Delta-8-THC, one of the four most common cannabinoids, is similar to its psychoactive relative THC, but with several key differences.
Delta-8 has been described as an easier, more tolerable version of traditional THC, producing semi-sedative effects without much mental stimulation. According to the US National Cancer Institute, Delta-8-THC can be defined as an analogue of THC with antiemetic, anxiolytic, appetite-stimulating, analgesic, and neuroprotective properties.
Delta-8 THC chemically differs from Delta-9 THC by only a few atomic bonds and possesses many of the same beneficial qualities of Delta-9 THC, although Delta-8 is only around 25% as psychoactive as Delta-9 THC.
The 2018 Farm Bill specifically made all derivatives, isomers, and cannabinoids in hemp legal, provided the final product has less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC. For reference, Delta-8 THC is an isomer of CBD and a derivative of hemp and CBD. However, it is your responsibility to know your local and state laws
