Chances are you probably just found out about Delta 8 THC. If so, good for you! Or, you might be looking for the best Delta 8 THC product to recommend for a beginner. So, here is a list of recommendations for the best Delta 8 THC for beginners.
Who Is Considered A Beginner
We are considering anyone that has no experience using THC products as a beginner. Although a person might have some experience using CBD products; however, it’s not the same. Delta 8 THC is psychoactive while CBD is non-psychoactive. This means that CBD is not meant to get you high while Delta 8 THC is. There is some confusion over these 2 products because they both come from the same plant. The difference lies in the cannabinoid that is extracted from the Hemp plant that produces different results.
A person who has experience with Marijuana might find Delta 8 THC not to be as potent. This is because of where the double bond is located in Delta 8 Vs. Delta 9 (Traditional Marijuana). On a molecular level - these products are different and produce a different type of high. Therefore, a person who has experience with Cannabis is not considered a beginner to Delta 8 THC. Although most users who transition from Delta 9 to Delta 8 find it produces a less intense high.
Best Delta 8 THC for Beginners
Now that we have established who a beginner is and who is not; here is a list of products that we have compiled to help you best choose a product for beginners.
Delta 8 THC Gummies
One of the best products we carry for beginners is our Rainbow Pack Gummies. Although edibles are great for beginners they tend to get a bad rep. This is because if you take too many at one time you tend to experience an extreme high. We feel that people who have experience with smoking/vaping their THC and take an edible don’t consider that it’s concentrated. Therefore, if you take too much at one time you won’t feel it’s effects until way later.
In order to avoid feeling an extreme high we recommend taking half a gummy. Each gummy comes with 20 mg of THC, and for a beginner that is a lot! Also, you will want to wait for about an hour to an hour and a half before you decide to take more. When you ingest an edible it takes a little longer for your body to metabolize it. A big mistake a lot of people end up doing is they take some, not feel anything, then take some more. This results in an uncomfortable high that discourages them from taking more.
Delta 8 THC Disposable Devices
A product that is yet to hit our site is the Delta 8 THC Disposable Devices. This comes in 3 distinct flavors which include: Guava Purp, Watermelon Zkittlez, and Insane Punch. As the name implies, they are disposable devices that you are able to throw away once you are finished with the Delta 8 THC. They come in Indica and Hybrid strains and are packed with Terpenes. These are good for beginners because there is no prep that is necessary; you are able to open up the package, make sure it’s fully charged, and vape.
Unlike Delta 8 THC Pods and Cartridges, there are no additional devices needed to enjoy. This makes it perfect for someone who is new to Delta 8 THC. You are able to take enough puffs until you feel its effects. When starting off you will want to take 1 or 2 puffs and then wait about 10 - 15 minutes. If you feel you need more then you will take additional puffs. Once you feel you’ve had enough you simply put the device away and recharge if necessary.
Delta 8 THC Tinctures
If you have experience taking CBD Tinctures then you might enjoy Delta 8 THC Tinctures. It’s the same concept as the CBD Tinctures with the exception that it’s Delta 8. You can take it sublingual or mix it in drinks or food, but ultimately Delta 8 THC is meant to get you high. So, that is the big difference between both products but the way you can take it is the same.
Just like the other products listed, you’ll want to start off small first and see how you react to it. A normal dosage is half the dropper (50 ml); however, we recommend taking a quarter of the dropper (25 ml) to start off. You’ll want to let your body absorb the Delta 8 THC first, which is usually about an hour before taking more. If you feel that you need more after 1 hour then we recommend another quarter dropper (25 ml). Keep in mind that your body will develop a tolerance after a while and you might need more after some time.
What A Delta 8 THC High Feels Like
If you’ve never experienced any type of high then you might be wondering what a Delta 8 THC high feels like. It’s very similar to how Delta 9 THC (Marijuana) feels like but less intense. The type of high you experience will also be determined by the type of strain, product, and dosage amount. For a beginner we always recommend taking a little less than the recommended dosage amount. This is to ensure you’re able to enjoy the product without it being too much.
We do recommend trying other products like the Delta 8 THC Cartridges and Pods. However, those products do require additional devices that you will need to invest in. This can discourage first time users, but it makes things interesting knowing that you're committing. When shopping for a Cartridge device you’ll want to use a 510 threading pen style vape device.
