Delta 8 THC and Delta 9 THC are known as isomers, molecules with the same chemical formula but different structural relationships between their atoms. The difference in question is a double bond on the 8th carbon chain for delta 8, while it is on the 9th carbon chain for delta 9.
The difference lends to slightly altered physiological responses from these molecules. Generally, delta eight anecdotally yields a less potent psychoactive effect or “high” than delta 9.
According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), Delta-8-THC binds to the CB1 receptors located in the central nervous system. Delta-8-THC additionally has an affinity for CB2 receptors, although less is known about this binding mechanism.
Delta-8-THC contains a bond on the 8th carbon chain and is studied as having a noticeable effect on how the body’s endocannabinoid receptors bind and respond to the molecule.
In addition, delta-8-THC is stable, does not oxidize to become cannabinol, and boasts a prolonged shelf life. Such stability is very desirable in a medicinal compound.
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.
As a minor cannabinoid, there’s still a great deal that is unknown about delta-8-THC, which necessitates a cautious approach toward using it. However, the cannabinoid is generally available in concentrate forms because most cannabis flower contains less than 1% delta-8-THC.
While some delta-8-THC concentrates are isolates, other products may combine delta-8-THC with CBD and delta-9-THC to create more of an entourage effect.
While the knowledge we have about the entourage effect is based on delta-9-THC, the molecular similarity of delta-8-THC could mean that it produces enhanced effects when ingested, either as a medicinal or recreational product.
