What is Delta-8-THC and whats the difference between Delta-9-THC?
Delta-9-THC Is what gets you “high” when smoking cannabis. Delta-8 is a similar molecule that is found in the industrial hemp plant but the effects are said to be milder, more relaxed, enjoyable, helpful in reducing stress & anxiety reducing and can assist with nausea and appetite issues. It’s not nearly as potent as Delta 9 but its effects are indeed similar. Some may say better! Other anecdotal evidence suggests that the effects are felt much more in the body and is more of a relaxing experience than delta 9.

With lots of research coming out on Delta 8 THC, it’s becoming clear that just like CBD, Delta8THC may have many if its own benefits. For example D8 THC is a CB1 Binder and may assist in production of acetylcholine which can help memory, arousal, cognition and neurogenesis. This may indicate Delta-8-THC to have nootropic (brain boosting) effects.
Delta-8-THC also binds to the CB1 receptor that is found in the central nervous system which can possibly help with symptoms of nausea, pain and anxiety.
