WHAT IS DELTA 8 THC ?
Delta 8 THC is one of the 100+ cannabinoids in hemp. Processors extract and concentrate it since it only exists naturally in small percentages within the cannabis flower. Like other cannabinoids, it interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system – specifically the CB1 receptor of the nervous system – to bring on its psychotropic effects. Despite the difference in the natural quantities of Delta 8 and Delta 9 in cannabis, when concentrated, they interact with the nervous system similarly.
