Delta 8 THC, also known as tetrahydrocannabinol, is a naturally occurring cannabinoid in cannabis (both hemp and marijuana). It is also known as 8THC, D8, D8 THC, D8, and D8THC. It shares the chemical formula C21H30O2 and a molar mass of 314.46 g/mol with cannabidiol (“CBD”) and Delta 9 tetrahydrocannabinol (“D9THC”). It can be made by converting CBD or Delta 9 THC through a chemical reaction that often involves heat, catalysts, changing pH conditions, and solvents.   

Delta 8 THC is a viscous oil that exists in an “activated” state similar to Delta 9 THC, which means it does not need to be decarboxylated to have an effect.

Many people want to call Delta 8 “synthetic,” but it is not the correct term. The term “conversions” or “derivatives” is more accurate because not only do these compounds occur naturally, but many of them will naturally convert into each other when exposed to heat, time, and light. It’s assumed that all cannabinoids begin as CBGA and spontaneously transform into other cannabinoids as the cannabis plant matures. And everyone who smokes marijuana can convert THCA to Delta 9 THC with heat at home.   

All of this is to say that conversions are a natural aspect of cannabis and the cannabis industry, and they should not be feared in general. These reactions can also make additional rare cannabinoids, including cannabinol (CBN), cannabichromene (CBC), Delta 8 THC, and plentiful cannabinoids like Delta 9 THC that are more cost-effective than extraction.

H.R. 2: The 2018 Agricultural Improvement Act, known as the Farm Bill 2018, makes D8 THC lawful. When hemp was legalized, all isomers, cannabinoids, and hemp compounds that were not Delta 9 THC were allowed. Delta 8 THC is legal in the United States and most states, but not all of them.  

Delta 8 THC binds to receptors in your endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is a signaling network that helps your body maintain its internal balance. Delta 8 specifically binds to CB1 and CB2 receptors, which is why it can produce such potent effects.

The general effects of this THC vary with different individuals. However, the individual experience can adequately be described by simply combining the best features of Delta 9 THC and CBD. It’s described as calming, mood-boosting, and pleasantly uplifting but not intoxicated. Some individuals find it energizing/motivating, especially at lower dosages, while others find it sleep-inducing, especially at greater levels.   

D8 THC veteran users report the feeling of being significantly more active and functional than the D9 THC when dosed correctly. Given its collective actions on CB2 and CB1 receptors compared to D9 THC and CBD, Delta 8 THC may have medical implications (pending additional research).  

Effects of Delta 8 THC on Consumers  

  • Happy Calming/Mood Boost  
  • A pain reliever  
  • Motivating  
  • Sleeping better  
  • Increased motivation  
  • Food cravings have increased.     

The duration of the Delta 8 THC varies highly among individuals. Vapes with high purity last 1-5 hours on average, whereas consumables and tinctures last 3-12 hours. Greater doses, especially in foods and tinctures, produce effects that will stay for long. Because D8 THC has a pretty natural fall down and onset, it can be quite hard for an individual to grasp where their “baseline” is/was after and before ingesting D8 THC.   

This is true for individuals who get mood lifts instead of a “high” directly from D8 THC. Due to the natural start, this typical mood alteration may go unnoticed by the person, leading the major user to that to believe that THC had no impact. We’ve seen this many times in sampling periods where individuals say they don’t feel anything. However, another individual tells them how much better they’ve become in the last few minutes.    


Delta 9 THC is the main psychoactive component of the cannabis plant. It is responsible for the “high” associated with marijuana use. Together with CBD, Delta 9 has a number of holistic benefits, including improving mood, calming down users, and promoting restful sleep.
Delta 9 THC may be a great tool for reducing stress, and it’s a organic alternative to conventional therapies when used with CBD. Delta 9 may also help you feel happier, reduce pain, and speed up recovery.
When consumed in moderation, Delta-9 THC is harmless. Most people are capable of handling it. But of course, having too much of anything can be bad!
Absolutely! Delta 9 THC is totally legal in amounts up to 0.3% THC. Because of the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp products must contain less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC to be sold or purchased. All of our products fall within this criteria!
 New users of Delta 9 THC may experience some side effects. These symptoms are mild and short lasting. Possible adverse effects include red eyes, a dry mouth, hunger, and anxiety. Please contact your physician if serious issues occur.


Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a chemical found in cannabis with therapeutic potential. It is not capable of making you high. However, it has shown promise in curing various diseases, and extensive government-sponsored research is currently being undertaken on its many applications. To improve or vary the effects of CBD, it can be combined with other cannabinoids.  

CBD is a uniquely beneficial and fully natural substance popularized for its ability to provide relief from discomfort and ease tension in consumers. CBD is also a natural alternative to some treatments while naturally uplifting mood and easing the mind.

When the Farm Bill was signed into law in 2018, hemp became legal across the country, including CBD.    

No, CBD should not get you high. This is one of the most popular aspects of CBD; it can benefit consumers without intoxicating them. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that many people utilize for various reasons. We don’t make any medical claims about CBD, but customers say it helps them with everything from aches to attention.


HHC is a cannabinoid that resembles Delta 8. It can be found in trace concentrations within the hemp plant. THC is not present in HHC.   

HHC is popular for providing soothing and mood-boosting effects without clouding the mind or inducing sleep. Instead, many consumers enjoy HHC for its energizing and uplifting effect.

Hemp, alongside all of its cannabinoids, derivatives became legal across countries when the Farm Bill was signed into law in 2018. Hexahydrocannabinol, or HHC, is a cannabinoid found naturally in hemp.    

HHC might make you feel euphoric after using it but should not induce the “high” that some other substances can cause. HHC and THC have effects that are similar despite their structural differences. In comparison, HHC is said to produce effects somewhere between Delta 8 and Delta 9. Compared to Delta 9, users generally experience an energized and euphoric sensation with less paranoia.    unwanted side effects of a “high.”

Side effects from taking HHC are unlikely, but there is a possibility of an involuntary reaction in new users. Possible side effects could be dizziness, exhaustion, appetite, red eyes, or a dry mouth. If more serious side effects are experienced, talk to a medical professional for help.
