Since the 2018 Farm Bill was put into effect which legalized hemp-derived products, many cannabinoids such as delta 8, delta 10 THC, and many others have been offered to the hemp industry. Recently, a cannabinoid known as delta 11 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) has found its way into the market. It is a small concentrated, natural cannabinoid found in the cannabis Sativa plant. It’s the metabolite that circulates through our liver and gastrointestinal system after ingesting or smoking delta 9 THC. Delta 11 is known for its appetite-enhancing ability since it is the compound that is most responsible for the “munchies” effect you’ve experienced after consuming cannabis. With modern-day technology and innovation, it has been made possible to extract delta 11 from the federally legal hemp plant without the need for cannabis. 

The research on Delta-11 THC

In 1974, an investigation was conducted on the social impact of cannabis use, and this was the first professorial mention of Delta-11 THC. A couple of years later in 1990, the metabolism of this uncommon cannabinoid was thoroughly examined in a laboratory study. Since then, no further research has been announced.

What are the benefits of delta 11 THC?

This cannabinoid produces extremely similar psychoactive effects to delta 9 THC- minus the usual negative side effects which include paranoia, brain fog, lack of motivation, and many others. We have discovered that this cannabinoid can assist with the following:

  • Lack of appetite
  • Glaucoma
  • Insomnia
  • Sickness
  • Neuromuscular diseases (muscle spasms)
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Pain

Because of this, products such as the sought-after Ghost Delta 11 Disposable 2g have become extremely popular since it is both effective and legal for consumption.

*There has been no statistical research that guarantees these supposed benefits.

Is Delta 11 THC safe?

Since there has been no further research since 1990, we have no definite answer to the safety of Delta 11 THC. There is only one small change in the chemical structure when compared to other forms of THC and unfortunately, there is no research on the impact this small difference can have.
