Delta-8 THC is a rapidly growing industry, with numerous brands manufacturing and selling D8 in various formats to cater to a diverse consumer base.
Over the years, our understanding of terpenes, cannabinoids, and other cannabis plant derivatives has deepened. Delta-8 is a key ingredient in various products, including those with natural fruit flavors, vape cartridges, capsules, and tinctures.
The question arises: How much Delta-8 should you consume, and is there a safe level of consumption? It’s important to note that there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. Everyone is different, and what works for one person may not work for another. Additionally, the definition of “satisfactory results” can vary from person to person.
Does CBD dosage and Delta-8 THC dosage have the same effect?
There is a common assumption that since CBD and Delta-8 THC are both cannabis extracts, their dosages would be identical. While it’s possible to use the same dosage, it’s important to consider whether it makes sense to do so.
THC may not adhere to the same dosage standards as CBD. This is because there are no studies demonstrating a direct link between Delta-8 THC consumption and human toxicity. Delta-8 THC, which can lead to cognitive impairment by altering sensory perception, may subtly intoxicate some individuals.
Delta-8 has different effects on the body compared to Delta-9, for example, and the brain reacts differently to these compounds. While Delta-8 can produce a sense of being “high,” it is not as potent as Delta-9, and it’s a mistake to assume that both products have the same effect.
For those who are sensitive, it’s advisable to start with a small dose of Delta-8 THC and gradually increase it to find the most suitable approach while minimizing any adverse effects.
Is it possible to overdose on Delta-8 THC?
There is no evidence to suggest that cannabinoids can cause death by affecting the brain stem responsible for respiratory functions. In fact, extremely high doses of pure THC, around 50 grams, are needed to trigger liver toxicity, and such doses are not typically encountered when using cannabis or similar products. In reality, no one injects cannabis.
Excessive consumption of Delta-8 THC can lead to uncomfortable sensations. Most users report deep relaxation, although some may experience dizziness or confusion. It’s worth noting that these effects are typically less pronounced than what Delta-9 THC users might experience. Delta-8 THC users rarely report anxiety.
