What is THC-O?

Updated: February 2023

As of February 2023, the DEA has come out and declared THC-O as a controlled substance. Modus is not producing or selling any products that contain THC-O or other illegal controlled substances. Some of this information in the article might be outdated.

Have you ever wished there is a stronger version of Delta 9 (THC)? Well, THC-O may just be what you were wishing for. So, what is THC-O? THC-O is short for THC-O acetate. This synthetic cannabinoid is three times more powerful than THC and up to five times more potent than Delta 8 THC. It is known to produce a borderline psychedelic high.

THC O is often described as the synthetic analog of THC. It is usually made by extracting Delta 8 THC from CBD and then synthesized to THC-O through a chemical process. The reason THC-O is more potent than THC is that it has a higher bioavailability rate.

THC-O effects may vary depending on the individual. However, it is associated with a relaxation-inducing, body high. It also delivers a sprinkle of euphoria along with potentially psychedelic experiences.

Benefits of THC-O

Due to the long-standing criminalization of cannabis, there is barely any research into the benefits of many cannabinoids like THC-O. Anecdotal evidence shows that THC-O has many of the same benefits associated with THC. This includes pain relief, inducing appetite, and promoting a more balanced sleep-wake cycle.

The effects of THC-O may vary from person to person. Therefore, we recommend experimenting with this cannabinoid cautiously, and always consult your doctor if you have any concerns about usage.

Is THC-O Safe?

Since it is a synthetic cannabinoid, the safety of THC-O is highly debated. One key difference between THCO and other synthetic cannabinoids is the fact that it shares a very similar chemical structure to THC. See more on the differences between THC, THC-O, and THC-P.

The best way to ensure that any THC-O product you buy is safe is to always buy from a reputable lab-tested brand like Modus. The process of synthesizing THC-O involves using chemical compounds and complex processes. If it is not done under the right conditions or by experts, the product could be potentially unsafe.

Is THC-O Legal?

The legal status of THC-O is not quite clear. The 2018 Farm Bill did not explicitly mention THC-O. However, since it is a hemp-derived product, it is covered by the bill and is technically legal. Nonetheless, we recommend that you check your local laws before purchasing any THC-O products.

As of February 2023, the DEA has come out and declared THC-O as a controlled substance.


Top-Selling THC-O Brands

Several THC-O products have appeared on the market in the last few years. They include THC O disposables, THC O cartridges, and more. Some top brands offering THC-O products include Koi CBD, Delta Extrax, and Binoid, among others.

As indicated above, the quality of a THC-O product can determine whether it’s safe and also influence the intensity of the effects it produces.
