Have you ever consumed too much of a THC edible and found yourself crawling down a flight of steps to grab a drink of water? Your head is rushing, your mouth is parched, your heart feels like it’s about to pop out of your chest from being too high on edibles?
We have–and it’s not a place we want to return. The struggle is real when you consume the wrong amount of THC. With any kind of edible, there is one way to go: start low and go slow. Break off a 3-5 MG piece of that edible–or get it dosed–and pace yourself. Wait an hour and if you feel good, dose yourself up. Over time, a tolerance will build and you (and only you) will know how to treat your body.
Delta-8-THC edibles are perhaps the best way to consume Delta-8-THC. They active best in chocolates and gummies–like our No Cap varieties–and truly have an efficient, soothing effect. However, if you go to deep and consume too much of any Delta-8-THC chocolate, you may soon be uncomfortable
Popular and prominent now, Delta-8-THC edibles are why the cannabis community and hemp industries are going all in on Delta-8-THC, the sister strain of Delta-9 (THC).
Some have reviewed the Delta-8 THC edibles as feeling like a combination between THC and CBD, with a floating affect that causes deep relaxation and doesn’t overwhelm the consumer–as some edibles have a tendency of doing. The National Cancer Institute writes that it “exhibits a lower psychotropic potency than Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-9-THC), the primary form of THC found in cannabis.” While there are still some psychoactive effects, it is milder overall.
For more experienced users that dabble in joints and cannabis daily, Delta-8 THC edibles are exactly “as advertised” and even “energizing,” whereas less-habitual users felt that even 5mg left them feeling “slow and stupid” as if they’d smoked regular pot, and the groggy aftereffects were enough to set it aside except for help with insomnia. As with any kind of medicinal or recreational drug use, a best practice is to start small and work your way up, finding the perfect dosage for you to get the best possible experience out of it.
Derived from hemp, Delta-8 THC edibles remain widely available in head shops, smoke shops and purchasable online throughout most states in the United States. Check out if your state is offering up this and head to a reliable Delta-8-THC website to find the right Delta-8-THC edible for you.
Delta-8 is a highly-popular cannabinoid that provides the user with a less-potent, more clear-headed high. Following the 2018 Farm Bill and the outburst of CBD products, you can count on seeing more of Delta-8 THC edibles developed in the future.
