So, here are a few more frequently asked questions about Delta-8 THC
Why Does Everyone Love Delta-8 THC?
What’s up with Delta-8 THC? Why does everyone love this novel cannabinoid so much, and why is everyone talking about it? Delta-8 THC is all over the news, your friends can’t stop discussing it, and it’s mentioned on television almost every night. It’s fair to say that Delta-8 THC has taken over the country by storm. And there’s a good reason for that, Delta-8 THC is quite an amazing product.
Take, for example, the following exchange, found recently on an Austin, Texas news channel:
"The high from delta-8 is milder," Millman said. "Most of the people use it during the day."
He added that in states where marijuana is legal, some still prefer Delta-8 to Delta-9.
Sarah... said that’s because the side effects aren’t as strong.
"Delta 8 is lighter," she said. "A lot of people come and want that because they find they don't have the paranoia or the anxiety."
She adds that Delta-8 is just one of hundreds of cannabinoids that is in cannabis.
In other words, Delta-8 THC offers users a true choice. In a world that for years only gave people one option, now there’s competition. And isn’t that what America is all about? Delta-8 THC levels the playing field, and that’s why we love it so much!
What About the Effects of Delta-8 THC?
One of the first questions people ask when they want to try out Delta-8 THC is about its effects. Does it really give users a buzz? Well, by now, we all know that the answer to that question is a resounding yes. Delta-8 THC offers users a smooth but subtle buzz. It’s a clearheaded psychotropic high that doesn’t give you any anxiety, unlike some other cannabinoids that we won’t mention here. And that’s part of the reason that Delta-8 THC has become so popular over the past few years.
But when we dig deeper, what people still don’t know is how the effects of Delta-8 THC last. These are a few questions we covered recently in our FAQs. How long does it take Delta-8 THC effects to start to work? How long do the effects of Delta-8 THC last?
Here’s what we wrote:
Most user reports state that Delta-8 THC begins working with a bit of a delayed effect, especially as compared to Delta-9 THC. Users report that vapes take about 20 minutes, oils and tinctures a bit longer, and edibles anywhere from 1 - 4 hours.
Delta-8 effects genuinely depend on the individual and the product used (vape, tincture, edible, etc.). In general, vapes and oils can last anywhere from 1-5 hours, while edibles, which take a little longer to come on full, can last up to 12 hours.
And now you know!
What About a Tolerance To Delta-8 THC?
Of course, we know that Delta-8 THC is one of the few cannabinoids that offers users a completely legal hemp-derived buzz. This cannabinoid has truly changed the game, allowing people like yourself to purchase a product for pleasure without worry. We’ve fought for these freedoms for over a century, and they’re finally here. The future is a wonderful place in which to live.
With all of the excitement, we can sometimes go a little too far. As we say here at Diamond CBD, things like Liquid Gold Delta-8 THC Vape Cartridges and Chill Plus Delta-8 Lollipops are best used in moderation. But we understand that sometimes people like to use more than others. And with that comes questions about tolerance.
Can you build up a tolerance to Delta-8 THC? It’s another question we asked recently in our FAQs. And here’s how we answered it:
There have been no known studies documenting tolerance to the cannabinoid Delta-8 THC. However, various user reports show that it is much the same as its cousin Delta-9 THC. In other words, tolerance can build from the overuse of the product. As with anything, moderation is always best. We also recommend small or brief breaks from the product to keep your tolerance in check.
What’s So Essential About Delta-8 THC?
This is a tough one. What makes Delta-8 THC essential for one user may not be the same for another. You might use it purely for the buzz, while others may prefer some of its other benefits, as reported by people all around the globe. Chill Plus CBD Oil with Delta-8 is essential for so many reasons; it just depends on what makes it essential to you.
We tried to answer this question in our FAQs recently, and here’s what we said:
Delta-8 is a great discovery and is quite important because it serves as a functional substitute for Delta-9 THC. Plus, it’s legal.
Unlike its cousin Delta 9 THC, which can cause sleep issues, paranoia, anxiety, and more, Delta 8 THC is a smooth and subtle cannabinoid with no known side effects. It’s an important addition to the library of cannabinoids that may benefit many users.
But that answer could also change, as the data is still evolving too. As we noted in our FAQs:
Right now, there is not much data, nor are there many studies as to the potential or possibilities of Delta-8 THC. We know it is safe, and we have many reports on its psychotropic properties. However, very few clinical trials or peer-reviewed studies have yet to be completed. However, as the product becomes more popular, more research will occur.
So right now, we’re still learning about Delta-8 THC. And so are you. The best thing we can say is Delta-8 THC is safe, enjoyable, and full of buzz. But until next time, have fun!
