What is Delta 8 THC?

In previous blogs we've covered what Delta 8 is, but here is a refresher: 

Delta 8 tetrahydrocannabinol, is one of the many cannabinoids that occur in cannabis plants. We like to think of it as the younger brother of the famous THC - the major psychoactive component of cannabis.

Since Delta 8 THC is related to THC and Delta 9 THC, you're probably wondering "Does it get me high?"

Short answer - yes. 

Unlike CBD, consuming Delta 8 can get you high. It's reported to be way less psychoactive than Delta 9 THC but there are still noticeable "high" effects. 

Users have reported a milder high. Delta 8 users have reported a clearer, less anxious and less sedative high. 

How Do I Use Delta 8?

Delta 8 THC is normally produced into concentrate form. Because it occurs in such a low amount in cannabis, it can be extracted and distilled into a thick, translucent liquid that looks like other CBD distillate. Delta 8 is available in cartridges or syringes, and can be vaporized using a pen device. There are also a few Delta 8 infused tinctures that may be available as well.
