THCo – Acetate – Product Information
THCo is short for tetra cannabinoid-O-acetate. This is a synthetic cannabinoid considered to be the Acetate Ester form of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) derived from the hemp plant.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the main psychoactive cannabis extract from the marijuana or cannabis plant. It has gained popularity due to its potential psychoactive effects and the significant potential and interest in its medicinal utility. [R]
Similar to Delta 8 and Delta 9 THCs, which are distinctive and known to be extracted from the cannabis plant, THC-O-acetate does not occur naturally and can only be synthesized in a laboratory.

What is THCo-Acetate?
As mentioned above, Hemp is the source of the cannabinoid THC-O acetate, sometimes known as THC-O. It is a tetrahydrocannabinol derivative that can only be produced in a laboratory, hence it is referred to as hemp-derived TCH. Although it is more potent than conventional THC, it is swiftly gaining recognition for its potential appetite-stimulating, anti-anxiety, and anti-nausea qualities.
Interestingly, although THC-O may be unfamiliar to most everyday people, the U.S. military started researching its effects in 1949. According to the experiments, the chemical significantly worsened canine muscular coordination compared to traditional delta-9 THC. [R]
Is there a difference between Delta-8 THC and THCo-Acetate?
In the realm of cannabinoids, there exist two distinct compounds: Delta 8 THC and THCo-Acetate. However, it is worth noting that THCo is inherently unstable in its natural state, necessitating its combination with a denser distillate. Typically, this denser distillate is delta 8 THC, known for its viscosity.
Consequently, when purchasing a THCo product, it is highly probable that a significant amount of delta 8 THC will be present alongside THCo. Consequently, it could be argued that it is technically accurate to describe such products as a blend of Delta 8 THC and THCo-Acetate. However, it would be incorrect to refer to the active cannabinoid as “Delta o acetate.”
In summary, it is recommended to designate THCo products as THCo, supplemented with a delta 8 THC blend to enhance the entourage effect.
Limited research is available on THC-O, so any information about the medical benefits is still primarily anecdotal. The anecdotal evidence is promising, though.
The effects of THCo-Acetate were originally studied in 1949 by the US military as part of a broader experiment known as the Edgewood Arsenal Experiments. The military discovered that Delta O Acetate was prevalent and affected muscle coordination in dogs twice as much as commonly found in Delta 9 THC. [R]
This research has led to a review of the active principles of the cannabis plant. The results corroborated the above results by demonstrating that THC acetate may potentially be twice as potent, (making THC-O stronger) as the natural THC from cannabidiol. [R]
THCo-Acetate Potential Psychoactive Effects
Research, regulation, and statistical data surrounding the effects of THC-O are very rare and limited. However, researchers have concluded that THC-O is a compound that requires a process of metabolism in order to be activated. Once THC-O is metabolized, it could potentially be a highly bioavailable variation of Delta-9 THC, implying it could potentially be absorbed and circulated successfully. The bioavailability could potentially, as a result, increase the potency and the feelings of euphoria or ‘thc o high’. [R]
THCo and the Potential Side Effects?
The negative effects of THC-O have not thoroughly been investigated. However, preliminary animal studies show a potential gastrointestinal, behavioral, and respiratory disruption when intravenously administered. Further research is required regarding the effects and potential side effects on human research subjects. [R]
Is THCo-Acetate safe?
Mysteries around the safety of THC-O acetate are common because there hasn’t been much research done on it, and there hasn’t been any regulation based on actual evidence.
However, anecdotal evidence has found the potent THC-0 to be relatively safe and favorable.
Is THC0-Acetate legal?
THC-O falls in between 2 contrasting laws. It seems legal as it is derived from hemp, legal under the Farm Bill of 2018. However, it may be deemed illegal under the 1986 Federal Analogue Act, where any analogous (comparable) compound to a Schedule 1 compound also qualifies as Schedule 1. Pure Rawz sells THC-O for research purposes only.
What distinguishes THC O from Delta-8 THC?
As mentioned above, THC-O and Delta-8 THC differ primarily in two ways:
THC-O is significantly more potent than Delta-8 THC. According to some sources, THC-O is up to five times more potent than Delta-8.
While Delta-8 THC is a naturally occurring cannabinoid in cannabis, for THC-O to exist, THC-A or THC must be acetylated, often Delta-8 from hemp. Because Delta-8 naturally occurs in such small quantities, it must be manufactured in large quantities by extracting CBD from hemp and converting it.
In which forms are Delta THCo available?
The Delta 8 concentrate can be purchased in a variety of ways. Some of the THC O products online are being marketed as TCH edibles (THC O gummies), joints, TCH O vapes, dab rigs, tinctures, or topical agents.
