How to Enjoy Yourself With THC-O This Holiday Season

Nov 23, 2021

The holidays are almost upon us, and that means that so is the craziness of family, shopping, and most of all, stress. Since the proliferation of hemp-derived cannabinoids began picking up steam across the United States and the globe this past year, people everywhere have started to see products such as THC-O as a better alternative to stress relief. And as researchers discover more about the endocannabinoid system and how phytocannabinoids like THC-O interact with the human body to help it relax, the popularity and interest in THC-O have grown exponentially.

Unfortunately, in the U.S. and across the globe, marijuana is only legal in a few select places, which means for patients looking to use cannabis, obtaining some may not be so easy. But fear not, because this holiday season here at the CBD Mall, we not only have the next best thing, but we also have something better — all-natural hemp-derived THC-O made from a foundation of THC-O.

However, and this is perhaps the most important thing to understand about THC-O (and really all hemp cannabinoids), but whether or not you choose THC-O for the buzz or the benefits, you’re choosing an all-natural product. It’s pretty much the same as any other cannabinoid, no matter where it comes from. In other words, THC-O is quite similar to marijuana. Both hemp-derived THC-O and marijuana come from the Cannabis sativa plant and are pretty similar from a molecular standpoint.

That means that this holiday season, starting with Black Friday, you can enjoy THC-O like you would enjoy any other cannabinoid. And for most of you, you can enjoy it legally. What consumers will find in THC-O is a powerful and potent cannabinoid that will make the holiday season really rock:

  • THC-O is one of the most powerful cannabinoids on the planet
  • THC-O should be taken in moderation

The hemp plant may have varying levels of THC-O, which is why we synthesize more using a foundation of CBD. However, what is known about hemp-derived THC-O is that it works synergistically with your body to help produce the benefits that people are looking for when they seek out hemp. It does, however, also create a “buzz” or a high commonly associated with marijuana.

Enjoy a Powerful, Legal Buzz With THC-O This Holiday Season

This holiday, you can enjoy a hemp-derived cannabinoid that’s super powerful and federally legal. Currently, THC-O is legal for sale and purchase across the country, although several states have banned it. Because of the federal-state level differences, there may be some confusion where you live, which is understandable. If you live in a state where THC-O is banned, we recommend asking Santa for a new law that allows the purchase and sale of THC-O.

Of course, THC-O is much more popular in the United States than in Canada because Canada legalized marijuana in 2018. The country had already had medical cannabis laws in place for a number of years. But that just means more THC-O for us in the U.S. this holiday season!

In contrast, hemp-derived THC-O is legal for sale and purchase in all 50 states, as per a provision in the 2018 Farm Bill. Hence the reason hemp-derived THC-O is available in a variety of forms online and in stores across the country. However, you might live in a state where it is banned. Check your local state laws to see and ask Santa to place some under your tree this year (you never know!).

Did you know that certain localities in the United States have banned THC-O, as there is some confusion and debate over the law? To date, there have been no recorded arrests of anyone who has purchased THC-O products.

The THC-O Experience This Holiday Season

As we’ve mentioned a few times already, THC-O is one of the most powerful cannabinoids around, even more, potent than Delta-9 THC. It makes a great stocking stuffer (try Alibi THC-O vapes this holiday) or the perfect under the tree gift. As we said before, hemp-derived THC-O, because of its potency, will most likely cause users to become very high or “buzzed,” depending on their tolerance. Other, less common side effects associated with THC-O use include:

  • Increased appetite
  • Increased heart rate and blood pressure
  • Anxiety
  • Feelings of paranoia for some people
  • Drowsiness

Negative side-effect can be lessened by using THC-O in moderation. Hemp-derived THC-O is sometimes used for other reasons than just a buzz as well. People use it to relax, chill it, and even after a workout, among other reasons. “While there’s still a lot we don’t know about this substance, it’s clear the effects are much stronger than the THC you’re used to,” writes “THC-O is a prodrug, which means it doesn’t become active until after it’s metabolized by the liver. Once it’s metabolized, what’s left is essentially just delta 9 THC. So why would this compound be any stronger? There’s a lot of speculation around this, but the theory is that it comes down to bioavailability.

THC-O is also used to help people sleep and relax and can be used to help people with stress, anxiety, and PTSD, along with a number of other ailments.

So this holiday season, give yourself the gift of THC-O. The strong, powerful, and potent buzz will light up your tree and take you to all new places you never thought you could go.
