Delta-8 THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is one of the hundreds of natural cannabinoids found in hemp. It is similar to Delta-9 THC (many simply call it THC). Delta-8’s effects, however, aren’t as strong as regular THC. Delta 8 is a good option for those with low tolerances and people who want a mild experience. Delta 8 works in the same way as regular THC but has less brain fuzz and disorientation. It offers the same benefits as THC, but keeps users alert and functional.

 Delta 8 THC (THC) binds to receptors within your endocannabinoid system (ECS). Your body’s signaling network, the ECS, helps to maintain internal balance. Delta 8 binds specifically to CB1 & CB2 receptors which is why it can have such powerful effects.  

 

Although Delta 8 can give you a feeling of euphoria, it won’t cause you to experience the same effects as regular Delta-9 THC. Federally legal hemp products must contain no more than 0.3% Delta-9  THC. This means that there shouldn’t be any Delta 9 THC in any Delta-8 product that could cause severe intoxication.

The 2018 Farm Bill made hemp exempt from the list of controlled substances, making all hemp-derived products agricultural goods. Delta 8 can be considered one of these hemp products. The 2018 Farm Bill removed hemp from the controlled substances list, making it an agricultural good. As long as the Delta 9 THC content of a hemp product is 0.3% or less, Delta 8 is federally legal. Delta 8 contains no more than 0.3% Delta9 THC.

Delta 8 is banned in Alaska, Arizona and Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Maryland, Montana, Nevada, New York, Rhode Island and Utah. It is currently legal in all other states. However, this could change if the state legislatures decide that it should be considered a controlled substance. Delta 8 should be checked with your state laws before you take it. Laws regarding hemp and cannabis can change quickly.

It all depends on how you consume it, and how much is taken. Oral ingestion (edibles such as gummies) can work in 40 minutes to 2 hours. Inhalation can take as little as 90 seconds, just like with flower or vapes. If you drop the oil tincture under your tongue, it can be effective in five minutes. The effects last depending on how much Delta 8 THC you are taking. The effects of Delta 8 THC will last for the longest if you consume edibles like gummies. Inhaling the compound can prolong the effects for up to four hours. Sublingual application (oil under your tongue) can have effects lasting up to three hours.

 For those who are just starting out with Delta 8 THC, a very low dose is a good place to start. You can find the right dose for you by starting low and gradually increasing your dosage as you go. This will help you avoid side effects. Start slow and take it slow. The recommended dosage range for Delta 8 THC is 5-15mg. This is low enough to get your body to take Delta 8 THC, but strong enough to be able to comprehend how it affects you. There is little to no chance of side effects with this dosage range. For a D8 user with moderate tolerance, a standard dose could be between 10 and 50mg. Regular consumption of Delta 8 will increase your tolerance. This means that the more you consume Delta 8, the more you will need to increase your dose to achieve the desired effects. A single dose of Delta 8 is approximately 15mg to 45mg. You might consider increasing the dose if your tolerance has reached this level. Or, stop using Delta 8 for some time before starting again. This will reduce your body’s tolerance for the same effects at the same dose.

 Although it is certainly possible to take too much Delta 8, it will not be fatal. Negative side effects include dry mouth, eyes, nausea, nervousness and dizziness. These side effects are temporary and will disappear in a few hours. People with low tolerances are more likely to experience unwanted side effects from higher doses. You can combat this by starting with a shorter-lasting delivery method such as vaping. This is less likely to cause side effects than other methods. It is important to take only one dose daily and not mix Delta 8 with intoxicating substances such as alcohol or medications. Accidents can happen. You can wait for the discomfort to pass if you take too much Delta 8. You will be much better off taking a long nap and drinking water.

Delta-8 THC, a lesser-known THC, is a double bond isomer of delta-9 THC. Although it may not be as strong as delta-9 THC, delta-8 THC can still produce a high with additional therapeutic benefits. You should avoid any hemp-derived THC products if you have to pass drug tests.

There are three types of differences: Differences at the molecular level, availability differences and differences in the way we experience the highs.

  • Molecular Differences: A molecular level, Delta 9 THC has an additional double bond on its 9th carbon chain, while Delta-8 THC does not have a double bond. This difference is small, but it produces big results.
  • Availability: Delta- 8 THC is less common than Delta-9 THC in marijuana/cannabis plants – it has only been possible to isolate Delta-8 THC for broader public access through recent technological advances.
  • Experience: Delta-8 THC has been shown to produce a similar “high”, but with fewer side-effects. Delta-8 THC produces a less intense, gentler, more manageable high than Delta-9 THC. On a more practical level, the highs from Delta-8 THC are found to have less functionality-impairing effects.

The wild success of delta-8 THC as an alternative to delta 9 THC has led to other cannabinoids being sought by the cannabis industry to be competitive in the vast cannabis market. Hexahydrocannabinol is one of the most promising and recent cannabinoids, often shortened to HHC. HHC, a THC relative, has been well-known to science but was not discussed much by cannabis users until recently. HHC is a minor cannabis cannabinoid. It occurs naturally in cannabis but it’s too low to extract economically. HHC’s commercial production is still in its infancy. Many cannabinoids can easily be made into other cannabinoids through chemical modifications. Commercial HHC is produced from hemp-derived CBD. It can also be made from THC (delta 8 THC) and THC (10 THC). HHC isn’t known as THC, which gives it a major legal advantage over the other two.

The 2018 Farm Bill federally legalized hemp and all derivatives except for delta 9 THC (concentration greater than 0.3%). Technically, HHC isn’t THC so it shouldn’t be subject to federal scrutiny. Possibly.

HHC can be found in cannabis plants, but it is not the source of commercial HHC. This lab-produced product is made by hydrogenating cannabinoids from hemp under pressure using a catalyst such as palladium. The National Cannabis Industry Association calls the result a semi-synthetic cannabis compound.

This could indicate that HHC may be brought to the attention of Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Creo, a biotech company that specializes in cannabinoids, believes HHC falls under federal analog legislation. This law automatically classes analogs of Schedule 1 drugs the same as Schedule 1. HHC could see a short commercial boom if the DEA agrees.

States could also ban HHC. If HHC is popularized, and especially if this threatens the legal marijuana market, like we saw with delta 8 THC, this could be a possibility. HHC has not yet caught the attention of state legislators.

HHC is not likely to be broken down in the body the same way that THC. There is evidence that HHC does not metabolize to 11-hydroxy-THC. This is the substance that drug panels test for. However, this hasn’t yet been investigated and isn’t certain. No one has yet proven that HHC will not leave any evidence of drug use in your hair, urine, or blood. We recommend that you don’t use HHC if your employer is testing for drug use.
