What is Delta 8?
Delta 9 THC is the main ingredient in cannabis—it is responsible for the intoxicating feeling so often associated with the plant. Delta 8 THC, on the other hand, is a close relative to the more well-known Delta 9. Though related, Delta 8 is not nearly as powerful, due to the placement of the double carbon bond on the 8th (rather than the 9th) carbon. Although a subtle difference physically, this structure diminishes the strength of attachment between the cannabinoid and the CB1 receptors in the brain, nervous system, lungs, kidneys, and liver.
That’s why the Delta 8 gummies we offer online often result in less anxiety, less sedation, and more clarity when compared to Delta 9 THC. Users prefer these when they’re seeking relaxation and relief with about 50-60% the psychoactive potency of Delta 9.
