The latest cannabinoid that is all set to take the cannabis industry by storm is Delta 9 THC. It is quickly becoming the most well-known and latest cannabinoid in the cannabis plant. But not many of us know what Delta 9 is and how it can change your perception while also providing benefits to us. In this blog, you will see more about Delta 9 THC and how it has the potential to rule the world.
How does THC Delta 9 work?
The endocannabinoid system, which is discovered in the human body, is composed of cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2 receptors), lipids (fats, oils, waxes, specific vitamins, hormones, and the majority of the non-protein cell membrane), and enzymes (naturally occurring proteins that sustain life) (ECS). All organisms, including invertebrates like sea urchins, sponges, mussels, and nematodes, and vertebrates like mammals, birds, reptiles, and fish, have an ECS.
The ECS’s function is to maintain homeostasis, a living organism’s mechanism to keep its environment steady and conducive to existence. Death occurs if homeostasis is not supported in place. The ECS controls our cells’ cardiovascular, neurological, and immune systems. Endocannabinoids, comparable to the cannabinoids found in plants, are produced by our bodies and help maintain everything in balance.
However, endocannabinoids desperately need support when our bodies go out of balance (due to poor food, inactivity, excessive stress, etc.). That is how the cannabinoid Delta 9 contributes to the general health of our body and mind, together with the other more than 113 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, including CBD, CBG, CBN, and CBC.
How does Delta 9 interact with your brain?
How is your brain affected by Delta 9 THC? First, we must consider how it enters our body to respond to this question. The receptors in your endocannabinoid system, also known as the ECS, are what Delta 9 attaches to when it enters your body through your skin, digestive tract, or lungs.
The ECS is a network of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors found in various parts of the nervous system, including the brain. It is in charge of controlling the heartbeat, the neurological system, and immune system operations. After binding with the receptors, Delta 9 has a unique effect on the ECS that can reduce pain, improve sleep, increase hunger, and have other therapeutic effects.
Although you can find Delta 9 in your system up to 20 hours after administration, the psychoactive side effects only last a few hours. You can also keep it in your body fat and organs for three to four weeks.
Different Ways in which Delta 9 can rule the world
Delta 9 is said to be a magical cure for many major health disorders and syndromes, which is why it is said to have the potential to lead the world shortly. Here are some of how Delta 9 can help you:
International Association for the Study of Pain jots down “Pain” as an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience that is liked to actual or potential tissue injury” It serves as a signal that something is awry, in other words. Even if it’s advantageous in that sense, we don’t want to endure it for too long. The ability of Delta 9 THC to relieve pain is one of its most well-known advantages. “After closely assessing current data on Delta 9 THC and pain treatment, the IOM [Institute of Medicine] panel found that this cannabinoid can give mild to moderate alleviation from discomfort”.
Stimulation of Appetite
Delta 9 THC’s most well-known effect, besides making you high, is that it makes individuals feel “very hungry.” Why does Delta 9 THC make you feel hungry? The drug might lower the amount of peptide tyrosine in your body; a peptide made up of two or more amino acids linked together in a chain (PYY). PYY levels might affect your appetite either way: positively or negatively. In addition, ghrelin, widely known as the hunger hormone, is increased by Delta 9 THC.
Delta 9 THC can also increase hunger by interacting with pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) neurons, a nerve cell. People with certain diseases can benefit significantly from appetite stimulation.
Helps improve focus
Some folks employ Delta 9 to concentrate their typically scattered minds. According to research that appeared in Science Daily, Delta 9 THC can be used to reduce tension and promote relaxation. Most students experience stress, which affects their ability to focus and pay attention. Consequently, the evidence points to THC and its strains’ potential to improve general concentration.
Anecdotal data suggests that students’ total GPA increased from a pitiful to a decent level when they started using Delta 9 to aid with concentration. Some students also stated that they could devote at least four hours a day to studying thanks to Delta 9 rather than partaking in alcohol or engaging in excessive socializing.
Bright future of Delta 9 THC
Despite the difficulties constraining it, Delta 9 THC continued to succeed considerably. Numerous patients vouch for it, claiming it greatly enhanced their quality of life. Many others have also used it to manage their pain, worry, and tension. Although Delta 9 THC remains prohibited at the federal level, marijuana usage for recreational purposes remains permitted in 18 states.
The DEA has also declared that it will take action to help the expanding demand for studies on marijuana and its chemical constituents. Scientists who presently can only receive legal marijuana from the University of Mississippi may find things simpler as a result of the federal agency’s decision to permit an expansion in the supply of the substance for research reasons.
The cannabis community wants Delta 9 to remain rescheduled entirely, which is what this development falls short of. But it demonstrates a readiness on the side of the DEA to recognize the significance of the drug. Additionally, the upcoming shift will significantly increase the amount of data generated, which might ultimately support the medicinal advantages of Delta 9.
You should consider using Delta 9 THC to help you increase your focus, ease stress, and enhance your appetite. See how it works after a few tries. Of course, going fully stoned is not a good idea if it is your first experience. Instead, experiment with micro-dosing to relax, concentrate, and avoid becoming distracted. That will soon take over and be the cannabinoid of the future!
