Safety studies on Delta 8 are currently limited. The 1995 study showed that Delta 8 prevented digestive problems in children who were undergoing chemotherapy. Study results showed that Delta 8 THC prevented upset stomachs associated with chemotherapy. Scientists also found that Delta 8 THC was less sedating than Delta 9 and more energetic. They also noted that Delta 8 THC has the potential to improve appetite.
Another study compared Delta 8 THC to Delta 9 THC, and the effects on adult men by intravenous and oral administrations. Oral administration of THC produced similar effects to eating an edible.
Delta 8 is federally legal and therefore safe. Research has shown that Delta 8 is safe enough to not overdose. Although it has the same effects as Delta 9, Delta 8 gives you a more subtle euphoria, which comes gradually and steadily.
Delta 8 Benefits
Delta 8 can produce mild feelings of euphoria, relaxation, and mild sedation. It may reduce swelling and discomfort. Delta 9 may cause paranoia in sensitive individuals. Delta 8 is gentler and has fewer side effects. D8 can prevent stomach upsets and queasiness. All this is due to the endocannabinoid and D8’s relationship with it.
The Endocannabinoid System, (ECS), and Delta 8
The endocannabinoid (or ECS), is a virtual network that contains receptors that help maintain balance in the mind and body.
The cannabinoids in Delta 8 products support the ECS receptors that regulate these vital body processes. These effects include:
- Mood booster
- Relieves discomfort
- Focus on the future
- Relaxation promotes
- Swelling and soreness in the legs
- Supports deeper, longer sleep
- You can regulate your appetite
- Sensitivity sharpens
- Feels less nervousness and irritability
Delta 8 THC is a great way to unwind after a long day. It doesn’t cause any significant head changes. Delta 8 is Delta 9’s gentle cousin. It is quiet and subtle, but still offers the power to help you relax.
