What’s Delta-8?

Delta-8 THC (or Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol) is a naturally occurring chemical compound called a cannabinoid that’s naturally expressed in the cannabis plant. Its popularity is on the rise, and you can find it everywhere from boutique weed dispensaries to convenience store shelves.

How Does It Compare to Regular Marijuana (Delta-9-THC)?

Legally speaking and in the eyes of the 2018 Farm Bill and the DEA, the differentiating factor between marijuana, which is a Schedule I controlled substance, and hemp, a federally legal plant, is the Delta-9 THC content of the plant or product. If a product or plant contains more than 0.3% Delta-9 THC on a dry weight basis, it is marijuana and federally illegal under the Controlled Substances Act. If, however, a plant or product contains less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC on a dry weight basis and satisfies other requirements, it is lawful hemp or a lawful hemp-derived product.

From a chemical composition perspective, the two cannabinoids, Delta-9 THC and Delta-8 THC, provide different mood-altering effects and each varies in its level of potency.

Why is there such a growing demand for Delta-8?

For starters, its chemical structure is similar to that of its well-known cousin, Delta-9  THC, the main psychoactive compound found in marijuana, alternatively, the compound responsible for “getting you high.

Both Delta-8 and Delta-9 are forms of THC. But when people refer to THC, they usually mean the Delta-9 that’s found in higher concentrations in marijuana. Both produce a euphoric fuzzy feeling, but Delta-8 causes a milder high.

In fact, Delta-8 is often referred to as “marijuana-lite” or “diet weed.” Other common THC side effects like paranoia, anxiety, and drowsiness are also less potent.

Is Delta-8 Legal?

The lawful status of Delta-8 and hemp-derived products containing Delta-8 varies from state to state. On the federal level, provided it is derived from hemp-derived CBD and contains less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC on a dry weight basis, Delta-8 and products containing Delta-8 are lawful.

Any user who is subject to THC screening should refrain from using our hemp products unless they have been specifically and clearly approved for use by their employer or other legal entity that requires the screening.

Will this show up on a drug test?

Our products will cause you to test positive for THC. We recommend not using them if you are required to pass a drug test for marijuana.

Does this feel like marijuana?

Many people think so! Delta-8 THC is a cannabinoid naturally expressed in the cannabis plant. It has many of the same effects of its more well-known (and more potent) cousin cannabinoid, Delta-9 THC. However, many users of Delta-8 report it to be a milder version of Delta-9 THC, and with less psychoactive effects. The result is a cannabinoid that still provides mood altering properties without giving its user a feeling of being overwhelmed.
