Delta-8 THC and Delta-9 THC Promotes Health with Fewer Side Effects

You could say that Delta 8 THC and Delta 9 THC are sisters. They both come from the cannabis plant. That said, Delta 8 is stealing the spotlight these days, quickly becoming the darling of people who are looking for health benefits with fewer side effects.

There is no question THC promotes health. For example, it relieves inflammation which is the root of most diseases. It is also a pain reliever; a symptom of many health conditions. Here’s the catch, the potency in Delta-9 is much stronger, yet so are the side effects. That’s the big differentiator.

At TerraSol, we are a premier Milwaukee area hemp dispensary and certified hemp educators. With that in mind, we welcome your inquiries and are pleased to be able to shed light on the subject of cannabis. That includes Delta-8 and Delta-9.

New Research Documents the Shift

When there is a trend, studies often follow. The largest study to date on Delta-8 comes from researchers at the University of Buffalo, and the University of Michigan.

Of the 500 study participants, they cited using Delta-8 most often for stress relief, reduction in anxiety, and to treat pain. It helps them mellow out and gives them a break from troubling health symptoms. Many respondents also appreciate that Delta-8 THC leaves them with fewer side effects than the more intense Delta-9. Those side effects include paranoia, and hunger to mention a few. In addition, the data reflects more comfort in easily available delivery methods of Delta-8. For instance, vaping, edibles, or salves.

Detailing The Difference Between Delta 8 And Delta 9  

Both Delta 8 and Delta 9 can be derived from the hemp plant, both are intoxicating, but are also very different from each other. Typically we find Delta 8 to be more relaxed and sedative while hemp-derived Delta 9 is going to be more uplifting, energetic, and psychoactive (psychoactive; stimulating in the brain; “high” effect).

You won’t find that with Delta-8. Will it get you high? Yes, but it’s a different high. THC in Delta-8 produces a smoother, more mellow experience. The relaxed state of Delta-8 happens over time and lasts a little longer. In addition, it doesn’t cause physical or mental impairment. This way you can go on with your day.   

Our community should know that in Wisconsin, both Delta 8 and Delta 9, when derived from hemp, are legal cannabinoids that can be consumed in many ways. Currently, hemp-derived Delta 9 can only be sold when the percentage is in correspondence with the weight of the item. Thus edibles and tinctures/oils are the only way we can currently sell Delta 9 – smokable flowers and vaping is not an option as the percentages per weight of vape cartridges and flowers would not be legal.

Currently, TerraSol is able to sell Delta 8 in all forms; smokable flowers, tinctures/oils, edibles, vapes, concentrates, and topicals.  Hemp-derived Delta 8 and Delta 9 have numerous benefits and effects for those who consume them such as being anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving, mood-boosting, relaxing, sleep-assisting, anxiety-relieving as well as capable of delivering an intoxication (“high” feeling) when consumed in higher doses. Currently, you can buy hemp-derived Delta 8 + 9 items in any quantity without any type of license/card as long as you are 21 or older.     

In Wisconsin, Delta 9 THC must be hemp-derived and within legal percentages per weight of the item in order to be sold and purchased.  There are currently no restrictions as far as the quantity you can purchase at a time per person, as well as no necessitating a medical or recreational identification card.  You do, however, need to be 21 or older in order to legally purchase hemp-derived Delta 8 + 9 THC products.

Health Benefits Of THC

Most of our customers are looking for THC to relieve health concerns and symptoms. Uses are as varied as each person. Here are a few of the ways Delta-8 and Delta-9 can help with your health:

  • Pain relief – Studies reveal that THC works in the central nervous system to block pain signals from reaching the brain.
  • Lower inflammation Studies show that THC can help reduce the production of immune compounds that trigger inflammation.
  • Reduce nausea – THC is shown to reduce nausea and vomiting. In fact, a synthetic form is used and is FDA approved to treat cancer patients.
  • Reduce insomnia Research backs it up. THC can help you fall asleep and even improve breathing while catching your sleep.
  • Muscle relaxant – The relaxing effects of THC are well documented. In fact, the compound is found to relieve muscle pain, cramping and spasms often experienced in conditions like MS.
