Here at Diamond CBD, we love Delta-8 THC. More than that, we love the freedom that comes with Delta-8 THC. Because thanks to the Farm Bill, which passed through Congress in 2018, you can now enjoy hemp-derived cannabinoids like CBD, Delta-8, and Delta-10 without interference from anyone. And that’s the way it should be. So whether you prefer Chill Plus Gummies or 10X vapes, the world is your oyster, as the old saying goes.
As many people have said over the past year, Delta-8 THC is the future of the hemp industry.
But, of course, progress is always a tricky thing. As Forbes online noted recently, there’s a big fight brewing over the future of Delta-8, as more and more stakeholders discuss whether or not it should remain as free and unregulated as it has been for the past year. However, until that happens, the one thing we know for sure is that you currently have the freedom to enjoy Delta-8 THC as you see fit.
“Back in April, the Drug Enforcement Administration added Delta-8 to its list of controlled substances, but thanks to the Farm Bill of 2018, which legalized industrial hemp and all hemp-derived cannabinoids, extracts and derivatives with no exceptions, there remains a good-faith argument that Delta-8 is currently legal in the states that have yet to pass laws against it,” wrote Forbes a few weeks ago.
While we can promise what the future holds, we can tell you to enjoy the present. And enjoying the present means enjoying as much Delta-8 THC as you can while it lasts. So here at Diamond CBD, we thought we’d take a moment to celebrate the future today. Because not only do we have the best selection of Delta-8 THC products available, but we also have the best customers on the planet — you.
So here’s to the future of the hemp industry and the future of Delta-8 THC. Here’s hoping we’ll all be enjoying this fantastic cannabinoid for years to come!
All About Delta-8 THC
What is it that makes Delta-8 THC so wonderful? Why has this hemp-derived cannabinoid taken the country by storm over the past year? Sure, it offers users one of the few legal psychotropic highs available on the market, but there’s so much more to it than that. Everyone loves to feel the buzz of Delta-8 THC, but everyone also enjoys the myriad benefits associated with this compound. With that in mind, we ask once again, what is Delta-8?
Delta-8 is a lot like its cousin Delta-9 THC. In fact, both compounds are cannabinoids that share a similar chemical structure. The big difference is in their potency, as Delta-9 is much more potent than Delta-8. That’s why you see so many articles calling Delta-8 “diet Delta-9.”
Delta-8 gives you a buzz, but that buzz is smooth and subtle. Used in moderation, it leaves you with a clear head that doesn’t keep you stuck on the couch. Moreover, there isn’t any anxiety or paranoia like you find with cannabis.
What does that mean for you exactly? It means you can take Delta-8 and still hold a conversation or complete your everyday tasks. Obviously, like with all psychotropic substances, you don’t want to go driving a car or operating construction machinery, but with Delta-8, you’re relatively of sound mind and body. Still, remember moderation is key.
Delta-8 THC Is Pure Hemp
The Delta-8 THC you purchase from Diamond CBD is extracted from hemp, which is why it’s legal. Conversely, Delta-9 comes from cannabis, making it prohibited in most states. Of course, we have the Farm Bill to thank for this. With the passing of the Farm Bill in 2018, it allowed Delta-8 THC to come into its own. On the other hand, hemp has no more than 0.3% THC (the Delta-9 kind). If it had any more than that, there would be problems (or so we’ve heard).
“The law is very clear. People call it a grey area; it’s not,” one Delta-8 seller told Forbes. “I get it, big cannabis companies are upset because of the competition, but at the same time they’re also a very elite group of special interests that have almost monopolized these states. Small entrepreneurs, who couldn’t participate in the industry because of all the expensive requirements, are also upset.”
Because Delta-8 THC comes from hemp and is legal, its future is uncertain. And because its future is uncertain (as crazy as the sentence is), it’s always best to buy as much as you can now.
The Benefits of Delta-8 THC
Of course, Delta-8 THC helps you “feel the buzz,” but there’s so much more to it. Delta-8 is a new compound, but it is incredibly safe. And ongoing research is teaching us more about it every day. No one has ever been harmed by all-natural, hemp-derived Delta-8 THC — no one has ever been harmed by hemp — they’ve only been helped.
(This is where we note that, as per Food and Drug Administration guidelines, we can’t promote any benefits of Delta-8. But there are a few things that users have relayed to us and across the internet that we can discuss.)
There are many user reports about Delta-8 THC. When it comes to this fantastic cannabinoid, people say it makes them feel:
- And more.
There’s a body buzz associated with Delta-8 THC that many users report feeling as well. On the other hand, side effects are rare but can happen, especially when the compound is taken in excess. Most notably, this includes slight anxiety along with drowsiness and dry mouth.
The Future of Hemp Is Delta-8 THC
The future of hemp is here now, and it is Delta-8 THC. Whether or not local, state or federal governments decide to do anything to prohibit this compound remains to be seen. In the meantime, please do all you can to enjoy it. Because at the end of the day, no one can stop you from feeling the buzz.
Products like Chill Plus Delta- Force Squares and Liquid Gold Vape Cartridges, along with 10X Vape Cartridges, should do the trick. Chill Plus Delta-8 THC gummies are super buzz-worthy, and Delta-8 Bites are great edibles for a buzz on the go. And the best way to feel the buzz is with Diamond CBD.
