Delta 8 THC is an interesting part of the cannabis plant. It is found in the seeds of the plant and does not get you high. It is considered to be a legal alternative to Delta 9 THC. In fact, it is even considered to be more of a medical compound than a recreational drug.
Cannabis is now legal in many areas of the US with more states now approving the use of Cannabis for medical purposes. There are different varieties of Cannabis, some of which have higher levels of THC (delta 9 THC) which is the psychoactive ingredient in Cannabis. Delta 8 THC is seen as an excellent alternative to Delta 9 THC. Not only is it legal (in many areas), the effects are not as strong as that of Delta 9.
