DELTA 8 EDIBLES IN FRANCE?
Delta 8 is a relatively new cannabinoid to the cannabis market. Although Delta 8 has been around since the 1970's, it was not pursued or investigated for many years after it's discovery. Therefore, we are only now just beginning to learn about the personality of this wonderous compound.
We are more familiar with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) that is found in cannabis. THC is the psychoactive component that gives a mind-altering state. Although, it is used widely for it's medicinal benefits, and can enhance health and well-being. There is an abundance of information written and online about THC, and the findings are all that it is worthy of, good and not so good. However, much depends on the user of THC. Used correctly and moderately, it is an invaluable supplement for those seeking pain relief or maybe efforts to calm the mind.
The original prohibition of THC deemed it illegal because it is derived from the cannabis plant, and because it affects cognitive function. It has been viewed as an addictive drug in a negative light because over-use can promote conditions such as paranoia, or even depression.
However, the negative aspects of THC far out-weigh the positives. This amazing cannabinoid is known to alleviate many health conditions, and it is also a top pain reliever.
Health conditions such as epilepsy, hepatitis C, post traumatic stress disorder, cancer, Crohn's disease and Alzheimer's, are just some of the physical and mental ailments that can be treated successfully with THC.
THC is cultivated globally for medicinal use. Research and studies are ongoing as more information is still being revealed about this versatile cannabinoid.
Along has come Delta 8, it's like the new kid on the block. Not a great deal is known about this compound, but what is clear is that it is also beneficial to health and well-being.
Delta 8 is derived from hemp and is currently legal according to the 2018 Farm Bill.
It has many health benefits, just like Delta 9, and is also psychoactive. However, the level of psycho activity is different in both cannabinoids. Delta 8 is a much milder, subdued psychoactive experience. In fact, one of the main highlights of Delta 8 is that it improves cognitive behaviour. Advocators of Delta 8 report that it gives an alertness and clarity not experienced with Delta 9. It sort of sits in between THC and CBD.

Ingesting Delta 8 is a much slower process in realising the effects than say vaping or using the oil. Depending on the active ingredients in the edible, it can take between 30 to 60 minutes to take effect. Those who do not smoke prefer edibles as a way to get the cannabinoids into the system. After all, many people who use flower often mix it with harmful tobacco. Edibles not only cut out the need for tobacco obviously, but they are an enjoyable treat.
