With the festive season in full swing and celebrations happening all around us, you’re likely already planning a party. While your family and friends and their spouses and their friends pile into your house, why not impress them with a delicious new take on Delta 8 THC.
As a host, you’ll want to impress everybody, but board games, your Spotify playlist, or homemade cocktails are no longer surprising to your guests. Now you’ll need to spice things up, and nothing will help you achieve it more than the famous hemp-derived cannabinoid – Delta 8 THC (aka D8 THC). However, there’s something even better than just any Delta 8 THC product your guests can find online, and that’s D8 THC jello shot. Jello shots are always more fun than other homemade drinks: they’re delicious, and luckily super easy to make at home, with just a few ingredients, including premium D8 THC.
Why Delta 8 THC?
Before we head to your kitchen to make the tasty jelly drink, you might wonder why Delta 8 THC drinks will make things more fun, and here’s everything you need to know about the hemp-derived ingredient we’ll use to heat up your party.
What is Delta 8 THC?
Delta 8 THC is a cannabis-derived compound, which is now exceedingly popular on the hemp-derived market. Hemp is marijuana’s non-psychoactive relative plant, which per the 2018 Farm Bill, is legal when it doesn’t contain more than the 0.3% Delta 9 THC.
Delta 9 THC is also a cannabis-derived compound, but unlike Delta 8 THC, it comes from marijuana and is federally illegal. If you have ever smoked marijuana and got high, then Delta 9 THC was the reason for your psychoactive experience.
Although they sound similar, Delta 8 THC and Delta 9 THC are two different compounds that provide significantly different outcomes. D8 THC is a variant of THC with a different molecular structure, but we won’t dive deeper into the chemistry of cannabinoids. More important is that Delta 8 THC is also psychoactive like Delta 9 THC. However, if you tend to experience marijuana’s common side effects like tension, paranoia, irritability, etc., you will be less likely to experience these with Delta 8 THC. The hemp-derived cannabinoid offers 50-70% less psychoactive potency than marijuana and provides a milder, more pleasurable high.
Is Delta 8 THC Legal?
Do you want to know whether your party will get busted for consuming an illegal compound? When throwing a party where recreational marijuana use isn’t allowed, you’ll want to know about the legality of Delta 8 THC.
D8 THC derives from the federally legal hemp plant. However, its concentrations in hemp reach only 1%, which is not enough for manufacturers to extract sufficient amounts of Delta 8 THC. So instead, they extract CBD from hemp and convert it to Delta 8 THC using isomerization.
Although Delta 8 THC is made by converting one cannabinoid to another, it’s not a synthetic cannabinoid and is still hemp-derived. Hemp derivatives with up to 0.3% THC are federally legal per the 2018 Farm Bill, so technically, Delta 8 THC is also federally legal. However, some states are more restrictive about the new cannabinoid and restrict its use, regardless of its source. So, before making your D8 THC jello shots make sure the state you live in doesn’t criminalize D8 THC.
Are you ready to take off to a new high from Delta 8 THC and impress your guests with mouth-watering and refreshing jello shots infused with the new famous cannabis compound? Here’s a simple recipe to take your party to the next level, expanding Delta 8 edibles beyond what you can find in a bag.
Delta 8 THC Jello Shot Recipe:
Let’s begin making the delicious drink by selecting the right ingredients.
Here’s what we’ll need:
- Jell-O of your choice of flavor and color
- Delta 8 THC gummies
- Jello shots plastic pots
The foundation of the jello shot is flavored Jell-O. It gives the drink its flavor and color. You can use different ones for making a colorful variety of Delta 8 THC jello shots. Use plant-based Jell-O if you want your drink suitable for your vegetarian and vegan guests.
Vodka is another crucial aspect of your jello shots, but luckily, you don’t need it to be of high-end, and a bottle of smooth Vodka like Absolut will make delicious jello shots.
Here’s how to Make Delta 8 THC Jello Shots:
- Add D8 THC gummies to boiling water and stir until dissolved. We recommend a ratio of 100mg of D8 THC gummies to 1 cup of boiling water.
- Add Jell-O to boiling water mixture and stir until the mix has dissolved (3oz package).
- Mix in Vodka and cold water (1/2 cup each).
- Pour the liquid into jello shot containers and place them in the fridge to chill for about 4 hours.
- If you want, top the jello shots with whipped cream or sprinkles. Have fun!
How much Delta 8 THC Should I use?
If you use one 3oz Jell-O pack and 100mg of Delta 8 gummies for the recipe, you will have approximately 16 shots, each containing 6.5mg of Delta 8 THC. The perfect dosage depends on each person’s tolerance level.
