What is Delta-8-THC?

The Delta-8-THC molecule to show its similarity to traditional THC products

Delta-8 is a mildly psychoactive hemp product that's being made from CBD. It's made from hemp and contains less than 0.3% Delta-9-THC, which means it falls under the federal definition for legal hemp material. In other words, it's much more accessible than traditional cannabis products, so many people are surprised to find out that it has psychoactive effects similar to traditional THC.

In fact, Delta-8's psychoactive effects are about 60% as potent as traditional THC's, and some evidence suggests that it has far fewer drawbacks, like anxiety and paranoia. Many people enjoy Delta-8 for its recreational benefits, but others claim it provides therapeutic benefits similar to medical THC products.

Where Can I Buy Delta-8 in Maine?

If you’re looking to buy Delta-8 in Maine, you have two primary options:

Buy Delta 8 THC Online in Maine

Many consumers prefer to buy Delta-8-THC online for a variety of reasons. When you shop for Delta-8 online in ME you can:

Find a Wider Variety of Formulas

When you shop online, you'll access a much larger variety of product types, potencies, and flavors than you'll find in any store.

Easily Verify Quality

Buying online is advantageous for quality-conscious consumers because you can easily find lab tests and other quality related information. We recommend that consumers look for a Delta-8 brand that uses high-quality, US grown hemp that is pesticide-free and tested for quality and potency. Shipping online also allows you to get a better idea of the brand's reputation.

For example, you can find our third party lab test results clearly listed on every product page. That means you can see independent test results that verify the potency of all of our Delta-8 edibles, flower, vapes, and more before you buy. Read more about our quality standards here.

Spend Less

Shopping online means you can buy directly from the brand, something you can't often do when shopping locally. In other words, you can save on the fees associated with a third-party vendor.

At Vida Optima, we avoid expensive marketing campaigns and keep most of the work in-house. That means we save money on production without cutting any corners on quality. We're proud to offer some of the most affordable Delta-8-THC products you'll find online.

Enjoy Convenience

Online shopping is popular for one primary reason: it’s convenient. You can get your favorite Delta-8-THC products delivered without ever leaving home.

Keep Purchases Discreet

If discretion is important to you, buying online is the best option! We ship all of our products discreetly so you can order all the Delta-8 products you need without tipping off the mail carrier or your neighbors.

Buy Delta-8-THC in Stores in Maine

You can likely find Delta-8-THC products at various stores local to you. In fact, it may be well advertised that your local convenience stores or vape shops sell Delta-8 products. Of course, there are some things to be worried about when buying Delta-8 from these local, non-specialty shops.

First, these stores typically buy the products they can find at the best price margins with no regard for the quality or efficacy of the product. Since the hemp industry is not well-regulated, this can mean that these stores carry low-quality products that may be ineffective or even unsafe.

Also remember that these stores are typically under no obligation to provide quality information or lab tests. They also typically market products at inflated prices.

In other words, if you buy Delta-8 in stores in Maine, you may be overpaying or purchasing unsafe products.

What Kind of Delta-8 Products Can You Buy in ME?

If you're shopping for Delta-8 online, you can find virtually any type of Delta-8-THC product your heart desires. At Vida Optima, we have a broad selection of Delta-8 formulas, including:


Delta-8 gummies are one of the most popular dosing styles available. Regular therapeutic users love the convenience of pre-measured doses. All consumers love the tangy, chewy consistency. The primary drawback of gummies is that you'll need to wait around an hour for them to be digested before they can take effect, but that usually translates to longer lasting effects.

Delta-8 gummies are also a discrete and portable dosing method, which is great if you plan to take them on-the-go.

Our Delta-8 gummies have 10 mg of Delta-8-THC per piece. Before you buy Delta-8 Gummies in Maine, read our Delta-8-THC Gummy Buyer’s Guide.

Vida Optima Elev8 Candies

Sublingual Edibles

Sublingual edibles are also pre-measured and portable, but they are designed to bypass digestion by dissolving in your mouth. When Delta-8-THC is absorbed through the mucous membranes in the mouth it can take effect in as little as 30 minutes.

We have a variety of sublingual-style edibles, like our Elev8 Hard Candies and Elev8 Chews, including 10, 25, and 50 mg doses.


Delta-8-THC oil tinctures are also delivered sublingually, or by dropping to dose under your tongue. Because Delta-8 oils are a liquid form, they can be easily measured in small increments. This is an advantage to new users who have yet to figure out their dosage threshold or therapeutic users that may need to frequently alter their dosing routine. Our Delta-8-THC Oil tests at 95%+ Δ8THC and offers a potent 1,000 mg of Delta-8 per bottle.


Delta-8 vaporizers are popular thanks to their fact acting effects and easy dosing method. Because the effects can be felt in a matter of minutes, you can easily stack doses until you reach the desired effects. As far as inhalation methods go, vaping is much more portable and discrete than flower.

Our Elev8 Delta-8 Vape Carts contain 1000mg of Delta-8 oil per cartridge with about 5% reserved for terpenes (used for strain profiling.)

Our carts may deliver anywhere from 150 to 300 individual doses depending on the length of each inhale and the type of battery used. You can grab an Indica, Sativa, or Hybrid Delta-8 Vape Cart from our Elev8 Collection.

Before you buy Delta-8 Vapes in Maine, read our Delta-8-THC Cart Buying Guide.


Delta-8 flower is regular hemp flower with Delta-8 distillate added on top. Delta-8 flower is designed to mimic the aromatic, fast-acting experience of cannabis flower. Just like traditional cannabis flower, it can be rolled or packed into a bowl.

Since it is made from hemp flower, Delta-8 flower will usually contain a considerable amount of CBD and hemp-derived terpenes, which may have increased therapeutic benefits. Our Delta-8-THC Flower collection includes a variety of the most popular strains, including indicas, sativas, and hybrids.

You may also be able to find some of these products in local stores, but the selection will likely be more limited. The most common Delta-8 products found in Maine stores include gummies, vapes, and tincture oils.

How Old to Buy Delta-8 in Maine?

Most states have yet to set any age limits for hemp products. Typically, it's up to the vendor to decide the minimum age requirements for buying Delta-8 products. In most cases, you'll need to be 21 years old or older to purchase Delta-8-THC products in Maine.

Where in Maine Can You Buy Delta-8?

If you’re shopping in stores, your access to Delta-8 may be limited. If you buy Delta-8 online, you can buy Delta-8 from anywhere in Maine. That means that whether you are shopping from Portland, Lewiston, Bangor, Auburn, Sanford, or another town in Maine, you can order directly from our Elev8 Collection.
