Delta-8 THC: Product Types and Properties
Recently, there's been a lot of talk about cannabinoids around the wellness watercooler. Seekers of holistic solutions to over-the-counter medications have quickly become aware of the many benefits of cannabinoids and other compounds found in the cannabis plant. The most well-known of these is cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Each has had their share of the limelight for some time now. But a newer version of THC product has just begun to receive a lot of attention – and for great reason. This new cannabinoid is called Delta-8 THC, and it is worth learning about.
What Is Delta-8 THC?
Most people have heard a lot about Delta-9 THC in the past. Whenever anyone talks about marijuana and the intoxicating "high" they get from smoking or otherwise ingesting products made from this strain of cannabis plant; they are likely talking about the Delta-9 THC cannabinoid. While Delta-9 THC is found in abundance in the marijuana strain of the cannabis plant, Delta-8 THC is only found in roughly 1% of fully matured plants that have received a lot of sunlight.
Like Delta-9 THC, Delta-8 THC is also found in both the marijuana and hemp varieties of the cannabis plant. Delta-8 THC is nearly molecularly identical to Delta-9 THC, but there are a few differences. The intoxicating effect of Delta-8 THC is less pronounced than the Delta-9 variety. And the "high" that you feel from Delta-8 is reportedly different from that of Delta-9. Whereas Delta-9 is more of a "head high," Delta-8 THC provides more of an overall feeling of happiness and relaxation throughout your body. Users indicate that they can think more clearly on Delta-8 than with Delta-9 THC. Also, Delta-8 THC is not known to produce negative side-effects like anxiety and paranoia that many Delta-9 THC users experience.
The passage of the 2018 Farm Bill made all hemp products federally legal throughout the United States as long as the product's extract contains less than .3% THC by weight. However, the Farm Bill directly and specifically refers to Delta-9 THC and never addresses the Delta-8 variety. Therefore, products with Delta-8 THC are considered to be in the same category as CBD and are legal on a federal level throughout the United States at the time of this article's writing.
Delta-8 THC Product Types and Properties
Now that you have an idea of what Delta-8 THC is, let's look at some of the properties of products containing this wonderful cannabinoid.
Delta-8 THC Tinctures
Tinctures are Delta-8 products in liquid form. The beneficial Delta-8 THC extract is combined with an easily digestible carrier oil to create a product with greater absorption and consistency. The tincture is also often flavored for a more pleasant taste experience. The tincture bottle includes a dropper so that the user can measure out the exact dosage they desire. This dosage should be placed under the tongue and held there for at least a minute. The capillaries under the tongue absorb the tincture and deliver Delta-8 THC directly to the bloodstream for immediate results. Once the remaining liquid is swallowed, this portion is absorbed through the digestive tract for more extended benefits.
Delta-8 THC Capsules
Capsules are a convenient form of ingesting Delta-8 THC. Each gel capsule delivers a specific dose of Delta-8 THC to the user. The dosage is pre-measure so that the user can enjoy consistent benefits with each use. Once swallowed with your favorite beverage, the Delta-8 THC is absorbed through your digestive tract for long-lasting results.
Delta-8 THC Edibles
Edibles are a fun and tasty way to give yourself a treat throughout the day while still receiving all of the benefits from Delta-8 THC. Edibles come in a multitude of varieties, such as rings, worms, and gummy bears. Each edible has a premeasured dose of Delta-8 THC and provides for long-lasting wellness benefits throughout the day.
Delta-8 THC Vape Cartridges
This tasty way of receiving your Delta-8 THC is through vaping the product right into your lungs using a vape pen battery with a conveniently attached cartridge. Once inhaled, the Delta-8 THC-laden vapor quickly absorbs through your lung lining and into your bloodstream. This delivery method provides immediate natural benefits to the user. There is a wide assortment of vape flavors to choose from, so you have a broad selection to keep your taste buds smiling while you receive all of the holistic benefits of Delta-8 THC.
