What Is Delta-9o?

Delta-9o, better known as Delta-9 THC-O acetate, is one of the newest hemp-derived cannabinoids to hit the shelves at your local smoke shop. It's comparable to delta-9 thc already found in many stores, but the difference is that it’s treated with an acetate process that increases its effects and hits you much faster.

Delta 9o isn’t meant to be confused with THC-O, though. D9o is made from hemp-derived delta-9 THC, while THC-O is made from delta-8. But since delta-9 THC isn’t legal in every state, the acetate process makes for a product that can be sold in many states that don’t have legal cannabis yet.

What are some of D9o's Effects?

Delta-9o is in many ways the same as regular THC. It comes with a potent cerebral effect that causes you to feel high and euphoric. It also comes with a few other physical effects, like appetite stimulation, relaxation, and relief from aches and pains.

The major difference between d9o and regular cannabis is the speed at which it hits you, Delta-9o has a slightly different molecular structure that binds more effectively to the endocannabinoid system and may make you feel marginally higher than regular THC. However, it also appears easier for your body to metabolize, meaning it usually kicks in faster.

Ultimately, delta-9o tends to kick in a little bit faster and stronger and may last longer before fading away. You’ll want to keep that in mind when you try it— always start with a low dose to rule out any possible anxiety while using d9o. Further, take care to keep yourself hydrated.

Just keep in mind that delta-9 THC-O acetate is still pretty much unknown in the scientific community. Further research is still needed to determine the long-term safety and efficacy of d9o.

Delta-9 THC-O vs. THC-O

Since d9o has THC-o in its name, it’s easy to get the two mixed up. However, they’re two totally different things, and the only real similarity is that they’re both made by adding acetate to a starting cannabinoid.

THC-O is made by adding acetate to delta-8 THC. D9o is made by adding acetate to delta-9 THC. The difference is in the starting cannabinoid. That being said since the starting cannabinoids are different, they both offer a different molecular structure and, therefore, different effects.

THC-O is thought to be significantly more potent than regular THC. On the other hand, Delta-9 THC-O (d9o) isn’t stronger, but it is easier to absorb than regular THC.
