It’s no secret that the hemp plant can be a source of many cannabinoids that help you feel and function better. Before the 2018 Farm Bill, CBD was the only widely used hemp-derived cannabinoid for promoting wellness. That’s no longer the case. The bill’s passage opened the door for many more hemp-derived cannabinoids -- like the now highly sought-after Delta 8 and, more recently, THC-O.
Although these new cannabinoids have not taken away from the popularity and benefits of CBD, people are now becoming growingly aware of how the hemp plant can be a source of many more beneficial cannabinoids. You have probably heard about how these compounds can play a valuable role in your wellness routine by supporting more restful sleep and boosting relaxation. This is precisely what THC-O is about.
At Koi CBD, we keep a keen eye on the latest trends for our customers. We are among the first brand to produce reliably high-quality and safe THC-O products. In our catalog, you’ll find two ways to experience the compound’s benefits: THC-O carts and THC-O gummies.
Edibles like gummies are perhaps the most preferred way of enjoying cannabinoids because they’re straightforward to use and come in delicious flavors. If you look at our range of THC-O gummies, you’ll see there’s a flavor option for everyone. No matter what flavor you choose, you can expect your gummy to have a refreshingly-fruit flavor with a consistent concentration of THC-O and its powerfully introspective and relaxing effects.
What is THC-O?
THC-O is a powerful cannabinoid that has strongly-potent introspective effects in most people. You may see it referred to by various names, but THC-O or THC-O acetate are most common. THC-O is the acetylated version of conventional THC, with subtle differences in their chemical structures.
Most people wondering what THC-O is are curious about where the compound comes from. Rather than being found naturally in the plant, THC-O is created using natural CBD. A multistep process converts CBD into THC-O.
THC-O has uniquely powerful, relaxing effects often described as “introspective” that stimulate deep thought. Some also say THC-O can be helpful for better sleep and discomfort support, although its most popular use is to unwind while simultaneously stimulating the mind.
What are THC-O Gummies?
THC-O gummies are a delicious and enjoyable way to experience THC-O benefits. They are soft and sweet bite-sized edibles infused with THC-O. The gummies come in various fruit flavors, allowing you to pick your favorite.
THC-O gummies can be the perfect choice, whether you’re well-experienced with the compound or an inexperienced THC-O appreciator who wants to take your experience slow and enjoy it. The gummies contain a consistent concentration of THC-O, so you can easily create a serving that works best for you: Increase your intake by taking more or reducing it by cutting the gummies in halves or quarters.
And if flavor is your thing, there’s a good chance you will like our THC-O gummies range. We know everyone has their preference, so go ahead and select your go-to from our diverse flavor profile.
Is THC-O the Same as Delta 8, Delta 10, or CBD?
With the influx of new cannabinoids in recent months, it’s not unusual if you’ve lost track of what is what.
First and foremost, THC-O is a cannabinoid just like CBD, Delta 8, Delta 9, and Delta 10. But it has a unique chemical profile that allows it to be more easily absorbed, which explains why its cerebral and body effects are more powerful than others. That’s also why it tends to be best for those with real cannabinoid experience or who have built tolerance over the years and are looking for more powerful effects.
Unlike with CBD, not much research has investigated newer cannabinoids like THC-O, Delta 8, 9, or 10. Early findings and anecdotal evidence suggest that these cannabinoids can help promote a sense of calmness, relaxation, and mood enhancement.
THC-O also stands out because it is an acetylated version of traditional THC. Unlike other cannabinoids, it doesn’t occur naturally in the hemp plant. Instead, it is created from naturally occurring CBD extracted from the hemp plant.
The creation process follows multiple steps that involve acids and filtration. The final results in a cannabinoid with a chemical profile similar to other types of THC with the addition of an acetyl group for easier absorption and strong introspective and body effects.
Is THC-O the Same as THC-P?
THC-O and THC-P share some similarities but are different cannabinoids. They both have exceptionally potent effects on most people, although THC-O tends to not produce as strong effects compared to THC-P. The effects of THC-O are best described by most as spiritual or deep-thinking effects, while THC-P effects are largely full-body relaxation.
Also, effects from THC-P products tend to kick in faster, while THC-O results can be delayed even with fast-acting intake methods like vaping.
THC-P is a naturally occurring cannabinoid in the hemp plant. THC-O, on the other hand, is converted from CBD. THC-P is a relatively new compound that has only recently been discovered. THC-O has been around for quite some time and was at the center of a U.S. Military scientists’ study in 1949. Want to learn more about how they differ? Check out our blog explaining what is THC-P.
Why THC-O Gummies?
While there are many types to choose from, edible products are among the most preferred method for taking cannabinoids for two primary reasons: 1) They are easy to consume, and 2) They come in various delicious flavors. THC-O gummies present a unique and tasty way for hemp consumers to enjoy the benefits of THC-O without purchasing additional equipment or having to measure out their servings.
THC-O gummies come in a multitude of flavors that make experiencing the benefits of THC-O more enjoyable. THC-O gummies are pre-measured with a verified amount of cannabinoid, so you can be sure about your THC-O intake. Not everyone needs the same amount of THC-O, and THC-O gummies make it easy to take more if you’re looking for stronger effects or to cut them in half if you’re looking for only mild effects or are inexperienced with THC-O.
Gummies have no setup or maintenance requirements. Simply remove the gummy from the packaging, place it in your mouth and enjoy. Keep in mind that It can take up to two hours to feel the effects, so don’t be in a rush to take another gummy before allowing enough time for the effects of the first one to kick in.
Lastly, compared to other methods, taking THC-O gummies and other edibles releases the cannabinoid slowly into the bloodstream over a more extended period for sustained effects.
Benefits of THC-O Gummies
If you’re looking for the best THC-O gummies, you’re not alone. The truth is-- the demand for THC-O is quickly rising. More and more people have become aware of its powerful introspective effects and relaxing benefits. That’s why at Koi CBD, we offer multiple THC-O products so you can find reliably high-quality and safe products you can trust. The most sought after in our range? THC-O gummies because of the unique advantages they offer, which include:
Methods like vaping THC-O carts deliver rapid, intense effects that last for a shorter time. For most, the experience with THC-O gummies is the opposite. When taking gummies, you can expect them to take some time to metabolize and get absorbed into the body. Small amounts of the active compound are absorbed over time. At first, the effects are subtle. They gradually increase until reaching their peak, and are sustained for a while.
THC-O gummies make the act of using THC-O an even more enjoyable experience. At Koi, we make it more enticing by offering our gummies in various delicious and enticing fruit flavors. And if you’d prefer to be discreet, you’ll be happy to see that our gummies look like any other wellness gummy you may take regularly, and most people can’t tell the difference.
Discreet and portable
Packed in a convenient 20-count jar, our THC-O gummies are portable and ready to use out of the package. Each gummy contains a consistent concentration of THC-O, so you don’t have to carry any additional equipment or measure your servings. They can be perfect for anyone unwinding at the end of a regular workday, as well as for campers and road warriors away from home for prolonged periods. Whether kept at home or taken with you on the go, gummies easily make THC-O a part of your day.
Gummies make it easy to increase or decrease your intake of THC-O, depending on your personal preference and tolerance. The truth is—the right amount of THC-O can vary person-to-person. You may enjoy taking more or less of the compound than someone else. Individual gummies contain a consistent serving of THC-O, so you know exactly how much THC-O you consume. You can simply take a second gummy for more THC-O or subdivide a gummy into smaller portions for less, depending on your preferred THC-O intake.
No disrupting scents or vapor clouds
You may prefer the less invasive experience of gummies compared to some other types of products. While vaping and smoking THC-O products is the fastest method for experiencing THC-O effects, gummies provide an alternative for those who prefer to avoid smoke or find inhaling THC-O too intense. Gummies are smoke and vapor free and they don’t produce a scent the same way smoking does, which could bother those around you.
Who Should Use THC-O Gummies?
THC-O gummies are a great choice for anyone interested in giving THC-O a try or making it a part of their unwinding routine. They are especially suited for anyone who values great flavors and simplicity while enjoying the experience that THC-O offers.
Gummies are easier to control THC-O concentration per serving, which makes them ideal for inexperienced users who are still figuring out their perfect session. Gummies make it easier to determine how much THC-O is right for you and how you should adjust depending on the effects you feel.
THC-O has unique effects compared to other cannabinoids. THC-O gummies are ideal for consumers and hemp appreciators looking for intense introspective effects, mood support, deep relaxation, and other wellness benefits.
What to Expect When You Take THC-O Gummies
Most people that have taken THC-O gummies describe having a positive experience after taking the product.
When taking THC-O gummies, the intensity of the effects increases gradually, leading to a feeling of mindfulness, relaxation, and introspective calmness. Some people that have taken THC-O gummies have also reported experiencing natural support for discomfort and sleep.
When taking THC-O gummies, keep in mind the effects might take up to two hours to kick in, as the active compound is gradually released into the body through digestion. To set yourself up for a positive experience, allow enough time to feel the effects before taking another gummy.
Who Shouldn’t Take THC-O Gummies?
THC-O gummies should only be used by adults 21 years or older. If you haven’t tried any THC products before, you should approach THC-O gummies with caution. Those entirely new to intoxicating compounds will perhaps do best by first trying something with more subtle effects and a lower potency before trying THC-O gummies.
THC-O may or may not interact with other substances. So, you shouldn’t take THC-O gummies if you have any long-term illnesses or are under prescription medicine before talking with your physician first. Because THC-O has strong elevating effects, you should not drive or operate heavy machinery after taking THC-O gummies.
Because THC-O is chemically similar to conventional THC, we recommend you avoid using products with THC-O if you’re subjected to regular drug testing. Although THC-O is federally legal, most drug tests can’t distinguish it from conventional THC because they have similar metabolites, which trigger a positive result.
Do THC-O Gummies Have any Side Effects?
THC-O gummies are generally well-tolerated by adults. Most people that have used THC-O gummies have reported positive effects, with no severe reactions. People can and do react differently when they take any type of cannabinoid product, including THC-O gummies.
There is a chance that mild side effects can occur, particularly when consumed in too high amounts. First-time users may not fully understand their tolerance and take too many gummies. In these cases, some of the common side effects associated with THC-O gummies include:
- Food cravings
- Dry mouth
- Red eyes
- Trouble focusing
You can reduce the chances of experiencing these side effects by starting with a small THC-O serving (1/4 or 1/2 gummy) and then gradually increasing the number of gummies as you dial in on the right amount of the cannabinoid for you.
What to Consider When Buying THC-O Gummies?
Buying THC-O gummies online requires careful consideration and research. While there are multiple suppliers of THC-O gummies, they are not made equal. Some are better quality and tested more rigorously than others and contain a more consistent potency so that you experience better results.
Research the brand
You can avoid buying low-quality THC-O gummies by researching the brand you’re considering. Determine how long the brand has been in business and whether it is credible. Cannabinoid forums and third-party review websites are other great places to forage for reviews to ensure the brand is reputable and makes the best quality THC-O gummies.
THC-O might not occur naturally in the hemp plant, but it is made by converting naturally occurring CBD extracted from the hemp plant. That makes the hemp source a critical factor when selecting the best THC-O gummies to purchase.
Ensure you choose THC-O made from high-quality hemp grown in controlled environments and nutrient-rich soils.
Besides the hemp source, the CBD extraction method is also a concern. There are several extraction methods for CBD, but not all of them yield the same purity. Ideally, you want THC-O made from Co2 extracted CBD because of the purity and reduced exposure to contamination of the CBD extract. Other methods may involve solvents that can contaminate the extract and affect the potency and purity of THC-O.
THC-O gummies bring together multiple ingredients. You can take each into account and ensure the gummies are made from safe, food-grade ingredients. Reputable brands will have a full list of ingredients that you can scrutinize to ensure the ingredients are safe for consumption.
Lab test results
Responsible THC-O gummies manufacturers subject their gummies to third-party lab testing to verify potency and purity. The results confirm the concentration of the gummies and test for contaminants. Check these third-party lab results, called certificates of analysis, to get the full profile of the THC-O gummies.
Read the label
Before consuming any THC-O gummies, always have a look at the label. The label will provide you with information like:
- The expiration date
- The ingredients list
- Concentration per gummy
- Suggested servings
Double-check and Google any terms on the ingredients list that you don’t understand to ensure they align with your nutritional considerations.
