Delta 8 Explained
What is Delta 8 THC?
Delta 8 THC is a compound found in the cannabis plant. Traditionally, it’s not found in large enough amounts to form a concentrate. However, in lab, we perform reactions to convert Delta 9 into Delta 8 THC called isomerization.
What makes it so special?
Until recently, many thought it would be impossible to create a Delta 8 THC concentrate. Studies have shown that Delta 8 THC is similar to Delta-9 THC, but has slightly different effects, benefits, and variations.
According to the National Cancer Institute, Delta 8 THC has anti-anxiety, pain relieving and brain-protecting properties. In a 1995 study performed by Shaare Zedek Hospital in Jerusalem, Israel, Delta 8 THC appeared to have antiemetic properties, and a 2004 study by the Hebrew University-Hadassah Medical School in Jerusalem, Israel found Delta 8 THC to be an appetite stimulant.
Why is it helpful to understand different cannabinoids?
As a society, we’ve just begun to scratch the surface on the potential of cannabinoids. The cannabis plant is made up of over 100 cannabinoids and all cannabinoids have a different type of effect on the body. It’s important to understand the effects of different cannabinoids in order to determine what cannabis product will best suit your needs. Weather its Delta 8 infused Flower or Delicious Delta Dabs
Are there any important factors to consider when picking cannabis for medical use?
The use of cannabis as a medicine shouldn’t be taken lightly. There are lots of factors one would need to consider if they were looking to use cannabis medicinally. It’s recommended to consult a doctor when looking to begin any type of cannabis treatment.
In my experience, there is no hard-and-fast rule to prescribing cannabis as a medicine. Patients who have found success using cannabis have had to use a trial and error approach to finding what works best for them.
