Delta 8 vs. CBD

Delta 8 VS. CBD 

~When it comes to the comparison of Delta-8 and CBD, the differences between the two are a bit more balanced than the similarities Delta-8 and Delta-9 have. This is because CBD is chemically much different from Delta-8 THC. For instance, Delta-8 is a psychoactive cannabinoid, and CBD is not. 

Here is a brief comparison between the two to show the differences between them.

Delta-8

  •  Psychoactive

  • High probability of failing a drug test

  • Found in low concentrations

  • Used medicinally and recreationally

  • Binds CB1 receptors and relation to CB2 receptors 

CBD

  • Non-psychoactive

  • Low probability of failing  a drug test

  • Found in high concentrations

  • Commonly used medicinally

  • Binds to CB1 receptors

Psychoactive Potential:

~The bottom line is that Delta-8 will get you high, although less high than traditional THC, while CBD and all other hemp derivatives will not. If you wish to avoid psychoactive effects, CBD is the way to go.
