You’ve probably been hearing a lot of good things about Delta 8 THC. The reason why is because a lot of shops and companies have started to carry Delta 8 products in their stores. There are a lot of reasons why someone would choose Delta 8 over Marijuana. However, here is probably the best advice you’ll get if you are new to Delta 8.
Understanding Delta 8 THC
In order to understand what Delta 8 THC is, you’ll have to know a couple of things about it first. The most important thing to keep in mind is that Delta 8 is not Marijuana, and it’s legal in more states because of that.
Delta 8 Is Not Marijuana
You might be shocked to learn that Delta 8 is not considered to be Marijuana. Although it does produce psychoactive effects, it doesn’t possess high amounts of Delta 9 THC to be considered Marijuana. Also, this is what makes CBD legal - the fact that it has small traces of Delta 9 THC. For the most part the Delta 9 THC is either very minimal or not enough to detect.
It Is Legal In More States
The fact that Delta 8 THC is not labeled as Marijuana makes it legal in more states. Although some states like Alaska and Idaho have pushed to make it illegal to sell or use Delta 8; it’s still available in more states than Marijuana. Unlike Marijuana, Delta 8 is not classified as a Schedule I drug because it’s Hemp derived - just like CBD.

Delta 8 Will Get You High
Here is the biggest draw to Delta 8 THC; the fact that it can get you high like Marijuana does. Although it’s less potent, it can still trigger some side effects so we recommend taking it easy at first.
The most common knowledge about Delta 8 THC is that it’s the less potent version of Marijuana. However, as we discussed earlier - Delta 8 is not Marijuana, it’s Hemp. But, when comparing the effects between Marijuana and Delta 8, you’ll find the effects to be less potent. This is because of a slight difference in its chemical structure.
Delta 8 gets its name from the location of its double bond, which is in the 8th carbon. However, Marijuana has its bond in the 9th carbon. This small difference not only produces a less potent high, but also makes Delta 8 legal, and Delta 9 illegal. The Marijuana plant produces high amounts of Delta 9 THC; the Hemp plant (where Delta 8 comes from) produces low amounts of Delta 9 THC.
You can expect a similar effect to Marijuana because Delta 8 is a type of THC. This means that it might take you a little more Delta 8 to reach similar effects to Marijuana, but it still might not be the same. A lot of Delta 8 users enjoy this because Marijuana tends to be too strong; and it can produce anxiety or other uncomfortable feelings.
Take It Easy
This doesn’t mean that Delta 8 can’t produce any negative side effects if you take too much. In fact, it can trigger anxiety or a sense of feeling anxious if you take too much. This is especially true with our Edibles, just because you don’t feel it right away it doesn’t mean that it didn’t work. Our tip for you is to take it easy despite what you’ve heard about its potency.
Now that you have some general understanding of what Delta 8 is, here is how we incorporate Delta 8 into other cannabinoids. Although some of these Collections tend to be for more advanced users; you can discover how these products are different from just regular Delta 8.
Our Euphorica Collection is Delta 8 THC that has been enriched with Delta 10 THC. If you’re not familiar with Delta 10, it’s another cannabinoid who’s double bond is located in the 10th carbon. However, this tends to cause a more uplifting experience in its users. What most users love about it is the head-high they tend to get when using our Euphorica Collection products.
Another great product line is our Omega Collection, which is Delta 8 THC that has been enriched with THC-O. This is a Hemp derived product that is said to pack a punch with our users. Also, it’s been often referred to as a “Spiritual High” on its own. However, that’s the reason why we enrich our Delta 8 in order to balance it out.
Delta 9 Collection
Finally, our Delta 9 THC products contain within the legal limit of Delta 9 THC and it’s derived from Hemp. This means you can feel similar effects to Marijuana, but still within that Hemp derived THC space. This is a great product if you enjoy Delta 9 THC edibles and want to experience a similar effect.
Our advice to you is try something that you will enjoy. The only way to figure out what that product is by trying different products. If you enjoy vaping try different Cartridges or Disposables. If you enjoy Edibles try some Gummies or Shots. Whatever you’re into you can probably find a Delta 8 version of it. Also, trying different Cannabinoids such as Delta 10 or THC-O might be something that you end up falling in love with.
