Platinum Natural CBD: What is Delta 8?
Understanding Full Spectrum CBD
Full spectrum CBD is an industry-wide term to describe the supplement that contains multiple cannabis plant extracts, including essential oils, terpenes, and other cannabinoids, such as cannabinol. The difference is that they also contain up to 0.3% of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the cannabinoid in the cannabis plant that produces the ‘high’ feeling in people. The main form of the THC in medical-grade cannabis and regular full spectrum products is Delta 9 THC, a cannabinoid molecule in marijuana (cannabis) that’s long been recognized as the main psychoactive ingredient, that is, the substance that causes the intoxication, in higher concentrations, not usually with CBD. When taking regular full spectrum products there is no need to worry about failing a drug test or having psychoactive effects due to delta 9 THC being in the smaller quantities it is with CBD. The THC is there to offer stronger feelings of relaxation and pain relief, without intoxication, and the amount of THC allows a quicker feeling once ingested, over CBD isolate.
The Details Behind CBD with Delta 8 THC
Delta-8 THC, or delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol, is a naturally occurring chemical compound that’s found in small traces in hemp and cannabis plants. This is where the similarities occur with delta 9 THC because they are found in the same area and way and they both have similar chemical structures. The difference is the interaction the two have when ingested to the human body and the endocannabinoid system. Both delta-8 and delta-9 are forms of THC and both produce a euphoric, fuzzy feeling, but Delta-8 causes a milder high. It is creating a buzz and people who are in the world of cannabis and CBD have referred to it as a lighter version of delta 9, other common THC side effects like paranoia, anxiety, and drowsiness are also less potent. With this product the effects of a drug test differ, this is depending on what is being tested for, and due to the new product it might cause a failure.
