Delta-8 THC can be consumed in a variety of ways and gummies are one of the most popular in the list. Delta-8 gummies come in a variety of flavours and is one of the easiest and most effective ways to ingest Delta-8 THC.
What are the potential benefits of Delta-8 gummies?
Delta 8 THC has been shown in studies to lower anxiety, relax the body's stress response, boost mood and motivation, boost appetite, and in many cases provide pain relief.
• Anti-nauseant properties
The anti-nausea properties of Delta-8-THC were described in a 1995 study published in the journal "Life Sciences. "The study followed eight juvenile cancer patients for a year and discovered that they did not vomit after eating Delta-8-THC before and after their cancer treatment. The study discovered that Delta-8 THC almost completely stopped the nausea caused by chemotherapy.
• Could Stimulate Appetite
Several studies have proven the appetite stimulating properties of Delta-8 THC. When researchers gave mice a low dose of Delta-8-THC over 50 days, the results showed a 22 percent increase in food intake compared to controls, according to research published in the 2004 edition of ‘Pharmacology, Biochemistry, and Behavior.' When compared to delta-9-THC, delta-8-THC boosted food consumption considerably, according to the study. While cannabis products are generally known to increase appetite, Delta-8 THC unlike other cannabis products, is found to have no side effects.
• Anxiety reducing potential
Delta-8-THC, like delta-9-THC, has potential anxiety-relieving properties, according to the US National Library of Medicine. Delta-8-THC ingestion helps relax and calm the mind, without the anxiety that users sometimes experience when consuming cannabis.
Delta-8 THC binds with CB1 and CB2 receptors in the body. The cannabinoid's capacity to bind is what allows it to persuade the body to better manage pain and anxiety.
• Anti-inflammatory properties
Delta-8 THC has strong analgesic properties, like other cannabis products. These properties can potentially help in providing relief from pain and inflammation. Delta-8 THC is found to be particularly effective in pain relief in the gastrointestinal tract.
