Delta-8 and other cannabinoids are becoming increasingly popular in the cannabis industry. Global Source Distribution carries a variety of cannabinoid products sure to leave your customers satisfied. These compounds are like delta-9 THC, which is the primary psychoactive cannabinoid found in marijuana, but they have slightly different chemical structures and effects.
Delta-8, delta-9, delta-10, and THCV are all cannabinoids that are found in the hemp plant. While they have some similarities, there are also distinct differences between these compounds.
Delta-8 THC: Delta-8 THC is a minor cannabinoid that is found in trace amounts in the cannabis plant. This is an incredible cannabinoid that can offer a variety of intense feelings and sensations. It has a double bond on the eighth carbon chain, giving it slightly different effects than delta-9 THC. Delta-8 THC is believed to offer a milder psychoactive high that is often described as more clear-headed and focused than delta-9 THC. It is also believed to have potential therapeutic benefits, including anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties.
Delta-9 THC: Delta-9 THC is the primary psychoactive cannabinoid found in marijuana. It has a double bond on the ninth carbon chain and is responsible for the “high” associated with marijuana use. Delta-9 THC is believed to have potential therapeutic benefits, including pain relief, appetite stimulation, and reducing nausea.
Delta-10 THC: Delta-10 THC is a novel cannabinoid that is similar to delta-8 and delta-9 THC, but has a double bond on the tenth carbon chain. It is believed to offer a mild psychoactive high that is similar to delta-8 THC, but with its own unique effects.
THCV: THCV, or tetrahydrocannabivarin, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that is structurally like THC. It is believed to offer a range of potential therapeutic benefits, including appetite suppression, reducing anxiety and panic attacks, and potentially treating diabetes and obesity.
THCP: If your customers are looking for an especially intense THC experience, THCP may be just the go to. Also known as tetrahydrocannabiphoral, THCP binds to CB1 receptors up to 33 times more often than traditional THC.
Overall, while delta-8, delta-9, delta-10, and THCV all share some similarities, they also have distinct differences in their chemical structure and effects. As research continues, we will likely learn more about the potential benefits and effects of these cannabinoids, and see more products being developed that incorporate these compounds.
