What is Delta 8?
Delta 8 is one of the four most prominent cannabinoids out of more than one-hundred compounds that naturally occur. It is a variation of its brother THC compound and it naturally occurs in most cannabis strains, but it’s only found in trace amounts. With the help of modern science, Delta 8 is refined from THC and has created an entirely new high-like experience.
The difference between Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC is the location of a specific bond between two of the atoms that source each THC molecule. Delta 8 has the double bond on the 8th carbon in the chain, while Delta-9 THC has the double bond on the 9th carbon in the chain.
Hemp-derived Delta 8 has been tremendously growing in popularity for its glorified benefits.
