  • The Controversy
  • The Last Nugget


The cannabis controversy continues even though there is a lot of available research for people on both sides of this issue. Cannabis is the mother plant of marijuana and hemp. Marijuana is high in Delta 9 THC while hemp is high in CBD and many of the other non-psychoactive cannabinoids. It is that simple


Delta 8 or Marijuana – The Same Vs Different


Delta 8 or Marijuana are different on most considerations, but they are the same in one way. Do you know what it is? They are both from cannabis. Hemp is from cannabis, and it is from this hemp that Delta 8 oil is extracted.


Chemical Structure Difference

The chemical structure difference between Delta 8 or marijuana, high in Delta 9 is simple. They are both a double bond, but they are located on their own separate carbon chain.  Delta-8’s double bond is on its 8th carbon chain, but the delta-9’s double bond is on its 9th carbon chain.


Effects Difference

Effects refer to whether the hemp or marijuana is indica or sativa and which terpenes it has. It used to be that everyone thought if it was an Indica type it was marijuana so has a high. This is not exactly true. Hemp can be Indica or Sativa or a Hybrid blend of both. Indica is relaxing and Sativa is energizing.


Marijuana, high in Delta 9 THC results in couch-lock and puts an individual in a state of incoherence. Delta 8 THC flower, some say, also gives a high but more measured and leaves the individual in reality and able to function but with more energy. And Delta 8 high is legal and marijuana high is illegal in most states.


High Similarity

The delta 8 or marijuana high do have similarities. The Delta 8 high is more of a body high rather than the head high that marijuana gives. There is no way to get around the fact that the Delta 9 THC high in marijuana is one that intoxicates and leaves one with paranoia. The Delta 8 high is a more productive high, as it were because an individual can continue with daily routines and with more energy and better focus.


Delta 8 or Marijuana – Health Benefits from Both


When we consider Delta 8 or marijuana, we are looking at a question many are still asking because they are confused about the differences. Delta 8 has more health benefits than even the CBD in hemp does not do. Continue reading to find out the differences.


Health Benefits from Marijuana

But now to consider the effects aspect of this controversy. Marijuana is highly documented as an illegal psychoactive substance.  Because of its many health benefits, several states have legalized it. This is great for those suffering from serious medical conditions such as Epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, Crohn’s disease, anorexia, and glaucoma.  And this is good news for those individuals who suffer from these conditions. The unfortunate part of this solution is that you will always have a psychoactive high with this treatment.


Health Benefits from Delta 8

Delta 8 is a trace cannabinoid in hemp, so it has to be “harvested” and put into a concentrate oil form. The regular hemp flower is then sprayed with this Delta 8 oil. The Delta 8 cannabinoid is unique in that it interacts with the CB1 receptors mostly found in the brain and the nervous system. Other hemp cannabinoids generally interact with the CB2 receptors of the Endocannabinoid System.


The significance of this is that Delta 8 cannabinoid has neuroprotective properties. That means that it can provide protection again neurological degenerative conditions like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and other such medical challenges.


Delta 8 or Marijuana – The Controversary

Delta 8 or marijuana, high in Delta 9 are both THC but one is psychoactive, and one is not even though it can provide a modified high.  Even with all the information available today, people still raise their eyebrows when you mention CBD hemp thinking you are doing something illegal.  But we will continue to clarify the difference and compare the similarities, so the facts are available.


The Last

Delta 8 or marijuana may remain confusing because of the similarities and the fact that it originates from the same plant – cannabis. Cannabis is not just marijuana and there is the rub. Too many people still think that anything connects to cannabis is intoxicating. But it is not. Hemp is not psychoactive, marijuana is. Delta 8 is a cannabinoid in hemp and so is Delta 9 but Delta 9 is limited to 0.3% or less to be legal.
