An extremely unique, and for that same reason, extremely mysterious cannabinoid. THC-O Acetate is a synthesized cannabinoid. In words that have been spoken before by others; this basically means that you cannot actually extract it from the cannabis plant.

But wait:

How can you obtain THC-O Acetate and more importantly, why should you?

First off, you can buy THC-O online directly through the Binoid website. But it’s also far from the only thing you’ll be able to find on there. You’ll also have access to top-notch CBD, Delta 8, and Delta 10 products, among a few other things. Better yet, you can purchase it now from the comfort of your own home and get it right to your doorstep, quickly!

As for THC-O products specifically, Binoid CBD offers THC-O vape cartridges, THC-O disposable vape pen, THC-O tinctures, as well as THCO tincture bundles, but we encourage you to take a look for yourself and decide what suits you best.

THC-O In a Nutshell

For starters, you can expect it to be at least 3x more potent than Delta 9 THC. To put things into perspective, that is, 3x more potent than the main reason why you, me, and many others started to consume cannabis in the first place.

So, based on basic math, we should like it 3x more. That’s the way it works, right?

But even though it is a synthesized derivative of THC, it can be derived from the hemp plant. But we’ll leave that explanation for another article. This puts the synthetic cannabinoid in a grey area when it comes to legality and regulations.

Because all hemp derivatives are usually considered federally regulated (as long as they contain no more than 0.3% D9 THC), then THC-O Acetate probably falls under that same category. But our experience with other THC derivatives like D8 and D10 THCs has made us a bit wary on the subject of legality.

So we’ve decided to put a stop to that ambiguity and tried to tackle the topic from a perspective that makes sense.

What Is The Legal Status Of THC-O Acetate?

To your potential surprise, THC-O has not yet been declared an illegal substance on a federal level. So the belief that it falls under the 2018 Farm Bill remains true.

In other words:

If you thought that because it’s ultimately derived from hemp then it is legal is actually a true statement. But to that same fact, we say, the hemp plant itself falls under that category for sure and we still have trouble with it in certain states. But that’s something that the country and regulations will ultimately catch up to.

That said:

Is THC-O Acetate federally legal? The answer is, likely, but not certainly. As we explained before, other products like Delta 8, Delta 10, and CBD are also derived from hemp and comply with the 2018 Farm Bill wording, nevertheless, confusion seems to reign supreme.

That’s why you want to always purchase your products from trustworthy brands like Binoid that will let you know where they can ship to and how they can ship to you. That way you won’t have trust issues with who you’re buying from or fear that your product will never make it to your doorstep.

But wait:

There’s an extra cherry on top when it comes to confusion. Some states have explicitly banned synthetic cannabinoids, so you will definitely need a trustworthy source like Binoid, and it wouldn’t hurt to read up on your state’s THC regulations.

So even if we are not able to conclusively prove where THC-O is legal at the moment, we can say that legality seems to take the following shape state-by-state and based on synthetic cannabinoid bans.
