Delta-8 THC is a cannabinoid with a similar structure to, Delta-9 THC. Although it can be found in the cannabis plant, Delta-8 THC is only present at low concentrations naturally, 0.1% and lower. It exists naturally and can also be produced by converting CBD or Delta 9 THC via a chemical reaction typically using heat, catalysts, altered pH environments, and/or solvents. However, many people report that they do not feel paranoia and other side effects that are felt when taking delta-9. Delta-8 gives a potent body effect leaving you feeling relaxed and euphoric. Delta-8 is said to possibly help some people with pain, inflammation, digestion, and other ailments.
