Delta 8 THC is a powerful relaxant that can relieve stress, improve concentration and sleep patterns, reduce pain, reduce anxiety, increase appetite, and relieve nausea and vomiting. It is important for consumers to be aware that delta-8 THC products have not been evaluated or approved by the FDA for safe use in any setting. The FDA is concerned about the proliferation of products containing delta-8 THC that are marketed for therapeutic or medical uses, although they have not been approved by the FDA. The sale of unapproved products with unsubstantiated therapeutic claims is not only a violation of federal law, but may also put consumers at risk. Delta-8 THC has psychoactive and intoxicating effects, similar to delta-9 THC. The FDA is also concerned that delta-8 THC products will expose consumers to much higher levels of the substance than those found naturally in raw hemp and cannabis extracts.
