WHAT IS HEMP?
Hemp is a strain of the cannabis sativa plant cultivated for food, fiber, and medicinal products. Beyond the plant’s history and the stigma associated with cannabis are the possibilities of hemp that remain to be discovered. Hemp is not Marijuana. Hemp and marijuana are derived from the same cannabis species but are genetically distinct and are further distinguished by use, chemical makeup, and cultivation methods. Legally, hemp is classified as a cannabis plant that contains 0.3 percent or less THC, while marijuana is a cannabis plant that contains more than 0.3 percent THC.
WHAT IS CBD?
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a natural element the hemp flower that is reported to produce the beneficial effects of hemp products. CBD interacts with the Endocannabinoid system in humans. The molecule Cannabidiol is found in greater quantities, 3-20%, in certain hemp strains and those have been bred specifically to produce high CBD and low THC concentrations.
WHAT IS DELTA 8 THC?
Delta-8 is Hemp’s newest, highly sought after derivative made from CBD rich cultivars. But unlike CBD, Delta 8 will make you feel high. Delta-8 THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is a naturally occurring cannabinoid in cannabis (hemp and marijuana) and is commonly abbreviated as Delta-8 THC, Δ8THC, Δ8, D8, D8 THC, and D8THC. It’s an isomer (defined as each of two or more compounds with the same formula but a different arrangement of atoms in the molecule and different properties) of both CBD and Delta-9 THC. It exists naturally and can also be produced by converting CBD or Delta 9 THC via a chemical reaction typically using heat, altered pH environments, and/or solvents.
When consumed or inhaled, Delta-8 can cause euphoria, relaxation, pain relief along with giddiness, and an increase in creativity. In other words, Delta 8 causes most or all of the effects commonly associated with the regular form of THC. The chemical differences between the two forms of THC are very small, and they both interact with receptors in our brain within our endocannabinoid system.
WILL RADICAL LABS’ HEMP SHOW UP ON A DRUG TEST?
We offer only hemp extracts derived from mature stem stalk and seed. You can expect our products to have trace amounts of THC at the legal level of 0.03 percent or less by volume.
