A lot of people who use delta 8 THC describe an uplifting feeling, including feelings of gentle euphoria, when the compounds peaks in the system. Studies have shown that it may offer mood-elevating effects, which could be useful against depression. Interestingly, people say that these mood effects do not usually come with the loss of mental clarity that is associated with delta 9 THC.
In addition to potentially boosting a person’s mood, delta 8 seems to also offer calming properties that can help a person feel more relaxed. Many people use it for stress relief, especially at the end of the day when they can sit back and chill out for a while.
Many people are surprised to hear that delta8 THC may offer stimulating effects, but the reality is that this is possible because of the way in which the cannabinoid interacts with cannabinoids in the nervous system that determine, among other things, our energy cycle. Regulatory compounds do not force specific physiological changes, but rather support the body’s natural ability to regulate itself. Therefore, if you are low on energy, delta 8 and other cannabinoids could, potentially, rebalance that function of the body to give you a boost.
Many people use delta 8 THC for sleep, because of its calming properties that can affect the entire nervous system, resulting in physiological changes ranging from slower breath to calmer thoughts. Taking delta 8 at bedtime can be particularly helpful when combined with Cannabidiol (CBD) or Cannabinol (CBN), two other hemp cannabinoids known for offering relaxing effects.
Relief from Nausea and Appetite Loss
Many people use delta 8 THC specifically for help with nausea and a loss of appetite, which often go hand in hand. Many people experience these symptoms from time to time, and they are particularly common among those who are taking certain medications, suffering from digestive ailments and women who are pregnant. Delta-8 has been studied for these effects, with promising results.
