Delta-8 THC is a psychoactive compound that has similar effects to delta-9 THC, the main psychoactive component of cannabis. It can cause a mild high, but the intensity of the effects will depend on the dose, method of consumption, and other factors. Delta-8 THC is found in raw cannabis in the form of a glycoside, and its effects typically last for 2-3 hours. It can be used to reduce pain, nausea, vomiting, protect nerve cells, and restore appetite.
However, it is important to start with a low dose and work your way up slowly to avoid taking too much. Delta-8 THC is still relatively new and there are no fixed parameters to measure its effects.
