The type of Delta-8 strain you choose can have a huge impact on the effects of your euphoria. A Delta-8 Indica strain can make you feel relaxed and calm, while a Delta-8 sativa strain can make you feel energized and productive. Currently, there are no cannabis varieties available that produce more than 1% of Delta 8 THC by weight. This cannabinoid is formed when THC delta 9 starts to break down, with most of it being converted to CBN and small concentrations being converted to delta 7, delta 8, delta 10 THC or HHC.
Many brands offer flower trolleys, pre-rolls or vaporizers with THC Delta 8 in different variety options, such as Indica, Sativa or Hybrid. Cannabis sativa plants are thinner, taller and lighter in color than Indica plants, which tend to be dense and dark. The properties of these plants are also opposite and cause different effects on the mind and body. Cannabis indica is characterized by having shorter, bushy leaves that are wider.
It is important for consumers to know that delta-8 products with THC have not been evaluated or approved by the FDA for safe use in any context. Indica Delta 8 (THC) cannabis strains will give you a “body high”, say cannabis experts. Delta 8 Sativa combines the best of both worlds, providing invigorating mental acuity without fatigue or the risk of overload or nervousness. Delta 8 THC is an analogue of the best-known cannabinoid, Delta 9 THC, commonly known as THC.
Therefore, a Sativa Dominant Delta 8 strain means that a D8 substance was extracted from a cannabis plant that has a more frequent amount of Sativa DNA and that will withstand all the positive side effects of a Sativa strain. Manufacturers take the most popular varieties available and increase the content of Delta 8 and a new, catchy name. The FDA is aware of the growing concern surrounding delta-8 THC products that are currently sold online and in stores. Like many other cannabinoids in the cannabis plant, the ability of delta 8 THC to promote relaxation and possibly help patients with a medical condition is being studied.
CBD, a cannabinoid other than THC delta 8 derived from hemp, for example, can affect the feel of a strain. Some companies even spray the flower with D8 distillate and then coat it with an additional layer of THC delta 8 kief, producing what are commonly known as THC delta 8 moon rocks.
