Delta-9 Superior to Delta-8

Why is Delta-9 Superior to Delta-8?

Delta-8 is a legally synthesized version of Delta-9 THC. 

  • What is the difference between Delta-8, Delta-9, THCa, and THC-O?

    • Short answer: Delta-8 and THC-O are forms of synthesized THC. We distill and infuse these into our products. While Delta-9 and THCa are naturally occurring. Delta-9 is also a psychoactive cannabinoid in legal marijuana.
      • Legality questions: According to the federal 2018 farm bill, THC is legal when served less than 0.3% by weight. Currently, in TN, this law only applies to Delta-9 THC but will be changing at the end of this year. Fortunately, our products already comply with state and federal law. However, this is why we continued to expand into other forms of THC. Like Delta-8 and THC-O, so we can continue to deliver our state and federally legal Delta-9 products and a wide variety of other edibles, vape cartridges, and flower that are just as potent.
      • How do they make you feel? Delta-8 and THC-O will give you more of a Sativa or energetic feel, with THC-O being a more potent option. Delta-9 and THCa will provide you with more of a traditional, Indica, body-high feeling.

Delta-8 is not naturally produced in large enough quantities to be psychoactive in hemp and, therefore, must be applied/sprayed/infused onto the plant.

Delta 9 is the naturally occurring psychoactive cannabinoid in marijuana. An excellent analogy for this is brewing decaffeinated coffee and adding caffeinated creamer. 

At Craft Cannabis™, we grow top-shelf, premium hemp flower and infuse the cannabis with our Delta-8 blend of terpenes.

For non-legal states, delta 8 became a great option as it could achieve a “high” feeling while still being legal. However, because no licenses are needed to distribute delta-8, some distributors were selling marijuana under the guise of being delta 8. (one of the reasons delta-8 regulations are imposing at the state level) or dealing hemp with unreliable potency/chemicals.

Not all delta-8 is terrible, but testing and COA’s are of the utmost importance. Please refer to our website for more information.

We don’t primarily focus on delta-8 at Craft Cannabis™ (though we supply it) but rather promote our THCa/Delta-9 blend products. THCa and Delta-9 are naturally occurring cannabinoids in marijuana, but Delta-9 is the psychoactive component.

Delta 9 is the real stuff! Not only do we grow and press it just miles from where you’re purchasing, but let’s not forget… you are LEGALLY purchasing REAL THC right here in Tennessee. 

Our legal seed-to-shelf operation’s quality of handcraft, COA’s, and surety are worth the price.
