Demystifying 7 Common Myths About Delta-8


Have you heard about Delta-8 THC? Sometimes referred to as Diet Delta-9 or Delta-9 Lite, Delta-8 is a relatively new form of THC that’s making waves within the cannabis market. While many people have already had tons of positive experiences with Delta-8, there are some myths that could be stopping others from trying it. Keep reading to learn about some of the common myths about Delta-8 and see if they hold any truth.


Myth 1: Delta-8 is the same as Delta-9

False. Delta-8 is not the same as Delta-9. Anecdotal evidence from users has many saying that Delta-8 is Delta-9’s “nicer, younger sibling,” but what does that mean? Delta-8 has a different structure than Delta-9 THC.  They also interact with the endocannabinoid systems differently and have unique potencies.

Myth 2: Delta-8 is the same as CBD

False. Delta-8 is not the same as CBD. Although both Delta-8 THC and CBD are hemp-derived products, they are quite different. CBD is derived from hemp leaves and the buds of cannabis plants. Delta-8, on the other hand is taken from the hemp flower and distilled with temperature and pressure fluctuations.

Myth 3: Delta-8 won’t get you high

False. It is a myth about Delta-8 that it won’t get you high. It will have psychoactive effects but to a lesser degree than Delta-9 THC. Delta-8 is designed to deliver a smoother, milder sense of euphoria and stimulation than Delta-9.

Myth 4: Delta-8 only comes as gummies

False. Delta-8 comes in many different forms, just like Delta-9 and CBD! Delta-8 THC products come as hemp flowers, pre-rolls, tinctures, oils, dab waxes, gummies, syrups, dab sauces, edibles, and more! Experimenting with Delta-8 in different forms is the best way to find out how it works best for you.

Myth 5: Delta-8 won’t show up on a drug test

Unclear, but Delta-8 will probably show up on a drug test. While additional research still needs to be done on Delta-8 THC, it is a myth that it won’t show up on a drug test. If you are concerned about testing positive, it’s probably best to abstain from any form of Delta-8 or Delta-9.

Myth 6: Delta-8 is illegal

Again, this one isn’t so clear-cut. Delta-8’s legality depends on the state in which you’re using it as well as how it was derived. Delta-8 THC derived from hemp is federally legal in the United States, and Delta-8 THC derived from cannabis is legal in states where cannabis is legal. Bottom line: do your research regarding your specific state’s laws and regulations as they relate to cannabis and THC.
