Delta-8 THC is a minor cannabinoid occurring naturally in the hemp plant. It is an analog of delta-9-THC, with the leading chemical difference being a double bond on the 8th carbon rather than the 9th carbon of the molecule. Therefore, extractors can use molecular isolation to access large quantities of this cannabinoid from the plant. 

Important things to note about delta-8 THC: It tends to exhibit a lower psychotropic potency than traditional delta-9 while similarly keeping the properties of appetite stimulation, nausea reduction, and pain alleviation users enjoy.
