Delta 8

(Delta-8 Tetrahydrocannabinol)

About

Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol, or simply “delta 8” as it is most-often called is a natural but rare isonomer (same formula, different bonds) of classic “THC“, better-known for its delta-9 version.

Arguably existing mostly to exploit the specificity of the federal ban on delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (the coloquial “THC“), delta 8 has provided a similar substance with some psychoactive appeal that has users and producers alike quite excited.

This exhibited ‘high’ already has some governments working to ban Delta 8 or at least classify it the same as other THC. For now, short of a full legalization and exploration of cannabis, its future remains a bit uncertain.

Potential Uses & Benefits

THC‘s desired intoxicating effect, but with a dose of legal ambiguity. Delta-8 isn’t explicitly banned in most places yet, but its strong similarities to delta-9 THC has its future looking a little murky, short of cannabis’ full legalization.

Lifter in field

Strains like those grown on ours and other hemp farms are federally-licensed hemp, containing less than 0.3% THC.

Delta-8 THC typically is produced in even smaller amounts than classic delta-9 THC in plants where it is present.
