What is Delta 8?
What is it?
There are over 120 known cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. The most well-known cannabinoid, Delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), is responsible for the psychoactive and psychotropic properties of the cannabis plant. Detla-8 THC is another cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant, and it provides mildly mood-altering effects like its more well-known cousin, but not to the same extent. Delta-8 products containing no more than 0.3% Delta-9 THC on a dry-weight basis appears to be lawful on the federal level and are lawful in many states across the country as well.
What does it feel like?
Users of Delta-8 products report it being similar to the experience they have when using Delta-9 THC, including marijuana. However, many users claim it’s a more pleasant and less overwhelming experience compared to using Delta-9. For this reason, many users suggest Delta-8 as a good way to use cannabis products without experiencing some of the negative side effects, including paranoia. Most users report feelings of clear-headedness, joy, and positivity while using Delta-8 products. It is a lot of fun.
Where does it come from?
Unlike other popular cannabinoids on the market which are artificially created, Delta-8 THC is naturally expressed in the cannabis plant and we use Delta-8 THC that is derived from hemp plants. By law, hemp plants can contain no more than 0.3% Delta-9 THC on a dry weight basis, and all of our products, including our Delta-8 products, satisfy these requirements. Using these plants, we create Delta-8 products, including flower, gummies, tinctures, and vapes that provide users the benefits of Delta-8 THC while remaining lawful on the federal and many state levels.
How can this be legal?
The 2018 Farm Bill defines “hemp” as: “the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.” Delta-9 THC is the primary intoxicating component of cannabis. Cannabis with a Delta-9 THC level exceeding 0.3 percent is considered marijuana, which remains a Schedule I controlled substance regulated by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) under the Controlled Substances Act. In recent communications, the DEA has made it clear that it is concerned only with whether products contain artificially derived cannabinoids (ours don’t) and whether they exceed 0.3% Delta-9 THC on a dry weight basis (ours don’t). For this reason, our products appear to be lawful on the federal level, and absent state prohibition to the contrary, our Delta-8 products are lawful in most states as well.
