What is Delta-8?
Delta-8 is a cannabis compound that has become popular because of its similarity to Delta-9 THC, the main compound in cannabis that gets you high, causing euphoria, happiness, sedation, symptom relief, and much more.
Figure 1. Both traditional Delta-9 THC and Delta-8 have the same structure and molecular weight. The only difference is where 1 carbon double bond is found within the molecule.
Delta-8, like Delta-9, binds to the body’s endocannabinoid system, which causes you to feel “high.”
Effects of Delta-8
Consumers report many of the same effects as Delta-9 THC (Traditional THC), such as mild euphoria, happiness, uplifting feelings and relief from some symptoms such as pain.
