There are a surprising number of new cannabinoids on the market, many of which are naturally occurring in industrial hemp plants and others that are synthesized from existing cannabinoids.
Delta 8 is an interesting combination of the two, and it is often referred to as a semi-synthetic cannabinoid. It does naturally occur in hemp and cannabis plants, but in very small amounts. To manufacture products that feature Delta 8, concentrated Delta 8 cannabinoid is made from CBD. The Delta 8 cannabinoid is very similar in chemical structure to Delta 9 THC, another psychoactive cannabinoid in marijuana. However, with Delta 9, there is a double bond on the 9th carbon atom, while Delta 8 THC has the double bond on the 8th carbon atom.
Interactions with the Body
The result of the position of the double bond in the chemical makeup of Delta 8 is a different method of interacting with the body. It binds to the CB1 receptors in the endocannabinoid system to produce a milder euphoric effect than THC.
Some describe this lower psychoactive effect as feeling about half as potent as regular THC. Some state that this milder or smoother euphoric sensation is more relaxing and de-stressing, calming the mind and the body. Individuals who experience the negative effects of THC often find that Delta 8 gummies produce none of these unwanted effects.
Many people use Delta 8 gummies to relax before bed. Starting with a small dose, a quarter or a half a gummy helps you to initially determine the best dosage for your wellness goals the first time you try them. These gummies typically take about an hour to an hour and a half to feel the full effects, and these effects can last up to eight hours, though the duration of effects regularly varies from person to person.
