Delta 9 THC Vs Delta 8 THC: The Ultimate Guide

Tetrahydrocannabinol - Wikipedia Delta 9 THC

Delta 9 THC, commonly known as just “THC,” is the primary psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant. It’s responsible for the typical “high” associated with cannabis use. Delta-9 THC is more abundant in cannabis compared to Delta-8 THC.

delta-8-Tetrahydrocannabinol - Wikipedia

Delta 8 THC, often referred to as “Delta-8,” is a minor cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant, along with Delta 9 THC. It’s gaining popularity in the world of cannabis and hemp products due to its unique properties. Delta-8 is an isomer of Delta 9 THC, which means it has a similar chemical structure but with some subtle differences.


Key Differences:


  • Psychoactivity: Delta-9 THC is well-known for its psychoactive effects, while Delta-8 THC is generally considered to be less potent in this regard. This distinction is important for users seeking different experiences.
  • Legality: Delta-8 THC is often marketed as a legal alternative to Delta-9 THC in regions where Delta-9 THC remains illegal. However, the legality of Delta-8 varies by jurisdiction and is subject to change.
  • Availability: Delta-9 THC is naturally present in higher quantities in the cannabis plant, while Delta-8 THC is typically derived through specific extraction and conversion processes, making it less common.
  • Effects: Users often describe Delta-8 THC as providing a milder, more clear-headed high compared to Delta-9 THC, which can induce stronger euphoria and sedation.
  • Medical Potential: Some research suggests that both Delta-8 and Delta-9 THC may have potential medical benefits, such as pain relief and antiemetic properties, but further studies are needed to fully understand their therapeutic potential.

In the realm of THC, Delta 8 and Delta 9 stand apart as distinct options, each offering a unique array of effects and benefits. Whether you opt for the milder euphoria of Delta 8 or the classic intensity of Delta 9, understanding these isomers empowers you to make an educated decision that aligns with your desired cannabis experience. Remember to always comply with local laws and regulations regarding THC use.

We carry both Delta-9 THC and Delta-8 products!

Meet Amanita Muscaria 🍄

What is Amanita Muscaria?

Amanita muscaria, also known as the fly agaric, is a striking and iconic mushroom characterized by its bright red cap adorned with white spots. It is found in various parts of the world, particularly in northern regions with coniferous forests. The mushroom contains a psychoactive compound named muscimol. Despite its unique appearance and historical use in some cultures for shamanic practices, the mushroom can be toxic and should not be ingested without proper knowledge and caution.

Is Muscimol a Controlled Substance?

The Federal government of the United States does not classify either Amanita muscaria or muscimol as controlled substances. As a result, cultivation, possession, and distribution of these substances are not subject to regulation by the United States Federal Government.

However, Amanita Muscaria mushrooms are prohibited in several countries outside the U.S., including Australia, Romania, The Netherlands, and Thailand. In Australia, muscimol is categorized as a Schedule 9 drug, while hallucinogenic mushrooms in Thailand fall under Category 5 drugs.

On the other hand, these mushrooms remain legal in Sweden, Ireland, Mexico, Ukraine, and Russia, with no specific regulations governing their use or possession.

Is Amanita Muscaria A Psychedelic Mushroom?

Amanita muscaria is considered psychedelic due to the presence of psychoactive compounds in its composition. The primary psychoactive substance found in this mushroom is muscimol. When ingested, these compounds affect the central nervous system and can lead to a change in consciousness.

Can Fly Agaric Be Used For Medical Or Therapeutic Use?

Current studies are exploring the potential therapeutic applications of the Amanita Muscaria fungi variety, but so far, no substantial evidence supports these claims. However, researchers have observed that Amanita Muscaria extracts possess antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Moreover, a study in 2021 found that muscimol, a compound in the mushroom, can reduce anxiety by suppressing nervous system activity. Another study in 2014 suggested that consistent Amanita Muscaria extract intake might benefit patients with neuropathic pain. Nevertheless, the debate over whether Amanita Muscaria can be effectively used for therapeutic purposes continues, as further research is necessary to validate these claims.

Where Can I Buy Amanita Muscaria?

You can buy Clean Remedies’ Amanita Muscaria (Ibotenic Acid Free) products on!

We offer the 10mg:10mg Arnold Palmer Drink Mix, 15mg:15mg 3 Count Watermelon Gummies, 30mg:30mg 6 Count Watermelon Gummies, 60mg:60mg 12 Count Watermelon Gummies, 40mg (THC-Free) Muscimol Watermelon Fruit Tarts, and the 150mg:75mg Honey Lemon flavored Tincture.

What is THCa?

THCA stands for tetrahydrocannabinolic acid. It is a naturally occurring compound found in cannabis plants, specifically in the trichomes, which are the resin glands of the plant. THCA is the precursor to THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the primary psychoactive compound responsible for the “high” associated with cannabis use.

In its raw form, THCA does not have psychoactive effects. However, when cannabis is heated or decarboxylated (a process that involves applying heat to convert THCA into THC), it loses a carboxyl group and is transformed into THC. This conversion can occur through smoking, vaporizing, or baking the cannabis plant material.

THCA itself has shown potential therapeutic benefits, including anti-inflammatory properties, neuroprotective effects, and potential anti-cancer properties. However, more research is needed to fully understand its medicinal potential and how it interacts with the human body.

Ohio CBD Guy offers 3 strains of THCa hemp flower from Top Shelf Hemp; Green Crack (Sativa), Cherry Pie (Hybrid), and King Louis (Indica) in Pre-roll, 3.5g and 7g options! (In store only as of 5/11/23, will be on the website shortly for online ordering!)

What Kind of CBD Product is Right for You?

CBD products typically fall into three different categories; full spectrum, broad spectrum, and CBD isolate. These categories are important for the public to know due to the unfortunate fact that firms typically test for THC. Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, CBD products that are hemp derived and that contain up to 0.3% THC are allowed to be sold to the public without a medical marijuana card.  This is what makes each kind of product unique:

  • Full-spectrum CBD products contain all of the naturally occurring compounds found in the cannabis plant, including CBD, THC, other cannabinoids, and terpenes. These products can provide a more comprehensive range of potential health benefits but may also contain THC, which can cause psychoactive effects and may not be legal in some states or countries.
  • Broad-spectrum CBD products are similar to full-spectrum products in that they contain multiple cannabinoids and terpenes, but they typically have the THC removed. This makes them a good option for those who want the potential benefits of multiple compounds in the cannabis plant without any THC.
  • CBD isolate products contain only pure CBD, with all other compounds removed. These products are the most refined and typically have no flavor or aroma, making them a good choice for those who prefer a neutral taste or are sensitive to other compounds found in the plant.

It’s important to note that the effects of CBD can vary from person to person, and the best product for you will depend on your individual needs and preferences. It’s always a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new supplement regimen.

Fortunately, Ohio CBD Guy carries all three types of CBD products, be sure to check them out!

How CBD can Elevate Spring Activities!


  1. Relaxation and Stress Reduction: CBD has potential calming effects that may help reduce stress and anxiety, allowing you to fully relax and enjoy your springtime activities.
  2. Muscle Recovery and Discomfort Reduction: Springtime activities often involve physical exertion, such as hiking, biking, or gardening, which can lead to muscle soreness or discomfort. CBD may have potential anti-inflammatory properties that could help reduce inflammation and support muscle recovery, making it a valuable addition to your post-activity routine.
  3. Seasonal Allergy Relief: Springtime also brings seasonal allergies, which can put a damper on outdoor activities. CBD has potential anti-inflammatory properties that may help alleviate allergy symptoms, such as sneezing, itching, and congestion, allowing you to enjoy the outdoors more comfortably.
  4. Focus and Concentration: CBD may also help improve focus and concentration, which can enhance your performance during springtime activities that require mental clarity, such as gardening or outdoor sports. By supporting cognitive function, CBD can help you stay present and fully engaged in your activities.
  5. Overall Wellness Support: CBD has potential wellness benefits, including potential mood support, inflammation reduction, and immune system modulation. By incorporating CBD into your routine, you may support your overall well-being and vitality, helping you feel your best as you participate in springtime activities.

It’s important to note that CBD affects individuals differently, and the effects may vary depending on the dosage and individual factors. It’s recommended to start with a low dosage and consult with a healthcare professional before incorporating CBD into your routine, especially if you have any underlying health conditions or are taking medications.

Ohio CBD Forges New Partnership with Non-Profit MedicateOH

Over the next several months, MedicateOH staff will be on hand at events and in-store at announced times to assist Ohio CBD Guy in educating Ohioans about their opportunities with regards to cannabis and the state’s medical marijuana program.

Read more about the work MedicateOH does here.


About Ohio CBD Guy

Jason Friedman, owner of Ohio CBD Guy, reflects on starting the business in 2017. “My wife and I were struggling with significant stress, anxiety, and sleep issues. Additionally my wife was dealing with back, neck, and shoulder pain (likely caused by all of the stress). We were both taking prescription medications and self-medicating with alcohol and drugs. I had used marijuana since I was a young adult to help me with stress, anxiety, and depression, but as I got into my mid to late thirties I noticed it wasn’t helping as much and in some cases it was making my anxiety worse.”


In 2018, a friend introduced Friedman to hemp derived CBD. “It made such a profound and positive impact in my life that I developed a passion to spread this knowledge to anyone who would listen. My wife and I healed ourselves and no longer rely on any prescription medications and have found healing and balance in our life. I decided to start my mission to provide a resource for our community for those seeking to learn more about this safe and natural remedy.”


Ohio CBD Guy initially opened their business as a kiosk at Kenwood Towne Center in Cincinnati. The response from the community and media was overwhelming, but led to unexpected setbacks. “Three months after opening, the Ohio State Pharmacy Board lumped hemp derived CBD in with their medical marijuana program and I was labeled a criminal. I refused to let this stop me. So we immediately left the mall to open our first brick and mortar store right across the Roebling Bridge in Covington, KY where the hemp laws were progressive and favorable. Once Ohio legalized hemp in 2019 we opened our East Walnut Hills store and then our Montgomery store in 2020.”


“At Ohio CBD Guy we pride ourselves in providing the most comprehensive education, highest quality products, and the best selection in the city,” Friedman said.

What is Delta 8 THC?

Delta-8-THC is a chemical compound found within cannabis. Though the cannabinoid is only found in trace amounts, delta-8-THC can provide much-needed relief when it is isolated. When it comes to delta-8-THC’s relation to delta-9-THC, the molecular structure is only slightly different, but important.

Delta-8-THC is psychoactive, but the head high is less intense compared to delta-9-THC. Patients typically describe the high from delta-8-THC as a more mellow experience. The psychoactive effects associated with the cannabinoid do not induce anxiety. Researchers believe the high associated with delta-8-THC is more enjoyable compared to delta-9-THC. This fact could bring individuals who want to try this cannabinoid some reassurance that it will not be an intense experience.

Through research, delta-8-THC has been found to combine with CB1 receptors that are located mainly in the nervous system. This fact could explain the reason why delta-8-THC is excellent at reducing nausea and vomiting. In a study conducted in 1995, Dr. Raphael Mechoulan administered delta-8-THC to eight children battling different hematologic cancers. All children, ages ranging from three to thirteen years old, were exposed to chemotherapy and a variety of different drugs about eight months before the study. The results of the study showed that vomiting was stopped entirely for the patients.

The cannabinoid also had no known side-effects. This study shows the enormous potential delta-8-THC has for individuals who experience nausea and vomiting. Delta-8-THC has the potential to improve the quality of life for individuals trying to fight a variety of illnesses.

What Are Terpenes?

terpenes in ohio

Terpenes are compounds found in all plants. They determine what the plant smells like, tastes like, and they also are known to have therapeutic values. Cannabis being a plant, contains terpenes. Terpenes and their benefits are generating a lot of interest in the CBD world!

Below, you’ll learn the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions we get about terpenes. Specifically, we’ll address what terpenes are good for and how it may effect you. We hope this helps you as you learn more about CBD.

What Are Terpenes Good For?

There are more than 200 types of terpenes out there. Each one has it’s smell, taste, and therapeutic value. It’s important to educate yourself about terpenes if you are going to use a product that contains them.

While the FDA does approve terpenes to treat any conditions, they are known to provide benefits for pain, inflammation, stress, anxiety, sleep, infections, and more. Some examples of terpenes found in Cannabis are Myrcene, Alpha Pinene, Beta Caryophyllene, and Limonene.

Specific terpenes influence how you feel. Myrcene and Alpha Pinene, for instance, are calming terpenes. Limonene and Terpinolene, on the other hand, are more likely to help you stay alert and be creative. Caryophyllene strikes a balance between these two energy levels.

Do Terpenes Get You High?

No, terpenes by themselves will not get you high. When combined with THC, they can influence your high, but the terpenes themselves are not psychoactive. This is similar to CBD, which also won’t get you high.
