What is THCO Distillate?
THCO distillate is a purified THCO extract used in various products, including vape cartridges and THCO flower. Because THCO does not occur naturally in the hemp or cannabis plants, it must be synthesized and concentrated in order to create a THCO product.
What Is a Distillate?
In the world of hemp and cannabis, a distillate is a concentrated form of cannabinoid created through a distillation process. Distillation involves the separation and purification of a certain compound in liquid form through evaporation and condensation.
The process takes advantage of the fact that different chemical compounds have different boiling points. The liquid is heated up to the boiling point of the unwanted compound, and it evaporates out of the distillate, eventually resulting in a purified form of the desired compound.
What Is THCO?
You’ve certainly heard of THC, and you’ve most likely heard of Delta 8 THC, but you may not be familiar with THCO — it’s not talked about quite as much as those other compounds. Once you’ve heard about it, though, you’re likely to be highly interested in a firsthand experience with it.
THCO, or tetrahydrocannabinol-o-acetate, is a synthetic cannabinoid compound extracted from the hemp plant, which has seen a recent growth in popularity among cannabinoid enthusiasts.
The popularity surge can be attributed to the fact that it may be the strongest psychoactive cannabinoid known to man. THCO is believed to be three times stronger than Delta 9 THC.
