The Benefits and Effects of Delta-8, HHC, and THCO

If you are an avid hemp industry-related news follower, then you perhaps know that some cannabinoids related to Cannabidiol (CBD) such as Delta-8, HHC, and THCO are trending right now.

In case you don’t know much about the three, we will be happy to look further into each, their respective effects, and the benefits to the body. 

What is Delta-8?

Delta-8, often abbreviated as D8, is a psychoactive chemical compound found in cannabis. Since Delta-8-Tetrahydrocannabinol is an isomer of THC (Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol), it produces somewhat similar effects to the regular THC.

Delta-8 THC effects

Some of the D8 users say that taking products rich in Delta-8 helps them stay profoundly relaxed, uplifted, and having their appetite boosted.

While we have mentioned above that Delta-8 THC produces similar effects as Delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol, you could have read that THC causes side effects such as paranoia and anxiety. An important point to note though, is that your source of D8 also plays a critical role in the affects you will eventually have.

Legit brands such as Aventus8 use legal hemp (with less than 0.3% THC) to extract D8 products. This explains why one of our products such as Bubba Kush Delta-8 flower takes away anxiety instead of causing it.

The benefits of Delta-8

Scientists believe that D8 harbors an array of neuroprotective, analgesic, anxiolytic, antiemetic, and orexigenic benefits.

Another key benefit with Delta-8 is its malleability. You can literally find delta-8 THC in nearly every form you can find with CBD. For instance, you can take D8 as an edible, flower, preroll, chocolate, or even as an oil supplement. Besides, if vaping is your thing, you can also acquire a D8 cartridge for yourself!

What is HHC?

Hexahydro cannabinol, long for HHC, is the most stable Tetrahydrocannabinol form. This hemp chemical compound is highly resistant to UV radiation and heat. While it occurs naturally in a hemp plant, the quantities are so trace that some companies may have to make it synthetically in laboratories.

The effects of HHC

HHC effects, just like D8, are more inclined towards the relaxing side as compared to stimulation.

What are the benefits of HHC?

Since Hexahydro cannabinol is highly resistant to heat and Ultraviolet radiation, one of its many benefits is that it has a longer shelf-life than the regular Delta-9 THC. As far as the potential health benefits reach, HHC is believed to help manage anxiety, pain, insomnia, and also nausea.

What is THCO?

Tetrahydrocannabinol-O-Acetate, also called THC-O-Acetate is a synthetic hemp derivative that is highly potent.

 By synthetic, we mean that it isn’t available as a raw chemical compound in hemp. Instead, THCO is synthesized under laboratory conditions.

The effects of THCO

THCO mostly harbors calming effects and enhances powerful headedness. As of the moment, there are no researched adverse side effects of Tetrahydrocannabinol-O-Acetate.

The benefits of THCO

THCO users often say that they require just a minimal dose of THC-O-Acetate for the effects to kick in. This is attributable to the better bioavailability of the compound, all thanks to the presence of the unique ‘O’ group.

 The Purple Haze THCO flower is one of the THCO-rich products. Thanks to its fast bioavailability, the users feel deep relaxation and achieve mental clarity in a short while after taking the flower. 

In Summary

Unlike the recent past where CBD and Delta-9 THC were the only valuable cannabinoids, other chemical compounds such as D8, HHC, and THCO have made great strides.

The critical factor to consider before buying any of these products is to ensure that they are extracted from legal hemp, there are 3rd-party lab results upon request, and that the brand is reputable.
