Does Delta-8 Make You Hungry?

Delta-8 THC is a new and novel cannabinoid cultivated from all-natural hemp that has taken the world by storm because of its myriad benefits. Aside from the fact that Delta-8 is the latest cannabinoid to come to market and challenge the dominance of CBD, users love it because it offers them one of the few legal highs available anywhere. Like its close cousin, THC, Delta-8 is a psychotropic compound that gives you the ability to see into parallel dimensions. In other words, it’s a whole lot of fun.

But the high isn’t the only reason that people love Delta-8. In fact, this unique cannabinoid has several other benefits that make it one of the most talked-about products in years. From helping with rest and relaxation to more, Delta-8 THC is a wondrous new compound that we here at Diamond CBD can’t seem to keep on our shelves. Whether it’s our Delta-8 vapes, Delta-8 edibles, Delta-8 oil, or our long list of other products, users like you absolutely love it.

One question we do receive a lot is about Delta-8’s ability to make a person hungry. So we decided to explore this topic a bit further and learn more. We already know that THC gives people “the munchies,” but does its cousin, Delta-8, also work as an appetite stimulant? And if so, what are the broader implications for the compound? 

There are differing opinions on this question all over the internet, with some users claiming that Delta-8 is comparable to THC in terms of making people hungry and others saying they’re not so sure. After all, the two cannabinoids are pretty similar, though not precisely the same, so it stands to reason that your body would have many of the same responses when taking either one.

So let’s dive into the question a little bit more and see for ourselves whether or not Delta-8 THC can make you hungry. Grab a bag of chips, or a big sandwich, sit back and read ahead to find out.

A Quick Primer On Delta-8 THC

We’ve written a lot about Delta-8 over the past few months — and why not? In just a little under a year, our lineup of Delta-8 THC products has quickly become the most popular among everything we sell here at Diamond CBD. When we first introduced our Chill Plus Delta Force Squares, which contain both Delta-8 and CBD, users went absolutely crazy for the sweet-tasting gummies with a subtle high. Now that we’ve expanded our offerings, you keep grabbing them up.

We recently brought a bunch of new Delta-8 products to the Diamond CBD family, including 10X Delta-8, Delta-8 Bites, Delta-8 Bears, Shrooms, and more. These are bite-seized Delta-8 edibles, sweet-smelling Delta-8 vapes, and other potent products that put you in control of the Delta-8 THC experience. It’s like nothing you’ve ever tried before, and we’re excited to learn what you think of it all.

The reason everyone loves Delta-8 so much is because of the smooth and subtle high that’s completely legal. See, ever since Congress passed the Farm Bill a couple of years ago, hemp and all of its byproducts were made 100 percent legal. The folks in Washington finally saw the light and did the right thing, making hemp and CBD legal for consumers to purchase anywhere and everywhere. 

But they also legalized Delta-8.

Delta-8, a minor cannabinoid, can now be sold legally according to federal law when cultivated from hemp. It’s a minor miracle that this has been allowed to happen, but here we are. We believe this is a first in human history, a government allowing the people to relax and have some fun. But the thing is, the fun might not last. Because as we speak, the government is looking for ways to backtrack and ban Delta-8.

So grab some Delta-8 today, before the government changes its mind.

What Are the Benefits of Delta-8?

We all know about the high that comes from Delta-8, but what are these fantastic compounds' other benefits? Can it do all of the things that THC can do? What about CBD? Do people even take Delta-8 for reasons other than the psychotropic high (the answer to that is an astounding “yes”)?

Delta-8 THC occurs naturally in nature when Delta-9 THC ages and is exposed to oxidation. Typically, there’s not enough to make it a viable compound for human consumption — the hemp plant produces only a small amount. However, here at Diamond CBD and worldwide, innovative researchers have found ways to ramp up production. We’ve not only made Delta-8 THC viable, but we’ve also made it more fun and exciting.

And yes, it’s beneficial too. Along with a high, that’s much more subtle than that of THC, Delta-8 has several other benefits. According to early research and anecdotal experiences from our users and those found on the web, Delta-8 can help with:

  • Relaxation
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Sleep
  • Appetite
  • And more

You’ll notice that we mentioned appetite in this list because, as we found, Delta-8 THC can help to stimulate your appetite. It’s what you would typically call “having the munchies.” How does it work?

Researchers found that much like THC, Delta-8 will stimulate appetite, although most studies so far have been done with mice. In fact, as one website noted, “In 2004, researchers analyzed Delta 8-THC and its effect on appetite control. Researchers gave Delta 8-THC to mice who had recently completed a weight loss regimen. Researchers found that Delta 8-THC caused increased food consumption and improved cognitive function without the effects typically linked to cannabis.”

Should I Try Delta-8 for Hunger?

If you’re looking to stimulate your appetite for any reason, or you're just looking for a fun night with friends that includes reading the fridge, then Delta-8 might be the cannabinoid for you. As preliminary research shows us, Delta-8 THC might work as an appetite stimulant, much like its sister compound THC. Combined with its myriad other benefits, this makes Delta-8 one of the premier hemp-based compounds on the market today.

And at Diamond CBD, you can find a Delta-8 product to meet your needs. Whether you prefer vaping or edibles or something else, we have it here. Moreover, our innovative team of researchers continues to work up new ways to infuse Delta-8 into products so that you can incorporate it into your daily routine. 

But as we said, you might want to hurry up. Local politicians may decide to change their minds about Delta-8 at any minute. So grab yours while you still can.
