To say that the hemp plant is amazing would be an understatement. The many cannabinoids that are in the hemp plant, as well as the terpenes, have such great healing properties. Most importantly, the safety profile of hemp CBD/THC supplements is excellent. You cannot overdose on CBD. It is non-addictive, works on systemic inflammation, and may calm both your body and mind. So what’s Delta 8 and how does that fit in?
Delta 8 vs. Delta 9
Most people are familiar with Delta-9 THC because it has strong psychotropic effects and that is why when hemp was legalized nationally — the Delta 9 was limited to less than .3% of the total ingredients in any CBD tincture, edible, beverage, capsule, or topical. Delta 8 is not as powerful as Delta 9 but it has the ability to give you a lovely feeling of happiness, lightness, and stimulates those CB1 and CB2 receptors to fire up and make more of your own cannabinoids. That’s what it’s all about, too. Stimulating your Endocannabinoid System to get you in balance.
Delta 8 Benefits
Some people like to start their day with just enough Delta 8 so that they breeze through any stressful situations. Many people use it as a sleep aid to get that really deep, restorative sleep that they need. You can find this amazing cannabinoid in tinctures, vape cartridges, and gummies. Just a little bit can go a really long way.
