Delta 8 THC is relatively new to the cannabinoid industry but is growing at a fast pace. Most brands appear and establish themselves in the market at lightning speed to ensure that every consumer is satisfied.
Years of research have helped to understand how products with THC, terpenes, cannabinoids, or other components of cannabis work. Delta 8 THC can be added to most products today, from cupcakes to tinctures to gummies.
Is it Possible to Overdose on Delta 8 THC?
The facts show that a lethal overdose is impossible since cannabinoids do not affect the area of the brain that provides the body with respiratory functions – check it out. As much as 50g of unblended THC can cause liver toxicity. One of the most common side effects, and if taken too much of Delta 8, is sedation and unusually deep relaxation, which can cause discomfort for some users. There is also mild dizziness and mild confusion, but in a milder form than from Delta 9. Users of Delta 8 do not report the appearance of anxiety or paranoia after taking it.
What Doses to Take Delta 8 THC?
Companies that manufacture and sell goods with Delta 8 THC offer different options that match these two factors. They also offer different sizes: someone sells the product in a 30 ml bottle, and someone sells it twice as much. This also applies to gummies, muffins, vapes, and other cannabinoid products. The dose of Delta 8 can be determined by two factors:
- The unit capacity of the product;
- The amount of a substance in one milligram;
There is a formula by which you can find out the amount of Delta 8 substance per serving: you need to divide the number of milligrams of the substance by the size of the product. Example: A total of 1200 mg of Delta 8 THC in liquid form is in a 30ml bottle – divide 1200 by 40, and you get 40 mg per 1ml. This concentration can cause mild cognitive effects, even for those who are experienced with Delta 8 THC. For those who have never tried this substance before, it is worth using it with caution.
How Fast Does Delta 8 THC Get High?
There is no specific number that fits all users. Very often it all depends on the way the substance is used, the environment, mood, physical health, and other factors. After years of observation, it can be said that usually the effects after ingestion through the lungs appear within 10-20 minutes. When taking Delta 8 THC as a liquid, the effect will come in 1-1.5 hours. The longest time to get high from THC is through the digestive process after 2-3 hours – gummies or capsules.
Delta 8 THC does not differ from other cannabinoid analogs in its mode of action. The user should be careful with the issue of dosage and intensity – especially gummies or other food products with THC, due to their long activation, they may think that the substance has not worked and take another dose. But it is always worth remembering and keeping in mind that you need to wait an average of 2 hours and do not rush with the decision to take the drug again.
