Celebrating Austin Chronicle’s 40th Anniversary! This is part of the Austin Chronic Fall line released by Grassroots Harvest.
A specific fusion of Delta 8 THC and CBG (Cannabigerol) is infused into this premium hemp flower. CBG is thought to be a highly beneficial cannabinoid, while Delta 8 THC is the federally legal cousin to Delta 9 THC, the cannabis compound that causes the ‘high’ sensation. That means Delta 8 THC is a bit weaker than Delta 9, while still having psychoactive effects.
What’s Delta 8 THC?
A cannabis compound that’s very similar to Delta 9 THC (the compound responsible for the ‘high’ feeling from cannabis, Delta 9 THC is federally illegal). Delta 8 THC is legal for sale in the U.S. due to the 2018 Farm Bill that legalized all hemp-derived cannabis compounds except for Delta 9 THC.
Because Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC are so similar, Delta 8 THC is able to provide similar (though slightly weaker) effects- mild euphoria, a sense of calm & relaxation, and a pleasant heady feeling are all characteristics of Delta 8 THC.
What is CBG?-
CBG is known as the ‘Parent Cannabinoid’. All cannabinoids, or cannabis compounds, start out as CBG & are converted to other cannabinoids (like CBD, CBN, & THC, for example) as the plant ages & matures.
CBG has a light affinity for CB1 and CB2 receptors, and what makes this plant so potent is that it’s able to interact with the entire Endocannabinoid System.
