There is so much buzz around Delta 8 THC lately. Δ8 THC (Delta 8 THC) is an intoxicating cannabinoid derived from hemp that people use for a variety of reasons, so it’s no wonder that it has gained some well deserved time in the spotlight. Many people have a curiosity about this cannabinoid, but don’t really know where to begin. One of the most important things to do when starting out is to learn how much to take. Particularly with anything intoxicating, higher doses may lead to an unpleasant experience that could be avoided with a more minimalist approach.
While people typically take Δ8 THC to increase appetite, help them sleep or to manage stress, many do consume Δ8 THC simply for the intoxicating effects. There are numerous ways to consume this cannabinoid, and it’s not uncommon to switch up methods depending on the desired effect. Some of the most popular options overall are edibles and vape cartridges, but those looking for more dynamic dosing tend to prefer tinctures. One of the main reasons for this is that people generally start at lower doses, which is easily attainable with a tincture.
Even with CBD, this can be preferable as many people find lower doses incredibly effective, and would be wasting money and may feel side effects like unwanted sleepiness at high doses. While some people purposefully take higher doses due to the reported effects of such, it’s valuable to discover what minimal doses may do for you. To get the full effects of a low dose, people often stick to the same low dose for 5-7 days before increasing it. For example, with Δ8 THC, you could start off taking 40mg and get uncomfortably intoxicated, only to find later that 5mg was perfect for the effects you were looking for.
There are numerous ways to explore lower doses, so don’t feel pressured to jump into a super high dose right away. As mentioned earlier, tinctures can be a really great way to do this by taking less or more liquid. Tinctures aren’t the only way to effectively try a broad scope of doses; this can be done vaping as well as with edibles like gummies and chocolates. For vaping, you can try smaller puffs and increase the amount of puffs until you feel the desired effects. With both chocolates and gummies, you can cut them up into halves and take either one half for a lower dose or even one and a half for a higher dose. With so many options, you can tailor your Δ8 THC intake to your unique preferences.
Trying something new can be daunting sometimes, but knowing how to control and manipulate your dose can make the experience a lot more pleasurable. It’s important to know that even a low dose of Δ8 THC is intoxicating and you should never drive under the influence of Δ8 THC.
