You can install multiple versions of ghc with the haskell platform — just procure the one for the appropriate version of GHC and install it. Swapping between versions can be done with the activate-hs script that is installed for you.

That said, there is also a ghc-8.0 branch of ghcjs that should work with 8.0.1

Up until now I've been using Stack for GHC work, and it seems to take care of having the right version of GHC.

Now I'm going to use GHCJS, and I need to have a system GHC installed (I believe). At some point in the past I installed the Haskell Platform for Mac, and I have GHC 8.01. But I want to downgrade that to 7.10 so that I don't have to worry about compatibility with GHCJS. 

How do I go about uninstalling GHC 8 and installing 7.10 in its place? Can I use Homebrew?
