Before I tell you exactly what is Delta 8 THC, Delta 8 THCyou probably want to know if it's legal or not. Federally, THC in all forms is NOT legal. This is because, even though it's derived via Hemp and is chemically similar to Marijuana, it is still technically THC.

However individual states will vary, and their laws will constantly change. However, if Cannabis is legal in a state, there's a good chance that Delta 8 THC is also legal. In some cases, you will be able to find it at gas stations, smoke shops, or truck stops. Depending on the wording of the law legalizing Marijuana in your given state, will depend on whether it is legal or not. For example, of Arizona and Nevada where Cannabis is legal, Delta 8 THC is currently legal in Nevada, but not in Arizona. Before purchasing, you should check to see if it is legal or not within your state.

What is Delta 8 THC?

Delta 8 THC is a synthetic derived cannabinoid within Hemp that is one molecule off from the THC in Marijuana. Unlike Marijuana, it is abnormally low in hemp, and must be harvested in large quantities to extract enough THC to get high. The process involves using acids among other processes to gather the Delta 8 THC.

The high gained is described as a bit of euphoria. Since there is no federal/state standards, you may get different results from different retailers. This means it might get you high, it might not, and there is also a chance that it is not in fact Delta 8, but rather Delta 9 from Marijuana. 

To add to this, it still shows up on a drug test as Marijuana, and as such you will FAIL a drug test, if you consume it. If you are in a job or are seeking a job which you expect to need to take a drug test to be hired, avoid taking it.

Possible Scams

Oooh this is a doozy. You probably thought that if they were marketing it as Delta 8, then it must be real, right? Sorry, but you are in for a rude awakening.

First, I will say it again, there is no guarantee you will get Delta 8, it might just be a ploy for you to buy Marijuana's Delta 9 - tax free.  Since Delta 8 THC is synthetically derived, any hemp leaf that you buy with Delta 8 in the name, is a scam. Delta 8 does not occur naturally in high enough quantities to be considered smokable in plant form.

I'd like to say it stops there, but you can find a company that purportedly sprays hemp leaves with Delta 8. That's also a scam, since it's an isolate, that means its actually a powder. The best way to consume Delta 8 THC, is in a gummy or vape.

The easiest ways to tell if the site you are looking at to buy is legit, will be twofold. Check to see if they sell any smokable hemp with Delta 8 in the name. It is not something derived naturally from the flower or leaf of a hemp plant. Next, check if they can ship it to Arizona. If there are no restrictions, then its likely a scam. If there's one scam in the site, we can assume the whole site is likely a scam. As a final precaution, you should also be able to request lab results.

Delta 8 THC Review

Personally I do not like a THC high that I get from Marijuana. I love THC for its euphoria, yet pain relief is not present. This is one of the biggest reasons, that I use Kratom, instead of THC. Kratom is a great pain reliever, without a Euphoric state.

In either case, I placed an order for Delta 8 THC. Once I receive my order, I will be able to give you my personal review of its effects. If I enjoy it, I will be sure to link it to you.
