We've all known about Delta-9 THC (the illegal one) being the cannabinoid in Cannabis that gets you high. With on-going research into cannabis accelerating, it has been discovered that Delta-8 has antiemetic (Anti-Nausea), anxiolytic (Relieves Anxiety), orexigenic (Increases Appetite), analgesic (Relieves Pain), and neuroprotective (Improves Neural Function) properties.
Delta-8 is said to be "two-thirds" as potent as Delta-9 THC and is said to have a more relaxing and calming high. Delta-9 can sometimes cause anxiety or paranoia and it is said this doesn't occur with Delta-8, in fact, the opposite is true!
Delta-8 has never been designated as an illegal molecule by the Federal Government and as far as the industry is concerned it is legal in all states that have not created a state law banning it (Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Mississippi, Montana, Rhode Island, and Utah, do not allow sales of Delta-8).
