The so-called “spiritual cannabinoid,” THC-O, has quickly become one of the most popular items in the cannabis marketplace. With a high up to triple the strength of the delta-9-THC found in abundance in marijuana, THC-O is becoming the “go-to” compound for experienced weed users looking for a different experience.
Recently, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that hemp-derived delta-8 products were legal as long as they met the rules of the 2018 Farm Bill. This decision was a huge breakthrough for the fledgling minor cannabinoid market since the ruling effectively made THC-O derived from hemp (with a maximum D9 content of 0.3% THC) federally legal.
It is great news for THC-O manufacturers who have created several products, including tinctures and vape liquids. However, THC-O gummies are threatening to steal the show and are becoming one of the most popular products on the marketplace. Let’s explore the reasons why in this article.
Marketing experts know that convenience drives e-commerce growth and is the backbone of the industry. Consumers are willing to pay extra for convenience, whether via online delivery or pre-packaged meals that you only need to put in the oven or microwave to cook.
THC-O gummies offer convenience in abundance. First and foremost, eating one is as easy as popping it in your mouth and chewing or sucking on it to savor the flavor. While many people feel as if they need to be in a certain mood to consume a marijuana brownie, for example, eating a gummy is something people do without even thinking about it.
Therefore, you can enjoy THC-O gummies at any time of the day or night. However, it is wise to avoid using the cannabinoid if you’re due to work that day or have an important task to complete. The THC-O high is strong, and there’s no guarantee that you’ll be in a fit state to do anything once the peak high takes hold.
Ideally, you’ll use the gummy during a day off or when it’s time to wind down for the day. THC-O can induce relaxation and may even help you get to sleep faster. At least, that’s what a growing number of anecdotal reports tell us.
We can file this one under the ‘convenience’ banner too! When you use a THC-O tincture or vape liquid, it isn’t easy to know precisely how much you’re using. With such a high level of intoxication, a few milligrams can make quite a difference!
In contrast, each THC-O gummy contains a pre-measured dose. Granted, the cannabinoid content can vary from one batch to the next. However, viewing the brand’s third-party lab reports gives you a good idea of what to expect.
For instance, like all of PureKana’s products, its 25mg THC-O gummies come with lab reports. The lab report for the brand’s Blueberry Lemonade flavored gummies shows that they contain almost 26mg of THC-O apiece.
Therefore, if you’re a novice, you know that just one-quarter of a gummy contains close to 6.5mg of THC-O. This amount is more than capable of producing a fairly potent intoxicating high, depending on your THC-O tolerance.
Easy, Long-Term Storage
In contrast to baked goods, which can become stale over time, candies have a long shelf life. As a result, you can store your THC-O gummies for several months without worrying about losing their potency or delicious taste.
Also, your gummies can handle heat fairly well, so they are less likely to melt and ruin the cannabinoids if you accidentally leave them in your car during a heatwave, for instance. THC-O gummies made with pectin rather than gelatin have a higher melting point. As a bonus, they are also suitable for vegans!
Final Thoughts on Why THC-O Gummies Are So Popular
The love affair with gummies as a means of consuming cannabinoids began many years ago and isn’t going away anytime soon. They are a quick, easy, and convenient way to consume THC-O or any other cannabinoid you enjoy.
If buying THC-O gummies, please ensure you begin with a small dose at first to gauge the effects. Remember, you probably only need a few mg to get the experience you crave. Also, remember that because you’re consuming the cannabinoid via an edible, it will take much longer to have an effect than other forms of consumption. However, your unique THC-O gummy experience should last several hours.
