What are Cannabinoids?
Simply put, a cannabinoid is any compound produced by the cannabis plant that connects to the cannabinoid receptors in the brain and the body (CB1 & CB2). Cannabinoids include Cannabidiol (CBD) and Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) among others. The receptors in our body are collectively referred to as the Endocannabinoid System (the ECS). The ECS is present in all animals, including humans. These receptors are believed to provide many functions for both body and mind. Cannabinoids and their relationship to the ECS are still being studied and new potential benefits are being discovered regularly.
Currently the FDA prohibits making any claims that Cannabinoids, such as CBD, can be used to treat, cure or diagnose any disease. However, new studies are being conducted regularly and at current count approximately 115 naturally occurring cannabinoids have been discovered. Delta-9 THC is federally legal as long as it is derived from Hemp and does not exceed 0.3% on a dry weight basis. CBD products contain less than 0.3% of Delta-9 THC, thus paving the way for new research and development.
Our mission is to provide you with the purest, safest, and consistent federally legal cannabinoid products available, while also providing education on use and potential effectiveness.
What is Delta 8?
Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol (D8 THC) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid, present in small quantities in the cannabis plant. It is closely related to Delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol (D9 THC), the psychoactive cannabinoid that has been made famous by marijuana. The biggest difference between the two is that when D8 is derived from hemp (cannabis plants containing less than 0.3% D9) it complies with the federal regulations fostered by the 2018 Farm Bill. This bill legalized all cannabinoids derived from hemp except for D9, which is limited to a concentration of under .3% on a dry weight basis. D8 is very similar to D9 in effect and chemical composition but not the same cannabinoid. Therefore, it is not held to the 0.3% restriction that D9 is.
While D8 is federally legal it is highly recommended that it be used with caution due to the potential psychedelic effects. Please read our full disclaimer for more information.
Claims of benefits of any cannabinoid are currently prohibited by the FDA.
We believe that there are many potential benefits to this cannabinoid and recommend doing research to find out if D8 is right for you.
