Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is a cannabinoid found in cannabis (Cannabis sativa). The psychoactive effects of cannabis are mainly due to THC. There are more than 80 cannabinoids in Cannabis sativa, but THC and cannabidiol (CBD) are the most studied. THC stands for delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol or Δ-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ-9-THC).
It is a cannabinoid molecule found in marijuana (cannabis) that has long been recognized as the main psychoactive ingredient, that is, the substance that makes people who use marijuana feel high. Delta-8 THC and delta-9 THC come from the cannabis sativa plant, which naturally produces more than 100 cannabinoids or active components. However, while the plant contains significant amounts of THC delta-9, it contains very little THC delta-8, a minor cannabinoid. In short, it is impossible to say with certainty that delta-8 THC does not give a positive result in a drug screening test, since it depends on the quality and content of the specific THC delta-8 product used, as well as the type of drug test being performed.
However, if the delta-8 THC product contains concentrations of delta-9 THC, a drug test may test positive for THC.
