Delta-8-Tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-8 THC)
Delta-8 is a hemp compound that has become popular because of its similarity to THC. (Delta-9) THC is the main compound in cannabis that gets you high, this is what most people attribute to a cannabis high.
Delta-8 is very similar to Delta-9 THC but it is known for being a more mild high.
Delta-9 THC can cause negative effects for some, bringing on anxiety or paranoia. Delta-8 offers a smoother, milder high, without the negative effects.
Delta-8 consumers report many of the same positive health benefits as THC, such as mild euphoria, happiness, uplifting feelings, and relief from some symptoms such as pain. Delta-8 can also help with insomnia, appetite stimulation, and anxiety.
The National Center for Biotechnology Information defined Delta-8 THC as the following,
“An analogue of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) with antiemetic, anxiolytic, appetite-stimulating, analgesic, and neuroprotective properties…This agent exhibits a lower psychotropic potency than delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (delta-9-THC), the primary form of THC found in cannabis.”
