We all have become well aware of the various benefits and effects of CBD till now. But nowadays, a wide range of other CBD-related products have been introduced in the market. Delta 8 is another chemical compound like CBD which can be extracted from the cannabis Sativa plant. Delta 8 also contains the psychoactive compound THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). This compound is responsible for inducing a high in its users.
In the USA, producing and selling CBD products was legalized at the federal level with the Farm Bill of 2018. These products only contain 0.3% of THC content and thus can not induce a high in people. Dr. Terpeluk, a scientist, has concluded that Delta-8 can only produce a psychoactive effect of about 50% to 80% of THC. This means that even though it will induce a high, it won’t be as effective as THC.
In this article, we will talk about the various benefits one can get from consuming various Delta 8 products like hemp flowers, gummies, capsules, etc.
Benefits Offered By The Delta-8 THC
● It Can Offer You a Smooth High
THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is responsible for triggering a high in its users. Most cannabis users generally use the product to get high and enjoy themselves. Several people who use Delta-8 THC have reported that the product induces a smooth and less psychoactive high. Most researchers believe that Delta-8 is 50% as effective as Delta-9 THC, while others believe that it only produces 10% of the latter’s effects. Thus, we can conclude that Delta-8 THC is less potent than Delta-9 THC.
So, if you want to get high but also maintain some consciousness, Delta-8 THC can be a good option for you to try out. Moreover, consuming this product will let you enjoy yourself without reducing your focus.
● It is an Effective Antiemetic
Delta-8 THC also helps tackle nausea and vomiting. There have been significant reports about using THC to help ease vomiting symptoms. This way, we can compare the properties of Delta-8 to Delta-9 THC. However, Delta-8 produces comparatively lesser psychedelic effects and thus is well suited to help nausea symptoms. Scientists have even tried Delta-8 on young people suffering from cancer and concluded that the product could reduce vomiting and nausea resulting from chemotherapy.
● It Can Wind You Down
A study conducted by the National Cancer Cells Institute reported that Delta-8 THC could offer the same anxiolytic effects as Delta-9 THC. It can induce a high while also making you feel relaxed. Thus, in many ways, Delta-8 THC can work like THC. It can help relieve your anxiety results without producing any psychedelic effects.
People who have used Delta-8 THC have noticed that the product gets them mildly high while improving their focus. Delta-8 THC connects with the CB1 receptors in our brain and the natural and hormonal agents bound to them. This helps lessen anxiety in consumers.
While conventional THC can efficiently tackle anxiety through small doses, its high consumption can cause anxiety in users. On the other hand, Delta-8 THC has lesser psychoactive properties and thus provides a bigger window for healing. Several researchers believe that Delta-8 THC can be consumed in high dosages without causing any anxiety or adverse side effects in users.
● It Can Work As A Appetite Stimulant
While Delta-9 THC can give you a psychedelic experience, Delta-8 THC, on the other hand, is more therapeutic. Researchers have even thought that Delta-8 offers better medicinal properties than Delta-9 THC.
We all know that consuming cannabis increases appetite, but Delta-8 can do a better job. Moreover, it can even control the absorption of nutrients in our bodies. The icing on the cake for the users is that a low dose of Delta-8 can significantly increase your appetite.
● It Can Help Relieve Discomfort
Nowadays, several people are using the Delta-8 flower to relieve the pain in their bodies. Various studies have shown that topical application of Delta-8 THC can tackle continuous pain. This chronic pain can result from inflammation or become a constant if you have Alzheimer’s disease.
Moreover, research studies on THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) have concluded that it can relieve neuropathic and central distress. THC possesses anti-inflammatory properties that can weaken the source of discomfort. Moreover, it can even control the release of hormones such as dopamine, serotonin, and glutamate. These hormones are responsible for controlling the interaction between human cells. Thus, THC can help alleviate discomfort by effectively reducing its perception.
● It Can Boost Your Brain Health And Wellness
Delta-8 THC has become increasingly popular in the last few years because of its numerous benefits to the human brain. Delta-8 THC possesses a potent neuroprotective possibility. This can work in various methods like controlling calcium and potassium networks in the nervous system and preventing adenylyl cyclase. These properties of Delta-8 THC can enhance your mental health. Moreover, Delta-8 THC possesses substances like acetylcholine and choline that can tackle degenerative mental health problems. It can even increase cell generation and their development in the nerves. This can considerably boost your mental wellness and brain health.
As Delta-8 THC is relatively new in the market, there isn’t enough research about its benefits and similarities to CBD and THC. Although some studies have concluded that Delta-8 THC can help relieve medical ailments like chronic pain, anxiety, stress, and even depression. Innately, the cannabis plants possess a small amount of Delta-8 THC. However, we can obtain higher amounts of Delta-8 THC by synthetically creating it from CBD. This means that several CBD products that you buy could contain higher levels of Delta-8 THC than they naturally should. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has advised people that several chemicals used to synthesize Delta-8 THC from CBD could have adverse side effects. As the product is similar to THC, its side effects include hallucinating, vomiting, losing consciousness, facing trouble while standing, losing memory, experiencing a dry mouth. You can even notice a significant change in your appetite and weight. Thus, it is crucial to practice caution while trying out Delta-8, and there is a range of products from tinctures to edibles and vapes at your disposal.
