Everything You Wanted to Know About Delta 8
Most people are under the assumption that all cannabis is the same, but that’s not the case. Marijuana or the Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) cannabinoid are managed through state medical and recreational cannabis programs while hemp is managed at the federal level. The federally legal hemp plant produces many beneficial cannabinoids such as CBD, CBN, CBG, CBV, and hundreds of others. A newcomer to the list is Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol which is produced naturally in low plant percentages or isolated through an extraction process. While Delta-9 and Delta-8 have a similar psychoactive effect, Delta-8 is known to be less intense. At Urban Daze, we’re proud to offer a variety of Delta-8 products.

What Is Delta 8?
As mentioned above, the Delta-8 isomer is similar to the Delta-9 isomer but the molecular structure is different as Delta-8 has a double carbon bond in the 8th position which makes it less potent. Both isomers deliver the “high” feeling of relaxation and euphoria but Delta-8 is known to have less anxiety or paranoia.
Is It Legal?
Delta-8 is federally legal based on the hemp definition as defined by the Cannabis sativa L plant including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than three-tenths of one percent (0.3%) on a dry weight basis. Even though the federal hemp definition defines the origin and process, certain states have implemented Delta-8 bans or have included the cannabinoid into state sponsored marijuana programs. Please check your state regulations to ensure compliance to use or purchase Delta-8 products.
Additionally, prior to purchasing or consuming any cannabis product be sure to review the certified lab report to ensure compliance. All Urban Daze products include a QR code on the package that links to a Certificate of Analysis (COA) on www.urbandazehemp.com.
Exploring the Benefits
When purchased legally, there are many benefits that one could experience from Delta-8 THC products. As mentioned earlier, Delta-8 is very similar to Delta-9, as it produces the same psychoactive feeling of euphoria, relaxation, and potentially pain relief when consumed with just a milder effect. Urban Daze believes Delta-8 SHOULD NOT BE CONSUMED OR POSSESSED BY ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 21 as this product may cause psychoactive effects.
