Delta-8 is a compound found in cannabis that has become very popular among young adults because of its similarity with THC. THC is the main compound in cannabis that is responsible for the “high feeling” , euphoria, happiness, sedation, and symptom relief.The similarity between THC and delta-8 is based on their chemical structure and names. Scientifically, basic THC is known as delta-9 THC or just delta-9, while delta-8 is a short form of delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol (delta-8 THC). The effects of delta-9 one one’s body are similar to those of delta-8 only that delta’s effects are less potent.
Delta-8 is different from the widely known THC and CBD.
Delta-8 THC and delta-9 THC are chemically different compounds. They react in a slightly different manner with the system, which makes delta-8 less potent than delta-9. Usually, delta-8 is derived from hemp and delta-9 is derived from marijuana. Hemp contains higher concentrations of delta-8 while Marijuana contains higher concentrations of delta-9.Despite a majority of delta-8 and CBD distillates being extracted from hemp, CBD and delta-8 are very distinct compounds. Delta-8 is more similar to delta-9 than CBD in terms of the chemical structure.
Delta-8 can get you high.
Consuming delta-8 can get you high, but not as high as consuming delta-9. Delta-8 is known to produce a smoother and milder high, which appeals for some cannabis consumers.
Delta-8 offers similar benefits to THC that interest young adults.
Consumers of delta-8 have reported that the cannabinoid produces similar effects like common THC, including happiness and mild euphoria. Also, Consuming delta-8 can relieve symptoms of certain medical conditions, including pain, anxiety, lack of appetite, nausea.

These side effects include: red eyes, dry mouth, paranoia and getting a strong desire for food.
Is delta-8 legal?
This question lingers in the minds of many young adults who have heard about the compound. The answer to this question is quite controversial. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the federal Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) still indirectly classify delta-8 as a schedule 1 controlled substance. This classification would make delta federally illegal in the US.However, the 2018 Farm Bill, a federal act that the congress passed, removed hemp and its products from the list of controlled substances.Under this new law, all cannabis extracts must have delta-9 THC concentration not exceeding 0.3%, but there are no limits for THC whatsoever. This law makes the delta-8, sourced from hemp, federally legal.Nonetheless, delta-8 and CBD sourced from hemp are still illegal in some states in the US. Furthermore, cannabis laws are revised regularly in many states of the US. Consequently, you should know your local state’s laws concerning delta before trying any products with the compound.
