Some of our labels may mention “delta-8” as an ingredient in high-quality CBD products. What is it, exactly?
Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol, a chemical formula that can be found in many types of CBD and hemp products, is one example. You can use it to treat a variety of conditions and issues, including wellness.
Here are some of the key things to know about Delta-8 and its use in a new and exciting field, where people are learning to get more out of a CBD routine.
Delta-8 is a Natural Compound
Experts refer to Delta-8 as “terpenoid”, a natural chemical found in cannabis’ plant biology. This isn’t something that can be made up in a laboratory to be added to a product. This is a key component of plant chemistry that has been useful and fascinating to homeopaths for centuries.
Delta-8 is Neuroprotective
Scientists discovered that Delta-8 is neuroprotective. What does this all mean?
Delta-8 is a protection that prevents the loss of neurons or other neural structures in the brain.
If you look deeper, it is possible to see that certain conditions such as strokes or vascular problems can lead to a neural breakdown. So having a product that is neuroprotective helps to combat these types of attacks and certain types of decay of (or pressure on) the central nervous system.
Delta-8 has analgesic properties
This word sounds too clinical and many people don’t know what it actually means. There aren’t many words that can be used to translate it into its common meaning. Analgesic simply means that the formula relieves pain. When you know that that can be an important part of using a CBD routine for everything from cancer treatment to post-athletic recovery.
Delta-8 is psychoactive
Scientists call Delta-8 a psychoactive substance, but it is less psychoactive than THC-9.
The psychoactive THC component is the reason marijuana was once criminalized or listed as a controlled substance. This has changed since the legalization and decriminalization of many cannabis products in recent years.
