THC-O-Acetate: THC’s cannabinoid, 300% more powerful
Perhaps you have heard of THC-A Crystalline? This cannabis, with a THC level of 99.9%, was said to be the most potent in the world. It could have been assumed that no product could beat it.
In fact, there is a much more powerful molecule: THC-O-acetate. This cannabinoid is believed to be two to three times more effective. Some estimate that its impact is 300% greater than the THC produced naturally in current cannabis plants.
What is THC-O-acetate?
According to D. Gold’s Cannabis Alchemy, THC-O-acetate is a brown oil soluble in ether and ethanol.
Donald Cooper of the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) in the United States clarified that the administration first encountered this cannabinoid in 1978 in Jacksonville, Florida. The molecule was made from THC in the same way that heroin is made from morphine.
“In this case, a concentrated cannabis extract was obtained by extracting Soxhlet,” Cooper’s account read. “The extract was acetylated with acetic anhydride and, in the final step, the excess acetic anhydride was removed by distillation. “
Since this discovery, DEA labs have found no more samples of THC-O-acetate. So the government decided not to include it in its classification.

A similar case occurred in 1995 in the UK. A man has been arrested for synthesizing THC-O-acetate using D. Gold’s book.
What are the effects of THC-O-acetate?
Between 1949 and 1975, the US military, as part of the Edgewood Arsenal experiments, investigated THC-O-acetate as an incapacitating agent. After testing it on dogs, the researchers found that it affected muscle coordination twice as much as THC.
However, in humans, the effects would be much more psychedelic and spiritual than normal cannabis. In addition, a delay of about 30 minutes after consumption is necessary before feeling the effects.
Is THC-O-acetate legal?
In the US, it is difficult to say if the US federal law of 1986 applies to THC-O-acetate.
In Europe, the United Kingdom classified it, following the 1995 case, as a class A drug, that is, at the same level as the harder drugs.
That said, you probably won’t find one very easily. And we don’t recommend doing it at home, unless you have a real chemical lab.
