Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as delta-8 THC, is a psychoactive substance found in the Cannabis sativa plant, of which marijuana and hemp are two varieties. Delta-8 THC is one of over 100 cannabinoids produced naturally by the cannabis plant, typically only in small amounts. However, CBD can be converted into Delta-8-THC through a simple chemical reaction.

The chemical structure of Delta-8-THC is similar to that of its well-known cousin, Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-9-THC), the main psychoactive compound found in marijuana. That’s what gets you “high.” Both Delta-8 and Delta-9 are forms of THC. But when people refer to THC, they usually mean the Delta-9 that’s found in high concentrations in marijuana. Both produce a euphoric, fuzzy feeling, but Delta-8 causes a milder high.

FAQ

How Does It Compare to Regular Marijuana (Delta-9-THC)?

The chemical structure of Delta-8-THC is similar to that of its well-known cousin, Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-9-THC), the main psychoactive compound found in marijuana. That’s what gets you “high.”

Both Delta-8 and Delta-9 are forms of THC. But when people refer to THC, they usually mean the Delta-9 that’s found in high concentrations in marijuana. Both produce a euphoric, fuzzy feeling, but Delta-8 causes a milder high.

In fact, Delta-8 is often referred to as “marijuana-lite” or “diet weed.” Other common THC side effects like paranoiaanxiety, and drowsiness are also less potent.

What are the benefits, effects, and side effects of Delta-8?

The most commonly reported benefits from our customers for Delta-8-THC have been elevated mood, relaxation, anxiety/stress relief, improved sleep, general pain/inflammation relief, and headache relief. Given the similarities between delta-8 and THC, you may also experience some of the same side effects. But because delta-8 is a minor cannabinoid with far fewer human studies, there are fewer published findings on its side effects and warnings.

However, side effects that may overlap with THC can include:

  • Dry mouth
  • Red eyes
  • Paranoia
  • Feeling hungry
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Anxiety
  • Faster heart rate

Note: Combining Delta-8-THC with CBD may reduce some of these psychoactive effects.

Are Abra-Cannabra products made by Sunny Skies CBD?

Yes, Abra-Cannabra is our Delta-8-THC brand. Sunny Skies CBD manufactures the Abra-Cannabra D8 Tinctures and 25mg Mixed Berry Gummies at our lab in Durand, Wisconsin.

Are there any states where Delta-8-THC is illegal?

Yes, Delta-8-THC is illegal in the following states: Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Mississippi, Montana, New York, North Dakota, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont. Sunny Skies CBD will not ship Delta-8-THC products to those states. Do not order Delta-8-THC products if your shipping address is in any of these states.

Does Delta-8 show up on drug tests?

It depends, but probably. Drug tests look for regular THC (delta-9). And because of its similarities to THC, delta-8 lasts in the body for a similar length of time and could be picked up by a drug test.

It is worth noting that the way delta-8 and THC are broken down in your body can be highly unique to you. There are a number of factors that influence this, including how the substances are being consumed (e.g., smoking, edibles) and what other cannabinoids are present in the product. How long delta-8 stays in your system can also be affected by these variables, as well as how often you consume these products and their potency.

The bottom line is that if you’re concerned about failing a drug test, it’s best to avoid delta-8 products.

Additionally, Abra-Cannabra D8 products made by Sunny Skies CBD are full-spectrum products, which means they have a trace but legal amount of delta-9 THC (less than 0.3%), which could also cause you to fail a drug test.

Does Delta-8 have health benefits?

Due to some of its similarities with delta-9 THC, it’s possible that delta-8 could be used for a number of similar conditions. For example, studies have shown promising results for use in stimulating appetite, lessening nausea and vomitingcalming anxiety, and easing pain.

Apart from limited human studies and anecdotal case reports, most of the research has been done on animals. And the contrast between animal and human data shows the need for more research concerning the safety of delta-8 since it may affect species differently. Because of this, we don’t have concrete evidence that delta-8 is safe to use in humans or know if it is effective in treating certain conditions.
