What is Delta-8 THC? A Beginner's Guide to Delta-8 Gummies
Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol, commonly known as Delta-8 THC, is one of over 100 cannabinoids produced naturally by the cannabis plant. Unlike the well-known Delta-9 THC compound that causes an intense marijuana “high,” Delta-8 occurs in very low concentrations in hemp and cannabis.
To create Delta-8 products, CBD is typically extracted from hemp and converted into Delta-8, allowing it to be produced in sizable quantities.
Delta-8 vs. Delta-9 THC: Key Differences
While chemically similar, Delta-8 and Delta-9 produce somewhat different effects:
- Delta-8 is reported to provide a milder, "clearer" high that doesn't cause as much anxiety, paranoia, or couchlock effects as Delta-9.
- The Delta-8 high may last around 2-4 hours compared to the shorter 2 hour Delta-9 high.
- Delta-8 is about 50-75% as potent as Delta-9 THC, requiring higher doses for comparable psychoactive effects.
Benefits of Delta-8 THC Gummies
Delta-8 gummies have become a popular delivery method for this hemp-derived cannabinoid. Potential benefits of Delta-8 gummies include:
- Longer, milder high - Metabolizes slower through the body than vaping or smoking.
- Measured doses - Typically 10mg or 25mg per gummy for consistent dosing.
- Tasty flavors - Hemp taste is masked by sweet, fruity flavors.
- Discreet and portable - Resemble candy so easy to take anywhere.
- Anecdotal wellness benefits - May aid relaxation, sleep, nausea, pain, according to early reports.
