Real Health | What The Heck Is Delta-8?

The Legal High? How A New Product Is Cornering The Cannabis Market With Legal Highs.

"The difference is, Delta-8 won't get you TOO high. It gets you the right kind of buzzed. A clean headed high that allows you to function without suffering from couch lock or being to wasted to function. With Delta-8, you get the benefits of the THC, but without the same side effects. From the limited research, we've also seen how much stronger it's medicinal effects are. Stronger pain and inflammtion relief. Strong anxiety and depression relief. Social anxiety - paranoia - gone. We think that Delta-8 will take over the medicial cannabis industry because it's truly provides the best of both worlds." Donaghey told us.

What is Delta-8?

According to the National Cancer Institute, Delta-8 (short for delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol) is a relative of THC and exhibits similar antiemetic, anxiolytic, appetite-stimulating, analgesic, and neuroprotective properties.

While it features many of the same benefits of THC (known as Delta-9), Delta-8 (also known as D8) has a lower psychoactive potency. In other words, it works well to soothe and prevent anxiety, pain, and vomiting without creating an identical high. (But, let it be known: You will absolutely feel heady when using this product-more on that later.)

Delta-8 is able to manifest these benefits thanks to its ability to bind to the same cannabinoid receptors in the brain that THC does. Despite being metabolized the same way, according to Donaghey-the effects are significantly dialed back. “Users report a clearer, calmer, and more composed high compared to what they get when consuming typical marijuana,” he explains. “Think of it as the diet or lite version of THC.”

Is Delta-8 Legal?

Before getting into how D8 differs from THC and CBD, let’s get straight to the point with what you’re undoubtedly wondering: Is Delta-8 legal? You betcha.

“Delta-8 is legal everywhere CBD is,” Donaghey says. “The 2018 Hemp Farm Bill allows for the manufacturing and sale of any product derived from hemp containing less than 0.3% Delta-9-THC, the main psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. The Controlled Substance Act specifically makes amendments that protect the manufacturing of any tetrahydrocannabinol (again, as long as it has legally compliant levels of D9) derived from hemp by removing them from the list of Schedule I narcotics, which is why D8 is legal.”

What's The Difference Between Delta-8 and THC and Delta-8 and CBD?

“Both Delta-8-THC and Delta-9-THC-the cannabinoid commonly referred to as ‘THC’-that are known for getting you ‘high' contain double bonds,” explains Donaghey. "Many consumers do not enjoy consuming Delta-9-THC because of the negative feelings typically associated with taking it: anxiety, paranoia, cloudy thinking, and dry mouth and eyes. In contrast, these same consumers enjoy using Delta-8-THC because it does not cause these undesirable effects.” In fact, he says that “many consumers believe that Delta-8-THC produces a mild and clear psychoactive/cerebral buzz coupled with an uplifting effect on the body."

"And, unlike THC, it doesn’t leave you feeling drained or exhausted after. “It’s a smooth come up, a nice buzzing ride, and smooth come down,” he says."

"I feel like with Delta-8, you can make the most out of your day. You can enjoy the high, while still being clear-headed, coherent and not have to worry about paranoia, getting too high, or a harsh come down. Not to mention - you don't have to worry about the legality of it."

"Given that D8 and CBD connect to the same receptors in the brain, Bush says they have many of the same effects. “Sometimes people say CBD doesn’t do anything for them. That’s because it’s not psychoactive,” he says. “CBD has a lot of behind-the-scenes benefits that people aren’t aware of because you can’t always feel them. You don’t immediately feel smarter or healthier when you take omega-3, for example, but that doesn’t mean it’s not working wonders for your body. Delta-8 is like that but gives your brain more immediate feedback. It offers all those same benefits that CBD does-it has been shown to potentially offer neuroprotective benefits; relief from pain, nausea, inflammation; and can potentially help with appetite and stress relief-with more of a psychoactive effect, but, again, far less psychoactive than THC.”

Because of this, D8 is the perfect option for folks who crave something more than CBD but not as intense as THC.

While research has been around for decades, very few companies found manufacturing cost effective, so it was usually left as part of a "full-spectrum" product and not used on its own.

Trevor, SoCal: Uses Delta-8 to replace traditional marijuana

"Honestly, I didn't think I'd like Delta-8. Who wants weed lite when you can have actual weed? But - it's perfect for me. I can use it daily to help me manage my mental health. And it's perfect for the weekends - I take a few extra, get the high of regular THC without the hangover. And I never feel like I am risking getting "too high." I've actually converted a bunch of my friends to using it. And I like that it's much more descrete. I have to go on a lot of audtions. I never know what's going to happen. I keep a few of them in my pocket and use it about 20 minutes before I go in to a room. It makes me calm, cool and collected."



Amiee, Portland: Uses Delta-8 to manage her anxiety

"I've been on lexapro, prozac, wellbutrin, and a thousand others. My doctor's other genius idea - xanax! Do you know how addicitive that stuff is? Do you know how much it screws with your brain? I do. And I wanted no part of it. Unfortunately for me, traditional THC made me spiral into way deeper anxiety and panic. The paranoia was too great. So when I read about Delta-8, I decided to try it. It was perfect for me! It gave me the anxiety relief I need, without the panic. It has been such a lifesaver for me. I LOVE IT."
