Delta 8 THC, is one of the more than 100+ natural cannabinoids present in Cannabis/Hemp and is commonly abbreviated as Δ8THC, Δ8, D8 and D8 THC. It is an isomer of cannabidiol (“CBD”) and Delta 9 tetrahydrocannabinol (“D9THC”).

D8 is revered for producing psychoactive effects similar to delta-9-THC (the illegal one), but it doesn’t cause some of the negative effects like anxiety or paranoia. The effects of D8 vary from person to person, it’s relaxing, uplifting, pleasantly euphoric but lucid, and not overwhelmingly intoxicating. It is motivating / energizing for some, especially in low doses, and it induces sleep for others, especially in high doses. With the proper dosage, users report feeling much more functional and active with Delta 8 THC compared to Delta 9 THC.
If consumed orally, Delta 8 THC can take 45 minutes to 4 hours to peak, with effects lasting 6 to 12 hours.
The lack or reduction of “mental confusion” and paranoia is also a unique and beneficial trait of D8 THC, as it allows many users the ability to take it while still performing daily tasks. Being really great for, for example, doing outdoor activities like hiking or cycling.
