Alternative Cannabinoids Explained

WHAT IS DELTA 8 THC?

DELTA 8 THC (△8-TETRAHYDROCANNABINOL) IS JUST ONE OF THE 80 TO 100 CANNABINOIDS FOUND IN CANNABIS. WHILE DELTA 8 IS A HEMP DERIVED ISOMER OF CBD, IT POSSESS MANY SIMILARITIES IN EFFECT AND MOLECULAR COMPOSITION TO ITS BIG BROTHER, DELTA 9 THC. BOTH DELTA 8 AND DELTA 9 ARE PSYCHOACTIVE CHEMICALS THAT PRODUCE A HIGH WHEN CONSUMED. HOWEVER, DESPITE THEIR MANY SIMILARITIES , MOST USERS HAVE REPORTED A CLEANER, CALMER EFFECT FROM DELTA 8 THAN ITS BOLDER COUNTERPART.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DELTA 8 THC & DELTA 9 THC?

SIMPLY PUT, △8 THC IS THE YOUNGER BROTHER TO △9 THC.

△9 THC, TYPICALLY REFERRED TO AS JUST ‘THC’ IS THE MOST COMMON AND FAMILIAR PSYCHOACTIVE COMPOUND PRESENT IN CANNABIS. HOWEVER, △9 THC ISN’T THE ONLY PSYCHOACTIVE CANNABINOID IN CANNABIS SATIVA L. – OTHER COMPOUNDS SUCH AS △8 THC ARE NATURALLY OCCURRING AND CREATE A HIGH WHEN CONSUMED.

WHAT IS HHC?

A NEWER PRODUCT TO GAIN POPULARITY, HHC IS AN ALTERNATIVE CANNABINOID MANUFACTURED THROUGH HYDROGENIZING ∆9 THC FROM HEMP DERIVED CBD. HHC USERS REPORT IT’S PSYCHOACTIVE EFFECTS ARE APPROXIMATELY 90% AS POTENT AS ∆9 THC. HHC IS LEGAL IN STATES WHERE THC CANNABINOIDS ARE BANNED. AS IT GAINS POPULARITY TIME WILL TELL DEFINITIVELY, HOWEVER HHC CURRENTLY SHOULDN’T BE PRESENT ON STANDARD DRUG TEST.

WHAT IS THC-O?

THC-O IS A MORE POTENT ALTERNATIVE CANNABINOID FALLING UNDER SIMILAR CLASSIFICATION AS ∆8 THC. THC-O USERS REPORT APPROXIMATELY 3.5 TIMES STRONGER POTENCY THAN ∆9 THC. THC-O IS FORMULATED BY ADDING ACETIC ANHYDRIDE, A COMMON COMPOUND FOUND IN ASPRIN, TO HEMP DERIVED THC.

WHAT IS THC-P?

AN EXTREMELY NEW PSYCHOACTIVE COMPOUND TO ENTER THE ALTERNATIVE CANNABINOID MARKET, THC-P IS MOST KNOWN FOR ITS EXTREME POTENCY. THC-P USERS & RECENT CANNABINOID STUDIES SUGGEST A 33 TIMES STRONGER POTENCY THAN ∆9 THC IN IT’S RAW FORM. THC-P IS A NATURALLY OCCURRING CANNABINOID AND ANALOG OF THC PRESENT IN VARIETIES OF CANNABIS. MOST THC-P PRODUCTS ON THE MARKET CURRENTLY INCLUDE CONTENT OF ROUGHLY 1.5%. THC-P FALLS UNDER SIMILAR CLASSIFICATION AS ∆8 THC.

ARE ALTERNATIVE CANNABINOIDS LEGAL?

DEPENDS WHERE YOU LIVE.

AT THE FEDERAL LEVEL, ALL HEMP PRODUCTS CONTAINING LESS THAN .3% △9 THC CONTENT ARE LEGAL PER THE 2018 FARM BILL.

HOWEVER, AS ALTERNATIVE CANNABINOID PRODUCTS GAIN POPULARITY – SOME STATES HAVE TAKEN DIFFERENT STANCES ON THE ISSUE. RESEARCH THE LAWS IN THE STATE YOU LIVE BEFORE YOU BUY!

IF YOU LIVE IN A STATE WITH A THC CANNABINOID BAN, LOOK TO OUR HHC PRODUCTS AS AN ALTERNATIVE!
