Since the 2018 Farm Bill, which made hemp legal in the United States, the CBD (Cannabidiol) market blew up. In 2019, the global cannabidiol market size was estimated at $7.1 billion, expected to hit $9.3 billion sometime in 2020, and is forecasted to reach upwards of $23.6 billion by 2025. It’s safe to say that CBD definitely hit a boom and it has yet to peak. With this legalization of hemp, Delta 8 THC has also become a very popular cannabinoid; since it is a market that is still in its infancy, there haven’t been any market forecasts released just yet.
We know very well that the Delta 8 THC market is on an upward spiral to success. However, that leaves many people wondering which route is the best and which offers more benefits.
Is Delta 8 More Beneficial Than CBD?
Although Delta 8 THC has a lot to offer, CBD provides many more medical benefits. It is our duty to our customers and viewers to be open and transparent. Therefore we provide real and accurate information to better help you during the shopping process. Though we would love to share that Delta 8 THC is the holy grail of all things hemp, we cannot. When it comes to benefits, CBD takes the cake on paper. However, one person may choose Delta 8 over CBD for the benefits that it holds. Answering the question may seem clear to some but it truly depends on who you are asking.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DELTA 8 THC AND CBD
There are many differences between Delta 8 THC and CBD. It is still unknown how many benefits Delta 8 THC has to offer due to the lack of research. However, there has been more research for CBD and its benefits are starting to emerge. In fact, fourteen percent of U.S. adults are using CBD products, and this number stems heavily from the researched benefits that it offers. However, there isn’t much research on the benefits of Delta 8 THC yet.
GENERAL COMPARISON OF THC AND CBD
- Delta 8 THC can increase your appetite.
- CBD is non-psychoactive.
- Delta 8 THC is psychoactive.
- Both THC and CBD have Indica, Sativa, and Hybrid strains.
DELTA 8 THC’S MOST NOTABLE BENEFIT
The most notable benefit of Delta 8 THC is that it is a psychoactive cannabinoid, and that is one of the most prominent factors of why one would choose Delta 8 THC over CBD. CBD will not get you high or offer any head change, but Delta 8 THC does.
Many people seek to get high for that euphoric head change. However, the cloudy – not in control feeling might be too much for some people to handle; but the fact that it can change your mood, outlook, and perception becomes attractive. It is benefits such as these that can make Delta 8 THC more beneficial to one person over another.
Methods Of Use
The way you take CBD and Delta 8 THC are almost the same. You can vape both products, take them sublingually, and are available in edible forms. However, how fast you feel the results from both products will depend on how you take it. Although they are similar in the method of use, the results are completely different. When it comes to CBD you can’t take more to feel “high”; regardless of how much you take, it won’t get you high. However, Delta 8 THC can give you a head change the more you take.
This is one of the most popular methods of use for those who are new to hemp products. The fact that they taste good and are easy to use make them one of our best sellers. You’re able to choose from Rainbow Pack Premium Delta 8 THC Gummies or CBD Gummies. These are really strong products so you want to caution how much you take. What our customers really love about them is the flavor. This of course is secondary to the way it makes them feel.
Just like CBD Cartridges, you’ll need a 510-thread battery with a built-in airflow. We don’t carry that hardware for our Delta-8 THC Cartridges or CBD Carts; however, a quick Google search will help you find a vape pen battery pen for cartridges near you. The reason why Vaping CBD or Delta 8 THC is so popular is that it has a faster absorption rate. This means you’re able to feel it a lot quicker when compared to edibles.
One of the biggest differences between the methods of use is that certain products are available for CBD only. This list includes Topicals and Hemp Flower, which Delta 8 THC doesn’t produce. Delta 8 THC is produced when you isolate the 8th bond in THC instead of the 9th. Therefore the extract is not as abundant in the Hemp flower as CBD is. The result is you’ll find CBD flower but no Delta 8 THC flower. You’ll find lotions, creams, and balms infused with CBD but not so much Delta 8 THC. The reasons vary why this happens but CBD is popular when it comes to cosmetics and lotions.
