Why Delta 8?
Many cannabis users love the feeling and relief they get from THC however as it causes high levels of anxiety for some users it is not an option. Delta 8 THC has much lower psychoactive potency than Delta 9 THC, making it significantly less mind-altering when consumed. When using Delta 8 THC it can produce a semi-sedative physical effect, which can help you feel more relaxed and laid back.
Delta 9 vs Delta 8
Similarities and Differences
From a chemical or structural perspective, delta-8-THC differs from delta-9-THC due to the location of a critical chemical bond. Both delta-8 and delta-9-THC contain double bonds in their molecular chain. Delta-8-THC contains that bond on the 8th carbon chain, while delta-9-THC contains the bond on the 9th carbon chain. Although it’s a subtle difference, it has noticeable effects on how the body’s endocannabinoid receptors bind and respond to the molecule.
In addition, delta-9-THC is less stable than delta-8-THC. Delta-9 THC is easily oxidized to become cannabinol (CBN) or delta-8-THC. Delta-8-THC is stable, does not oxidize to become cannabinol, and boasts a prolonged shelf life. Such stability is desirable in a medicinal compound. Delta-8-THC is also about half as strong as delta-9.
Is it legal?
The 2018 Farm Bill made all hemp-derived cannabinoids, isomers, and other derivatives completely legal in the United States with a caveat: all products must contain .3% THC or less. Specifically, products can have a maximum of .3% Delta 9 THC, as Delta 9 is a more psychoactive compound.
