Delta 8 THC: "Cannabis Lite in Louisiana"


Have you ever wondered, "Is Delta-8 THC legal in Louisiana?", "What is Delta-8 THC?", or "Can Delta-8 THC get me 'high'?" You are not alone. Plenty of people are wondering, “what makes Delta-8 so different from Delta-9?” and “is it even worth trying?”


Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as delta-8 THC, is a psychoactive substance found in the Cannabis sativa plant, of which marijuana and hemp are two varieties. Delta-8 THC is one of over 100 cannabinoids produced naturally by the cannabis plant but is not found in significant amounts in the cannabis plant. As a result, concentrated amounts of delta-8 THC are typically manufactured from hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD).


Molecular Structure Difference


Delta-8 THC is an isomer of Delta -9 THC. This means that the Delta-8 THC has the same chemical formula as Delta-9 THC, but it has a slight difference in molecular structure. This slight molecular difference is what makes the "high" of Delta-8 THC slightly less potent than that of Delta-9 THC.


Is Delta-8 THC Legal in Louisiana?


Yes, Delta-8 THC is legal in Louisiana. Instead of banning the cannabinoid like some states have, Louisiana has decided to regulate Delta-8 THC through the Alcohol, Tobacco, and Control Board and The Louisiana Department of Health. Currently, Delta-8 THC products are permitted to be sold to those 18 years of age and older.
