Delta 8 Used in Products is Synthetic

THC (Delta 9 tetrahydrocannabinol) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid in the Cannabis sativa family. This includes cannabis plants, which are grown to produce high levels of THC and low levels of CBD. Hemp plants, which are federally legal to grow and harvest, are low in THC and high in other types of cannabinoids, including CBD.

One of the cannabinoids that is naturally present in hemp plants is Delta 8. However, it is present in extremely small amounts, making it impossible to extract, concentrate, and use in the commercial production of products.

Instead, it is possible to use a chemical process to change CBD or THC into Delta 8. This is a readily available process that produces a final product that is similar in action in the body to THC but without significant psychoactive effects.

Delta 8 THC has only 0.3% THC or less in the formulation, making it federally legal under the 2018 Farm Bill.
