As the popularity of hemp-derived CBD products continues to grow, so does interest in a lesser-known cannabinoid called delta-8 THC. While many have heard about delta-9 THC, the psychoactive compound found in marijuana, few know what delta 8 is all about – or even if it’s legal. That’s why Exhale CBD has put together this helpful guide on the top ten myths and facts related to exhale cbd products and other products made with this increasingly popular cannabinoid.
Myth #1: Delta 8 Is Just Another Name for Marijuana
This couldn’t be further from the truth! Delta 8 is an entirely separate cannabinoid from delta 9 (the psychoactive compound found in marijuana). Both are hemp derivatives, but delta 9 contains much higher levels of THC. This means that while delta 9 can get you high, consuming delta 8 won’t produce any psychotropic effect.
Fact #1: You Can Experience Anxiety Relief with Delta 8 Gummies
Delta 8 has been studied as a potential treatment for anxiety due to its calming properties and ability to reduce user stress levels. In some studies involving rodents, researchers found that animals given doses of Delta 8 experienced significantly lower anxiety levels than those not administered the cannabinoid. As always, consult your doctor before taking any supplements or medications for anxiety relief.
Myth #2: All Hemp Derived Products Contain Delta 8
Not all hemp-derived products contain Delta-8; it is only present in trace amounts in natural hemp due to its rarity within the plant itself. However, manufacturers like Exhale CBD have developed specialized extraction techniques that allow them to extract larger quantities of this rare cannabinoid from hemp plants without altering their chemical structure – which makes it possible for these compounds to be used in new kinds of products like gummies, tinctures and vape oils.
Fact #2: You Can Enjoy Potent Entourage Effects With Delta 8 Products
An entourage effect occurs when multiple cannabinoids work together synergistically in order to produce a greater effect than each one would separately. Because Exhale CBD’s collection includes full spectrum distillates containing both CBD and delta-8 THC combined with terpenes like linalool and myrcene , customers can enjoy potent entourage effects without experiencing any psychoactive highs associated with traditional marijuana products.
Myth #3: Consuming Too Much Delta-8 Will Make You High
Since there is no more than 0.3% Δ9THC present within our distillates – far less than what’s required for a person to experience a “high” – consumers don’t need to worry about feeling too much after ingesting our products containing both Δ8THC & Δ9THC. The amount required for someone feeling high isn’t present in these formulations!
Fact #3: There Are Many Ways To Consume These Products
Customers looking for different ways to consume their favourite cannabinoids now have access to multiple product types, including tinctures, edibles, pre-rolls, vape cartridges, waxes, concentrates, shatter and more! Whether you prefer to vape or dab your way into relaxation mode, Exhale CBD offers all sorts of ways for customers to find their perfect dose without having to worry about getting too high on Δ9THC.
Myth #4: Cannabis-derived products are illegal everywhere
Although cannabis-derived products are federally illegal (with limited exceptions), many states across America have passed laws legalising certain forms for medical or recreational use depending on where you live – including states like Ohio, Illinois, Michigan & California among others! When shopping online make sure to check restrictions based on location before making purchases as well as keeping up to date with state regulations regarding use/possession limits.
Fact #4: Different strains have different effects
Just as different strains offer different flavour profiles when smoking flowers, different strain profiles can create unique experiences when consuming edibles or concentrates! Certain strains may have higher concentrations of either CBG/CBC/CBDA while others will focus primarily on δ9ΔθCΔ/Δ8THC combinations creating altered results when consumed. Be sure to consider the genetic lineage when selecting strains to ensure the desired effects are achieved every time!
Myth #5 : All hemp-derived products have psychoactive effects
No matter how much cannabis-derived product is ingested, it will never cause any type of psychosis because there is simply not enough Δ9THC present to achieve this type of reaction in the body. Unless specifically noted otherwise, all hemp-derived extracts sold through exhale cbd contain less than 0.3% total Δ9THC meaning they are completely safe and non-psychotropic regardless of quantity taken!
