Delta 8 and Marijuana do have something in common and that is they are related but just as each child in a family is different, so are Delta 8 and what makes Marijuana what it is, Delta 9. Delta 8 and Marijuana have similar chemical structures but there is a key difference that makes Delta 8 non-psychoactive and Delta 9 highly psychoactive.


Looking at the Chemical Structure


Delta 8 and Delta 9 Marijuana are different, but they have enough in common that they both bear the name “Delta”.  But they are different in the position they have in their chemical structure. Delta 8 and Marijuana may both claim a psychoactive high, but those “high” experiences for the user are very different.


Delta 8 and Marijuana – Chemical Difference

Both molecules of Delta 8 and Delta 9 Marijuana are double bond chemicals, and the sameness pretty much stops there.  Delta 8 and Marijuana Delta 9 both have a double bond. The main difference in this chemical structure is in the location of their double bond. Delta-8’s lies on the 8th carbon chain; Delta-9’s is on the 9th carbon chain. Delta 8 and Marijuana


Legal or Illegal.

Delta 8  hemp flower and Delta 9 Marijuana share another difference. Delta 8 is legal per the 2018 Farm Bill, but Marijuana Delta 9 is illegal in most states.  There are eleven states which have legalized recreational marijuana and 30 which have legalized it as “medical marijuana”.  Marijuana Delta-9 is illegal on a federal basis just as Delta 8 is legal on a federal basis even though some states chose to classify it as illegal. Delta 8 and Marijuana Delta 9 may seem like they are in competition but their legal status across the country is very different.


Delta 8 and Marijuana – Trace vs High Content

Delta 8 and Marijuana Delta 9 have this difference as well. Delta 8 is in trace amounts in the hemp flower and Delta 9 is in high percentages in marijuana. Per the 2018 Farm Bill, Delta 9 can be only at 0.3% or less in the hemp flower for it to remain legal.  Also it is important to remember that hemp and marijuana are both cannabises. It is inaccurate refer to Marijuana as Cannabis because Hemp is Cannabis as well.


Delta 8 and Marijuana – When Less is More


Hemp flower Delta 8 and Delta 9 Marijuana may have similarities, but the differences are probably their biggest advantage. Delta 8 flower is the one you can consume, enjoy a modified “high” that allows you to be energized but not out of touch and will not leave you with paranoia and anxiety.


Delta 9 Marijuana Side Effects

Delta 8 and Delta 9 Marijuana both have effects and benefits as a matter of fact. But lets just look at Marijuana Delta 9 first. It may induce disconnected thoughts, panic reactions, a perception of things that is eschew at best and hallucinatory experiences. It is also intensely addictive. Death may occur but when it was given to animals, death occurred only after given 1000 mg


The Delta 8 and Marijuana Delta 9 have no similarities here. Behavioral changes after extremely high doses include sedation, muscle tremors, huddled posture, hypersensitivity along with hypermobility.


Delta 8 Effects and Benefits

Delta 8 and Marijuana part ways again as we start to discuss the Delta 8 effects and benefits. Delta 8 has effects, and it has benefits but one thing it does not have and that is the intense psychoactive high. Delta 8 has a more energized effect than other cannabinoids, but the user remains in control and in a state of alertness. This is not so with Delta 9.  The reason that so many are excited about the Delta 8 is the extra “humph” it gives but there is still no “high” associated with it and neither are there the intense side effects of the Delta 9.  Delta 8 has benefits as well and some that may surprise you in the next section.


Medical Benefits from Both


Delta 8 and Marijuana both have medical benefits. It has long been believed that glaucoma is one condition that marijuana and reduce the effects. Delta 8 helps with symptoms that plague those in cancer treatments and anxiety and something else that you may not know about.


About Delta 8 Benefits

Delta 8 and Marijuana have separate health benefits so let’s look at the benefits of Delta 8 because this is something unique. Most cannabinoids interact with the CB2 receptors in the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Delta 8 is different because it interacts mostly with the CB1 receptors which are in the brain and the nervous system. The Delta 8 has neuroprotective properties so that means it is a barrier to all those neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and many others.


The Last

pepita gigante de ouro



Delta 8 and Delta 9 Marijuana are alike but very different and it is important to know those differences because it may save your life. Marijuana is addictive and intoxicating and it is illegal in most states. These terms cannot be interchanged so avoid that trick into thinking that they can be used interchangeably. Not so! Delta 9 may have some health benefits, but it comes with a “high” cost. Delta 8 has effects without intoxication and benefits without addiction.
