THC-O is one of the hemp plants' many cannabinoids. Its structure is incredibly similar to Delta-9 THC, which is the primary psychoactive component in cannabis. However, THC-O doesn't have the same binding properties that Delta-9 THC does, creating different effects in the body.
THC-O is only mildly psychoactive. The cannabinoid has a higher therapeutic value than psychoactive value, making it incredibly appealing to those looking for relief and comfort. You’ll find THC-O in low amounts within both hemp and marijuana plants, but it’s best when extracted. Extracting THC-O allows consumers to better focus on and embrace the cannabinoid’s effects, as its natural levels are so low.
