We have to admit that we are equally curious and excited about the latest legal cannabinoid to enter the marketplace. We are talking about THC-O and because it is still quite new, we are still learning what this compound can offer. However, our initial foray into this new cannabinoid territory has convinced us that THC-O has a legitimate and important place on your shelf of wellness products.
Most of the hoopla over THC-O stems from the fact that this compound has the capacity of creating psychedelic states (with higher dosages). While this particular trait of THC-O catches our interest, we are more fascinated that this compound actually offers multiple levels of effects, depending upon the quantity you consume in a session. Since we are all about providing as many options as possible for our valued clients, we find this feature of determining which effect will serve you best for your current situation to be highly appealing!
The more people are exposed to and try out the various cannabinoids contained in hemp plants, the more they buy into the wellness benefits that all these different cannabinoids deliver. Avid cannabinoid consumers will swear by the additional benefits realized through their own customized entourage effects, that awesome phenomenon that creates an enhancement of overall effects thanks to synergy.
With THC-O, you are introduced to entirely new effects, of which the most noticeable (and enjoyable!) is the potential to enter into a psychedelic state. For many consumers, this new experience allows for new insights and discoveries, often resulting in a measurable improvement in their overall lives.
However, THC-O is quite flexible, depending upon how much you consume. If you enjoy typical psychotropic effects (such as experienced when consuming Delta 8 THC or Delta 9 THC), this compound can also deliver that to your system. You simply consume a moderate amount for such effects.
Finally, some individuals are enjoying THC-O via microdosing. In this instance, small amounts are consumed, not enough to feel any psychotropic (or psychedelic) effect.
We are excited to offer you THC-O in distillate form. In this concentrated state, you find a much higher potency: 69.624% to be exact! And because this THC-O distillate is undiluted by other cannabinoids, you get to decide how you want to consume it: purely on its own or mixed with other cannabinoids.
Best of all, this product is delivered to you in syringes which allows you to more accurately measure the desired amount you wish to use in a given session.
THC-O IS SIGNIFICANTLY DIFFERENT THAN OTHER CANNABINOIDS! If you already consume cannabinoids containing psychotropic properties (like Delta 8 THC and/or Delta 9 THC), you will find its intermediate level of effects quite familiar. But if you increase your consumption of THC-O, you will not experience intensified psychotropic effects but will rather shift into a psychedelic state of mind and being.
As with any new physical or mental experience, a psychedelic effect may be startling and unsettling for first-time users. We recommend that you ensure you are in a healthy state of mind and body if you want to experience psychedelic effects. This advice holds true for both new and experienced consumers of THC-O. While a psychedelic state can deliver incredible and life-changing insights, it may also reveal past traumas that appear as realistic as when they originally occurred. Let common sense and the collective experience of thousands of individuals who have experienced and enjoyed psychedelic states guide you with this simple advice: for optimal effects, only seek out psychedelic experiences when you are in physically and emotionally strong states.
For your first time consuming this THC-O distillate, we recommend you begin low and slow. With a potency of almost 70%, each milliliter is packing a highly influential 700mg of THC-O. This means squeezing out 1/10th of a milliliter gives you a sizeable 70mg of THC-O to consume, more than enough for most consumers.
When first consuming this product, please wait at least 30 minutes (preferably one hour) before consuming more THC-O or other cannabinoids. By limiting your experience to the THC-O distillate alone, you are better able to assess its full effects on you. As with any cannabinoid, each person responds differently. While we can report general effects experienced by other consumers, your own experience may differ greatly.
USING THC-O DISTILLATE
One of the main reasons we deliver our THC-O distillate in syringes is the ease with which you can use it. You will find the consistency of this distillate to be similar to a light oil; it will express quite easily with a minimum of pressure.
We also include a screw-on cap that we recommend you keep on the tip of the syringe, only removing it when you wish to express a portion of the THC-O distillate. This ensures that your distillate remains pure and clean each time you use it.
WAYS TO CONSUME THC-O DISTILLATE
A great advantage of THC-O in a distillate form is the variety of methods you can employ to consume it. The most popular ways to consume THC-O distillate include:
- Cooking and Baking – it is easy to add drops to any recipe and works as effectively as cannabinoid-infusion techniques without requiring extra labor and attention
- Orally – add a drop or two to bread or a piece of fruit; if mixing into a beverage, stick with warm and hot drinks so it remains blended with the liquid longer
- Smoking – you can treat a CBD bud with a droplet (let it dry before grinding!) or smear the distillate across rolling papers when making joints
- Sublingually – place a drop or two under the tongue, and it will be delivered to your endocannabinoid system the same way a tincture is
- Vaporizing – any device designed to consume concentrated materials will work; you can add it to a cartridge but we cannot guarantee the reliability of any selected cartridge
Once again we want to emphasize the potentially stronger and different effects that THC-O can deliver; we have no other cannabinoid to which we can fairly compare THC-O effects. Consequently, we urge extra caution when consuming this highly potent and unusually effective product.
POSSIBLE EFFECTS FROM THC-O
As already mentioned, there are three types of effects that you can experience when consuming THC-O, as follows:
- Sub-Perceptual Effects – a minimal dose will not produce noticeable effects
- Psychoactive Effects – a moderate dose can create psychotropic effects
- Psychedelic Effects – a large dose can create psychedelic effects
Please note that different circumstances and environments can change effects and results, while different methods of consumption can deliver THC-O more effectively and faster than other methods.
When consumed in its purest form by vaporizing, expect a mild earthy flavor. Just a small puff with a vaporizer can produce strong vapor clouds, so again we urge you to exercise caution when vaporizing THC-O distillate. When consumed in foods or drinks, its flavor is mild enough that stronger flavors will likely mask the earthy taste. When adding to a fresh CBD hemp flower strain, expect it to slightly deepen and enhance the existing strain flavors.
Remember to start low and go slow!
TONING DOWN THC-O EFFECTS
Despite precautions, do not be surprised if once in a while you find yourself overwhelmed by the effects of THC-O. It can easily happen for a variety of reasons but fortunately, there are multiple tactics you can employ to counter such a situation, including:
- Breathing – controlled breathing can slow a racing heart and calm a disturbed mind
- CBD – a great way to offset THC effects (Delta 8 and 9 plus THC-O) happens to be CBD
- Furry Friends – getting comfort from the cats and dogs in your home can be very calming
- Hydrate – avoid dehydration by keeping a good supply of fresh water at your side
- Lemon Juice – the calming limonene terpene found in lemon juice can ease anxiety
- Pine Nuts – famous for helping you calm down, thanks to its high pinene content
- Talk – connecting with a friend or family member can give you assurance and a new outlook
- Walk – getting outside and moving around in the fresh air can ground you
Once you find what works best for you (often a combination of the above tips), be sure to have a ready supply for those times you may need it. Over time, you will learn to better manage your consumption of THC-O distillate, leading to fewer overwhelming experiences.
