Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the principal element of the Marijuana plant that makes one stoned and zoned out. The THC compound is extracted from the Marijuana plant to produce medicines and oils. The initially extracted compound is called Delta 9 THC. Delta 9 THC can also be referred to as THC since it is a naturally occurring element.
Delta 8 THC is derived from Delta 9 THC after synthesis. The synthesized compound of THC is derived by running it through chemicals and acids. The debate on the benefits of Delta 8 vs. Delta 9 is ongoing. Researchers are continually conducting studies on the user satisfaction and benefits of the two types of THC.
A study conducted among Americans showed a preference for THC Delta 8 among users of the drug. Users of THC Delta 8 indicated that they felt highly relaxed and relieved of pain. Users also reported lesser side effects like distractions, paranoia, and anxiety. The researchers concluded that Delta 8 THC provides a better experience to its users with fewer adverse effects.
However, most of these researches face a downside. It is predominantly caused by their inability to garner more user samples. Further, the production and usage of THC are illegal in most countries. It is the major discouraging factor to researching or studying the effects of THC and its types. It is a pity that these studies are discouraged because THC can help treat many diseases like cancer and Leukocytosis.
Comparison – Delta 8 THC and Delta 9 THC to treat Leukocytosis
Leukocytosis is a condition in which a person experiences an exponential increase in the count of white blood cells. The body’s white blood cells are the essential components of the human immune system. They are responsible for fighting antigens entering the body. A healthy count of white blood cells indicates good health. But, an extraordinary increase in the number of white blood cells can be troublesome.
The increase in white blood cells can result from infections, burns, or inflammations. When the count exceeds 11,000 in a microliter of a blood sample, the condition can be termed Leukocytosis. Conditions like thyroid, certain types of blood cancers, and immune system disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis can also lead to Leukocytosis. In such cases, Leukocytosis can be treated only by undergoing the appropriate treatments for the significant disease. However, Leukocytosis can also be treated using prescription drugs like THC.
THC has multiple uses in the pharma industry. THC is used to treat Leukocytosis as it can reduce the count of white blood cells. By decreasing the immune system’s response to inflammations, THC reduces the count of white blood cells. By treating inflammations and infections in the body, the count of white blood cells can be kept in check. By controlling our bodies’ inflammatory response, one can significantly reduce the risk of developing Leukocytosis.
On a psychological level, prolonged exposure to stressful situations and traumatic circumstances can increase the possibility of developing the condition of Leukocytosis. Feeling depressed and anxious can increase the count of white blood cells in the body. THC, a psychoactive agent, can significantly reduce the feeling of anxiety and stress among humans.
THC is prescribed as an additional drug to treat various diseases that cause severe pain and stress to patients. Further, as discussed already, Leukocytosis can occur as a side effect of certain other illnesses which can cause pain. Therefore, THC treats the condition of Leukocytosis in various ways by addressing the different root causes of the condition.
We now know that the condition of Leukocytosis can be treated using THC. One can also reduce the risks of developing Leukocytosis by consuming THC. The most pertinent question is which type of THC is more effective against Leukocytosis. As discussed before, the studies on the benefits of Delta 8 and Delta 9 are ongoing. The responses are varied to a high degree, and there are no specific results that suggest that either of the THC types (Delta 8 and Delta 9) over-performs against the other.
However, based on the current research results, one can arrive at the following conclusion. Delta 8 THC is a derived compound from Delta 9 THC. Due to this derivation process, the positive effects of Delta 8 THC are more on the human body when compared to Delta 9 THC. Delta 8 THC invokes a more active response to stress and anxiety than Delta 9 THC. Delta 8 THC also has lesser side effects when compared to Delta 9 THC. The properties of Delta 8 THC are more refined and active than the properties of the element it is derived from. The derivation process fine-tunes the properties of the substance and enhances its efficiency. As a result, Delta 8 THC invokes a more active response to stress and anxiety than Delta 9 THC.
Other Positives Of Delta 8 vs. Delta 9
During the derivation process of Delta 8 THC, many additional elements of THC contained in the initial plant extracts are removed. Therefore, one can avoid many side effects of consuming the substance on patients and other users. Delta 8 THC also has lesser side effects when compared to Delta 9 THC.
Consumption of Delta 8 THC reduces the intoxicated feeling that usually accompanies THC consumption. It would suggest that you will be able to concentrate on your work better. You will also be able to avoid the risks of addiction to THC components. Under present circumstances, one can consider Delta 8 THC to be the better treatment drug for Leukocytosis.
Lastly, the scientific proof for differences between Delta 8 THC and Delta 9 THC usage is yet to be derived. It can only be achieved by an increased number of studies and scientific and consumer surveys. The Government and health safety officers must take the initiative to conduct such research shortly. In that case, diseases like Leukocytosis can find an easy and efficient cure, which can benefit the human race.
