What’s the Difference Between Delta-9 THC, CBD or Delta-8?
Return to Uncategorized

Cannabis use has become a popular topic of conversation. Cannabis is a plant that contains more than eighty chemical compounds, including CBD and THC compounds. While Delta-9 THC is the major active ingredient in marijuana, marijuana is a type of cannabis plant. Delta-9 THC and CBD are isolated compounds derived from a specific cannabis plant. CBD has gained interest in the last few years due to the growing potential for health benefits. Delta-9 THC and CBD aren’t the only cannabis compounds being commonly used. Delta-8 is also becoming popular for an effect that combines the benefits of CBD and Delta-9 THC. With the constantly growing number of products available, it’s good to know the three major types available and their benefits.

Delta-9 THC

Delta-9 THC has been talked about the longest and is the most studied. These products work with neurotransmitters in your brain to affect things like mood, sleep, and memory, but also results in a high and some level of impairment depending on how each individual processes Delta-9 THC.


CBD is the more widely accepted cannabinoid, partially because there is no high associated with it. CBD does not have the same psychoactive effects of its cousin Delta-9 THC so you can get symptom relief without the downtime associated with Delta-9 THC products. CBD is proving itself useful in relieving the symptoms of a variety of disorders including anxiety, pain, muscle disorders, Parkinson disease, Crohn’s disease, and many others.


Delta-8 is a cannabinoid compound that shares effects with both CBD and Delta-9 THC. It is typically described as being more potent than CBD but also has some psychoactive and intoxicating effects similar to Delta-9 THC. Both produce a euphoric, fuzzy feeling, but Delta-8 causes a milder high and milder side effects compared to Delta-9 THC while still providing symptom relief.
