THC-O: Can This Cannabinoid Cause Psychedelic Highs?

Yes, it can, but only through the safest and most reliable products. Created with ELYXR.

What if there was a cannabinoid that produced a high resembling the effects of your favorite psychedelic substance?

While you might think federally illegal Delta-9 THC will give you the ultimate cannabis high, that’s just not the case. In fact, there’s a legal hemp-derived cannabinoid on the market that’s roughly three times more potent than Delta-9 THC. Welcome to THC-O.

What Is THC-O?

As mentioned above, THC-O is a synthetic cannabinoid derived from the hemp plant. Don’t let its synthetic nature steer you away from trying it, as it’s simply just another addition to the industry’s long list of modern technological advancements. However, in order to ensure you’re getting the safest THC-O available on the market, you’d ideally want to check out a company’s testing procedures and if they examine products through third-party labs.

Some of the most reliable, strong, and safe THC-O goods on the market come from ELYXR, like its THC-O Cartridge 1 Gram. This cart is available in a whopping 14 different strains, from Indicas and Sativas to balanced Hybrids.

Manufacturing THC-O

Producing the THC-O cannabinoid takes a few steps. The first is isolating CBD from the hemp plant that contains less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC (the popular cannabinoid responsible for the familiar cannabis-induced high).

Once CBD is extracted, manufacturers then extract Delta-8 THC from CBD. In order to produce THC-O, Delta-8 THC molecules must be mixed with a solvent, most commonly organic acetic anhydride, which removes all terpenes and flavinoids to make for a purely potent and thick THC isolate.

If you’re more of a traditional cannabis user and not too sure about switching up your flower-smoking routine, check out ELYXR’s THC-O Flower.

These buds come in 5 different strains. We suggest choosing one you’re familiar with to feel the effects and notice the differences between a powerful THC-O flower and your usual Delta-9 strains. The flower comes in 1/8, 1/4, 1oz, 1/2lb, and even one whole pound.

THC-O Effects

You might be asking, why THC-O? Although we stated it’s much more potent than Delta-9 THC, some users aren’t just looking for a bewildering semi-psychedelic experience. Because this synthetic cannabinoid is extremely powerful, it can be a great tool to combat pain and stress for those with severe chronic pain and mental illnesses.

Some of the main effects you’ll feel after dosing a heavy-hitting product like ELYXR’s THC-O Gummies in 500mg per package are physical and mental relief. We must mention that this cannabinoid takes some time to kick in when dosed through tinctures and edibles, but you’ll recognize when it takes effect by feeling waves of relaxation deeply throughout the body.

Quickly following relaxation is intense euphoria with slight visual hallucinations that make colors appear brighter and more vibrant. Something that every seasoned user will appreciate is that THC-O takes you back to those days when your tolerance was so low, you were giggling and slightly disoriented after a couple of puffs (or bites).

If you’re looking for that high you had the first time using cannabis with an added psychedelic boost, look no further than THC-O. Click here to browse ELYXR’s THC-O products that are leading by example through potent effects, safe lab testing, and FDA-approved manufacturing.
