There are many Delta 8 THC options that have hit the market the past year. What’s more – there is a whole bunch of new cannabinoids entering the space now as well like THC-O, Hemp derived Delta 9 THC, HHC, and others.
It All Depends on Preference
Some people just have to dab. Some like to light up a joint or pack a bowl. Still others swear by edibles. It all depends on your preference. Just because you have a pleasant experience with smoking Delta 8 THC, does not necessarily mean you will enjoy edible Delta 8 THC – and vice versa.
An experienced user will have some idea of which method they prefer – but the beginner should avoid large doses regardless the method of consumption. First time users of Delta 8 THC should always take the smallest dose possible. If you’re consuming flower – inhale a small amount and wait 15-20 minutes to evaluate your experience (listen to your body) before consuming any more. If you are a first time edible Delta 8 THC user – consume the smallest amount possible (typically around 5mg Delta 8 THC) and wait 30 mins to an hour and assess your body’s reaction to the edible.
What Delta 8 THC Brands are Safe? What Delta 8 THC is best in 2023?
Consuming lab tested (and consumer tested) Delta 8 THC is always a best practice regardless of the method of use. Do not ever consume Delta 8 THC that does not have recent lab reports available. Here are some more tips for consuming Delta 8 THC brands safely:
Know your dose. Always know the amount you are consuming as it can vary drastically from product to product. Some Delta 8 THC edibles and gummies will contain a very small amount of Delta 8 THC – down to 5mg sometimes – while some will contain 100mg or more per gummy.
Know Your Vendor. With many reputable Delta 8 THC brands and vendors available – it is important to go with a trusted source. Don’t buy on the black market – and make sure there are many verified reviews of any online vendors.
