Delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as Δ8THC, is one of the many cannabinoids that occur in cannabis plants. Think of it as the younger brother of the more famous THC, the major psychoactive component of cannabis. Delta-8 THC is formed in the cannabis plant when delta-9 THC becomes oxidized. Δ8THC is found in very low concentrations (< 0.1%) in CBD hemp flower. However, it can be extracted or converted using other cannabinoids and made into a concentrated form for a variety of uses.

Does Delta 8 THC get you high?

According to some users, delta 8 can get you stoned. Other users report feeling little to nothing in terms of intoxication. Delta 8 is psychoactive, but its intoxicating qualities are not a given like with delta 9 THC. Delta-8 THC tends to react differently due to its slightly altered molecular structure. Many users have reported clear-headed, anxiolytic (anti-anxiety), and non-sedative effects. But everyone is different, and products and strengths vary, so always err on the side of caution.

Is Delta 8 THC legal?

The short answer to the question is that a substance that matches the definition of “hemp” is legal under the federal controlled substances laws. Delta 8 THC is measured federally legal if it is extracted from hemp containing below 0.3% delta-9-THC, according to the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018. So, the answer is, YES, if it is hemp-derived Delta 8. However, Delta 8 legal status can vary state to state as each stare has its individual regulations regarding the hemp plant. Tiki Island is pleased to provide our customers in the Atlanta area the benefits of Delta 8 THC as long as there is no question about its legal status. In states where this is a question, or an issue, we will not sell or ship Delta 8 THC products until the question has been resolved.
