THCO gummies will definitely get you high, although the potency affects everyone differently. As mentioned, there is not much information about THC-O acetate, including THCO gummies or vapes, but based on its chemical structure THCO is stronger than Delta 9.

Since THCO will get you high and a feeling of euphoria, the ability to remain legal is because its a prodrug. This means THCO gummies need to go through the metabolism, converting it to basically delta-9 THC.

As it’s a prodrug and inactive until conversion, it remains legal in most places although research daily as its subject to change.

How is THC-O Made?

THC-O is synthesized in a lab from hemp, which actually Delta 8 THC can be used to synthesize THCO gummies. The process is complex on paper but involves altering the molecular structure of delta-9 THC and converting it using solvents to increase potency, separating it from the chemical replica chemical structure of delta-9 THC.

Never attempt to make any type of extract for THCO gummies or Delta 8, Delta 9 or other cannabinoids. Hemp extraction is done by professionals in a safe and controlled environment.

Expect THCO gummies to be more potent than Delta 9 gummies.

THCO gummies contain psychedelic properties, as well as relaxing but uplifting and energetic body euphoria. All cannabinoids affect individuals differently, but based on chemical structure and users; THCO gummies are stronger than Delta 8 gummies so be prepared for heavier effects.
