What is Delta 8 THC
To understand Delta 8 THC, we must first identify what Delta 9 THC is. Delta 9 THC is what we know as THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol. It is the chemical component responsible for the fogginess or the stoned feeling that people describe getting after smoking marijuana.
The Sister Compound (D-8 THC)
Delta 8 THC is NOT the same thing as Delta 9 THC. They are very similar chemically, with only one chemical bond being different. The differences begin with the aforementioned fogginess. That feeling is highly reduced.
Interestingly enough, D-8 still has most of, if not all of the benefits of Delta 9 THC. D-8 Still reduces pain, nausea, and boosts libido, same as D-9. D-8 is said to target different cannabinoid receptors (The part of the human brain responsible for dealing with this kind of chemical). This causes most users to have a feeling of general well being. This is because the cannabinoid receptors targeted are those that deal with homeostasis, which is the body’s feeling when it is not in a “Fight or Flight” Mode. This makes D-8 THC very effective against things like depression and anxiety.
Who Does This Help?
Those Struggling with Mental Illness
As mentioned above, Delta 8 THC is a very useful chemical for dealing with mental illnesses such as; Depression, Anxiety, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This is because the part of the brain targeted by D-8 is that part of the brain that deals with your fight or flight response. Users have reported a feeling of general well being while D-8 was in use. This will also help people who have tried other remedies such as CBD and other medical treatment regimes and have had little to no results.
People Struggling with Cancer
That’s right. Cancer. One study done on mice infected with lung cancer showed that the mice treated with D-8 THC had, after twenty days of treatment, reduced tumor sizes! This study also found that the survival time of the mice with this strain of THC went up.

People who struggle with Memory Loss (Alzheimer’s or Dementia):
While D-8 THC can treat all the before-mentioned conditions such as anxiety, depression, and possibly cancer, it can also help strengthen memory! This is proven by one study that found that mice treated with D-8 THC have increased levels of Acetylcholine. This is a key chemical in the brain responsible for learning and memory. This leads specialists to believe that D-8 THC could be a type of treatment used on those with Alzheimer’s or diseases like it.
How To Use D-8 THC
The best and easiest way to use D-8 is by vaping, oils, or anything that can be absorbed under the tongue. This is because the chemical will go directly into your bloodstream and to your brain. Meaning, you will get 100% of the chemical’s effects.
While edibles have a different effect, because of the conversion that happens in your digestive tract, you still get all of the effects from the Delta-8 Edibles. Due to the transformation from Delta 8 THC into Delta 11 THC in your digestive tract, you may feel a little bit of a high.
