A Look Into Hydroxy THC

A Look Into Hydroxy THC

With so many “new” cannabinoids hitting the market, it’s very easy to get lost in the ABCs of Hemp. However, when you look at Hydroxy THC, it shouldn’t be a shock when you discover what it is. We’re diving deep into Hydroxy THC and why you might already be familiar with it but not know it.

What is Hydroxy THC?

What is Hydroxy THC breakdown

The Hydroxy THC (HXY) cannabinoid is the primary byproduct produced by the body after taking THC. In other words, it’s the chemical you produce once your body has absorbed THC, and it is made anytime you inhale or ingest THC.


You might already be familiar with 11-Hydroxy-THC (HXY11) because your body turns THC into this chemical. Therefore, if you’ve ever taken any form of THC, you’ve already felt its effects. However, we took a step further and isolated this chemical.

The results are an easier and faster way to get this cannabinoid into your system. You likely won’t get the desired effects from this cannabinoid alone. The reason is that your body tends to break down THC into different chemicals, not just into 11-Hydroxy-THC.

The 8-Hydroxy-THC is another chemical that your body breaks THC into when consumed. In addition to the 11-Hydroxy-THC, HXY8-THC is one of many natural chemicals your body produces.

When more than one cannabinoid is combined, the result is what’s known as the Entourage Effect. You will discover that different cannabinoids, when mixed with certain Terpenes, tend to hit differently. Also, you’ll find other versions of THC, when combined, tend to produce the desired effects of Hydroxy THC.


What’s great about Hemp is that it produces different forms of THC due to certain restrictions in traditional THC. Therefore, 9-Hydroxy-THC is yet another chemical that your body naturally produces.

The numbers in front of the Hydroxy define where you can find the double bond in the carbon chain. So, just like Delta-8, Delta-9, and Delta-11, you’ll find different forms of Hydroxy THC.

What Does Hydroxy THC Feel Like?

What does Hydroxy THC Feel Like?

When you take any THC form, you must wait for the smoke, vapor, or edible to circle through your system. You end up feeling high, but the high depends on your tolerance, amounts consumed, etc. The same applies to Hydroxy THC.

Tolerance Levels

Your tolerance levels depend on your age, weight, how experienced you are with THC and other factors. THC is not the same for everyone because of your Endocannabinoid System (ECS). 

The ECS regulates certain functions in your body, so you’ll find some people with a naturally high tolerance. On the contrary, this is why some people get incredibly high when they take very little THC.

The Difference In The High

When you isolate the THC and turn it into Hydroxy THC, it elongates its carbon chain. The longer the carbon chain in the type of THC, the more of it your body can absorb.

Since we’ve already gone through the trouble of breaking down the THC, your body can absorb more. In theory, you can compare the high to the Lights Out Collection, but it comes down to individual tolerance.

Hydroxy THC Cartridges

The Hydroxy Cartridges come in 4 distinct strains, which include 2 Sativas, 1 Indica, and 1 Hybrid. What’s great about these carts is that they’re 2-packs and are 2 grams each.

Traditionally, carts have been only 1 gram. However, we like to do things a bit differently and decided not only to make them 2 grams but also a double pack.

Hydroxy THC Disposables

What makes our Hydroxy THC Disposables unique is that they are 3.5 grams. One of the issues that many of our customers encounter is that the distillate gets stuck.

Inexperienced users might now know how to troubleshoot clogged disposables. Therefore, we added a pre-heat function meant to heat the distillate, and what this does is loosen the distillate so that you’re able to unclog it with ease.
