What is Delta 8 THC?
Cannabis comprises more than 100 different cannabinoids with unique benefits. We are most familiar with Delta 9 THC. It is the compound found predominantly in cannabis and creates a psychoactive high..
Delta 8 THC is the little brother of this compound. It comes from Delta 9 THC when it degrades over time through a chemical process the plant goes through naturally as it ages. Because of this process, Delta 8 has a longer shelf life than Delta 9 THC.
Delta 8 only appears in very negligible amounts, only about 1% of the total compounds. So, farmers and manufacturers require large volumes of hemp flowers. They put them through a chemical extraction process that condenses the Delta 8 to be put into tinctures, gummies, and smokables because there is no single flower strain with a high enough concentration to be smoked on its own without any processing. So Delta 8 infused gummies generally last a bit longer.
Will Delta 8 THC Create a High?
Delta 8 THC is unique as it binds to the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the endocannabinoid system. But since it predominantly binds to CB1, which usually lies in the central nervous system, it will reduce anxiety and fogginess. Thus, creating a smooth, clear-headed, motivated, and focused high compared to the more intense high or stoned feeling of Delta 9 THC.
Since Delta 8 induces a less intoxicating sensation, high scientists and farmers are working together to discover the best ways to grow and extract Delta 8 THC and begin usage for medical purposes. There have been a few studies on cancer and HIV patients going through treatment and using Delta 8 to ease the side effects of treatments to help the body through the healing process
Some research shows that Delta 8 also helps the body produce neurotransmitters responsible for memory, cognition, arousal, and neuroplasticity. It boasts additional benefits such as:
- Muscle relaxation.
- Pain relief.
- Stress managemen
- Appetite stimulant.
- Anxiety management.
- Inhibits tumor growth.
Is Delta 8 Legal?
Yes, for now. The 2018 Farm Bill states that if Delta 8 comes from hemp instead of the Cannabis Sativa plant, it is still perfectly legal in many states. Some states have banned Delta 8 THC regardless of origin. The Farm Bill requires that products have 0.3% Delta 9 THC or less. However, Delta 8 THC is currently not specified and is permitted in higher amounts revisions to the law have been made and will continue to be made, which puts Delta 8 under scrutiny for the time being and is in a bit of a gray zone

Does Delta 8 Show Up on Drug Tests?
While many users believe that Delta 8 THC and regular THC have different detection periods, no research suggests the same. Drug tests can detect it, and the detection time depends on your body’s metabolism, Delta-8 use frequency, and the kind of test.
- A blood test usually detects cannabis within 2-12 hours. But upon regular usage, it can be detected after 30 days of last use.
- The most common drug test is the urine test. It can detect cannabis consumption within 30 days of last use. Single-use shows in the results within 3 days of last use, and daily use for 10-15 days.
- Saliva tests can detect cannabis in the body within 24-72 hours of last use.
- On the other hand, cannabis remains detectable in a hair follicle test for as long as 90 days after use.
How to Clear Delta 8 from Your System?
The best way to flush Delta 8 THC from your system is to stop consuming THC-based products. Healthy detoxification is the way. It encourages regenerative processes. For natural detoxification, we recommend trying these methods.
The human body can detoxify itself if it does not consume Delta 8 long enough. The system clears the fat cells by flushing out the THC metabolites.
An athlete's body or someone indulging in sweaty activities can clear their body of Delta 8 THC faster than an idle person. Fat cells store cannabinoids and working out burns fats. Thus, the body circulates lymph fluids, which flushes toxins.
A balanced diet is always necessary, and not only to detox the body. Give your filter and metabolism the support it needs to boost cell regeneration.

The presence of other cannabinoids and terpenes also affects the potency of Delta 8 THC. However, for a Delta 8 product to be considered legal, it should not contain more than 0.3% THC. It is the ideal concentration offering all the benefits minus the side effects. Our products do not include more than the said THC strength.
