Does Delta 8 get you high?
There are many different reasons why people choose to add hemp-derived products to their wellness routine. Like THC, Delta-8 is a naturally occurring cannabinoid in the Cannabis Sativa plants. Delta-8 THC is a psychoactive substance found in both marijuana and hemp, being varieties of the Cannabis Sativa plant. However, industrial hemp plants are low in THC and high in CBD, while marijuana are high in THC and lower in CBD.
Delta 8 is also a naturally occurring cannabinoid in the Cannabis Sativa plant along with hundreds of other cannabinoids. However, unlike THC and CBD in marijuana and hemp, it is a minor cannabinoid, which means it is present in extremely small amounts. To produce the amount needed for commercial production of Delta 8 products, CBD or THC is converted to Delta 8 THC through a chemical process.
Do Delta 8 Gummies Get You High?
Delta 8 is almost chemically identical to Delta 9 THC, the compound responsible for the high produced by marijuana. However, there is a chemical difference that replaces a single bond with a double bond, which reduces the potency and effectiveness of Delta 8 on the endocannabinoid system in the body.
This means that Delta 8 has a similar action on the body’s endocannabinoid system receptors, but it is not as pronounced as Delta 9 THC. It is more of a mild euphoric feeling rather than the high associated with cannabis. However, it is important to realize that everyone’s body will respond differently, and some people may feel more of a high than others. With that said, consumers of Delta-8 have reported little to no negative side effects which can be common with the use of Delta-9 THC, such as paranoia or anxiety.
DOES DELTA 8 GET YOU HIGH?
This is the primary question we get asked about D8 THC “Will this get me high?” and the answer may be what you want to hear.
Yes, Delta-8 THC is psychoactive, meaning it will get you high somewhat like Delta-THC. Thats because it interacts with the CB1 receptor in your brain.
Its much more mild in general from traditional THC products. It’s often described as “relaxing” and “euphoric”, and many people say that D8 induces more of a “body high” than a “head high”. This is most likely caused by it’s interaction with the immune system portion of th ECS that goes throughout your nervous system, which Delta 9 THC does not.
