Can D9 THC, a compound found in hemp, give people relief from both mental and physical health conditions? When it comes to chronic pain, post traumatic stress and anxiety disorders, it might surprise you.
THC stands for delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol or Δ-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ-9-THC). It is a cannabinoid molecule in the cannabis plant. It is the main substance in cannabis that makes you feel high, but it’s a lot more versatile than that.
D9 THC is definitely the most well-known, well-studied cannabinoid, although it is just one of more than 400 different active materials that can be found in the cannabis plant.
THC molecules function by attaching themselves to the body’s natural cannabinoid reception areas which are found throughout the brain and nervous system. THC can be detected in the body much longer than most other drug compounds (up to 20 hours after ingestion). The intoxicating effects of THC may only last for minutes to a few hours depending on your tolerance, but it stays in the body much longer than most other drug compounds because of the way the human body is made. It comes with THC endocannabinoid receptors. Pretty Nyce, huh?
Peer-reviewed, US government-funded scientific studies performed using delta 9 THC to relieve pain show how taking the cannabinoid can effectively treat chronic pain, especially when you eat edibles like gummies.
When used in moderation, other benefits include:
- Antihistamine Effects
- Chronic Pain And Migraines
- Nausea Relief
- Relief from Symptoms Associated With PTSD
- Fights Infections
- Keeps You Feeling Great.
- When Vaporized or Eaten, It May Improve Your Lung Health
As long as any hemp-derived product contains less than 0.3% delta 9 THC by dry weight volume it can be bought, sold and consumed as a hemp product and not a marijuana product.
