Delta 8 THC, also known as D8, is a hemp-derived cannabis product that produces a mild psychoactive effect and contains all of the wellness benefits of other cannabis products. Delta 8 THC is a semi-synthetic cannabinoid that binds to the same receptors as the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, Delta 9 THC. In fact, D8 is considered a sister cannabinoid to D9 and provides a milder high than D9.
What makes it a semi-synthetic cannabinoid is that it occurs naturally in the hemp plant but can also be manufactured in a lab. As Delta 8 THC only occurs naturally in small amounts, it must be manufactured in the lab from other cannabinoids in order for there to be enough to sell.
What does Delta 8 THC feel like?
If you haven’t tried D8 yet, then you might be wondering what D8 THC feels like. D8 THC provides a milder feeling than marijuana and is more likely to produce pleasant bodily feelings than a head high. So you may feel physically great and mentally clear and calm.
People have reported fewer side effects from D8 THC than they get from D9 THC. You’re much less likely to “green out” or feel anxious and paranoid from the D8. If you are uncomfortable consuming marijuana, Delta 8 is a great alternative to let you enjoy the wellness benefits with fewer side effects.
Is Delta 8 THC legal?
Yes, D8 THC is legal! In 2018 congress passed the Hemp Farm Bill, which opened the doors for legal use of hemp as long as it contains less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC. As we mentioned above, D9 THC is the active ingredient in marijuana but not in hemp.
Some states have rolled out their own restrictions for hemp-derived products. For example, in Iowa, all CBD must contain 0% THC, and Delta 8 is outlawed. Check with your local laws and restrictions to determine if D8 is allowed in your state.
Additionally, if you’re going to consume Delta 8, you do need to be aware that most drug tests do not distinguish the difference between Delta 8 THC and Delta 9 THC. Therefore, you can test positive for THC from using D8.
