You have definitely heard of the National Stoner Holiday, 4/20. You have probably heard about National Dab Day, 7/10. We couldn’t help but notice there was no love given to Delta 8 THC! Since we over at Hometown Hero think Delta 8 definitely deserves its own holiday, we went ahead and made one! This December 8th, we present you with the new cannabis holiday, Delta 8 Day!
What is Delta 8 Day?
Delta 8 Day is something truly special to us as we have been planning since the very first week we started selling our best-selling blueberry Delta 8 Gummies! We believe that Delta 8 THC is something truly special that every fan of cannabis (or even potential fan) should hear about and try for themselves as it is a fantastic little compound with so many great benefits. Of course, we choose the date December 8th because... well, D-8! Plus, with the stress of the holiday season in full effect, could there really be a better date to relax a bit?
We are using the holiday of Delta 8 Day to spread awareness about this federally legal marijuana alternative and encourage other distributors, influencers, and cannabis entertainment websites to do the same! If we all work together, we could successfully see the emergence of a new cannabis holiday!
How do you celebrate Delta 8 Day?
Well, the easiest way to celebrate Delta 8 Day is by taking D8 (safely of course), getting comfy, and just having a nice relaxing day! If you need some Delta 8, check out our variety of Delta 8 THC products, as we really do have something for everyone and ship safely and discreetly right to your front door!
If you want to take this budding holiday one step farther, help us spread the word about how great Delta 8 really is! Go out and tell your family, friends, neighbors, even your mailman about the numerous benefits and versatility of this amazing cannabinoid! Hell, don’t be afraid to even tweet about it! No really, post about it! Tag us @HometownHeroCBD and we will even share some of your Delta 8 Day posts!
We want to thank you in advance for helping us spread the word about Delta 8, and are extremely excited to see how much this holiday takes off and our planning on continuing this tradition each and every year from now on. The future's looking bright!

What is Delta 8 THC?
Delta 8 THC is a unique cannabinoid found organically in the hemp plant that has seen a huge spike in popularity over the last year due to its promising applications in both the medical and recreational fields.
While Delta 8 THC might feature properties familiar to Delta 9 THC, the intoxicating compound found in marijuana, it has completely different effects and generally less potency.

What are the effects of Delta 8 THC?
Delta 8 THC exhibits “lower psychotropic potency” due to the fact that it binds differently to the brain’s CB receptors compared to the likes of Delta 9 THC. This of course meaning it does not exhibit that strong, overwhelming “high” feeling users describe when consuming Delta 9 THC, instead, a focused and calming experience.
Customers themselves describing the feeling as calming yet energizing, inspirational for creative thinking, and creating a perfect sense of relief. You can check out all of our five-star reviews for yourself across our website to see how others feel!

Is Delta 8 THC synthetic?
Delta 8 THC occurs organically in the hemp plant and is by no means a synthetic product. Synthetic alternatives to cannabis and marijuana like K2 (or spice) are man-made, unsafe products that can actually impact your brain in a more powerful way than your traditional cannabis. Synthetic marijuana’s effects are unpredictable and sometimes even life-threatening and dangerous.

Is Delta 8 THC legal?
A common question that everyone asks: is this Delta 8 stuff even legal in my state? Well, the good news is under the 2018 Farm Bill Delta 8 THC is federally legal, as it does not fit the definition of marijuana under the Controlled Substance Act and is organically derived from the legal hemp plant.
Just because something is federally legal though does not mean it is available for purchase nationwide, as some states chose to ban these products under their local and state laws. But don’t worry! We took the time to make a state-by-state breakdown for y’all on whether or not Delta 8 THC is legal in your state! Just click the link below.

What is the difference between Delta 9 and Delta 8 THC?
To put it simply, Delta 8 THC and Delta 9 THC are two different compounds both found organically in the hemp plant and while the two compounds are familiar, they have different effects and less potency.
Delta 8 THC is perfect for those who don’t want the complete, sometimes intense, psychoactive effects that can come from consuming Delta 9 THC, aka marijuana. Instead, Delta 8 THC brings its users calming and uplifting effects that affect the brain’s CB receptors differently.
