We must first discuss where this cannabinoid was first found.
In 1965 it was discovered by Dr. Raphael Mechoulam a.k.a The Father of Cannabis. This discovery was one of many by the great doctor.
Now why so much hype about this now? Let's look at why it is a possible benefit as a cannabinoid.
Like with CBD and anything when you introduce a new substance to your body, it’s always good to know what exactly it is and where it comes from. Delta 8 is a cannabinoid mainly derived from CBD ISOLATE as it is a cannabinoid that is in slim content in cannabis, but it is one of many compounds over 113 of these amazing molecules.
Delta 8 like most cannabinoids they interact with the receptors of the endocannabinoid system (ECS for short). The ECS is responsible for helping maintain the other major bodily systems, including your nervous system and immune system. With 2 receptors CB1 AND CB2.
The Delta 8 thc produces a mild high like Delta 9 thc, but with many reporting less of the STONED feeling.
Now back to how it is made.
The industry is taking CBD Isolate and using very harsh chemicals to create the Delta 8 THC as again it is in little content in the plant naturally. Then refined into as so far some what safe product yet data is still out for long term use of this synthetic made cannabinoid.
This is still THC. It is just another Delta. It can cause dirty urine or blood testing unlike our CBD products which contain no THC.
