Happy Time FACTS
What is 11-OH-THC?
Chances are, you’ve experienced the effects of 11-hydroxy-THC before, especially if you’ve indulged in some delicious edibles. When you munch on a D8 or D9 edible, it has to go through the digestive system first. That’s why edibles take a bit longer to kick in compared to vaping – because the THC gets digested when ingested. Once your body works its magic and breaks down the THC, it transforms D8 or D9 into the infamous 11-hydroxy-THC.
How Potent is 11-OH-THC?
It’s believed to be 2-3 times stronger than THC, packing a serious punch in the psychoactive department. When you consume 11-Hydroxy-THC orally, it needs to go through the process of digestion first, which means you might have to wait a bit longer for the effects to kick in, usually about 1-2 hours. But trust us, the wait is worth it for an experience that’s next-level potent and mind-bending!
Can You Vape 11-OH-THC?
While edibles can take some time to kick in but pack a potent punch, vaping 11-OH-THC aims to replicate that experience in a more natural way. Don’t worry, it’s not like11-Hydroxy-THC has stomach acid or anything wild, but rather, the same chemical present in THC is unlocked and made available in a convenient vape form.
How Long to Feel Effects from 11-OH-THC?
Like many cannabinoids, how long it takes the user to feel effects depends on various factors. The most significant factor in determining this is how it is consumed. Most users whose consumption method is inhalation or vaping report feeling its effects minutes after their first dose. The high from 11-OH-THC edibles can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 ½ hours to kick in, and it can be unpredictable how strong the effects will be.
What Does 11-OH-THC Feel Like?
While there are no long-term, definitive studies on the effects of 11-hydroxy-THC, users have reported experiencing a heavy and heady buzz, a mental and physical experience, intense euphoria, happiness and enjoyment, relaxation, and an overall intense experience. It’s important to note that individual experiences may vary, and these effects are provided for informational purposes only.
Is 11-OH-THC Detectable on a Drug Test?
Most standard drug tests look to detect specific metabolites in the body created when a person consumes THC. 11-OH-THC is one of those metabolites that you will be tested for. Therefore, it is detectable on a drug test.
Is 11-OH-THC Legal?
Just like other psychoactive, non-delta 9 cannabinoids found in hemp, such as delta 8 THC, hemp-derived delta 9 THC, delta 10 THC, THC-X, THC-P, THCV, and many others, 11-hydroxy THC is federally legal under the 2018 Farm Bill, as long as it contains no more than 0.3% delta 9 THC. However, it’s important to note that if a state has banned delta 8 THC, it may also prohibit 11-hydroxy THC. So always check the regulations in your state to ensure compliance.
What Makes 11-OH-THC Special?
The high experienced from 11-Hydroxy-Δ⁹-tetrahydrocannabinol is believed to be similar to that of delta 9 THC, but with increased potency. When consumed orally, 11-Hydroxy-THC can induce a dreamy, euphoric cerebral effect and a pronounced body high, giving a sensation of floating on a cloud. Unlike vaping or smoking cannabis, where 11-Hydroxy-THC levels are typically around 5 percent, orally consumed cannabis products can contain much higher levels, starting from 25 percent THC and increasing from there based on studies. Moreover, 11-Hydroxy-THC has been shown to more effectively cross the blood-brain barrier compared to Delta 8 or Delta 9 THC.
