THC-O Side Effects
THC-O which is reportedly more potent than the main psychoactive ingredient in Marijuana has the ability to produce psychoactive effects. It has been gaining popularity recently because of its possible high level of potency. Due to the lack of research of its effects on one’s health, many have concerns about this THC analog.
THC-O, or Tetrahydrocannabinol, is a non-natural cannabinoid. Also called THC-O acetate, this compound is not derived from hemp in the same way other cannabis products, like CBD is. This means that THC-O is not found naturally in the hemp plant.
To synthesize THC-O, acetic anhydride is used. This chemical compound is a highly inflammable, colorless liquid that is typically used in making fiber, plastics, and other products. Because of the chemicals involved, production requires specialized equipment, thus one should use a trusted company like Vance Global when using this product. This process begins by extracting Delta-8 THC from hemp. The acetic anhydride is then combined with Delta-8 molecules to create THC-O.
There has been very little scientific research done on the effects of using THC-O. It has been reported by some news outlets that THC-O can be up to 3x more potent than THC. Based on the experiences of consumers, this compound is capable of producing more psychedelic effects than other cannabinoids. It has also been said that these effects tend to have a more spiritual tone.
While not much is known about the effects of THC-O, those who use this cannabinoid believe it can help to relieve pain, boost appetite, and reduce anxiety. Consumers also report the following side effects: Hallucinations, Anxiety, Paranoia, Sedation.
Public interest in THC-O has been growing across the US, especially in states where the sale of recreational Marijuana is still illegal. It is typically sold in vape cartridges, tinctures, and gummies. Again, that is why you should always purchase from a trusted resource like Vance Global.
Like most cannabinoids, THC-O is not regulated and is manufactured without any standards. For this reason, one should be very conscious when purchasing THC-O products.. Despite most THC-O products claiming to be all-natural, synthetic chemicals are always used in its production. Here at Vance Global we make sure the safest methods are used in producing this product.
THC-O is also considered a prodrug. This means that the psychoactive effects will not be noticeable until the chemical has been transformed after use. For THC-O, it could take up to 30 minutes to feel the effects. It is important to note that when taking THC-O edibles, effects are even more delayed. In these cases, one might not feel anything for several hours after taking the edible.
As long as you always rely on a trusted company like Vance Global you can enjoy the THC-0 experience. We strive to provide the best information to you so you can make an informed choice about which of our products to try.
