The Difference Between Delta 8 and Delta 9
Delta 8 was first documented by scientists in the early 1940's. Although Delta 8 was known about, scientists were more interested in CDB (cannabidiol) and THC, and so concentrated more on these compounds. Delta 8 was sadly left behind for a few years, although some investigation and research was carried out as time has gone by. Very little was heard or known about Delta 8, even now it is still a relative newcomer. It is, however, safe to say that is all going to change very soon,

Delta 8 is a psychoactive compound just as Delta 9 is, but there is a difference. The psychoactive effects of Delta 8 are much more subtle than Delta 9. This means that the 'stoned' sensation experienced with Delta 9 is not the same. Delta 8 actually aids cognitive function, in that it gives way to a clarity and an alertness of the mind not possible with Delta 9.
Delta 9 is famous for giving a 'brain fog', and the term 'couched' meaning a user can be so physically sedated that they are stuck to the couch, is often heard. Stoners often are physically incapable of moving, they become very lethargic and brain function noticeably slows down.
Delta 8 has shown to be uplifting and more of a body hit, not only relieving pain, but giving an overall feeling of well-being.
In 2019 Delta 8 started to make it's way into the cannabis market. A relative newcomer, but already Delta 8 is making a big name for itself.
