Exotic Cannabinoid Month: THC-O and Delta 8
It’s November! My, how the year has flown. This month we’re celebrating Exotic Cannabinoids. We’re using the word exotic here to describe cannabinoids that are new, exciting, and not well known to the general public at the time of writing this blog. This month we’re introducing two Exotic Cannabinoids to our all star delectable gummy line up. Let us state right off the bat, that you must be careful while consuming these gummies. These are highly portioned hemp products and are for experienced users 21+. Be in a safe space when consuming these gummies, do not drive, do not operate machinery, honestly just chill out and have a good time. With that being said, we’re now shipping Mystery❓flavored 20mg THC-O gummies and 20mg Kiwi 🥝 Strawberry 🍓 Delta 8 gummies. THC-O is a cannabinoid that is made from Delta 8 hemp. It has been shown to be 3x as potent as its sister cannabinoid Delta 9. Delta 8 is kind of the opposite. It’s a more chill, older cousin of Delta 9. Its psychoactive effects are said to be slightly less than Delta 9. That being said, our gummies are portioned at 20mg for experienced users. So even though it is the “chiller” cannabinoid, there is a high portion in this gummy. Let’s take a closer look!
According to Wikipedia, Delta 8 THC is moderately less potent than Delta 9 THC. This essentially means that it has properties similar to those of Delta 9-THC, although to a lesser degree per milligram of material consumed. Delta 9 is the most commonly used cannabinoid when it comes to THC products. Delta 8 is a sibling to Delta 9. They have a very similar genetic makeup and are both hemp derived. As mentioned above, it has been said that Delta 8 is a more chill, not as psychoactive high as Delta 9. One of our employees actually prefers Delta 8 over Delta 9. “I like it because it’s not as much of a blast in the face as Delta 9. When I took a small bite of one of our gummies, it was the perfect chill out vibe I was looking for,” said one of our employees. Because the legislature is behind on certain cannabinoids, Delta 8 THC is not legal in all states. Delta 8 cannot be sold in Alaska, Idaho, Colorado, North Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, South Carolina, New York, Rhode Island, Delaware, or Vermont and may be regulated differently in other states.

According to wweek.com, … anyone with even a passing interest in therapeutic, alternative, hemp-derived or cutting-edge cannabinoids should know about THC-O, a cosmically powerful, borderline psychedelic derivative of cannabis that can be up to 300% more potent than even the most astronomical THC. They go on, THC-O acetate, or THC-O, is a synthetic analog (or chemical twin) of THC. The effects of THC-O are very similar to delta 9, but a lot more potent. We’ve also heard that the cannabinoid causes users to feel more sleepy after taking one than taking say a Delta 9 gummy. I love these gummies because they get me high, then I go to bed. It’s perfect and I take them a few hours before bed. One THC-O user recently told us. Our yummy THC-O gummies are a mystery flavor adn in just a few days we’ll be running a promotion for you to guess the mystery flavor! Let us know your thoughts once you’ve tried them.
Some people want to stick the the cannabinoids they know like THC of CBD and we respect that. However, those cannabinoids might not offer all the effects a user may be looking for when it comes to cannabinoids. Why would someone take Delta 8 over a Delta 9 product? Well it depend on the user. Some customers have said that they like to use Delta 8 because they get too paranoid on Delta 9. Others prefer Delta 9 over Delta 8 and that’s okay. There’s now wrong answers here. Delta 8 can be said to be not as intense and that attracts some users. Our gummies are still packed with the cannabinoid so if you’re looking for a taste make sure to just have a bite. When it come sot THC-O some customers like to be higher and that’s also totally okay. Some customers prefer more intense psychoactive experiences. One thing to note as well is that each person’s metabolism will effect how this gummy reacts to their system. For example, someone with a high metabolism may feel the effects of THC-O within 15 minutes of taking the gummy. Others with slower metabolisms may take up to an hour to feel any effects. Again, make sure you’re in a safe and controlled space while consuming these gummies.
