What is Delta-8 THC?
Delta-8 THC (or “D8”) is one of over 100 cannabinoids that can be found in the cannabis plant. It is considered to be a minor cannabinoid because it is not found in large quantities in hemp plants. The majority of cannabinoids are minor cannabinoids.
D8 is a psychoactive cannabinoid and its effects will vary from person to person. Many people feel that it is similar but less potent than its close cousin, Delta-9 THC (“D9”) but this is not universally true. And for the majority of people for whom it is true, the difference in potency can usually be eliminated by increasing the dosage of D8 relative to D9. Which leads us to…
How should I start taking Delta-8 THC?
We recommend you start small and work your way up until you find your ideal dosage. For first time users of our edibles, you may want to try a half of one of our 25mg gummies to see how that suits you. As they say, “you can always eat more; you can’t go back in time and eat less”.
How long does Delta-8 THC take to work?
Short answer: 60-90 minutes to feel the full effect when consumed in edible form. A bit less for the sublingual (under your tongue) absorption of tinctures. Inhalation products (flower and vapes) are close to immediate.
Longer answer: The effects of D8 differ from person to person and are determined by your weight, tolerance, metabolism, and how your specific endocannabinoid system responds to different cannabinoids. If you are new to edibles, wait at least 90 minutes before consuming more.
How long do the effects of Delta-8 THC last?
As with dosing, the duration of effects vary from person to person but typically subside within a few hours for edibles and tinctures and a good bit less for vape and flower products.

What is the Legal Status of the Various Cannabinoids?
At both the federal level and in North Carolina, all products made from hemp are legal provided that they don’t contain more than .3% Delta-9 THC by weight. Our D9 products fall under that level. Different states have different laws, so please check the law in your jurisdiction as your state’s law will supersede the federal government’s opinion on the matter.
