In recent years, there has been a lot of buzz around Delta 8 THC, also known as Delta 8. This compound is derived from CBD and is said to provide a range of benefits, including pain relief and increased appetite. Some people also claim that it can help you feel more relaxed and euphoric.

So, does Delta 8 actually get you high? The answer is yes, but the effects are said to be less intense than those ofDelta 9 THC (the main psychoactive compound found in cannabis). Delta 8 is also said to be less likely to cause anxiety and paranoia than Delta 9.

What is Delta 8?

Delta 8 is a type of cannabinoid that is found in hemp plants. It is similar to THC, the main psychoactive compound in cannabis, but it is much weaker. Delta 8 only interacts with a few cannabinoid receptors in the brain, so it does not cause the same psychoactive effects as THC. However, Delta 8 still has some effects on the brain, so it is important to know what it does before using it.

The Different Types of Delta 8

There are different types of Delta 8. The two most common are:
-Isolates: These are pureDelta 8THC molecules. They’re commonly found in tinctures and vape oils.
-Broad-spectrum: Broad-spectrumDelta 8 products contain many of the same cannabinoids and terpenes as full-spectrum products, but they don’t contain any THC.

So, which type of Delta 8 is best for you? It depends on your needs and preferences. If you’re looking for a potent product that will give you a strong psychoactive effect, then isolates are a good choice. If you’re looking for a product that’s less likely to cause anxiety or paranoia, then broad-spectrum may be a better option.

The Benefits of Delta 8

Recent studies have shown that Delta 8 provides a number of benefits for those who use it. These benefits include:

– anti-inflammatory properties
– pain relief
– anxiety relief
– stress relief
– improved sleep quality
– increased appetite

Delta 8 is also said to provide users with a sense of well-being and relaxation, without the psychoactive effects associated with THC. This makes it an appealing option for those who want to avoid the high associated with THC but still experience the benefits of cannabis.

The Side Effects of Delta 8

Delta 8 is a cannabinoid that is found in trace amounts in the cannabis plant. However, it can also be produced synthetically. Unlike THC, Delta 8 does not bind to the CB1 receptor in the brain and does not produce a psychoactive effect. However, it does bind to the CB2 receptor and can produce some effects on the body, including:

– Reducing anxiety
– Reducing pain
– Helping with sleep
– Increasing appetite
– Reducing inflammation

Delta 8 can also cause some side effects, including:
– Dizziness
– Dry mouth
– Fatigue
– Low blood pressure

How to Use Delta 8

Delta 8 is a cannabinoid that is similar to THC, the main psychoactive compound in cannabis. Unlike THC, Delta 8 does not cause problems with coordination or memory, and it does not have a strong psychoactive effect. However, Delta 8 does have some psychoactive effects, and it can produce a feeling of relaxation and euphoria.

To use Delta 8, you can take it orally by capsule or by drops placed under your tongue. You can also smoke or vape it. The effects of Delta 8 typically last for two to three hours.

If you want to experience the psychoactive effects of Delta 8 without smoking or vaping, you can take it as an oral tincture. Tinctures are usually taken by drops placed under the tongue, but they can also be added to food or drinks. The effects of Delta 8 tinctures typically last for four to six hours.


From what we can tell, Delta 8 does seem to provide some level of psychoactive effect, though it is milder than what is typically associated with THC. In terms of its potential as a medicinal compound, Delta 8 seems to offer some promise in the relief of anxiety and pain. However, more research is needed to fully understand the therapeutic potential of this cannabinoid.
