Delta 8 is a minor psychoactive cannabinoid found in the Hemp plant. It is an isomer of Delta 9, the compound known as THC. When THC is stored for a period of time, it degrades into Delta 8. Delta 8 has antiemetic, anxiolytic, orexigenic, analgesic, and neuroprotective properties.
Delta 8 has become increasingly popular due to the similarities of THC, which is a compound that gets you high, causing euphoria, happiness, relaxation, symptom relief, and more. However, the effects of Delta 8 will be much less potent. Please be mindful when trying Delta 8 for the first time, and use the same caution you would with THC products.
Delta-8 vs. CBD
Delta 8 has many similarities to what we refer to as THC or Delta 9, than it does with CBD. The chemical structure of Delta 8 is similar to Delta 9, and the same as it gets you high and has intoxicating effects. However, Delta 8 tends to exhibit a lower psychotropic potency than Delta 9 (THC). Delta 8 binds to the body’s endocannabinoid system similar to Delta 9. CBD is non-intoxicating, non-psychoactive and can offer medicinal benefits for the consumer.
If you like the effects of THC, but with a reduced potency, Delta 8 may be a great choice for you. Delta 8 may cause very similar effects to Delta 9 (THC), but they will be much less potent. If you seek relief from certain symptoms and don’t want to feel "high," you may want to try one of our CBD vapes instead.
