Businesses are jumping into the THC beverage game with enthusiasm.

MINNEAPOLIS — Minneapolis Cider Company co-founder Jason Dayton never expected the state of Minnesota to legalize THC derived from hemp.

However, after DFL state lawmakers quietly pushed through a THC regulation measure before the end of the legislative session in May, Dayton's team decided to launch two versions of "Trail Magic," a THC-infused beverage with three milligrams of hemp-derived Delta-9 THC. It went live in late July.

If there are two things Americans can’t escape right now, it’s rising prices and the discussion of rising prices. There is no denying that inflation is dangerously high, with the most recent inflation rate at about 9.1% according to Bloomberg. Still, not all areas of the economy are being affected in the same way. Take marijuana and alcohol, for example.

recreational war

While Detroit's new recreational cannabis law survived one legal attack this week, others are still on deck.

Catch up quick: 

City Council passed the recreational marijuana law in April to provide a limited number of recreational licenses while setting up a "social equity" framework that helps Detroiters enter the market.

Dangerous artificial marijuana, with names like K2 and Spice, is used less in states where Weed is Legalized

danger poison

There's nothing nice or dreamy about synthetic weed, sold under such catchy names as AK-47, K2, Spice, Scoobie Snacks, Mr. Nice Guy and 24-Karat Dream.

Sometimes packaged as e-juice for vaping or as edibles, most synthetic cannabinoids are sold as dried plant materials sprayed with acetone, embalming fluid or other solvents laced with lab-made psychoactive substances.

Does Delta 8 Show up on a Drug Test?

delta 8

First, there are many different types of drug tests. The most common is a urine test, but there are also blood tests, hair follicle tests, and saliva tests. Delta 8 THC can technically show up on all of these types of tests, but it's much more likely to show up on a urine test.

The reason for this is that Delta 8 THC is metabolized differently than other types of THC. When you consume Delta 8, it's broken down into different metabolites in your body. One of those metabolites is called THCCOOH, which is the metabolite that urine tests are designed to detect. If you're concerned about passing a drug test, your best bet is to avoid consuming any products that have any level of THC in them.

What is Delta 8?
