Delta 8 products are pure, all-natural, hemp-derived cannabinoids infused with a relaxing, legal high that permeates throughout your body and mind. These products can be used for various benefits, including euphoria, stress relief, and wellness.
Delta 8 Products – All Buzz & No Fuzz
Delta 8 products are a fantastic way to experience the benefits of cannabinoids in a new and exciting way. Unlike its more well-known cousin, marijuana-derived delta 9, delta 8 is federally legal and offers a much milder and more manageable high.
Since the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, this compound’s popularity boomed among sellers and consumers alike—and for good reason. Delta 8 has much to offer, as much in psychoactive effects as in other benefits, and if you’re looking for your very own delta 8 fix, you’ve come to the right place!
Dissecting Delta 8
Delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol, or delta 8 for short, is a psychotropic cannabinoid found in cannabis and hemp plants. It is a close relative of delta 9, the cannabinoid commonly associated with the psychotropic effects of the cannabis plant, and offers many of the same benefits, including:
That said, delta 8 does have something delta 9 does not… or maybe it’s the other way around. Delta 8 is estimated to be about half as potent as delta 9, meaning it will provide virtually all the same benefits as its older siblings but with lessened strength. This may sound like a downside, but it’s this exact characteristic that makes delta 8 less prone to giving users anxiety and paranoia than delta 9—it’s also why researchers are calling it delta 9’s “nicer younger sibling.”
But that doesn’t make delta 8 completely free from side effects. Although they occur much less frequently than the side effects of other compounds, delta 8 could still result in adverse effects such as:
Changes in heart rate
But remember, these side effects aren’t likely to occur, even when you do consume delta 8, as long as you overindulge. This means that if you love the buzzy relaxation and chill that delta 9 provides, but hate to run into unwanted side effects, delta 8 may be the compound you’ve been looking for!
How Delta 8 Products Are Made
Although delta 8 does occur naturally in cannabis plants, it isn't as common as delta 9 or CBD. In fact, delta 8 only exists in trace concentrations naturally, and if you know anything about delta 8’s popularity, you know that won’t do.
Most of the cannabinoids we know and love today come from CBGA, or cannabigerolic acid. Nicknamed “the mother cannabinoid,” CBGA organically evolves into compounds like CBD or THC depending on environmental and genetic factors. So, how does CBGA come into play in making delta 8 instead of letting it happen naturally?
In a lab environment, chemists and other scientists are able to extract CBGA and manipulate its environment to force it to convert into delta 8 through a series of chemical reactions. Once the science geeks are able to isolate the delta 8 distillate, it’s used to make a plethora of different delta 8 products. Say, “thank you, nerds!”

Are Delta 8 Products Safe?
As the popularity of delta 8 and other cannabinoids continue to grow, there is a growing concern about the safety of these products. One of the main issues is that the FDA does not regulate hemp products since the plant became federally legal. This means that safety regulations and expectations are often set by individual manufacturers, leaving consumers to do their research and find trusted sources.

Comparing Delta 8 Products to Other Cannabinoids
After learning about delta 8 and its effects, you might be curious about how it stacks up against other cannabinoids. Let's take a closer look so that you can make an informed decision about which one is best for you.
Delta 8 vs. Delta 9
Delta 8 and delta 9 share many of the same effects, but they differ in potency. Delta 9 is around twice as potent as delta 8, and it's been found that delta 8 is less likely to cause negative side effects like anxiety or paranoia when smoked. Delta 8 provides a more manageable experience, gradually working towards a mellow state, while the effects of delta 9 products are faster to kick in.
Delta 8 vs. Delta 10
Delta 8 and delta 10 are similar in that they're great for new users and produce mild euphoric effects while having reduced chances of negative effects like paranoia and anxiety. Delta 10 is even milder than delta 8, but it produces more Sativa-like effects. Delta 10 products can increase creative energy, improve mood and focus, and provide a mild buzz.
Delta 8 vs. HHC
HHC products share many similarities with delta 9 and delta 10, but they have a unique potency that falls between the two compounds. HHC is more potent than delta 8 and delta 10, with a potency of about 70-80% of delta 9's. Although more potent than delta 8, the chance of negative side effects like anxiety or paranoia associated with HHC remains low. HHC has the potential to ease discomfort, promote relaxation, suppress appetite, and generate a moderate psychoactive effect. Moreover, HHC features a prolonged shelf life of over five years when preserved properly.
Delta 8 is a great choice for anyone looking to experience the benefits of cannabinoids without going overboard. It offers a moderately mild high with calming effects and appetite stimulation, so whether you’re vaping, eating, or smoking your delta 8, get ready to chill on the couch for hours with a family-sized bag of potato chips!
