What Are Delta 8 Edibles?
What are delta 8 edibles? As the name suggests, these sweet treats are food products infused with delta 8. Harboring the fun, mind-bending effects of delta 8, these snacks can come in many forms, from fruity gummies and rich chocolates to hot chips and even refreshing drinks.
Much like delta 9 edibles, you can make these foods from scratch at home. Still, it’s always best to purchase delta 8 edibles from reputable manufacturers like Diamond CBD that can prove the purity and safety of your delta 8 products.
Whether you’re a fan of vegan gummy bears, Belgium dark chocolate, nacho chips, or anything in between, Diamond CBD has something for you.
What Is Delta 8?
Delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol, or delta 8, is a natural psychoactive cannabinoid found in hemp and marijuana plants. With a chemical structure similar to its close relative, delta 9, delta 8 is also a form of THC—aka, the compound that gets you buzzed. Because delta 8 is found in lower concentrations in cannabis plants, it also has lower contents of THC, which explains its nickname “marijuana-lite.”
Although delta 8 contains THC at a much lower level than delta 9, it still produces a mild euphoria. However, with a milder high also come less potent side effects. You won’t experience paranoia or anxiety with delta 8 edibles.
Did You Know: Delta 8 has recently surged in popularity following its technical legalization under the 2018 Farm Bill, which legalized all hemp-derived products for distribution and consumption.
Dosing Delta 8 Edibles
Although dosing can be tricky to pinpoint because it depends mainly on specific variables that vary from body to body, such as weight and tolerance, the consensus is that it’s best to start small and work your way up to the perfect high for you. Reaching this sweet spot can be a little bit of work—you want that friendly, warm feeling of THC, but you don’t want to be left idle and baked beyond cognitive ability.
Researchers have estimated that dosages can be divided into three tiers of tolerance for consumers:
- Beginner (Low Tolerance): 5-15mg per serving
- Casual (Medium Tolerance): 15-45mg per serving
- Frequent (High Tolerance): 45-150mg+ per serving
Another way to measure how much delta 8 you need to feel mild or more potent side effects is your body weight:
- If you weigh: 80lbs And want mild effects take: 5mg And want strong effects take: 15mg
- If you weigh: 120lbs And want mild effects take: 8mg And want strong effects take: 27mg
- If you weigh: 160lbs And want mild effects take: 10mg And want strong effects take: 26mg
- If you weigh: 200lbs And want mild effects take: 13mg And want strong effects take: 45mg

Remember: While these estimates are efficient in theory, they’re ultimately just estimates. Delta 8 edibles dosage depends on individual bodies, and no one knows your body quite like you do.

What’s the Difference Between Delta 8 Edibles and CBD Edibles?
The main difference between delta 8 and CBD is the buzz — though it’s not the only difference. Delta 8 has psychoactive properties, CBD does not, so the latter is recommended to those who want all the benefits of cannabinoids without the mind buzz that often comes with them.
Additionally, delta 8 and CBD have some well-document differences:
Potential Benefits: Delta 8
- Appetite boost
- Much More
Potential Benefits: CBD
- Much More
Side Effects: Delta 8
- Dry mouth
- Red eyes
- Rapid/slow heart rate
- Mild Anxiety
- Short-term memory loss
Side Effects: CBD
- Changes in weight and appetite
- CBD - None
- Delta 8 - Mild
Because delta 8 is a relatively new cannabinoid to hit the market, the research is still in its early stages. Still, we’re learning new things every day!
How Do Delta 8 Edibles Work?
You may have heard that edibles — such as delta 8 edibles — take longer to kick in than oils or vapes. But why? Well, this is due to the metabolic process food goes through when entering our bodies. Unlike vaping or smoking, which vacuum the delta 8 directly into the lungs, munching on an edible creates a much longer path—approximately lasting two hours—for delta 8 before it can start giving you a buzz.
So how do delta 8 edibles work?
- Step One: Get Snacky. After traveling down your esophagus, the edible lands in your stomach.
- Step Two: Digestion. Once in the stomach, the treat is digested and broken down into parts by acids and enzymes.
- Step Three: Absorption. After being broken down, the THC is absorbed through your stomach lining before making its way to the liver.
- Step Four: Welcome to the liver. After arriving to the liver, the delta 8 THC is transformed into 11-hydroxy-THC, a much more potent form of THC than delta 8 and delta 9.
Because 11-hydroxy-THC is much stronger than other types of THC, it can cross the blood-brain barrier much faster than THC that’s been inhaled and is likely to produce much more potent side effects that can last up to 8 hours. Whether you start with delta 8 or delta 9 in your system, your liver takes on the role of transforming it into 11-hydroxy-THC, which is why eating edibles results in a much stronger and longer-lasting high than other methods. Additionally, it’s also the reason a drug test may pick up the delta 8 you ingested and cause a positive test result.
Taking delta 8 edibles is a wonderfully delicious way to put your inner body systems to work; these special munchies give you all the benefits of delta 8 accompanied by a banging buzz that you’re not likely to forget soon!
