What Is Delta 8 THC?

Delta 8 THC, a cannabinoid that has a mild psychotropic effect and is sourced from the cannabis flower, provides users with a soothing body sensation while maintaining mental clarity and alertness. This compound, an isomer of CBD derived from hemp, possesses a Delta 9 THC content not exceeding 0.3% in our offerings. Essentially, Delta 8 THC represents a unique intersection between hemp, CBD, and Delta 9 THC.

 

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) defines Delta 8 THC as an analog of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), possessing analgesic, antiemetic, appetite-stimulating, anxiolytic, and neuroprotective effects. Notably, NCI highlights that compared to Delta 9 THC, which is the predominant variation of THC found in cannabis, Delta 8 THC has less psychotropic power.

 

Research suggests that Delta 8 THC is approximately two-thirds as potent as Delta 9 THC. The effects of Delta 8 THC are distinct from those of Delta 9 THC, with the former offering a smoother experience. Delta 8 THC offers restorative help without the couch-lock, drowsiness, stress, or paranoia associated with Delta 9 THC. As a result, medical cannabis patients are increasingly turning to Delta 8 THC as a preferable alternative.
