However, there are some things that are important to know about Delta 8.
Whether you are a first-time buyer or a long-time enthusiast, you are sure to find out something interesting from this article, where we will explain five essential facts about Delta 8 Tetrahydrocannabinol.
1. D8 Is Not the Same as Delta 9, Despite Chemical Similarities
When you see the abbreviation “THC” used, it more often than not refers to Delta 9 THC, not Delta 8 THC.
This is because Delta 9 THC is the compound responsible for the “high” in marijuana products.
Delta 9 can also be derived from hemp, however, which is why we here at Hectare’s and Bourbon Country Cannabis are able to offer customers products such as Delta 9 small beverages.
Delta 8 and Delta 9 are isomers, meaning they have the same chemical makeup but a different arrangement of atoms.
That slight difference in structure ensures that Delta 8 is the milder option of the two. So, if you want a recreational experience that is not as intense as Delta 9, then spring for Delta 8 products.
2. Delta 8 Can Be Derived from Hemp, Making It Legal
In 2018, Congress passed the 2018 U.S. Farm Bill, which legalized the production of hemp.
Hemp is just a variety of the cannabis plant, just as marijuana is a variety of the cannabis plant.
Knowledgeable cannabis enthusiasts must have anticipated that hemp’s lower THC content meant that effective Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC products could still be derived from hemp.
And so here we are today, where you can legally buy and enjoy hemp-derived Delta 8 THC products from vendors across the country.

So, Delta 8’s origins are completely natural.
5. Delta 8 Will Still Show Up On A Drug Test
