Understanding The Differences & Similarities of THCV, THC-O, HHC, Delta 10 THC, & Delta 8 THC

Are you old enough to remember when THC referred to DELTA 9 THC, the dominant psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis/marijuana, that makes you high?


Fast forward to today!


Things have changed for the meaning of THC!


Through current advanced technology, cannabis researchers have discovered a previously unknown spectrum of THC-based compounds in hemp. This has created both interest and demand by CBD and hemp- derived product users for these other THC–based compounds.


Keep reading to have an understanding of the differences and similarities of THCv, THC-O, HHC, Delta 10 THC and Delta 8 THC so you can choose the best hemp derived THC products for you!


Strength Of Psychoactivity & Effects In THCv, THC-O, HHC, Delta 10 & Delta 8 THC


When referring to the psychoactive strength of the various THC compounds, the standard of comparison is with Delta 9-THC.


The psychoactive effects of all THC cannabinoids are produced by their interactivity with CB1 cannabinoid receptors located in the nervous system and the brain, which is what produces the intoxicating effect.


As a general rule of thumb, anecdotal evidence of users report the following about these other THC-based compounds:

THCv (Tetrahydrocannabivarin) is unique because it does not have psychoactive properties at low doses. However, once the dosage reaches a higher dosage threshold users experience psychoactive effects. Even at lower doses THCv has a stimulating and uplifting effect.


THCv also has wellness benefits, although research is still relatively scant, that includes weight loss support, appetite control and possible blood sugar and insulin support.


What determines a higher dosage of THCv is dependent on the user, as well as quality and potency of the THCv product and method of delivery!


Premium THCv products, like those crafted by 3 Tall Pines Farm of Wisconsin, have a combination of other cannabinoids like Delta 8 THC, CBG, CBD and other minor cannabinoids that offer a full spectrum of benefits and effects. 

THC-O (Tetrahydrocannabinol Acetate) is a manufactured analog of THC. This means it is a synthetic cannabinoid. It has become very popular because of its potency, which is at least three times stronger than delta 9 THC.


THC-O is created from hemp with less than 0.3% THC by extracting the CBD from the hemp, then converting it to delta 8 THC to which the organic solvent acetic anhydride is used to make THC-O. 


It is structurally almost identical to delta 9 THC. However, it produces a much stronger ‘high’ than delta 9 THC in marijuana.


3 Tall Pines has a collection of THC-O products that include THCO Signature Gummies, THC-O TabEASE edibles, and THC-O Smack Pack.


Start low and slow with THC-O to find the best dosage for you! Remember, it is potent!

HHC (Hexahydrocannabinol) is synthesized from extracting delta 9 THC from the hemp plant and using the organic compound, hydrogen and a heavy metal catalyst to synthesize HHC.


Although it requires a lab process to produce a sufficient amount of HHC for use, it is not a synthetic cannabinoid. HHC naturally occurs in very small amounts in the hemp plant.


HHC is similar in effects and benefits to delta 9 THC, is federally legal because it is hemp derived, and has stronger psychoactivity than delta 8 THC, yet is less psychoactive than THC-O.


3 Tall Pines has a collection of HHC products that includes HHC Signature Gummies, HHC 3 Pack Pre-Rolls and HHC TabEASE 500mg 25 pack. Experience the effects of HHC with your favorite delivery method!


Delta 10 THC (Delta 10 Tetrahydrocannabinol) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid found in very low concentrations at the plant’s early stages. 


Delta 10 THC has a similar chemical structure to delta 9 THC; however there is a slight difference in the carbon chain that makes it less psychoactive.


Delta 10 THC products have energizing, creativity promoting and mild psychoactive effects.


Delta 10 is popular for getting things done and having fun.


3 Tall Pines has a full collection of Delta 10 products that include Delta 10 Pre-Rolls, Delta 10 Disposable Vapes and Delta 10 TabEASE edibles crafted with our premium, farm fresh hemp, for your healthful enjoyment!


Delta 8 THC (Delta 8 Tetrahydrocannabinol) is also a naturally occurring cannabinoid that is found in trace amounts in the hemp plant. 


For this reason, companies like 3 Tall Pines Farm uses a solventless reaction process to produce the Delta 8 distillate from extracted CBD, that is used to craft their Delta 8 products. That means you have pure, clean and potent Delta 8 products for your enjoyment.


Delta 8 produces a marijuana type high that is much milder, at least 50% less, than delta 9 THC.


Delta 8 delivers the beneficial effects of delta 9 THC, without the unwanted, common side effects, such as paranoia and forgetfulness.

You can experience an uplifted euphoria that is functional with delta 8 THC!
