What Are They?

These cigarettes are similar to a standard normal cigarette, however, they stand apart by being filled with hemp flower, usually being 100% hemp flower, instead of tobacco which standard cigarettes are filled with.

This means that Delta 8 THC cigarettes are also completely nicotine free, so you do not have to worry about nicotine consumption, and they contain around somewhere under 0.3% of Delta 9 THC.

If you are unsure what Delta 8 THC is, this is a cannabinoid which is completely naturally occurring and you can get it from some plants which are in the Cannabaceae family, other plants in this family include both hemp and cannabis.

As previously mentioned, this THC is completely naturally occurring and you can get it by either converting Delta 9 THC, or by converting CBD by using a chemical reaction triggered through using catalysts, heat, a change in pH environment, or alternatively, a solvent.

Similarly to Delta 9, this THC also exists within an activated state, this means you will not need to make it decarboxylated to actually feel the effects of it.

Will They Get You High?

Since Delta 8 THC is a version of THC you will get some psychotropics, in spite of this, the effects of the psychotropics are perceived as a bit less mild than psychotropics you will get from Delta 9 THC.

Still, considering this Delta 8 THC cigarettes will be able to make you feel high, however, the specific effects of this THC will vary depending on who is smoking it.

If you want to know what specifics effects are felt by users of Delta 8 THC, the main effects felt are; a mood boost, an increase in relaxation and a calm feeling, the pain from aches is less felt, users occasionally sleep better, and appetite is often increased as well.

Delta-8 THC Vs. Delta-9 THC

These two types of THC have been compared quite frequently, so are they the same thing, and how similar are they. The chemical structure of both Delta 8 THC and Delta 9 THC is incredibly similar which is why they are labelled so similarly and often compared.

Both of these cannabinoids have a similar double bonded layout, however this structure is differentiated in how their defining double bonds are located at a different point on the chain which forms the THC.

Since Delta 8 THC has a unique structure, this means that it will react differently within the body, specifically within the ECS of the body being the endocannabinoid system, and this is what makes it react differently from Delta 9 THC.

In contrast, Delta 9 THC will bind straight onto the cannabinoid receptors which are in the ECS, while the Delta 8 THC will not have this same reaction meaning that your body will react differently to these different types of THC.

Because of this Delta 8 THC is well known for the less intoxicating effects it has, especially in comparison to Delta 9 THC. While this is something which is generally understood by users of the THC, further studies do need to be done on this specific subject.

At the time of writing, using Delta 8 THC cigarettes is legal in most of the states in the US. This is because Delta 8 THC is a type of THC, but is not seen as exactly the same thing.

This is because of Delta 8 THC is made from hemp, and since most products which are derived from hemp will contain under 0.3% of Delta 9 THC, they are treated as legal.

So, while there is the 2018 farm bill which has made it so hemp derivatives, with Delta 8 THC coming under this umbrella, have been legalized, there are still some states in the US which have attempted to try and restrict the use of Delta 8 THC.

This is why you should check the specific laws of your state, and sometimes even your county since local governments can change rules in their precinct sometimes. 

It is worth noting that you will be able to find some products which contain Delta 8 THC which have been derived from standard cannabis, and these will definitely not be legal in most states compared to standard Delta 8 THC.
