Cannabis, while growing rapidly in popularity, is still quite a new phenomenon in the market. Despite the cannabis industry being worth many billions of dollars, many people still do not know about it, or are yet to try it for various reasons. That said, with time, this beautiful product will see increased demand and become more mainstream.
Part of the problem is the way cannabis is viewed. Many people see it only as it is depicted in popular media: as a psychoactive drug with devastating consequences on the user and their loved ones. However, that is a skewed view of reality. Cannabis is more than just a drug. It is a complex collection of hundreds of compounds, many of which have almost miraculous benefits for the body. What’s more, new benefits are being discovered every day.
The dominant chemicals in cannabis are tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, and cannabidiol, or CBD. That said, these represent only the tip of the iceberg. There are many more compounds in cannabis. Collectively, the most important compounds are known as cannabinoids, and each of these comes with its own benefits. CBD, for example, is known to alleviate anxiety, relieve stress, and even help manage depression. THC, on the other hand, while being similar to CBD in its molecular structure, bonds with different receptors in the body and causes what we have come to recognize as the ‘high’ one gets from cannabis.
That said, what many people know simply as THC is actually a group of compounds. All of these compounds have the exact same number and type of atoms in their molecular structure. However, the way the atoms are arranged changes subtly from one variant to the other, sometimes leading to entirely different effects. Such compounds, where the molecular structure can be different despite the composition being the same, are known as isomers.
The THC most popularly depicted, and the one we actually mean when we think of the high offered by THC, is delta 9 THC, so named because there is a double bond on the 9th carbon atom in the molecular chain. Another variant is delta 8 THC, where the double bond is on the 8th carbon atom in the chain. Delta 8 THC and delta 9 THC are isomers, and while they are both psychoactive, delta 8 THC delivers a less potent high.
The greatest advantage of delta 8 THC is that it relieves pain, relaxes, calms, and brings about euphoria – virtually all the good parts of delta 9 THC, but it does not cause lethargy or paranoia because its high isn’t that potent.
That’s why delta 8 is so popular. In fact, there are many ways to take it, including vape cartridges, edibles, oils, and tinctures. In this article, we will talk about tinctures. But just before you go out and buy the Fresh Bros D8 Tincture 1000mg, let’s talk a little more about the different types of tinctures and their uses.
Types of delta 8 tinctures

There are many, to say the least. While a lot of the limelight has been on CBD and THC, delta 8 is rapidly gaining traction, and lots of research is being done to discover its slew of benefits. For example, one study showed that delta 8 THC improved cognitive function in lab mice while increasing their appetites. This was true even when it was taken in low doses. The side effects were also found to be negligible. There have also been studies where use of delta 8 THC reduced vomiting in children with cancer.
