Everything You Need to Know About Delta 8 in Kentucky

Kentucky, like many states in the U.S., has yet to legalize marijuana. However, like all states, it is legal to produce and/or sell hemp-derived products in the state because of the 2018 U.S. Farm Bill, passed by Congress. 

As a result, many Kentucky residents are flocking to stores such as Bourbon Country Cannabis to get hemp-derived Delta 8 products, for both the psychoactive effects and the wellness benefits. 

What Is Delta 8? 

The name Delta 8 comes from delta-8 tetrahydrocannbinol (AKA delta-8 THC), which is a compound that naturally occurs in cannabis plants. 

THC is the psychoactive compound in cannabis, meaning that the psychoactive effects of Delta 8 products will be similar to those of marijuana. 

Delta 8 Is Legal?


The Delta 8 products offered by Hectare’s are hemp-derived, making them legal as per the U.S. Farm Bill that Congress passed in 2018, which made hemp production federally legal. 

Hemp is a variety of the cannabis plant, just as marijuana is a variety of cannabis, with the crucial difference being that hemp contains less than 0.3% THC, while marijuana is above that threshold. 

Why Take Delta 8? 

Other users are purely interested in the recreational aspects, created by the psychoactive effects from the delta-8 THC contained in these products. 

How Is Delta 8 Made?

There are two popular methods for creating Delta 8. 

The first involves extracting Delta 8 straight from the cannabis plant, in its pure state. 

The second is converting CBD to Delta 8. Basically, CBD is dissolved in a solvent, and Delta 8 is extracted from there. 

Both methods have benefits. The CBD conversion method is notable because it allows for greater fine-tuning of the amount of THC in a certain product. 

For instance, products that combine CBD and THC are typically made with the CBD conversion method, as a precise ratio between those two components can be achieved.
