People who enjoy CBD and marijuana alike are familiar with the range of CBD edibles available on the market. These CBD-infused consumables come in many different forms and can help you with all kinds of things, from trouble focusing, to stomachaches, to general malaise. Thanks to modern cannabis research, edibles are now available in the form of Delta 8 gummies which have revolutionized the way you experience physical and mental wellness.
These small, potent treats have recently taken the cannabis market by storm as consumers reap the benefits of a new and improved version of regular CBD gummies. Keep reading to get the rundown on Delta 8 gummies and how they can help boost your quality of life.
What Are Delta 8 Gummies?
Delta 8 gummies (or D8 gummies) are tasty fruit snacks infused with the Delta 8 cannabinoid. This newly discovered, natural cannabinoid promotes homeostasis in your body the same way CBD does, except it can give you more bang for your buck.
Delta 8 products work twice as hard as any other CBD product to give you the benefits of euphoric sleep, relaxation, discomfort relief, and more. Even better, Delta 8 does all this without the negative side effects that Delta 9 THC can induce. Delta 9 THC is the primary compound in marijuana. It is responsible for the groggy “high” marijuana can cause. Delta 8 is more powerful than CBD but not quite as intense as Delta 9, so you shouldn’t experience severe side effects such as paranoia.
Delta 8 Gummy Ingredients
In all Exhale Wellness creations, only natural and organic ingredients free of GMOs go into the product formulas. There are no gimmicks, no hard-to-pronounce chemicals, and no unidentifiable substances. Everything we put into our gummies makes them high-quality edibles.
Exhale Wellness Delta 8 gummies are made of vegan ingredients that substitute the animal-based gelatin of other run-of-the-mill gummies on the market. We use organic ingredients like rice syrup, citric acid, plant-based pectin, and fruit concentrates to make our products taste tropical and delicious!
Best of all, our Delta 8 gummies are infused with full spectrum Delta 8 THC that offers the maximum benefits of the entourage effect. This theory states that when multiple components of the cannabis plant work together, they produce more powerful and effective overall results on the body.
Dosing Recommendations for Delta 8 Gummies
When trying Delta 8 THC for the first time, it is important to remember that it can affect people differently; what works for one person may not for another. Generally, we recommend starting with a lower dose and working your way up. And as always, it is best to consult a physician before trying any new wellness products, CBD included. Things that may affect your dosage amount are:
- Medical History
- If you’ve recently eaten
- How active you are
- Your tolerance to Delta 8 THC
- Your purpose for taking Delta 8
A basic guideline is to start with 5 – 15 mg of Delta 8 if you have a low tolerance or are just starting out. If the effects are not satisfactory at that level, you should increase the dosage to 15 – 45mg. Those with a high tolerance can try from 45 – 150 mg or more, if necessary.
Why Eat Delta 8 Gummies?
Among all the options for Delta 8, gummies present a few advantages over other products.
CBD can have an earthy, bitter taste that may be unpleasant for some consumers. In the form of gummies, you can instead have a fruity selection of flavors that taste like juice or candy. And with Exhale Well’s organic, dye-free ingredients, you can remain guilt-free eating these yummy treats.
Unlike other CBD products, you can easily transport Delta 8 gummies for trouble-free consumption, so you can take them whenever, wherever, for convenient on-the-go relaxation and tranquility.
Delta 8 THC gummies also have consistent dosage amounts that are easy to keep track of. This way, you don’t need to measure the dose every time you take Delta 8 like you would with other products. Just pop one (or two) in your mouth, and you’re good to go!
Because Delta 8 gummies look like any other candy, you can rest assured that everyone will be none the wiser to what you’re eating. Given the many incorrect stereotypes around cannabis products, some may feel embarrassed or hesitant about taking Delta 8 in public spaces. Taking your daily dose of Delta 8 on the bus, at work, or in line for lunch provides you with the perfect disguise in the form of a candy-look-alike.
The way you consume Delta 8 changes how it interacts with your body. With Delta 8 gummies, there is a long latency period because your body has to go through the digestive process before the cannabinoids are metabolized, so it takes longer for Delta 8’s effects to kick in. However, this also means that the effects will last longer. The longer it takes for Delta 8 to work, the longer its effects are felt.
What Are the Differences Between CBD, Delta 8, and Regular Cannabis?
The cannabis plant contains many different cannabinoids that collectively create the genetic makeup of cannabis products, including marijuana. Cannabinol (CBD) and Delta 8 are two of these cannabinoids, and they are found in both cannabis and hemp-derived products. Hemp extracted CBD doesn’t cause any euphoric or high effects, instead soothing your mind and body. Delta 8 does this as well, but with a greater experience of bliss and elation. But what about Delta 8 vs. Delta 9? Let’s find out!
Delta 8 Vs. Delta 9
We mentioned Delta 9 THC, but what is that exactly? Delta 8 and 9 have almost the same chemical structure but are widely different because of where and how their elements bond together. D9 has stronger effects on the body when compared to Delta 8 THC and can more easily cause paranoia, nervousness, or over-sedation.
D9 is still classified as a Schedule I drug, making it illegal on the federal level. However, this legality can vary from state to state, as does regular cannabis/marijuana. Hemp-derived Delta 8, on the other hand, is federally legal! Let’s take a look at why.
Are Delta 8 THC Gummies Legal?
While Delta 8 products contain trace amounts of Delta 9 THC (0.3% D9 THC or less), you shouldn’t feel powerful adverse effects. Any product containing 0.3% Delta 9 THC or less is considered a hemp derivative that is federally legal according to the 2018 Farm Bill.
Are There Any Side Effects When Eating Delta 8 Gummies?
Delta 8 THC gummies are considered generally safe to consume by the public. Overindulging or for those who are less tolerant of CBD and Delta 8 products, taking Delta 8 gummies can cause a few insignificant side effects. In some cases, Delta 8 may cause:
- Temporary dry mouth
- Food cravings
- Trouble focusing
- Dry or red eyes
How Do I Choose the Best Delta 8 Gummies?
When selecting the best Delta 8 gummies, or any Delta 8 THC products for that matter, it is important to do research. Recognizing the factors that make a safe and high-quality product will ensure you only purchase from reputable brands.
Trust the consumer! Companies will always tell you their products are the best on the market, but real stories from actual consumers will tell you the real story. Check out online reviews or ask people you know who have experience with a company’s products. Are they mostly good or bad? Are the reviews biased or paid endorsements?
You should always look at a few websites or forums with reviews to get an idea of a brand’s reliability. If several people on several websites review positively, it’s likely a trustworthy source.
The best Delta 8 products are made by converting CBD to Delta 8. Hemp-derived CBD should be obtained using CO2 extraction methods, which is the safest method because it doesn’t leave behind harmful solvents in the final product. When checking out Delta 8 oils or products containing Delta 8 oils, ensure the extraction method is clean, safe, and pure.
Companies should source their hemp from certified hemp growers. Because plants absorb their nutrients from the soil and water, anything toxic in their environment can be inside the crops we consume. Contaminated soil, pesticides, pollutants, and other factors can make hemp plants toxic or otherwise unsuitable for consumption. Ensuring the hemp used in Delta 8 products is organic and sourced from a reputable farm is vital for your health and well-being.
Delta 8 gummies should have a list of relatively simple ingredients. Any synthetic additives or preservatives can cause harm to your health. Look for organic, all-natural ingredients in Delta 8 products that are preferably non-GMO. Synthetic ingredients can also affect the flavor of the product, further lowering its quality.
Certificates of Analysis (COAs)
Third-party lab testing for cannabinoid content and the label’s accuracy in all Delta 8 products is necessary to prove their potency and safety. If a company doesn’t list COAs for their products or outright refuses to submit them for testing, look for a different supplier. This could mean their products are of inferior or harmful quality.
