- Delta-8 THC is gaining popularity as a new weed compound that’s basically legal.
- The cannabinoid gets you high but is less potent than other kinds of THC and possibly less anxiety-inducing.
- Like CBD, delta-8 can be derived from hemp and exists in a legal loophole.

I didn’t ask any questions as I stood in line at Chicago’s Wake-N-Bakery and accepted a free weed-infused Sour Patch Watermelon from a barista’s gloved hands.
After all, I wasn’t completely sure how this whole thing worked.
