If you have been wondering about the newest kid on the block, rest assured that you are not alone. Delta 8 especially in the form of gummies has taken the market by storm due to its positive as well as mild cerebral effects.
If you are curious to find out how long the gummies you have purchased will take to take effect, you have come to the right place.
First, let us discuss some of the effects that you should be expecting after taking Delta 8. You might experience among others:
· Calming of nausea
· Pain relief
· An increase in appetite
· Increased focus as well as better energy levels
· A sense of well-being that boosts mental health
· A lifting of the mood which can help with depression
Now to the big question…. How long does it take for a Delta 8 gummy high to kick in and when it does, how long do you expect the high to last?
Though Delta 8 can be consumed in different forms including sublingually and by vaping, we will discuss its effect when consumed edibles, specifically gummies. Always keep in mind that taking cannabinoids including Delta 8 on an empty stomach speeds up both the onset as well as the intensity of its effects in most cases.
As is the case with many of the cannabinoid-based edibles in the market, the effects of Delta 8 Gummies typically take longer to kick in. Its effects have generally been described to be a gradual onset as opposed to the more pronounced onset of some other cannabinoids. Most people will experience slight effects after 30 minutes building up to full effects from 2-4 hours. This onset may also be greatly affected by the metabolism of the user as well as how much they have eaten prior to ingesting the gummies.
As everyone is different, starting out with small doses that you can gradually increase will give you a better indication of how many Delta 8 gummies are effective for you. It is also advisable not to rush to consume more if you feel like the effects are not kicking in within the expected time as your body might be taking longer to metabolize. In fact, if you are a new user, postpone further use until the next day to avoid excessive ingestion, which can leave you feeling uncomfortable in very many ways. In case you realize that you have consumed Delta 8 excessively, take deep breaths, relax and try to stay as hydrated as you possibly can.
Unfortunately, there is not a “one size fits all” answer to this question. As we have previously mentioned, the same amount of Delta 8 will have different effects on different people depending on factors such as body chemistry, metabolism, experience with THC and more. Start small and build your way up depending on your tolerance and needs. A good place to start could be a single 25mg Gummy. Depending on the effects you experience, you can then choose to increase your rations appropriately.
THC is the compound that is most commonly known to cause cerebral effects. Delta 8 is similar in chemical composition to Delta 9, which most people have come to refer to as THC. Though both these compounds boast of a double-bonded structure, the different placement of this double-bond makes them have dissimilar effects. The different interaction of Delta 8 with the cannabinoid receptors than that of Delta 9 results in less intoxicating effects. Though Delta 8 might give you a high as it has some cerebral action, it is much lighter than that of Delta 9. This has earned it the names“marijuana-lite” or “diet weed.”
Though the exact experience may differ from one person to another, most people find a Delta 8 high to be extremely relaxing, which puts them into a calm state. They often become clear-headed, content and relaxed with a “chill” sensation washing over them. Most Delta 8 users are able to go about their tasks as normal with even greater focus.
The effects of Delta 8 THC and how long they take to kick in are not an exact science. However, our outline will give you a pretty good assessment of what to expect.
