What is Cannabidiol (CBD)?
The cannabis plant produces an array of chemicals called cannabinoids that have a wide range of effects within the human body. The National Institute of Health indicates that 144 of these cannabinoids have been identified. You’re probably most familiar with CBD (Cannabidiol) and THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol).
What is Delta 8 (THC-D8)? What is Delta 9 (THC-D9)?
Δ-8-tetrahydrocannabinol (delta-8-THC, Δ8-THC) and Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol are a psychoactive cannabinoids found in the Cannabis plant. Δ8-THC is an isomer of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (delta-9-THC, Δ9-THC), the compound commonly known as THC.∆8-THC is moderately less potent than Δ9-THC. This means that while its effects are similar to that of Δ9-THC, it would take more ∆8-THC to achieve a comparable level of effect. ∆8-THC and Δ9-THC both contain a double bond in their molecular chain, but the location is different. In ∆8-THC, the double bond is in the eighth carbon chain, while in Δ9-THC, the double bond is in the ninth.
Female cannabis plants contain at least 113 cannabinoids, including cannabidiol (CBD), thought to be the major anticonvulsant that helps people with multiple sclerosis, and cannabichromene (CBC), an anti-inflammatory which may contribute to the pain-killing effect of cannabis.
