What is the Difference Between CBD and Delta 8_

According to HighTimes

The hemp industry’s latest hype is Delta-8 THC, a unique chemical compound located within the cannabis plant that delivers remarkable benefits and the psychotropic effects that enthusiasts have been craving. The unfortunate part about the cannabinoid is that it hasn’t received quite the attention its close relative, Delta-9 THC (the popular psychoactive compound in marijuana known for producing the high), has received, therefore greatly limiting research involving the cannabinoid. Despite the limited research, here is what we know about Delta-8 THC and how it’s different from CBD.


What Is Delta-8 THC?

While it isn’t the most popular cannabinoid found in cannabis, it is one of the four most prominent out of more than one-hundred compounds that naturally occur. Delta-8 THC delivers psychotropic effects, yet it is less potent than its close relative, Delta-9 THC. It also occurs in very small concentrations, which increases its value due to the intricate process that involves extraction, isolation, conversion, and refinement. Though it is a complex process to obtain large concentrations of Delta-8 THC, there are methods of creating Delta-8 THC that are less difficult.

All in all, Delta-8 is a powerful cannabinoid that has a lot to offer. It is an isomer of CBD and a derivative of hemp and CBD and is completely legal if the final product contains less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC.


The Difference Between Delta-8 THC and CBD

When it comes to the comparison of Delta-8 and CBD, the differences between the two are a bit more balanced than the similarities Delta-8 and Delta-9 have. This is because CBD is chemically much different from Delta-8 THC. For instance, Delta-8 is a psychoactive cannabinoid, and CBD is not. Additionally, scientists have conducted research on CBD much more and the benefits that it offers are vast. Here is a brief list comparing the two to show the differences between them.
