Much interest has been seen around CBD and its potential related to health benefits.

What Is Delta-8-THC?
Delta 8 is a powerful cannabinoid derived from the cannabis sativa L (hemp) plant and has a uplifting feeling of relaxation, body sensations, and clear-headedness. Delta 8 THC is an extremely important cannabinoid specifically due to its ability to serve as a more functional substitute for Delta 9 THC.
Delta-8-THC is an analog of delta-9-THC, a molecule with a similar structure, but some notable differences. While the two share many similar properties, delta-8-THC tends to exhibit a lower psychotropic potency than delta-9-THC.
Delta 8 THC is an extremely viscous oil and exists in an “activated” state similar to Delta 9 THC, meaning it does not need to be decarboxylated to feel its effects.
It exists naturally and can also be produced by converting CBD or Delta 9 THC via a chemical reaction typically using heat, catalysts, altered pH environments, and/or solvents. It is commonly abbreviated as Delta 8 THC, Δ8THC, Δ8, D8, D8 THC, and D8THC.
What does broad spectrum mean?
A broad spectrum CBD oil contains many of the active phytochemicals found in hemp plants, excluding the euphoria-inducing THC compound. This greater variety of active ingredients provides a greater variety of properties than a CBD isolate oil could provide.
What does full spectrum mean?
A full spectrum oil uses all of the hemp plant’s active phytonutrients and small amounts (less than 0.3%) of THC. This combination of CBD with other phytonutrients, terpenes, and cannabinoids creates something known as the entourage effect in which the compounds work together.
Is your brand Certified Organic?
As of September 1st, 2020 all of the Joy Organic branded products of CBD, have been certified as organic, by the USDA. Which means we are allowed to use the official USDA Certified Organic seal on our products.
Will I get high from CBD Products?
NO. You will not get high from our CBD products. Our products are either THC Free, or contain 0.3% or less of THC Delta 9.
Can Delta-8-THC get you high like Delta-9 THC?
Delta-8 will certainly get you high, but not necessarily like Delta-9 THC. According to the National Cancer Institute, Delta-8 THC exhibits “lower psychotropic potency” than Delta-9 and might bind with brain’s receptors differently than Delta-9, thereby explaining the variation of effects.
As such, consumers have reported feeling less intense psychoactive effects with Delta-8 THC. But still noticeable. Delta-8 users experience appetite stimulation, and euphoria–just not as intensely as they do from THC.
Are your products legal in all 50 states?
YES. All our products are sourced from industrial hemp grown in the USA. All CBD & Delta 8 THC products are federally legal under the 2018 Farm Bill.
Will I fail a drug test if I use your products?
Passing or failing a drug test using CBD products all depends on the lab testing the samples. Although our products contain less than 0.3% THC it is still possible for a false positive.
