Delta-8 THC FAQ
What is Delta-8 THC?

How to use Delta-8 THC

What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, generally known as CBD, has become one of the most popular cannabinoids of this era and is one of the many cannabinoids found in cannabis and hemp plants. Similar to other cannabinoids, CBD is mostly contained in the resinous regions of the cannabis flower rather than in the stem, seeds, or leaves of the plant. This extract has been used for a variety of products including tinctures, edibles, flower, concentrates, disposables, cartridges, and more. CBD has become a sensation due to its calming properties and the promotion of much deeper and more restful sleep.
Does CBD get you high?

There are effects that will be felt but are nothing in comparison to consuming servings of Delta 9 and are significantly more subdued.
Is CBD legal?

In reaction to external disruptions, such as physical and mental stress, the ECS’s main job is to maintain the body in a condition of homeostasis. This is where CBD comes into play.
Will CBD induce a failed drug test?
When consuming hemp products, it is important to note that there then be small traces of THC. However, CBD is one of the only cannabinoids available that contains 0% THC and will not result in a positive test for cannabis.

The first mention of Delta 11 was in a 1974 paper on cannabis use and was studied in more detail in a 1990 laboratory study. This is a rare and natural variant of THC (D9) found in very small traces in cannabis and hemp, and is growing in popularity due to its potential usefulness.
Is Delta-11 THC stronger than Delta-9 THC?
One study has shown that 11-hydroxy-THC is up to three times more potent than delta 9; however, 11-hydroxy-THC and Delta 11 are quite different.

What is THC-P?
Tetrahydrocannabiphorol, or THCP, is a naturally occurring phytocannabinoid found in small concentrates in cannabis and hemp plants, having a close relation to THC. This variant was discovered only in late 2019 by a team of Italian researchers and has quickly surged in popularity. Research has suggested that THCP may have a more pronounced impact on the psychoactivity experience when compared to Delta 9.
How is THC-P stronger than delta-9 THC?
THCP is recognized as a stronger cannabinoid because of its alkyl side chains, which are significantly longer than those of conventional THC. As a result, the cannabinoid binds to bodily receptors more firmly and is believed to potentially be up to 33 times more powerful than THC at affecting CB1 receptors, which makes this variation very potent.
Is THC-P legal?
Hemp-derived goods that contain less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC have been federally legal since the inception of the 2018 Farm Bill. Although recognized and reported to be more potent than THC, this cannabinoid is derived from hemp, and products listed on this site are in accordance with the Farm Bill.

What is THC-O?
THC-O, or THC O acetate, is a semi-synthetic compound derived from hemp and has risen very quickly in popularity. Although there are studies reported from the 1940s, recent interest in this compound has sparked further investigation. This molecule is created by adding acetic anhydride to Delta 8 THC molecules after being extracted from CBD. Do not try and make THC-O at home, as it has been proven by Dr. Ethan Russo that “the process of making thc o acetate is inherently dangerous.” This is why THC-O products are created in sophisticated laboratories with no exposure to humans.
Does THC-O get you high?
THC-O is a derivative of hemp and has been reported by news outlets to be up to three times more potent than Delta 9 THC. Although not proven by much scientific research, users refer to THC-O as the “spiritual cannabinoid.” Users have reported experiencing an uplifting and euphoric sensation, even mentioning more psychedelic effects compared to other cannabinoids.
Is THC-O legal?
THC-O is federally legal as it is extracted from hemp plants and is an alteration of CBD and Delta 8. The 2018 Farm Bill makes this cannabinoid legal on a federal level, however, that does not make it legal on the state level. Since this cannabinoid is not fully naturally occurring and is created in a lab using hemp ingredients, there is a chance that this cannabinoid may be reevaluated, so enjoy it while you can!

Although there is not a substantial amount of data or studies to explore the side effects of THC-O, it is a cannabinoid that may provide similar effects. Users report that the most common negative effects are dizziness, paranoia, slight hallucinations, nausea, dry eyes, and disconnected thoughts.
Will THC-O induce a failed drug test?
THC-O may not be THC, but it is more likely you will fail a drug test since this cannabinoid is an acetate of THC. Most tests look for the THC metabolite which this cannabinoid will break down to, so it will show positive on a drug test.
