Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) may be the most well-known cannabinoid in cannabis, but according to the National Hemp Association, scientists believe that there may be more than 100 different cannabinoids in cannabis. One cannabinoid that has recently emerged in the market is delta-8-THC.
Delta 8 THC extracts are a new class of products that are swiftly drowning the hemp market. While you may see them sold from brands that also sell CBD, these products create a very distinct sensation. Delta-8-Tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-8) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid, but one now more commonly produced in a laboratory.

How is Delta-8 made? Is It Even Safe to Use?
If you are new to sensations of feeling high, we suggest you proceed carefully … First, we want to address whether this product is safe.
We prefer to recommend plant-based compounds. The process of transforming one cannabinoid into another sounds unnatural, that’s a misconception. To create Delta 8, chemists expose CBD extract to a process called isomerization.
This is not a frightening process with many chemicals, "It's really just chemical manipulation through heat and pressure." Chemists who work in the Juana industry have created Delta 8 from regular THC for a while but using relatively new CBDs.
