What Is Delta 8 THC?
Delta 8 THC is a powerful cannabinoid native to the cannabis flower. Delta-8-THC is an isomer of CBD, which is a derivative of hemp and CBD, a cannabinoid found in hemp, and is found in our products with less than 0.3% Delta-9-THC. In other words, Delta 8 THC is sort of a middle ground between hemp, CBD and THC-Delta-9.
According to The National Cancer Institute, Delta-8 THC is defined as "an analogue of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) with antiemetic, anxiolytic, appetite-stimulating, analgesic, and neuroprotective properties." They also stated that "this agent exhibits a lower psychotropic potency than Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-9-THC), the primary form of THC found in cannabis."
What Are Terpenes? Which Terpenes Are Used In Your Delta-8 Products?
According to Leafly, terpenes are defined as, "aromatic oils that color cannabis varieties with distinctive flavors like citrus, berry, mint, and pine" and they are secreted in the same glands that produce cannabinoids like THC and CBD.
Terpenes were initially developed by plants for the adaptive purpose of repelling pests and predators. There are over 100 terpenes found in the cannabis plant and every strain of the cannabis plant contains a "unique terpene type and composition". Nowadays, terpenes are used to create scents, flavors and, occasionally, different feelings or sensations.
