The natural concentration of delta-8-THC in cannabis and hemp is low, so most delta-8-THC is produced synthetically in a laboratory. People use delta-8-THC for nausea and vomiting caused by drug treatment for cancer, glaucoma, sleep problems, and many other conditions, but there is no strong scientific evidence to support these uses. Relieving mild anxiety is one of the main reasons people turn to delta-8-THC. The cannabinoid offers a natural alternative to prescription medications for anxiety, but you should consult your medical professional first.
Delta-8 THC is a psychoactive and intoxicating cannabinoid that is synthetically produced as a by-product of CBD or delta-9 THC. THC delta-8 is a psychoactive substance that is known to be less potent, but chemically similar to THC delta-9, the compound often referred to as THC that produces an intoxicating “high”. Delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol, often referred to as delta-8 THC, is an intoxicatingly psychoactive cannabinoid with effects similar to those of delta-9 THC. However, a key difference is that delta-8-THC is one of more than twelve minor cannabinoids, while delta-9-THC is a major cannabinoid.
Delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol (delta-8-THC) is a minor cannabinoid found in small amounts in the cannabis plant. In addition, in some states where recreational cannabis is legal, such as Colorado, delta-8 THC products have been explicitly banned. Delta-8-THC products, like other hemp products, including CBD oil, are likely to contain traces of delta-9-THC. Delta-8-THC in cannabis is not known to cause these side effects at the same level as delta-9-THC.
Delta-8-THC is sometimes mislabeled and illegally marketed, so be wary of any specific medical claims and the cannabinoid content. It's important for consumers to know that delta-8 THC products have not been evaluated or approved by the FDA for safe use in any context. More information is needed to identify the possible health benefits related to delta-8 THC, but issues of legality make this research difficult. The FDA is aware of the growing concern surrounding the delta-8 THC products currently being sold online and in stores.
Compared to delta-9-THC, delta-8-THC may have fewer psychoactive side effects, but the jury is still out. There is no definitive evidence to suggest how delta-8-THC can help, especially when it comes to synthetically produced delta-8-THC, and the harm could nullify any potential benefits. Delta-8-THC isn't necessarily illegal (yet), but it's not necessarily safe, at least when it comes to the synthetic product derived from CBD. In addition, the FDA is concerned about the proliferation of products that contain delta-8 THC and that are marketed for therapeutic or medical purposes, even if they have not been approved by the FDA.
