THCO acetate also known simply as “THCO” is a Delta 9 analog that functions similarly but also has some very distinguishing characteristics and effects in the body. Most intriguing of all is its proclaimed threefold potency over conventional THC. This cannabinoid was discovered over 50 years ago but has only recently begun to trend on the coattails of Delta 8’s market swell. In this article we will explore what this cannabinoid is, where it can be purchased and why it might or might not be the cannabinoid for you.
Unlike traditional Delta 9 THC which is an inherent byproduct of the Cannabis plant and can also be found in hemp, THCO is uniquely synthetic and cannot be naturally bred. Its synthesis can be concerning for some, however its synthetically deviant chemical structure is what appeals to others. Translation: THCO is not a naturally occurring cannabinoid, however it is far more potent than naturally occurring ones.
THCO is an acetylated form of Tetrahydrocannabinol that only manifests its effects on the body after being processed by your digestive system. It is an acetate ester of THC to be chemically precise. Inherent in the process of acetylation is an approximate 3fold potency increase. Unfortunately, It cannot exceed this threshold since cannabinoids already bond with fats with absolute efficiency. Since it is a chemical byproduct of digestion, impact can sometimes take an hour to occur. It is important to note that since this cannabinoid is so much more potent than traditional THC (both Delta 8 & 9), even experienced users should be conservative with initial dosage, especially when dealing with edibles.

THCO Vs. THC.
Naturally occurring THC in cannabis has been consumed since 489 BC., originally in present day China. Cute? Sure. THCO however was first isolated over 50 years ago as an experiment by the US Army Chemical Corps, in order to develop a non lethal cannabinoid variant that would incapacitate the enemy. THCO was eventually synthesized into a less potent form that is only recreationally incapacitating after the third toke. If that doesn't sound awesome to you, stick to your Vegan gummies.
