What can Delta-8 do for you?
Delta-8 THC is the latest exciting trend in the hemp industry. But what exactly is Delta-8? How does it differ from Delta-9, and how can Delta-8 benefit you? Let’s take a closer look.
While Delta-8 and Delta-9 share some similar chemical properties, they are also quite different. Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, more commonly known as THC, is a cannabinoid molecule found in cannabis. Delta-9 is well-known for inducing a plethora of psychological and sensory effects. Some of these effects include sedation, relaxation, and laughter, but, unfortunately, it is categorized as a “controlled substance,” meaning it is regulated by the government and is illegal. Because Delta-8 is derived from hemp and not government-regulated, this product may be more of what you’re looking for in a hemp product.
Even though Delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol is considered federally legal, it is considerably less potent than Delta-9 yet still delivers psychotropic effects. Delta-8 has its many positive benefits, and one which consumers most often look for is pain relief. It is also an anti-anxiety cannabinoid that helps users feel more relaxed and focused. Anti-nausea is another positive result of inducing Delta-8. It has been tested on children with cancer going through chemotherapy, and researchers found that it stopped vomiting and nausea. Delta-8 also stimulates the appetite for those who may have difficulty eating while undergoing chemotherapy. Finally, this particular product can help with memory formation.
There are many different ways to consume Delta-8, from gummies and vape cartridges to oral tinctures and oils.
