How to properly dose Delta-8 THC
Dosing for beginners
New to THC products? We’ve got your back!
While Delta-8 THC products may LOOK like CBD products, they are actually very different, and properly dosing is important.
For starters, Delta-8 THC is psychoactive, CBD is not. In the simplest terms, Delta-8 will get you “high,” while CBD will not have the same effect. While both come from the hemp plant, the difference in the cannabinoid that is extracted produces different results for each substance.
Casual or frequent Marijuana users may feel Delta-8 THC is not nearly as potent (read more on that here (link to “What is Delta 8 Blog). By contrast, CBD-only users, or users that have never used THC products may find Delta-8 very potent.
While users who transition from Delta-9 THC (Marijuana) to Delta-8 THC may find it produces a less intense high- new users should be cautious and take care when trying initial doses.
Dosing Delta-8 THC Gummies
One of the best Delta-8 products for beginners are gummies. In order to avoid feeling an extreme high upon first dosing, we recommend taking half a gummy initially. If after taking ½ a gummy you feel the dosage is not enough, wait 24 hours and increase to a full daily dosage of 1 gummy. Remember that it is important to give the gummy time (about an hour to 2 hours) before considering your tolerance. It can take a short while for your body to metabolize.
Learning from other’s error
A common mistake a lot of first time users make is taking an initial dose, and not waiting to see if it’s working- then taking more too quickly. This can result in an uncomfortable high, and bad first experience. Take your time and see what works best for you. Everyone is different. Start with our low dose gummies first!
