What is Delta 8 THC?

What is Delta 8 THC?

Delta 8 is a hemp-cannabis derivative that has been on the rise of popularity for the past year. Many Americans especially older in age have turned to using this product, because this active ingredient is less psychoactive than that of Delta 9 THC.

Delta 8 THC is one of the many cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Delta 8 is fairly similar to its cousin Delta 9 THC, which is the major intoxicating component in cannabis. Delta 8 THC is known to have more health benefits. Delta 8 is extracted from both the CBD and Cannabis plant. Both plants contain Delta 9 and will have the same benefits and sensation. The component is then extracted out of the plant and turned into an oil. This extraction process is conducted in a lab by industry experts.

 Although Delta 8 does not give you the same sensation as Delta 9 THC, it does still create a milder effect of making you feel “high”.

Delta 8 Benefits

Delta 8 is known to aid in numerous health issues such as nausea, anxiety, eating disorders, and chronic pain.

1. Anxiety

Delta 8 work hand in hand with our B1 receptors in our brain. These receptors are responsible for anxiety and paranoia. Similar to the way Delta 9 THC works, it balances out your B1 receptors, but D-8 does not give you the same euphoric sensation. This is a perfect alternative for those looking for anxiety/stress relief from plant medicine without the stoned feeling.

2. Chronic Pain

Similar to the way CBD and THC work, Delta-8 reduces inflammation in your body that causes pain. This product works great for those with chronic pain looking for relief without a euphoric effect.

3. Eating Disorders

Today we see so many individuals with eating disorders, luckily we have a great solution to help ease the  improve the digestive and immune systems. When using THC products you tend to get the “munchies” meaning you get lots of food cravings and a sense of needing to fill your stomach asap! Delta 8 is known to give you this same sensation with more benefits and less euphoric effects!

4. Nausea

Delta 8 THC is known to give relief from nausea and stomach pain. This is true for Delta 9 as well but for those looking for relief without feeling “high” we recommend using Delta 8 THC products.
