Hemp offers better cannabinoid solutions.
Cannabinoids are the unique compounds native to plants in the cannabis family such as marijuana and hemp. Delta 9 THC and CBD are two of the most widely known cannabinoids of the more than 150 that have been identified.
The human body has a unique cannabinoid receptor system.
There are two main types of cannabinoid receptors that bind with cannabinoids introduced into the body, CB1 and CB2. These receptors are somewhat like keyholes, while the cannabinoids are like the keys that only work inside the right holes.
Delta 9 THC bonds only to the CB1 receptor. CBD bonds only to the CB2 receptor. This is an important distinction that will be explored in a moment.
THC is what creates the “high” from marijuana. This explains why marijuana is such a highly regulated and federally controlled substance. The most commonly accessible THC is Delta 9.
Alternatively, Delta 8 THC has historically been found in much smaller quantities, making it significantly harder to manufacture and propagate.
Our Delta 8 THC is made by converting 99.9% pure CBD isolate through a patent-pending process, allowing us to bring the variety of wellness benefits to you.
Delta 8 THC and Delta 9 THC have a nearly identical molecular structure. The keyword is nearly. Our Delta 8 THC has a double bond in the 8th position of the molecule while Delta 9 has a double bond in the 9th position.
This small but important molecular difference allows Delta 8 to bind to both CB1 and CB2 receptors. This makes Delta 8 a better solution to deliver therapeutic benefits as it allows engagement with both the THC and CBD receptors of the patient.
While still a THC, the psychoactive effect of Delta 8 is less of a mind experience and more of a full-body experience. Patients report a sense of wellness, with their body feeling at peace while maintaining a much clearer and more relaxed mind.
Thus, Delta 8 offers an alternative to patients seeking a medical cannabis alternative with a less psychoactive experience.
