THCO Capsules – Pop In for A Good Time
THCO capsules are the newest and easiest way to reap the buzzy benefits of THCO. Although THCO may seem like a newly discovered compound, it’s actually been around since the last century, but it has certainly made a heroic compound following the hemp market boom after the plant’s federal legalization.
Nowadays, the cannabinoid market is filled to the brim with innovation, and THCO capsules are just the next big thing to come out of the great minds in the cannabis game. If you’re itching to know more about THCO itself, as well as what makes it so desirable in its capsule form, you’ve come to the right place!
What Are THCO Capsules?
THCO capsules are exactly what they sound like: prefilled, swallowable capsules containing THCO. But why use capsules over other THCO products? The answer is simple, they’re easy to dose, easy to use, and extremely discrete. Our THCO capsules are straight to the point. They’re taken orally, like edibles, but they don’t contain any flavoring and don’t involve chewing.
In other words, THCO capsules are the easiest and most convenient way to use THCO, whether as part of your daily morning or night routine or if you’re on the go!
But what exactly is THCO, and what makes it so desirable in capsule form?
What is THCO?
THCO, also known as tetrahydrocannabinol acetate (or THC-O acetate), is a hemp-derived cannabinoid. Unlike other compounds like delta 8 and delta 10, however, THCO does not occur naturally in the cannabis plant, meaning scientists have to create it synthetically.
THCO is created through a process in which scientists alter the properties of hemp-derived cannabidiol. In simplified terms, CBD is converted into delta 8 and mixed with a chemical compound known as acetic anhydride.
Although this compound may seem like a newly discovered cannabinoid, the US military has actually been researching its effects since the mid 20th century.
This synthetic compound is made with power and potency in mind. With strong psychotropic effects and reports of psychedelic experiences, THC-O is not for beginners.
Are THCO Capsules Legal?
THCO products, including THCO Capsules, are considered legal under the Farm Bill of 2018. Also known as the Agriculture Improvement Act, the Farm Bill legalized hemp and hemp derivatives containing up to 0.3% THC on a dry-weight basis. This means that, as long as the capsule contains 0.3% THC or less, it is considered legal at the federal level.
That said, some individual states have taken the steps to heavily restrict or flat-out ban hemp-derived cannabinoids, including THCO products. These states include:
- New York
- Rhode Island
If you live in these states, our THCO capsules are not available for online ordering, so be sure to check your state’s hemp legislation before placing an order!
Understanding the Different Capsules Available at Diamond
At Diamond, we don’t just offer THCO capsules. We actually offer a variety of our cannabinoids and compounds in capsule form. Before purchasing any capsule, it’s important to understand the differences and similarities between all your options so you can make an informed decision.
Effects of the Compound
Which type of capsule you choose depends entirely on the properties you crave. Additionally, it’s important keep a look out for the psychoactive effects of each compound. HHC, delta 8, and THCO, for example, all provide different levels of psychoactive properties, while CBD, melatonin, CBN, and CBDV are all non-psychoactive.
How to Take THCO Capsules
Taking THCO capsules is just as easy as taking any other capsule. Simply follow the instructions on the packaging of your product and don’t take more than the recommended dose. In order to take these products, just grab a capsule from its packaging and swallow it as you would any other pill. A glass of water won't hurt!
A potential downside of THCO capsules is that, unlike gummies or vapes, you can’t just cut them in half or take a smaller drag than you’re supposed to. There’s no way of making each individual dose smaller, so be sure to understand your body’s tolerance levels and the effects different dosages of THCO will create.
Although dosing isn't an exact science, as it depends on factors like age, weight, metabolism rate, and desired effects, we like to recommend different dosages based on tiers of experience:
- Beginners with a low tolerance: 3-10mg
- Intermediates with a medium tolerance: 10-25mg
- Experienced users with a high tolerance: 25-50mg+
Benefits of THCO Capsules
THCO capsules have many benefits just for being capsules alone. First off, no one will question you popping a capsule because they look like any other health supplement, and their small and unassuming container means you can take them virtually everywhere without so much as a second glance. That said, THCO is a prodrug, meaning it isn't active until it is metabolized by the body. Thus, you’ll need to wait a few hours for your body to fully metabolize the product before it can take effect.
Once it does take effect, however, THCO capsules will make you feel:
- Enhanced visuals
- Enhanced sound
Additionally, some scientific research has suggested that THCO has some beneficial effects, including:
- Increased appetite
- Sleep supportive properties
- Pain and stress relief
- Enhanced creativity
- Bodily relief
- Anxiolytic properties
Additionally, THCO has been said to cause psychedelic, almost LSD-like effects when taken in high enough doses. If this doesn’t sound like your thing, be sure to dose low as the compound has pretty strong psychoactive effects even when taken in moderation. If tripping out for a little while sounds like your cup of tea, you’re in luck!
Are THCO Capsules Safe?
THCO is just a stronger analog of delta 9 and therefore shares a very similar safety profile. THC-O has never been associated with overdoses or deaths. Scientists seem to agree THCO doesn't pose the same health risks as synthetic "non-classical" cannabinoids.
The term "non-classical" refers to a chemical structure unrelated to THC or other cannabinoids, such as K2 or Spice. THCO is not associated with these compounds, because unlike these other compounds, THCO is made from organic hemp material.
That said, any cannabinoid comes with the risk of unpleasant side effects. Some potential side effects of THCO include:
- Dry mouth
- Red eyes
Even so, you should keep in mind that the chance of any of the above happening is minimal.
It's important to assess the quality of your manufacturer before taking cannabinoids. Because the FDA does not monitor hemp-derived cannabinoids, it's up to individual companies to establish safety standards.
At Diamond, we strive to provide our customers with the safest, purest, and most effective products available. Free of harmful additives, carcinogens, or other chemicals, our entire manufacturing process adheres to the highest possible standards.
In addition to being organic, American-grown, and free of pesticides and herbicides, our cannabinoids are carefully and precisely extracted by scientists committed to safety. We then conduct third-party lab testing on all of our products to ensure that only the safest products reach the shelves. Additionally, our lab tests are available for your inspection.
THCO Capsules: Final Thoughts
If you’re looking to reap the effects of THCO in an easy, convenient, and hassle-free way, THCO capsules are the product you’ve been looking for. Equipped with euphoric, relaxing, stress-relieving, and appetite-stimulating properties, these tiny products pack a big punch.
Remember, dosing is important when it comes to THCO due to the compound’s heightened potency, but as long as you take your tolerance and desired effects into consideration when taking these buzzy pills, you’re certain to have a blast!
