The midday puff break is looking a lot different nowadays than it did 20 years ago. In most cases that puff you’re toking from isn’t from a tightly rolled cigarette. It’s probably some sort of futuristic device Elon Musk could have designed to pair perfectly with the Tesla Truck.

The device is powered by a nanobattery. The smoke is odorless, almost elusive if you don’t see it inhaled or exhaled first hand. It’s contents actually contain medicinal properties that heal

This is the future of CBD, and the future of the midday puff break. And yes, it is available right here on earth, in the form of Delta 8 THC. Let's explain.

What in the Heck is Delta 8 THC? Is it Cannabis? Is it CBD?

Most of us know about the most famous cannabinoid, THC, and what it does: it gets us “high”, it can make us uncontrollably giggly, it puts us to sleep, enhances pleasure zones in the brain, and much more.

As the world catches up to CBD, the compound in cannabis that doesn't get us high, extraction labs are deepening their research into plant chemistry and lesser-known cannabinoids and then infusing them into different products.

The growing popularity of CBD really has to do with the research into its lesser known cannabinoids. Cannabinoids like Delta 8.

That’s where Delta 8 THC comes in.

Today, cannabis is available in various forms. In the yesteryears, people would shy away from even discussing the cannabis plant but now, because of a better understanding of CBD and an increased legalization for THC products, it’s all over the place. Gone are the days when this plant would be famous in the news for all the wrong reasons because today it stands concrete with a plethora of proven health benefits in its support. Now, cannabis plants have a strong role to play in the health industry.

Delta 8 THC Provides Relief From Severe Pain

Not to forget, there are thousands of chemical compounds in the cannabis plant. All of them are acknowledged as cannabinoids.

Despite much awareness, mental health remains highly stigmatized. In fact, not many people in their own right people are aware that they're depressed and need help.

People who have tried cannabis in the past have claimed that this plant is the perfect medicine for the treatment of anxiety and several other mental health issues. This is why cannabis can keep people calm and treat anxiety easily.
