Amnesia Haze is a sativa strain known for its high potency and the inspiration it provokes, despite what the name may tell you. Bred from the crossing of many different sativa strains, terpenes from AH have been combined here with THCO to produce a vape pen that is the definition of a heavy-hitter. Stimulating and cerebral, users say this mash-up will leave you energized and reeling if consumed too much, so users not accustomed to this combo should exercise caution.
This vape pen from Dank Lite contains 1000mg of cannabinoids total and utilizes a 900mAh lithium-ion battery. It contains only THCO distillate and terpenes and is free of MCT and other carriers, artificial additions, and cutting agents. As a company, Dank Lite prides itself on having some of the best smokable hemp and hemp-derived products on the market and utilizes organic hemp cultivation practices and lab-tests their products for purity.
For those new to THCO, THCO is an analog of THC that is said to be much more powerful than other cannabinoids such as delta 8 or delta 9 THC and should be consumed slowly and safely. It is strongly recommended that when using for the first time, take only 1 puff and wait approximately 1-2 hours before consuming more to assess your tolerance level. This is because while THCO is much stronger than Delta 9, it also takes longer than Delta 9 to fully take effect.
What Is THC-O-Acetate?
THC-O-Acetate is one of many known cannabinoids. It is considered a chemical compound in its simplest form that has the ability to attach itself to the receptors in the Endocannabinoid system in the human body.
THC-O-Acetate is also known to be referred to as THC Acetate, THC-O, as well as ATHC. But it is most commonly referred to as THC-O or ATHC. It is important to not confuse ATHC with THCa. THCa is a tetrahydrocannabinolic acid, which is a parent molecule to THC.
The major difference between the ATHC and THCa is that the “A” in ATHC is for acetate and the “a” in THCa is for acid. THCa naturally occurs in raw cannabis and converts to THC through a process known as decarboxylation. ATHC is not a naturally occurring cannabinoid and can only be made in a laboratory setting.
To process THC-O all other beneficial compounds, terpenes and flavonoids are removed and an isolate with no flavor or aroma is the result. THC-O in this unnatural state is typically a brown liquid and is referred to as an “analog” of its original compound form, which is THC.
The major difference between THC and THC-O is the acetate molecule that THC lacks. The addition of this new molecule to the compound structure makes the THC molecule stronger.
THC-O is absorbed and filtered by the liver in the same way any other cannabinoid that goes into your body. However, THC-O molecules are much more potent than smoked, vaped, dabbed or orally consumed THC. So despite how the body filters the molecules, the portion that is able to travel beyond the brain barrier will provide a very strong experience.
If you do not have any experience with THC-O, it is recommended that you start with a very small dose and increase dosages slowly to test your comfort levels. The experience that users have often reported after consuming THC-O is akin to a hallucinogenic experience induced by psilocybin.
- If you are subject to routine drug screenings, do not consume THC-O.
- Each state has their own separate laws regarding hemp products. Please be aware of the laws within your state/province of residence.
- Psychotropic potency of THC-O will often vary. For this reason, please do not operate a vehicle after consuming THC-O products.
- Consult your doctor before use.
Take one or two draws at a time and wait 45 mins prior to using again. If using for the very first time, please take 1 puff and wait approximately 1-2 hours before using again.
