1. D8-THC is different from D9-THC and other natural cannabinoids because it is not found naturally in marijuana or hemp but is produced by isomerizing cannabidiol from hemp using various acids.
  2. D8-THC is not a controlled substance in contrast to D9-THC but it does bind to the same receptors as D9-THC and produces similar effects although with less intensity than D9-THC.
  3. D8-THC is more thermodynamically stable than D9-THC and therefore is sometimes found in low amounts in D9-THC due to isomerization of D9-THC to its more stable isomer.
