Delta 8 tetrahydrocannabinol or THC extract made from hemp, federally legal, and contains less that 0.3% Delta 9 THC.
The 2018 Farm Bill specifically made all derivatives, isomers, and cannabinoids in hemp legal, provided the final product has less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC.
Delta 8 THC is legal according to Florida state law. Florida legalized all derivates, cannabinoids, and isomers of hemp including all tetrahydrocannabinols other than delta 9 THC.
Delta-8-THC, one of the four most common cannabinoids, is similar to its psychoactive relative THC, but with several key differences.

Delta-8 is often not as dominant as delta-9, which can produce a calmer experience compared to standard THC
