Cannabis provides many useful cannabinoids, with THC being the most abundant. Most THC found in cannabis is a delta-9-THC molecule which has heavy psychotropic effects along with other benefits such as pain relief, nausea relief, appetite stimulation, anxiety reduction, and improved sleep. Delta-8-THC allows patients to enjoy all the benefits of THC with less psychoactivity.
So what is delta-8-THC? The typical delta-9-THC molecules are converted to delta-8-THC in a solvent-free distillate form in order to reduce the psychotropic activity of the THC while preserving its other effects. What a difference a few hydrogen bonds make! Delta-8-THC binds to both CB1 and CB2 receptors which means it provides a complete full-body action.
A few different companies are now offering delta-8-THC vape cartridges. The effects of the delta-8-vape I tried were not cerebral but I could not help but feel a little giddy from the complete and total relaxed state of my body. I did not feel sedated or loopy, I just felt like my body was floating on a stress-free cloud.
The effects lasted about 2 ½ hours, and when it was over there were no hazy after-effects or fogginess which makes this product ideal for daytime or nighttime use. I did feel the appetite stimulation, but there were no mindless munchies. My heart rate was never elevated while under the influence of the delta-8-THC which is another important aspect to this product.
Who Should Use It:
I highly recommend this product for those looking for pain relief and full body relaxation without the mentally altering effects of delta-9-THC. Cartridges are available in hybrid and indica formulations and the body effects lend it well to combining with other strains that are more cerebral.
Elderly patients worried about dizziness, racing heart rates and potential falls with other THC products can use this vape cartridge any time of day for nausea, pain relief, and anxiety.
This is a great product for chemotherapy patients to alleviate nausea and other side effects without feeling continually altered.
What a nice option for chronic pain, nausea and anxiety relief while still being able to participate in life with a clear head. Pure pain-free relaxation!
