What Is Delta-8-THC?

According to the National Cancer Institute, delta-8-THC can be defined as:

“An analogue of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) with antiemetic, anxiolytic, appetite-stimulating, analgesic, and neuroprotective properties. [Delta-8-THC] binds to the cannabinoid G-protein coupled receptor CB1, located in the central nervous system…This agent exhibits a lower psychotropic potency than [delta-9-THC], the primary form of THC found in cannabis.”

Difference in Delta-8-THC & Delta-9-THC

Delta-8-THC is chemically different from delta-9-THC by only a few atomic bonds and still provides many healing benefits. While delta-8-THC is the more natural part of the flower, delta-9-THC is the more unnatural part of the flower. Delta-8-THC relives, nausea, sickness and stress while delta-9-THC makes your head cloudy. Many of these cannabis flowers are beneficial when used appropriately. They trigger mental and physical effects on your brain that can bring relaxation and other health benefits.
