Delta 8 THC

When people talk about the effects of cannabis, they sometimes discuss the plant as if it were only made up of one chemical. When in reality, each marijuana plant has hundreds of different compounds, which include cannabinoids and terpenes. These all work together to create the effects we experience. While it’s a team effort, when it comes to both marijuana research and marketing, it seems like the only cannabinoids you hear about are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). While these two cannabinoid superstars are both highly potent and effective medicines, there are many more compounds to explore in the cannabis universe.

Right now, we’re going to turn our attention to a cannabinoid that’s starting to grow in popularity: delta-8 THC. What is this cannabinoid that we’ve heard so little about? And how can we use it to improve our own medicinal experience? According to the National Cancer Institute, “delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol is an analogue of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) with antiemetic, anxiolytic, appetite-stimulating, analgesic, and neuroprotective properties. Delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol (delta-8-THC) binds to the cannabinoid G-protein coupled receptor CB1, located in the central nervous system; CB1 receptor activation inhibits adenylyl cyclase, increases mitogen-activated protein kinase activities, modulates several potassium channel conductances and inhibits N- and P/Q-type Ca2+ channels. This agent exhibits a lower psychotropic potency than delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (delta-9-THC), the primary form of THC found in cannabis.”

Chemically, delta-8 is very similar to delta-9 THC, with the only difference being the location of a double bond. Delta-8 is active at both the CB1 and CB2 receptors and has a psychotropic potency about one-third to one-half that of delta-9 THC. Delta-8 can be found naturally occurring in cannabis plants, but generally at low concentrations of less than 1% in dried flowers. To produce larger quantities, delta-8 can be derived from either delta-9 THC or CBD in a lab. And if CBD from hemp is used, the delta-8 THC produced is federally legal under the 2018 Farm Bill. Delta-8 THC has a frightening name due to how we’ve been taught to think over the past decades regarding delta-9 THC, but delta-8 THC is federally legal and legal in most states in the USA thanks to H.R. 2: The Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, also known as the 2018 Farm Bill. 

Although the number of states that have legalized cannabis for use by adults is slowly increasing, it’s no secret that most of the country and states have still not come around to the cause of this incredible plant. This sad situation leaves most Americans without a way to enjoy a nice buzz for the pure enjoyment of it unless they’re willing to risk legal backlash, which can still be pretty serious in some jurisdictions. That will all be changing now with the arrival of products made with the cannabinoid delta-8 THC becoming available to the consumers across the US. Like its sibling delta-9 THC, which is largely responsible for the classic marijuana high associated with the plant, delta-8 THC has psychoactive effects, although they’re not as strong. Yes. Unlike CBD, consuming delta-8 THC can get you high. It’s claimed to be much less psychoactive as the better known delta-9 THC, but with noticeable effects. Users report a milder version of delta-9 THC, notorious for its heavy psychoactive effects. They both bind to the same CB-1 cannabinoid receptors in the nervous system, but delta-8 THC tends to react differently due to its slightly altered molecular structure. Users have reported a clearer high, less anxiety with less of a sedative effect. So, delta-8 THC is psychoactive, but much less than delta-9 THC.

On the medicinal side, delta-8 acts as an Antiemetic, Anxiolytic, NeuroProtectant, and Orexigenic. In English, it is great at stimulating appetite, reducing anxiety, protecting nerve cells, and can help reduce nausea. For the recreational user, delta-8 is reported to have about one-third of the psychoactive potential as traditional delta-9. For many cannabis users, consuming cannabis helps them manage anxiety. Even a single puff can have a world of change and set a completely better tone for the day. However, for some, it is easy to get the stereotypical “couch potato” feeling and slow down. With a third of the psychoactive ness, one dose of delta-8 can reduce any nerves or unsettled stomach, and still leave the consumer with a clear head and ready to take on the day. Delta-8 THC metabolites may trigger many drug tests looking for delta-9 THC metabolites. As a precaution, you should not take this product if you need to pass a drug test.

Delta-8 grows in negligible amounts in cannabis. In fact, most dried cannabis contains less than 1% of the substance. So, in order to consume this elusive cannabinoid, processors must carefully extract it from the plant through a variety of scientific methods. Extracting delta-8 from cannabis to create a product potent enough to produce noticeable effects isn’t easy. But it’s certainly possible. Delta-8 THC is generally produced into concentrate form. Since it occurs in such low amounts in cannabis, it can be extracted and distilled into a thick translucent liquid that looks like any CBD distillate. It’s available in cartridges or syringes, and can be vaporized using a standard weed pen or dab rig. Delta-8 concentrate can also be mixed with flowers to kick up the delta-8 potency level. Since distillate is technically edible, it can be consumed orally, but there has not been much research conducted on the effects of delta-8 when metabolized in the body. There are also a few delta-8-THC infused oral tinctures (for sublingual use) available as well.

The efficiency and stability of delta-8-THC make it an extremely valuable cannabis-derived chemical compound. The distillate’s benefits and effects serve both medical and recreational consumers alike, and it illustrates the power of individual chemical elements within cannabis. As science defines and refines the applications for cannabis’s comprehensive collection of cannabinoids, we will benefit.

 

Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, Delta 8 THC is federally legal in the USA. Some states have additional restrictions and can be viewed here.

To better understand the legal classification of Delta 8 THC in comparison to the more widely known Delta 9 THC, let’s explore the composition of Hemp vs Marijuana. Cannabis is often broadly classified as Hemp and Marijuana. The term “Hemp” classifies the varieties of Cannabis that contain 0.3% or less of Delta 9 THC content by dry weight. “Marijuana” is a term that is often used to classify Cannabis that contains more than 0.3% Delta 9 THC. High amounts of CBD, the non- intoxicating cannabis compound, can be found in Hemp and marijuana alike, however THC is produced at varying degrees. 

Delta (9)-tetrahydrocannabinol is the chemical name for the common term THC and is the primary psychoactive ingredient in medical and recreational marijuana. 

Delta (8)-tetrahydrocannabinol although has the same chemical formula as Delta 9 THC, is an isomer of Delta 9 THC. This means that Delta 8 THC has a distinct molecular structure than Delta 9 THC. 

The previously mentioned 2018 Farm Bill amended the US ban of all Cannabis making cannabinoids in hemp exempt of the Controlled Substance Act of 1970. Therefore all derivatives, isomers, and cannabinoids in hemp (Delta 8 THC being a derivative of hemp)  is legal provided that the final product contains less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC.
