Delta 8 Tetrahydrocannabinol, or delta 8 THC for short, is one of the many chemical properties found in marijuana. The Delta 8 THC compound was named after its “re-discoverer,” Raphael Mechoulam.
The name itself implies that delta 8 flower is a substance that will get you high. This is true. However, there are several factors to take into consideration:
1.) How much delta 8 THC you consume and how often determines if it will affect you positively or negatively;
2.) If smoking weed doesn’t agree with your state of mind, then just about anything could be wrong for you – this includes both good and bad psychoactive agents such as caffeine and alcohol;
3.) Smoking weed is beneficial in many cases of illness – if you are taking medication for any chronic or terminal pain, do your research first before smoking weed;
Is it wrong to smoke delta 8 THC? Although some people may not feel so great after consuming delta 8 THC, there is little evidence that suggests delta 8 THC is harmful to you.

The positive effects of delta 8 THC have only recently begun to gain widespread recognition thanks to organizations like MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies). There is no evidence that points towards negative side-effects of consuming delta 8 THC.
There are several ways to get your hands on some delta 8 THC. The simplest and least expensive way is to make it yourself. Is delta-8 Flower any good? Delta 8 THC can be made in a variety of different ways, but one of the most popular methods is Pot-brownies! Here’s how to prepare them:
1.) Get dried marijuana buds – use 10 grams for every serving;
2.) Decarboxylate the weed by baking it at 240 degrees Fahrenheit for 45 minutes;
3.) Crumble up the decarboxylated plant matter and mix it with high quality butter or oil (20 grams of drug per 100 grams of butter);
4.) Cook the mixture over low heat stirring until all water evaporates and the mixture thickens;
5.) Add salt, pepper and any other spices you like to the mixture. The delta 8 THC will bind itself to fat molecules in the butter or oil giving you a stable result. Butter is much more efficient at binding delta 8 THC because it contains almost twice as much fat per gram when compared with oil – try using olive oil for your next batch if possible.
