What is Delta 8?
What is Delta-8 (D8 or ∆8) THC?
Delta-8 THC, a variation of THC, is a minor cannabinoid that can help potentiate the cannabis entourage effect when used in concert with other cannabinoids such as CBD, CBG, CBN, CBC, etc. D8 is found in cannabis (marijuana and hemp) in much lower quantities than Delta-9 THC. In larger amounts, D8 can produce a psychoactive effect like Delta-9, though at a lower intensity. We do not recommend operating machinery after using D8 products.
What are the effects of D8?
Like with any other cannabinoid, the effects of D8 can and will vary per person. Users have reported that D8 may help with mood, relaxation, anxiousness, sleep, pain, and nausea.
Does D8 show up on a drug test?
Yes, most likely. Because Delta-8 THC's metabolites are similar to Delta-9, most drug tests will be unable to differentiate. Any full spectrum product containing trace amounts of Delta-9 (lower than the 0.3% legal limit) also could potentially trigger a positive drug test.
Is Delta-8 legal?
D8 derived from hemp is legal at the federal level according to the 2018 Farm Bill. Certain states have made D8 illegal. At the time of this writing those states are Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Mississippi, Montana, Rhode Island, and Utah.
How much should I use?
While effects and benefits will vary person to person, we recommend starting with a small amount (one puff on a vape cartridge) and waiting 20-30 minutes before trying any more. This will help you establish a baseline of individual effect, which will guide you toward your desired effect.
Do you sell any Delta-8 Products?
Currently we sell the Botany Lemon Diesel vape cartridge, the Trifecta Relax vape cartridge, which is a well balanced cart that contains CBD, CBG, ∆8, CBN and CBC. For a stronger but less layered experience, also have Foundry's Delta 8 Gummies and Foundry's Delta 8 Cartridges.
