What Is Delta-8?

Delta-8 THC is a derivative found in incredibly small percentages within the hemp plant.


The 2018 Farm Bill legalized industrial hemp and all its derivatives containing 0.3% Delta-9 THC or less, and Delta-8 THC is in this category. This form of THC is fully legal and proudly retails at Sacred Leaf Austin. Delta-8 is like other THCs, a psychoactive cannabinoid. Its high is less intense, designed to keep you alert and in control.


In fact, many users report not experiencing the all-too-familiar adverse side effects other standard Delta-9 THC delivers such as paranoia and anxiety felt from over-consumption of cannabis.

Just like other cannabis compounds that can affect your endocannabinoid system, Delta-8 has the potential to impact the mind and body’s natural rhythms.  Our sleep cycle, otherwise known as our circadian rhythm is why it can benefit your sleep experience.  So, is a cannabinoid such as Delta-8 effective for regulating sleep?  The answer is – it can be.

Delta-8 THC can help by regulating the sleeping process. Incorporating Delta-8 THC into your evening routine can make it easier to achieve a more meaningful and restful sleep.

Delta-8’s Potential Efficacy For Better Sleep

We know that CBD, or cannabidiol, has been used as a natural sleep aid for a long time.  CBD is non-psychoactive, with a calming effect, making it easier to fall – and stay – asleep.  It may even be able to significantly influence your circadian rhythm in a positive way.

We know that CBD shares a lot in common with Delta-9 THC and other cannabinoids found in hemp.  What about Delta-8?  According to theAccording the National Cancer Institute, Delta-8 THC may bind twice with our endocannabinoid receptors found in the nervous system, playing a role in calming down processes like hectic mental activity, rapid heart rate and unsteady breathing.

Delta-8 could just as easily promote rest and ease your sleep cycle.  Research on Delta-8 THC regarding its effects on sleep are expanding.  In the future there should be easier access to important research on this subject.
