What is delta 8

There is a lot of talk about the new cannabinoid delta-8-THC.  Little do people know it is not new at all.  The first documentation of delta-8-THC was in 1974.  In a study According to the US National Cancer Institute, delta-8-THC is defined as a counterpart of THC with effects that prevent the aging of nerve cells, relieves pain, fights anxiety and panic attacks, and inhibits nausea.  Delta- 8-THC binds to CB1 and CB2 receptors in the central nervous system, exhibiting less than 65-70% of the potency found in delta-9-THC.

Delta-8-THC is associated with several health benefits.  One benefit, in particular, is its cancer-fighting abilities. In 1974 a study examining mice with tumors found that delta-9 slowed tumor growth after many days, while delta-8-THC combined with CBN caused the tumors to shrink after 20 days. 

Delta-8-THC vs. Delta-9-THC

A 1973 study released the statistic of delta-8 having 65-70% less psychoactive effects as delta-9 or less than 2/3.  Delta-8 THC gives people the ability to gain many of the same benefits of delta-9-THC, but with less of an actual high.  This comparison is comforting for many people who say that delta-9 -THC products sold today are too potent and raise their anxiety levels.  

As mentioned above, this lack of psychoactive effects makes users experience less anxiety, making for a good alternative for users who want the benefits of THC – medical or otherwise without feeling like they have no control.  Every human being is different when it comes to the body's reaction to delta-8 THC.  Many people report that it produces a feeling that is less heavy than Delta-9-THC, energizing, and provides clarity and relaxation.
