How Does Delta 8 THC Compare to THC in Weed?
Delta 8 THC, also known as delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol, is one of over 100 cannabinoids found in hemp or cannabis plants. Cannabinoids are molecular compounds that interact with the human endocannabinoid system.
Delta 8 Get Me High?
Yes, if you have Delta 8 in any form, including smoking Sour Lifter Delta 8 flower, you will get high. While Delta 8 THC is reported to have a less powerful sense of intoxication than Delta 9, it does get you high. Because of the double bond structure, Delta 8 binds to the body’s endocannabinoid receptor much like Delta 9.
However, CBD does not have this double bond and therefore does not create a psychotropic effect. It does have a host of beneficial and therapeutic uses. For the CBD user interested in trying something with a little more kick, Delta 8 THC is a great next step.
Users of Delta 8 THC report that it creates a sensation of euphoria, relaxation, and mild sedation similar to Delta 9 or cannabis. You can also expect the classic THC-related side-effects of red eyes, dry mouth, and a strong desire to snack. How Delta 8 differs from cannabis is that users notice there is less incidence of drawbacks of delta 9. Delta 8 is an excellent choice for recreational CBD consumers, especially if the user is interested in a more potent high but worried about feeling too overwhelmed by the experience.
Dosing Based on Frequency of Usage
We recommend dosing low and slow for any user who is not familiar with THC products. You want to give your body ample time to process the THC, so make sure not to dose up too quickly. You can try Delta 8 THC products in various formats, from Delta 8 infused flower, edibles created with Delta 8 isolate, and Delta 8 cartridges for vaping.
