Although Delta-8 and THC are both produced from cannabis, they are made in very different ways. While the active ingredient in Delta-9 thc is delta 9 tetrahydrocannabinol, THC is manufactured with oil extracts from the hemp plant. Both delta 9 and THC are found in marijuana, which is why they are often confused with one another.

Although marijuana is popular, it does not mean that other pharmaceutical grade pharmaceuticals are not available for use; in fact, many pharmaceutical companies are currently researching new cannabis pharmaceuticals that may become available at the federal level in the near future.
