Delta-8 Edibles by Delta Flowers
Like CBD, delta-8 THC is in pretty much every imaginable product nowadays. While traditional tinctures and vape carts remain super popular, delta-8 gummies remain as one of the most popular products among alt cannabinoid enthusiasts. For those looking for a different experience when it comes to enjoying this popular alt cannabinoid, edibles and gummies are a great choice.
At Delta Flowers, we offer a wide range of lab-tested delicious Delta-8 Edibles, so feel free to take a browse and see which products fit the Delta-8 Experience you’re looking for.
How Do Delta-8 Gummies Compare With CBD Edibles?
The best way to explain delta-8 edibles is to contrast them with similarly popular CBD products. Both of these hemp-derived items taste the same, and they have subtler effects compared with tinctures, vape carts, or hemp flowers. However, since delta-8 THC has psychoactive properties, it takes fewer gummies to have a pronounced impact versus CBD.
Most reports suggest delta-8 molecules could land on the brain’s CB1 receptors. By contrast, CBD only affects the endocannabinoid system indirectly. It’s also likely that CBD intercepts THC molecules, thus reducing the psychoactivity of a hemp strain.
People who are only used to CBD edibles may be surprised how just one delta-8 gummy has a more substantial impact on their body. While CBD produces a gentle sense of calm, delta-8 could provoke feelings of euphoria, sedation, or “inner peace” even at comparatively lower doses.
Is It Legal To Buy Delta-8 Gummies In The USA?
Because delta-8 has been so successful, it has become a contentious cannabinoid in the hemp industry. Even though the 2018 US Farm Bill doesn’t ban delta-8, many states are trying to get rid of this THC relative. So, delta-8 THC gummies may be technically off-limits at the local level.
Generally speaking, if your state is pro-recreational cannabis, it’s unlikely they’ll have an issue with hemp-derived delta-8. However, people in a non-cannabis-friendly state need to verify their legislature’s current hemp policy.
If there aren’t delta-8 laws on the books, you should look for delta-8 edibles that come from verified hemp farms. Under federal law, only hemp derivatives with ≤ 0.3 percent delta-9 THC are OK in the USA. Please double-check that your delta-8 company has a third-party verified Certificate of Analysis that proves each product’s delta-9 concentration.
Will Delta-8 Gummies Make Users Feel "Stoned?"
Delta-8 may not be as intense as delta-9 THC, but it does have intoxicating properties. Therefore, if you take a ton of delta-8 gummies, you could experience “stoner-like” effects.
However, it’s more likely you’ll feel “high” if you take delta-8 in a more direct medium like vape carts or smokable flowers. Even delta-8 tinctures tend to work faster than delta-8 edibles, especially if you place them under your tongue.
Delta-8 edibles aren’t super potent because they have a slower absorption rate. All of the other delta-8 products mentioned above go directly into your bloodstream. Gummies, however, have to pass through the liver and digestive tract before they make an impact.
Not only does it take longer for delta-8 gummies to take effect, they often have a lower potency. Some of that delta-8 that went through the liver won’t get into your bloodstream; hence, it won’t attach to your cannabinoid receptors.
So, yes, delta-8 gummies could make you feel “high,” but it’s less likely they’ll have the stereotypical “stoner” effects compared with hemp flowers or vape carts.
How Many Delta-8 Gummies Should A Beginner Take?
Nobody could give you a precise daily dosage for cannabinoids like delta-8 THC. Our age, weight, and metabolism will affect how delta-8 gummies make us feel. Therefore, you need to be willing to experiment with these products to find your perfect dosage.
When taking delta-8 gummies, please start with the lowest recommended dose and track how it makes you feel. Generally, low-intensity gummies have ~ 10 mg of delta-8 per piece. Make a note of this dosage in a journal and record any noteworthy sensations.
Please remember that delta-8 gummies don’t work immediately. Avoid the temptation to keep eating these sugary treats, because you may feel undesirable side effects later on. People who take too many delta-8 edibles may experience vomiting, diarrhea, or intense fatigue a few hours later.
Only increase your daily delta-8 dosage when you feel comfortable at your current level. Once you experience the effects you’re after, maintain this level of delta-8.
When Should Delta-8 Edibles Take Effect?
In general, it takes between 30 – 50 minutes before you’ll notice any effects from a delta-8 edible. Of course, this timeframe could be shorter or longer depending on your delta-8 dosage and your body structure.
For instance, thin adults with fast metabolisms may notice delta-8’s effects after just 15 minutes. By contrast, heavier people may need twice the amount of gummies and only experience symptoms after about 45 minutes.
There’s no set time for when delta-8 has to take effect. Please have patience when first experimenting with these gummies.
Are Delta-8 Gummies Safe For The Workplace?
Never mix delta-8 with work. Even though delta-8 gummies are less intense than other products, they aren’t the best choice for a productive environment.
Indeed, many people claim delta-8 has “indica like” effects, which means they lean on the sedative end of the spectrum. If you already struggle with “getting things done,” delta-8 probably won’t get you motivated.
Also, delta-8 THC looks remarkably similar to delta-9. Therefore, if you have to take a drug test, any delta-8 in your system could ruin your results.
It’s far safer to add broad-spectrum or CBD isolate gummies to your work routine. These edibles aren’t as potent as delta-8, but they have zero traces of THC.
