What is Delta 8?

There are over 120 known cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. The most well-known cannabinoid, Delta 9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), is responsible for the psychoactive and psychotropic properties of the cannabis plant. Delta-8 THC provides mildly mood-altering effects like its more well-known cousin, but not to the same extent. Delta-8 products containing no more than 0.3% Delta-9 THC on a dry-weight basis are federally legal and are lawful in many states across the country.

While Δ8THC can alter and elevate your mood, it is much more functional than Δ9THC and far less intoxicating. It can give a moderate “buzz” but without the same levels of paranoia, intoxication or anxieties typically associated with Delta 9 THC.

Until recently this cannabinoid has not been widely available outside of the medical marijuana industry, but thanks President Trump and Congress, the groundbreaking legislation known as the allowed for cannabinoids like Δ8THC to be legalized federally and we are now able to begin quantifying all of its many potential benefits.

The 2018 Farm Bill defines “hemp” as: “the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.” Delta-9 THC is the primary intoxicating component of cannabis. Cannabis with a Delta-9 THC level exceeding 0.3 percent is considered marijuana, which remains a Schedule I controlled substance regulated by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) under the Controlled Substances Act. In recent communications, the DEA has made it clear that it is concerned only with whether products contain artificially derived cannabinoids (ours don’t) and whether they exceed 0.3% Delta-9 THC on a dry weight basis (ours don’t). For this reason, our products are federally legal, and absent state prohibition to the contrary, our Delta-8 products are lawful in most states as well.

Delta 8 derived from hemp is legal.  Delta 8 derived from non-hemp materials is not  It’s important to purchase from a reputable source with 3rd party lab testing.

Nov 3, 2021 Update: US DOJ-DEA Clarifies Its Position That Hemp-derived Delta 8 THC Is NOT Illegal.

As far as the endocannabinoid system, Delta-9 THC only activates the CB1 receptor whereas, Delta-8 THC activates both the CB1 and CB2 receptors. When both receptors are involved there is an associated physical state known as homeostasis, the body’s natural resting state, when it is not in a fight or fight mode. This is the same effect CBD has on the body.

The benefits of Delta-8 are considerably different than those of Delta-9. In studies dating back to 1974 when cannabinoids were being studied by Professor Raphael Mechoulam, he found that Delta-8 is an enormously powerful immune system activator and eliminated nausea in patients who were ill from cancer medications and chemotherapy treatments. Additionally, it was shown in 1995 during a study done in Israel to shrink tumors.

Δ8THC users typically report feeling far more active and outgoing with increased confidence and almost none of the anxiousness and paranoia associated with Δ9THC usage. Δ8THC gives a more manageable “heady” feeling typically allowing for more activity while in use, compared to Δ9THC which tends to be felt more in the body and can often suppress physical activity.

If you are using cannabinoids and want to get stuff done, hang out with friends, or have a video game marathon, Δ8THC may be the better choice. If you’re looking to sit on the couch and watch a movie, Δ9THC may be the way to go.

Many people are confused about the current state of affairs related to delta 8 THC. 

This cannabinoid is found naturally in the cannabis plant, yet many people are worried it may be synthetic.  Mostly because of all the problems that have arisen from synthetic THCs in the past.

You may have heard that in several states they are trying to crack down on Delta-8 regulations. This can be stressful if you’re in one of those key states, like Texas, and you have been using Delta 8 for anxiety, stress, sleep, etc.  Whether you are a retailer or a Delta-8 consumer, this affects you to some level. 

In this post, you’ll learn where delta 8 THC comes from, why experts consider it naturally derived rather than synthetic, and what this means from a legal perspective.

Is Delta 8 THC a Synthetic?

As per the actual definition of delta-8 THC according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), the molecule HAS “antiemetic, anxiolytic, appetite-stimulating, analgesic, and neuroprotective properties.” Much like delta-9 it binds to the CB1 receptor, but unlike delta-9 it is not associated with as strong psychoactive properties.

As early as 1974 a study came out that had been done to see if delta-8 had an effect on the immune system. What they found is that not only did it not detract from an immune response, but that it has cancer fighting abilities as well. The study looked at delta-8, delta-9, CBN, and CBD. In this particular study it was not CBD that showed the greatest effect, but rather delta-8 and delta-9. The study participants were mice, and after 10 days of treatment with delta-9 showed slowed tumor growth depending on dose. After 20 days of treatment with delta-8, the mice showed a decrease in the size of the actual tumor. In this instance the delta-8 was combined with CBN.

Unfortunately, this information, much like most medical information regarding the cannabis plant, seemed to be buried for quite some time.

Unlike other popular cannabinoids on the market which are artificially created, Delta-8 THC is naturally expressed in the cannabis plant and we use Delta-8 THC that is derived from hemp plants. By law, hemp plants can contain no more than 0.3% Delta-9 THC on a dry weight basis, and all of our products, including our Delta-8 products, satisfy these requirements. Using these plants, we create Delta-8 products, including flower, gummies, tinctures, and vapes that provide users the benefits of Delta-8 THC while remaining lawful on the federal and many state levels.

CBD started the hemp revolution, then came delta 8.

People are turning to delta 8 THC because of its legal advantages. This cannabinoid offers a very similar set of perceptual effects as delta 9 THC from marijuana — but it’s legal in 33 states — 12 of which ban the more common delta 9 THC isomer. 

However, there’s plenty of other reasons to turn to delta 8 THC as well. It’s because of these additional benefits that many experts believe delta 8 THC is here to stay.

Here are five of the main reasons people turn to delta 8 THC.   


2. Relaxation

3. Focus

4. Creativity

5. Curb Satiety

Users of Delta-8 products report it being similar to the experience they have when using Delta-9 THC, including marijuana. However, many users claim it’s a more pleasant and less overwhelming experience compared to using Delta-9. For this reason, many users suggest Delta-8 as a good way to use cannabis products without experiencing some of the negative side effects, including paranoia. Most users report feelings of clear-headedness, joy, and positivity while using Delta-8 products. It is a lot of fun.

Although it’s a THC, it does not have an intense high. Because of this, many people take it to help them with anxiety, sleep problems, and maybe even pain management, among other reasons. Due to its potential, various companies are already selling delta-8 THC products, both online and offline

Our Delta 8 THC tincture contains a broad spectrum hemp extract with Delta 8 THC, other cannabinoids, and terpenes for maximum effectiveness. Uses MCT as the carrier oil. The terpenes give this product a plant taste, so be aware of that.

With Δ8THC having minimal drug testing research, it is not clear if a consumer of Δ8THC products would fail or pass a drug test. We have had consumer reports of both negative and positive drug tests while using Δ8THC products. Because Δ8THC is so closely related to Δ9THC it is possible it can show up positively on a drug test the same way Δ9THC would. Most traditional drug screen panels test for the presence of cannabinoids, Δ8THC being a cannabinoid. It is not typical that a common drug screen panel would screen for certain cannabinoids to know if the consumer is using Δ8THC or Δ9THC. All cannabinoids are assumed to show the presence of cannabis in this case. It is advised that the use of any products that contain THC content should be used at your own discretion.

We recommend not using them if you are required to pass a drug test for marijuana.

Delta 8 only exists as about .01% of dried cannabis flowers, whether higher THC (marijuana) or lower THC (hemp).

RESTART CBD Delta 8 premium flower strains include our outdoor-grown hemp flower. All our flower is tested and validated for safety and cannabinoid potency. It is high-quality, organically grown in USA from Oregon. The best state for outdoor grown hemp. 

It’s then infused with an organic and naturally derived distillate of Delta 8.

This product may not be for everyone. Start with a small amount and wait 24 hours to see how your body reacts before consuming more.

Hemp flower is appealing if you like the almost instant effects. Hemp flower doesn’t have an addictive opponent and is non-psychoactive compared to it’s marijuana cousin. And it couldn’t be more different to tobacco which contains nicotine, an extremely addictive compound.  Now infused with Delta 8, for even more benefits.

Inhaled cannabinoids responds more quickly than oils, edibles and capsules. Nothing beats the rapid delivery of cannabinoids into the bloodstream than smoking flower, although vaped cannabinoid kicks in at the same rate. Once in the bloodstream, they disperse all over the body, and even into the brain, allowing for several therapeutic effects.

Then there’s the pure pleasure of rolling a joint, and enjoying in the delicious, complex flavors of flower. Smoking hemp is therapeutic, but it can also be social, and a healthier option than smoking THC-laden marijuana or nicotine cigarettes.

RESTART 50 mg delta 8 THC gummies are some of the strongest on the market today. Most Delta 8 THC gummies come in 10 or 25 mg doses, so our 50 mg gummy is certainly higher than average.

You should experience a mellow high, and you may also notice a deep sense of calm, relaxation, and even heightened focus. You may feel more energized, too. Apart from these usual effects, delta-8 gummies may also increase your appetite and alleviate pain and inflammation.

The amount of time it takes largely depends on your method of consumption. For instance, if you are taking Delta 8 via an edible (such as a gummy), it might take between 60 to 90 minutes before your body can begin to digest and absorb it. After that, the effects should hit a peak and then last about 3 to 8 hours.

You can use delta 8 THC whenever you feel like it. Just one thing to note is that high doses can be a bit soporific (tends to induce drowsiness or sleep.)

There is a variety of Delta 8 brands and products on the market, but most with no real explanation on what the differences are. Moreover, many Delta 8 products are untested, and companies are legally bound to refrain from making claims about their products. It is up to the buyer or users to figure out what works for them. As for us, RESTART Delta 8 50MG and RESTART Delta 8 CBN gummies are the edible winners, followed by RESTART D8 Flower and D8 Vape.
