Delta 8 THC is one of the 100+ cannabinoids in cannabis. Processors extract and concentrate it since it only exists naturally in small percentages within the cannabis flower. Like other cannabinoids, it interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system – specifically the CB1 receptor of the nervous system – to bring on its psychotropic effects. Despite the difference in the natural quantities of Delta 8 and Delta 9 in cannabis, when concentrated, they interact with the nervous system similarly, which raises the question…
A study was conducted in 1995 by Dr. Raphael Mechoulam in conjunction with Shaare Zedek Hospital, Bikur Holim Hospital, and Hebrew University in Jerusalem. In this study, delta-8 THC was administered to eight children ranging from 3 to 13 years of age with various hematologic cancers. These children had been treated with different drugs and [chemotherapy] for eight months prior to treatment with delta-8-THC. The delta-8-THC treatments started two hours before each session of chemo and continued every six hours for 24 hours. With this treatment, vomiting was completely prevented and side-effects were reported as negligible.
“Delta 8 gives a very clear-headed, engaged high, with zero anxiety or fogginess. I feel more “in tune” and less impaired than when I consume delta 9. My vision and other senses almost feel heightened, or more crisp. Really phenomenal for hiking and biking. In fact, for most purposes, I would rather consume delta 8 than other cannabinoids.”
