Delta 8

What is Delta 8 THC

 

Delta 8 THC is a cannabinoid that shares some of the same therapeutic properties as Delta 9 THC and CBD. This cannabinoid has the potential to help with sleep, slow abnormal cell growth, and assist with pain. Consumers of Delta 8 can experience all of these amazing benefits without the feeling of paranoia or anxiety that sometimes comes along with consuming Delta 9.

 

Delta 8 is similar to Delta 9 in terms of effects, but is considered less potent than Delta 9 by about 50%. Delta 8 is considered to have a more sedating effect - think Indica.

 

CBD is extracted from legal hemp and converted to Delta 8 through a process called isomerization (this process has been around for decades). Delta 8 is an isomer of CBD, meaning the CBD molecule can be rearranged to create D8 THC.

What is isomerization?  Isomerization is the process of rearranging the components of one compound to convert it into another. Since nothing is added during this provess, D8 THC is not a true synthetic.
