As one of the most researched cannabinoids on the planet, Delta-8 has been the subject of many studies, and has been circulating the global community for many years. While you may already be familiar with the health benefits of the Hemp seed, we thought we would highlight some of the benefits that Delta-8 has been found to offer those who participated in the global research being conducted. 

1. Lowered anxiety

Many who use Delta-8 can attest to reductions in feelings of anxiety, accompanied by a wave of relaxation which washes over them. This is due to the anxiolytic effects of Delta-8 that result from it partially binding to the CB1 receptors throughout the body, as well as some of the CB2 receptors that researchers have observed. Through binding, it has been found to convince the body to better regulate pain and anxiety. 

2. Reducing nausea

Thanks to its antiemetic effects, Delta-8 THC has been found by many to play a large role in the reduction of nausea. In fact, a study published to the National Center for Biotechnology Information found that Delta-8 was able to eliminate nausea while demonstrating no negative side effects for those being studied. The children undergoing chemotherapy for their cancer saw a 100% success rate in reducing their nausea throughout the 480 case treatments. 

3. Brain health through neuroprotective properties

The continued clarity is not a mistake. Researchers found and documented that tetrahydrocannabinols may activate specific transmitter receptors which indirectly modulate the activity of the cholinergic neurons in the septal-hippocampal pathway. Cholinergic neurons are nerve cells that provide acetylcholine to the cerebral cortex, and promote cortical activation during both wakefulness and REM sleep. 

Long story short, Delta-8 has had research tying it to the activation and regulation of neurotransmitters responsible for memory, cognition, neuroplasticity, and even arousal. All important elements in healthy brain activity and leading a healthy life. 

4. Pain reduction

While pain can take many different forms, and be caused by many different causes within the body, research has found that Delta-8 has demonstrated an ability to help in the reduction of pain in those studied. This is due to the analgesic properties which have been described as being especially helpful for those experiencing neuropathic and inflammatory pain. 

5. The Feel

One of the biggest questions around Delta-8 THC and products that feature it is the feeling it gives you. While everyone is different and their experiences may reflect that, many have expressed that Delta-8 tends to provide a more mellow, relaxing high that puts them in a calm state. They often describe the feeling by one of the signature effects of Delta-8, which is a feeling of contentment and chill relaxation washing over them, while still feeling clear-headed and able to think. 

Those using Delta-8 products have also expressed feelings of intense relaxation without feeling lazy. In fact, Delta-8 products have been found to increase energy levels and focus in many who have been studied, without making their heart race or triggering any symptoms of anxiety.
