How high does delta 8 get you?

The FDA is also concerned that products with delta-8 THC are likely. Delta-8 THC has psychoactive and intoxicating effects, similar to those of delta-9 THC (that is, the FDA is aware of media reports about delta-8 THC products that cause consumers to “get high”). The FDA is also concerned that delta-8 THC products may expose consumers to much higher levels of the substance than those found naturally in raw hemp and cannabis extracts. Therefore, the historical use of cannabis cannot be relied upon to establish a level of safety for these products in humans.

Delta 8 gets you high, but it's different from traditional THC. You may feel the effects of Delta 8 almost instantly and, at first, they may seem much stronger than those of regular THC. This initial wave feels strong and cerebral before it turns into a comfortable, soft feeling. The short answer is that it can.

When the body breaks down and processes marijuana, THC metabolites are produced. Urine tests look for these metabolites. Because Delta-8 creates THC metabolites, a positive test result may result. Statistically, THC Delta 9 has been shown to be converted to THC Delta 8 when exposed to the heat of a lighter or oven when trying to ignite.

This makes Delta 8 one of the most popular cannabinoids on the market today, especially since it generally doesn't cause any sense of hostility, even at high doses. Since THC Delta 8 undergoes the same metabolic process as THC Delta 9 when exposed to heat, they are statistically exactly the same, except for the fact that THC Delta 8 doesn't produce as much effect. Delta 8 also differs from traditional THC because it can act as an appetite suppressant rather than an appetite enhancer, which is what happens with traditional THC. Some Delta 8 products are much more expensive than others, so you'll have to decide if a higher price is worth paying.

You can take Delta 8 by making a tincture and adding it to any drink you want, or by ingesting it directly. Delta 8 THC is a variant of the better-known Delta 9 THC found in certain types of medical marijuana. Delta 8 binds to the CB1 receptor in the brain and has approximately 10% of the psychoactive effect of THC, but researchers believe that this number is close to 30% in some cases. In general, you can expect to feel the effects of Delta 8 for at least 6 hours, even if it's been more than 3 hours since you last took a dose.

By now, almost everyone understands that Delta 8 is legal at the federal level, even if it isn't in their state. However, correctly dosing Delta 8 gummies can be difficult, especially when it comes to finding the perfect effect. As with any cannabinoid, you'll be more sensitive to Delta 8 if you're new to using cannabis or THC products.
