    Frequently Asked Questions

    Delta-8 THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is one of the many naturally occurring cannabinoids from the hemp plant. For decades, it has been left on the sidelines of scientific research as the focus remained on compounds like CBD and delta-9 THC.

    But recently, under the Farm Bill of 2018, delta-8 is now considered one of a handful of legal hemp-derived cannabinoids. This means delta-8 is legal on a federal level, though some regions are pushing back with state laws. 

    The debut of delta-8 in the marketplace represents an exciting step forward for hemp products overall. From classic balanced tinctures to delta-8 and delta-9 THC gummies with varying ratios, our Above collection has something for everyone.

    How does delta-8 interact with the body?

    Delta-8 interacts with the body through the endocannabinoid system. This vast, branching network of neurotransmitters is headquartered in the brain but encompasses nearly every part of the body and its various systems. The ECS plays a role in a huge range of functions, such as muscle and joint comfort, sleep regulation, mood, and much more.*

    When delta-8 enters the bloodstream, it binds with CB1 receptors of the ECS, which mainly govern the cerebral effects of the hemp experience. Meanwhile, delta-8 also interacts with CB2 receptors, which are responsible for the full-body feeling that many hemp users love. 

    This combination of mind and body effects makes delta-8 a unique cannabinoid, and one that offers a lighter, milder type of high compared more other types of hemp products. 

    Does delta-8 contribute to the entourage effect?

    The entourage effect occurs when multiple cannabinoids and terpenes interact with the ECS at the same time, creating synergistic effects. With our Above lineup of delta-8 products, we made the entourage effect a top priority, not a footnote.

    Every one of these products, from our Above + Beyond Live Resin CBD Gummies to our Full Spectrum Delta-8 CBD Hemp Oil Tincture, is designed to combine the forces of several cannabinoids and supporting terpenes, all in one powerful package. 

    Multiple compounds are at play here, so your ECS gets the benefit of natural hemp as it's meant to. The entourage effect keeps your endocannabinoid system happy and healthy, with a full range of diverse compounds teaming up for wellness benefits. That means deeper relaxation, more soothing relief, and holistic uplifting effects — all from one streamlined hemp extract product.

    How is delta-8 different from delta-9?

    Delta-8 and delta-9 are often mentioned together as cannabinoid siblings, and for good reason. Delta-8 has a slightly different chemical structure from delta-9 THC, as its double bond is on the eighth carbon chain instead of the ninth. While the chemistry is subtle, it leads to changes in how our bodies and minds respond to a serving of delta-8.

    While delta-9 is known for its intense binding affinity to CB1 receptors of the ECS, delta-8 is considerably subtler and more refined. This leaves users with a clearer head, better cognitive capacity, and the ability to handle more complex inputs and outputs during mental or physical activity. That’s why many users find delta-8 to be more suitable for daytime use or creative productivity, as opposed to the full-on relaxation induced by some delta-9 strains.

    Of course, our Above product line allows you to curate your hemp experience. Whether you want a more delta-8-focused approach or enjoy the combination of delta-8 and delta-9, there’s a product that suits your lifestyle and wellness needs.

    Our Above Delta-8 collection showcases both live resin and full spectrum hemp extract blends, giving you several high-quality options for experiencing delta-8. 

    Live resin is an innovative extraction method that flash-freezes hemp plants and captures the true essence of its cannabinoid and terpene profile. From the scent and taste to the amazing effects, live resin is the closest you’ll get to enjoying real hemp without smoking hemp flower or using a THC vape.* 

    Full spectrum hemp extract is produced through a different extraction process, allowing us to formulate the finished product more precisely. We don’t use synthetic processes, here — only real hemp plant biomass extracts to get the highest-quality delta-8. 

    With our Above Delta-8 lineup, you’ve got several ways to enjoy the effects of delta-8 and other cannabinoids. Our gummies are the stars here, including different ratios of delta-8 and hemp-derived delta-9 THC. 

    Gummies offer a consistent, predictable serving size that you can count on every time, whether you enjoy the effects of THC edibles or you’re looking to dial down the psychoactive effects. Above Delta-8 Live Resin Gummies is your ticket to a full delta-8 experience wellness with good taste and consistency. Meanwhile, our tincture offers more precision and customizable servings that suit your lifestyle.

    No more need for pre-rolls or disposable vape cartridges when you have the best delta-8 available. Sunmed offers the most premium hemp products on the market that truly reflect the relieving power of the hemp plant. With flavors inspired by watermelon and pineapple express, it’s never been more enjoyable to get your daily hemp.

    And, as always, our gummies and tinctures are rigorously lab-tested and approved by a third-party lab, with the results available for access on our site.

    The benefits of delta-8 are amplified when paired with other cannabinoids and terpenes, which is why we make sure to include several different compounds in many of our delta-8 products.

    This goes beyond the entourage effect. At last, you’re getting a genuine, non-synthetic hemp extract with hemp-derived delta-8. Check out our Above Delta-8 Live Resin Gummies if you’re looking for strictly delta-8 paired with a hybrid live resin blend.
