All forms of Tetrahydrocannabinol, THC (THC), are Delta-8, Delta-9, and Delta-10. THC, a cannabinoid naturally found in cannabis plants, is responsible for the psychoactive effects that give people the “high.”

Their potency is the main difference between Delta-8 and Delta-9. The strongest is Delta-9, while Delta-8 is stronger than Delta-9. Delta-10 is less potent than Delta-8. Although they share a chemical formula, each one has a slightly different structure, which causes them to have somewhat different effects on the human body.

What is Delta-8?

Delta-8 THC, a psychoactive compound, has attracted attention because of its “relationship” to Delta-9. It is found in minimal amounts in cannabis plants but can also be extracted from hemp plants in higher concentrations.

How It Works

Delta-8 THC interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid systems and binds to cannabinoid receptors throughout the nervous system.


Delta-8 can give you a mildly psychoactive high. This high doesn’t last nearly as long as that provided by Delta-9 THC and is usually less intense.

There are many ways to use Delta-8. You can smoke or vape it, make a distillate, or tincture, or add it to gummies and infused beverages.
