Delta 8 THC is an isomer of THC similar to Delta-9 THC. Delta-9 has been the center of drug prohibition since the 1930’s when the government made it illegal. However Delta-8, although similar, is different and offers users a different experience. A the molecular level, D8 has an affinity towards the CB2 receptors which are located primarily within the immune system and gastrointestinal system. D9 on the other hand binds to CB1 receptors which are located mainly in the brain. That’s why you “get high”.
