With a potency sometimes as high as 99.9% you would be sensible in believing that THC crystals are the strongest cannabinoids available on the market. I mean, for Marijuana to be that pure, that’s pretty good, right?
Well as it turns out, there is a strain which packs a greater punch, and it’s called THC-O Acetate.
During the 1950s, the U.S military conducted an experiment in an attempt to understand how they could better incapacitate their enemies. Using dogs as test subjects, increased level of docile behavior was observed after the canines were administered with THC-O Acetate. When compared to influences of regular THC, it was found that THC-O Acetate was 2 to 3 times more effective at inducing muscle impairments in these animals.
So, if you were asking yourself, can weed get that much more potent? The answer is definitely yes.
Being 3 times more powerful than THC, it’s not surprising that THC-O Acetate will keep your head high in the clouds of your mind. With major psychedelic and spiritual effects, users should brace themselves for some serious introspection. Just remember to sit somewhere comfy.
If you don’t experience the instant high you normally feel after taking regular Cannabis, have no fear. There is often a 30-minute delay before THC-O Acetate kicks in, at which point you should find yourself well and truly immobilized. The reason for the delay is because it takes time for the body to metabolize the enzymes in THC-O Acetate. Much like edible highs, the lag-time before the drug kicks in is simply the period when the body is ingesting the cannabinoids, so remember to stay sensible with consumption.
How It’s Made
THC-O Acetate can’t just simply be grown in a backyard shed. To make this strain requires a chemistry set and ideally, a highly qualified chemist.
Creating THC-O Acetate is similar to the process of turning morphine into heroin. First THCA (Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid) needs to be heated.
Two dangerous chemicals, acetic anhydride and sulfuric acid, are normally used to synthesize with THCA and convert this into THC-O Acetate. To reiterate, this is an extremely dangerous process, as these chemicals are highly corrosive, and also flammable. Only an advanced chemist would likely have the ability and the equipment, to create high-quality THC-O Acetate consistently.
Will THC-O Acetate Become Available In The Ever-Expanding Cannabis Marketplace?
Due to its high level of potency, this drug is currently banned at the federal level in the USA.
Although it’s likely to be too powerful for most recreational users, some individuals may actually prefer THC O Acetate. Tolerances to cannabinoids vary, and many people may need to take more potent strains in order to receive the desired benefits.
But Is THC-O Acetate Maybe Just A Little Bit Too Strong?
Fortunately, it has long been proven that overdosing on Cannabis is incredibly difficult, although users can definitely still take way too much. Ultimately it is down to individuals to know what constitutes as sensible weed consumption for themselves. But make no mistake, this strain was originally produced because of its potential ability to paralyze enemy forces. In other words, if you somehow end up taking THC-O Acetate, just be ready to become paralyzed yourself!
As it stands this strain can’t be found on dispensary shelves anywhere. But with rapid advancements in the progression of the Cannabis industry, it’s not impossible that THC-O Acetate may one day become available at a dispensary near you.
