As a national trainer, Tall Cop Jermaine Galloway receives drug-related questions from across the country that range in topics from vapes to opioids and more. He stated that in 2021, the number one drug-related question that he fielded regarded Delta-8 THC.
Galloway explained that when generally referencing the common terms of THC, such as weed or cannabis, this is referring to Delta-9 THC. As he has been teaching, Delta-9 is what most know to be weed.
This begs the question: what is Delta-8? It is a compound from the cannabis plant in which many users report getting about half the high of traditional weed.
“Users also report that the high also doesn’t last nearly as long as Delta-9 THC,” said Galloway.
