Frequently Asked Questions
DELTA 8 THC
What is Delta 8, and How’s it Different from Delta 9 THC?
Delta 8 and delta 9 have the same chemical composition. The only difference is the location of the bond. As the name suggests, delta 8 bonds at the 8th carbon, and delta 9 connect to the 9th. The slight variance makes all the difference. Consumers report the slightly intoxicating compound relaxes them and improves their mood without making them drowsy or paranoid. Instead, many people say they’ve experienced a case of giggles from a few puffs of the cannabinoid. Additionally, most point out the clarity they have, which is different than delta-9 THC and CBD.
Delta 8 Effects, Uses, and Warnings
As mentioned, the THC-lite compound isn’t as intoxicating as delta 9, an advantage for anyone who experiences paranoia or extreme anxiety with cannabis. However, consumers that aren’t used to the intoxicating effects should still go slow with delta 8. In addition, people under 21 and pregnant or breastfeeding women shouldn’t use delta 8 products.
How to Use Delta 8 THC
Like all hemp and cannabis products, there are multiple ways to enjoy the compounds. You can smoke, vape, and eat Delta 8 THC. Additionally, it’s available as a tincture to apply under the tongue. The significant difference between these methods is how long it takes to work and the duration. Choose to smoke or vape the phytocannabinoid for the fastest response. A few puffs will put you on a whole new level. Keep in mind that it has a short duration of 60 to 90 minutes. For a more extended period, try the tincture. It works in less than 20 minutes and lasts for 4 to 6 hours. Do you like CBD but wish it had more kick? Have you tried delta 9 THC and found it overpowering? Now there’s an alternative to both these problems with legal hemp extracts. Delta 8 is the compound in the middle that’s slightly intoxicating but not too strong.

DELTA 10 THC
What is Delta 10 THC
Delta-10 THC is not just one of the hundreds of cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant – it is a truly special hemp strain. Unlike Delta-9 (the known illicit compound that makes you high, euphoric) which exists in abundant amounts in the hemp flower, appears in such trace amounts and it generally hard to extract and isolate. Although we don’t know how Delta 10 works on the body, it is likely that it interacts with CB1 receptor of the endocannabinoid system of the brain just like Delta 8 and Delta 9 do. But does this translate into superior potency? Well, Delta 10 certainly has a potent psychoactive effect which is actually distinct from the high one would get from Delta 8 or Delta 9 THC products. For the post part the psychoactive effects of Delta 10 are similar to Delta 9 Sativa Strains while Delta 8 is similar to the Delta 9 Indica. Because of this structural similarity between the compounds, be mindful that urinalysis (urine test) will pick up Delta 10 and might not discern it from illicit Delta 9 THC.
What is THC-O?
THC-O stands for tetrahydrocannabinol acetate. THC acetate ester can be synthesized from Delta 8 or Delta 9 THC. Following legal changes in the USA since around 2018, especially the legalisation of cannabis in an increasing number of states and the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill which eased restrictions on the cultivation of industrial hemp, THC-O-acetate has become increasingly available as a recreational drug, initially in the USA but subsequently in other countries also. “The effect of the THC-O acetate is more spiritual and psychedelic than that of the ordinary product. The most unique property of this material is that there is a delay of about thirty minutes before its effects are felt.” – D. Gold in his book Cannabis Alchemy.
What is HHC?
HHC is the most popular hemp-derived cannabinoid today. HHC offers a vast opportunity for HHC labs to produce top quality products that will stay with us for a long time. “HHC is one of the fastest growing products that gain a popularity on extremely fast pace,” said Murat Khalifa, founder of delta8store.com, one of the largest online stores of the cannabinoid. HHC or HydroxyHexahydroCannabinol is a naturally occurring phytocannabinoid that has rarely been identified as a trace component in cannabis sativa, and it can also be produced synthetically by hydrogenation of cannabis extracts. HHC was first synthesized in 1947 by Roger Adams using natural THC found in Cannabis sativa. Several research groups have successfully synthesized (+)-HHC and (-)-HHC using citronellal and olivetol, as well as other related compounds. While similar compounds have previously been identified in cannabis, hexahydrocannabinol itself has rarely been isolated from the plant. Today, mostly, we are talking about semi-synthetic cannabinoid derivative which resulted from early modifications to the structure of THC, in a search for the simplest compound that could still fulfill the binding requirements to produce cannabis-like activity. Since HHC is the part of the cannabinoids family, there are some useful information that we can share with you below.
