THC-O is making its way through the cannabis scene, and Delta Extrax is the latest to take a crack at it.
Delta Extrax is a company that produces many cannabis products, mainly delta-8-THC. Unlike regular THC also known as delta-9-THC, delta-8-THC produces a less intense, and less psychoactive high.
Delta Extrax wants to provide high-quality products at fair prices so customers can maintain a healthy lifestyle.
This week I got to try out a new type of cannabis that I had never tried before — THC-O Acetate (THC-O). THC-O came in an isolate, meaning it’s devoid of other plant compounds such as terpenes and flavonoids. However, the company added additional compounds to the isolate for a balanced high.
According to Delta Extrax, THC-O’s high tends to be more potent than a THC high, with some consumers reporting a more spiritual effect, similar to psychedelics. According to the journal Nature, THC-O is thought to be about 30 times stronger than regular THC.
Because THC-O can be so potent, Delta Extrax has added delta-8-THC to it’s batches of THC-O to make the highs more tolerable and less intense.
The products this writer tested were the THC-O Disposable Vapes from the company’s The Omega Collection. There were two kinds, the Berry Gelato Premium THC-O Disposable, and the GSC Premium Disposable. They both come in a long black disposable cartridge that is not refillable. They are rechargeable, but they shouldn’t need to be recharged before they are used up.
According to the company’s website, these products are described as “exotic cannabinoids that promote relaxation.”
As someone who suffers from a bit of anxiety both when smoking and when not, I was looking forward to trying these.
The GSC Premium disposable vape is an indica-dominant hybrid strain. The ingredients include delta-8-THC distillate, THC-O distillate, and terpenes. Lab tests can be found here.
The flavor profile is labeled as including hints of citrus, mint, and sweet cherry. When actually testing the product, I would say this is an accurate description. The most noticeable flavor for me was the citrus. But overall, it was a great mixture of flavors that blended together well.
Because it is indica-dominant, it is considered more of a nighttime strain.
The Berry Gelato Premium disposable vape is another indica-dominant hybrid. It’s a cross between Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies and Blueberry. It’s ingredients include Delta-8-THC distillate, THC-O distillate, and terpenes. Third-party lab tests are located here.
The flavor profile includes hints of berries, citrus, and some spices. For me, the berries were the most noticeable flavor. It had a rich sweet taste.
This one is labeled as pretty mellow, and also considered a nighttime strain.
I found both of these to be extremely pleasant vaping experiences.
These disposables were very easy to use. There’s no button, and I barely had to inhale to get vapor. I personally found that one to three puffs had me feeling a full body calm, kind of like CBD.
But after a few more puffs, I really started feeling the effects. I found the highs to be very pleasant. For me there wasn’t a huge difference between the two products, I found the highs to be pretty similar.
There was no anxiety for me, which was really nice compared to other products I’ve tried before. But everybody reacts differently, so my experience will not be the same as everyone else’s. Consumers should always test their own limits when trying cannabis products.
When trying these with friends, we all felt pretty happy/giggly. I often would find myself unable to stop smiling. These are great products to use with friends, or to just unwind after a long day.
I also used these a bit to help me focus on certain tasks. However, I wouldn’t use the same amount that I’d use with friends, just a few puffs. I found it helped me concentrate more.
The effects kicked in pretty fast, within 10 minutes I was feeling the full extent.
Overall I really enjoyed my first time with THC-O. I loved how easy it was to consume the product. The high was great, and I loved how it was a totally non-anxious experience. I also liked how taking a small amount doesn’t get you high, just very relaxed. It’s almost like two products in one.
