What is Delta-8?
Delta-8 is a cannabis compound that has gained popularity because of its similarity to THC. This new and improved form of THC produces better and more potent highs, without the many psychoactive side effects of traditional THC. Delta-8 exists naturally in the cannabis plant (hemp) and works much like THC, now it's a less potent form of THC so you're not going to be high as a kite, but you will get a nice buzz with psychotropic effects
Delta-8 is a THC derivative derived from CBD. Delta-8 has many of the same effects as THC including pain relief, euphoria & happiness. Delta-8 can also help with insomnia. Where Delta-8 differs from pure THC is in its potency. If THC makes you feel anxious and paranoid then Delta-8 may offer you a more mellow high.
Delta-8 is legal in most states. The only state where Delta-8 is illegal is Utah. This is because of the THC it contains and its cannabinoid effects on the body. Some states such as Delaware and Alaska have decided not to legalize Delta-8, but it can still be purchased because of its legality in other states.
The dangers of overdosing on Delta-8 come from ordering it from the wrong source, or consuming it in large amounts. If you buy Delta-8 from a reputable vendor and use common sense when dosing, it can be a very fun drug with very few negative side effects.
