What is THC-O?

Also known as THC-O-Acetate, THC Acetate or ATHC, not to be confused with THCA - a precursor to THC, the new cannabinoid is a highly potent, synthetic compound extracted from hemp. 

It is said to be three times more potent than the famous THC and a user can get psychedelic with a moderate dose. That is probably due to its better bioavailability as a result of the unique functional group (-O). It implies it is absorbed better by the bloodstream and the body organs before the resulting THC takes effect. 

Though a lot is still unknown about how THCO interacts with the body's cannabinoid system, it's only natural it captures the attention of cannabis users for its strength. Regular users and the community aptly labeled it as a "spiritual cannabinoid." A minimal low intake should give almost the same kick as delta 9. Going above that may result in intense altered consciousness or incapacitate the user. Ultimately, THCO is more psychedelic than any THC available in the mainstream cannabis market.
