Due to its legal status throughout the United States, and its legal grey area throughout the world, Delta 8 is growing in popularity. So what exactly is Delta 8? Why is it legal? What does it do?

Delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol is a compound from the cannabis plant similar to delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, commonly called Delta-9 THC. THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) is the primary compound that leads to the euphoric and relaxing effects of using cannabis. Delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol is a less potent derivative of cannabis than the Delta-9 cannabinol isomer. 


To answer the question that everyone wants to know: Can Delta 8 get you high? The answer is yes, Delta 8, although less potent than the traditionally used Delta 9 compound, can get you high. Many users describe it as lighter cannabis high with relaxing and calming effects, but without the sometimes paranoia or anxiety that can come on with potent traditional cannabis strains. Delta-8 can help with insomnia. 

Side effects of Delta-8 are similar to those of Delta-9 THC and include dry mouth and red eyes. Like Delta-9, Delta 8 stimulates the appetite. Other side effects include: 

  • difficulties with coordination or balance
  • increased heart rate
  • slight unease or light social anxiety for first-time users
  • short term memory impairment
