Delta 8 THC is a naturally occurring chemical compound known as a cannabinoid. There are more than 100 cannabinoids found in cannabis plants. You may be more familiar with Delta 9 THC – the predominant cannabinoid found in Marijuana plants that’s responsible for causing the psychoactive effect known as feeling “high.” Delta 8 and Delta 9 are similar but different. Delta 8 can cause some psychoactive effects but nothing as intense as those caused by Delta 9 THC. All Hemp Bombs Plus Delta 8 is derived from Hemp plants, not Marijuana plants. By using only Hemp-derived Delta 8, containing less than 0.3% Delta 9, all Hemp Bombs Plus Delta 8 products are considered federally legal under the 2018 Farm Bill.
How much THC is in Delta 8?
First, you need to understand that Delta 8 is a form of THC. Delta 8 is one of the many cannabinoids (chemical compounds) found in cannabis plants. Second, you’re likely thinking of “THC” as Delta 9 THC – the cannabinoid typically associated with the psychoactive effect of feeling “high.” In that case, all Hemp Bombs Plus Delta 8 products contain less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC. We lab test each of our products, both in house and through a third-party lab, to ensure we keep this low level of Delta 9 THC. All Hemp Bombs Plus Delta 8 products contain such a low level of Delta 9 to ensure they are compliant with the 2018 Farm Bill and therefore federally legal.
What does Delta 8 THC feel like?
Delta 8 THC can produce psychoactive effects that are similar to, but not as powerful as, those caused by Delta 9 THC. These effects could help you relax, reduce your stress and anxiety, facilitate a good night’s sleep, soothe mild discomfort, improve your appetite and much more depending on the serving size and your individual body composition. While Hemp Bombs Plus Delta 8 THC products can help you feel better, you should not drive or operate any machinery while using our products.
What does Delta 8 THC do?
Delta 8 THC can help improve your relaxation, mood, comfort, appetite and much more. Delta 8 is a cannabinoid and as such it interacts with your body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS). When any cannabinoid, such as CBD, Delta 9 or Delta 8, interacts with your ECS, it naturally locks in with the system’s receptors found throughout the body to trigger a variety of reactions. Different cannabinoids affect the ECS in different ways, but because your ECS helps manage your mood, pain level, appetite, energy, immune response and much more, cannabinoids like Delta 8 may help improve all those functions.
How long does Delta 8 THC stay in your system?
First, you can expect to feel the effects of a Hemp Bombs Plus Delta 8 product for several hours. Based on the amount you take and your individual body composition (age, weight, height, gender, etc.), you may feel the effects for a longer or shorter duration compared to another person. However, feeling the effects of Delta 8 for a few hours is very likely. Second, Delta 8 THC can “stay in your system” just as long as Delta 9 THC. Both Delta 8 and Delta 9 metabolize in similar ways, and Delta 8 metabolites may trigger a drug test looking for Delta 9.
