What is Delta-8 THC?

Posted on Leave a comment

There’s been a lot of popularity surrounding the more recent Delta-8 THC, but what exactly is it?

Delta-8 THC, or delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol, is one of the four main cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant.

In the cannabis that the majority of cannabis enthusiasts are used to using, it is the compound delta-9 THC that provides most of the desired effects.

Delta-9 and delta-8 are two very similar cannabinoids, but have some differences. Delta-8 provides effects of less potency and intensity than delta-9, which, on the other hand, means less adverse effects as well.

Delta-8 is legal in many areas due to the fact that most of it that is on the market is manufactured from hemp-derived CBD- this makes it legal, technically.

Delta-8 is known to be a safe compound, as it naturally occurs in all cannabis, just at smaller amounts. The effects that delta-8 provides, although less potent, are the same as delta-9 offers.

There are many medical conditions that can be treated by using delta-8, also.

Delta-8 THC is a trend that is still young, and many questions still exist regarding its effects, origin, and legality.
