Understanding Delta-8 THC

In 2020 Delta-8 began to gain popularity abruptly on the national market. It happened because Delta-8 is very similar in its effects to Delta-9 that is the main marijuana component. Delta-8 is just a lighter version of Delta-9 that is most likely, the main attractive reason. In this article, you will find out more about Delta-8, how people consume it, and where you can order cartridges for it.

What is Delta-8?

Delta-8 is a compound derived from cannabis that became very popular in 2021 due to its similarity to Delta-9 THC. Delta-8 makes you feel uplifted, has a sedative effect, and relieves symptoms. Most cannabis strains are high in THC.

More specifically, THC comes from the following cannabinoids:

  • CBD
  • CBG
  • CBN
  • CBC
  • Delta-9 (THC)
  • Delta-8 (THC)

Benefits of Delta-8

Speaking about the effects that Delta 8 has, we can distinguish the following, the most common ones:

  • A feeling of being weightless
  • Feeling energized and focused
  • Feeling relaxed but at the same time completely clear consciousness
  • Hunger (Delta-8 helps those who have problems with lack of appetite)

But while expecting the effects of Delta 8, it is worth remembering that each organism is individual, and a person may experience stronger or weaker effects.

Delta-8 THC interacts with the human body’s CB1 receptors, according to the National Cancer Institute. These receptors are part of the endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for maintaining and regulating balance throughout the body. Even though Delta-8 is not as psychoactive drug as Delta-9 THC, it has many positive effects on the human body. Let’s take a look at them.

Neuroprotective properties for brain health. Some studies show that Delta-8 THC helps the body produce acetylcholine. This substance is a neurotransmitter and is responsible for memory, cognition, and even arousal. And with almost zero side effects, this is a big advantage.

Stimulation of appetite. Some research showed that Delta-8 THC increased food intake more than Delta-9. The fact that Delta-8 increases appetite suggests that this component in low dosage can be used in the treatment of eating disorders.

Pain-relieving properties. Everyone experiences pain differently. Researchers have confirmed that Delta-8 can relieve physical pain to varying degrees.

Patients with neuropathic pain, inflammatory pain, and other types of pain may be of greatest benefit.

Reduction of anxiety symptoms. Of the proven properties, Delta-8 helps to relax and relieve feelings of anxiety, depression, feelings of hopelessness.

Smoking. There are CBD flowers enhanced by Delta-8 that can be smoked within a regular joint.

Vaping. One of the easiest ways to consume Delta-8 is through vaping with a 510-threaded battery.
