Delta 8 THC vs Delta 9 THC
While it may seem like Delta 9 THC and Delta 8 THC are practically the same, Delta 8 THC is found in the cannabis plant in much lower quantities, is less potent, and it also tends to bind with CB2 receptors (unlike its more potent counterpart that we mentioned earlier). CB2 receptors are most present throughout the organs & extremities, like in the digestive tract and the immune system.
Benefits of Delta 8 THC
• May potentially help reduce stress or feelings of sadness, especially in individuals who find the effects of delta 9 THC a bit too strong for them
• Helps reduce feelings of nausea (antiemetic effect)
• Helps reduce inflammation in some body parts, especially when applied topically
