Why is Delta 8 THC BETTER than Delta 9?

What is Delta 8 THC?

Delta-8-Tetrahydrocannabinol is a cannabinoid that is found in small amounts in the hemp plant. It is very similar to Delta 9, however Delta-8-THC interacts with your endocannabinoid system in different ways, producing anxiety-free and relaxing highs.

Delta 8 THC and delta 9 THC are both cannabis products. Delta 8 THC is explicitly derived from the hemp plant and is considered legal in the United States. Delta 8 THC and delta 9 THC offer similar effects, but each has unique properties. Here are some of the similarities and differences between D8 and D9:

  1. Delta 8 THC has a relaxing profile. It can be sedative, so users have a more comfortable and mellower ‘high’ experience.
  2. Delta 9 THC has a bidirectional effect. In small doses, it can be sedative, but in larger quantities, it tends to be stimulating and can cause hallucinogenic effects.
  3. Delta 8 THC is about 2/3 as potent as delta 9 THC, so it offers a less potent psychoactive experience
  4. Delta 8 THC can be made from the hemp plant, whereas delta 9 THC is from the marijuana plant. Since D8 comes from hemp, D8 products are legal in many places that marijuana isn’t
  5. D8 and D9 have similar but unique molecular structures.
  6. D8 is less likely to cause anxiety or paranoia than D9
  7. D8 products can be easily ordered online, shipped, and delivered

D8 has been described by some as “light weed” where D9 is the full fledged paranoia educing effects that can dramatically impact your heart rate, breathing and other bodily systems making some users panic.
