THC-O has gained a surplus of popularity and notoriety amongst the cannabis and CBD industry for its potency. Michael Starks’s work in Marijuana Potency from 1977 suggests that THC-O packs three times the punch of delta-9 THC, pushing the limits of the psychoactive effects to an experience similar to magical mushrooms. Now, the labs are in agreement, making THC-O five times as potent as delta-8.
Bringing THC-O to life requires a specialized lab that cannot have any human exposure, a certified lab chemist with a doctorate who has been through specific training. The training entails a thorough understanding of the process and the fragility of the chemicals at hand, so we’d recommend not to try using a YouTube video as a guide. Do not DIY.
