Up until recently, most of us believed that there was only one kind of THC compound found in cannabis – delta 9 THC, aka the key active cannabinoid in marijuana, responsible for its famous high. Now, however, thanks to tireless research into hemp’s chemical composition, we know that that’s not the case. With over 100 cannabinoids found in hemp, we have multiple THC analogs that all share psychoactive properties, yet each affect us entirely differently. And, best of all, they’re all compliant with federal law, which states that all hemp derivatives are legal as long as they contain up to 0.3% delta 9 by dry weight.
Even delta 9 products are legal as long as they comply with the legal limit, which they can in large portion sizes while still delivering up to 10 milligrams of delta 9 THC per serving – enough for a gratifying high, without a doubt. Delta 8 THC and delta 10 THC are both 30% milder than delta 9, but still produce a notable psychoactive high that’s either deeply soothing and mellowing (delta 8) or uplifting and focus-enhancing (delta 10).
Other psychoactive THC cannabinoids that you’ll find on today’s market include THC-O, a cannabinoid considered more intoxicating than delta 9 THC. The only semi-synthesized cannabinoid that we offer, its high is described as intensely euphoric – even psychedelic in high doses, according to some of its users – and is best for experienced users. By contrast, THCV, aka tetrahydrocannabivarin, offers the mildest high that we know of, while research shows that it’s intensely valuable in other ways as well. THC-A is perhaps the most unique of all, being non-psychoactive as it’s the raw, acidic form of THC prior to being decarboxylated (heated to a specific temperature to activate its psychoactive effects). Yet, THC-A is rich in wonderful properties that can improve how we feel on a daily basis.
