Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol, or Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinols, are the main component of marijuana. It is often used as a cheaper alternative to marijuana. Delta-8 Tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as Delta-8 THC, is a highly lipophilic, nonsteroidal, liposome-like compound found in the cannabis plant. It is actually an isomers of Delta-8 THC, the primary active compound found in marijuana.
Delta-8-THC is also known by other common names such as H-regnone, Cannabidiol, Cannabidiolic acid, and Hashish. It has been shown that cannabidiol has similar effects on the human brain as did delta-9 THC; it can produce a calming effect, reduced blood pressure, and has a sedative effect similar to alcohol. However, compared to delta 8 gummies, cannabidiol does not produce euphoric or alert state experiences common to most marijuana products.
Some studies have revealed that even this substance may produce a negative experience similar to anxiety, when taken in high dosages. Nonetheless, many medical experts maintain that there is no medical use for cannabis products containing delta-8 THC. In fact, even if a person has a positive medical history of schizophrenia, seizures, depression, or glaucoma, it is unlikely that he would be able to benefit from taking a marijuana product containing delta-8 THC.
However, many advocates of cannabis use maintain that the benefits of delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol outweigh the negative side effects. In addition to cannabidiol, some advocates of cannabis use suggest that there are some beneficial compounds found in marijuana that delta-9 thc can help reverse. Specifically, these compounds are known as thc, delta-7 THC, and cannabidiol. All three of these substances have different physiological functions in the body. Below, we discuss the health benefits and the medicinal uses of delta-7 and cannabidiol.
Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol, or THCA, is one of the two primary active ingredients found in marijuana. THCA is believed to be responsible for the “high” effect marijuana has on some people. The primary side effect of taking the substance is the same as taking marijuana: it can create an altered state of mind and body. An enhanced mental state can lead to increased physical awareness, which can lead to an increase in the likelihood of accidents or the inability to react quickly to a dangerous situation.
In addition to helping people maintain a relaxed mental state, some advocates of medical marijuana also believe that delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol may be useful as a medical marijuana substitute for some patients with chronic, debilitating diseases, such as AIDS or chemotherapy patients. These advocates claim that medical marijuana can help lessen the side effects of these medicines and help them avoid having to take potent and highly expensive drugs.
This would obviously be a boon to patients who suffer from cancer, leukemia, and other diseases. However, there is no clinical evidence linking medical marijuana with the alleviation of symptoms of these diseases. More likely, medical marijuana would simply act as a sugar-free, natural alternative to the powerful prescription pain-killers used to treat these diseases. Some medical marijuana users do report an increase in appetite, though this usually fades within a week or so.
Medical marijuana is not the only type of cannabis, however. It may be surprising to find out that the “other” primary psychoactive substance, THC, is a very similar substance to delta-8 thc. When THC and delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol are smoked, they produce a very similar experience in the user. Therefore, even when medical marijuana is more effective and safer than hashish, it is unlikely to be as addicting as the illegal cannabis, either. The medical marijuana may be legal, but hashish is usually anything but.
