What is THC-O?
THCO Acetate is considered to be the Acetate Ester form of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). It’s effects were studied as far back as 1949 by the US Military. They discovered that THCO Acetate affected the muscle coordination of dogs twice as much as the commonly found Delta 9 THC.
Afterwards, THCO Acetate did see much attention until the 1970s in two major instances. The first time was in 1974 in a book by author D. Gold titled “Cannabis Alchemy: The Art of Modern Hashmaking. This book outlined the process of isomerizing “THC Acetate” as they referred to it. Then later on in 1978, the DEA discovered a lab in Jacksonville, Florida that had combined cannabis extract with acetic anhydride.

THC-O - Frequently Asked Questions:
What is THC-O good for?
THC-O is a great alternative for those who want to try a different cannabinoid than Delta 8 THC. Since THCO is also legal because of the 2018 US Farm bill it gives people the means to try an alternative. THCO can also be used for inflammatory issues as well as an appetite stimulant.
Is THC-O legal?
THCO is 100% legal as long as it meets some conditions. The reason it is legal is because of the 2018 US Farm bill from the Department of Agriculture. That act defines hemp as: “All derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent.” So this means a few areas have to be met in order for THCO to be legal. The first thing is that it has to be hemp derived. Since our THCO comes from hemp derived CBD isolate, that requirement is met. The other part is that when THCO is third party lab tested it has to come back at 0.3% Delta 9 THC contents or the distillate is not compliant.
Is THC-O acetate safe?
Unfortunately, since THCO is not a naturally occurring cannabinoid there is not a right or wrong answer to this question. THCO is not naturally found in hemp or cannabis plants so it has to be created synthetically in a lab by trained chemists. It is important to purchase THCO from a vendor that is reputable. Some vendors that are not considered reputable may still have reagents in the distillate from the chemical process to create THCO, so it is extremely important to purchase THCO from a reputable vendor that offers up to date third party lab testing.

Since many people have issues with sleep they are also open to try new things. Since THCO is readily available and legal according to the US Farm Bill it is possible that it can be used for sleep versus Delta 9 THC. Hemp derived Delta 9 THC is only legal if it has 0.3% or less in the total active cannabinoids on a lab analysis unless THCO which is legal so long as there is 0.3% or less Delta 9 THC. That means that you can get high potency THCO legally with no issues. Since THCO is the Acetate Ester form of THC it works in the same way that Delta 9 THC does with the endocannabinoid system. THCO and THC both bind to the body’s CB1 receptors and can cause effects such as intoxication, appetite stimulation, sleepiness, relaxation and others. It is not recommended to drive or operate heavy machinery during the usage of THCO.
Is THC-O safe to smoke?
THCO is safe to smoke as long as third party lab results can verify it. They can verify the results by finding the distillate free of residual solvents, heavy metal, pesticides and more.
How long does THC-O high last?
The length of THCO high can vary from person to person. The biggest reason is someone’s endocannabinoid system. Each person’s endocannabinoid system responds to cannabinoids slightly differently so there isn’t a set time for the high to last. The circumstances for consuming THCO are also similar in a sense of varied time. Once THCO goes through the process of digestion and gets metabolized by the liver the high can last from 3-6 hours depending on both your metabolism and endocannabinoid system.
