No more common question received at KanehTree these days than those of you early adopters who continue reaching out to learn about Delta-8.
For a brand who throughly enjoys the educational aspect of all things CBD and sharing knowledge—no bigger a topic we’d rather deep dive for those wanting be in-the-know.
In simplest terms, Delta-8 THC is a legal, hemp-derived cannabinoid that provides psychoactivity without the paranoia often related to the THC you’ve known in the past.
WHAT’S THE 4-1-1 ON THE DELTA-8?
Delta-8 THC is similar to Delta-9—both of which are chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant. The most-significant difference; how they interact with the body.
Delta-8 is far less potent—yet delivering a powerful body experience, by targeting both the brain (CB1 receptors) and body (CB2 receptors), for an intoxicating THC-driven experience.
Delta-8 binds to the endocannabinoid system differently than Delta-9, due to the location of it’s double bond—making Delta-8 much less potent than regular THC.
Quality and ingredients are again the name of the game for KanehTree, as our new Delta-8 THC “Feel Good” blend—a non-synthetic tincture, derived using photosynthesis to convert CBD to Delta-8—is now in stock.
This is not the case with some other corner-cutting brands who haven’t been in the CBD marketplace as long as we have—so let the buyer beware; ingredients matter—especially to KanehTree.
Regarding the effects of Delta-8—many report similar effects as standard THC; mild euphoria, uplifted feelings, happiness and general relief.
As always, KanehTree suggests everyone does their homework—while starting slow and low with any new CBD-derived addition to their daily routine.
Side effects (from too much Delta-8) can include the standard dry mouth, red eyes and anxiousness—but only when too much is consumed. Following directions regarding serving size is your best bet to avoid any of this.
FEATURES & BENEFITS OF DELTA-8
Regarding some of the benefits of Delta-8, as well as optimum times to consume:
— Aside from using Delta-8 daily to unwind and relax, it also helps with physical pain, along with that day-to-day stress. Delta-8 has been shown to reduce inflammation—great for nagging injuries, post-workout soreness or just general aches and pains that seem to plague us all.
— As the years pile up, seems more adults are dealing with sleep challenges that didn’t seem to bother them in years passed. The calming and relaxing effects of Delta-8 THC have proven helpful for many who struggle to get a good night’s sleep.
While most know the following, it’s still worth mention. Long-term sleep deprivation is shown to take a toll on the human body. Immunity system takes a hit, memory and concentration are more commonplace and blood pressure can be effected.
Cannabinoid studies have shown a positive impact on sleep and Delta-8 falls under that umbrella as an option worth looking into for those who struggled to get their Zzzzzs.
— Improved appetite, while waving goodbye to nausea—Delta-8 is a great way to boost your appetite, but without all the side effects that can come from Delta-9 or other heavier psychoactive substances.
Anecdotal evidence shows this energizing compound can leave you relaxed and clear—helping relieve the standard hangover, without the anxiety-fueled side effects from regular THC or Delta-9.
— Where too much cannabis use has been said to impact short term memory, when used properly, studies have shown that Delta-8 THC can work as a memory booster—not just a positive impact on concentration, but a neuroprotector that can help with neurological conditions. This neurotransmitter serves as an important tole in both learning and memory.
— The biggest questions surrounding Delta-8 might be its legality—which is easy to clear up, as the product is federally legal and available for purchase and shipping across (most of) the nation under the 2018 Farm Bill, which runs through 2023.
As always, KanehTree suggests you do your homework—both in regards to our product selection as well as all current rules and regulations surrounding the CBD industry.
