If you’re new to the world of cannabis, learning about different strains and cannabinoids can feel overwhelming. One of the newer and most popular cannabinoids is Delta 8 THC cannabis.
Understanding what Delta 8 THC is, including the rules and regulations around it, is important for anyone looking to add it to their daily routine. Delta 8 THC can be taken in the form of flower (the stuff you smoke, not bouquets), gummies, tablets, tinctures, and oils. Delta 9 THC is responsible for the high most people associate with cannabis. Delta 8 still provides the same psychoactive effects of delta 9 THC, but it does not provide all of the effects people associate with delta 9 THC. Most commonly, some people feel a wave of paranoia or anxiety when smoking delta 9 THC, but they may not feel that way when taking delta 8.
