What is D8?  

Delta-8 THC (D8 from here on) is a minor cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. It shares many characteristics with its better-known cousin, Delta-9 THC – let’s just call it THC moving forward.

D8 is a naturally occurring cannabinoid, however unlike THC, it is found in significantly lower concentrations in the cannabis plant. To get you the goods, producers start with hemp derived CBD Isolate. To pump up the volume on D8’s availability, the CBD Isolate is processed with a food grade aid that converts it into D8.

This conversion process is nothing new and already used to extract minor cannabinoids. Have you heard of CBN? Hot tip… it’s made in a similar way.

D8 and the Endocannabinoid System

D8 is a psychotropic and will get you high. Like THC, D8 tunes into the CB1 receptors of your endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is hyper-important for regulating how your body responds to different inputs (immune function, mood, hunger, sleep, etc.) and the CB1 receptor is tied into the central nervous system. When you introduce D8 or THC to the CB1 – it gets the party started.

While the result is similar, D8 doesn’t bond as strongly as THC with the CB1 receptors. But that’s not a bad thing. D8 gives you the familiar ‘high’ without the anxiety or paranoia.

D8: what can you expect?

It’s easy: D8 contains THC. THC gets you high.

D8 is riding switch with your high. Same, same, but different.

D8 users have noted they experience a more stimulating, energetic result, while still enjoying significant euphoria and relaxation. Best part is the heightened alertness and none of the paranoia or anxiety that commonly accompany THC.

Whether you’re a legacy or new consumer, carve out some time to get to know D8. We recommend starting low and going slow. And while some might say D8 doesn’t hit as hard as THC, the consumption method (inhalation or ingestion) plays a role in how your body will react.  

When consuming edibles, emulsions also play a role in the outcome of your D8 experience.
