Delta 8 THC is an awesome way to take in the benefits of hemp. It’s a close relative to Delta 9 THC, but it has much more mild effects. Yet there’s still a bit of uplift and euphoria, combined with deep relaxation and peace.
8Delta8 infused its gummies with 15mg of D8-THC and included white grape juice concentrate to give these gummies a true apple taste. At this potency, you’re getting a medium-strength dose. But that can always be cut down, by literally cutting the gummy ring in half.
In addition, the jar has 20 gummy rings for a total potency of 300mg of Delta 8. This is a great starting dose to get the feel for the cannabinoid and figure out if you want to continue taking it. Also, as an ingestible product, it can take a little while to feel the effects. That’s perfectly normal. But, at a maximum, you should be able to notice something within 2 hours.
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.
