While both Delta-8 THC and Delta-9 THC are two of the most well-known and popular cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, they have some key differences in their chemical structure and effects on the body.
Delta-9 THC is the primary psychoactive compound found in cannabis and is known for its potent effects on the mind and body. It is a highly researched and well-understood cannabinoid that has been shown to have a variety of therapeutic benefits, including pain relief, appetite stimulation, and stress reduction.
On the other hand, Delta-8 THC is a less common cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant, and it is a structural analogue of Delta-9 THC. While Delta-8 THC is also psychoactive, it is thought to have a milder effect on the mind and body compared to Delta-9 THC.
However, there is currently limited research on Delta-8 THC and its potential therapeutic benefits. While some studies have suggested that Delta-8 THC may have anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving, and appetite-stimulating properties, more research is needed to fully understand its effects on the body and mind.
Furthermore, because Delta-8 THC is a less common cannabinoid, it is often produced through a chemical conversion process from CBD or Delta-9 THC, which can result in impurities or contaminants in the final product. We, at RAD, believe in keeping the hemp plant as close to it's natural benefits as possible and because pretty much all high Delta-8 products on the market are synthetically made through a heavy chemical process, we believe that Delta-9 is a much safer, more effective, natural option.
In summary, while Delta-8 THC may have some potential therapeutic benefits, the current research is limited, and it may not be as well-understood or reliable as Delta-9 THC. Delta-9 THC is a well-established and highly researched cannabinoid that has been shown to have a variety of therapeutic benefits, making it a better choice for those looking to experience the benefits of cannabis.
