What are the health benefits of CBD, Delta-8, Delta-9, and
Unfortunately, we are not at liberty to discuss any potential health benefits of hemp-derived cannabinoids or blends (CBD, Delta-8, Delta-9, and Select Spectrum). We encourage our customers to do their own research and consult a medical professional for these types of matters.
How old do I have to be to buy Hometown Hero's products?
You must be 21 years of age to purchase anything from our website. This includes our CBD, Delta-8, Delta-9, and Select Spectrum products. We use an age verification system called Bluecheck which can confirm your age.
A small number of customers may have to submit their date of birth or pictures of their photo ID to complete their purchase. This could be due to different billing/shipping information, a recent change of address, not using your legal name, or having a new last name through marriage.
What is Delta-8?
Delta-8 is a form of tetrahydrocannabinol or "THC" that is derived from hemp. It is a cannabinoid known to bring on mild euphoria, relaxation, and a general sense of well-being.
Is Delta-8 legal?
Because Delta-8 is derived from hemp, it is legal on a federal level and in many states. State laws can vary, and you can always check out our map to see if Delta-8 is available in your state!
Where does Delta-8 come from?
Our Delta-8 comes from hemp. Our process begins with a CO2 extraction process that separates raw cannabinoids from plant matter. It is from those cannabinoids in which we derive our Delta-8.
Would Delta-8 make me fail a drug test?
Full panel drug tests or ones specifically trying to detect marijuana detect the chemicals in your body used to break down THC. There isn't much research out there to draw a definite conclusion on failing a drug test because of Delta-8. We highly advise that you avoid any cannabis products if you have a drug test coming up.
What is Select Spectrum?
Select Spectrum is a hemp-derived cannabidiol blend featuring CBD, Delta-9 THC, and other minor cannabinoids. Each Select Spectrum product features a 1:1 ratio of CBD to Delta-9 THC. The blend was curated for the ideal entourage effect.
Is Select Spectrum legal?
Our hemp-derived Select Spectrum blend is legal on a federal level and in all 50 states. We have an active Select Spectrum Legal Map you can also check for the latest updates on legal status.
Where does Select Spectrum come from?
The Select Spectrum blend comes directly from hemp, with a CO2 extraction process. Then minor adjustments are made to help promote the entourage effect.
Would Select Spectrum make me fail a drug test?
Full panel and marijuana drug tests were designed before the 2018 Farm Bill. These tests detect metabolites of Delta-9 THC. They cannot discern if the metabolites broke down legal, hemp-derived Delta-9 THC or Delta-9 THC from marijuana. We advise that you avoid cannabis products if you have a drug test coming up.
What is CBD?
CBD stands for "cannabidiol," a highly prevalent cannabinoid that can be found in hemp. Unlike Delta-8 THC or Select Spectrum, the effects of CBD are not as pronounced, but for many enthusiasts, it helps take a “slight edge off.”
Is CBD legal?
CBD from hemp is legal on a federal level, though some states have banned it in certain circumstances. CBD might be illegal in a state, but the Select Spectrum blend is not.
Where does CBD come from?
CBD is derived from hemp directly through a process called CO2 extraction. This is the same process used to make organic decaf coffee.
Would CBD make me fail a drug test?
CBD is not THC. However, some CBD products, such as full-spectrum CBD, can contain small amounts of Delta-9 THC. There's no clear-cut answer as to if this small amount can result in a positive drug test. It's always best to avoid cannabis products when you have a drug test coming up.
