What is Delta 8 THC?

Delta-8-THC is one of the most potent cannabinoid chemicals found in cannabis. It alters mood, memory, and perception. Delta 8 is unique because it's not psychoactive on its own when ingested orally but still can bind to specific receptors in the body. 

Benefits of Delta 8 THC

1) Improve Brain Health

Studies have shown that delta 8 THC can promote neurogenesis (the birth of new neurons), and protect brain cells against highly toxic chemicals, infections, and stress responses. Due to this fact, current research is focusing on delta-8-THC for various brain disorders including, epilepsy, autism, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer's disease.

2) Relieve Pain

Delta-8 THC is one of the more effective non-psychoactive cannabinoids that bind to the CB2 receptors in our body. It's similar to CBD in that it does not actually enter the bloodstream but instead attaches itself to cannabinoid receptors (CB2 receptors) throughout the body. The location of CB2 receptors correlates with pain areas of our body. When Delta-8 THC binds to them, it blocks the transmission of pain signals to our brain. 

3) Improve Appetite

Delta-8 THC also works by stimulating the receptors in our body that regulate our appetite. This is why it can be useful as an appetite stimulant for patients with AIDS or other illnesses involving loss of appetite.

4) May Treat Seizures and Epilepsy

Some studies with animals have shown that delta-8-THC is effective in treating seizures, especially in treating those induced by the use of alcohol (alcohol withdrawal seizures). Studies with animals have also shown that delta-8-THC is effective in reducing or preventing the occurrence of epileptic seizures.

5) Better Sleep

Delta-8 THC may improve sleep, as well as reduce the time it takes for a person to fall asleep. It does this by affecting the endocannabinoids, which are chemicals that naturally occur in our body and affect sleep, pain, and mood.

Delta-8 THC has a calming effect on our body by relaxing the muscles and suppressing the excitability of our nervous system. This makes it ideal for inducing a general sense of relaxation, reducing stress and tension, as well as depression and anxiety

6) Cancer Treatment

Cannabinoids may help prevent tumor growth and decrease tumor size in animals. Cannabinoids can activate apoptosis (the process of programmed death) in cancer cells while protecting healthy cells. Delta-8 THC is a natural cannabinoid, so it's easy to determine the effects on tumor growth, as well as its effect on normal cells in the body.

7) Nausea Treatment

Research shows that delta 8 THC may lessen vomiting and nausea. It does this by stimulating the same receptors in our brain that react to serotonin. Serotonin is responsible for controlling our mood, appetite, and sleep. These same receptors become active when we eat foods that contain capsaicin (chili peppers) or ginger.
