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. 

Side effects range similar to Delta-9 THC including dry mouth, red eyes, “munchies”, short-term memory loss.

Studies have shown Delta-8 to help more with paranoia and anxiousness than Delta-9.

Delta-8 vs. CBD
