As more and more delta-8 products hit the market, consumers are starting to ask the question: does delta-8 get you high? It’s a valid question to ask, but not one that can be answered with a simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer.
Delta-8 is a psychoactive cannabinoid from the cannabis plant. It’s also an isomer of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, which you will see referred to as THC.
Many people consume delta-8 CBD oil and other products for their neuroprotective, orexigenic, analgesic, anxiolytic, and antiemetic properties. However, while potentially experiencing relief from delta-8, are consumers actually getting high?
Getting High On Delta-8 THC
When you consume delta-8 THC products, it’s not uncommon to feel relaxed. You may even notice that the feeling is similar to consuming a small amount of marijuana. However, there can be many differences between the two.
For example, some people have noticed that after using delta-8 products, they didn’t feel anxious, paranoid, or nervous. Many people also believe their thinking is sharper. Quite the opposite has been reported with marijuana.
That’s not to say that everyone will have the same ‘high’ or experience with delta-8 products. Your experience can depend on many things, including how much THC is present in your product of choice.
When you purchase any CBD oils and other products from reputable stockists in Texas, you can rest assured that they are all within the 0.03% legal range outlined in the Texas bill.
What Does Delta-8 Feel Like?
It’s only natural to want to know all about a product before you try it for yourself. However, as mentioned above, the effects of delta-8 can often depend on the THC, as well as how your body reacts to it. Everyone has a different experience.
In saying that, a seasoned user and a first-time user can have a noticeably different experience. For example, a first-time user can feel a much more heightened sense of calm than a seasoned user. Those who have consumed other hemp products before may still feel relaxed, but possibly not to the same extent.
How Long Does It Take to Feel the Effects of Delta-8 THC?
No business that stocks of CBD products can say with any accuracy just how long it will take to feel any benefit from whichever products they consume. However, the timeframe can depend on which products you use, such as vape oils, lotions and tinctures, and edibles.
For example, many people using vaping delta-8 oil have felt relief from anxiety and stress in as little as five minutes. Using a lotion or cream with delta-8 may see you experiencing a difference within half an hour. Given the lengthy metabolism timeframe for your digestive system, edibles may take even longer.
Before consuming any delta-8 products, it can be worth talking to your local business that carries delta-8 products. They may have some recommendations based on how quickly you would like to see results.
Once you start feeling the effects of delta-8, you may also be wondering how long they take to wear off. This can depend on many things, such as any health conditions you have, your body type, gender, and even your age.
However, most people who consume delta-8 oil and other products notice feelings of euphoria and stress relief for up to five hours, with the effects slowly wearing off over time. Delta-8 can then stay in your system for several days and even up to a week. Some studies show that it may remain in your hair follicles for up to around 90 days.
