Brand spankin’ new THC-O distillate from your friends at Dr.Ganja! Containing 28g of hemp-derived distillate, this high-quality concentrate is one of the best THC-O products you’ll find! While THC-O distillates and oils are usually dabbed or vaped they are versatile in their use as they can also be ingested in various ways. Please note that while inhaling THC-O commonly produces effects that are 3x or 4x stronger than delta 8 or delta 9 THC, ingesting THC-O typically results in effects that are similar in strength to delta 8 or delta 9.
As should be expected now when associated with the Dr.Ganja name, this THC-O distillate has been thoroughly third-party tested for safety, purity, and potency and all COA’s are visible here on the product site.
For new users, please use caution as the dominant constituent in this distillate, THC-O, also known as THC-O Acetate, is an analogue of THC that is said to be much more powerful than other cannabinoids and thus should be consumed slowly and safely. It is recommended that when using for the first time, if inhaling take only 1 puff and wait approximately 1-2 hours before consuming more to assess your tolerance level as THCO takes longer to reach peak effects than other cannabinoids. If ingesting, please wait 2-3 hours after consumption to determine strength and tolerance level.

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 as 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.
