What is Delta 8?
Delta 8 occurs in the cannabis plant. There are cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. On the molecular level, Delta 8 THC is similar to Delta-9 THC. Delta 9 THC is the active ingredient in cannabis, decriminalized in select states. Delta 8 is legal under the 2018 Omnibus Farm Bill and is made from legally grown US Hemp. But it is not just a mere analogue or shortcut. It is made from high-quality CBD and has a different use profile.
The cannabis plants from which CBD, and Delta 8, are manufactured are selectively bred to have a THC level of less than 0.3 percent by weight. Delta 9 is also present in small quantities, and even when extracted is often viewed as a lighter version THC. While it is derived from the same CBD you find on store shelves everywhere, Delta 8 is psychoactive and should be taken with care.
There are plenty of high-quality CBD products to choose from. Delta 8 is an exciting hemp based. But it is recommended that you measure your dose with care, especially when initiating.
Delta 8 should be kept away from minors and pets, although this is the best practice for CBD and any product intended for adult use.
Is Delta 8 Legal?
The Ninth Circuit Court ruled on Thursday, May 19, 2022 that products that contain the hemp-derived cannabinoid known as Delta 8 THC are completely legal under the 2018 Farm Bill and are also entitled to legal protections under federal law, including copyright and trademark protection. While it is legal federally, some states have restrictions or bans.
Delta 8 is currently barred for sale in 13 states. Alaska, Colorado, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Montana, New York, Nevada, North Dakota, Rhode Island, Vermont, Utah, and Washington. A few of these states may seem surprising, since cannabis itself has been legalized. A strange alliance of prohibitionists and dispensary investors surely benefit from restrictions on Delta 8.
According to legal experts, banning Delta 8 at the federal level is a now a forlorn hope unless lawmakers interfere. It would seem the federal government has rather more important issues to attend to but denying adults access to legal consumable products has been something of a fixation in recent years.

What is Delta 8?
The Delta 8 molecule closely resembles “regular” THC. Advocates argue is has similarities to THC but without paranoia and anxiety. A WebMD feature on Delta 8 explains, “Common THC side effects like paranoia, anxiety, and drowsiness are less potent.” Delta 8 is often described as THC light by adult customers.
Nicer Younger Sibling
A joint study by University of Buffalo and University of Michigan described Delta 8 as the “nicer younger sibling” of Delta 9 THC. As the largest study to date on Delta 8, these conclusions are backed by science rather the innuendo.
A survey of more than 500 participants’ experiences with Delta 8 involved comparisons with traditional Delta 9 THC (cannabis). The study’s authors concluded that Delta 8 THC is Delta 9’s “nicer younger sibling” because it similar effects but with fewer adverse reactions.
Largest Delta-8-THC Study
The study described above was published in the Journal of Cannabis Research and was co-authored by Jessica Kruger, PhD, a clinical assistant professor of community health and health behavior at the University of Buffalo’s School of Public Health and Health Professions.
According to Jessica Kruger:
“Because this is one of the first studies of its kind on delta-8-THC and so many states have changed their legislation, we wanted to really explore what people felt as they were using it compared to delta-9-THC. We found that people who are utilizing delta-8-THC feel fewer negative side effects, and they are using it in modalities that are safer, like vaping or edibles or using topically.”
Research into Delta 8 is relatively new, and the studies arrive at a time that more states are legalizing cannabis for recreational and medicinal use, while prohibiting Delta 8. Of the states that have banned Delta 8, six allow recreational use of cannabis, 10 allow medical use and three have decriminalized recreational use.
This is counterintuitive according study co-author Daniel J. Krueger. “It’s paradoxical that different states and municipalities are opening up to delta-9, it’s becoming more available and increasingly legalized, and yet they’re putting the brakes on delta-8, even though it seems to have a better profile in terms of its effects. It’s almost like the opposite of what you would do if you were informed of the evidence."
Even with the reputation as a milder product, first time and experienced users should still take care and monitor their intake. Delta 8 is a product for adults.
