Delta 8 THC derived from the Cannabis Sativa Plant.

Some of you may have heard of Delta 8 THC, also known as Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol. It is a psychoactive substance naturally occurring in small quantities in the cannabis plant. Delta 8 THC is classified as an isomer of CBD and Delta-9 THC. An isomer is a compound with the same formula but a different arrangement of atoms and slightly different properties.

Delta 8 THC is one of many cannabinoids found within the cannabis plant. Since it is not significant, the most concentrated amounts of this are derived from CBD. There are over 100 cannabinoids produced naturally by cannabis but Delta 8 THC is not found in substantial quantities like it’s counterparts.. As a result, concentrated amounts of delta 8 THC are typically manufactured from another type of cannabidiol, hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) through a trusted extraction process with lab partners.

You can receive all your favorite Delta 8 THC positives in Canvast's Shifters Delta-8 Gummies. We work with independent 3rd party, ISO-accredited and DEA Certified labs that adhere to strict pharmaceutical-grade industry controls and processes so you can feel safe embarking on your Delta 8 THC journey. 

Which is stronger for pain relief?

Nowadays, information about Delta 8 THC is everywhere. It is both online and advertised in print media. We at Canvast know it is closely related to Delta 9 THC (tetrahydocannabinol) which is one of the main and most known cannabinoids present in cannabis, but —it has always been the center of debate among health professionals after reviewing cannabis research and whether it favors those with medical conditions. By 2020, Delta 8 THC had bloomed and become available nationally. Consumers are always encouraged to learn more about the properties of Delta-8 THC and Delta 9 THC as they utilize them to avoid having adverse effects from consuming too much.

Research teams have sowed the fruit of their labors. A recent survey described that Delta 8 THC can be considered the nicer relative of Delta 9 THC because of its possible benefits with fewer adverse or intoxicating effects.

Next, let's dive into Delta 8 THC potential benefits.

Is Delta-8 or Delta-9 better for anxiety?

Delta 8 THC is pretty comparable to the widely known Delta 9 THC. Both have been shown to help those with medical conditions and pain, but it is said that Delta 9 THC has more psychoactive ingredients compared to Delta 8 THC. If you have been a consumer of the latter, many have agreed that Delta 8 THC may have been efficient in alleviating stress; as well as maybe those experiencing aches.

Delta 8 may relieve stress and binds CB1 or cannabinoid receptors in the endocannabinoid system. This enhances the level of energy in your brain by potentially lessening your stress responses. Studies have also shown that Delta 8 has more thera-potential than Delta 9 THC. Delta 9-THC is classified as an agonistic compound while Delta 8-THC is antagonistic. Agonistic compounds enhance or replicate the effects your brain is already experiencing while antagonistic does not. This is very important to mention to those who state THC makes them anxious or paranoid. CB2 receptors are also more associated with Delta 8; they produce stronger effects as CB1 receptors are found in the brain. Other CB2 receptors are also present in our digestive system.

Let us go over the potential benefits of consuming Delta 8 THC again:

  1. Delta 8 THC is suggested to have the potential of relieving chronic pain. It may be found to reduce inflammation. For any one with pain-related symptoms, Delta 8 may have the potential to impact the attitude of pain in the user's mind. 
  2. Delta 8 THC may have the potential to  ease anxiety and depression. The CB1 receptors of your endocannabinoid system are responsible for handling stress and depression.Minor cannabinoids such as CBD, CBN and CBG may play a  great deal in stabilizing the nervous system -  Imagine what delta 9 can do!
  3. Delta 9 THC may be found to have  antiemetic as well as anxiolytic properties. It has been suggested that Delta 9 may assist in comforting sickness and vomiting.
  4. Delta 8 THC may be found to properly regulate calcium and potassium in the CNS (Central Nervous System). Delta-8 may be beneficial for stomach issues and also may have the potential to support digestion. 

After hemp became legal on a federal level and people used cannabis products for commercial consumption in 2018, CBD and THC supporters increased. Users have become more open to trying alternative or more organic options to reduce side effects and avoid pharmaceuticals  with potentially harmful chemicals. Reports showed Delta 8 THC could have the best of both worlds as they get everything from Delta 8 THC as they do with Delta 9 THC. You can now find Delta 8 THC products within legal cannabis dispensaries. One thing to keep in mind, is despite it's federal legality status, Delta 8 THC could still trigger a positive drug test.

Studies show that anxiety affects approximately 40 million people in the US yearly.Delta 9 THC has the possibility of showing potential benefits for anxiety, but this has been also known to have side effects undesired by those with anxiety (such as possible paranoia). If you are uncertain about how Delta-9 THC will affect you, you may turn to the help Delta 8 THC may have with the potential to relieve anxiety. 

Which Delta is the strongest?

Delta 9 THC and Delta 8 THC (as well as Delta 10) are all types of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). The cannabinoid is a rising compound in cannabis and is the reason for people's psychoactive effects, causing the feeling of a "high" experience.

The difference between the two THCs,  Delta 8 and Delta 9, is their potency. Delta 9 THC effects feel the strongest, with Delta 8 coming in second for overall effects. They all have the same chemical formula but come out as different in terms of structural makeup, such as how the molecules interact with your receptors. 

It is important to note that all forms of THC  can cause a positive drug test. If you are subject to regular testing we suggest avoiding any THC products and opting for a broad spectrum CBD oil.

What does a Delta 9 effect feel like?

Delta 9 THC derived from cannabis sativa is known for having powerful psychoactive effects. Those who have tried this testified experiences of auditory hallucinations, feeling of paranoia, and deformed motor skills. This has adverse effects and it can last for up to four hours. Marijuana contains Delta 9 THC which gives users that high effect.

Canvast Supply Co. informs the public that Delta 8 is legal. 

Coupled with studies and a full disclaimer. Delta 8 THC is legal at a federal level and at most state levels, with some nuances. Most states have acknowledged H.R. 2, which is known as The Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, also known as the 2018 Farm Bill. Hence, our offering of allowing you to feel your best as we invite you to enjoy our gummies, chocolate dream drops, premium vape cartridge, all contain cannabinoids such as Delta 8 THC and Delta 9 THC.
