The cannabis industry, and entertainment are two industries that line up together incredibly well. They go together like peanut butter with jelly. When one is “stoned” having something to do while under the influence is always ideal. Delta 8 has you covered in that department. Delta 8 THC uses the same receptors in the brain as Delta 9, yet they are very different.
Delta 8 THC as opposed to Delta 9 THC, offers the user a different high from its “big brother”. Delta 8 users report feeling euphoric, clear headed, and free from any of the paranoia that Delta 9 has been historically known to cause.
That being said, knowing what to do when using any substance is important, and Delta 8 is no different. It can offer levels of enjoyment in certain activities that prior to using D8, may have seemed mundane.
Clean. No, seriously.
Now, you might be turned off by this article seeing cleaning at the top of the list, but for me, when using Delta 8 specifically, I find it to be one of the best things I can do when using the substance.
I often find myself doing dishes that I had been putting off doing, putting away the laundry that had been waiting to be folded, along with many other tasks that in my day to day, don’t seem “fun”.
This is due to the chemical differences between Delta-8 and Delta-9 THC. Delta 8, being federally legal, and hemp derived, has been shown to have different effects, as do all forms of THC.
Delta 8 acts on the same cb1 receptor as cannabis, however due to a difference in their carbon double bond, their chemical structure, Delta 8 is approximately 50-60% as psychoactive as Delta 9. The 2018 farm bill, signed into law by former United States President Trump, made hemp derived THC such as Delta 8 and Delta 10, legal.
Game, A lot.
Online gaming is something that has grown immensely over the years, and no doubt gamers using the cannabis plant has something to do with that. Studies have shown that THC products improve in game performance due to their ability to boost focus, and memory retention.
Memory retention boils down to essentially, in a shooter for example, if you were really good with a gun in the past, cannabis can stimulate memories within your brain of you using said gun, and improve performance in that way.
With the growth of massively multiplayer online games, as well as free games such as real time battle royales: Fortnite, Apex Legends, and Call Of Duty: Warzone, gaming has reached new heights of popularity that previously did not seem possible.
Playing video games, in general, has been shown to be a great stress reliever in general. Using a substance such as Delta 8 that is designed to bring out feelings of relaxation in the user, while playing video games, works perfectly.
Get Yourself Something to Eat ( you’re going to need it)
Doordash anyone? Companies such as Doordash have grown immensely in popularity over the past couple of years. No doubt this is thanks in part to increased cannabis use, as well as more responsible adult use with that.
People are willing to pay more money to have something safely delivered as opposed to risking their life or someone else’s on the road. That is inherently a good thing.
With the COVID-19 Pandemic still going on, local businesses have been struggling to stay open, in particular, restaurants.
Sure, they have social media, but a social media following can only keep a business going for so long. Doordash has helped to keep a lot of these small businesses going, by allowing them to have their business run online. Doordash is a good way to inadvertently support small business as well, so long as you’re not ordering Taco Bell or McDonald’s.
Cooking is also a phenomenal option when using Delta 8. It makes the entire experience that much more entertaining, and the food that much more delicious. In the mood to cook? I’ve linked one of my favorite recipes for munchies, here.
Grab Your Favorite Pair of Headphones and Jam Out
One of the major negative side effects of THC in general, is increased heart rate, as well as paranoia. Delta 8 has been shown to have a lesser effect in the negative department, as well as keeping many of the positives of Delta 9. This is because Delta 8 THC uses both the CB1, and CB2 receptors to ensure relaxation.
One of the positives of THC in general, whether that be Delta 8, or 9, is music enhancement. When THC acts within our endocannabinoid system, something happens within the brain that causes melodies to sound richer, beats sharper, and lyrics more profound.
It is almost psychedelic in the way it affects music, and cannabis use in general has created urban legends behind a multitude of artists, and albums, due to the profound experiences they had listening.
There are a number of genres that lend themselves well to being under the influence, however, there are perhaps none that intentionally try to play into the fact that the users are under the influence, is modern hip hop.
Modern Hip Hop is different from that of the past in that there is a greater focus on melody. Melodic rappers such as Travis Scott, Lil Baby, and Lil Durk have all made a career off of creating fantastical melodies within the hip hop space, which lend themselves perfectly to being under the influence
If Delta 8 is about anything, it is about relieving stress, and having a good time. Do whatever you enjoy doing, whatever makes you happy, and Delta 8 can easily enhance many of those experiences, without any of the paranoia that Delta 9 can cause.
