What are Delta 8 THC Gummies? 

Pure Peace CBD’s Delta 8 THC gummies are potent THC products made from tetrahydrocannabinol - or Delta 8 THC, for short! This product delivers a natural high that calms and soothes the body while alleviating pain. These gummies come in a wide variety of flavors, including Blue Raspberry, Blue Watermelon, Cherry, Creamsicle, Grape, Green Apple, Orange, Pineapple, Strawberry, Strawberry Banana.


What is Delta 8 THC? 

Delta 8 THC is a naturally occurring cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. Delta 8 is classified as a “minor cannabinoid” - meaning it has lower concentrations of the potent cannabis plant. While Delta 8 THC is classified as a minor cannabinoid, it does have several therapeutic effects. 


What are the Benefits of Delta 8 THC?

Like Delta 9 THC, Delta 8 can relieve many symptoms of common ailments. According to Professor Raphael Mechoulam, who began studying cannabis in the 60s, Delta 8 THC can relieve anxiety, stress, and even nausea from cancer treatments. As always, it is essential to consult your primary care provider before using any THC product. 


Wait, What’s Delta 9 THC? What’s the Difference Between Delta 8 and 9?

Delta 8 and 9 are classified as cannabinoids - or natural chemicals found in the cannabis plant. Delta 9 THC is what gets users high and is considered the primary psychoactive ingredient in most THC products. Delta 9 produces this high by binding molecules to the body’s cannabinoid receptors.

Unlike Delta 9 THC, which composes the majority of a cannabis plant, Delta 8 is released when Delta 9 compounds oxidize. Delta 9 THC will, in turn, degrade into Delta 8 THC. There’s also another major difference between the two cannabinoids- Delta 8 THC binds to the 8th carbon chain, while Delta 9 THC binds to the 9th carbon chain.

Essentially, this means that Delta 8 THC gummies are less potent than the Delta 9 compound. Delta 8 provides a gentle high that doesn’t leave you feeling stoned or groggy but alleviates common ailments, just like Delta 9. 

Pure Peace CBD’s Delta 8 THC gummies contain 25 mg of Delta 8 THC and are derived from Hemp. For more information about Pure Peace CBD’s Delta 8 THC gummies, please visit our product page.


How Should I Dose my Delta 8 Gummies? How Long Will it Take to Feel High? 

That depends on your experience with THC products! New users should start with ½ a gummy and adjust as needed. More experienced users can use an online cannabis calculator to find their perfect dose. Keep in mind that Delta 8 THC is weaker than Delta 9, and it may take up to 45 minutes to feel the effects. If you don’t feel the effects of our Delta 8 THC gummies instantly, do not take more. Simply wait for the gummies to kick in and enjoy the ride!
