What is Delta 8 THC
Delta-8-Tetrahydrocannabinol is a psychoactive cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. It is an isomer of Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol, the compound commonly known as THC. Delta-8-THC has antiemetic, anxiolytic, orexigenic, analgesic, and neuroprotective properties.
Much like CBD and delta-9 THC, delta-8 THC imparts the relaxation, focus, and uplift that consumers expect, along with reported decreased nausea. These effects have yet to be studied at length, but user-experience shows promising signs.
Delta-8-THC is chemically different from delta-9-THC by only a few atomic bonds and still offers a potent high of its own. While delta-8-THC only exists naturally in fractions of a percent, companies are finding value in concentrating esoteric cannabinoids for their unique effects and applications.
These are the top reasons why CBD interest users nation-wide.
WHAT IS THC-O
In recent months, a synthetic compound derived from hemp called THC-O acetate—often referred to simply as THC-O (pronounced “THC oh”)—has quickly gained popularity among Americans who don’t have access to legal cannabis.
THC-O’s appeal lies in its potency and its legal status. Research has found that it’s roughly three times stronger than conventional THC. It has been called “the psychedelic cannabinoid” for its borderline hallucinatory effects. Because it’s derived from federally legal hemp, THC-O products are becoming increasingly popular in the states where consumers don’t have access to legal, state-licensed delta-9 THC products.
And now that delta 8 THC, its trendy cousin, has been outlawed in some states across the country and flagged by the DEA, THC-O’s star may rise even faster.
What is Full Spectrum Hemp-Derived CBD
Full spectrum CBD is derived from hemp and contains many cannabinoids beyond only CBD, including low amounts of THC, along with other elements of the hemp plant, including naturally-occurring terpenes, essential vitamins, fatty acids, protein, and more.
