With the increased interest in Delta-8 THC, cannabis brands have emerged to offer people more options in how they enjoy this and other alternative cannabis products. One of the leaders in this area is Delta Extrax, a company dedicated to offering lesser-known, hemp-derived cannabinoids.
That doesn’t stop at Delta-8 THC. Delta Extrax also offers products featuring Delta-10 THC, THC-O, THCP, THCV, and CBG. If you don’t yet know much about these hemp-derived products, you will soon. The people at Delta Extrax have a goal to educate people about the benefits of using hemp-derived cannabis products that use cannabinoids other than the well-known Delta-9 THC.
What Is Delta-8 THC?
For most people, Delta-9 THC is what they have known their entire lives. THC is the chemical compound in cannabis that causes the “high,” and Delta-9 is the most frequently used THC variant in cannabis products.
However, Delta-8 THC is growing in popularity. Those who use Delta-8 THC report a less intense high with none of the common side effects of Delta-9 THC, including no feelings of anxiety or paranoia. The smooth effect of Delta-8 fits between regular Delta-9 THC and CBD, which contains less than 0.03 percent THC.
As noted by Delta Extrax on its website, the National Cancer Foundation found that Delta-8 THC contains the following properties:
- Anxiolytic. Relieves anxiety.
- Neuroprotectant. Protects and regenerates the nervous system.
- Antiemetic. Prevents nausea.
- Appetite Stimulant. Promotes a healthy appetite.
- Analgesic. Relieves pain.
Given these potential effects and the smoother, less intense experience of Delta-8 THC, it’s easy to see how it has grown in popularity.
What is Delta-10 THC?
Delta Extrax uses other cannabis hemp derivatives in its products beyond Delta-8 THC. They include the following.
Delta-10 THC. Like Delta-8, Delta-10 THC is commonly derived from cannabis hemp and provides a more energizing effect.
THC-O and THCP. Compounds derived from hemp that are typically more potent than Delta-9.
THCV. A cannabinoid compound that suppresses appetite and typically does not make the user experience a high.
CBG. Unlike THC, CGB will not get you high. It is used to manage pain, nausea, inflammation and other medical conditions. It is considered the “mother cannabinoid” from which all others are derived.
These products show the wide variety of experiences available through cannabis hemp-derived products, many of them just now starting to get the attention of consumers.
What Delta Extrax Offers Consumers
Delta Extrax offers a wide range of products featuring these cutting-edge cannabis hemp derivatives. Consumers can shop for products based on categories or look at the entire product list. Products include flower, concentrates, edibles, tinctures, and cartridges. Products contain less than 0.03 percent Delta-9 THC, making them compliant with the 2018 Farm Bill that legalized hemp products nationwide.
Some of the latest products include the following.
The Zenergy Collection
These disposals feature THCV, which does not cause a high unless taken in large amounts (and even then, it is euphoric and short-lived). THCV tends to suppress appetite, so the munchies are not an issue. Also, it does not cause any of the unwanted side effects some experience with Delta-9 THC, such as anxiety and paranoia. Zenergy also contains citrus tango terpenes.
White Rhino is the latest hemp-infused Delta-8 THC flower from Delta Extrax. The name comes from the pointy bud formation made by the plant as it grows. White Rhino combines White Widow and North American indica and provides a mellow, soothing experience. You can smoke White Rhino or use it to make edibles.
The Platinum Collect disposables – Sunset Sherbet and Mai Tai – contain THCP. THCP has a longer alkyl chain than Delta-9 THC, increasing its impact by as much as 33 percent! THCP is present, in very small amounts, in some sativa strains, which may be why you experienced a high using a relatively small amount of cannabis. Sunset Sherbet offers full-body effects with “jolt of cerebral energy for those days of just needing to clear your head and relax.” Mai Tai has an uplifting effect, with some mellow properties incorporated within it, as well.
As consumers become more aware of Delta-8 THC and other “alternative” cannabis products, companies such as Delta Extrax will lead the way. For those interested in experiencing everything cannabis offers without the side effects, these products can provide what they want.
