So you want to try THC-O? You think you have what it take? Sure, you’re an old pro when it comes to cannabis — after all, you’ve been partaking in the green stuff for years. And you’ve also been experimenting with all of the new hemp-derived compounds. Delta-8, Delta-10, Active CBD, you’ve tried and conquered them all. Which means there’s only one thing left for you to do.
You need to pull up your big kid pants and get down and dirty with THC-O.
But it’s important to note that THC-O isn’t all fun and games. We’re talking one serious hemp extract here, which means you want to use it correctly — and safely. There’s no shame in saying this one’s not for you. Knowing your limits is what makes you tough; exceeding them without thought makes you careless. But okay, now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s talk.
Let’s talk about the ups, downs, benefits, and pleasures of THC-O.
“THC-O’s appeal lies in its potency and its legal status. Research has found that it’s roughly three times stronger than conventional THC. It has been called “the psychedelic cannabinoid” for its borderline hallucinatory effects. Because it’s derived from federally legal hemp, THC-O products are becoming increasingly popular in the states where consumers don’t have access to legal, state-licensed delta-9 THC products,” writes Leafly.
“And now that delta-8 THC, its trendy cousin, has been outlawed in some states across the country and flagged by the DEA, THC-O’s star may rise even faster,” the site continues.
So what exactly is THCO, and why should you try it? Well, for all of you who are anxiously awaiting THC-O or THC-O acetate is a brand new legal compound that offers users a sweet buzz. The high is quite potent, so much so that should you decide to try some, you’ll want to cancel your plans for the day. Unlike Delta-8 THC or Delta-10, THC-O is the type of compound that a person chills out with. You’re going to sit on the couch and watch Netflix all day. Pretty bad Netflix, too, not the good stuff like Cobra Kai. We’re talking reality shows.
Anyway, the stuff is pretty new on the scene and quite challenging to produce, which is why you don’t see it in too many places. However, here at the CBD Mall, we’ve got a slew of brand new THCO products from Alibi that we think you’re going to love. And not only is THCO a hemp-derived cannabinoid with a banging buzz, but it’s pretty safe too.
“THC-O starts with a naturally occurring form of THC, but goes through synthesis in a lab to make something far more powerful than even standard THC,” writes Leafly.
“This potent high can even be derived from hemp, so depending on where you live, you can likely get it in the mail instead of visiting a dispensary. That being said, there is still some debate about whether THC-O constitutes ‘synthetic THC’ under federal law, which is still a controlled substance and illegal even when derived from hemp, so proceed with caution. Because it can only be made in a lab under very specific conditions, any THC-O product is only going to be as good as its manufacturer,” the article continued.
So Tell Me More About THC-O
Well, now that you’ve made the jump and decided that THC-O is for you, we’re glad to help you learn as much as possible about this new and wonderful cannabinoid. But first things, first, what does THC-O feel like? Is it like Delta-8 THC with its all-natural hemp-derived buzz? Or is it more like Delta-10 THC, which gives you energy and motivation? Maybe THC-O has a more CBD-like feeling that relaxes you in subtle ways?
Or maybe, just maybe, THC-O is nothing like any of those cannabinoids?
Well, the truth is, THC-O is probably the boldest, most potent cannabinoid to hit the market since cannabis itself. For those of you not used to trying compounds with a psychotropic high, you’ll want to take things very slowly. And for those of you who have been climbing the ladder in products like Delta-8 and Delta-10, even you will want to go at a steady pace, as THC-O may knock you down. It’s a great cannabinoid, one that’s filled with many pleasures, but it is potent and needs to be respected.
In other words, THC-O is a beast. Both newbies and veteran cannabinoid users should want to start slow and work their way up. Find the correct dose that works for you, and don’t dive in head first because there’s no backing out once you’ve committed.
Think of it like a 10% beer. You know those guys (or gals) who go to the bar with their chests puffed out, saying they can handle it no problem. Then, after half a pint, they’re napping in a corner booth, crying about that time in high school they were stood up at prom, while everyone else is chipping in to get an Uber to drive them home. Yeah, that’s THC-O.
“[One advocate] is likewise worried that adverse reactions to THC-O acetate could have larger repercussions for the legalization movement writ large. ‘My biggest fear,’ he said, ‘is... a satanic panic or whatever you want to call it,’” wrote Leafly.
“Overconsumption of traditional cannabis has never directly caused a death in humans. With a compound three times as potent as delta-9 THC, however, there’s a risk of consumers imbibing too much THC-O and suffering through some unpleasant effects. Of course, high-potency cannabis concentrates like dabbing oil, wax, and shatter have been legally sold for many years—so the risk of a bad trip with THC-O is all relative,” they continued.
In other words, THC-O is very safe, as are all hemp products, but you still have to respect it. All things in moderation, as the saying goes.

Alibi THCO Vape Cartridges in all four flavors gives you a powerful vaping experience that takes you to new heights.
As for the legality of it all, well, as usual, it falls into a grey area.
“Producers of THC-O acetate products say they’re protected under the farm bill passed by Congress in 2018, because the molecule was derived from a chain of custody that began with federally legal hemp plants. But even they seem unsure. As [one company] admits on the company’s own website, ‘That’s actually hard to say,’” writes Leafly.
“Some experts, however, believe the compound is not legal. They cite the 1986 Federal Analogue Act, which states that any substance analogous to a Schedule I drug—in this case, conventional THC—would itself qualify as a Schedule I drug. But that argument could be similarly used to argue against the legality of delta-8 THC, or perhaps even CBD. It all depends on where the line between “analogous” and “non-analogous” is drawn,” Leafly continued.
So, that’s THC-O. Now that you have the opportunity be sure to use it responsibly. Because THC-O takes you to a new level, so you’re going to want to dive right in. Being outside is always fun, as long as you’re safe, as is listening to some very chill music. Dancing, talking, laughing, and more are all on the menu. However, always remember to respect this new and novel cannabinoid. As long as you do, you can have lots of fun with it.
