CBD & Hemp
All CBD products start out the same way: as an extract from the leaves and flowers of cannabis plants. At 704 Hemp, we only extract CBD from hemp, defined as any variety of cannabis plant containing less than 0.3% THC by dry weight. Cannabinoids and terpenes are produced by tiny glands on the leaves and flowers of cannabis plants known as trichomes. The compounds produced by these trichomes give cannabis both its rich aroma and its nutraceutical effects.
We use US grown, certified hemp that is cultivated and processed according to the highest industry standards. To produce the most effective final product, we take what nature provides and turn it into quality, scientifically tested products you can trust. Our products have full traceability throughout the entire CBD supply chain that ensures each batch meets 704 Hemp standards for quality and consistency.
Yes, we do. CO2 extraction is widely considered the safest and most effective method to yield high quality CBD from hemp plants. Because CO2 is a gas at room temperature, 100% Of the solvent evaporates, leaving behind pure CBD with NO residual chemicals or pesticides. Although this method is expensive, this method is the industry's best practice for solvent-free extraction.
Absolutely we do. Each 704 Hemp product is tested at bulk formulation and the finished product stage, by two different 3rd party certified labs, to ensure quality, purity, and 0% THC before being distributed. Any manufacturer we choose to work with or carry their products goes through a ridgid quality assurance process before any product is brought in. Safety and quality are paramount for us. All products are infused with hemp grown and extracted in the USA, which enables us to provide the most consistent and finest CBD, Delta 8, and hemp derived products on the market.
Delta 8 THC
Delta 8 tetrahydrocannabinol is also referred to as Δ8THC. This occurs in cannabis plants. It is said to be the younger brother of it smore notorious brother, 𝝙9 THC. THC is the prime psychoactive component of cannabis.
This is formed in the plant as Delta 9 THC is oxidized. A part of it converts to an isomer and has a similar molecular structure. This is known as delta Delta 8 THC.
The component Delta 8 THC is also found in the CBD hemp flower. However, it is available in quite low concentration. This can be converted or extracted with the help of various cannabinoids. It can be prepared in a concentrated form and used in a multitude of ways.
Delta 8 THC is created in distillate form, as it is available in quite low amounts in the cannabis plants. A thick and translucent liquid is available after distillation and looks very similar to a CBD distillate. It involves a process that includes several steps in which the plant undergoes various levels of refinement. These include the process of extraction, then winterization, and finally decarboxylation.
This product or the distillate is available in syringes or cartridges. A weed pen can be used for vaporizing it. The user can mix it with the flower to enhance the Delta 8 THC potency level. As the distillate is edible (technically), one can consume it even orally. However, there is no research on what happens when delta-8 metabolizes in the body. Its effects are not known.
- Mixing with flower
- Sublingual use
It is known that Delta 8 THC can have built-in protection against abuse. Users who have this in excess can develop tolerance to mental ‘high’ quite fast.
Delta 8 THC is a significant cannabinoid because it can be used as a functional substitute for Delta 9 THC.
Delta 8 THC is quite important for many reasons. A main reason is its unique ability to work as a functional substitute for Delta 9 THC.
Delta 9 THC has several side effects and some of these are quite severe. This is one of the main reasons for the reluctance of its usage in some sections, and an increasing search for its substitute.
Some such negative side effects of Delta 9 THC include:
- Sleep issues
Delta 8 THC does not seem to have any of these side effects compared to Delta 9 THC. This is certainly quite significant for those who have benefitted from the medicinal use of Delta 9THC but are struggling with its side effects.
Delta 8 THC might have protection against abuse. If any user consumes D8 THC in excess amounts, there is a possibility of building a tolerance to a mental ‘high’. This tolerance is built quite fast. Thus, those who wish to have D8 THC regularly or recreationaly should consume it responsibly. Thus, those who need THC medicinally can now eliminate the ‘high’ feeling.
Ample research is yet to be conducted on Delta-8 THC. Currently, there are several patents for methods involving in the production of Delta 8 THC concentrates.
Side effects have always been a matter of concern, but in the case of Delta-8 THC, researchers have shown the side effects are largely insignificant. This is especially true when compared to traditinal pharmaceuticals that are easily available.
The initial research on Delta 8 THC appears to be quite promising. With improved technology and better plant genetics, it is possible to isolate Delta 8 THC. Many more uses and benefits are expected to be revealed.
The experiences usually differ from one person to another. Many people try to abstain from using it as they believe it might affect concentration levels. However, the majority of users mentioned that this doesn’t happen and concentration levels are not compromised in any way.
After ingesting Delta 8 THC, its effects are quite diminished and described as low key. The user does not lose any kind of focus or control. You can expect to work and even concentrate well while feeling its calming effect.
Technically yes, it is legal, but it has to be naturally extracted. Although you should check with your local or state legislation to make sure.
All CBD conversions are illegal according to DEA’s Interim Final Rule.
For many, Delta 8 THC is scary – thanks to everything we are trained to think about it over the years. Whenever people see THC, they assume it is illegal as THC is generally associated with marijuana. But, Delta-8 THC is legal in the majority of the States in the USA. It is federally legal as per the 2018 Farm Bill.
As per the 2018 Farm Bill, all derivatives, cannabinoids in hemp, and isomers are legal, if the final product contains <0.3% Delta 9 THC. It is to be noted here that Delta 8 THC is an isomer of CBD. This is a derivative of CBD and hemp. It is a cannabinoid that is present in hemp. It is contained in extracts but <0.3% Delta 9 THC.
The Farm Bill became law in 2018. As per this legislation, all derivatives of hemp that include analogs and cannabinoids are legal in the USA, but they should not have more than .3% THC or Delta 9 THC. With the passing of the law, many wellness brands started selling CBD products and different hemp derivatives in compliance with the law.
Users should know that their Delta 8 THC wellness product is legal as long as the ingredient is derived from hemp. Besides, the product will not have more than .3% Delta 9 THC.
Though Delta 8 THC is federally legal, there are a few states which have additional restrictions. These states include: Alaska, Colorado, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Montana, New York, Nevada, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, Utah, and Washington.
Delta-8 THC has several health & wellness benefits. It assists the brain in regulating neuronal messages. It helps in reducing memoryless. It can be an appetite stimulant and offers relief from pain. It is a great mood stabilizer and helps in conditions of depressions and anxiety. It does not cause any type of disorienting effect that happens with cannabinoids. Users of Delta 8 enjoy a calming effect.
