What Is Delta 8 THC? A New Hemp Cannabinoid That Gets You High

Posted in Journalism, and Ministry of Hemp

Delta 8, or Delta-8-THC, is a new supplement that hemp brands are making from CBD. But unlike CBD, Delta 8 will make you feel high.

Delta 8 supplements are a new class of product that are rapidly flooding the hemp market. While you may see them sold from brands that also sell CBD, these products create a very distinct sensation. Consumers that try Delta 8 feel stoned, making this more like psychoactive cannabis (“marijuana”) than CBD.

Because these supplements come from legal industrial hemp, Delta 8 supplements may be legal to possess anywhere in the United States. Many experts think this is a legal loophole that the government will close very soon.

Smoking hemp can be relaxing and calming, even pain relieving, and pre-rolls (“joints”) or hemp cigarettes make this experience even more convenient. That’s why we selected the best CBD pre-rolls for your enjoyment.

When we started this website, it was hard to even find CBD oil. Nowadays, there’s been an explosion in CBD products with thousands available on the market. Hemp flower is an especially fast-growing category. Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, you can legally smoke hemp anywhere in the U.S. Many websites and stores now sell hemp in both “loose flower” (nuggets of smokable hemp) or pre-rolled hemp cigarettes (hemp joints or CBD pre-rolls). Some brands also now make cigarette style hemp smokes, which resemble the tobacco version but with less harmful contents.

Fake CBD, CBD Scams & Other Bad Ideas

Posted in Journalism, and Ministry of Hemp

Though there are hundreds of quality products available, the CBD market is flooded with scams, frauds, misleading products and just plain bad ideas.

Currently, the CBD market is completely unregulated. Almost anyone with some capital can get into the CBD business, and there’s been a glut of raw materials (raw hemp extract) available at falling prices over the past year, especially if you’re not too picky about the quality.

While we normally focus on the positive aspects of the industry, and the highest quality CBD products, we also think it’s important to warn our readers … and put pressure on the hemp industry to do better.

Why Hemp Supporters Must Support Black Lives Matter, Too

Posted in Journalism, and Ministry of Hemp

Over at Ministry of Hemp, I wrote about our feelings about the current Black Lives Matter uprising and how it ties to the hemp and cannabis industries:

In this time of extraordinary global protest, hemp advocates and the hemp industry must live up to our ideals by supporting the Black Lives Matter movement and working towards real change.

Going even further, our involvement can’t stop with just the protests. In order to build an ethical and sustainable industry, we need to be active participants in undoing the damage that the War on Drugs caused. We need to lobby to defund police forces which grew out of control during this “war.”
