Is Delta-8 THC Safe?

What is DELTA-8 THC?

DELTA-8 THC-A, or delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol, is one of the active components in the plant cannabis, making it the chemical component most responsible for the psychoactive effects of cannabis. It contains high amounts of the compound THC, found in cannabis, which is the main intoxicant in cannabis. It is generally extracted using chemical solvents such as butane or propane. (Not at Str8 Delta-8) Delta-8 can be consumed in form of edibles or oil extracts (Vaping or Sublingual). It is the most well-known natural legal extract in the consumer space.

DELTA-8 THC is also very important for the "high" that many people experience when smoking or eating cannabis. Some people confuse DELTA-8 THC with delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC-V), a compound that has a variety of effects, but is especially known for its ability to get people "high."



Most cannabis products are designed to get you high. Delta-8-THC is designed to help you feel better. But because it is a close relative of THC, it will get you high if you consume too much or mix it with cannabis that has higher levels of THC. The recommended daily dose of delta-8-THC is between 0.5 to 2.5 mg if you don't want to get high.  Start around 10mg 1/2 a gummy if you do want to feel high.  Then increase slowly till you are comfortable.  Remember you can't take back taking too much.  Start small and work your way up to find your dosage.  Each person is different.


How is Delta-8-THC Manufactured?

The manufacturing of DELTA-8-THC takes place by extracting cannabinoids from the cannabis plant through distillation. It is then extracted from the hemp plant and sequentially purified to remove the compounds that were not removed during the distillation phase. The remaining substance is then sold as a final product to consumers.

In order to produce more Delta-8-THC, cannabis plants must be grown in a certain method. This is done by taking a plant, drying it, and then drying it again. This is called "drying the plant". Drying the plant first causes the plant cells to rupture so it releases its THC and other high-THC compounds.


CBD Oils

CBD oil is made from processed cannabis plants, and it can come in many different forms, depending on the extraction method and ratio of CBD to THC. There are hundreds of different ways to extract CBD. Methods include using alcohol, separating hexane from the seed oils, and using supercritical CO2 extraction.

CBD oils have some of the highest percentages of CBD extract of any plant, making them one of the most sought-after products in America. CBD oils are also highly concentrated, which means you need less of the product to achieve the desired results.

They can also contain certain amounts of terpenes and flavonoids, which are natural plant extracts that contribute to the smell and flavor of cannabis. Many other cannabis-derived products, such as CBD gummies and tinctures, are also available. More states in America are legalizing marijuana-based products for recreational use, and CBD oil can be found in many drug stores and head shops.

CBD can also be used to CALM your high.  If you do take to much delta-8 or delta-9 and feel paranoid taking a small does of CBD can calm you.

Effects of delta-8 THC on the nervous system.

The primary effect of delta-8 THC is on the nervous system. The nervous system is responsible for transmitting signals between the brain and the body. The nervous system is made up of the brain and spinal cord. The brain is responsible for receiving information, processing it, and sending it on to the body and the spinal cord is responsible for carrying information from the body back to the brain.

Delta-8-THC affects the nervous system is by acting on the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is a group of receptors and enzymes that are found throughout the body. When cannabinoids like delta-8-THC interact with the endocannabinoid system, they can have various effects on different parts of the body.

Delta-8 THC has been shown to have similar effects as other cannabinoids in the body, but it also has some unique side effects of its own. The most common side effects of Delta-8 THC include: tiredness, dizziness, difficulty focusing, dry mouth, and nausea. Some people also experience different side effects when using delta-8-THC, such as: pain, red eyes, and increased appetite.


F.D.A take on delta-8-THC.

Delta-8-THC has a controversial history. After increasing in popularity throughout the 1960s, it was largely banned in the 1970s, only to be re-introduced in the 1980s.

The Food and Drug Administration (F.D.A.) currently has a federal definition of what constitutes a "CBD product." According to F.D.A. policy, a CBD product is defined as a cannabis-based product that contains the non-intoxicating components of cannabis (Cannabis sativa) and that has “no more than ten milligrams” of THC per dose.

The current federal definition of a "CBD product" does not, however, include any specific requirements for labeling or other regulatory requirements. The Food and Drug Administration (F.D.A.) is currently developing the rules that will govern the products, which will include a provision that will ensure they are safe when used for therapeutic purposes, but would not preclude them from being used for other purposes such as medicinal marijuana or recreational marijuana.



The chemical structure of THC is simple: tetrahydrocannabinol is a psychoactive chemical that is a constituent of both marijuana and hashish. THC is found in marijuana and hash that is commonly used for recreational and medicinal purposes. As THC has become more common, so has the perception that it is a safe and benign drug; therefore, more people are using it for its psychoactive effects.

It is also being used for its medicinal benefits, though this is still a relatively new development. Decriminalization of cannabis is associated with improved health outcomes and reduced rates of other drug use. The legalization of cannabis is also associated with reduced use of other drugs and reduced marijuana-related traffic fatalities.


The Verdict: Is delta-8 THC safe or hazardous?

The answer to this question depends on your health goals, tolerance level, and current medication regimen. Delta-8 THC has been shown to have significant medical benefits for patients with chronic pain, anxiety, and other disorders. It has also been shown to have limited therapeutic value for patients with certain types of cancer and severe epilepsy. The safety of delta-8 THC has been well-established throughout the scientific and medical communities.

Most cannabis consumers will agree that delta-8-THC is the most potent strain of cannabis and most effective at delivering a psychoactive high. However, most consumers will also agree that delta-8-THC is the least pleasant strain of cannabis for consumers to smoke. That said, there is no evidence that consuming delta-8-THC poses any greater risk to consumers’ health than consuming other strains of cannabis. In terms of the overall safety of cannabis, consumers will continue to learn more about the health impacts of specific strains and how those strains compare to one another.

In short, it depends on what you're looking for. Overall, the verdict is: It’s nice. It’s kind. It’s safe. The decision of whether or not to allow the commercial production of CBD products is still out.


How to report complaints & cases of accidental exposure/ adverse effect of delta THC.

If you or a family member has experienced an adverse effect, such as a psychotic episode, from consuming a CBD product that contained delta-8 THC, you should report the incident to your state health department and the Federal Government. The Federal Government is responsible for collecting safety data and reporting adverse effects to the F.D.A.

State health departments are responsible for investigating and taking action on complaints, which may include requiring the product to be removed from the market, issuing a warning, or taking other action. You can also report any suspected case of accidental exposure to delta-8 THC by calling the Poison Control Hotline. The Poison Center will provide you with information about when to seek medical care and when to wait for the symptoms to go away on their own.
