Ready to experience cosmic legal cannabis with some incredible edibles? You’re in the right place! If you’re new to delta-8 products or THC in general, you might be wondering what to expect for your first date with delta-8. For those who have already experienced traditional delta 9 THC during previous space voyages, you can expect a similar feeling with delta-8 edibles. That being said, delta-8 THC is considered milder than delta 9 THC by many, but with similar uplifting and euphoric effects. If you’re interested in learning more about this chill cannabinoid and its effects, just read below to get a feel for dank delta-8.
What Is Delta 8?
Delta-8 THC is a super popular cannabinoid derived from the cannabis plant. In the case of our products, it’s derived from the legal cannabis hemp plant. Hemp and products made from hemp became federally legal (within certain parameters) with the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill. Delta-8 is a recreational compound that has psychoactive and intoxicating effects (teehee). As a side note: Not all cannabinoids from hemp have psychoactive effects. CBD, or cannabidiol, has many wellness and health benefits and, unlike delta-8, it will not impair you. CBD can be taken daily in the form of CBD oil, CBD edibles, and more. But back to delta-8 THC, this little cannabinoid from hemp is a low-key (and maybe high-key, for some) powerhouse. We love to experience this little legal cannabis compound on its own with vape pens, THC prerolls, and edibles, or combined with other cannabinoids, like delta-9 THC, delta-10 THC, HHC, and THC-P for next-level THC products.
A Delta Dance Battle: Delta 8 vs Delta 9 THC
Let’s compare two of the most common cannabinoids with a little THC dance-off. While you revisit your “robot” and “worm” (don’t hurt your back), we’ll discuss THC. Delta-8 and delta 9 THC are two recreational compounds that can be derived from hemp and enjoyed with a variety of products. Some space cadets find that delta 9 THC creates a stronger feeling of euphoria compared to delta-8. Your experience will vary based on your THC tolerance and personal body chemistry, so start slow when trying delta-8 for the first time to see how delta-8 makes you feel.
Federally Legal & Fun?
The 2018 Farm Bill ended hemp prohibition and allowed the sale of certain hemp products (with a few stipulations). Delta-8 THC can be harvested from hemp, making it more legally available than say delta 9 THC products harvested from marijuana, which is not legal on a federal level.
Is Delta-8 Legal in All 50 States?
Even though the 2018 Farm Bill ended the prohibition of hemp and hemp products, some states have enacted additional bans on delta-8 THC products in their states (whomp, whomp, whomp). It’s important to check with local laws and regulations to know the legality of delta 8 and other cannabinoids in your area.
Will Delta 8 Use Result in a Positive Drug Test?
While delta-8 THC may be legal in your area, enjoying edibles and other products with delta-8 THC might result in a positive drug test result. Why? Well, testing hasn’t exactly kept up with the changing laws on legal cannabis. Most drug tests will be unable to determine if the THC it detects comes from hemp or marijuana, so if you have an upcoming drug test that you cannot fail, abstain from delta-8 products.

Side Effects: Do Delta-8 Gummies Make You Groggy the Next Day?
Generally, delta 8 THC gummies will only make you groggy the next day if you went a bit overboard the night before. To avoid unwanted side effects, we recommend taking less than the suggested dose when trying out a new THC product. That way, the next time you take it, you can add or subtract how much you enjoy to customize your THC experience!
Can You Take Delta-8 Every Day?
Since delta 8 THC is a psychotropic cannabinoid, you should never consume any THC or delta-8 products and then drive or use heavy machinery. So, it may be tricky for most of us normies to fit delta 8 THC into our daily schedules safely. That being said, if you’re living that chauffeur-having, sleep-in till 11 a.m. every day lifestyle, have at it!
