Understanding all about delta-8 THC
Delta-9 THC, which is the psychoactively potent type of THC that people who use marijuana seek, has its psychoactivity primarily because of its interaction with the CB1 receptor system in the brain. Delta-8 THC by contrast does not directly interact with either the CB1 or CB2 receptors and instead affects other non cannabinoid receptors such as those for serotonin and dopamine.
The delta-8 THC isomer was first detected in 1975 when it was isolated from Thai cannabis . It’s potency: 1/4500th that of THC. By comparison: THCA (non-psychoactive precursor to THC) is 200x less than THC.
Delta 8 THC is believed to be an anti inflammatory agent but it also increases appetite,and it is currently being researched for its possible use in the treatment of several forms of cancer.
Delta-8 THC is yet another of the many cannabinoids that is known to exist in the cannabis (hemp) plant. It produces very similar psychoactive effects as delta-9 THC but its use was not as widespread because it takes less material to achieve the same effect and because delta 8 wholesale strongly influences how quickly it will hit you and for how long.
An enzyme found in human cells known as Fatty Acid Amide Hydrolase (FAAH) metabolizes delta-9 THC, rendering it inactive, but this doesn’t happen with delta-8 THC – at least not nearly as fast – making its effects considerably more powerful than those of delta-9. Some research suggests that delta-8 can generate four times as much cerebral euphoria as delta-9.
when smoked, delta-8 THC can be detected in the system much sooner than delta-9, but its effects also subside faster. It is also worth noting that, when eaten (in food or beverage form), it metabolizes into cannabinol (CBN) at a rate of 14% per hour and 7% per hour when vaporized. This process will radically reduce how much CBN the patient receives by using orally administered marijuana, so if an individual uses this method, they should keep this to themselves until the very end of their experience.

Delta-8 THC may also be useful as a component in oral patient-controlled analgesic (OTCPA) machines that allow people to manage their pain by self dosing themselves when and as they need it without having to use opioids, which are addictive and can kill you. It’s not addictive at all.
