Delta 8 THC cannabinoid products are on the rise, and many people are not only talking about D8, but also benefiting from D8 products. Delta 8 THC is very similar to Delta 9 THC but the only difference is the presence of a few electrons.
Curious about Delta 8 products, but unsure about Delta 8? No worries, we here at Emporium 419, with the help of our friends in the CBD industry, have gathered some information we felt would help you better understand Delta 8.
WHAT IS DELTA 8?
Delta 8 is a naturally occurring compound (cannabinoid) in cannabis (hemp and marijuana.)
Delta 8 is an extremely important cannabinoid specifically due to its ability to serve as a more functional substitute for THC. Delta 8 was made legal by H.R. 2: The Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, more commonly referred to as the 2018 Farm Bill. D8 THC is federally legal and is legal in most states.
Benefits of Delta 8:
Delta 8 seems to have less severe side effects in comparison to THC. The effects of Delta 8 can include: a mood boost, a calm and relaxed feeling, helps fight panic & anxiety, soothing aches and pains, motivation, better sleep, an increased appetite, and it can even lessen nausea.
The effects of Delta 8 vary per person. It is motivating/energizing to some, especially at lower doses, and sleep-inducing to others, especially at higher doses.
It is also known to deliver support for nerve cells and to have cancer cells self-destruct. CBD and THC bind to 2 different receptors while Delta 8 binds to both, creating a more comfortable and social effect.
Delta 8 resembles a much stronger version of CBD, so too much could cause paranoia and/or anxiety, which is why we recommend you start small and increase as needed.
If inhaled the effects of Delta 8 can appear within 20 minutes and can last up to 5 hours, depending on the individual.
A typical vape dosage is 1-3 three second puffs.
If consumed orally, Delta 8 can take anywhere between 30 minutes and 4 hours to peak, with effects lasting up to 12 hours. A typical oral dose for Delta 8 is between 10-40 mg. 10 mg can make a big difference in effects for some people, so we generally recommend to not exceed 10 mgs when stepping up in dosage.
Will I pass a drug test?
Simply put the answer is NO. Even though Delta 8 is legal, it is like THC when it is broken down in the body, therefore causing you to fail a drug test.
Safety/Feedback on Delta 8 Products:
Currently, there are no long-term safety data for D8, and in terms of safety with acute usage, there is no known deadly overdose limit with D8. Consuming more than one individuals needs could induce extreme paranoia and anxiety, just like THC edibles. As we mentioned before, starting with a low dose, and working your way up slowly is recommended.
All feedback we have received on the Delta 8 products have been overwhelmingly positive. While we cannot say that Delta 8 treats any specific condition, we can tell you that our customers are using it to treat their conditions and IT IS WORKING.
