THC-O is known to produce a euphoric high that is comparable to delta-9, but with added hallucinogenic effects. These effects can include visual distortions, auditory hallucinations, and heightened emotions. The intensity of the experience is largely dependent on the dose taken. While it is difficult to compare the effects of THC-O to other forms of THC such as delta 8, delta 10, or HHC, it is generally accepted that THC-O produces a more intense high than the others.
Research on this topic is still in its early stages, but it appears that THC-O has a higher bioavailability than other forms of THC. This means that it is easier for the body to absorb and use THC-O. Some users have reported psychedelic experiences, mild hallucinations, and images when using THC-O acetate, which is why it is sometimes referred to as a psychedelic cannabinoid. It has also been said to produce deeper levels of introspection than standard THC and evoke spiritual sensations.
The medicinal benefits of THC are well known and THC-O does not differ in this regard. However, it does provide a more intense recreational experience than other forms of THC. At very high doses, this compound may be disabling and users have reported feeling lethargic and unable to move or communicate effectively.
