Delta 8 THC - High Quality Hemp-Based Products from a Trustworthy CBD Brand

The hemp plant offers many potential benefits, some of which include pain relief, mood enhancement, energy, and relaxation. In the same way that hemp is versatile, so too are Delta 8 THC products. If you’re unfamiliar with Delta 8 (aka Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol) or hemp in general, let us introduce you to it so you can have a better experience.  

Delta 8 and the Cannabis Plant

Let’s start with the basics: what is cannabis? You may have heard of or seen the popular plant and wondered, is this where all CBD products come from? The answer is yes and no. Cannabis belongs to the family Cannabaceae, of which there is Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica. The two are differentiated primarily by their physical appearances and the effects they have when consumed.  

Cannabis goes by many names, some of which originated in various parts of India and Africa. Many products, such as CBD oil, smokable CBD, and CBD edibles, use the cannabis plant as a foundation for their creation. Hemp and Marijuana are the same species Cannabis Sativa L, which understandably accounts for much of the confusion. However Hemp is not marijuana and marijuana is not hemp. Another way to say it is that all Hemp is cannabis but not all cannabis is Hemp. Marijuana and hemp are different varieties of the same species and may look similar, but have completely different chemical compositions.

Hemp Cannabis contains primarily CBD and a minimal amount of THC (less than .3%), which may give those who partake a mild “high” feeling when they consume it. Cannabis plants contain about 100 active substances (cannabinoids), all of which are naturally occurring chemical compounds that bind with receptors throughout your body and have very low toxicity.

What are Delta 8 Products?

 Delta 8 THC products are derived from the Cannabis sativa plant in ways that can be used for both therapeutic and recreational purposes. Delta 8 THC is the only product that contains all six Delta 8 phytocannabinoids all in one compound. Products made with Delta 8 THC deliver effects similar to actual cannabis (ganja) and contain a psychoactive component that may leave people feeling mildly intoxicated.  

Delta 8 vs Delta 9 THC: What’s the Difference?

Although there are similarities between Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC, the two are not the same. Delta-9 THC is what most people refer to when they say THC. While both have psychoactive components that give off a “high” feeling, Delta 8 has a different chemical structure from Delta 9, which makes it milder than its counterpart. The structure of Delta 9 THC is very similar to the structure of neurotransmitters located in the brain, which is why the effects of Delta 9 THC are more pronounced. Its moderate potency has earned Delta 8 THC the nickname of “Diet Delta 9” or “Delta 9 Lite.” 

Most users say they find the two products similar, but have a less intense experience with Delta 8. Whereas Delta 9 is known for its immediate effects, Delta 8 is a smoother, softer ride, which makes it perfect for beginners.  

Before you start searching for deals for Delta 8 near me, let’s investigate some of the benefits of Delta 8 THC as well as potential side effects. 

How Will I Feel with Delta 8 THC?

Although to a lesser degree than Delta 9, Delta 8 THC can still give you a desired high feeling. More than feeling hazy and high, however, Delta 8 will probably leave you with a sense of calm and in a more relaxed, mellow state. Other feelings people experience with Delta 8 THC may include:

  • Less stress and anxiety
  • Hazy thinking
  • Temporary pain relief
  • Increased appetite
  • Increased libido
  • Slowed response time

Remember that everyone experiences the effects of Delta 8 THC differently depending on individual body chemistry and makeup. That’s why we suggest starting at a low dose and gradually increasing to reach your desired effect. 

What Side Effects Should I Expect From Black Tie CBD Delta 8 THC?

Studies show that, although rare, some people experience the following side effects when taking Delta 8 THC:

  • Tiredness
  • Dizziness
  • Changes in weight
  • Changes in appetite

We highly recommend seeking advice from a healthcare professional prior to using any hemp products, including Delta THC products. Please also note that certain THC products may not be compatible with certain medications (for example, steroids, antidepressants, and antihistamines) and may have contraindications for some health conditions, for example (i.e., pregnancy, nursing, etc.). Using any form of THC including delta 8 THC products may result in exacerbated side effects if used incorrectly or if other health conditions are of concern. 

Is it Legal to Purchase CBD Online? 

It is legal to buy CBD products online as long as the THC component does not exceed 0.3%. According to the US Farm Bill of 2018, however, each state may still have their own legality surrounding the matter, so it is imperative that you check with your state’s regulations and adhere to specific state laws. As of now, the use and sale of CBD is prohibited in 3 out of 50 US states - South Dakota, Wyoming, and Idaho. 

Please keep in mind that there is no specific legal documentation surrounding Delta 8 THC, so users must proceed with caution. The allowance of CBD does not directly apply to that of Delta 8 THC; furthermore, there may be regulations surrounding hemp dispensaries and the sale of hemp products. 

The safest way to ensure that the CBD products you are getting are legal for purchase is to go through a company that is legally compliant and provides 3rd party lab analysis like Black Tie CBD. Another consideration should be the quality of the products; always try to purchase from companies that use high-quality, organic, and natural products to avoid potentially negative side effects. 

Does Delta 8 THC Show Up on a Drug Test ? 

Yes, both Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC cannabinoids will likely show up on drug tests, which may make them unsuitable products if you are in a position that prohibits this. 

While there is no specific research on Delta 8 THC products’ detectability on drug tests, it can be assumed that using the products will yield a positive result on drug tests given that Delta 8 and Delta 9 have similar molecular structures, and the fact that modern drug tests tend to be rather sensitive. 

As a safety precaution, it is best to totally avoid using CBD with any THC component several days prior to a drug test just to be sure you pass.

Where Can I Get Delta 8 THC Products Online? 

Delta 8 THC products are available for sale at Black Tie CBD, making it easy and efficient to get the safe and reliable Delta 8 you’ve been looking for. As a reminder, there are no federal regulations specifically related to Delta 8 THC, so please use and purchase with caution. 

How Should I Use Delta 8 THC to Get the Most Benefits?

Follow these tips for using Delta 8 THC to get the most benefits from the products and ensure that you have an enjoyable experience: 

  1. Start with a low dose of Delta 8 THC and work your way up. We suggest that beginners (people who have never used CBD products with THC) start with CBD products with 0.3% THC or less to evaluate how your body reacts. If everything goes well, gradually increase until you get to the sweet spot.
  2. Follow the directions. Always make sure to follow the instructions on the packaging and never increase CBD/Delta 8 THC consumption beyond the recommended dosage.
  3. Be realistic with your expectations. Delta 8 THC products are not intended to get you high in the same way that Delta 9 THC might. Knowing that going in will help you have a more enjoyable experience.
  4. Experiment safely. Once you feel comfortable with full spectrum CBD products, then you may try  Delta 8 THC, additionally you may feel comfortable enough to try different flavors and variations. Always enjoy safely and in moderation.

    What Is Delta 8 THC?

    If you’ve found yourself asking, “What is Delta 8 THC?” you’ve come to the right place. Delta 8 THC, also known as Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol, is a psychoactive substance that comes from the Cannabis sativa plant. Delta 8 THC has  milder psychoactive and intoxicating effects than Delta 9 THC, but it is still important for users to be aware of its potential to impact them. Legally sold Delta 8 THC products contain less than 0.3% THC, which limits the extent of THC’s effect. 

    When compared to traditional CBD and Delta 9 THC products, Delta 8 THC products are relatively new to the market and therefore require more extensive research and legislation. The FDA has not evaluated or approved Delta 8 THC products for safe use and they may be marketed in ways that put public health at risk. Some concerns include variability in product labeling and product formulations as well as other terpene and cannabinoid content and concentrations of variable Delta 8 THC.

    Some people use Delta 8 THC for a variety of health conditions including nausea, vomiting, glaucoma, sleep issues, and more. It is important to note that the FDA has neither evaluated nor supported Delta 8 THC for these or other health conditions. 

    Most users experience a floating and uplifting state followed by a mellow calm and a relaxed state of mind when taking Delta 8 THC and using Delta 8 THC products. Delta 8 may be incorporated into several different forms including edibles, smokables, flowers, dab waxes, moon rocks, pre-rolls, and more. 

    Products containing Delta 8 THC should be stored away from pets and children.

    What is CBD?

    Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-intoxicating cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits but does not make people feel “stoned”

    What Is Hemp?

    The hemp plant and its extracts are often used for a wide range of conditions. What is hemp? Hemp or cannabis sativa is the same species of plant as cannabis. Unlike cannabis, hemp contains low concentrations of THC, under 0.3%.

    Both cannabis and hemp also contain cannabinoids like CBDV (cannabidivarin), CBD, CBG, cannabigerol, and others. The 2018 Farm Bill established the specific definition of hemp versus cannabis by restricting the content of THC in hemp to no more than 0.3%. Additionally, hemp seeds contain protein, fats, and other nutrients.

    Some people mistakenly confuse hemp with hemp agrimony, Canadian hemp, cannabidiol, or cannabis but they are not the same. The legality of hemp is a hotly contested topic within the US given the different forms of hemp that exist and state restrictions. The Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 legalized industrial hemp with no restrictions on sale, transport, or possession of hemp-derived products so long as they contain no more than 0.3% THC, as per section 10113 of the Farm Bill. 

    Hemp can be used to create both commercial and industrial products, including rope, textiles, clothing, shoes, fuel. Hemp has become an increasingly popular choice by many to address certain physical and neurological conditions including skin and stress issues, but factual evidence on the safety and efficacy of hemp for medicinal purposes is still up for debate. Individuals who choose to utilize hemp for medicinal or therapeutic purposes should always consult a medical professional prior to use.
