The Next Big Cannabinoid
Delta 8 is a hemp derived cannabinoid that has an uplifting yet relaxing effect with a clear and clean feeling. Unlike Delta 9, Delta 8 does not have a groggy come down or anxious feeling. Experience the next big thing with INDICALOUD.
Yes, Delta 8 THC is federally legal under the 2018 Farm Bill.
Federal Legality of Hemp and Hemp Derived Products
Such as delta-8 THC
Containing Less than 0.3% delta-9 THC on a Dry Weight Basis
Controlled Substances Act
• As a result of the 2018 Farm Bill, the Controlled Substances Act (CSA)definition of “marijuana” set forth in 21 USC §802(16) now specifically excludes “hemp, as it is defined in 7 USC § 1639o”, which definition is “the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.”
• “Tetrahydrocannabinols in hemp” are also now removed from Schedule I of the CSA’s controlled substances list pursuant to 21 USC § 812 (c)(17).
• The rules promulgated by the USDA enforcing the 2018 Farm Bill state that in order to determine the “Acceptable hemp THC level” from a sample plant, what must be measured is the “delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol content concentration level on a dry weight basis.” 7 CFR § 990.1.
• Furthermore, for the purposes of the USDA rules, the terms “delta-9-THC and THC are interchangeable,” which indicates that any rule reference to THC level is only referring to delta-9 THC. See 7 CFR § 990.1.
Hemp and hemp derived products, such as delta-8 THC, that comply with the .3% or less delta-9 THC concentration requirement are no longer illegal substances under federal criminal law. See 7 USC 1639o et seq.; 7 CFR § 990.1 et seq.
While Delta 8 THC may get you high, it’s important to note that the psychoactive buzz produced by the cannabinoid is fleeting in duration. How long a Delta 8 high lasts is impacted by a number of factors. Whether you’re looking to take advantage of the potential therapeutic benefits of cannabis or simply relax, it’s worth taking the time and effort required to understand different variables that can affect your experience.
The great news is that Delta 8 provides a clearer high than other traditional forms of THC, making dosing and timing out your experience more manageable. Delta 8 can provide similar effects as Delta 9 THC, such as stimulating appetite and reducing pain and anxiety, without the paranoia and intense psychoactivity. Read on to learn more about science behind Delta 8 highs and how to control the duration of your cannabis experience.
Much of your experience with D8 will depend on your highly individualized biological makeup. Different types of cannabis can produce different effects as well. One product may lead to a sleepy high while another one leaves you feeling more alert. These results may also vary from person to person.
These variances are due to the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) which allows Delta 8 to affect us all differently. Put simply, the endocannabinoid system is the network of receptors that help the body maintain internal balance and regulate bodily functions. Cannabis users feel a high when the THC in the plant they consumed interact with their bodies. Cannabinoids produce an effect by binding to the body’s cannabinoid receptors, where they are then broken down by enzymes. Our cannabinoid receptors have genetic variations from person to person, which in turn can alter the effects of cannabis, including the duration of the overall experience.
When vaping concentrates, the onset of effects is nearly immediate, but the duration depends largely on the individual’s tolerance. As always, your biological makeup, along with the chemical makeup of the cannabis you’re consuming, will determine how long a Delta 8 THC high lasts.

Delta-8, like delta-9 (regular THC), binds to the body’s endocannabinoid system, which causes you to feel high. Chemically, delta-8 and delta-9 are similar in that they both have a double bond in their structures. This double bond is thought to produce the intoxicating effects that make you feel high.
The two THCs are chemically different in the placement of the double bond. Both cannabinoids have a chain of carbon atoms, but delta-8 has the double bond on the eighth carbon, whereas delta-9 has it on the ninth.
Delta-8 binds to the endocannabinoid system in a slightly different fashion because of the location of its double bond. This is what is thought to make delta-8 much less potent than regular THC. However, more research needs to be done on delta-8 and how it interacts with the body.
