Did you know that there are different versions of THC? So, What is THC? 

THC, also called delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol, is a chemical compound that comes from the hemp plant. It produces the feeling of being high that cannabis users report. Like all compounds, cannabis can have different versions of THC. Delta-8 THC produces a weaker effect than delta-9 THC. Effects of delta-8 THC include mind alterations and psychedelic effects, as well as an improved sense of humor.

There are some amazing properties that come with hemp oil. 

Did you know that CBD from hemp can be converted into Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol?

What is CBD?

CBD (cannabidiol) is the second most popular cannabinoid molecule from the cannabis and hemp plant, next to THC. CBD derived from industrial hemp is non-psychoactive and is only beginning to touch the surface of its potential medical benefits. Our lab puts exceptional care into their extraction process in order to add more than just CBD to our products without creating a product that contains unwanted vegetation ingredients such as chlorophyll, which is common when using ethanol extracted CBD oils.  We pride ourselves on our attention to detail in order to give you a pure and positive experience.

If the potential medical benefits of CBD  interest you, then you should reconsider your option of purchasing pure CBD  from a company with only an internet presence. Buy from a company that puts exceptional care into their production process to ensure they are infusing their products with CBD as well as hundreds of other naturally occurring molecules specific to ATLRx Premier High-CBD hemp strain.

What is Delta 8 THC?

Delta 8 is a non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis & hemp, which could possibly have therapeutic potential without the buzz. Researchers are particularly interested in CBD’s role in epilepsy treatment, but it has also shown promise for treating anxiety, insomnia, depression, inflammation, skin conditions, and more.

Delta-8 THC is basically the same chemical compound, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), but it’s produced through a different process. Delta-8 THC is not psychoactive by itself; it requires heating or aging in order to become active. So, it doesn’t get you high. It smells the same and looks the same, but it’s about 30 percent less potent than delta-9 THC. 

Delta-8 (8-delta) is an emerging cannabis compound that is markedly less prone to generate euphoria or offer relief from pain than delta 9. But, in nature, there is no such thing as a Delta 8 flower.

Delta-8 THC CBD is a combination of Delta-8 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD). Unlike some combination cannabinoids, this is not one of the most common combinations. There are some advantages to having both cannabinoids, while some examples of where they could be better if used separately.
