Delta 8 THC is a powerful relaxant that can help reduce stress, improve concentration and sleep patterns, relieve pain, reduce anxiety, increase appetite and alleviate nausea and vomiting. It is a minor cannabinoid found in small amounts in the cannabis plant, and it binds to both CB1 and CB2 receptors throughout the body. This binding capacity helps the cannabinoid convince the body to better regulate pain and anxiety. It also increases levels of choline and acetylcholine, which may be useful in treating degenerative mental illnesses.
Compared to Delta 9 THC, Delta 8 appears to provide similar levels of relaxation and pain relief but with fewer cognitive distortions such as an altered sense of time, problems with short-term memory and difficulty concentrating. Participants were also much less likely to experience distressing mental states such as anxiety and paranoia. Many participants commented that they could consume Delta 8 THC and remain productive, while they used Delta 9 products for recreational purposes due to their more potent and mind-altering effects.Delta 8 THC has been studied for its potential therapeutic benefits. A 2004 study analyzed the effect of Delta 8 on appetite control and concluded that even low doses stimulated an increase in food intake.
A 1995 study noted that Delta 8 appears to have no negative side effects while eliminating nausea. Children who underwent chemotherapy for cancer had a 100% success rate in reducing nausea in more than 480 treatments in total.Delta 8 THC is also known for its ability to boost appetite even better than Delta 9 THC, as well as regulate nutrient absorption. It is important to note that Delta 8 products, like other hemp products including CBD oil, are likely to also have traces of Delta 9 THC.The biggest difference users find is that a Delta 9 high can make a user feel out of control, while a Delta 8 helps them feel like they are still in control. One difference is that CBD is legal in all 50 states, while Delta 8 THC is only legal in a growing mosaic of states.It is important to note that if a child eats or is exposed to Delta 8 products such as gummies or candy, seek immediate medical attention.
Additionally, the FDA is concerned about the proliferation of products containing Delta 8 THC and are marketed for therapeutic or medical purposes, even though they have not been approved by the FDA.In conclusion, Delta 8 THC offers many potential benefits such as reducing stress, improving concentration and sleep patterns, relieving pain, reducing anxiety, increasing appetite and alleviating nausea and vomiting. It binds to both CB1 and CB2 receptors throughout the body which helps the body better regulate pain and anxiety.
