A Guide To Delta 8 THC
Delta 8 is legal THC. Learn more about Delta 8, its effects, benefits, and how it relates to THC.
What is Delta 8
You are not alone if you have ever wondered what Delta 8 is. The existence of this hemp-derived cannabinoid makes it possible for states in which where Delta 9 THC (the original THC) is not legal to get high legally. In other words, it’s legal THC. If you are wondering if Delta 8 gets you high, the answer is, a resounding yes, legally.
It is legal because it is derived from the hemp plant and is not considered a schedule one drug. Furthermore, Delta 8 rose in popularity in 2018 when The Farm Bill was signed into law giving federal rights to grow hemp for research purposes. From there, many cannabinoids including Delta 8 became available to the majority of Americans.
Delta 8 Is All Natural
Our Delta-8 THC products are derived from the hemp plant and CBD, which is a cannabinoid found in the hemp plant. The National Cancer Institute defines Delta 8 THC as “an analogue of tetrahydrocannabinol with… appetite-stimulating, analgesic, and neuroprotective properties”.
How Is Delta 8 Made
Delta 8 THC is an analog of Delta 9 THC. Most Delta 8 is made as a distillate that can be used as an oil for vapes. The most popular one of these distillates is Live Resin, which is a process where the hemp plant is flash-frozen immediately after harvest to preserve its natural flavors, aromas, and cannabinoids. The plant material is then extracted using CO2 or ethanol. The final product is a delta 8 Live Resin that contains up to 99% Delta 8 THC.
Delta 8 is a potent cannabinoid that can provide users with a powerful high, yet milder than Delta 9. However, it is important to start with a low dose to avoid any unwanted side effects.
