delta-8-Tetrahydrocannabinol missouri


What is it and how is it different than other THC substances? 

Delta-8-Tetrahydrocannabinol is a substance found in the Cannabis plant. Delta 8 THC, as it is more commonly known, is only one of the 80-100 cannabinoids found in modern day marijuana plants. But how does it differ from regular thc?

Regular THC, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol or Delta 9 THC, is the most dominant ingredient alongside CBD. Although easily confused, due to similar naming, Delta 8 and Delta 9 Tetrahydrocannabinol are not one in the same. Delta 8 THC is actually found in small amounts, vs the latter.Making it very typical that it is usually made from Hemp CBD plants. Therefore, the high you get from it is a more mellow version of high. However, most people buying this product are doing so for the suggested benefits vs the psychoactive effects.

Benefits of Delta 8 THC

  • It has been recommended by many for relieving nausea and vomiting
  • Legal on a federal level
  • Half the potency of Delta 9 THC, resulting in less paranoia / anxiety
  • Natural Sleeping Aid
  • Beneficial for treatment of PTSD

Those are just a few of the many benefits of Delta 8 THC. How about risks or side effects?

Risks of Delta-8-Tetrahydrocannabinol

  • Not evaluated or approved by the FDA
  • Possible to get the wrong type of THC, resulting in exposure to Delta 9 THC, as per FDA reports
  • Although milder, there are still psychoactive effects, which would impair you from being able to operate at 100% functionality.
  • Delta 8 THC carts are known to sometimes include unsafe chemicals
  • Not safe for children or pets

Basically, if you’re after a calmer, more mellow high with all the benefits of regular marijuana, this is what you need. However, If you are desiring a stronger than regular weed strain, you will be let down. One last thing from me to you, be sure to check all cannabis products you purchase to be sure you are not buying Delta 8 products when you aren’t intending to.
