How Does the Endocannabinoid System Work With Delta 8 THC?
Dr. Joseph Rosado, MD, MBA, Medical Director, Complete Wellness Medical Centers and Panacea Alliance
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a complex network of receptors, enzymes, and molecules that plays a crucial role in regulating various physiological processes. Delta 8 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is a minor cannabinoid found in cannabis that has gained popularity due to its potential therapeutic benefits and mild euphoric effects. It is similar in structure to Delta-9 THC, the main euphoric compound in cannabis, but with some differences in its effects and legal status. Recent research suggests that Delta-8 THC interacts with the ECS in a unique way, and may have therapeutic potential for a range of conditions. This presentation will explore how the ECS works with Delta-8 THC, examine how delta 8 THC binds to the CB1 and CB2 receptors, the role of enzymes in its metabolism, the potential effects on various physiological processes and what this could mean for its use as a medicine.
