You may have heard of Delta 8, but have you heard of Delta 9 or Delta 10? Do you have questions about the Delta strains? We’re here to help! Understanding the difference between Delta strains and your typical Sativa or Indica strain can be a little difficult at first but we’re here to make it easier on you, bud.
What is Delta 8
Delta 8 is one of several cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant and is known for providing calming sensations and mild euphoric effects. However, it is not as potent as Delta 9, so this cannabinoid is less likely to give you side effects.
It is also one of many cannabinoids that are produced naturally by the cannabis plant, but not in a high concentration. For that reason, Delta 8 is usually manufactured from hemp-derived cannabidiol. The process of extraction is very expensive.
The way Delta 8 THC provides effects is by interacting with your body’s natural endocannabinoid system and binding CB1 and CB2 receptors in the brain. Users have stated that Delta 8 provides relaxation and better sleep quality. It has stress-relieving properties, making it suitable to use during the evenings.
It has been discovered that this cannabinoid is also used for medical purposes such as reducing nausea and vomiting, a drug for cancer treatment, treating sleeping conditions, inflammation, etc.
Delta 8 is very wanted on the market, and it is legal in most states across the US, according to the 2018 Farm Bill.
What is Delta 10
Delta 10 is one out of the many cannabinoids that you can find in the hemp and cannabis plants. It appears in trace amounts that are difficult to derive and is less potent than Delta 9 cannabinoid.
Just like other THC-based compounds, Delta 10 interacts with your body’s endocannabinoid system and, as a result, is known to help in reducing stress and tension. This cannabinoid may also provide uplifting effects and support creativity, productivity and alertness.
If used in a large dosage, Delta 9 can also have mild psychoactive properties, but they are not as intense as what its cousins Delta 8 and Delta 9 provide.
