What is Delta 8 THC?

Delta 8 THC is another type of cannabinoid found in the hemp plant like CBD, CBG, CBC, CBDv, and is an isomer of cannabidiol or “CBD”. Delta 8 can alter and elevate your mood, and give you a moderate “buzz” but without the same levels of intoxication, anxieties, or paranoia typically associated with delta 9 THC. Δ8THC users typically report feeling far more active and outgoing with increased confidence.

If you are using cannabinoids recreationally and want to get stuff done, hang out with friends, or have a video game marathon, Delta 8 THC may be the better choice. If you’re looking to sit on the couch and watch a movie, Delta 9 THC may be the way to go.


Because Delta 8 THC is so closely related to Delta 9 THC it is possible it can show up positively on a drug test the same way Delta 9 THC would. Most traditional drug screen panels test for the presence of cannabinoids, delta 8 THC being a cannabinoid. It is not typical that a common drug screen panel would screen for certain cannabinoids to know if the consumer is using delta 8 or 9 THC. All cannabinoids are assumed to show the presence of cannabis in this case. It is advised that the use of any products that contain THC content should be used at your own discretion.
