A Brief Guide to Taking Delta 8

The buzz keeps getting hotter when it comes to Delta-8 THC products, especially those made right here at Diamond CBD. Now that we’ve added new products such as 10X and Delta-8 Bites, things are becoming even buzzier, if we can use a little pun. Why is that? Well, it’s because everyone loves this all-new, novel cannabinoid that gives them an utterly legal high. Not to mention, everyone loves the other benefits too!

Delta-8 is absolutely amazing!

Delta-8 is the latest hemp-derived cannabinoid to hit the market, and it’s the greatest thing since CBD. Dare we say it may even be more popular than CBD thanks to… well, thanks to the buzz!

This leads us to a fundamental question. What is it that makes Delta-8 THC so unique? Why have these all-natural, hemp-derived products taken the community by storm? Is it just the buzz? The benefits? Or is it something more?

You’re in luck because we’re here to tell you everything you’ve ever wanted to know about Delta-8.

In fact, we’re going to start from the top. That means we’re going to teach you some science, so grab your notebooks. For example, did you know that Delta-8 is one of the four major cannabinoids found in the hemp plant? That’s right, hemp has four major cannabinoids, and they include:

  • THC
  • CBD
  • cannabinol
  • Delta-8

We’ve noted it before, but there are actually over 100 cannabinoids in total found in hemp. It’s not found in huge quantities, which is why Delta-8 has only reached critical mass in the past couple of years. But what it lacks in size, so to speak, it makes up for in power. Because Delta-8 packs one heck of a punch. It won’t knock you out like, say, cannabis, but it will keep you high.

So, with that in mind, let’s learn a little bit more about everyone’s favorite cannabinoid and see why it’s grown in popularity so much over the past year.

Did You Know This About Delta-8?

Delta-8 is legal.

Let’s repeat that for the folks in the back. Delta-8 is legal. Even though it causes a psychotropic high, it is 100 percent legal. Of course, that could change at any moment. But how is this possible? How could something so… buzzy be legal? After all, everything else that causes a psychotropic high isn’t. To understand that, you have to go all the way back in time to 2018.

Back then, Congress passed what’s come to be known as the Farm Bill. Most legislators were hoping to make hemp legal as a way to replace dying tobacco crops. What they didn’t realize is that they were opening the door to so much more. Not only did they legalize hemp, they finally legalized CBD for good (and it’s about time), and they legalized a new and novel cannabinoid called Delta-8 THC.

So what does this mean for you?

First, it means that all of your favorite CBD products are now and forever will be legal. CBD oil, CBD creams, CBD edibles, and more. That debate is over. But it also means that you can go shopping for products with a bit more of an edge… products with Delta-8 THC.

“But I’ve heard that Delta-8 is illegal?”

What you’ve actually heard is that Delta-8 cultivated from cannabis is illegal. But your new favorite cannabinoid can be cultivated from both hemp and cannabis. Here’s what we wrote in a recent blog post: “At the federal level, as we all know, cannabis is illegal. On the other hand, hemp is legal. What does this mean for you? It means that Delta-8 cultivated from hemp is perfectly fine and Delta-8 cultivated from cannabis is… not. The thing is, Delta-8 is Delta-8. It’s the same compound no matter from which plant it is cultivated. We know that. You know that. Everyone except the politicians in Washington seem to know that.”

Does that make sense? Well, even if it doesn’t, here’s all you need to remember: Delta-8 THC is legal,

So whether you prefer Delta-8 Shrooms, Chill Plus Delta-Force Squares, or Liquid Gold Delta-8 Vape Additive, you can enjoy it with the knowledge and the freedom that no one will bother you — at least for now because the government can change its mind at any time.

How Does Delta-8 THC Work (For Me)?

Delta-8 THC interacts with your endocannabinoid system in much the same way that CBD does. In fact, we like to say that it’s a cross between THC and CBD because it’s smooth and subtle but with an extra kick that gets you moving. It has all of the benefits you want from THC wrapped up in a novel, new cannabinoid. But you can still finish your day’s tasks without feeling too spent.

Delta-8 THC gives you an uplifting buzz that allows you to keep a clear head, giving you the ability to stay calm and collected.

How does it work? Like many cannabinoids, Delta-8 will bind to different receptors, such as the CB1 receptor. But it does so differently than something like THC. So whereas THC hits you like a truck, Delta-8 comes on much lighter, giving you a much more streamlined experience.

For example, many people with issues such as anxiety don’t like to use THC products because it can exacerbate their issues. Anecdotal reports show that Delta-8 doesn’t have that problem. However, we caution that everyone is different and does react to each cannabinoid in their own unique way.

We’ve also found that Delta-8 THC might help enhance the entourage effect as well. For those not in the know, the entourage effect occurs when a combination of cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and more work together synergistically to give you a full-body high. Delta-8 can really make the entourage effect something special.

That’s why we continue to introduce new and innovative Delta-8 products onto the market at a rapid pace because we understand that you want an experience that matches your unique needs.

How so? Well, for example, if you vape or inhale Delta-8, you can experience the buzz relatively quickly. Conversely, using a sublingual mix via Delta-8 oil may delay onset for 20 minutes or more. Delta-8 edibles will take the longest to take effect but will also last the longest.

However you choose to try Delta-8, you can rest assured that you will be enjoying a completely legal buzz that will take you to new heights. So try some Delta-8 today and tell us what you think!
