What is Delta 8?
You’ve likely heard of Delta-9 THC, often simply referred to as THC, because it’s the most popular compound found in the cannabis plant. It’s mostly known for its euphoric and uplifting effects. It’s known as Delta 9 because of the presence of double bonds in its ninth atom.
Delta 8 is a toned-down version of Delta 9. It has a similar molecule makeup to Delta 9 but with a different arrangement of the atomic bonds. As its name implies, in Delta 8 the double bond is located on the eighth atom. This slight difference between the two types of THC causes them to have similar, but slightly different effects on the body.
Delta 8 has made headlines in recent times as the more accessible type of THC and has also been dubbed "diet THC " or "cannabis light" because it has less potent cognitive effects on the user.
Delta 8 THC has about half the effects of Delta 9. It is less likely to cause uncomfortable uneasiness and paranoia, the two most common temporary side effects of taking conventional THC.
Because of the subtle effects of Delta 8, it’s perfect for anyone seeking an overall milder experience, as well as those who are less tolerant to high THC concentration or new users who are trying THC products for the first time.
Benefits of Delta 8 THC
As is the case with all cannabinoids, people can have different experiences when using Delta 8 THC products. Most people use the products to relax and unwind, to boost their mood, or to help them sleep.. It's hard to pinpoint how Delta 8 products will make you feel, but from the responses and reviews of the majority of users that have used Koi CBD Delta 8 THC products, the most common benefits highlighted include:
- Reduced feelings of stress
- Deeper sleep
- Elevated mood
- Healthier appetite support
- Enhanced focus
How To Buy Only Quality Delta-8 Products Online
Because of a lack of regulations, it’s up to delta-8 companies themselves to establish and follow quality standards. There are responsible and trusted proponents of quality, safety, and consistency out there.
So how do you ID a reliable delta-8 brand?
Trusted companies who hold themselves accountable for quality and safety will generally follow certain standards.
Ask the following questions before buying delta-8 online:
- Do you see references to accredited third-party lab testing? Delta-8 products (like all hemp products, including CBD) should be examined by an independent laboratory. These labs not only check for the potency of delta-8 and other cannabinoids, but also screen for microbes, mold, heavy metals, and other possible contaminants.
- Is there a Certificate of Analysis (COA)? Reputable, trustworthy businesses will happily provide you with copies of testing results so you can see exactly what’s in a delta-8 product that you buy.
- What have other people said? Shopping for delta-8 online often offers you the beneficial opportunity to see what other people think about the product through product reviews. Reliable companies who sell delta-8 online will display these reviews – both positive and negative ones – so you can get an idea of what to expect.
- Has the company been around? New delta-8 companies and products pop up every day, and some may cut corners with the hopes of making a quick buck. Check to see whether the company or brand you’re considering has some degree of longevity and a proven track record of providing safe and high-quality cannabinoid products.
Missing references to third-party testing, COAs, product reviews, and longevity could be red flags indicating legitimate safety and quality concerns.
What Does Taking Delta 8 THC Feel Like?
Delta 8 products are still relatively new in the market. As a result, most users are curious about how taking the products would make them feel.
Delta 8 products offers a milder uplifting experience and gives you a more clear-headed yet lightweight feeling. The uplifting effects aren't as intense as ordinary THC.
The strength of the cognitive effects provided by Delta 8 THC depends on the serving size. Smaller servings of about 5 mg to 10 mg tend to provide a sense of calm, elevated mood, and enhanced focus. Users who take Delta 8 in low concentrations also report better stress responses and a stronger sense of tranquility.
When taken in higher servings (above 10mg), Delta 8 products can trigger more powerfully relaxing effects. Users may also experience sedation and some drowsiness that can be helpful for restful sleep. The effect from Delta 8 THC is pleasant and subtle. It’s not as strong as that of Delta 9.
Delta 8 THC can be helpful for unwinding in the evening for eventual better-quality sleep or using promoting healthier appetite habits.
Some of the other highlights of the effects of Delta 8 THC include:
- You feel a sense of peace and clearheadedness
- Higher servings can have a sedation effect
- Time may ‘slow down’ a bit
- You may feel elevated
- Your body may feel relaxed and tension-free
- Lower servings can provide a productive state of mind
- Everyday uneasiness and discomfort are easier to manage
Delta 8 Vs. Delta 9
Delta 8 draws a lot of comparisons to Delta 9. But most users might not be aware of the differences between the two cannabinoids.
Both cannabinoids have an almost similar molecular structure. The only difference is the location of the double chemical bond. On Delta 8, the double bond is in the 8th carbon chain. On Delta 9, it is on the 9th carbon chain.
Visually, the bond difference is quite subtle but it substantially impacts how the molecules interact with the endocannabinoid receptors.
Delta 8 THC is more stable than Delta 9. Delta 9 oxidizes and degrades over time. As a result, it transforms into Delta 8 or CBN (cannabinol), a compound known for its sleep-supporting properties. Delta 8 THC is more stable. It doesn't oxidize to become cannabinol. Its stability makes it a more desirable ingredient for some people because it has a longer shelf life.
Affinity to CB1 receptors
Delta 8 and Delta 9 both bind to the CB1 cannabinoid receptor when consumed. Because of the molecular structure, each compound's affinity to the receptor is distinct. Delta 8 keeps you clearer-minded and tends to produce fewer feelings of anxiousness than Delta 9 because the cannabinoid has a lower binding affinity to CB1 cannabinoid receptors in the brain.
Effects after consumption
The most apparent differences between Delta 8 and Delta 9 are in the effects after consumption. Although Delta 8 also produces uplifting feelings, it is milder and has more clear-minded benefits.
Delta 8 THC Vs. CBD
Delta 8 THC gets lots of comparisons with CBD. While the two products share some comparisons, they are different compounds. Differences between Delta 8 and CBD include:
The primary difference between CBD and Delta 8 THC is that CBD doesn't produce euphoric results like Delta 8.
CBD has also been in the limelight longer. Multiple studies have suggested many health benefits, like its ability to support better sleep, help with natural relief, and provide a sense of calm.
Delta 8 THC is touted to have comparable health and well-being advantages as CBD. Considering the similarities in chemical composition, it is easy to see why the two compounds would find their respective places in people’s routines.
Legalization at state level
CBD has nationwide authorization under the Agricultural Improvement act of 2018, as long as the products are extracted from commercial hemp and contain no more than 0.3% delta-9 THC by dry weight.
Delta 8 is authorized through the same federal law as CBD. Delta 8 THC products also must have a delta-9 THC content material lower than 0.3% and must be derived from the hemp plant.
The legal guidelines for both products can vary at the state level. Most states legalize CBD and Delta-8 for wellness use. In others, they may restrict or limit the purchase of one or both products.
CBD is widely considered to be safe for most users. Millions of people have used it over the past several years. CBD is well-tolerated by most people, although there have been rare cases of some users reporting uncomfortable side effects.
The apparent safety of Delta 8 is also encouraging, however more studies are needed. It has received more or less the same reception as CBD, with most users leaving positive reviews after using the product. Side effects reported have been quite similar to those of CBD, which have been largely mild and rare.
For CBD and Delta 8 THC, consulting a physician before using any product is highly recommended to minimize undesirable effects, especially if you're taking a prescription medication.
