The short answer is yes, the effects of THC-O are stronger than all current THC extracts. THC-O is significantly more potent not only than delta-8 and -10, but also than regular THC. Some consumers have reported greater spiritual euphoria, with strong effects that can even border on hallucinogens. Like any drug, the effects and tolerance will vary from person to person.
The fundamental difference here is that THC-O is derived from hemp, not marijuana, making it much more accessible. In addition, THC-O is thought to be approximately three times more potent than traditional THC, so you can expect a much stronger high. THC-O is stronger than delta-8 and delta-9 THC. The delta-8 is milder and less likely to cause anxiety and paranoia.
Users describe the effects as mild, relaxing, or stimulating (depending on the strain of the product). In addition, because the DEA now considers THC-O to be a federally illegal Schedule 1 drug, it is illegal to buy or sell it in any form, although we are not aware that any arrests have been made so far. Although THC-O is known to be energizing and stimulating, some products can combine it with indica-predominant terpenes or even delta-8 to provide more relaxing and relaxing effects. THC-O is created by chemically converting CBD into delta 9 THC or delta 8 THC and then converting those cannabinoids into their acetate ester form, which is called THC-O for short.
This is one of several reasons why you should only buy THC-O if you know it's coming from a trustworthy source. THC-O and Delta-8-THC are often grouped under the same laws for hemp-derived THC, so you can read more about Delta-8 laws by state to learn about THC-O laws in your state. Experts often call it THC-O acetate (or ATHC or THC-OA), but almost everyone has abbreviated it as THC-O.
