What is The Delta-8-THC Cannabinoid?

Is This Something I Should Know About?


Delta 8 is one of the 4 most typical cannabinoids that helps treat symptoms without being as psychoactive. You’d think that being a common cannabinoid, we’d know more about it.

If you consider yourself a cannabis-connoisseur and you still don’t know what I am talking about, don’t fret. I’ve got you covered on the information you’ll need to know about this astonishingly medicinal cannabis product.

Delta 8 is just now starting to raise eyebrows in the industry due to its ability to function just like CBD, but with much more noticeable effects.

Much like CBD, Delta 8 is less-psychoactive- meaning it is physically sedative rather than mentally sedative. When consumed, patients will not experience the psychoactive effects that are common with cannabis- no social anxiety, no couch lock, and no paranoia.

CBD and THC bind to 2 different receptors while Delta 8 binds to both. With the act of binding to both receptors, Delta 8 creates a more comfortable and social effect.


Delta 8 is chock-full with medicinal values that help fight panic and anxiety, combat nausea and vomit, stimulate appetite, and acts as a mild painkiller. It also delivers support for nerve cells and has been known to have cancer cells self-destruct.


When ingested, Delta 8 resembles a much stronger version of CBD with a smoother intake combined with a sweeter flavor. Patients will experience the medicinal physical effects without encountering the mentally foggy or “stoned” feeling. Delta 8 actually boosts a channel in the brain that plays a role in learning and memory, with more mental clarity and creates less of a head high.

First studies of Delta 8 were researched in children with cancer who were going undergoing chemotherapy. When Delta 8 was administered, vomiting was completely prevented and other negative side effects were reported as minimal.

In other study done in 1974, Delta 8 was studied in attempt to prove that it was causing harm to the immune systems of mice, but what they actually found was this cannabinoid’s cancer-killing capabilities.

The cannabis industry has come out of the shadows to produce, experiment and research, with compounds like Delta 8 to deliver patients with the medicine that works best with their body.

If you are someone looking for profound physical relief without leaving you mentally bogged down and out of tune with your senses, then Delta 8 is the ideal cannabis product for you.
