Delta-8 THC: The New Addition to the CBD Market

Aug 20, 2020 | CBD, Delta 8-THC, Delta 9-THC

Being part of such a big industry, we are surprised how many new pieces of research on individual cannabinoids are causing advocates to rave in the Cannabis World. The most talked-about cannabinoid in 2020 is Delta-8 THC, because of its resemblance to Delta 9. Hence, why they call this the loophole of the Delta-9 THC.

Delta 8 THC Distillate that is used to make many of our products.

What is Delta 8?

Delta-8 THC is one of the 120+ cannabinoids found in the hemp flower. According to the NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information), Delta 8 exhibits a lower psychotropic potency than Delta-9 THC, which is the primary state of THC in cannabis. Delta 8 is considered a minor cannabinoid because of its low concentrations within the plant. It’s know to be a degraded form of THC, but it’s not derived from cannabinoid enzymes inside the plant. Delta 8 offers a unique and potent high of its own. The past consumers of Delta 8 have reported experiences of calming body sensations, clear-headedness, and relaxation with a lower psychotropic effect.

Potential Benefits

The effects of Delta 8 are similar to those of the traditional Delta 9 THC but have a less intense effect. It is a more functional version of Delta-9 THC but offers the customer a calming focus. There are many preliminary and clinical studies that are unveiling the therapeutic and unique properties of Delta 8. These are some potential benefits of Delta 8:

  • Pain Relief
  • Appetite Stimulation
  • Nausea & Anxiety
  • Anti-Inflammatory Effects

Difference between Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC?

Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC are very popular cannabinoids because of their ability to cause psychoactive effects. The very subtle difference between these two versions of THC is a couple of atomic bonds and is the reason Delta 8 is two-thirds the potency of Delta 9. Delta 8 THC is still very potent on its own even though it’s less than Delta 9. Delta 8 has a lower psychotropic potency than Delta 9 which makes it easier to function while taking it. The stability of Delta 8 is what makes it an extremely valuable cannabis-derived chemical compound.
