Everything you need to know about alternative cannabinoids (mostly).

Delta 8

D8, Delta-8 & Delta-8-THC is short for Delta 8 Tetrahydrocannabinol is a mildly euphoric isomer of psychoactive Delta-9-THC. Delta-8 causes a similar effect to Delta-9 but they will be less potent. They are both forms of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).  Delta-8 is federally legal since the 2018 Farm Bill that made Hemp extracted products legal. However, some states have decided to ban Delta-8. 

The chemical difference in Delta-8 and Delta-9 are that the placement of the double bond. 

Delta-8 is on the 8th carbon, and Delta-9 is on the 9th.  Delta-8 binds to the endocannabinoid system slightly different that’s why the less potent effects.  Some of the benefits of Delta-8 are pain relief, insomnia, anxiety and nausea. Delta-8 is manufactured by refining CBD isolate in a different method.
