Naturally occurring in most cannabis strains in minimal concentrations, Delta 8 thc is a cannabis compound that is new to the market. It has a lot of similarities to THC as a psychoactive cannabinoid. Delta-8 extraction takes more processing. Delta-8 contains neuroprotective properties. These properties can reduce nausea, anxiety, pain and also increase appetite. However, this compound produces some psychotropic effects, but those are less potent than Delta-9, which is the primary form of THC found in cannabis.
