What Is THC-O?

THC-O is short for THC-O acetate (THC-O-A) and it is a lab altered form of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) because it has been acetylated – meaning an acetic acid molecule has been added to the structure of the THC compound. THC-O-Acetate is the acetate ester of THC and is both psychoactive and psychotropic.

The Molecular Structure Of THC-O-Acetate

The Organization That First Synthesized THC-O

THC-O was stumbled upon by the United States Army sometime between 1949 and 1975 under the watch of a department called the Edgewood Arsenal Experiments

We have not been able to find the any information on the name of the actual scientist who created THC-O, however, Colonel James S. Ketchum was in charge of this entire clinical research operation which was focused on psychochemical warfare.

Reasons Why You Might Consider Taking THC-O Edible Gummies

Besides its recreational value to cannabis edible enthusiasts wanting a new euphoric experience, THC-O was created mainly for research studies to examine the effects of delta 9 THC on the human body, as well as its potential therapeutic applications.

The compound has been successfully administered to test subjects through various routes, including inhalation and oral ingestion. THC-O Acetate shows promise for use in the treatments of the following:

  • pain
  • inflammation
  • nausea/vomiting
  • appetite stimulation

However, we must omit that the above should not be taken as facts because further research is needed to fully understand the efficacy and safety profile of THC-O before it can be acknowledged for use by the medical society.

Recently, it’s purpose seems to be more popular as a commercial product for recreational purposes as it has made it’s first-documented commercial appearance via research study in 2022.

How THC-O Gummies Are Made

THC-O-A can be made from a THC molecule, but for those interested in the legal manufacturing method, THC-O is made by altering a Cannabidiol (CBD) molecule extracted from hemp plants and converting Cannabidiol into Delta-8 THC.

Once this conversion is complete, the D8 THC compound is then combined with acetic anhydride (Ac₂O), a reagent widely and commonly used in organic synthesis. The combination of these two molecules, D8-THC and Ac₂O, produce THC-O-A.

The breakdown of the creation and synthesis of THC-O was first described in 1974 in the book Cannabis Alchemy: Art of Modern Hashmaking, view full online text here.

Once the THC-O extract is in the hand of the gummy manufacturer, depending on the formulation and the method, gummies are either infused, soaked, sprayed, or tossed with a concentrated THC-O extract.

The Laws & Legality of THC-O

Unlike Delta 8, which some states have made illegal, THC-O has not been recognized as a federally illegal substance. With that said, the laws often change and this information should only be used as a basis of information, not as a fact. It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to check with your local laws on the legalities of using THC-O Acetate before accidentally getting into any sort of legal concerns.

For all of our United Kingdom readers, currently THC-O acetate is a classified as a Class B Drug.

THC-O Safety, Warnings, & Concerns

According to two research studies, one published in July of 2022 and another study published in December of 2022, the danger of vaping THC-O acetate leads to ketene formation and has the potential to cause a EVALI Epidemic, respectively.

To be crystal clear, the danger with THC-O is only worrisome when the acetate ester of THC-O is introduced to high heat because it could produce a dangerous lung toxicant known as ketene.

The good news is, THC-O gummies, THC-O edibles, and THC-O oils and tinctures do not share this risk and there isn’t any documented risk to suggest that it is harmful when ingested.

Conclusion

In summary, THC-O Acetate is a promising compound that has recreational value and according to an interview with Dr. Ethan Russo, he cannot rule out that THC-O could potentially have medical applications one day, however, stay far away from vaping or smoking it.

Please consult with your doctor, healthcare provider, or Medical Marijuana Doctor to discuss any potential risks associated with the use of this compound, especially if you are on any medications to ensure there are now drug interactions.
