It’s safe to say that the trend of CBD oil is here to stay. It’s popped up everywhere from coffee to tinctures to gummies and everywhere in between.

And as with any new health and wellness product, there’s been a bunch of new variations of CBD products. Think things like calming gummies, CBD sleep aids with ingredients like melatonin and special herbal blends, and even CBD for pain with proprietary ingredients designed specifically for everyday aches and pains.

The latest innovation is a little different than your average CBD product. It’s known as Delta 9 THC. So, what is it? You’ve surely seen Delta 8 and maybe Delta 10 THC products out there. So what’s really the difference?

The Difference Between Delta 9 and Delta 8

This is actually quite simple. Delta 8, Delta 9, and Delta 10 are all known as “cannabinoids.” And cannabinoids are the teeny tiny particles that are the working ingredients in the cannabis plant. CBD is one such cannabinoid, and THC is another. Cannabis that’s high in THC is called marijuana, while cannabis that’s low in THC (no more than 0.3%) is called hemp, and is the only kind that’s federally legal.

The various deltas are different isomers of THC, meaning they’re all basically THC but they have slightly different chemical structures. The concentrations of those cannabinoids vary greatly. Delta 8 and Delta 10 are found naturally in the hemp plant, but at very low concentrations.

That means that in order for companies to create products that have any sort of effect, they have to use a process known as “synthetic conversion.” The natural amount of Delta 8 THC in hemp is very low, so additional chemicals are needed to convert other cannabinoids in hemp, like CBD, into Delta 8 THC. And with this conversion process, harmful unwanted additives and/or chemicals may be used that you otherwise wouldn’t want in your products!

Delta 9 THC, on the other hand, is much more abundant in the plant and therefore does not need to go through an extensive, complicated conversion process. It’s the same old THC you’re used to, just derived from hemp!

What Does Delta 9 THC Do?

Just like THC derived from marijuana, a lot! Some may use it for added relaxation and calm at the end of a long day. Others may use it as a more natural way to drift off to dreamland. No matter what you use it for, Delta 9 THC can provide a number of benefits like:

  • Greater sense of relaxation and calm
  • Better sleep patterns
  • Supportive relief for everyday aches and pains
  • Complete body balance
  • And much more!

The best part about CBD and Delta 9 THC products is that you can make it work for your everyday routine! Most people experience positive results with these products, so long as they select the best ones for their needs.
