What Is Delta-8 THC?
Delta-8 THC is a naturally occurring cannabinoid coveted for psychoactive effects that are similar to but milder than those of Delta-9 THC. Delta-9 THC is the well-known cannabinoid responsible for the intoxicating effects of marijuana.
Delta-8 is about two-thirds as intoxicating as Delta-9 THC and provides a mellower experience that is perfect for people who find Delta-9 too intense. Delta-8 THC is available in a wide variety of products, including Delta-8 edibles and Delta-8 hemp flower.
Delta-8 THC Versus Delta-9 THC
Chemically, Delta-8 and Delta-9 THC are very similar because each has a double bond in its molecular structure. This double bond is what produces intoxicating effects.
Where the two THC’s chemically differ is in the placement of their double bond. Delta-8’s double bond is on its eighth carbon atom, whereas the double bond of Delta-9 is on its ninth carbon atom (hence the names).
The difference in the position of the double bond causes Delta-8 to interact with the endocannabinoid system in a slightly different way than Delta-9 does, resulting in it being less potent.
Although similar chemically, legally speaking the two are quite different. Delta-8 THC is federally legal because it’s derived from hemp. Delta-9 THC is federally illegal in concentrations above 0.3%.
Delta-8 THC Effects
Delta-8 has psychoactive and intoxicating effects. Users report that after consuming it, they feel euphoric, uplifted, and relaxed along with enjoying other wellness benefits.

I rely on CBD products to keep my arthritis pain at bay and allow me to be functional – but the Delta-8 gives me much more pain relief. I’m also impressed at its effectiveness in relieving stress.

Is Delta-8 THC Legal?
Yes. The Farm Bill of 2018 legalized Delta-8 by legalizing all products made from hemp that contain less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC. So Delta-8 is federally legal.
Although Delta-8 THC is legal federally, it can still result in a positive drug test for THC. If you want a THC-free product instead, check out Crescent Canna CBD Products that use pure CBD isolate and are guaranteed to contain zero THC.
Who Can Buy Delta-8?
Although the federal government imposes no age limit on buyers of Delta-8, several states require buyers to be at least 21 years old. Crescent Canna follows this policy as well. You must be at least 21 years old to buy Delta-8 THC online or in-person from us.
