What Does Delta-8 Do to the Body?
Delta-8 THC, a unique cannabinoid, is becoming increasingly popular. It’s a widely available compound, and its popularity has exploded. Many people are interested in finding out, “What does delta-8 do to the body?”
We’ll be answering questions about D8 and the delta-8 cannabinoid. By the end of this article, you will know how this new cannabinoid works in the body.
What is Delta-8 THC?
Let’s first talk about delta-8 THC for those who are unfamiliar with this compound.
Cannabis contains several cannabinoids, including delta-8-THC. This compound is related to Delta 9 THC but produces quite different effects in the body.
Delta-8 THC has a potency that is half that of delta-9. It is also psychoactive. Delta-9 is too potent for many people, so delta-8 THC is a great alternative.
This cannabinoid, delta-8, is only found in small amounts within plants. It is therefore very difficult for professionals and extractors to work with the compound organically. Delta-8 products can be synthesized using isomerization.
Professionals use isomerization to extract hemp-derived THC and rearrange its structure into delta-8 THC. The products that you can buy on the market contain D8.
The Endocannabinoid System
The endocannabinoid (ECS) system is found in the human body. You probably didn’t learn about the ECS in school because we are still learning about it. The entire system was not discovered until the 1990s.
The ECS is basically a system of signalers in the cells that work throughout the body. They help regulate chemicals, hormones, and other compounds so that all our systems function as they should. Your ECS’s main goal is to achieve homeostasis, which is a state of balance within the body.
There are two kinds of cannabinoid receptors in the ECS: CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are mainly located in the brain, while CB2 receptors are distributed throughout the peripheral immune system. The ECS controls various functions such as hunger, mood, sleep, and pain.
The ECS will kick in and regulate your body if it is thrown out of balance by stress, illness, or anything else. It can also produce endocannabinoids, which work with CB receptors and provide support. Sometimes, our ECS requires a boost, and we don’t always produce enough compounds to make us feel good.
What is Delta-8’s Relationship with Us?
When you consume delta-8 THC, it interacts with cannabinoid receptors in your body. Delta-8 has a stronger affinity for the CB1 receptors than the CB2 receptors.
The cannabinoid then interacts with CB1 receptors to produce a pleasant feeling. The compound works throughout the entire body, providing unique support based on the ECS’s needs. Cannabinoids will have different effects on everyone because our endocannabinoid system is unique.
Delta-8, despite the fact that it binds to CB1 more strongly than CB2, is well-known for its wide range of supportive effects. Many people find this useful. These results may vary from person to person. However, many people have reported that delta-8 THC is great for providing full-body comfort.
How Should Delta-8 Feel?
Delta-8 THC can have a variety of effects depending on who is using it. As a psychoactive compound, delta-8 THC is likely to get you high and blissful. You may also feel a little giggly. This compound is best used after a stressful day.
Delta-8’s effects on you are also dependent on the amount you consume and the product you use. Some products are more creative and uplifting, while others have a more cerebral strain.
