What is Delta-8?

At Palmetto Hemp Supply, we’re pleased to offer a variety of Delta-8 products. They’re a great option if you’d like to reap the benefits of CBD but don’t need the full psychoactive potency of Delta-9. Let’s take a closer look at what Delta-8 CBD is and how you may benefit from it. 

Difference Between Delta-8 and Delta-9

The "delta" part of Delta-8 and Delta-9 refers to double bonds. The difference between Delta-8 and Delta-9, however, is the location of the double bonds. While Delta-8 has a double bond on the 8th carbon in the chain, Delta-9’s bond is on the 9th carbon. 

So what exactly does this difference mean for you? The location of the double bond plays a vital role in how it interacts with your endocannabinoid system. Specifically, this means that while Delta-9 can get you “high” and make it difficult for you to concentrate, Delta-8’s effects provide a more well-rounded and subtle experience that allows you to retain your focus and feel less anxious or paranoid.

Why Use Delta-8

If you’ve used CBD in the past but dislike side effects like anxiety, paranoia, sleep issues, and laziness, Delta-8 may be a great alternative to try. In comparison to Delta-9, Delta-8 products seem to have minimal to no negative side effects. Rather, Delta-8 can boost your mood, help you feel more motivated, enhance your sleep quality, reduce nausea, and increase your appetite. Additionally, while we can’t claim Delta-8 treats health conditions, many of our customers are reported to believe it has brought them pain relief and has helped with anxiety and several other health challenges.
