What is Delta 8?
We love cannabis and hemp for so many reasons, but most of the time it comes down to the plants diverse variety of cannabinoids and terpenes. From cannabinoids like cannabiderol [CBD] to cannabigerol [CBG] and the infamous tetrahydrocannabinol [THC] we don't discriminate here at Ladies of Paradise.
Which is why we were very intrigued by something seemingly new that is hitting the market, Delta 8.
Delta 8 is a minor cannabinoid that is found in both cannabis and hemp. Unlike its sister cannabinoid Delta 9, which is what gets you high in the cannabis plant Delta 8 has varying effects. Because this minor cannabinoid can come from hemp plants, it is legal and can be found online and in headshops. Delta 8 does not have the same psychotropic effects, yet some people say they feel high from taking Delta 8.
Ladies of Paradise Owner and Creative Director Harlee Case tried it out and tells us about her experience:
I was delightfully surprised the first time I had a Delta 8 gummy. I was expecting more of a mild CBD experience but that is not what I was met with. I took 50mg of Delta 8 which was definitely a larger dose and felt it within 30 minutes. I drifted into a dreamy euphoric state of mind with ease. We were curled up on the couch watching a beautifully made movie. I found myself very grateful for the present moment. I highly recommend Delta 8 gummies!
Each of us has a completely different and unique endocannabinoid system which is what makes cannabis so cool! It is literally different for every single person! And when we start playing with new minor cannabinoids like Delta 8 or even major cannabinoids like CBG these have different effects on each person. Some feel high while others just feel relaxed and blissed out.
We can't wait until all parts of the cannabis plant are legal and we are able to test, try and research every cannabinoid and the range of effects it has on a range of people!
