(0) Delta-8: Things You Should Know

Delta-8 is one of the most popular forms of cannabis products right now. Sales have surged and options are abundant all over the United States. What is Delta-8 and does it make sense for your company to offer it? Here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions regarding the fastest growing cannabis product in the United States.

 

What does delta-8 do?

Delta-8 THC gets you high in a similar way to delta-9 THC. Most people feel delta-8 THC delivers approximately 60% of the high as ordinary THC. Some people also experience fewer side effects or a different ‘high’ than they usually would, although results vary between strains.

 

Will delta-8 THC cause me to fail a drug test?

Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is chemically similar to ‘ordinary’ THC (delta-9 THC), and it’s possible you could fail a drug test from taking delta-8 THC. If the drug test checks for THC, then delta-8 THC products could cause you to fail the test – similar to how a CBD product could cause you to fail a drug test because even if it contains less than 0.3% THC.

 

Why should I take delta-8 THC?

The most significant benefit of delta-8 THC is that it’s legal at a federal level. Because of an apparent loophole in the 2018 Farm Bill, you can order delta-8 products across the United States. As long as your delta-8 product is hemp-derived and has less than 0.3% THC, it’s considered federally legal according to the 2018 Farm Bill.

 

Is delta-8 legal?

Delta-8 appears to be legal at a federal level. However, 15 states have banned or restricted delta-8 THC, and other states could ban delta-8 products in the future. Check laws at your local group to avoid shipping issues with your delta- 8 products.

What’s the best delta-8 brand?

How do I take delta-8 THC?

You can buy delta-8 THC products in many forms, including cartridges, flowers, edibles, vapes, and more.

 

Can I drive after taking delta-8 THC?

Delta-8 THC gets you high like regular THC. Treat delta-8 THC like you would treat any other products with THC, which typically means you should not operate a motor vehicle soon after taking THC.

 

Will delta-8 become fully legal in the future?

As regulations on delta-8 clarify, it may become completely legal in the future. States like Oregon and Washington have restricted delta-8 THC, for example, despite legalizing recreational use of cannabis at a state level. These states and others could be the first to legalize delta-8 THC officially.

 

What are the benefits of delta-8 THC?

Studies have linked delta-8 THC to similar benefits as ordinary THC, including fewer chemotherapy-induced side effects, reduced symptoms of glaucoma, and other potential uses. However, there have been few studies specifically examining the effects of delta-8 THC on humans.

 

Will delta-8 THC be banned?

Delta-8 THC has already been banned in 15 states, and more states have restricted the use of delta-8 THC. It seems likely more states will ban delta-8 THC in the coming months.

 

Will I get in trouble for buying delta-8 THC?

Because of the 2018 Farm Bill, delta-8 THC is legal at the federal level. However, some states have banned delta-8 THC, and you could face penalties for buying delta-8 products. In practice, however, we can find no instances of people facing punishment for buying delta-8THC.

 

How much delta-8 THC should I take?

Most people recommend starting small and increasing your dosage based on your weight, age, sex, tolerance, and experience. People take anywhere from 2.5mg to 100mg of delta-8 THC per serving, depending on these factors.

 

Why is delta-8 expensive?

Delta-8 products are more expensive because they’re trendy. Manufacturers are quickly running out of stock. Delta-8 is also costly to make, and it comes with higher manufacturing costs than other CBD and THC products.

 

How do I buy delta-8 THC?

You can buy delta-8 THC online through many popular CBD or delta-8 companies. Most companies ship to any state where delta-8 has not been explicitly banned.

We are excited to provide helpful articles and tools for the cannabis and beverage industries. We wanted to start out sharing some ideas on why packaging is a necessity in the industry since that is what we do! The cannabis industry has become crowded with options and brands, and we want to help you stand out in the crowd! Packaging is the key to help you do just that!

 

High-Quality Packaging is Essential for Success

 

There are many reasons you should take the time to thoughtfully design your cannabis packaging. Here are just a few:

 

Protecting Your Product-strong exterior packaging will protect your product and keep it at its highest quality.

 

Brand Identity-Packaging gives you the opportunity to market the product to the customers. The nicer the packaging, the perception to the customer is, the nicer the product.

 

Attract Customers-Appealing designs and colors will draw the customer’s eyes to your product instead of the competition.

 

Build Trust-premium packaging portrays a reputable and trust worthy brand to the customer. A well designed package can provide peace of mind to the customer leading them to continue to use your product in the future.

 

What Makes Good Cannabis Packaging?

 

As a cannabis retailer, you face many challenges you will need to consider when you are designing your packaging. Consider using a company that specializes in the cannabis industry, as they can guide you through the process. Here are a few considerations for the creation of your cannabis packaging:

 

  •          Will it protect your product? This is extremely important, as you need to consider your product could be exposed to sunlight, heat and humidity as it travels to your customer. This can degrade the product’s potency.
  •          Who is your target market? Marketing to different age groups or even social groups will help you determine what type of branding you want to portray to your customers. You need to identify who you want to sell to so you can focus your efforts on reaching that customer.
  •          Is it Sustainable? The cannabis industry is known for environmental awareness and you may want to consider making sure your packaging is recyclable or reusable.
  •          Is Discretion Important? Many cannabis users do not want to broadcast their purchase in fear of public perception or scrutiny. You may want to consider an exit bag or shipping materials that keep cannabis purchases private.
  •          What regulations are in place in your state? You need to be mindful of any restrictions your state might have in place when creating your packaging. The rules and regulations can be challenging and they do change.
  •          Make sure your packaging is child resistant. All cannabis packaging must be child resistant. You need to design a package that is difficult for a child to open, but easy for an adult to figure out.

 

Overall, packaging is essential to the success of any cannabis business. Take time to design a packaging product with high quality and try to consider all of the factors and challenges you may face. Be compliant, but be creative. Designing packaging for the Cannabis industry can be FUN!
