Delta-8 THC from OilWell CBD and Delta-8 THC of Houston, Texas!

Delta-8 THC from OilWell CBD and Delta-8 THC of Houston, Texas!

Due to its lower level of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and mild euphoria, Delta-8 THC is gaining popularity across the country. Though its chemical structure is similar to that of Delta-9 THC, the main substance responsible for the euphoria with marijuana, its effects are milder and lead to fewer side effects like anxiety, paranoia, or drowsiness.

With its milder euphoric effects, Delta-8 THC holds incredible promise for therapeutic uses. Cannabis innovators rose to the challenge, realizing how beneficial this development in cannabis science can be. 

That’s why at OilWell CBD, we’re proud to offer a full line of Delta-8 THC products to all of our online and in-store shoppers, wholesalers, and customers looking for private-label products.

What is Delta-8 THC?

Delta-8 THC is a psychoactive substance found in marijuana and hemp, two varieties of the Cannabis sativa plant. One of over 100 cannabinoids produced by the plant, Delta-8 isn’t found in significant concentrations, so most concentrated Delta-8 THC is manufactured from hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD).

One of the factors behind its popularity is that Delta-8 is legal in most states. Unlike strictly regulated THC, Delta-8 is extracted from hemp-derived CBD, which is legal to farm in the US. Much of this is because of the Agriculture and Nutrition Improvement Act of 2018, which recognizes the low THC levels of hemp and removed it from the list of controlled substances.

Delta-8 isn’t expressly mentioned in the federal farm bill, however, creating a legal loophole to market and sell products.

Delta-8 Benefits for Mental Health Conditions

Like its more-potent counterpart, Delta-9, Delta-8 may have potential health benefits. For people looking to avoid the intense euphoria of Delta-9, Delta-8 may serve as a better option with fewer side effects. That’s why at OilWell CBD, we strive to provide the highest-quality, hemp-derived Delta-8 THC products to serve your therapeutic needs.

Neurodegenerative Diseases

One of its most notable benefits is possible neuroprotective properties for neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Current research suggests that Delta-8 possesses neuroprotective properties that can inhibit the release of adenylyl cyclase and increase the levels of choline and acetylcholine. Choline is a precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which acts as a messenger between nerves and improves memory, cognitive function, and muscle movement and coordination.

Studies suggest that Delta-8 boosts neurogenesis, or the process by which new neurons are formed in the brain, by stimulating the cannabinoid system. This can improve cognitive function and enhance focus.

Anxiety

At high doses, THC can cause anxiety and paranoia. Delta-8 has lower concentrations of THC and produces a milder euphoria, and potentially less anxiety and paranoia. In addition, according to research from the National Cancer Institute, Delta-8 has anxiolytic effects that promote relaxation without negatively affecting anxiety, making it a good choice for people looking for the soothing effects of THC without anxious feelings.

Depression and PTSD

For depression, Delta-8 works with the cannabinoid receptors within the endocannabinoid system. It also provides a euphoric feeling, which can lift the spirits of someone suffering from depression.

The mood effects of Delta-8 extend beyond depression as well. Research on animal subjects indicates that CBD may have a beneficial effect on post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), due to its effects on the endocannabinoid system. Several small studies indicate that patients with PTSD experience milder symptoms with THC use, and Delta-8 has fewer reports of paranoia and anxiety. Additional clinical investigation into human subjects with CBD and Delta-8 specifically is necessary.

Eating Disorders

Like Delta-9, Delta-8 can be useful in treating eating disorders like anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating. Some studies suggest that Delta-8 THC is more effective than Delta-9 at boosting appetite, while others indicate Delta-8 may not boost appetite as effectively as Delta-9. This discrepancy may be due to self-reported symptoms from study subjects. Still, the appetite stimulant effects of Delta-8, even if less than Delta-9, may be beneficial as a therapy with less-potent psychoactive effects and side effects.

Schizophrenia

Despite its possible mental health benefits, Delta-8 may not be suitable for therapeutic use for all mental health conditions. Research indicates that cannabis use may trigger the onset of schizophrenia and may exacerbate the psychotic symptoms and adverse psychosocial functioning. Research has been conducted on Delta-9 effects on schizophrenia, however, and not Delta-8 specifically. Also, CBD may have therapeutic potential for the treatment of psychosis following cannabis use, so further research into the specific effects of Delta-8 and schizophrenia is needed.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

Data obtained from animal studies suggests the endocannabinoid system is involved in obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and OCD-like behavior. Cannabinoids may have beneficial effects for OCD patients, due to the stimulation of the endocannabinoid system. Furthermore, the contribution of THC is more effective than singular treatments, indicating that Delta-8 may have therapeutic use for OCD.

Autism-Spectrum Disorder

Few clinical studies have been conducted to investigate the effects of THC on autism-spectrum disorder, but those that have showed a marked improvement in symptom severity with the use of THC. Researchers suggest that THC should be a supplemental therapy and not a replacement for conventional therapy, and more research is needed to determine the effects of THC and cannabinoids on autism-spectrum disorders.

Delta-8 Benefits for Physical Conditions

One of cannabis’s earliest uses was for physical ailments like chronic pain and the symptoms and side effects of cancer and its treatments. As one of the friendliest and easiest forms to enjoy, Delta-8 THC can provide relief for debilitating physical conditions. 

That’s why at OilWell, we work with labs to provide the top Delta-8 THC products to provide you with therapeutic support and relief according to your needs.

Cancer

One of the most prominent therapeutic uses for cannabis has been for cancer symptoms and treatment side effects, particularly with nausea and inappetence. Limited research indicates that Delta-8 may be effective at relieving the side effects of cancer treatment and may be better for nausea and appetite stimulation than other cannabinoids. More research is needed, however.

Skin Ailments

The benefits of CBD for skin ailments have been well-documented, especially for its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. Delta-8 research indicates it may be effective for many skin conditions, including eczema, psoriasis, acne, and toxic rashes from plants like poison ivy and poison oak.

Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a disorder in which nerve cell activity is disturbed, causing seizures. In animal studies, Delta-8 reduced the frequency of seizures initially. Over time, however, a tolerance to Delta-8 was seen and seizure activity continued. More research is needed to demonstrate the effects of different Delta-8 protocols on epileptic patients.

Chronic Pain

Cannabis has been widely used as therapy for chronic pain and associated conditions. As a result, a Pain Management Committee formed by the NFL and NFL Players Association sought research into the effects of CBD on pain management as an alternative to opioids.

Though clinical studies are limited, the anecdotal evidence of its pain-relieving properties are considerable. Some of the effects of THC are likely to inhibit athletic performance in some people, however, such as increased appetite and slowed reaction times.

This committee is investigating the effects of over 140 cannabinoids, including Delta-8. In isolated studies, Delta-8 offers a mild euphoria that can relieve pain without impairing memory or affecting energy levels, which may make it a viable option for pain relief in athletes.

Delta-8 and Delta-9: What’s the Difference and Which One is Best for Me?

As mentioned, Delta-8 is a less-potent form of THC that delivers many of the benefits of Delta-9 THC without an intense high or related side effects like anxiety and paranoia.

Delta-9 is a major cannabinoid that occurs naturally in the cannabis plant and the psychoactive ingredient. Delta-8 also occurs naturally in cannabis, but it’s considered a cannabinoid and only present in small quantities.

Because of its concentration, Delta-9 is easier and cheaper to extract from the plant. Delta-8 requires more effort to extract naturally, leading many labs to produce it synthetically using solvents. This is the safest and most natural way to produce Delta-8 and ensures the highest quality.

After the conversion process, Delta-8 undergoes a filtration and distillation process to create a pure THC end product.

Delta-9 is still illegal in many states, whereas Delta-8 is manufactured from hemp-derived cannabis that’s protected by the federal farm act and legal in most of the US. It falls within a legal gray area, however, and isn’t regulated like other products.

The bill legalized THC in all its forms if it’s derived from hemp and contains no more than 0.3 percent Delta-9 THC. 

Both Delta-8 and Delta-9 THC are manufactured into similar products, including oils, tinctures, capsules, topicals, vaping products, edibles, and joints. Delta-9 is older and heavily regulated, however, whereas Delta-8 is new and has fewer regulations for products.

Delta-8 gained a lot of popularity recently, so products have exploded on the market. Without regulation, it’s difficult to gauge the quality and safety of each brand or product, especially when it comes to THC concentration, so it’s vital to purchase Delta-8 products from transparent and reputable companies, such as OilWell CBD.

In addition, the research on the use of Delta-8 is limited and the effects can vary according to the concentration and type of product. Still, anecdotal evidence suggests that Delta-8 THC may be equally effective for the purposes of cannabis use with fewer adverse or unpleasant side effects.

More research is needed to systematically verify the patterns reported by study participants to develop a knowledge base, treatment protocols, and dosage information for Delta-8 compared to Delta-9.
