Interested in THC-O? Well, Here’s What You Need to Know.
Yes, we’re here to tell you that we’ve done it again. Just when you thought the past year or so couldn’t get any stranger, your good friends at Diamond CBD are about to throw you another curveball. No, we’re not talking about the pandemic or something else crazy going on with the world — although believe us when we say, you should still stay vigilant and take care of yourselves. No, this time, we’ve gone and turned the hemp world upside down. Just when you think you’ve heard it all, we’ve gone and introduced THC-O.
We know what you’re thinking. What the heck is THC-O?
These past couple of years have been one long wild ride for those of you that love all-natural, hemp-derived compounds. After years (and years) of trying to make CBD mainstream (and finally succeeding, we should add), out of nowhere, we brought you Delta-8 THC. You laughed, you cried, you felt the buzz with one of the finest cannabinoids around. But that wasn’t enough.
No, because Diamond CBD took things a step further. We decided that along with some relaxation and chill, you needed a little bit of energy and focus too. Heck, who doesn’t need something to kick their creative juices into high gear every once in a while? And so, earlier this year, we brought you Delta-10 THC. It’s a sativa-like cannabinoid that amps you up. It gives you energy, focus, and a creative buzz unlike any other hemp-derived compound out there.
At this point, we should have called it quits. After all, when you reach a certain level of success, you should bask in the glory of your, well, glory, pat yourself on the back, and say, job well done. But not us. Nope, here at Diamond CBD, we’re all about innovation. We’re always looking for the next big thing in hemp to help you reach new heights. It’s what we were born to do. It’s our mission and our purpose.
And so, we bring you THC-O.
“THC-O starts with a naturally occurring form of THC, but goes through synthesis in a lab to make something far more powerful than even standard THC,” writes Leafly.
“This potent high can even be derived from hemp, so depending on where you live, you can likely get it in the mail instead of visiting a dispensary. That being said, there is still some debate about whether THC-O constitutes ‘synthetic THC’ under federal law, which is still a controlled substance and illegal even when derived from hemp, so proceed with caution. Because it can only be made in a lab under very specific conditions, any THC-O product is only going to be as good as its manufacturer,” the article continued.
Of course, with a manufacturer as good as Diamond CBD, you can’t go wrong. So, keep reading if you’re ready to take the next step and reach the next level in your hemp journey. For those of you interested in THC-O, here’s what you need to know.
A Brand New Hemp Experience - THC-O Acetate
First things first, for all of you who are anxiously awaiting an answer — yes, THC-O or THC-O acetate is a brand new legal compound (well, there’s a grey area) that offers users a pretty sweet buzz. In fact, the high is quite potent, so much so that should you decide to try some, you’ll want to cancel your plans for the day. Unlike Delta-8 THC or Delta-10, THC-O is the type of compound that a person chills out with. You’re going to sit on the couch and watch Netflix all day. Pretty bad Netflix, too, not the good stuff like Cobra Kai.
But that’s part of the fun.
“THC-O’s full name is THC-O acetate, and when it’s made from hemp, it typically starts as a delta-8 extract. What makes it larger than life, and why it can only be made in a lab, is Acetic Anhydride. This chemical is highly corrosive and flammable, so don’t DIY this—having a house that’s not on fire is going to contribute to a better experience in both THC-O and life,” writes Leafly.
“Once it becomes an acetate, THC gets a big boost in potency, with some even calling its effects psychedelic. The end product is a thick but viscous oil that can be prepared for eating or vaping,” the article continues.
In other words, THC-O is a beast. Whether you’re a newbie or a veteran cannabinoid user, you’re going to want to start slow and work your way up until you find the correct dose that works for you. Don’t dive in head first because there’s no backing out once you’ve committed.
Think of it like a 10% beer. You know those guys (or gals) who go to the bar with their chests puffed out, saying they can handle it no problem. Then, after half a pint, they’re napping in a corner booth, crying about that time in high school they were stood up at prom, while everyone else is chipping in to get an Uber to drive them home. Yeah, that’s THC-O
A Beginner’s Guide to Enjoying THC-O
So you’ve decided to take the plunge and try some THC-O. You figure you’ve paid your dues — you’re a Delta-8 THC expert, and you know plenty about Delta-10 THC. On top of that, you’re an old-school smoker who spent years dabbling with different types of CBD. You’ve got a plan, you’ll have friends with you, and you’re ready to give THC-O a try.
Well, first things first, you have a couple of choices. Here at Diamond CBD, you have our Alibi THC-O Vape Cartridges. These sweet and potent carts are available in 800mg in various sweet flavors, including Super Sour Diesel, Frutti Pebbles, Girl Scout Cookies, and Strawnana. Now that’s a super-delish menu.
Of course, for those of you who are real hardcore, there are always brand new concentrates. With Chill Plus THC-O CBG Sugar Resin in Trainwreck, Grape Ape, Strawberry Blonde, and Banana Kush, you can rock the world with some powerful, potent compounds.
Now that you know what to use, the question remains how you will use it. Because THC-O takes you to a new plane of being, you’re going to want to become one with your friends and the world around you. Being outside is always fun, as long as you’re safe, as is listening to some very chill music. Dancing, talking, laughing, and more are all on the menu.
Personally, we like the following suggestion from Leafly: “Grab a few of your closest friends, pool all your art supplies, lay out a drop cloth, and take a small pull from an energizing THC-O strain like Trainwreck. Then, start creating—you could get weird with it or just draw little smiley faces depending on where the high takes you.”
However, you decide to enjoy your THC-O, you can do so comfortably, knowing that what you purchase from Diamond CBD is the best. So, until next time, when we find another cannabinoid for your pleasure, enjoy, be safe, and don’t forget to feel the buzz!
