You can buy Delta 8 edibles in Sweden now or any other European country if you search online. Delta 8 is gaining popularity at a rapid rate, thanks to the laws outlined in the 2018 Farm Bill of America.
Delta 8 is relatively new to the cannabis market with regards to the purchase of flower, oil, edibles and other by-products of this interesting cannabinoid. Delta 8's rapid rise to fame is because the American 2018 Farm Bill legalised it's use. Although mildly psychoactive, yes you read right, mildly psychoactive, it is lawful to cultivate and consume.
Under the 2018 Farm Bill, it is deemed that anything derived from hemp is legal, this includes Delta 8 THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).
The hemp plant has been around for centuries providing the planet with materials for every day use. It has given livelihoods to many with it's constant and consistent provision of important properties.
Production of consumables such as :
....and many more, give hemp it's versatile recognition.
Hemp is grown organically, quickly and yields are massive. In some parts of the world it grows wild and free. We are truly blessed that one of nature's gifts is used in a multitude of ways.
In addition to the commercial interest of hemp, we have the added bonus that it also provides us with medicinal properties. Probably the most renowned cannabinoid derived from hemp is CBD (cannabidiol). Recent years have seen CBD actually become a superstar when it comes to addressing health and well-being issues.
CBD is available on the high street and online in many forms. CBD flower, oil, edibles, pre-rolls, vapes, cartridges, personal care, and much more is accessible at our finger tips.
Delta 8 also addresses many ailments, whether physically or mentally, but with a gentle psychoactive kick into the bargain.
Although Delta 8 was discovered many years ago, in fact back in the 1940's, not a lot has been heard about it since. There has been some research and development, although this has been quite slow, and virtually unheard of.
Scientists who carried out studies found that Delta 8 was psychoactive. Although it is mildly psychoactive, unlike Delta 9 THC, which we are more familiar with.
It wasn't until Delta 8 was legalised, and subsequently the revelation that it was gently psychoactive, that it gained increasing interest.
Delta 9 THC is a derivative of the marijuana plant. It has been around for many years, and people associate the 'stoned' or 'couched' effect with Delta 9. It has mind-altering effects, and can make the user passive and lethargic. It can also instill anxiety and paranoia.
However, there are beneficial effects from using Delta 9 with health and well-being issues. It can address a plethora health conditions and is a proven pain reliever. It can also help with mental health conditions too.
Delta 9 is widely illegal, although in some countries it is allowed for medical use by way of a prescription. Largely though, it is illegal, and the penalties for abuse, i.e. supply, cultivation, and recreational use, can be quite severe depending on where in the world you are.
The psycho-activity of Delta 8 has been reported to be much milder than Delta 9. In fact Delta 8 has been proven to improve cognitive function. Instead of giving the 'stoned' effect associated with Delta 9, Delta 8 gives an alertness of the mind, and a clarity not seen before.
Delta 8 is similar to Delta 9 in that it has powerful healing properties, the difference being that daily functions are much easier with Delta 8, as it does not cloud the brain like the familiar Delta 9 effects.
The cannabis market has indeed been taken by storm in recent years with Delta 8. This is due to the awareness and legality the 2018 Farm Bill bestowed upon it. There is no doubt the legality of this newcomer cannabinoid has seen sales and demand sky rocket.
Similar to CBD, Delta 8 is available in many forms, such as flower, oil, edibles, vapes, cartridges, pre-rolls, personal care products, and many others.
