What is Delta-8 THC?
Cannabis contains roughly 80 cannabinoids, with the one that gets most attention is definitely delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC), commonly just known as THC. Responsible for the psychoactive effect of the plant and found in higher amounts than any other cannabinoid, THC is the undisputed star of the cannabis industry – except for maybe its antagonist CBD – but it’s not the plant’s only compound identified by the acronym THC.
Delta-9- tetrahydrocannabinol is oxidised into an isomer known as delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ8-THC), an ageing process that results in two analogue phytocannabinoids with very similar chemical structural formulae. The only difference is in the position of their double bond, which is expressed as “delta” in the name of the substance.
So while both delta-8-THC and delta-9-THC contain a double bond, this is found at a different chain position which is expressed respectively as “8” and “9” – delta-8-THC’s double bond is found at the eighth carbon atom in the chain and delta-9-THC’s one carbon atom later. It is thanks to these molecular similarities that delta-8-THC can provide remarkable therapeutic effects with substantially lower psychoactive potency than its relative delta-9-THC.
History & Uses of Delta-8 THC:
Among the above uses, delta-8-THC has proven particularly effective at reducing nausea and stimulating the appetite, two applications that have already been patented in the U.S. As a result, the cannabinoid could be of great help to patients undergoing cancer treatment, who often suffer from nausea. Moreover, Delta-8-THC has also been found to be particularly suitable for children.
Aware of its lower psychoactivity, Dr Raphael Mechoulam carried out a study in 1995 in collaboration with the Shaare Zedek Medical Center and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem where delta-8-THC was administered to eight children aged from 3 to 13 with various hematologic cancers. These children had been treated with chemotherapy for eight months prior to treatment with delta-8-THC, which completely eliminated vomiting and reduced side effects to negligible levels.
The Israeli researchers also found that they could use high doses of delta-8-THC to increase its antiemetic effect on the children without triggering any of the psychoactivity associated to delta-9-THC. Interestingly, why adults tend to experience mild psychoactive effects when administered with delta-8-THC, the children of the study seemed immune to this particular effect.
