Cannabis contains over 113 chemical compounds, referred to as Cannabinoids. CBD and THC are two of these compounds – cannabidiol (CBD) and delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). CBD is the second most prevalent compound found in cannabis, while THC is the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis. Both compounds effect the endocannabinoid system, but they affect different receptors in your brain. Because it affects a different receptor, CBD typically has no psychoactive affect or “high.” THC however, is the compound that is responsible for producing the hight that is associated with marijuana. While CBD is typically sourced from hemp, THC is sourced from marijuana.
CBD has been proven to have many health benefits and can be helpful for conditions including:
- irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
- inflammatory bowel syndrome (IBD)
- sleep difficulties
- movement disorders
- and more! Refer to each type of oil Korabis provides in order to see the most benefit from your treatments.
Delta-8 THC is a cannabis compound that has gained popularity due to its similarities to delta-9 THC, the main compound in marijuana that produces psychoactive effects. The similarities between the two are in both name and molecular structure – the only difference being the placement of the structures. Delta-8 has a double bond on the eighth carbon, while Delta-9 has it on the ninth. Delta-8 binds to the endocannabinoid system in a different way than Delta-9 THC, due to of the location of the bond. This is what makes Delta-8 less psychoactive than Delta-9. Delta-8 will cause similar effects to that of Delta-9 THC, but much less potent. Yes, Delta-8 THC produces a high.
Delta-8 THC is Legal in the state of Texas, and is only considered illegal in 11 states currently. Delta-8 THC is commonly sourced from hemp – not cannabis. This is what allows Delta-8 to be sold in many states where cannabis is illegal. It can be a bit confusing, because hemp is a cannabis plant that contains less than .03% Delta-9 THC. The 2018 Farm Bill legalized hemp in the united states, and defined hemp as: “All derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9-tetrohydrocannabinol concentration of not more than .03%” This is what makes Delta-8 THC legal, because it does not contain delta-9 THC.
