What is Delta 8 Hemp Derivative?
Delta 8 Hemp Derivative (Δ-8 Tetrahydrocannabinol) is an naturally occurring compound produced by the hemp plant. It is an isomer of both CBD(cannabidiol) and Delta-9 THC (Δ-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol). The hemp plant produces Delta 8 naturally, but it can also be derived from CBD. It comes ready for your body and easily consumed via vaping or eating it.
The Missing Link Between CBD and Delta 9 THC
Delta 9 THC is a god-send for some people. It can provide relief from pain, anxiety, insomnia, inflammation, and many other ailments. It does, however, have its share of negative side effects when too much is consumed at once. The unwanted psychoactive side effects of delta 9 are anxiety, paranoia, lazy stoneritis, short-term memory, loss and psychosis.
CBD, on the other hand, has virtually no psychoactive effects. It is calming and has powerful anti-inflammatory properties.
Delta 8 seems to be the balance between delta 9 and CBD. It provides a clear, happy sense of well being without spinning into paranoia or anxiety. It quietly relaxes stiff muscles, while leaving your head sharp and focused.
NOTE: Like with everything else, these statements are referring to responsible dosing. If you take too much of anything, you’re going to have bad effects. This is all anecdotal data because published studies have been completed to prove this. However, everyone that uses Delta 8 reports the same positive effects. In fact, most of the people I test say they like it “Better Than Nine.”
The Legality of Delta 8
Delta 8 is legal if it is derived from legal CBD and contains less than .3% Delta 9, per the 2018 U.S. Farm Bill. Because Delta 8 exhibits some psychoactivity, The DEA issued an Interim Final Review saying that it’s doesn’t think Delta 8 should be legal. Regardless of The DEA’s feelings about it, Delta 8 is legal when legally obtained. This makes chain of custody on how you got your Delta 8 products very important. It is important to remember that Delta 8 looks and feels illegal, so law enforcement can still question you about it and give you a hard time. This can usually be avoided by not acting like an asshole to police officer. Just like any other interaction with police, be polite, explain this has less than .3% Delta 9 THC and is Federally Legal since the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill.
