2022: The Year of Delta 8

Delta 8

While the worst of days seems to be behind us in the seemingly never-ending Covid saga, the stress and anxiety associated with it may still seem far out of reach for many.  According to KFF.org, “during the pandemic, about 4 in 10 adults in the U.S. have reported symptoms of anxiety or depressive disorder, a share that has been largely consistent, up from 1 in 10 adults who reported these symptoms from January to June 2019”. The poor mental health outcomes that people have experienced have led many to chemical-based drugs such as alcohol, antidepressants and painkillers, that lead to even more mental health issues. For those who are looking for safer, more natural remedies, the cannabis industry is here to help. That’s because cannabinoids such as CBD, CBN, CBG and more, have been proven to be safe and effective in combatting mood disorders such as depression and anxiety, all without leaving their users feeling depleted. One cannabinoid that’s been shown to have drastically positive effects on users such as  increased relaxation, decreased nausea, and decreased anxiety is Delta 8 THC. In fact, the combination of Delta 8 THC with traditional CBD has proven to heighten Delta 8’s positive effects. 

WHAT IS CBD?

CBD or Cannabidiol comes from a type of plant known as the Sativa plant. The plant originated in Thailand and spread to other parts of the world due to globalization. The widely popular plant requires low maintenance. The content of THC is less than 0.3% in every CBD-Based product. It grants CBD-Based product approval by the Food and Drugs Administration of the country. It lacks psychotropic properties. CBDfx products have a large variety and are available in solid, fluid, and even gaseous forms.

WHAT IS DELTA 8?

Delta 8 is one of the compounds that comes from the large marijuana plant family. Delta 8 is formed through a complicated process involving treating Delta 9. However, unlike Delta 9 (traditional THC), the Delta 8 variant is more effective and safer for the user. It’s important to note that delta 8 does have psychotropic properties, so users may experience a more “high” sensation that they’d feel from traditional CBD. Additionally, Delta 8 comes in various forms such as flower, gummies, chocolate, baked goods and more. As mentioned above, mixing Delta 8 with traditional CBD includes many benefits. Some of those include:
