“I can’t smoke anymore, or can’t smoke like I used to. Weed/THC makes me paranoid and anxious now.”

This is something we hear all too often and, thanks to 2020, many of us have had to scale our THC intake back quite a bit. The fact that cannabis strains come so readily packed with ridiculously high percentages of delta-9 THC can put some of us in a bad state. 

Paranoia, anxiety, sweating, a rapid heart rate, and other negative symptoms can be all too familiar for some people when it comes to the potent weed on the market in this day and age.

Fortunately, there’s a THC out there less potent than the strong stuff; a THC that still gets you high, but doesn’t make you feel like you’re losing control, known as delta-8 THC. 

There’s also a cannabinoid out there that helps stimulate all the benefits that come with weed, like relaxation, anti-nausea, and more: CBD. Non-psychoactive, CBD can’t get you high, to begin with.

So, what’s the best way to avoid the paranoia that comes from pot?

The answer is to use delta-8 THC and CBD instead. You still get to enjoy the high that comes from THC, but scaled way back, so the creeping feelings of anxiety and paranoia don’t ever have to sink in. 

Researchers actually have observed that delta-8 doesn’t bind to our CB receptors at the same intensity that delta-9 does. They believe this is what may allow people to experience a high with delta-8 without the negative symptoms that are sometimes experienced from delta-9.

Instead of a THC-fueled distraction of a high that leaves you dazed and confused, those that get high on delta-8 report still feeling focused and motivated to go about their day. 

Rather than feeling couch-locked and out of control, feel a mellow chill wash over without breaking stride.

Combine that with CBD, and people feel truly empowered to take on their day. It’s the biggest reason we offer both CBD, delta-8, and combination products of the two. Take our CBD and delta-8 THC tincture, for example. It contains a gently powerful array of full-spectrum CBD and delta-8 THC in one bottle. 

Maybe you’re looking for broad-spectrum CBD oils that are completely free of THC or you want a combination. Our diverse line of hemp products helps us accommodate any of your needs.
