How Does THCO Compare to CBD and Other Cannabinoids?
With the ever evolving world of cannabis, it’s tough to keep up with all of the latest and greatest strains and their benefits. You may be wondering, for example: what is THCO? If you haven’t heard of it, don’t worry; the Go Green Botanicals family is here to welcome and accept you into the broader cannabis community. We’re here to be your resource as well as to advocate for our community members. Now, let’s dive into THCO and then compare it to the other, more well-known cannabinoids.
What Is THCO?
Likely, the main reason you may not have heard of THCO is that it does not naturally occur in marijuana plants; but instead is curated in a laboratory setting. THCO stands for tetrahydrocannabinol-O and is, in many ways, an identical twin of the more well-known THC. Nicknamed the “psychedelic of cannabis,” THCO is approximately three times more potent than the more commonly-recognized Delta 9 THC. It is a cannabinoid, so consuming it produces a “high” that is similar, but more intense, than traditional THC. The chemical process to create THCO strips the compound of parts like flavonoids and terpenes. This process is also what leads to the uncharted highs associated with THCO.
Even with normal CBD and other cannabinoids, however, the resulting impacts will vary from person-to-person. Because people are different and will experience different stimulations from CBD, cannabinoids and THCO, we recommend that you reach out to specialists if you decide to try any of these substances. But if you are ready to try out a THCO product, stay tuned: we’ve got recommendations coming up!
Is THCO Legal?
There are contradicting reports surrounding the legality of THCO. While there are no active laws prohibiting the use or sale of THCO, there are arguments that it is restricted, like other CBD substances have experienced in the past. Those who believe it is legal argue that THCO is derived from the hemp plant, not marijuana, which contains Delta 9 but at a lower than legal limit. On the other hand, the Federal Analogue Act (FAA) of 1986 states that cannabinoids are Schedule 1 drugs and are therefore banned substances. As THCO grows in popularity, with flower, carts, vapes and much more, the legality will more than likely be a hot topic in the CBD world. At Go Green Botanicals, we pride ourselves on staying up to date on all things CBD and will keep you informed as we learn more.
What To Expect From THCO?
The reports on THCO experiences are not as numerous as those of other CBD or cannabidiol substances. The majority of those that are willing to share their experiences while taking THCO have discussed that it can take up to 30 minutes to experience an impact. Once it does hit, many have experienced a heavy, sedation feeling that can last for multiple hours and lead to introspective, or spiritual, journeys. Some reports even share that the high was similar to a LSD trip, which is very different from other CBD products. As we mentioned before, the experiences of those taking THCO will vary widely.

If you are interested in trying THCO for yourself and seeing what this chemically-created substance can do for you, we highly recommend buying from a reputable dealer and ensuring the substance was created in a safe environment.
