THCO is the main psychoactive compound in cannabis, while Delta 8 is a synthetic analog of THC. Both have similar properties, such as being antiemetics and having the ability to stimulate appetite. However, Delta 8 is more powerful than THCO. For most, Delta 8 seems less potent than THC-O, but it will depend on the dose consumed.
Many newcomers prefer Delta 8 because of its mild euphoric feelings. Delta 8 produces a sense of relaxation and has a sedative effect. The effects of Delta 8 tend to wear off faster than those of THC-O. The Delta 8 has a greater appeal to the masses, since it produces a mild effect that doesn't last for hours on end.
Potency is the main area in which Delta-8 and THC-O differ. In fact, Delta-8 is thought to be about half as potent as traditional THC, while THC-O is approximately three times as potent. That's a huge difference and affects dosage thresholds and the overall effects of both cannabinoids. The main difference between THC-O and Delta 9-THC is federal and state legality.
THC-O is fully federal legal and legal in 41 states, while Delta 9-THC is federally illegal and illegal in most states. Both THC-O and Delta 9-THC produce euphoric psychoactive effects in consumers and bring a wide variety of medical and recreational benefits. The difference between CBD (cannabidiol) and THC-O (tetrahydrocannabinol) is that CBD does not have the psychoactive effects that THC-O has. THC-O is very potent and is a good choice for experienced cannabis users, but you should be careful when developing a THC-O dosing plan.
In many cases, THC-O products also contain Delta-8 because Delta-8 is a natural part of the THC-O manufacturing process. THC-O is one of the newest cannabinoids to date, so there are no definitive studies on the long-term effects of THC-O. You may also be able to find some of the same dosage styles in THC-O formulas, but more commonly, you'll find THC-O in vaporizer or edible form.
