Strawberry Lemonade is a relatively recent strain believed to be the product of a cross between Strawberry Cough and Lemon OG. It has quickly gained a loyal following, as well as awards to its name, including the best Sativa flower in the 2016 High Times Cannabis Cup. The lovely blend of mouth-watering sweetness and mouth-puckering sour flavors combine in this distillate to make this strain a hard one to beat in terms of its flavor profile.
Also, with its strong Sativa genetics, the high is commonly described as uplifting and energizing so potentially well-suited for creative and other active tasks. However, it’s also more than capable of sending strong waves of relaxation through the mind and body making it a good companion to an evening chill and film too.
Some of the primary terpenes found in this strain include beta-caryophyllene (found across a range of essential oils and also in cloves) and limonene. Limonene is readily found in the rinds of citrus fruits and known to possess anti-inflammatory as well as antioxidant properties.
As for the strong dose of Delta 8 THC in this product, the cannabinoid itself does occur in far smaller amounts than Delta 9 but it still has a nice potency. And D8 can promote feelings of relaxation or a happy, uplifting feeling. Last but not least, this product undergoes testing by a third-party lab to confirm its potency.
What is Delta 8 THC?
Cannabinoids are chemical compounds secreted from cannabis plants as resin. They have the ability to interact with our body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Delta 8 THC is a cannabinoid that occurs in much smaller concentrations than most other cannabinoids.
Delta 8 is an isomer that forms as Delta-9 THC ages and oxidizes. This process increases the stability of the Δ8 molecular structure so that it does not degrade as easily and lasts much longer over time.
Delta-8 THC and Delta 9-THC contain similarities in their molecular structure. Both contain double bonds, but D8 contains the bond on the 8th carbon chain and not on the 9th. For that reason, D8 and D9 THC react similarly within the Endocannabinoid receptors in the body as a result of their similar presentation of structure and properties.
D8 requires an intricate process of extraction, isolation, conversion, and refinement. With Δ8 there are benefits and effects to serve both medicinal and recreational consumers. Because D8 occurs in smaller concentrations, it’s common to see it sold in the form of distillates or edibles.
The compound Δ8 legally derives from hemp and contains less than 0.3% Δ9-THC in accordance with the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 (also known as the 2018 Farm Bill). Within the Bill, it states that all derivatives, isomers, and cannabinoids in hemp are federally legal provided that all final products contain less than 0.3% D9 THC.
- If you are subject to routine drug screenings, do not consume Δ8-THC.
- Each state has its own separate laws regarding hemp products. Please be aware of the laws within your state/province of residence.
- Psychotropic potency of Delta 8 THC will often vary. For this reason, please do not operate a vehicle after consuming Δ8 products.
- Consult your doctor before use.
