Delta 8 is different from the THC that is often mentioned in a conversation about cannabis. When we think of THC, it usually means delta-9-THC, the main form of THC found in cannabis. Delta 8 is an analog of delta-9-THC, a molecule with a similar structure, but derived from hemp and with some notable differences. It is one of many cannabinoids in the cannabis plant, and it differs from its better-known relative only by a slight variation in the molecular structure. Delta 8 occurs naturally in the cannabis plant, but in much smaller quantities.Our team was able to extract Delta 8 distillate from the cannabis plant to formulate a new type of cannabis seltzer we are calling an "Enhanced Seltzer™."
We love LOKI because of our unique Delta 8 formulation and how it enhances our sense of creativity and inspiration. Unlike most alcohol- and hemp-based seltzers on the market which leave a weird aftertaste in your mouth, LOKI cannabis seltzer tastes and makes you feel great (during and after)! On how LOKI makes you feel, imagine a more social mindset and a less intense experience than consuming the well-known Delta-9-THC cannabinoid. The Delta 8 used in LOKI's Enhanced Seltzers™️ has lower psychotropic qualities than Delta 9-THC, potentially promoting a calmer, more focused, and clear-headed experience. Our cannabis seltzer is a low-key, full-on experience (see what we did there)?
Yes! According to the 2018 Farm Bill, all derivatives of hemp (cannabinoids, analogs, etc.) are completely legal in the United States as long as they do not contain more than 0.3% THC (Delta-9-THC to be specific). Because our Delta 8 canna seltzer is derived from hemp and contains non-detectable levels of Delta-9-THC, it's legal.
Delta 8 is metabolized by the body in the same way as the more common Delta-9-THC, so be mindful if you need to pass a drug test. While Delta 8 is not what is commonly referred to as THC, many common urine drug tests check for THC metabolites and not specific cannabinoids. This product contains Delta 8 and can cause intoxication.
