Delta-8 THC or Delta 8-Tetrahydrocannabinol is a new, cutting edge cannabinoid (derived from hemp) which carries psychoactive effects and euphoric feelings often associated with cannabis use, but with much less anxiety-induced effects making Delta-8 much more enjoyable for many.
The marijuana plant has various levels of mind-altering cannabinoids (e.g., psychoactive) compounds like tetrahydrocannabinol, commonly known as THC or Delta 9 THC (the most common of all) , as well as other active compounds like cannabidiol, or CBD, that are not mind-altering.
There are over 100 available cannabinoids in any given cannabis plant. Every one of them has some function and effects that scientists don’t even fully understand yet. One of the compounds that are found in cannabis is Delta 8-THC. Most of you have probably heard about THC (or Delta 9), but Delta 8 is the new THC-kid on the block!
