Delta 8 THC is a newer analog of the delta 9 compound.
The molecules of Delta 8 are built similarly to Delta 9, but the arrangement of their atomic bonds is different, which causes them to have different properties.
In recent months, delta 8 THC has made headlines in the industry as a sort of “legal high.” It has also been dubbed “diet weed” or “cannabis light” due to it's percieved less potent cognitive effects.
The strength of delta 8 THC is about half as high as the one of delta 9. The compound is also less likely to cause anxiety and paranoia — the two side effects of taking too high doses of regular thc.
Delta 8 THC comes in many forms, just like CBD and delta 9 THC. You can find it in tinctures, vapes, gummies, capsules, concentrates, distillates, and even pre-rolls..
