How is Delta 8 Different?

Delta 8 THC is a unique form of THC whose star has been rising thanks to the new opportunities provided by the Farm Bill of 2018, which federally legalized the use of non-THC cannabinoids from hemp grown in accordance with the law. The stipulation is that for any associated products to be legal, they must have a THC content of under .3%. 

While it may have THC in its name, as a cannabinoid Delta 8 THC is more like a mix between CBD, the most famous cannabinoid next to THC, and Delta 9 THC. Delta 9 is the form of THC that you’re likely to already be most familiar with; Delta 9 THC is what powers the classic “high” associated with cannabis.

So how is Delta 8 different?

The main difference is that this cannabinoid does not contain the strong psychoactive properties of Delta 9 THC that can sometimes lead to the few risks posed by Delta 9, such as paranoia, racing thoughts, and a distorted perception of reality.

The concentration is naturally much lower, so Delta 8 can be viewed within the center of a Venn diagram that is composed of CBD on one side and Delta 9 THC on the other. As that would suggest, Delta 8 can offer many of the common medical benefits of both CBD and THC, such as pain relief and sleep aid, while also offering THC’s more mind-expanding benefits within the realms of creativity, bodywork such as massage or yoga, and self-growth too. As we’re fond of saying, Delta 9 is more head with less body and Delta 8 is less head with more body.

Is Delta 8 different chemically or structurally from Delta 9?

Yes, but just barely. The difference is in the location of a key chemical bond. Both forms contain double bonds within their respective molecular chains. In Delta 8, the double bond is on the 8th carbon chain; we’ll give you one guess as to where that bond is in Delta 9 THC. The actual difference really is that minor, and yet the body’s natural endocannabinoid receptors bind and respond to the 8 vs. 9 molecules in noticeably different ways!
