The fourth most studied cannabis constituent, delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol, is not new to your cannabis circle at all. It’s finally getting that second chance for the first time in history, although strangely it is still garnering some new respect. The big question you may be wondering yourself is pretty self-explained: what does delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol make people feel like? Here are some of their many advantages and disadvantages to help you decide whether this plant should become a part of your own medicine cabinet:
The primary benefit of delta 8 gummies is an increase in bodily relaxation. Delta-8 THC is a powerful phyto-nutrient with a wide range of medical and therapeutic benefits. In small amounts, it can act as a natural mood stabilizer and can be used as a treatment for anxiety and other psychological symptoms. For people who suffer from chronic or severe insomnia, the effects of Delta-8 THC can make all the difference in the world.
Perhaps the most common side effect associated with cannabis is the infamous “crash diet.” This phenomenon refers to the short term, intense and unpleasant pain that some people experience when they try to lose weight. It can last for days, or even weeks and is often caused by an overdose of another strong phyto-carboline called serotonin. People who take delta-8 thc are particularly prone to this condition because of the plant’s ability to reduce both serotonin and appetite. Many times a patient will consume more food than he feels comfortable with, which leads to sudden, but seemingly harmless, weight loss.
A second advantage of Delta-8 THC is the reduction in energy levels that it provides. This phenomenon has been linked to chronic fatigue syndrome. Some patients taking high dosages of this herb report feeling like they have not moved in years! Many health practitioners believe that lower doses of this plant have helped reduce the severity and frequency of chronic fatigue.
In patients diagnosed with schizophrenia, many times the patient also suffers from anxiety, psychosis and depression. Interestingly enough, many of these conditions are worsened by the use of cannabis. Delta-8 THC has been found to alleviate these conditions while reducing psychosis and anxiety. The decrease in energy levels that is seen in patients taking Delta-8 THC may explain why this herb has been shown to be effective in combating the symptoms of schizophrenia. Lower dosages of Delta-8 THC are also recommended for patients with seasonal affective disorder (SAD) because it has been found to alleviate symptoms during the winter months.
Medical research has shown that Delta-8 THC has strong antioxidant properties. It may help prevent cancer development and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Preliminary studies also suggest that Delta-8 THC may be useful in the treatment of depression. However, it is not known if it is an effective treatment for depression and other anxiety related disorders. Therefore, it is not recommended for patients with anxiety disorders unless it is prescribed by a qualified professional.
