Delta 8 THC is one of the many compounds, or cannabinoids, found in the Cannabis sativa plant. It is estimated to be between 50 and 75% more psychoactive than delta-9 THC, but it only occurs naturally at very low levels in the cannabis plant. Despite its low natural occurrence, delta-8 THC products are widely available in CBD stores, convenience stores, gas stations, dispensaries and on the internet. These products are often sold as vaporizer cartridges, oils, gummies, candies and other edibles.
The Michigan Poison Control Center has warned the public about these products due to misleading packaging and potential adverse health effects from accidental use. The agency is particularly concerned about how attractive delta-8 products can be for children who don't realize that they can cause a high. Hemp Roundtable, an industry group, has taken a firm stance against intoxicating forms of delta-8, which exceed the approved limit of 0.3%.Although delta-8 is less psychoactive than delta-9, it still has psychoactive properties that can cause significant toxicity. If you or someone you know experiences adverse effects from delta-8 THC, it's important to seek medical treatment right away by calling 911 or going to the local emergency department.
Despite the proliferation of these products in recent years, there is very little research on the potential health effects of DELTA-8.Any information published on this website or under this brand is not intended to be a substitute for medical advice, and you should not take any action before consulting a health professional.
