The Utoya Brand
If you’re looking for a one-stop cannabinoid company, you’ll fall in love with the Utoya brand the moment you visit their website. The company offers a stunning assortment of every type of product you can think of, from familiar favorites like gummies and tinctures to rare finds like hash and moonrocks. The site has a bit of a unique layout in that they categorize everything by products instead of cannabinoids. For example, if you’re looking for a THC-O vape cartridge, you’ll have to navigate to the vape section and select the cannabinoid from the drop-down menu. In a way, this categorization allows you to see everything that Utoya has to offer instead of restricting your browsing to a specific cannabinoid.
Utoya has several different options when it comes to their vape cartridges: a single pack, a three pack, and a disposable. Each option is available in several different flavors and is sold for $32.99. If you need a vape device (called a battery) to use with your cartridge, Utoya offers a simple device in several colors for an extra $10. The cartridges themselves are not made with any cutting agents and contain a full gram of oil (900mg of THC-O and 100mg of trace terpenes and other cannabinoids. Keep in mind that cartridges contain a concentrated form of cannabinoids, so it’s best to start slowly and gradually increase the dose after you understand your body’s reaction to the initial dose.
Utoya goes above and beyond when it comes to their product descriptions, something that is extremely useful for beginner and advanced users alike. Each product contains a lengthy description about what the cannabinoid is, what to expect during your high, recommended dosage amounts, how long the high lasts, and other useful information tailored to the product and cannabinoid listed.
If you’re curious about the purity and potency or have general questions about cannabinoids, Utoya has a tab called Learning that features several topics in their drop-down menu including some Testing Results and how cannabinoids work naturally with your endocannabinoid system. Now that we’ve reviewed the Utoya brand, it’s time to check out their Raspberry Kush THC-O vape cartridge!
Utoya THC-O Vape Cartridge Review
Vape cartridges can seem like an intimidating option for new users because it requires a pen-style vape device with a 510-screw in connection. The cartridge screws into the base of the pen mod, and the pen mod itself must be charged and capable of firing at a certain temperature. A quick Google search will display sites that carry such hardware, and can be as inexpensive as $20 (although the more expensive ones can top $100).
The Utoya THC-O vape cartridge screwed in easily to the base of my vape pen (I use the Vuber Pulse Pen) and was ready to use instantly. I noted that the mouthpiece for the cartridge had a very wide bore tip, a stark contrast to the other duck-billed cartridges I’ve used in the past. The yellow oil in the cartridge was extremely thick and sludgy, and did not move at all despite tilting the device from several angles.
I held the device to my lips and pressed the firing pin. Vapor flowed into my mouth and I immediately tasted a sweet and fruity raspberry flavor. The entire hit was smooth and calming. I felt no urge to cough and no tightening sensation in my chest, which was surprising compared to other Delta-8 THC cartridges I’ve tried. The sweet flavor made me want to take more hits, but I decided to stop at three hits and see how the THC-O felt.
I noticed that the effects began much more gradually than traditional Delta-8 THC cartridges. While Delta-8 THC hits usually begin in under 5 minutes, the THC-O started to kick in after about 10 minutes. I noticed a familiar tingling in my hands, feet, and face and an enhanced sensitivity to touch. After half an hour, I felt more of the traditional effects of Delta-8 THC such as sleepiness, heavy eyelids, and warm euphoria.
I also felt a light dizziness, very brief paranoia, and some queasiness in my stomach, but nothing that detracted from the high. The high lasted for several hours, slowly increasing for about an hour. The full-blown high made me extremely relaxed and sleepy, and I experienced the “couch-lock” sensation very strongly. I easily slipped into a deep sleep and woke up feeling refreshed and invigorated.
On a side note, these cartridges are more of an advanced user item, but can be used by anyone with a bit of practice. Keep in mind that THC affects each person differently, depending on age, weight, metabolism, gender, previous exposure to THC, and much more. You should always consult your primary care physician before taking any cannabinoid for the first time. THC-O in particular is especially potent and may cause adverse reactions if you take too much in a single sitting, such as extreme drowsiness and paranoia. You should not attempt to operate machinery or vehicles while under the influence of a THC-O high. Lastly, no cannabinoid is ever intended to replace your current medication and should not be used to treat or cure any disease.
I was completely blown away by all that Utoya had to offer. From popular cannabinoids like CBD and Delta-8 THC to newer cannabinoids like THC-O and HHC, Utoya had an incredible selection of every type of product on the market. While I was expecting more of an intense high from the THC-O cartridge, it felt more like a prolonged Delta-8 THC high (which wasn’t a bad thing!).
I loved the sweet and fruity flavor along with the ease of use, and especially appreciated that I didn’t need to cough or experience a tightening in my chest. Sometimes cartridges can have a bit of a learning curve with the inhale technique and how long to hold the vapor in your lungs, and can cause the user to violently cough if not done properly.
The Raspberry Kush cartridge was beautifully designed with the wide-bore drip tip and company logo engraved into the metal. I loved that the intensity of the high built up over time and lasted for several hours, something that doesn’t usually happen with vape cartridges. Lastly, I deeply appreciated Utoya’s dedication to information presentation in the product description. Even as an experienced THC user, I was intrigued to read about the different types of cannabinoids, effects, and dosage amounts that Utoya lists for each product. It was truly an honor to review the Raspberry Kush THC-O vape cartridge from Utoya and I look forward to reviewing more of their products in the near future!
