Delta 8 is a naturally occurring compound that can be extracted from hemp and cannabis. It’s official name is delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol - not to be confused with delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol which is more commonly referred to as THC. The delta-9 THC is what causes the “high” effect from traditional marijuana. Delta-8 is another form of THC, and its chemical structure makes it slightly less potent than traditional THC. If you are looking for a calm feeling, Delta 8 is for you!
