Delta 8 THC is one of the many cannabinoids found in a hemp plant. As we know, there are over 100 cannabinoids in the hemp plant. The most famous is cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) - also known as Delta 9 THC. Delta 8 THC is very similar to Delta 9 THC, except people note that its effects are less psychoactive compared to Delta 9 THC.
In the hemp plant, Delta 8 THC occurs in a very small amount, so to get it, cannabis manufacturers purify THC, and it goes through various filtration processes. Delta 8 is a degraded form of THC. It is more stable than THC and has a longer shelf life, and can be used for various medical purposes.
Many users of Delta 8 THC note that it does not make you feel like THC. It inhibits THC's best properties without the feeling of intense high, dizziness, and anxiety. Delta 8 THC can help with pain, give a sense of relaxation, and support better sleep. Moreover, Delta-8 can be helpful with nausea and stimulate the appetite. It also has neuro-protective, anti-anxiety properties.
If you were using only CBD products, and after some time, they become less helpful than before, it can happen due to the body's resistance to CBD's effects. In this case, you might want to try something strong that can help with your condition. And you look for products that contain THC. Meantime, you don't want to feel THC's psychoactive properties. And this is where you can try using Delta 8 THC products. It's like a middle ground between CBD and THC, the light version of THC with less psychoactive properties. It may increase the heart rate, cause dryness in the mouth and throat.
As all cannabis-based products can have different effects on every person, it is recommended to start with low doses and slowly increase it to find your desired dosage that can be right for you.
