Is Delta 8 THC the Same as CBD?

Shopping for a hemp product can feel overwhelming at first. However, the process can be made easier with a little bit of knowledge in your back pocket. At Primo Vibes, we believe a great customer experience can be made even better with education about the products we provide.

When shopping at Primo Vibes, customers may expect to see both CBD and Delta 8 THC products on our shelves. While both cannabinoid niches are great in their own way, they both have unique properties and can serve different purposes.

What is Delta 8 THC?

Delta 8 THC is one of the psychoactive cannabinoids found within the hemp plant. At the time of this writing, there are more than 100 known cannabinoids. However, the majority of them are non-psychoactive. Delta 8 THC is one of the handful of cannabinoids that produce the “high” sensation that many individuals associate with cannabis.

Delta 8 THC is just one of the THC cannabinoids known to us. Delta 9, 10, and 11 THC are also options that can be found on store shelves across the nation. However, there are distinct differences that make each THC cannabinoid unique.

According to Healthline, “Though it’s similar to delta-9 THC, it [Delta 8 THC] has a slightly different chemical structure that makes it much less potent.”

Delta 8 THC also has a variety of properties including (but not limited to);

  • Feelings of relaxation and tiredness

  • Increased appetite

  • Feelings of euphoria

Primo Vibes Delta 8 Gummies

Products that include Delta 8 THC include tinctures, edibles, and smokable hemp flower. It is common for these kinds of products to contain a Delta 8 THC isolate, but can contain other cannabinoids as well. Shoppers can review the information about individual products directly on the product packaging, educational material about the products, and the company website.

What is CBD?

CBD is on the other side of the coin. As one of the most popular cannabinoids on the hemp market, products containing this cannabinoid can be found on store shelves across the US. CBD products come in a wide variety of options for shoppers to choose from. These options include edibles, tinctures, topicals, and smokable hemp flower.

This cannabinoid also offers a wide variety of properties including (but not limited to);

  • Anti-Inflammatory

  • Calming properties

  • Sleep promoting properties

Current research has explored CBD’s ability to assist in a wide range of medical dilemmas, such as Eczema, Epilepsy, and various forms of cancer. Though most findings have been considered preliminary, they open new pathways previously unexplored.

The Difference

While CBD and Delta 8 THC can both be found within the hemp plant, they are very different from one another. Each may offer its own unique properties, but there is one they do not share that sets them both apart.

Delta 8 THC is psychoactive, meaning it produces a “high” sensation. On the other hand, CBD does not contain this property. Since CBD does not produce the same “high” sensation as Delta 8 THC, it has become a popular option for those who may not enjoy that particular aspect of Delta THC cannabinoid products or are more sensitive to cannabinoids.

However, some CBD products may contain trace amounts of Delta THC cannabinoids. Many CBD products contain full-spectrum CBD oil, meaning there are other cannabinoids, including THC cannabinoids present in the product. For those wanting a CBD only product, finding a tincture or edible that contains the phrase “CBD isolate” or “THC-free” (or a variation of thereof) is the recommended route.
