Delta-9 THC derived from hemp is legal in Florida. Unlike THC delta-9, THC delta-8 is not likely to test positive for THC in a drug test, unless the test specifically looks for the delta-8 metabolites of THC. Despite their similarities, delta-8 THC and delta-9 THC also have important differences that you should understand before consuming either substance. The full-spectrum production method also allows producers to develop products that contain delta-9 THC within the federal legal limit, adjusting the ratio between delta-9 THC and other cannabinoids and the dry weight of the resulting product to obtain the appropriate proportions, allowing it to be legally sold throughout the country, even if their state of residence has laws that prohibit the sale of THC products derived from cannabis.
This means that in the rest of the states, Delta 8 THC is legal or regulated in the same way as recreational marijuana.
Delta 9THC is found naturally in the cannabis plant and can be found at lower levels in hemp varieties. Meanwhile, overstimulation of CB1 receptors through excessive consumption of delta-8 THC or delta-9 THC can cause lethargy, disorientation, anxiety (and, potentially, panic), dry mouth and eyes, increased heart rate and loss of coordination, adds Dr. With 15 mg of hemp-derived delta-9 THC and 50 mg of hemp-derived delta-8 THC per piece, The Hemp Doctor recommends that consumers “proceed with caution with these gummies because of the high potency of the THC it presents.
In short, it is impossible to say with certainty that delta-8 THC does not give a positive result in a drug screening test, since it depends on the quality and content of the specific THC delta-8 product used, as well as the type of drug test being performed. Depending on quality, quantity and other factors, both delta-8 and delta-9 THC can produce intoxicating psychoactive effects, or a “high”. Both delta-8 THC and delta-9 THC are composed of the same set of elements (carbon, hydrogen and oxygen) and only differ slightly in the arrangement of those elements, says Dr. Delta-8 THC and delta-9 THC come from the cannabis sativa plant, which naturally produces more than 100 cannabinoids or active components.
Research on the long-term use of delta-9 THC and its effects on sleep is limited; some studies show an improvement in sleep patterns and others indicate that chronic consumption of delta-9 THC may have the opposite effect, since it disrupts sleep and delays the onset of sleep. That said, the laws surrounding the production, sale, and use of delta-8 THC and delta-9 THC are constantly evolving. With the proportion restriction that states that federally legal hemp products do not contain more than 0.3% of delta-9 of THC per dry weight, many producers currently choose to eliminate delta-9 THC completely from their extracts or downplay a smaller auxiliary part of full-spectrum products. According to the FDA, products with delta-8 THC may contain potentially harmful chemicals or contaminants, including household chemicals that are used during the chemical synthesis process that produces delta-8 THC.
