THCO is one of the most popular cannabinoids being sold today due to its federally legal status and potency. It is known for producing psychoactive effects that are considered approximately three-times the strength of standard THC while still being federally legal. Many users that enjoy it report feelings of relaxation and a physical and mental high that, though may be intense, is still enjoyable. In this article, we’ll be discussing both how to consume THCO as well as how to have the best possible experience.
How to Consume THCO
Due to its rising popularity and availability in the United States, THCO is offered in a number of different mediums just like more traditional cannabinoids such as Delta 8 or HHC. These mediums include:
These are vapes that contain a limited amount of THCO and are meant for relatively short-term usage. Sometimes you will see an amount of “puffs” that a disposable vape holds. This refers to how many pulls of the vape you can take before exhausting the supply that’s inside. Once they are empty, you can dispose of the entire vape at once because they are not refillable or reusable.
While they provide a similar experience, vape carts typically last longer than disposable vapes and require an external battery to operate. Once they are empty, the vape can be disposed of but the battery can be reused for your next THCO cartridge.
Gummies are among the most popular forms of edibles available today. They often mimic popular candies such as gummy bears and offer a sweet taste. As with any other form of edible, gummies typically take around an hour or more until you feel their effects. It is recommended that you start with a smaller dose and wait to see how it affects you before taking more.
Dabs are made of concentrated butane hash oil and offer the highest concentration of any cannabinoid product available. They require a dab “rig” and must be heated with a torch in order to smoke. Because of their high concentration, they produce a more intense psychoactive experience than smoking cannabinoid flower.
Tinctures are a thick, liquid-like substance that is unlike edibles or any smokable substance. To experience their effect, tinctures are meant to be held under the tongue for 30-60 seconds before being swallowed.
THCO may also be combined with other cannabinoids, often with milder ones like HHC or Delta 8, for a more balanced vibe.
What to expect when you take THCO
Due to the intense potency that THCO offers, it may be best to start with smaller amounts than you would with other cannabinoids. As you become more comfortable with its psychoactive properties, you may decide to increase the amount that you consume over time. Though we can’t recommend any exact dose, you could consult with your doctor, especially if you have any medical concerns related to blood pressure, ocular pressure, or drowsiness.
Because THCO is far more potent than traditional THC, we also recommend that you do not perform any physical labor tasks, operate heavy machinery, or drive while enjoying it. Instead, wait until the effects have subsided before engaging in any of these activities.
The typical duration for THCO is about 4-6 hours depending on how much is consumed in a single session. This is usually a few hours longer than the duration of effects felt by standard THC.
THCO Side Effects
Some reported side effects of THCO include red eyes, dry mouth, and an increased appetite. These are all standard side effects that you are just as likely to experience with many other cannabinoid products. Using over-the-counter eye drops as directed, staying hydrated, and choosing a healthy snack can all help alleviate any of these side effects if you experience them.
THCO may also produce a slowed reaction time. This is a major reason why it is not recommended that you perform any strenuous physical activity, operate machinery, or drive while using THCO. Instead, plan to enjoy it on days and times where you do not have any of these types of activities planned.
