What It Is

The high is pleasant and relaxing so what is Delta 8 THC and how is it different from Delta 9, to answer that we first have to look at how Delta 8 is produced. You see, Delta 8 is naturally occurring in cannabis flower but in small amounts.

How It’s Made

Delta-8 THC is an isomer, or minor chemical variant, of Delta-9 THC. It occurs only at minuscule levels in natural cannabis. High levels of Delta-8 THC are produced by chemically converting CBD or Delta-9 THC through a process known as isomerization.

The Benefits

Not only is delta 8 THC a potent relaxant that can relieve stress, but it can also improve your focus and sleep patterns, ease pain, reduce anxiety, boost appetite, and relieve nausea and vomiting.


You may have heard about Delta 8 THC as of recently, more places are open to carrying it as the laws have opened a flood gate of interest. The law that allowed such developments in recent years is the 2018 Farm Bill a law that allows the cultivation of hemp derived products. A stroke of the pen as brought us numerous new products and one of them is Delta 8 THC.

In Today’s episode I want to cover the difference between Delta 8 THC, Delta 9 THC and CBD. The question has been a popular one lately, I myself have used this new form of THC since late 2019. Like you I was curious in these new developments and read as much as I could regarding the new methods of producing different forms of THC products.

Chemically Delta 8 is an isomer of Delta 9 and the only difference between the two molecules is the location of a double bond between two carbons. What has been determined is that Delta 8 is indeed a milder version which creates similar euphoric experiences but not as intense.

The same is true regarding the differences between Delta 8 and CBD except CBD does not create the effects that Delta 8 does and in itself produces are benefits to users.

To take a closer look at the benefits of Delta 8 we are seeing something interesting. Users are reporting similar benefits once observed in medicinal cannabis users, back when medicinal cannabis was a thing.

Under the recreational laws cannabis is potent with high levels of Delta 9 THC but little of the well known CBD which I consider it and the other cannabinoids the true medicinal value behind the plant.

These levels of cannabinoids are near zero which has serious implications on users health and well being long term, what that will look like I don’t know but have seen some indicators such as heightened anxiety to name one of a few.

So if your new to cannabis my advice would be consider trying Delta 8 THC as the first go to, you may find yourself pleasantly surprised at how much you enjoy the mild high and soothing properties.

Thanks for the ears, eyes and your time.
