Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What is Delta-8 (D8 or D-8)?
Delta-8 THC (or Delta-8 for short) is a cannabinoid found in all cannabis plants including hemp. Our Delta-8 products are derived from 100% US-grown hemp and therefore are federally legal. Delta-8 THC and Delta-9 THC are similar differing due to their chemical structure. In common usage, reference to THC refers to Delta-9 THC and is the main cannabinoid responsible for the psychoactive effects or “high” users feel. Because Delta-8 THC is structurally different than Delta-9 THC, it is said by users that the experience is less intense than Delta-9 THC.
Is Delta-8 legal?
Our Delta-8 products are federally legal and compliant in accordance to the 2018 US Farm Bill Update which allows for Hemp CBD extraction and extraction-based products to be sold, provided that they are compliant with the requirements set. We are compliant because all products sold are derived from 100% US-grown hemp that contained less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC per dry weight basis and all of our products are third-party tested.
Even though it is federally legal, some states have banned the sale of it in certain states: AK, AZ, AR, CO, DE, ID, IA, KY, MS, MT, NV, NY, UT, RI, VT, WA. We do not sell to customers who reside in these states for legal reasons. We encourage you to do additional research on the rules and restrictions that apply to you in your place of residence even if Delta-8 is legal to possess in your state.
Will consuming Delta-8 THC fail a drug test?
Yes. Generally speaking, drug tests look for THC metabolites, which are a byproduct of THC generated by the body. These tests typically do not differentiate between metabolized Delta-8 THC and Delta-9 THC and therefore consuming Delta-8 THC will likely result in a positive drug test. If failing a drug test is detrimental to your occupation, do not use Delta-8 products.
What is Hexahydrocannabinol (HHC)?
Hexahydrocannabinol (HHC) is a cannabinoid found in all cannabis plants including hemp seeds and pollen. Our HHC products are derived from 100% US-grown hemp and therefore are federally legal. All HHC products sold are third-party tested for quality and safety. Since HHC is NOT a THC cannabinoid many states do not treat HHC under the same state-level regulations as other THC cannabinoids. We suggest that you check your local and state laws on legality of use and purchase of HHC products.
What is HHC-O?
HHC-O-Acetate (referred to as HHC-O for short) is a cannabinoid made in a process similar to THC-O except the starting cannabinoid is HHC rather than THC. By making an acetate version of HHC, the resulting HHC-O cannabinoid is more potent than standalone HHC. It is essentially a juiced up HHC and said to be even more similar to Delta-9 in its effects.
What is THC-P?
THC-P stands for Tetrahydrocannabiphorol and it exists in naturally in cannabis plants – albeit in very low concentrations. Using chromatography THC-P can be extracted from hemp and isolated. Studies so far appear to show that THC-P binds with the CB1 receptors 33 times more often than Delta-9 THC. Activation of the CB1 endocannabinoid receptors results in experiencing the psychoactive effects.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid (chemical compound) derived from the hemp plant. CBD is federally legal if it is derived from hemp that contains less than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content. THC is one of many cannabinoids, or chemicals found in the cannabis plant, and is the one that is primarily responsible for the “high” associated with cannabis. Therefore, taking CBD products will NOT result in psychoactive effects or get you high. CBD products have NOT been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and we must state that they are NOT intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. We encourage you to do your own research to best inform yourself about the use and effects of CBD products.
Will I get high from CBD?
No, you will not get high from the consumption or use of CBD or any CBD infused products such as oils, tincture, edible, etc. Our CBD products are federally legal and therefore contain less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC per dry weight basis. There are many resources online that can inform you of the effects of CBD.
What is the difference between THC and CBD?
CBD (Cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) are both found naturally in the marijuana plant. However, CBD itself does not make you high because it contains less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC per dry weight basis.
