Everything You Need to Know about Delta-8
Benefits of Delta-8
The National Cancer Institute describes Delta-8, most popularly known as D-8 as THC cousin and relative. This relationship is because it possesses similar properties to THC. It also contains the ability to help you stimulate your appetite. Unlike the THC, popularly known as Delta-9, Delta-8 tends to give out a reduced psychoactive density and is preferred by marijuana users due to the mild “high” it allows for.
The benefits of Delta-8 are now clear to us with research on mice by government scientists in 1974, and the effects observed were remarkable. There was no inherent harm, and the “high” was very low with a low concentration. Here are some of the benefits of D8 from the users’ experience and several types of research.
● Relief of Pain
According to a 2018 research carried out in a preclinical study in mice, you can use THC as medicine for pain relief. We observe that the application of Delta-8 can help you reduce pain, and this effect is a result of the CB1 receptors to which the cannabinoid easily binds.
● Antiemetic Property
Reducing nausea, i.e., vomiting, has been observed to be one of the benefits of Delta-8, especially in the post-treatment of cancer patients. This nausea suppression has inclined the US government to issue a patent for the usage of Delta-8 for antiemetic purposes.
● Capable of Stimulating Appetite
Any child suffering from lack of appetite can take Delta-8, especially those who are undergoing treatments for cancer. Most Delta-8 users have reported increased appetite after the cannabinoid usage. This is why we at GalaxyCBD create our products with caution and skill, so that they will effectively improve our user’s appetite.

The earlier research of 1974 established the same trait, and this has made the cannabinoid a must-have for all cancer patients.
