Delta 8 THC

Delta 8 THC is short for Delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol and is a positional isomer to the more naturally occurring Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9 THC). Delta 8 THC is a phytocannabinoid meaning it is naturally occurring in the cannabis plant. It is most likely formed naturally due to the degradation of Δ9 THC. Delta 8 THC in its pure form is a viscous oil that does not crystallize. This source contains articles that go more into depth on Delta 8 THC.

What is Delta 8?

Delta 8 THC is a form of tetrahydrocannabinol that has been the talk of the town by both younger and older people alike. Contrary to its recent popularity, Delta 8 THC has been around since 1941. It was originally synthesized by the chemist Roger Adams from the University of Illinois.

Delta 8 vs Delta 9 chemical difference

Delta 8 is different from Delta 9 from a chemical level because of the placement of a particular double bond on its chain of carbon atoms. Delta 9 has the double bond on the 9th carbon whereas Delta 8 has the double bond on its 8th.

Is Delta 8 THC psychoactive?

Yes it absolutely is. Although Delta 8 THC is different from Delta 9 THC, it should not be taken lightly. The effects from using Delta 8 THC can include uplifting feelings, dry mouth, sedation, sleepiness and so on. It is not recommended to drive or operate any kind of heavy machinery or equipment while using this item. Delta 8 THC effects have been considered to be lighter than Delta 9 THC when utilizing them as an edible, however, the effects have been said to last much longer.

How is Delta 8 THC made?

Delta 8 THC can be found in Cannabis and Hemp plants in very small amounts. For that reason the majority of Delta 8 THC that is on the market is made by synthesizing CBD isolate. This process can involve using acids that are not safe for consumption, this is why full panel testing is always recommended when looking at any Delta 8 THC product. Full panel testing normally includes potency testing, mycotoxin, residual solvents, and heavy metal and pesticide testing.

Will Delta 8 cause a failure on a drug test?

Yes, Delta 8 THC is an isomer of THC, just like Delta 9 THC. If you do have to consider taking any drug tests, it is not recommended to intake any form of THC. Delta 8 THC can stay in your system in regards to a drug test anywhere from 2 to 3 months on average. Each person’s endocannabinoid system works differently so the length of time it stays in your system may vary.

Is Delta 8 THC Legal?

According to the 2018 Farm Bill “ That act defines hemp as: “All derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent.” In short, so long as the Delta 8 THC is lab tested to have 0.3% Delta 9 THC or less Delta 8 is completely legal. Unfortunately since this legislation has passed, so have others. There are a growing number of states that are making changes to regulate and even ban Delta 8 THC.

Is Delta 8 safe?

Delta 8 THC is 100% safe as long as you are purchasing it from a reputable product. An example of a reputable product would consist of having full panel labs so you can verify the safety of it. The lab results of a product can be found on the label of the product or package via QR code. In order to view the lab results from a QR code you will need to use the camera application in your smartphone to scan the code, which will then take you to the site to view the results. If a product does not have lab results it is not considered safe.

Ways to intake Delta 8 THC

There are several forms of intaking Delta 8 THC. The most common form is vaporizing it. Vaporization can be summarized by saying a certain amount of heat is applied to the distillate to change its form to a vapor so it can be inhaled. Vaping can be done portably through a disposable cartridge or done on a desktop rig, commonly referred to as “dabbing”. The other method is by ingestion. Ingesting can be done by the way of tincture or edible. The benefit of using the aforementioned methods is that both use the help of a fat like butter for a cookie, or MCT oil for a tincture to help its absorption in the body. Once Delta 8 THC is processed by the liver it becomes the metabolized 11 hydroxy form, making the potency very similar to Delta 9 THC.

Vivimu clear distillate is the purest and most potent delta 8 I have ever had the enjoyment of using. I has no taste once mixed into coconut oil, and makes a perfect tincture. I have also had great results making chocolate bars with it. Overall a great versatile distillate that can be eaten, dabbed, or used in any way one pleases *responsibly of course*

Awesome Sauce!!! This distillate is awesome, and a better price than any others I have seen. I cut it down to about 75% strength using a double boiler and MCT oil. I use it orally at this strength. You can use it for cooking too at this level. You can use it full strength to refill vape carts, you will need a syringe and an empty reusable cartridge. Heat it in a double boiler until it is loose enough to inject it into the cartridge.

Delta 8 THC + THCp Disposable Vape: Trainwreck
Very solid vape!!! It's more economical to buy cannabinoids in bulk, that said I had a bunch of spare points left over and didn't feel like going through the hassel of filling a vape, this is a really nice one! The THCP gives it a decent potentness and the fact it's two grams makes it good for just grabbing and carrying around with you whenever you might wanna get a decent high, I would get again, also the terpenes are amazing <3 I love trainwreck, remember smoking it on the train tracks with my friends when I was a teenager <3

Great stuff, it's pretty thick similar to HHC, really shines when mixed with something to thin it out a bit.
