What is ∆8-THC & Where Does it Come From?
The cannabis plant has a multitude of cannabinoids within it, including Delta-9-THC, CBD, CBN, CBC, and many more. A more recent, very valuable discovery in the realm of cannabinoids is Delta-8-THC. Delta-8-THC is present only in minor amounts in the plant itself, but through recent discoveries in the realm of fractional distillation, it is now possible to isolate Delta-8-THC from hemp extract. The National Cancer Institute states that Delta-8-THC is:
"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."
What Benefits Does ∆8-THC Provide?
Delta-8-THC differs from Delta-9-THC by only a few atomic bonds, but that slight change makes a considerable difference. Delta-8-THC is less psychoactive than Delta-9-THC, but it does still have psychoactivity. Delta-8-THC provides a slightly clearer head-change compared to Delta-9-THC, while still delivering on a physical "stoning" effect and pain-relieving properties. Delta-8-THC is a great appetite stimulant and possesses anti-nausea properties as well. Delta-8 is also much less likely to cause anxiety in high doses compared to Delta-9. In fact, many people find Delta-8 to be quite helpful for anxiety.
