THC-O vs Delta-8 THC
One question often posed recently is how does THC-O compare to Delta 8 THC? In order to answer this we must first understand the differences between the two compounds.
Delta 8 THC is a compound that is converted from CBD. This happens by a synthesizing process using solvents and acids. No additional chemicals are typically added.
THC-0 then is created by using the Delta 8 THC. The Delta 8 THC is transformed into THC-0 because a new chemical is added called acetic anhydride. Because of this process the THC-0 is considered much more potent than Delta 8-THC. Acetic Anhydride should not be created at home. It is a corrosive chemical compound that should only be handled and manufactured with proper resources and equipment.

As previously mentioned, THC-0 is more potent that Delta 8 THC. Thus, THC-0 should be used in smaller dosages than Delta 8 THC. Delta 8 THC typically is used along the same dosage lines as Delta 9 THC. When trying it you can add more or subtract more until you have a nice “high” that you can enjoy. The “high” you typically feel with Delta 8 THC tends to be more of a body relaxation, similar to a heavy Indica type marijuana strain. THC-0 on the other hand is much stronger. Users have noted that THC-0 can be 3-5 times stronger than Delta 8 THC. The effects are much different as well. THC-0 typically considered more psychedelic. Users have described intense feelings of euphoria, and hallucinations. Hence, the need for smaller dosages, so one can figure out exactly what level of usage they need to get the “high” that they want.
Though the effects of Delta-8 and THC-O are vastly different, both cannabinoids seem to have therapeutic benefits. More research is needed, but experts believe that they may both provide some of the same benefits as traditional THC products because they both interact with the Endocannabinoid System similarly.
Both THC-0 and Delta 8 THC cannabinoids are useful for managing symptoms like nausea, poor sleep, and pain. Delta-8 may be a better solution for anyone who is prone to anxiety or paranoia after THC use. Its milder effects are thought to be less likely to produce these uncomfortable side effects. THC-0 on the other hand can be used to experience some spiritual or mental enlightenment.
Though more research is needed, both of these cannabinoids can be enjoyed through moderation. Slow and steady always wins the race, (or gets you to the perfect high you want!)
