Hemp-derived ingredients have gained immense popularity, and chances are you have already tried one of the trending products, whether it’s CBD, Delta 8 THC, CBG, or HHC.
Getting started with the new compound raises many questions. One of the primary ones is ‘how much should I take?’ Therefore, you might already be familiar with dosing the aforementioned famous cannabinoids and probably have already established your ideal daily dosage for each. However, the hemp industry keeps growing, and as the interest in new cannabinoids is increasing, recently, a new cannabinoid emerged on the scene – THC-O.
Even though you may already have tried different cannabinoids, THC-O is entirely different from anything you have tried before. It also requires a different approach in dosing than any other hemp-derived compound. That’s because THC-O is not similar to any cannabinoids you have tried before and also because it can be considerably stronger for some users, than Delta 9 THC in marijuana and requires more caution in terms of dosing not to go overboard.
The famous types of THC-O products currently consist of gummies and vape carts, and because these two types offer different consumption methods, they also require a different approach in terms of dosing. The new hemp-derived compound even gained a nickname – the psychedelic cannabinoid, so it’s not surprising you want to find a safe amount to begin consuming THC-O. This article will guide you to determine the proper amount of the product to drive desired effects from THC-O.
What is THC-O?
It’s not been a long time since many consumers were asking the same question about Delta 8 THC, but because people want to explore more about legal hemp and its compounds, more THC variations have begun to appear on the market.
THC-O is a synthetic cannabinoid, a rising star on the hemp-derived market. Although lab-made, it’s an analog of THC with an almost identical chemical structure as the latter.
Unlike Delta 9 THC in marijuana, THC-O derives from the federally legal cannabis plant – hemp and undergoes a series of advanced extraction and production steps.
The process begins with extracting cannabidiol (CBD) from hemp, followed by converting it to Delta 8 THC and using organic solvent acetic anhydride to produce THC-O from Delta 8 THC molecules. The process results in three times more potent hemp-derived compound – THC-O, than the psychoactive Delta 9 THC.
In terms of its effects., THC-O produces similar outcomes as Delta 9 THC, only stronger, but the results you experience will depend on two factors: The product you choose and the amount you consume.
THC-O Potency VS. THC-O Dosage
Regardless of which product type you choose – THC-O vape cart or THC-O gummies, they will come in varying potencies, meaning they will differ in the amount of THC-O they contain. The potency is crucial for determining the amount of the product to consume.
For example, each gummy piece may feature 10mg of THC-O, and if your targeted dose is 20mg, you can safely consume two gummies. If each gummy features 20mg THC-O, consuming two in one sitting will be too much.
On the other hand, THC-O dosage is how much of the product you consume, whether it’s gummy or vape cart. So the dosage multiplied by the product’s potency is the consumed amount of THC-O.
Gummies vs. Vape Carts
One of the crucial factors to consider when determining how much of the product you should consume is the product type you choose. For example, gummies have much lower absorption rates because they first need to go to the digestive tract and liver and then to your bloodstream to deliver effects. In contrast, THC-O vape carts are much more bioavailable, as THC-O, through inhalation, makes a shortcut to the bloodstream; hence, less is lost on the way.
One more aspect to consider is the time it takes these two product types to provide results. Because THC-O gummies first need to travel to your digestive tract, their effects will be delayed and may take up to an hour, depending on your metabolism. That’s why it’s crucial not to consume more to boost the product’s effects until you wait for at least an hour for your body to absorb the compound. On the contrary, vape carts kick in much faster than gummies and might take effect anywhere between 15-30 minutes.
Recommended THC-O Doses For Beginners
When you first consume a new cannabinoid, you don’t know how it affects your body or how much you need to see the desired results. That’s why we always recommend starting with small doses, but with THC-O, we advise taking even more caution.
- The recommended dose for beginners (low tolerance) is between 3mg-10mg per use
- 2nd THC-O dosage tier (medium tolerance) is 10mg-25mg per consumption
- 3rd THC-O dosage tier (high tolerance) is anything between 25 to 50mg and above
As discussed above, how much of the product you should consume depends on its potency, and when consuming THC-O gummies, wait for at least an hour to start experiencing the results. As for the THC-O vape cart, we suggest taking a single puff and waiting 15-30 minutes before taking another one.
