Delta-8 vs Delta 9 THC.

As if it wasn’t complicated enough with Full-Spectrum CBD vs. CBD Isolate, there is now a new innovation with THC that has led to the creation of both Delta-8 and Delta-9 THC products.

What Is THC?

Delta-8 & Delta-9 THC are natural compounds found in the cannabis sativa plant, which produces more than 100 different kind of cannabinoids.

Delta-9 is generally the most abundant cannabinoid found in cannabis plants, while they usually contain only a small amount of Delta-8 THC.
