This Grape Ape Delta 8 and THCO distillate has been crafted from legal hemp and contains strain-specific terpenes inspired from the lazy indica sensation! If you’re looking for a relaxing nightcap or just a euphoric boost to your evening, Grape Ape has got you covered. With a hint of earthiness and dark juicy fruit flavor, Grape Ape has been said to be the perfect relaxing indica to tuck you in at night.
This high-quality concentrate comes in at 14g total and contains a blend of terpenes and relaxing Delta 8 THC as well as the more potent THCO. Incredibly versatile, it can be consumed however you please whether that be sublingually, vaped, dabbed, or as an additive in food and drinks and comes from our very own in-house brand, Rawbar! Please note that due to the thick nature of the distillate it is typically best to warm it up so that it becomes less viscous and easier to handle. This can easily be accomplished by something as simple as a warm water bath, blow dryer, or if you have one on hand, a hot plate. Additionally, if flavor is what you’re seeking, keeping temperatures on the low end (when dabbing or vaping) will ensure you’re getting all the taste this concentrate has to offer.
For those new to Delta 8 or THCO, delta 8 THC is considered the smoother and milder cousin of delta 9 THC, the cannabinoid commonly found in cannabis. While still providing a similar euphoric stone as D9 although not as strong, it has fewer of the negative drawbacks associated with it such as paranoia or anxiety. Also in this blend is THCO, a cannabinoid whose potency far exceeds traditional delta 9 THC and in very high quantities, has been rumored to be psychedelic. Thus, this concentrated blend balances itself very well with the more calming delta 8 mixed with the very euphoric THCO! If you haven’t yet tried a delta 8 and a THCO blend before you won’t be disappointed, but be warned a little goes a long way!

What is Delta 8 THC?
Cannabinoids are chemical compounds secreted from cannabis plants as resin. They have the ability to interact with our body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Delta 8 THC is a cannabinoid that occurs in much smaller concentrations than most other cannabinoids.
Delta 8 is an isomer that forms as Delta-9 THC ages and oxidizes. This process increases the stability of the Δ8 molecular structure so that it does not degrade as easily and lasts much longer over time.
Delta-8 THC and Delta 9-THC contain similarities in their molecular structure. Both contain double bonds, but D8 contains the bond on the 8th carbon chain and not on the 9th. For that reason, D8 and D9 THC react similarly within the Endocannabinoid receptors in the body as a result of their similar presentation of structure and properties.
D8 requires an intricate process of extraction, isolation, conversion, and refinement. With Δ8 there are benefits and effects to serve both medicinal and recreational consumers. Because D8 occurs in smaller concentrations, it’s common to see it sold in the form of distillates or edibles.
The compound Δ8 legally derives from hemp and contains less than 0.3% Δ9-THC in accordance with the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 (also known as the 2018 Farm Bill). Within the Bill, it states that all derivatives, isomers, and cannabinoids in hemp are federally legal provided that all final products contain less than 0.3% D9 THC.
- If you are subject to routine drug screenings, do not consume Δ8-THC.
- Each state has its own separate laws regarding hemp products. Please be aware of the laws within your state/province of residence.
- Psychotropic potency of Delta 8 THC will often vary. For this reason, please do not operate a vehicle after consuming Δ8 products.
- Consult your doctor before use.
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.
