Where does Delta 8 THC come from?
Delta 8 THC comes from a strain of cannabis called “Chemdawg”. This strain was originally bred by Chemdawg Seed Company in the San Francisco area using Afghani, Colombian and Thai Sativa strains with some Columbian and Mexican Sativa genetics. The Chemdawg strain has a high THC content, but at the same time, it contains a high amount of another cannabinoid known as Cannabidiol (CBD). In order to get the highest possible concentration of THC, chemists are removing only the CBD from the cannabis plant.

What does it mean when Delta 8 THC is described as “non-psychoactive”?
Cannabis with a high content of Delta 8 THC has no psychoactive effects. Cannabis with high levels of Delta 9 THC is considered psychoactive, meaning it has the potential to produce a euphoric high or feeling of being “high”. It is also more likely to cause anxiety, paranoia and other negative side effects such as impaired motor control and coordination which can make driving unsafe or even impossible. As medical marijuana laws become increasingly liberalized, patients have the option of using non-psychotropic cannabis for their condition instead of having to smoke cannabis with high levels of CBD and low levels of THC. For patients who are unable to smoke Delta 8 THC because of its psychoactive effects we offer edibles or sprays that do not provide this euphoric experience but do provide an amazing pain relieving benefit for those who don’t want to feel high while they are treating their condition.
