What Is Delta 8 THC

Delta 8, D8, or Delta 8 THC is a less-available cannabinoid in about just 0.1% of the plant’s general chemical buildup.

Although it is naturally occurring, this cannabinoid is mainly produced via isomerization, which we will explain in further detail below. 

This cannabinoid is very interesting because cannabis users can benefit from the vast amount of beneficial effects without getting stoned.

However, keep in mind that this product may still come up in lab tests, so if you’re to be checked, it’s best to keep away from these products altogether.

How Is Delta 8 THC Made

Delta 8 THC is typically derived from hemp, although some producers may use cannabis plants.

The main difference between these is the concentration of Delta 9 which would be found. However, it is essential to check what the brand you want to consume uses.

Many laboratories use cannabinoid conversion methods to produce Delta 8 THC by replicating a natural process in the plant.

Typically CBG, the ‘’mother cannabinoid’’, undergoes conversion to become a different cannabinoid, and this process can be replicated in a lab with Delta 9 or CBD as sources. 

The brands we put on the list have been selected because they guarantee their source and process. You know that the drinks have hemp-derived Delta 8, which is federally legal and lab tested for safety.

Delta 8 THC vs CBD

It is very easy to compare these two substances, but we must never confuse or mix them up as they have a significant difference: CBD is not psychoactive.

In reality, Delta 8 THC is most comparable to Delta 9 THC, but some users have had their fair bit of misinformation and believe that CBD’s cannabinoid is most related to D8.

Delta 8 THC vs Delta 9 THC

Delta 8 THC and Delta 9 THC are almost identical. These compounds look quite the same if analyzed rapidly but differ when you look closer.

D8 contains its bond in the 8th carbon chain, while Delta 9 has it in the 9th.

Delta 8 THC and THC, or Delta 9 THC, are very similar regarding the effects and benefits they provide us.

However, these compounds vary in their strength and psychotropic capacity. Do consider that there is still some work to be done when it comes to research on these substances.

From what we know, Delta 8 THC has lower psychotropic capacities.

This means it will provide the user with a general feel-good, mind-boosting, and uplifting feeling and experience, without the heavy mind-buzz and psychoactive effects of THC.

Will Delta 8 Get Me High?

Yes, in theory, Delta 8 has minor psychoactive effects that may produce a mild buzz or feel-good sensation, which is commonly associated with Delta 9.

Delta 8 will produce some effects associated with traditional cannabis consumption, but these come in a more controlled and less-potent experience.

Generally speaking, you might experience benefits in your state of mind and consciousness but do not feel any strong psychoactive or hallucination effects.

Is Delta 8 Safe?

Delta 8 THC has been studied for some time now, but there is still much groundwork to be done on its complete description and definition.

However, we do have sufficient information and knowledge on this substance and know it is a safe and reliable substance that can benefit our body and mind rather than harm it.

The most crucial aspect of Delta 8, when we’re considering its safety and reliability, is that it is one of the most ‘’conservative’’ of cannabinoids.

This is because it is pretty milder than THC and needs a very high dose (literally higher than that which can be consumed in a day) to produce harmful or even lethal effects.

If you happen to consume too much D8, you will probably need a snack, a lie-down, or a brief siesta to control the secondary effects which it may produce.

If you feel side effects, like paranoia, tachycardia, a state of confusion, or others, you must stop consuming, drink some water and stick to the couch, but you will probably feel the effects pass in a couple of hours at most.
