CBD, DELTA 8, THCO and HHC
What is CBD?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound in the cannabis plant with proven therapeutic benefits. It does not get you high, but it has been shown to be effective in treating a wide range of ailments, and there are currently numerous government-backed studies being conducted on its many uses. CBD can be paired with other parts of the cannabis plant to enhance or change its effects. That is often why you will see terpenes or other cannabinoids in our oils.
What is Delta 8 THC?
Delta-8 is a cannabis compound that has similarity to delta-9 THC.
Delta-8 THC can cause effects similar to regular delta-9 THC—but they will be much less potent. It exists naturally and can also be produced by converting CBD or Delta 9 THC via a chemical reaction typically using heat, catalysts, altered pH environments, and/or solvents.
What is THCO?
THCO is a new, cutting edge cannabinoid (derived from Hemp just like Delta 8) which carries psychoactive effects and euphoric feelings associated with the typical properties associated with cannabis use.
What is HHC (Hexahydrocannabinol)?
HHC is a cannabinoid found naturally in cannabis seeds and pollen. HHC is not THC, although it may have a similar effect. This makes it a hemp extract that is fully compliant with federal law.
What is the difference between THC and CBD?
No. Both cannabinoids act differently on the body. THC affects the brain, and causes a psychotropic high. CBD does not cause a psychotropic high.
What is the difference between Delta 8 THC and CBD?
CBD (cannabidiol) is the dominant cannabinoid in hemp. Delta 8 THC and CBD are not the same compound, they have different properties. But they are both cannabinoids, and they do have some things in common.
What is the difference between THCO and Delta 9 THC?
The main difference between THCO and Delta 9 THC is federal and state legality. THCO is fully federally legal, while Delta 9 THC is federally illegal and is illegal in most states. Both THCO and Delta 9 THC have a euphoric psychoactive effect on the user and provide a wide range of medical and recreational benefits.
What is the difference between CBD and THCO?
The difference between CBD (cannabidiol) and THCO (tetrahydrocannabinol) is that CBD does not have the psychoactive effects that THCO does. CBD can be used for a variety of health reasons, but it will never give consumers the psychoactive effects that THCO and Delta 9 provide. THCO carries most, if not all of CBD's benefits, but also introduces a "high" euphoria that is very beneficial for many users.
What's the difference between HHC & Delta 8 THC?
HHC and Delta 8 THC are quite similar, yet the two compounds are very different. Essentially, HHC is THC, meaning that the two compounds are relatively identical when it comes to their molecular structure.
However, HHC doesn’t contain any double bonds in its structure. That’s because, during the manufacturing process, hydrogenation breaks down and replaces the double bonds already found in THC. Also, Delta-8 lacks an ester atom and a carbon bond.
These molecular differences are what contribute to HHC’s greater stability and longer shelf life.
Now that you know more about HHC and Delta-8 THC and how they’re different, you might be wondering which is better. The answer will depend on your individual preferences. For example, if you prefer a stronger high, HHC may be the best choice. On the other hand, if you want to experience a more relaxing effect, Delta-8 THC may be the better option.
