For the average cannabis consumer, THC, CBD and CBN are commonly known cannabinoids. But, what about others like…the Delta-8 cannabinoid?

What is Delta-8?

Delta-8 or Delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol is a minor cannabinoid in cannabis that has gained popularity for its different chemical structure. The high you receive from Delta-8 is a less psychoactive experience than the one you receive from its brother, Delta-9 (a.k.a. The psychotropic cannabis we all know and love), and can offer calming effects. It’s found in small quantities in most cannabis strains and can be easily isolated and concentrated to create Delta-8 specific products.

How is the Delta-8 Cannabinoid Produced?

Delta-8 is produced when Delta-9 breaks down over time, or through a process of oxidation. It can also be extracted from cannabis using various methods, like distillation or isolation.
