1. What is Delta 8? 

Delta-8 THC is a natural existing cannabinoid in hemp, similar to CBD. The 2018 Farm Bill classifies hemp as an agricultural product, making CBD + Delta-8 THC legal on the Federal Level.

2. What are the positive effects of Delta 8?

Users describe Delta-8 THC as a "middle of the road" product between CBD and THC. What that means is Delta-8 delivers a high, psychoactive feeling, without the paranoia or anxiety affect that many associate with Delta-9 THC.

3. What can Delta 8 help with?

Delta 8 may help to elevate your mood, increase mental clarity, it may promote relaxation, reduces nausea, aids in sleep. 

4. Is Delta 8 federally legal?

The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 also known as The 2018 Farm Bill states that all derivatives, isomers, and cannabinoids in hemp are legal, given that the final product has less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC. We reccomend checking your state laws to make sure of the legality in your specific state. 

5. How long will it take to feel the effects of Delta 8?

You may feel the effects of Delta 8 immediately, but can take up to 90 minutes. Depending on the way you take Delta 8, the time to take effect may vary. Vape and tinctures will act much faster than capsules and  gummies. 

6. Will Delta 8 Show Up on a Drug Test?

Delta 8, even when derived from hemp, is a Tetrahydrocannabinol--or as most of us know it: THC. That means it will appear on a drug test in the same way Delta 9 would. This is the case for all versions of Delta 8, including tinctures, edibles, and cartridges or pods.

7. What does a Delta-8 high feel like?

Users report feeling relaxed, calm, clear-headed, giggly, sleepy, and hungry, among other feelings. With both a body and a head high, some users recommended starting with smaller doses, like a half or quarter gummy. 

8. How much Delta-8 should I take?

The answer to this question is heavily based on your own experience and tolerance. If you're new to Delta-8 THC, or just nervous about taking too much, we highly recommend starting with a half dose (about 12.5 mg) or a quarter dose (about 6.25 mg). This will allow you to evaluate the unique effects for your body and adjust your dosing accordingly over time. 

9. Is Delta-8 THC safe? 

Yes, Delta-8 THC is safe, though every user is different. Scientists are still studying the effects of cannabinoids. There is very little research available. However, at this time, no research has shown that there are overly negative or unsafe side effects from Delta 8 or any hemp product.

10. Is Delta 8 right for me?

Delta 8 might be right for you if you're looking for a different kind of high experience than Delta 9. If you want the high, but not the paranoia or anxiety, you might want to try Delta-8 THC.
