Welcome to homework assignment CCC 1.5 of the Core Cannabis Course from Higher Learning LV. This assignment teaches students about delta-8 THC, what some wellness professionals are calling weed lite. Delta-8 shares most of the characteristics of delta-9 THC, but with a decreased potency that is—according to many anecdotal reports and limited scientific research—50-75 percent that of delta-9.

What is Delta-8 THC?
Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is what scientists call an isomer to delta-9 THC. The two molecules are very similar in chemical structure and the efficacy that results from their consumption. Both deliver psychoactivity to consumers, with delta-8 yielding roughly 50-75 percent of the potency of its chemical cousin delta-9 THC.
