ˈdel-tə, 8ˈte-trə-ˌhī-drə-kə-ˈna-bə-ˌnȯl | Noun
Delta-8-THC is a minor cannabinoid, occurring in the plant in very small concentrations. Delta-8-THC is also known to be a degraded form of THC, and is not directly produced by cannabinoid-synthesizing enzymes within the plant. When THC is stored for a period of time, it degrades into delta-8-THC. Commercial growers and extractors use selective breeding and molecular isolation to access greater quantities of delta-8-THC.
“When I vape delta-8-THC, I notice that it stimulates my appetite.”
“I’ve been told that delta-8-THC gives a smooth high with no anxiety or paranoia.”
People are excited about Delta 8 because extractors are deriving it from hemp extracts and can offer the consumer a cannabinoid they can feel in non MMJ states.
