How Delta-8-THC Works In The Body

Cannabinoids, including CBD, delta-9-THC, and delta-8-THC cause their effects by interacting with the cannabinoid receptors of the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is a complex system in mammals that is responsible for maintaining homeostasis in the body.

The ECS is responsible for regulating mood, pain and inflammation response, appetite, memory, the immune response, among other important bodily functions.

Delta-8-THC like its famous precursor binds to the CB1 receptors of the ECS. These are mainly concentrated in the brain, which could explain its psychoactive effects. But unlike delta-9-THC, it has less affinity for the CB1 receptors, which could be the reason for its mild effects.

This lesser-known cannabinoid shares most of the benefits its infamous sibling is known for. However, it is more preferred because of its reduced psychoactive effects and increased effectiveness.

Many people report Delta 8 helps with pain and inflammation, helps with anxiety, stimulates appetite and sleep benefits. 

Try one of the  gummies or vape cartridges made by 3Chi, one of the leading hemp companies, these vape cartridge delivers up to 95% pure delta-8 concentrate with the 5% being CBN, CBC, and terpenes to give you the benefits of the entourage effect.
