Butter.ATL Does Delta-8 with The Green Goddess Bakery & The Georgia Hemp Company
The popularity of delta-8 THC has grown in Atlanta and nationwide since the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, which legalized hemp in the U.S. Although delta-9 THC — the cannabinoid molecule in marijuana (cannabis) that creates the “high” feeling — remains a Schedule 1 controlled substance according to the federal government in 2021 (meaning it’s illegal), the majority of U.S. states, including Georgia, have not outlawed delta-8 THC, which has similar effects, which means you can consume delta-8 without fear of legal consequences, at least at press time in December 2021.
Butter.ATL, Atlanta’s culture channel, wanted to know more about delta-8, what makes it like marijuana, what makes it different, how it makes you feel, and what it means for the future of cannabis policy and consumption in Atlanta and beyond. So our editor-in-chief Mike Jordan, along with Matilda Adu (co-founder of The Green Goddess Bakery) and Joe Salome (managing partner of The Georgia Hemp Company), recently spent a few hours on camera talking about delta-8, while consuming delta-8. Watch and learn, and maybe laugh a little bit as the effects kick in, and be sure to follow Butter.ATL on Instagram (@butter.atl) and on the web at ButterATL.com for more great videos and content on the culture of ATL.
