New Monograph: What is Delta-8 THC?
- Pain Point: Delta-8 THC is the new cannabinoid on the block, and it’s been getting a lot of attention lately for all the wrong reasons. Despite concerns from the FDA and CDC regarding a recent spike in poison center calls, delta-8 THC is being sold in supplements as a safe alternative to delta-9 THC, the main psychoactive component of cannabis.
- Solution: Natural Medicines recently published a new monograph for delta-8 THC, and this article summarizes the most relevant information found in that monograph. One notable difference between this and other popular cannabinoids is the fact that delta-8 THC is present in only trace amounts in Cannabis, suggesting that delta-8 THC products are created synthetically. This article also provides insight into what we know thus far about the safety and psychoactive effects of delta-8 THC.
