You need to learn more about hemp, cannabis, cannabinoids, and Delta-8 THC in order to understand the differences and similarities. The subject of cannabis and hemp goes far beyond CBD and THC. Although the major cannabinoids are the most popular, there is still much to be done for research and popularity. But where should we expect love and support for the minor ones? Relax, take Delta-8 THC, our favorite minor cannabinoid out for a spin, and sit back.
We’ll be comparing Delta-8 THC and Delta-9 THC in this article. What are the similarities, differences, benefits, and how do they compare? We will also discuss the legality of these cannabinoids, and how it ultimately affects you, as the user. We’ll also discuss the reasons why people are switching from Delta-9 THC products, to Delta-8.
What is Delta-9 THC?
We must first be familiar with Delta-9 before we can fully understand the relationship between Delta-8 THC (THC) and Delta-9 THC (THC). In the 1990s, researchers tried to figure out how Delta-9 THC worked. They accidentally discovered the endocannabinoid systems.
You can find a detailed explanation of the Delta-8 system and its relationship to it . The endocannabinoid (ECS), is an essential part of the human body. Its primary function is to regulate receptors that are linked to other bodily systems in order to maintain homeostasis.
With the discovery of ECS in the 1990s, scientists were able to define what Delta-9 THC was. Otherwise known as Delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol, it is the most well-known and abundant cannabinoid that exists in both hemp and marijuana plants.
Delta-9 THC is a psychoactive component in cannabis products. It gained notoriety for being the main ingredient.
What is Delta-8 THC?
Delta-8 THC can be described as an analog of Delta-9 THC. It can be naturally produced in marijuana and hemp plants. However, most Delta-8 products such as DRIP vape cartridges or gummies are made from CBD-derived hemp.
The 2018 Farm Bill passed Delta-8 THC, making it a very popular product. Delta-8 THC is a great choice to traditional Delta-9 products because it delivers the same psychoactive high as other Delta-9 products but without any side effects such as increased anxiety or paranoia.
Delta-8 and Delta-9 have many similarities
Both Delta-8 THC (THC) and Delta-9 THC (THC) are psychoactive compounds. They are able to bind to the endocannabinoid receptors to provide a wide range of responses to pain, temperature, and psychological stimuli in everyday life.
Both cannabinoids have psychoactive properties and similar benefits. However, there are some differences.
What are the differences between Delta-8 and Delta-9?
The most significant difference between Delta-8 THC and Delta-9 THC is the intensity of their psychoactive effects. Delta-8 THC is stronger than Delta-8 THC, but this can lead to side effects. Delta-9 can cause paranoia, anxiety and rapid heart beat.
The Delta-8 THC experience is quite different (in a positive way). Think of the euphoric high from traditional weed products but without the brain fog. It’s the feeling of being stoned, without having to forget where you are going. Delta-8 THC users say they feel more focused, better able to concentrate and have a more manageable chill. The best cannabis is Delta-8. It is legal and comes from hemp.
For example, our Delta-8 cartridges offer concentrated Delta-8 CBD distillate derived primarily from hemp. We extract Delta-8 from hemp in large quantities and filter out all THC to ensure it does not exceed 0.3% of the 2018 Farm Bill’s THC limit. The result is a Delta-8 distillate with a strong and satisfying flavor. It’s not contaminated by Delta-9 and is made from hemp grown in the USA.
There is something for everyone
Everyone is different, so Delta-8 THC may affect you in different ways. While each user’s experience will be different, there are commonalities we have seen among all of them so far. There are many factors that can influence your experience, especially if this is your first time using cannabis products.
First-time cannabis users might have a completely different experience, regardless of whether they are new to Delta-8 THC or Delta-9 THC. Even if CBD has been used in the past, it is still a different kind of cannabinoid. The sensation of getting high is unlike anything CBD can offer.
