Again, it’s important to note that very little research has been done on delta-8. We don’t know much about how strong its effects are, and how it affects the body. As with any cannabis product, the chemical profile of the cannabis, your body’s chemistry, your tolerance level, your set and setting, and the amount you take all affect how you will feel.
Delta-8 currently exists in a legal gray area.
Currently, the legality of delta-8 is hazy. It can be extracted from either hemp or cannabis. Because of the 2018 farm bill, hemp can be legally grown and used for extractions all over the United States, making delta-8 legal in states where delta-9 THC is illegal—sometimes.
How to dose delta-8
Leafly correspondent Marissa Wenzke investigated the safety factor of delta-8 THC products. The experts she consulted suggested the main risk factor could come from untested, unlicensed delta-8 THC vape cartridges purchased on the unregulated market.
The 2018 farm bill, a federal act passed by Congress, legalized hemp in the United States. That act defines hemp as: “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 0.3 percent.” This language makes delta-8 legal, because it does not contain any delta-9 THC.
Delta-8, like delta-9 (regular THC), binds to the body’s endocannabinoid system, which causes you to feel high. Chemically, delta-8 and delta-9 are similar in that they both have a double bond in their structures. This double bond is thought to produce the intoxicating effects that make you feel high.
Additionally, in August 2020, the DEA released an Interim Final Rule (IFR), a document meant to update and confirm the differences between hemp and cannabis. That interim rule said: “All synthetically derived tetrahydrocannabinols remain Schedule I controlled substances,” which would make delta-8 illegal because it is a tetrahydrocannabinol that is extracted, or synthetically derived.

The latest advancement in the CBD market has been the introduction of Delta 8 THC. What makes Delta 8 THC so special is that it offers the same psychoactive effects of Delta 9 THC (What you’re commonly used to) but without the anxiety or impairment of functions. Most people who have tried both Delta 8 THC products and Delta 8 THC Products will prefer Delta 8 and describe it as “the right high for a productive person”.
Advancements in technology have allowed the extraction and isolation of the rare Delta 8 THC compound for commercial use such as in creating Delta 8 Vape Pens or Delta 8 Gummies. But that’s where the bleaching came in.
