Meet the New Kid on Campus: Delta-8 THC
You remember that curiosity that overcame you when a new kid was on campus? Who are they? What are they about? Well, we'd like to introduce you to the new kid on the THC scene. Delta-8 THC is a naturally occurring chemical compound that is found in hemp. We've all heard of hemp and all it can do. But have you heard what Boom Bestie's hemp can do? Our hemp derived delta-8 THC has awesome psychoactive and intoxicating effects, similar to delta-9 THC. While they have similar effects, there are slight differences regarding what delta-8 THC is and how it affects you. Delta-8 THC has a lower psychotropic potency than delta-9 THC giving a calmer and clearer high with less appetite stimulant effect, meaning you are less likely to get “couch-lock” and the “munchies”. Perfect for those of us who want to smoke but still get ready for bathing suit season. Delta-8 THC is less likely to make you anxious or paranoid when compared to delta-9 THC, it provides an energizing high while maintaining mental focus. It's great for social gatherings. Delta-8 THC produces feelings of euphoria, relaxation, and pain relief that simply can't be matched by other products.
Now let's get technical Bestie: Delta-8 THC is a cannabinoid molecule and reacts with the human body’s natural endocannabinoid system on a molecular level to impact the body and mind’s natural cyclic rhythms including sleep cycles, appetite, pain, inflammation, stress, and hormonal functions. The Cliff Notes version: it makes you feel amazing!
Narcs back off as our Delta-8 THC that is derived from hemp is legal. Woohoo! Did you know, for hemp to be considered legal, it must contain less than 0.3% delta-9 THC. Thankfully in 2018, Farm Bill made it legal to produce and distribute hemp and it's by-products across the United States. When choosing a delta-8 THC product you should check that its quality is controlled like ours at Boom Bestie always is. Check to see that the manufacturing company can provide proof of third-party testing by an ISO 17025 compliant laboratory and discloses the source of their hemp. Now Besties - Be sure the product contains no more than 0.3% delta-9 THC and passes tests for pesticides, molds, and heavy metals according the product’s certificate of analysis. That's some important ish. Being safe while using a THC product is vital! Luckily, you can always count on your besties at Boom Bestie.
