What is Delta-8?
Think of Delta-8 as CBD’s and Delta-9’s chill cousin
Delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as Δ8THC, is one of the many cannabinoids that occur naturally in cannabis plants. Both Δ9 THC and Δ8 THC are biosynthesized in the cannabis plant in a similar way via the precursor cannabinoid CBGA. The main chemical difference between the two is Δ8 THC has a double bond on the 8th carbon chain and Δ9 THC is on the 9th carbon chain.
Is Delta-8 Psychoactive?
Yes, it’s user-specific!
Similar to CBD, Δ8 also binds to the receptors in the endocannabinoid and nervous system. Users have reported clear-headed and non-sedative effects. Like Delta-9 THC, Δ8 can have psychoactive effects although the level depends on one’s tolerance and their own body. Users also claim that the effects tend to have a lower intensity in comparison to Δ9. Remember how the location of the double bond in Δ8 is in a slightly different location from Δ9? Because of this slight difference, Δ8 binds less tightly to the CB1 receptors essentially decreasing its potential for higher potency. This makes Delta-8 a more easy-going, approachable cannabinoid, great for day use. If you are an avid Delta-8 user, just like Delta-9, you can build a tolerance over time.
