Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol, aka “Delta 8” or simply “D8,” is a psychoactive substance found in the Cannabis sativa plant. D8 is one of over 100 cannabinoids produced naturally by the cannabis plant but is not found in significant amounts in any currently bred cultivars. As a result, concentrated amounts of delta-8 THC are typically manufactured from hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD).
THC-O is an acetylated version of Delta-8 THC. Basically, acetylation occurs when the Delta-8 is combined with a pharmaceutical-grade reagent that makes the Delta-8 more easily absorbed by your body, giving typically a far greater effect than regular Delta-8. This is the exact same process that takes willow bark, a source of salicylic acid, and transforms it into aspirin.
Hexahydrocannabinol, or HHC for short, is a hydrogenated version of Delta-8. Hydrogenation is a process that improves stability and shelf-life of Delta-8. And since HHC technically isn’t a “THC”, it is 100% legal in places where THC variants have been outlawed.
Delta-9 THC is the predominant cannabinoid that provides the “high” from cannabis. The 2018 Farm Bill specifically defines hemp as any cultivar of cannabis that contains no more than .3% Delta-9 THC. This .3% or less Delta-9 content also applies to packaged goods so long as the source of Delta-9 THC is hemp. So, for example, our Delta-9 Gummies each weigh 5g and contain 12mg of Delta-9 THC per gummy. This makes the total concentration of Delta-9 at .24%, complying with the Federal regulations for hemp-derived Delta-9 THC. And as long as the Delta-9 comes from hemp, no medical card is needed. Twisted Brands sells exclusively hemp-derived Delta-9 THC products.
The short answer is: Yes…well, maybe. Our bodies metabolize Delta-8 THC in the same way it does its federally-illegal cousin Delta-9 THC and since drug tests test for the metabolites of drugs and not the actual drug themselves, you may test positive for THC after consuming a product containing Delta-8 THC, THCO, or any analogue thereof. Many factors come into play with how long cannabinoids remain in the system including dosage, method of administration, frequency of use, body composition, etc.
