     There are so many products with similar names, sometimes it can be confusing to differentiate between them all. To better understand lets begin by identifying Delta-8 and Delta 9 THC, both cannabinoids from the Sativa plants family. They can be found in the marijuana plant as well as industrial hemp. All Delta 8 is derived from the industrial plant, while Delta 9 are mostly extracted from marijuana plant.

     We are most familiar with Urb Delta-9 THC, one of the more popular THC compounds. It is known for its psychoactive effects such as enhanced visual and auditory perceptions. Cannabis contains a large amount of Delta-9 THC, making it much easier (and cheaper) to extract from the plant. By contrast, Delta-8 is much more difficult to extract naturally. This means this cannabinoid can be synthesized in a lab using solvents. In fact, solvents are the safest and most natural method of making Urb Delta-8 THC from hemp. This method also ensures that the cannabinoid will be of the highest quality.

   So, what about THC-O? THC-O, or THC-O acetate, is a synthetic analog (or chemical twin) of THC. THC-O is, indeed, a cannabinoid, but is a synthetic cannabinoid, which is only manufactured safely with the help of modern cannabis technology. To activate THC-O, researchers concluded it is a "prodrug," meaning it must be metabolized. Once THC-O is metabolized, all that is left is a highly bioavailable variation of delta-9 THC, meaning it can be absorbed and circulated well by the body. Anecdotal evidence suggests that THC-O can be an effective therapeutic when used in place of an edible. tincture. When cannabis patients have the types of THC tolerances that make chronic pain management challenging, THC-O products might be a better choice than products with higher recreational doses.

    It's always important to do a bit a your own research and find out what product works best for you. Hopefully this information will help you find that perfect match.
