If you are wondering, “What does Delta 8 mean,” we have so much to catch you up on! In this blog we will help you understand what Delta 8 THC is and how it is different from Delta 9 THC. Let’s begin by getting a good understanding of Delta 9 THC.

What is Delta 9 THC?

So, you have certainly heard of Cannabis, Marijuana, or Pot and you probably have some knowledge of the term THC. Delta 9 is THC (or more accurately, the original and most well-known version of THC). THC is an abbreviation of Tetrahydrocannabinol. This chemical compound occurs naturally in Cannabis plants, more heavily in Marijuana and in lesser amounts in Hemp. THC is the compound in Cannabis that makes you feel “high.” 

Delta 9 THC is illegal federally unless it occurs in 0.3 percent or less by dry weight. 

Manmade Delta 9 THC is the main ingredient in several pharmaceutical drugs that are approved by the FDA to treat nausea and vomiting of cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and inappetence and weight loss in HIV and AIDS patients.

Delta 8 is another natural chemical compound found in Cannabis. Delta 8 THC isn’t as prevalent in Cannabis as Delta 9 THC is. It occurs more frequently in Hemp than Marijuana, whereas Delta 9 occurs more frequently in Marijuana. Delta 8 is federally legal if it is derived from Hemp and contains less than 0.3 percent THC (Delta 9). Delta 8 is very similar to Delta 9. In fact, their molecular structures are identical except the location of a double bond. Delta 9 tends to result in stronger effects than Delta 8. You may need about twice as much Delta 8 THC by milligram to achieve similar effects to Delta 9 THC. Delta 8 products can help you relax and feel great without the legal issues that still surround Marijuana and Delta 9. 

However, Delta 8 isn’t a miracle product. Because the different THCs are so similar and because Delta 8 products can contain trace amounts of Delta 9 THC, you may get a positive result on a drug test.
