What is Delta-8-THC?

Updated: Aug 11, 2020

Even though neither of us can probably say it correctly, and would qualify for the final round of the ESPN spelling bee, you’re probably familiar with Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC-D9). Marijuana is bred for THC-D9 because of the high consumers receive from it. Because of that, there are state and federal regulations and because we’ve focused on breeding cannabis for THC-D9, the potency has increased dramatically. Although THC-D9 is the primary psychoactive ingredient in cannabis that provides the high, there are over 100 other cannabinoids flying under the radar that few people talk about. We’re specifically excited about Delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC-D8 derived from hemp which is federally legal as of 2018 and legal in 40 states.

What does this all mean? Basically what we’ve done is find a way to produce THC-D8 and now understanding the outcomes it can provide. Is it a loophole? Maybe. Is it Savvy? Definitely.

D8 consumers report a body buzz without the drowsiness AND without the strong head buzz commonly experienced by D9 consumers. This is ideal for active lifestyles that don’t have the time to get absolutely ripped out of their mind for hours at a time.

As someone who has consumed both (humble brag), D8 and D9 are different and should be treated as such. D8 provides a recreational, “diet” version of psychoactive cannabis to active, casual users. We have a few company guinea pigs (me being one of them) and since I’ve started smoking Savvy D8 cartridges, I haven’t smoked D9 since. I don’t need to for medical reasons, but there are days where I get easily irritated or wake up on the wrong side of the bed and have things to do that I’d really like to enjoy doing. A couple of puffs of my D8 cartridge and I’m good.

Krystilion will be launching Savvy a D8 and unique cannabinoid focused brand. Mid-July 2020 three different flavored D8 of cartridges will be available. Sign-up to be one of the first to know when they become available.
