Some research also suggests that Delta-8 THC could help people produce Acetylcholine, which is a neurotransmitter. This neurotransmitter is responsible for memory, cognition, neuroplasticity, and even arousal. That’s a lot of benefits of Delta-8 THC, and it appears to have close to or zero negative side effects.
In 2004, researchers analyzed Delta-8’s effect on appetite control. They concluded with the trial, noting that even low doses of Delta-8 stimulated an increase in food intake.
We know based on the 1995 study that Delta-8 appears to have no negative side effects while eliminating nausea. The children undergoing chemotherapy for their cancer saw a 100% success rate in reducing their nausea over 480 treatments in total.
Everyone experiences pain differently, and at different degrees, but researchers have observed Delta-8’s ability to help relieve some of that pain. Having analgesic properties means it can relieve pain to some degree.
Particularly, those with neuropathic and inflammatory pain may benefit the most, but those with other types of pain may benefit, too.
As we mentioned earlier, Delta-8 binds to the CB1 receptors throughout the body. In fact, some researchers have observed it connecting to the CB2 receptors, too. Its ability to bind is what helps the cannabinoid convince the body to better regulate pain and anxiety.
The anxiolytic properties it produces helps to relieve symptoms of anxiety and allow a wave of relaxation to wash over you.
