Delta 8 edibles are a type of cannabis-infused product that contains the cannabinoid Delta 8 THC. Delta 8 THC is a psychoactive compound that is similar to THC, the main psychoactive compound in marijuana. However, Delta 8 THC is less potent than THC and produces less intense psychoactive effects.
Delta 8 edibles are becoming increasingly popular due to their relatively mild psychoactive effects and the fact that they are legal in many states. Delta 8 edibles are available in a variety of forms, including gummies, brownies, and candy.
Here is everything you need to know about Delta 8 edibles, including what they are, how they work, and what to expect from them.
How do Delta 8 edibles work?
Delta 8 edibles work by delivering Delta 8 THC to the body. Delta 8 THC is absorbed into the bloodstream through the digestive system and binds to cannabinoid receptors in the brain. This binding produces psychoactive effects, such as a feeling of euphoria and relaxation.
What to expect from Delta 8 edibles
Delta 8 edibles produce mild psychoactive effects that are similar to those produced by THC. However, Delta 8 THC is less potent than THC, so the effects of Delta 8 edibles are typically less intense.
Most people report feeling relaxed and happy after taking Delta 8 edibles. Some people also report experiencing mild psychoactive effects, such as a feeling of euphoria and increased appetite. Delta 8 edibles typically take effect within 1-2 hours after ingestion.
Delta 8 edibles are produced using CBD or THC extracted from hemp flower. The hemp flower is then infused with a carrier oil, such as coconut oil.
Some Delta 8 edibles are made using an isolate, which is a pure form of the cannabinoid. However, most Delta 8 edibles are made using a distillate, which is a less pure form of the cannabinoid.
Delta 8 edibles are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, and flavors. Some Delta 8 edibles are made to look like traditional candy, while others are made to look like gummies or chocolates.
Delta 8 edibles are typically sold in packages of 10, 20, or 30 pieces. The dosage of Delta 8 in each edible can vary depending on the manufacturer. Most Delta 8 edibles contain between 10-30mg of Delta 8.
Delta 8 edibles are a safe and effective way to experience the mild psychoactive effects of Delta 8 THC. However, it is important to start with a low dose and increase gradually to avoid unwanted side effects.
