Delta 8 is very similar to another well known cannabinoid, delta-9-THC, the cannabinoid in marijuana that creates the high feeling associated with smoking weed. Delta 8 is known for creating more of a body high than a head high, and is generally weaker than marijuana.
Delta 8 is one of many cannabinoids, naturally occurring compounds found in hemp and marijuana plants. Delta 8 and other “buzz products” have exploded in popularity of late, with many online stores and even gas stations selling a wide variety of products.
Buzz products include a bevy of cannabinoids, some still being discovered today, that are naturally occurring in hemp and marijuana. These cannabinoids are found only in trace amounts, so to create products with ample quantities of cannabinoids, a special laboratory extraction process is required. These products are federally legal as per the 2018 Farm Bill, because they are derived from hemp.
The benefits of delta 8 and other buzz products aresimilar to smoking weed. Some of these cannabinoids are weaker and some are stronger. They can create feelings of euphoria, relaxation, and pain relief.
Yes. Delta 8 and most other buzz products will appear on a drug test. Most drug tests are not advanced enough to differentiate between these products and traditional THC.
When it comes to delta 8 edibles, the effects should kick in within 30 to 90 minutes, and the effects will last roughly four to five hours. Vaping delta 8 is faster, as the effects can kick in as quickly as five to six minutes. The effects can last up to five hours.
Buzz product metabolites (detectable by drug tests) can stay in your system for up to 90 days. However it’s important to note, typical tests can only detect metabolites for only a few days. If you’re a chronic user of buzz products, you might test positive even after 30 days.
Delta 8 and other buzz products are fairly new, and have not been tested by the FDA. At this time all of the evidence we have for these products effects is anecdotal. Delta 8 and the other buzz products have been rising in popularity since the passing of the 2018 farm bill made them federally legal. Thousands of consumers have tried, or regularly used, buzz products with many reporting positive effects. The most important safety tip when using these products, is to know what you’re getting. Investigate both the company and the product and be sure that you are getting only the cannabinoid that is being advertised.
If you are a first time, or inexperienced user of marijuana or delta 8 products, it’s best to start with a low dosage of 5-15mg. If you are of intermediate experience and have some tolerance built up, you may want to bump the dosage to 15-45mg. If you are a regular user and have a high tolerance, try as much as 45-150mg.
While it is not technically the same thing,delta 8 and other buzz productshave similar intoxicating and psychoactive effects. Most of these products will show up on a drug test in the same way as THC.
Yes. All buzz products, including Delta 8, will make you high in a way that is similar to marijuana, but a bit weaker. The high from delta 8 also tends to affect the body more than the mind.
Because they are derived from hemp, buzz products like delta 8 are federally legal. This does not mean they are alllegal on the state levelthough. There are some states who have relegated certain products to medical use only, and some that have banned them completely. Legality also depends on the specific buzz product in question. Check out our map of which states have legalized or banned which cannabinoids.
It is legal to fly with delta 8 in most states, but not all of them. While the TSA is not actively looking for buzz products, it is important to check local regulations before attempting to fly with delta 8. Regulations may vary by specific cannabinoid as well.
The easiest way to buy delta 8 and other buzz products is through an online retailer such as Eden’s Herbals. This way you can get the product delivered directly to your door.
Side effects of buzz products like delta 8 are relatively unknown, but users taking too large a dosage have reported anxiety, nausea, and vomiting. To avoid these side effects, it is important to pay attention to your dosage.
Most things can become addictive when abused. Buzz products such as delta 8 are no exception. You can build up a tolerance to buzz products, which will mean you require more and more of them in order to achieve the same effect. Left unchecked, this could create a form of addiction. This is easily avoided though. Simply take periodic breaks in order to keep your tolerance in check.
Buzz products like delta 8 are natural compounds that can be found in trace amounts in hemp and marijuana. There is some misconception around whether delta 8 and other buzz products are natural or not. This is because it does require a special process in order to extract it in the quantities required for commercial use. This is due to two factors. In order to be federally legal, the cannabinoid must come exclusively from hemp. Because hemp contains such tiny quantities of these cannabinoids, it must go through a particular extraction process in a laboratory.
So to put it simply, while delta 8 does require a laboratory to extract in large quantities, the compound is a naturally occurring cannabinoid that exists in hemp and marijuana.
Delta 8, 9, and 10 are all fairly similar but do range in strength, and differ slightly in effect. Delta 8 is the weakest of the three, and affects the body more than the head. Delta 9 is the compound found in marijuanawhich is responsible for the high. This means the high will be most similar to smoking traditional weed. Delta 10 is the strongest of the trio, and creates more of a head high than a body high.
THCO is a newer cannabinoid that is derived from hemp just like delta 8. It is said to be roughly three times stronger than delta 9. This means that in larger doses it can be a psychedelic with some users reporting mild hallucinations. In small doses the high will be more conventional.
THCP is one of the newest and strongest cannabinoids to hit the market. It is thought to be a whopping 33 times as powerful as THC. This makes for an intense and intoxicating high. Not for the faint of heart.
HHC is a newer and often misunderstood little cannabinoid with an interesting set of effects. It is reported to improve mood, affecting the head more than the body, butwithout affecting the users ability to stay in control. It is thought to be of a similar strength to delta 8, or a little less powerful. There are, however, some conflicting reports on it’s strength and effects.
THCV is one of the most interesting cannabinoids emerging today. Users report it helps suppress appetite, leading many to call it “diet-weed”. It also seems to improve energy, focus, and clarity. It is a weaker strength, about half that of delta 8. This makes it an ideal choice for productively micro-dosing throughout the day.
