CBD vs. Delta 8 vs. Delta 9

Hemp-derived Delta 8 THC is the latest cannabinoid that has caught the attention of both veterans and novice cannabis users. Uplift CBD believes that Delta 8 THC has overtaken CBD in popularity, but it happened much quicker.



CBD won’t get you high as Delta 9 THC. CBD is non-psychoactive and won’t get you high. Many people won’t take CBD as it doesn’t give them high. There are likely just as many people who use CBD, and they are satisfied with the fact that CBD does not cause them to get high. 


Delta 8 THC

Simply put, delta8 THC is a blend of CBD and delta9 THC. Consumers report feeling Delta 8 THC after consuming CBD. This is the main difference between CBD and Delta 9 THC. These effects depend on how CBD is consumed. 


Delta 9 THC

Delta 9 THC, also known as the active cannabinoid found in marijuana, is what gets you high. Hemp also contains Delta 9 THC. Delta 9 THC has a higher psychoactive effect than Delta 8 THC. To legally possess and use Delta 9 THC, you will need a medical marijuana card in many states. Some states have legalized recreational marijuana. Uplift CBD doesn’t produce marijuana-derived products.
