Research on how the body processes THC-O is virtually non-existent, but since it is the acetate ester form of THC, it is highly likely that pharmacological tests will detect the metabolites of THC in the blood, urine, or hair of a THC-O user. The length of time that THC-O stays in the body is unknown, but it is reasonable to assume that it can be detected for at least as long as THC delta 9, possibly for weeks or months.
Will THC-O make you fail a drug test?The answer is an unequivocal yes. THC-O is a very potent form of THC that is broken down in the body in the same way as Delta-9 THC.
In urine samples, its metabolites can remain detectable for up to 30 months. If you have been using a THC-O pen and are suddenly faced with a random drug test, it is time to be concerned. This metabolite helps break down THC in the system, and its fat-soluble nature allows it to stay in the body for days or weeks after you last consumed THC. The effects of THC-O are very similar to those of delta 9, but because it binds more closely to the body's cannabinoid receptors than other forms of THC, it is more intoxicating than delta 8, delta 10 or HHC and even stronger than THC delta 9.Vaping carts and disposable vaporizers containing THC-O are sold with unflavored distillate or with added terpenes for flavor.
