What Is a Delta 8 Shot?
At STNR, we believe in offering our customers a top selection of Delta 8 products. This lineup includes Delta 8 edibles, disposables, vape carts, gummies, pre-rolls, and our top selection of Delta 8 shots.
Before getting into the flavors and uses of our shots, a closer look at Delta 8 is helpful in learning more about this relatively new cannabinoid.
The Background of Delta 8
Delta 8 is a minor cannabinoid, which means it exists only in very small amounts in the hemp plant. Although many people think Delta 8 is a relatively new discovery, this is not actually the case.
The first person to discover Delta 8 was an American scientist at the University of Illinois by the name of Roger Adams. He was an organic chemist who managed to partially synthesize Delta 8 and Delta 9. However, this research was not considered relevant or practical at that time, and the partial synthesis is all that was completed.
In 1965 Raphael Mechoulam, another organic chemist, reported to synthesize Delta 8 THC fully. Mechoulam is often considered the “father of cannabis” and the driving force behind the understanding of the pharmacology of cannabinoids. Originally Delta 8 was called Delta-6 THC. However, with the confirmation of the position of the double bond at the 8th position in the molecule, it was officially changed to Delta 8 THC.
Mechoulam’s research was completed in Israel, so he was able to continue when American research was shut down. Unfortunately, due to the Controlled Substances Act of 1970, research into Delta 8 ended in the USA.
At that time, Delta 8 was considered a type of cannabis and was listed as controlled substance. It was more relevant for research studies to continue the naturally occurring THC, which was also a controlled substance.
The major change in the law with the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill changed the interest in developing Delta 8 THC from CBD, it is considered federally legal. Any Delta 8 THC on the market today that is hemp-derived and contains less than 0.3% THC can be sold legally.
Benefits of Delta 8
While Delta 8 gummies tend to be the most popular Delta 8 product on the market, STNR offers a line of Delta 8 shots that are a great option. We think that you will love these shots, and they are easy, convenient, and tasty.
All our Delta 8 shots are extra strength and offer 100mg of Delta 8 per bottle. These are small 2 oz bottles that are easy to keep chilled in your refrigerator for a tasty option to give yourself a wellness boost at any time throughout the day.
Generally, people report using Delta 8 gives a milder but similar experience to the use of THC. This includes feeling mentally calm and relaxed, increased feelings of euphoria and uplifted mood, and the potential for reducing any pain sensations throughout the body.
The benefits to Delta 8 over THC, in addition to being legal and readily available online through our online store, make this a great option for many individuals. The most reported benefit of Delta 8 by those who use the cannabinoid is a mild high that does not include the paranoia and anxiety that is often a side effect of the use of THC.
Our Selection of D8 Shots
STNR provides three tasty options in our Delta 8 shots. Our Blue Razz is a bright, tangy combination of blueberries and raspberries. It is one of our most popular flavors and can be taken throughout the day if you need to relax and stay calm. This is also a great way to unwind at the end of the day.
For those who love the sweet taste of cherries, our Cherry Delight Extra Strength Shot is the perfect choice. We use natural flavoring and coloring, and our nano emulsified hemp derived Delta 8 THC.
One of the tastes that remind most people of lazy summer days is our Orange Creamsicle Extra Strength Delta 8 shot. This is best served icy cold and offers the same benefits as our other flavors of Delta 8 shots.
