THC-O FAQ

What is THC-O?


THC-O Acetate, also known as THC-O is one of the latest, most cutting-edge hemp-derived cannabinoids on the market today. It is a hemp-derived synthetic compound that is made when acetic anhydride is mixed with Delta 8. THC-O is known for being highly potent and is said to be even stronger than psychoactive Delta 9. 


The Effects of THC-O


So, how does THC-O make you feel? The effects of THC-O vary from person to person, and your experience will be contingent on how you ingest it and what strain you choose.


Here are the main effects of THC-O that users report:


- Increased appetite

- Reduced stress

- Decreased anxiety

- Reduced nausea

- A sense of euphoria

- Visual hallucinations


When it comes to creating your desired experience, it’s all about picking the right strain. If you’re more concerned with energy and focus a Sativa blend could be a good fit for you. Sativa is an excellent option for daytime use as it will keep you alert while stimulating creativity. On the other hand, if you’re looking for something to help you unwind after a long day or fall asleep quickly, an Indica blend would be your best bet. If you don’t want to choose between one or the other, our Hybrid products provide a mixture of both Sativa and Indica’s effects. 


It’s important to note that the effects of gummies may be delayed up to 45 minutes from the time of ingestion. Tinctures work faster than edibles, but there is also a delay. If you’d rather not wait, our THC carts work by absorbing vapor into your lungs, and they are the fastest working form of THC-O.


Is THC-O Right For Me?


Due to its potency, THC-O may not be for everyone, but it is a be a great option for those seeking a highly psychoactive experience. Additionally, THC-O could work well for those who are looking for pain relief and have not had luck with other cannabinoids because of the way THC-O binds to cannabinoid receptors in the brain. This cannabinoid is a great option if you would like to reap the benefits of traditional THC, but live in a state where recreational marijuana use is still illegal. 


What is Delta 9 THC?


Delta 9 or Delta 9-Tetrahydrocannabinol is the traditional version of THC and is the active ingredient in the Marijuana plant. This cannabinoid provides the typical “high” associated with cannabis products, and it is currently federally illegal in most states in the U.S. 



What is the Difference Between Delta 9 and THC-O?


The biggest difference that separates Delta 9 from THC-O, is that THC-O is federally legal in the United States, whereas Delta 9 is legal in some states, but federally illegal. THC-O has a similar euphoric effect on the body to Delta 9, but users report having a more psychoactive, almost psychedelic experience while using THC-O.  



What Makes CBD Different From THC?


The biggest thing that makes CBD, or Cannabidiol, different from THC, Tetrahydrocannabinol, is the fact that CBD isn’t psychoactive, and therefore won’t give you the “high feeling that THC products do. However, CBD still has a multitude of beneficial medicinal qualities for many users. THC has many of the same medicinal properties as CBD but also gives users a psychoactive experience.



Is THC-O Legal?


THC-O is fully legal under federal law due to the 2018 Farm Bill. Also known as the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, this legislation changed the legal classification of hemp from a controlled substance to an agricultural commodity. Wording within the bill states that any cannabis derivative containing less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC would no longer be defined as marijuana in regards to the controlled substances act. Because THC-O contains less than 0.3% of Delta 9, it is legal to produce, distribute, and sell in the United States. 


However, each state makes its own rules and regulations in regards to hemp products, and multiple states, including Utah, Rhode Island, Montana, Mississippi, Iowa, Idaho, Delaware, Colorado, Arkansas, Arizona, and Alaska, have either restricted or banned THC-O. 


As long as you live in a state that has not outlawed Delta 8, you can purchase Delta 8 products online and have them shipped directly to your door. For the fastest shipping and the highest quality Delta 8 products, check out our lineup here at Elyxr.



Is It Legal to Ship THC-O? 


Hemp products like THC-O can safely and legally be shipped through the United States Postal Service (USPS) to most states, however, we cannot ship to multiple states that have strict hemp laws. Information on hemp laws by specific states can be found here.   




Can Anyone Purchase THC-O?


There is not currently a federal minimum age requirement to purchase THC-O, however, some states require consumers to be 21 years old or older to purchase cannabis products. It’s always a good idea to check your specific state’s requirements before attempting to purchase hemp products. 



Where Can I Get THC-O?


If you live in a state where THC-O is legal you can get this cannabinoid shipped to your home from a multitude of online stores. However, it’s important to be very selective about where you get your cannabis products from. You can ensure that you are getting high-quality hemp products if the company you are purchasing from provides a Certificate of Analysis (COA) for its products. A COA certifies that a company has conducted a thorough lab analysis on its products and that those products meet certain quality and safety standards.
