When it comes to pain relief, Delta 8 is a great option. It can help reduce pain and anxiety, while also increasing productivity and mental clarity. Delta 8 is federally legal, although state laws may differ. This makes it more accessible than Delta 9.Studies have shown that Delta 8 THC can be effective in relieving pain.
There is an increasing trend of using Delta 8 THC for pain relief compared to other cannabinoids. Researchers have found that Delta 8 THC can reduce chronic pain and inflammation when applied topically. Neuropathy, arthritis, Alzheimer's disease, and multiple sclerosis are all associated with chronic pain and inflammation. Although Delta 9 THC is not as popular or widely used as Delta 8, many people still use it on a daily basis.
Like cannabinol (CBN), Delta 8 THC is a degraded form of THC that occurs when hemp flower is exposed to oxygen during storage. Participants also reported some adverse experiences with Delta 8 THC, mostly because it is stronger on the lungs than Delta 9 THC when inhaled. Since there is no hemp flower with Delta 8 THC, manufacturers extract, convert, and refine it with other cannabinoids such as CBD. Research on experiences with Delta 8 THC is limited, and some state governments have banned it due to this lack of knowledge.
Once CBD is extracted from the plant, laboratories use the isomerization process to obtain Delta 8 THC. As a cannabinoid, Delta 8 THC binds to cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body, which helps to balance the functions of individual body systems. Most evidence on the effects of cannabinoids is anecdotal, so it's fair to say that Delta 9 THC tends to cause less anxiety than Delta 8 THC. It's a unique cannabinoid in hemp that shares many properties with CBD but has its own way of relieving pain through its affinity for receptors in the nervous system.
The exception to this federal provision are state laws that allow the sale of products rich in Delta 9 within their borders. If Delta 8 THC produces mild anxiety peaks, then Delta 9 THC is definitely less anxious than Delta 8 THC, even in people with typical anxiety symptoms. Those who like to use cannabis for snacks will love Delta 8 THC, as a single dose can increase appetite by up to three times. A recent study by researchers at the University of Chicago showed that the impact of Delta 9 on anxiety is dose-dependent. However, there is not much known about experiences with Delta 8 THC or its effects on medical or recreational users (Hollister and Gillespie 1973; Razdan 198).
The effects of Delta 8 are much milder than those of Delta 9, but it can still cause some common side effects such as anxiety, extreme fatigue, and low blood pressure.
