There is booming demand for delta-8. The new darling of the cannabis industry produces a high that is similar to marijuana, only it’s not as strong. And, it is legal in most states as long as it comes from the hemp plant which is a species of cannabis.

TerraSol Dispensary is a premier Wisconsin hemp dispensary, selling a vast array of delta-8 products. We are also certified educators in the hemp field and are committed to providing our customers with a clear understanding of the products we sell.

What Makes the Difference in Delta-8?

When you see the official title for marijuana, which is delta 9, you will realize that it is closely related to delta-8. Both are derivatives of the cannabis plant and both contain THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol. This is the  naturally occurring chemical that gets you “high”. But the THC in delta-8 is slightly different. It is not as potent as the THC in marijuana, and is considered legal under federal law. Most states are ok with this, but not all.

As a result of the 2018 farm bill, delta-8 is federally legal, if it comes naturally from hemp and contains less than 0.3% THC. However, some states are regulating or outright banning its sale and use.

Most of the controversy surrounds a lack of regulation when it comes to the manufacture of delta-8 products. Delta-8 is sold in a vast array of locations, from dispensaries to gas stations. Without regulation, there is some concern about safety. Still, delta-8 remains legal in 30 states, shown here, and is known for benefits beyond its euphoric effects.

The Health Benefits

Delta-8, coming from the cannabis plant, is considered a cannabinoid and this is a good thing. Derivatives of the cannabis plant are found to have therapeutic value in treating many health conditions. In fact, cannabinoids are a naturally occurring compound in the human body and help to keep our systems healthy and balanced. 

We know that delta-8 promotes a relaxed state of mind. Additionally, the use of delta-8 points to health benefits that may include:

  • Less anxiety
  • Less pain
  • Better appetite
  • Improved sleep
  • Better Digestion
  • Less nausea
  • Brain health

Delta-8 Products Come in Many Forms

Eat it, drink it, take a tincture under your tongue. Vape it, chew it, or roll it on. Delta-8 is available in a myriad of popular products sold in stores and online. You can have it for breakfast in a cereal bar, carry a delta-8 drink mix in your backpack, or rub it in as a salve. The effects of the THC will vary between products and how it is absorbed by your body.
