Hemp and marijuana are both the same plant, not separate species of plant, as people commonly assume. “Hemp” and “marijuana” are flowering plants in the Cannabaceae family. Although the distinction scientifically is not significant between hemp and marijuana, according to the law there is a distinct difference between something sold as a product of the hemp plant versus something sold as a product of the marijuana plant. The key significance in the legal difference between hemp and marijuana is the amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content found in the plant.
Tetrahydrocannabinol, more commonly known as THC is a well-known cannabinoid that is found in the cannabis plant. THC is found in both hemp and marijuana, however the amount that is legally allowed in each differs according to the law. THC, the psychoactive substance most associated with “weed,” “mary jane” or “ganja,” as marijuana is commonly referred to recreationally getting “high.”
THC is limited in hemp legally to mean the cannabis plant being used contains 0.3 percent or less of THC by dry weight. The number is an arbitrary number first proposed in 1979 to create a distinction between hemp and cannabis where no scientifically distinct taxonomical difference occurs. Significantly, this definition between hemp and marijuana plants was used in the Agricultural Act of 2018 in the United States of America.
The 2018 Farm Bill legalized the use and production of hemp, AKA cannabis which contains less than 0.3 percent THC content by dry weight. This made hemp-derived products federally legal depending on state laws.
The U.S. Farm Bill is a piece of legislation that covers most federal government policies related to agriculture in the United States. It is typically renewed every five years. In 2018, congress passed the final version of the Farm Bill. The most notable changes of the 2018 Farm Bill were those involving the cannabis plant.
Hemp, defined in the legislation as the cannabis plant (which includes marijuana). The 2018 Farm Bill allows hemp to be grown and cultivated and grown on a large scale for commercial purposes. It also allows for hemp to be transported across state lines for commercial or other purposes. It does not restrict the sale, transport, or possession of hemp-derived products consistent with the law.
According to the 2018 Farm Bill any cannabinoids, defined as a set of chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant, derived from hemp are legal if and only if the hemp is produced in a way that is compliant with the Farm Bill, federal regulations, state regulations, and are a licensed grower. Cannabinoids produced outside of these regulations are illegal and considered Schedule I status substances.
Hemp is defined in the 2018 Farm Bill as the cannabis plant. This is the same plant that produces marijuana. The key difference between the two is that hemp cannot contain more than 0.3 percent of THC. Any cannabis plant that contains more than 0.3 percent THC is defined as “non-hemp cannabis” or marijuana under federal law. Products containing greater than the federal limit of THC are not covered under the 2018 Farm Bill.
Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol, or delta-8, as commonly called, is a psychoactive substance found in the Cannabis sativa plant. Cannabis and hemp are two varieties of the Cannabis sativa plant. The plant contains over 100 cannabinoids, and Delta-8 THC is one of the naturally occurring compounds.
The popularity of Delta-8 THC has grown considerably over the past few years, in part due to the increase availability due to the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill which made this a federally legal forym of THC.
The chemical structure is like the compound Delta-9-tetrahudrocannabinol, more commonly known as Delta-9-THC or “marijuana” or “weed.” Both Delta-8 and Delta-9 are forms of THC. Like Delta-9-THC, Delta-8-THC is a psychoactive compound that can get you “high.” The effects of both substances are euphoric, and hallucinogenic. The effects of Delta-8 are generally slightly milder and more controlled than those of Delta-9-THC. Side effects such as paranoia and anxiety sometimes associated with Delta-9-THC are less potent in Delta-8-THC.
Yes. Delta-8-THC has a similar chemical structure to the better-known cannabinoid, Delta-9-THC people commonly use to get “stoned” or “high.” Although delta-8-THC needs to be taken a higher dose per mg, it will get you high. Many people report that the high from Delta-8-THC produces less of the negative side effects of marijuana, with users reporting less anxiety, and paranoia than traditional weed.
As with other prescription and recreational drugs, all users will not report the same effects from using delta-8-THC. The intensity of your high and how much you should take will vary from person-to-person.
Delta-8-THC can get you high relatively quickly. Vaping or drinking some forms of Delta-8-THC will take effect within 1-6 minutes. A tincture will generally take a bit longer to produce effects and is generally felt about 30 minutes after consuming.
For gummies and other edibles the effects of Delta-8-THC will not be felt until around an hour. The longer onset time for these edibles is because it takes time for your body to digest the food and for the drug to reach your bloodstream, AKA first-pass effect. For vapes, smoking and drinks it takes less time for the drug to enter your bloodsteam. Tinctures are somewhat in the middle.
For most people Delta-8-THC effects will last for about five to seven hours. The amount of time that the drug lasts in your system is determined by various factors including you age, gender, age, body type and any health conditions. The amount of time also is determined by how much is consume and the form it is consumed.
Delta-8-THC can be consumed in a variety of forms including, smoking, drinking and eating products that contain Delta-8-THC. Popular forms of smoking Delta-8-THC are vapes, prerolls and flower. Delta-8-THC can be consumed in the form of edibles such as brownies, cookies and other forms of food. Delta-8 Gummies are also a popular way to get the effect of Delta-8 without smoking. Another way to consume Delta-8-THC is using a tincture, which can be added to beverages and food.
