It is well-known that Tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC (THC), is the main ingredient in marijuana that gives you the “high”. THC is what gives each type of cannabis their specific psychoactive properties.
Does Delta 8 Get You High?
Many people are curious if Delta 8 can get you high. Although it does get you high, the effect is milder than that of Delta 9 THC. It can also make you feel sleepy, rather than euphoric, like other indica marijuana strains.
Delta 8 THC is subject to the same metabolic process that Delta 9 THC when heated, so statistically they are identical. However, Delta 8 THC does not get you as high. It has a lower affinity for binding to cannabinoid receptors within your brain, which makes it less psychoactive than other cannabinoids.
What Is the Maximum You Can Get From Delta-8 THC?
Although Delta 8 may have an euphoric effect it will not be as strong as other cannabinoids. Many users report feeling relaxed, sleepy and forgetful after using Delta8.
Delta 8 is found in non-smokable forms, such as raw cannabis. It’s known as a “glucoside” which means that it’s bonded with a sugar molecule, in this case glucose. To release Delta 8 THC, it must be first removed from the sugar molecule. Decarboxylation is a process that involves heating cannabis to activate a chemical reaction that removes each COOH group (carboxylic acids) and converts Delta 8 THC to Delta 9 THC.
