What is THC-O?

THC-O is a synthetic compound derived from hemp itself. In chemical terms, it is called THC-O acetate. But it is known across the whole world simply as ‘THC-O’.

Now, since it is a synthetic compound, it is evident that the substance must be manufactured inside a laboratory. So how is it made?

THC-O is made by taking Delta 9 THC and adding some astringent chemicals to it. The chemicals that are added, help to bond the chemical with acetate as a result of which, THC-O is formed. This new substance can be found infused in many products including THC-O gummies and vape carts.

So, to put it all together, Delta 9 THC is a naturally occurring substance, which is put through an acetylating process in a lab to acquire THC-O. In short, Delta 9 is the analog version whereas THC-O is the synthesized version of the compound.

THC-O vs Delta 8 vs Delta 9 vs Delta 10

When it comes to comparing THC-O with Delta 8, Delta 9, or Delta 10, these substances differ in terms of their efficacy.

In simple words, it is your personal choice as to which one of the potencies you would like to experience. If you want a more potent high, THC-O is the substance you should be opting for. And if you prefer a rather mellow high, then Delta 8 would be a perfect pick.

Delta 9 and THC-O have significant differences. First of all, Delta 9 is a cannabinoid that occurs naturally in marijuana or hemp plants. Whereas THC-O is produced inside a restricted facility using the acetylating process. That is the reason why THC-O is called an acetate ester version of Delta 9.

Both of their effects also vary radically. THC-O comes with a higher percentage of bioavailability than Delta 9 THC. What this means is that your body can easily take on THC-O than it can take Delta 8 or Delta 9 respectively.

This also implies that THC-O has many heightened effects as compared to Delta 9. If observed closely, THC-O seems to be about 3 times stronger than Delta 9. That is the reason why THC-O disposable vape is preferred by people who crave an intense ‘high’.

Delta 10 has much milder effects than Delta 9. This particular compound (Delta 10) goes hand in hand with its sibling Delta 8. Both of these compounds have mellow effects.

The only difference in effect between Delta 10 and Delta 8 is, the latter’s effect is more sedative while the former produces a more active high.

And finally, when compared to THC-O, Delta 10 does not stand any way close to the effects produced by the former compound. THC-O is any day stronger, more potent, and produces greater psychoactive effects than Delta 10.


Cannabis and marijuana drug policies in the United States are complicated, and they can be confusing and unclear; THC-O laws are even more confusing, complex, and difficult.

THC-O is not illegal in the United States as long as it is derived from hemp. Hemp or cannabis with less than 0.3% of THC and its derivatives are legal according to the 2018 Farm Bill.

Therefore, since THC-O is a hemp-driven substance, it is technically legal in many states in the U.S. Therefore, automatically all the products that contain THC-O, including THC-O vape carts and THC-O pre-rolls are available widely across many regions in the states.

Let us now look at the list of states in the U.S where THC-O is legal- Alabama, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, South Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, etc.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is THC-O Safe?

Any intoxicating substance, be it Delta 8, Delta 9, or THC-O, cannot be regarded as ‘safe’. But, the fact is, all of these substances, if taken under a limitation, would not cause any side effects as such.

Can You Fail a Drug Test with THC-O?
