A Brief Introduction to Delta 8 THC

Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as delta-8 THC, is a psychoactive substance found in the Cannabis sativa plant, of which marijuana and hemp are two varieties. Delta-8 THC is one of more than 100 cannabinoids produced naturally by the cannabis plant, but it is not found in significant amounts. As a result, cannabidiol derived from hemp is commonly used to produce concentrated amounts of delta-8 THC.

Fun Facts About Delta 8 THC

1. Delta-8 THC has psychoactive and intoxicating effects.

Delta-8 THC has psychoactive and intoxicating properties, similar to delta-9 THC (the component that causes people to get “high” when they use cannabis). The psychotropic effect that delta 8 produces is not as intense as what you may experience from using delta 9 products. This means you can use delta 8 products and still go about your day as usual.

2. Delta-8 THC products often involve the use of solvents to create this cannabinois.

The natural amount of delta-8 THC in hemp is extremely low, necessitating the use of solvents to convert other cannabinoids in hemp, such as CBD, into delta-8 THC (i.e., synthetic conversion). Since they are sourced from hemp-derived CBD, delta 8 products are legal even in states and countries where delta 9 THC is not legal.
