What is Delta 8 THC?
Delta 8 THC is naturally present in hemp plants. However, Delta-8 is a novel cannabinoid-isomer found in hemp, but only in very small percentages. In other words, Delta-8 shares some similarity with cannabinoids like CBD, but it also has some key differences that make it unique.
You may have heard of Delta-8’s cousin, Delta-9 THC. While Delta-9 in high amounts produces psychoactive, intoxicating effects, Delta-8 has some key differences in chemical structure. These differences make Delta-8 only mildly sedative without the whimsical mental side effects that Delta-9 produces.
Delta 8 vs CBD
Hemp-derived Delta-8 THC products are more potent than CBD. Delta 8 differs from CBD and offers many potential benefits. It may be relaxing for some, but this high potency hemp may not be the best fit for folks who are THC sensitive.
We’re enthusiasts for all things hemp, so we see Delta-8 as a natural addition to one’s daily wellness routine. That being said, it's not a replacement for CBD.
Work closely with a qualified healthcare professional or physician to determine what kind of hemp extracts work best for you! Some cannabinoids work best when paired together, meaning using Delta-8 THC and CBD together might be the best fit for you.

There’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to CBD or THC. Everyone is different and will require a unique amount to find their sweet spot. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you start your THC journey.
- Application - Simply place one strip on the tongue and wait for it to dissolve.
- Use - Oral strips are easy to use! However long you believe it will take, give it just a bit longer. Oral strips offer fast-acting effects, but it may take up to 15 or minutes to start feeling the effects.Please do not try using more oral strips until you are sure you have given the strips adequate time to feel the full effects.
- Storage - Store at room temperature and away from direct sunlight.
In general, it’s recommended to start with a small amount and work your way up — in other words, "start low and go slow".
