What Is Delta 8?
Like CBD, delta 8 is exciting and more available than ever. Maybe you’ve heard a little bit about it, or maybe you haven’t. Regardless, we’re here to catch you up and even recommend the best place to buy delta 8. Before we get to all that, let’s answer the key question here, what is delta 8?
What it is and where it comes from
Delta 8, known formally as delta 8 THC, also comes from Cannabis sativa, or the hemp plant. Chemically speaking, it’s an isomer of delta 9 THC, which is typically referred to in short as just THC, the psychoactive we all know about. Isomer is a fancy way of saying that delta 8 is very similar to delta 9. However, it’s different enough that it comes with its own set of benefits (and rules, or lack thereof).
Delta 8 is THC, but it’s also not. Delta 8 offers psychotropic or psychoactive effects that mainly affect the body, which can be called a “body high.” This is very different from the mild calming or even non-existent effects CBD users may experience. If you’ve ever wondered if CBD creates a body high, the answer is no, at least for the overwhelming majority. This doesn’t mean that CBD can’t make you feel great, too.
The high many users of d8 experience can also be described as uplifting and calming. Some say it offers a unique level of focus. Of course, d8 will affect you differently depending on your body system. It will also depend on how much you take, how you take it, as well as what strains are present.
Benefits of delta 8
As we’ve already begun to discuss, delta 8 is a relative of both CBD and THC. And, furthermore, d8 offers more potent feelings and effects than CBD but less potent than THC. So, if you’ve been on a consistent CBD regimen for quite some time and haven’t found the right CBD product for you, it may be time to consider d8. Of course, you should consult a health professional prior to adding any type of supplement to your routine.
According to early studies as well as the National Cancer Institute, delta 8 can offer some powerful symptomatic relief. This includes relief from anxiety, nausea, pain, as well as the ability to promote or regulate appetite. From a medical standpoint, this is great news for those who have chronic illnesses or who are undergoing harsh treatments like chemotherapy.
Of course, in smaller doses, d8 may be intriguing to you for recreational or supplemental use. In these cases, d8 has shown the same benefits already mentioned, as well as the potential to help with libido, hangovers, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), or menstrual cramps.
Where to buy it
