Part of the risk associated with these products is the variability in labeling and the lack of potency limits. Chronic use can also lead to dependence, meaning that when there is no THC in the system, withdrawal symptoms are likely to appear. THC withdrawal symptoms can include sleep problems, irritability, decreased concentration, anxiety, depressive state, and headaches. The good news is that withdrawal symptoms from using delta-8 are much less severe than, for example, opioids.
Even so, it's best to be careful, even more so if your propensity for LDS is greater. Delta-8 products may also increase the risk of developing or worsening a mental health condition. Marijuana has been linked to depression, social anxiety, and even suicide.
