WHAT IS DELTA 8 THC?
Delta 8 is a minor cannabinoid mostly derived from hemp. It is structurally much like Delta 9 THC, the cannabinoid we all know and love for making you high by way of binding to the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the endocannabinoid system. In comparison, Delta 8 THC only binds to CB1 receptors, therefore producing a lighter high that still has a lot of the same medicinal benefits as Delta 9.
WILL DELTA 8 GET YOU HIGH?
Delta 8 is an isomer of Delta 9 that helps more with anxiety, giving you a clear headed high without the fogginess and paranoia. While no one person’s experience is the same, it tends to make its users feel more energized rather than couch locked and is good if you don’t want to get too high. Because we’ve all been there! It also helps with nausea, pain relief and there has been promising research into its neuroprotective properties for Alzheimer's. In essence, it has a lower psychotropic potency compared to the same amount of Delta 9 THC so you won’t feel nearly as stoned consuming just as much. This makes it a game-changer for many people who are looking for all the benefits of cannabis without the paranoia that sometimes accompanies Delta 9.
IS DELTA 8 THC LEGAL?
The short answer is yes! Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, it’s exempt from the list of controlled substances for the time being. The Farm Bill allows for hemp-derived products that have less than 0.3% THC to be made freely and legally. Originally, this mainly applied to CBD oil but now Delta 8 is also becoming popular under the same law.
