Is Delta 8 Legit and Safe to Consume?
So you’re curious about trying Delta 8 THC. Congrats! You’re in for a real therapeutic treat.
But we get it… You’re not 100% sure if you even understand what Delta 8 THC is, let alone if it’s a legit cannabinoid that’s safe to consume.
Here’s the good news… Delta 8 THC is 100% a legit, legal cannabinoid! And as for its safety profile, multiple studies have shown it to hold tremendous medicinal properties for the human body. So, yes… High quality, pure Delta 8 THC is safe to consume [¹].
There’s just one problem: Not all Delta 8 is created equal!
It seems this relatively new cannabinoid is now facing the same hurdles and obstacles that CBD once faced when it first came onto the scene. Wait, who are we kidding? The CBD market is still facing some bumps in the road, but now at least they’re minor compared to what they used to be.
However, since Delta 8 THC is a newer and rather unique cannabinoid, it’s facing quite a few hiccups. Which means, there are a few things you need to be on the lookout for when it comes to safely consuming Delta 8 THC.
But first, let’s do a quick recap…
What is Delta 8 THC?
Delta 8 is a very rare cannabinoid. In fact, it only exists in the cannabis plant (which includes both marijuana and hemp) in small concentrations of 1% or less. This may explain why cultivators and hemp brands feel like they’ve won the lottery when they get their hands on some Delta 8 [²].
Is Delta 8 THC Safe?
Yes! Delta 8 THC is a very therapeutic cannabinoid. Researchers have conducted a few studies regarding its pain-relieving properties and anti-nausea capabilities. And let’s just say, the results of those studies were groundbreaking [¹,⁴,⁵].
One of the studies involved young children. That’s right, scientists actually gave children Delta 8 THC to see if it would help relieve their severe nausea and vomiting from intense chemotherapy treatments. And guess what? It did! Which means this cannabinoid is far more subtle than its more intense cousin, Delta 9 [³].
This may explain why so many CBD advocates are welcoming high quality Delta 8 THC with open arms.
But does this mean you can buy just any ol’ Delta 8 product and receive those medicinal benefits? Read on to find out…
Where is Delta 8 available?
Delta 8 is available online, in head shops, and in gas stations. But we highly recommend that you steer clear from buying Delta 8 from head shops and gas stations altogether, as they’re not always carrying the most legit, safe Delta 8 products.
You see, while pure, hemp-derived Delta 8 THC is safe to consume, not every Delta 8 THC brand is taking the steps to create high quality Delta 8 THC products.
Remember, it takes a lot of money to extract Delta 8 from hemp. It takes even more money to then test that Delta 8 THC for its purity and potency.
Where can I buy Delta 8?
The best place to buy high quality Delta 8 THC is from reputable online Delta 8 brands that value total transparency, third party testing, and have an outstanding brand reputation.
