What is Delta 8?
Delta 8 is a naturally occurring, psychoactive compound found in cannabis plants. This compound is similar in structure and the effects it produces to that of the more known Delta 9 THC, which is found in marijuana.
Some companies use chemicals to convert Delta 9 and CBD into Delta 8, while other ethical companies like PurWell source their Delta 8 from hemp plants in large quantities.
Due to it being found in hemp, Delta 8 is legal in most states and has been rising in popularity due to the similarities it shares with Delta 9, although some states have begun regulating it.

Delta 8 gummies are like your ordinary marijuana gummies, except instead of containing Delta 9 THC, they contain Delta 8 THC.
Some people use Delta 8 gummies recreationally, typically in states where marijuana is illegal, so they purchase the Delta 8 counterpart since it’s legal and produces a similar effect.

How Long Do Delta 8 Gummies Stay In Your System?
