DELTA-8 LEGALITY MAP - JULY 2021
Unlike CBD, Delta-8-THC produces euphoric effects that are similar to but milder than those of Delta-9-THC, the well-known psychoactive compound in cannabis.
The Delta-8-THC craze began when an oversupply of CBD extracted from US-grown hemp caused the price of CBD to plummet. Producers began looking for ways to turn the glut of CBD into something profitable. Using simple chemistry reported in the 1960s, the industry got creative and started experimenting with ways to convert CBD into Delta-8-THC. The resulting products target consumers who are looking to relieve stress and anxiety, especially those who don’t want to use traditional cannabis products or those who live in places where cannabis products are not legally available.
