This minor cannabinoid is shaking up the industry, allowing new and experienced users alike the opportunity to enjoy a relaxing, mellow high without some of the uncomfortable side effects associated with Delta-9.

While there are many ways to try Delta-8 (including a disposable vape!), weed gummies are popular, convenient, and delicious. Ready to elevate Delta 8 and enjoy a new favorite snack while you’re at it? Today, we’re sharing what you need to know about these gummies and how to order a pack or two today!

What Is Delta-8?

Before we share the ins and outs of Delta-8 THC gummies, let’s take a minute to review a few key details about this cannabinoid. You can read all about the compound in this extensive Delta 8 THC guide, which also covers the different strain classifications available.

Technically known as Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol, Delta-8 is a minor, psychoactive cannabinoid found in the Cannabis sativa plant. Both marijuana and hemp are varieties of this plant.

To date, scientists and researchers have identified more than 100 cannabinoids in addition to Delta-8. While this particular one is produced naturally in the plant, it’s only available in trace amounts. As such, manufacturers have to synthesize it in a lab to make sufficient quantities.

When they do, they create Delta-8 from hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD). In accordance with the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp that contains less than 0.3% THC is considered federally legal. This means that certain, hemp-derived THC derivatives, including Delta-8, are typically easier to buy than traditional Delta-9 which is still illegal on the federal level.

What’s In Delta-8 Gummies?

You can choose to ingest Delta-8 in a number of different ways. Whether you smoke, vape, use a tincture, or enjoy an edible, you can expect mild highs, easy relaxation, and a calm sense of euphoria.

If gummies are your method of choice, you’ll have plenty to choose from. Weed-infused gummy snacks are popular and come in a variety of delicious flavors.

Will Delta-8 Gummies Get You High?

Delta-8 gummies are infused with the hemp-derived Delta-8 cannabinoid. This means that yes, they will get you high. However, you won’t have that out-of-body experience that you might be used to with Delta-9.

Instead, most users find that it’s a mild, mellow high that doesn’t significantly impair their ability to move, think, or focus. If you just want to feel enjoyably high and slightly euphoric but don’t want to melt into the couch, consider switching up your Delta-9 THC routine and trying Delta-8 gummies.

Some people might feel more of a cerebral high, which means the effects are primarily mental and emotional in nature. Others report that Delta-8 gummies give them a bodily high, leading to physical sensations of relaxation and calm. Either way, you’re bound to feel the effects when you take them.

One note: When taking an edible like a gummy, it may take a little longer for the effects of the Delta-8 THC to kick in. This is because it has to travel through your digestive system first. When you vape it, the process is much quicker because it can bypass that process.

Are Delta-8 Gummies Legal?

When it comes to the legality of certain minor cannabinoids, the answer isn’t always cut and dry. On the federal level, most experts agree that certain THC derivatives, including Delta-8, are legal as long as they’re produced from hemp that contains less than 0.3% THC.

Across the United States, each state is allowed to create its own rules and restrictions around the usage of marijuana and related products. If they follow the federal mandates, then they normally allow hemp-derived substances like Delta-8. However, some states have outlawed these products altogether.

It can be complicated to keep up with the changes on a greater scale. If you’re unsure about whether Delta-8 gummies are legal where you live, check out this map. It’s one of the most up-to-date resources on Delta-8 legality, and it’s updated on a consistent basis.

Always check before you purchase to make sure you’re following the law.

Finding Your Delta-8 Gummy Dosage

There’s no doubt that these gummies are scrumptious. However, it’s important to know your limits. If you’re brand-new to Delta-8 or THC in general, you may not even want to begin with a full-sized serving. Dividing your gummy in half or even into fourths can offer you a more comfortable, pleasant experience and lowers your risk of any icky side effects.

We break down everything you need to consider when calculating your ideal dosage for Delta 8 edibles in our online guide. Here are a few tips to help you get started.

Know Your Unique Factors

When it comes to the perfect Delta-8 gummy dose, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all amount that will work for everyone. We’re all different, and what works for your friend or relative might not work for you.

There are a few different factors that will determine how much Delta-8 you need to take to achieve the results you want. These include:

  • Your body composition
  • Your age
  • Your general health condition
  • Your weed tolerance
  • Your genetic makeup
  • The amount of Delta-8 in the gummy

In addition, your endocannabinoid system (ECS) also plays a role. This is an internal system that affects nearly every bodily function imaginable, including:

  • Sleep
  • Hunger
  • Emotional processing
  • Temperature control
  • Learning and memory
  • Inflammatory responses
  • Immune system responses
  • Pain control

When you consume Delta-8, the cannabinoid binds to the receptors in your ECS system. Specifically, it actively binds to your CB1 receptors. These help regulate neuronal transmission and other important physiological processes, such as pain, inflammation, and memory.

Each person’s ECS is different, and the way that Delta-8 binds to it will be unique to you. This is part of the reason why it affects people in varying degrees and capacities. Don’t compare your experience with anyone else’s and go at your own pace!

Start Low and Go Slow

Any time you try a cannabis product, we always recommend starting with a lower dose than you might think you need. Remember: You can always add more Delta-8 if your high isn’t quite where you want it to be. However, it takes a while to come down from a high that’s too intense.

Thankfully, the side effects of taking too much Delta-8 aren’t too uncomfortable. They’re also less likely to lead to feelings of anxiety and paranoia, as Delta-9 can do. Still, don’t run the risk.

Start with a small amount, and then wait about 30 to 90 minutes for the effects of Delta-8 to take hold. This can vary based on the type of product you use.

Increase in Increments

If you’ve waited the appropriate amount of time and you still feel like you need to go higher, exercise caution when you do so. Instead of jumping up a significant amount, only add about 5mg to 10mg of Delta-8 each time. This gives you more control over your dosage and allows you to measure precisely how much you’re taking.

You may find it helpful to take notes on how your mind and body react to certain levels of Delta-8. This way, when you’re ready to enjoy it again, you won’t have to go through all the trial and error of your previous times.

Microdosing Delta-8 Gummies

Microdosing is quickly becoming a common trend in the cannabis world. For many people, it’s a great way to enjoy all the benefits of Delta-8 without any of the side effects.

Here’s how it works.

Microdosing means taking a little bit of your cannabis product at a time, giving your body plenty of time to react before adding any more. In this way, it’s the polar opposite of macrodosing, which is the process of taking a substantial amount of a product at once to achieve a major, euphoric high.

Most often associated with psychedelics like psilocybin and LSD, microdosing allows you to remain calm, focused, and clear-headed as you focus on your tasks. To get the most out of this experience, make sure you’re taking the smallest dose that works for you.

The factors that determine your standard dosing level will also apply here. Your age, body type, health condition, and more will play a role in the microdose that works best for you. Your tolerance and experience with weed will also make a difference.

If you’re used to Delta-8, then a microdose for you might be 25mg, which you’ll find in a typical gummy. Conversely, someone new to this cannabinoid may prefer to microdose with just 10mg. Try an extra-small dose at first to find your comfort level and slowly expand from there.

Is It Possible to Overdose on Delta-8 Gummies?

When it comes to a snack like Delta 8 gummies, it’s easy to overdo it. After all, these taste sweet and they’re available in a variety of flavors, which makes it tempting to try them all!

While this might be the case, we definitely encourage you to show restraint. Remember: These are not candy. Consuming too many at one time could lead to some pretty difficult side effects.

From nausea and dizziness to skin rashes and headaches, you could experience a range of symptoms if you over-indulge. If you’re worried that you may take it too far, it’s always a good idea to take your edibles in the presence of a trusted friend or loved one!

There are usually recommended amounts listed on the product packaging. When you’re in the moment and having a good time, you may think it’s safe to go over that limit but think twice. Unless you’ve built up your tolerance enough that you can safely do so, it could hurt more than it helps.

Traveling With Delta-8 Gummies

One of the top benefits of Delta-8 gummies is that they’re discreet. You can easily stash them at home or work, and enjoy them without making a big fuss. This is one of the reasons why many people prefer to travel with them!

Especially if you have anxiety about being on a plane, you might wonder if you can bring your beloved gummies on board with you. Once again, there isn’t an answer that experts agree on with 100% certainty.

In terms of regulations, most airlines are primarily concerned with the amount of THC that a product contains. Some will have strict rules against products that contain any THC while others follow the federal rule of nothing over 0.3%. Either way, the contents of your checked luggage and carry-on could be subject to an examination before you’re allowed to pass through the gate.

The TSA’s official stance is in accordance with the 2018 Farm Bill. The agency explains that marijuana and some cannabis-infused products, including CBD, are illegal unless they contain no more than 0.3% THC on a dry-weight basis or are FDA-approved. You can read their full statement here.
