuals to a different degree.

THC-O Acetate can also be synthesized from Delta 8 THC.  This is a silver lining for states that have banned Delta 8 carts, and Delta 8 gummies while trying to redefine where Delta 8 THC is legal is the fact many producers currently stock with a bulk supply of Delta 8 can be converted fairly easily. Another claim to fame for THC-O cartridges, THC-O distillate and other THC-O products is the cannabinoid’s reported effects, according to consumers.

How does THC-O Feel compared to Delta 8 vs Delta 9 THC?

First let’s address the popular question, what is Delta 9 THC?  Delta 9 THC the cannabinoid most popular in the THC family.  In laments terms, Delta 9 THC is the form of THC abundantly found in cannabis, responsible for its powerful psychoactive effects and medicinal benefits.  Delta 9 THC edible are taking the spotlight nationwide, now that it has been successfully extracted from hemp plants, which makes Delta 9 THC gummies and edibles Federally Compliant!

Delta 9 THC vs THC-O? Based on user reports, such as THC-O acetate trip report, with little science behind it due to it’s recent use in THC-O acetate gummies, THC-O vape carts and other products have been said to be potentially two to three times stronger than Delta 9 THC. According to some scientific figures, THC-O can be 300% more potent than traditional Delta 9 THC.  However, that potency doesn’t always translate to exactly what we believe.

Consumers of this rising cannabinoid claim THC-O Acetate is a more introspective and psychedelic experience compared to Delta 8 THC vs Delta 9,  which is possibly attributed to the extreme potency of THC-O distillate. Similar to Delta 8 THC, THC-O can only be made through isolation, which confines most THC-O acetate products to be either a THC-O cartridge, THC-O tincture or THC-O gummies.

Most hemp and cannabis users find Delta 8, Delta 9 THC or Delta 10 provides the perfect amount of relief.  Therefore, the idea of consuming such a highly-concentrated product seems excessive. However, a major appeal for medical applications of THC-O Acetate is being uncovered as the research continues. As mentioned previously, all individuals react differently to each chemical compound. This is true for traditional Delta 9 THC users who find even Delta 9 THC to not be strong enough for pain relief, anxiety or other issues people use THC to help control.

Due to its potency, many believe that THC-O can be a groundbreaking cannabinoid as far a beneficial medicine for those who wish to utilize the benefits of cannabis, but need a more concentrated dose that isn’t easily attainable through other forms of consumption. You may be wondering if THC-O is legal.  Currently, THC-O Acetate is being treated similarly to Delta 8 THC.

That means in states where Delta 8 has already been banned, you may be unable to have THC-O products delivered.  However, since there is so little information on emerging THC-O, few states are truly aware of it.  This means distributors may be able to ship to states Delta 8 THC is prohibited, given someone doesn’t do something stupid and irresponsible to land it on the radar.

THC-O Dosages

Online dosage charts for THC-O provide ranges as rough guidelines:

  • The minimum dose of THC-O needed to produce psychoactive effects: Approx. 2mg orally or 0.5 mg if inhaled through a THCO-vape cart or dabbing THC-O distillate.
  • “Standard” psychoactive dose: Between 1 – 3 mg when inhaled through a cart or distillate dab, 3 – 10 mg if eating a THC-O acetate gummy or tincture.
  • Powerful ‘psychedelic’ dose: 10 mg or higher when consumed orally in a THC-O edible or tincture. 5mg or higher when using a THC-O cartridge, THC-O flower, or pure THC-O distillate.

IMPORTANT!  Doses this high should only be taken if the user is already familiar with the effects of THC-O at lower doses, and has a tolerance for THC in general.  Always follow the golden rule when experimenting with new cannabinoids:  “start low, and go slow.”

The Future of THC-O Distillate 

With every new cannabis product, it is vital for consumers to ensure they are receiving a safe, premium-quality product. If demand for THC-O Acetate grows enough, the market for third-party lab testing and COAs will expand as we’ve seen with others, such as Delta 8 THC lab testing.

One drawback of third-party testing stems from THC-O being a non-natural cannabinoid.  Due to this, THC-O isn’t measured with the common testing methods currently in place. A few labs have claimed to create a reliable testing process to measure THC-O, but nothing has become the official standard. Keep this in mind if trying THC-O, by choosing a reliable provider who has consistently tested their product quality and safety.  As more consumers experience the unique, warm and comfortable feeling a THC-O acetate gummy or THC-O cart provides, we will see the demand for this new, extremely unique cannabis derivative skyrocket.  Many manufacturers are already using THC-O distillate to create blends, mixed with Delta 8 THC, Delta 9, Delta 10 and of course CBD.  One key feature of CBD to remember is its value when mixing with another cannabinoid that could potentially cause anxiety, as CBD is amazing to level out unpleasant effects.
