COLORADO – Honest Marijuana Company will soon be offering a line of mints and effervescent pills, containing THC-O-Acetate, which is predicted to be a real game changer for individuals suffering from anxiety and sleep issues.
This innovation comes on the heels of the company’s recently patented Nanobidiol Technology, which reduces non-water-soluble substances like cannabinoids into a nano-size so they can be added to transdermal patches, topical lotions, and other cannabis products. The minute size ensures the cleanest, most efficient, and most discreet form of cannabis consumption.
The potential medical benefits of THC-O-Acetate are impactful. For the end consumer, simple, clean and effective consumption of THC-O is ideal. For example, this version of the drug has been found to deliver well on extended sleep for insomnia sufferers, rather than a knockout punch, allowing them a long restful slumber.
Stepping back a little, let’s examine what exactly THC-O is. THC-O is a cannabinoid, like THC, CBD, CBG, and CBN. Those who have experimented with THC-O found the acetate version of the drug to be very spiritual and introspective. Testers of THC-O have also confirmed an almost instant elimination of anxiety, some relaxation and a clear mind. The process of turning THC into an acetate, however, means the body must de-acetylate the drug before it can be activated and create any kind of an effect. This process, similar to eating edibles, is said to take between 30- 45 minutes.
What exactly does a prodrug do? A prodrug can be defined as a compound that is itself biologically inactive but is metabolized in the body to produce an active therapeutic drug. Prodrugs can be used to improve drug delivery or to target the drug to specific cells or tissues. THC-O-acetate is a prodrug of THC, meaning it needs to be deacetylated by enzymes in our bodies before the THC becomes active enough for us to feel the effects. It’s a common technique to create a prodrug specifically for the substances that are changing by themselves if they are just eaten or swallowed. This is a very therapeutic option for people with anxiety as it seems to help most with their condition. Therapeutically and pharmaceutically, a prodrug is a well known technique and Honest Marijuana Company has worked hard to bring it to the consumer.
THC-O is not a naturally occurring cannabinoid (like THC and CBD), so it takes some pretty hefty chemistry to create THC-O in a lab. The processing required strips away all the other beneficial chemical compounds (terpenes and flavonoids) and leaves behind a potent THC isolate with no flavor and no aroma. THC-O, like most other cannabinoids, is not water soluble. Your body subjects the molecule to the same filtering process it does other fat-soluble molecules. Because of those filters, you get a lower percentage of the molecules into your bloodstream when you consume a THC-O product. So where a THC pill or THC oil might not provide the pain relief you’re looking for, a THC-O product might be a viable alternative. The effects and benefits of this substance are undeniable and extremely beneficial to certain groups in the consumer market.
Pairing Honest Marijuana’s patented Nanobidiol technology with THC-O gives the company the ability to turn this non-water-soluble substance into a nano-size format, so it can be added to transdermal patches, topical lotions, mints, honey, virtually anything! Nanobidiol Technology is catapulting non-cannabis companies into the marijuana market! Since the technology works well with THC-O, the excitement is growing as the company gets close to launching a line of mints and effervescent pills, which will contain THC-O as part of their product offerings. The THC-acetate product will be produced in Colorado in a licensed facility from legal THC derived from the cannabis plant. Before sale it will go through testing for potency, total cannabinoids, and residual solvents tests to comply with the state of Colorado’s cannabis regulations.
