What is delta-8 THC?
Delta-8 THC is a cannabinoid that occurs naturally in cannabis plants. It is similar to delta-9 THC, the main psychoactive compound in marijuana, but has a slightly different chemical structure. Delta-8 THC is believed to have similar effects to delta-9 THC, but is less potent. Some people report feeling more clearheaded and alert after taking delta-8 THC, rather than feeling high or intoxicated.
Can delta-8 get you high?
As a psychoactive substance, delta-8 THC can get you high. However, this high will be much less intense than the high associated with delta-9 THC, the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis. This is because delta-8 THC is not as readily converted to the more potent delta-9 THC.
Delta-8 vs Delta-9 THC
Delta-8 THC is less potent than Delta-9 THC. This means that it takes a larger dose of Delta-8 THC to achieve the same level of psychoactivity as Delta-9 THC. Some people believe that Delta-8 THC is more “cerebral” and “uplifting” than Delta-9 THC, but this has not been confirmed by scientific research.
