THC-O, or THC-O acetate, is currently legal in 38 states in the United States. As a hemp derivative, it is perfectly legal, except when specifically prohibited. The United States Postal Service (USPS) has clarified that hemp products, such as Delta 8-THC, can be shipped safely and legally within the United States. Many state laws do not address THC-O directly, but may refer to hemp-derived THC or THC analogs as a type of product.
Its effects are similar to those of delta 9, but because it binds more closely to the body's cannabinoid receptors than other forms of THC, THC-O is more intoxicating than delta 8, delta 10 or HHC and is even stronger than delta 9 THC. The legality of THC-O varies from state to state, so it is important to check the laws in your area before purchasing or shipping any products containing this compound. Additionally, it is important to note that while USPS has clarified that hemp products can be shipped legally within the United States, other carriers may have different regulations. For those looking to purchase or ship THC-O products, it is important to understand the legal implications and regulations in your area.
By doing so, you can ensure that you are following the law and staying safe.
