OpenLeaf CBD – Delta 8 VS THC-O

Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as delta-8 THC, is a psychoactive substance found in the Cannabis sativa plant, of which marijuana and hemp are two varieties. Delta-8 THC is one of over 100 cannabinoids produced naturally by the cannabis plant but is not found in significant amounts in the cannabis plant.

Compared with THC, delta-8 THC appears to provide similar levels of relaxation and pain relief. While it seems to cause slightly lower levels of euphoria, it also seems to produce fewer cognitive distortions such as an altered sense of time, short-term memory issues and difficulty concentrating.

THC-O is a new cannabinoid (derived from Hemp just like Delta 8) which carries psychoactive effects and euphoric feelings associated with the typical properties associated with cannabis use. It is rumored that THC-O is roughly 3 times more potent than regular THC.

Which one should you choose?

Delta 8 is the most popular of the two and many of our customers prefer to start off with Delta 8 and move up to THC-O. Delta 8 will provide the most euphoric experience of the two.

THC-O is more potent and provides a more spiritual experience. Users have stated that THC-O can create a feeling that lasts even after a full-night’s rest. THC-O stays in your system longer and creates a potent effect.

If you’re a first-time user of THC it is recommended, you start off with Delta 8. If you’re a veteran user, then you should try out THC-O to see if you like the effect.

Below is more information about THC-O


 With a potentially three times more potent cannabinoid, you might expect quite euphoric effects. In general, its psychoactive effects are beyond typical THC effects. Its nickname is the spiritual cannabinoid, as its psychedelic experience is sometimes compared to psilocybin. By taking THC-O, you may experience a new level of introspection, as some THC-O users said that it stimulates deep thought. However, some others describe it as a spiritual cannabinoid that enables deep therapeutic states. 


 The addition of acetate potentiates the THC-O effects. Several lab test reports indicate that it is a highly potent cannabinoid. So, it is recommended any use of this compound is taken with caution and prior preparation. When it comes to THC-O effects, it varies from person to person. Not everyone can experience the same effects from the same substance. You might be familiar with how cannabinoids interact with our body’s natural endocannabinoid system. Similar to other cannabinoids, THC-O stimulates the cannabinoid receptors in the brain but in a more robust way. THC-O might be a suitable alternative to THC oil that you use. However, it’s unique psychedelic-like nature encourages people to learn more about this relatively new cannabinoid. Once you consumed the highly potent cannabinoid, the metabolic process in the body makes it biologically active by de-acetylating the molecule.
