What Is Delta-8?

Updated: Feb 17

WHAT IS Delta-8-THC? Delta-8-THC is one of the 100+ cannabinoids found in cannabis. Like other cannabinoids, it interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system – specifically the CB1 receptor of the nervous system – to bring on its psychotropic effects. Delta-8-THC is distinct from the THC that is often mentioned in conversation about cannabis. What we refer to as THC usually means Delta-9-THC, the main form of THC found in cannabis. Delta-8-THC is an analog of Delta-9-THC, a molecule with a similar structure, but some notable differences. While the two share many similar properties, such as reportedly stimulating appetite, reducing nausea, and soothing pain, delta-8-THC tends to exhibit a lower psychotropic potency than delta-9


Delta-8-THC will give you the intoxicating effects found in THC, but it’s effects are a bit different. You can still focus, concentrate, and do all the things you love while having a calming sensation! It is still a form of THC though, and as with all cannabis products with high levels of THC, a known psychoactive compound, should always be used with caution. Start slow and low and assess your tolerance from there. Delta-8-THC can still cause redness of the eyes, especially in stronger doses.
