If you’ve heard of CBD, you must have heard of THC. Bloggers and the media make sure they never mention one without scourging the other.
They say that CBD is the non-psychoactive therapeutic part of cannabis, while THC is the infamous “bad boy” that makes people tall, anxious and unbalanced.
While they’re right about CBD, they’re wrong about THC. Not all THC drives people wild. There are different versions of the compound, namely Delta-9 THC and Delta-8 THC.
Delta-9 THC is responsible for all negative effects of cannabis or marijuana. Delta-8, on the other hand, is known as the gentle brother. Although psychoactive, its effects are considered friendlier and calmer. And it even offers some therapeutic benefits like CBD. You will not believe it.
In this article, we would like to examine where the functions of CBD and Delta-8 converge and where they differ.
But before that, let’s talk about the best companies currently selling Delta-8 products.
Best Delta 8 products
With a broad collection of highly potent Delta-8 products, Area52 leads the pack into this era of the cannabis boom. In their line of products you will find D8 products, including D8 gummies and D8 tinctures, all of which have antiemetic, anxiolytic, analgesic and appetite stimulating properties.
2. Finest Labs
FinestLabs is a manufacturer of highly effective D8 formulations. With a particular interest in the production of terpenes and flavonoid, Finest Labs develops its D8 products in such a way that they have the highest potency and are supported by the presence of highly potent exotic terpenes.
3CHI is known as the home of Delta 8 varieties. Are you looking for Delta-8 gums, D8 concentrates, D8 foods (e.g. D8 biscuits), D8 tinctures or Delta 8 oil? Whatever you’re looking for, as long as it’s D8, you can be sure 3CHI has you covered.
4. Delta Effex
Delta Effex is known for the strength and effectiveness of its Delta-8 formulations. You can find a wide variety of Delta-8 products in their range, including D8-infused hemp flowers, Delta-8 foods, Delta-8 tinctures, and Delta-8 gums.
Their rubbers are often considered to be the best in the business.
What is Delta-8 THC?
As mentioned earlier, Delta-8 THC is the close relative of the infamous Delta-9 THC, but it offers remarkable therapeutic benefits and doesn’t get users off-beat.
Those who have used both versions often consider Delta-8 to be “everything” Delta-9 is not. While Delta-9 leaves you intoxicated, very unbalanced, anxious, and completely out of your element, Delta-8 keeps you calm, relaxed, and slightly intoxicated.
Everyone knows the therapeutic benefits of marijuana, but the adverse effects of the delta-9-THC it contains have prevented the government from legalizing it while keeping people from using it.
The rise of Delta-8 – which is actually legal in most states – means people no longer need to miss out on the multiple benefits of hemp and marijuana.
What is CBD?
We all know what CBD already is, don’t we? It is the non-psychoactive component of cannabis that has gained widespread acceptance in recent years for its medicinal uses.
Several studies have been carried out to determine the extent of its use, but few conclusions have been drawn, although isolated evidence suggests it may be useful for anxiety, pain, sleep, mood, energy, focus, depression, cancer, blood pressure, epilepsy etc. helps up.
How does CBD relate to Delta-8 THC?
Both CBD and Delta-8 THC come from hemp plants. As such, both carry a very small (almost non-existent) amount of Delta-9-THC.
In addition, both compounds are well received by users, which is reflected in the fact that they are the only two cannabinoids that exist in different forms – gums, tinctures, oils, concentrates, hemp flower, food, topical products, etc.
The main area where CBD and Delta-8 THC combine is in the area of therapeutic influences. The two compounds share similar medical benefits, including:
- Sleep and relaxation aid
- Stress and Anxiety Management
- Pain and inflammation management
- Mood, focus and energy boost
