Delta 8 Moonrocks
Moon rocks are a full-spectrum cannabis extract containing all the cannabinoids in the plant. Since the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp and its derivative, like Delta-8, have become legal on a federal level. Thanks to scientific advancements, Delta 8 THC can be extracted from hemp in the form of CBD, so it’s considered federally legal as long as it contains 0.3% of delta 9 THC or less. However, some states have now specifically outlawed Delta 8. Make sure you check with your own local laws to see what rules apply to you.
Delta-8: What is it?
While delta 9 is naturally occurring in large amounts, delta 8 is only found in trace amounts. Both activating a CB1 and CB2 receptors, they help the endocannabinoid system keep things like mood, memory, sleep, pain, and appetite in check. While delta 9 has a higher affinity to the CB1 receptor than delta 8, creating less of a psychoactive experience with Delta 8.
Effects of Delta 8
Delta 9 (marijuana) is stronger. However, CB1 receptors trigger anxiety and paranoia that some people feel with Delta 9, often making Delta 8 a better choice. With that being said, you should never drive or operate heavy machinery while under the influence of any kind of THC.
Delta 8 users describe the feeling as:
- Increased body awareness
- Body Buzz
- Increased Focus
Delta 8 health Effects
Delta 8 has a long list of health benefits! It’s been shown to reduce nausea, pain, vomiting, and appetite loss while protecting nerve cells and improving mood.
Delta 8 Side Effects
One of the most common mistakes that people make when they are trying out Delta 8 for the first time is taking too much. Too much Delta 8 may cause dry mouth, dizziness, muscle impairment, reduced motor control, vomiting, sleep, and change in sensory perception. In most cases, the best thing to do if you have had too much Delta 8 is to sleep it off. Taking CBD is also known to counteract the effects of Delta 8. However, you should get medical attention if side effects go above a bad hangover type feel.
Delta 8 Dosage
If you have never taken any kind of THC before, we suggest a starting dose of 10-25mg. Wait at least 45 minutes before redosing. The effects from Delta 8 can last anywhere from 2-12 hours depending on the person and how much was administered
