Tips For Using Delta 8 Products For The First Time

Delta 8 is a cannabinoid that is becoming increasingly popular. It has more profound effects than CBD but is not as intense as THC. You can find many different delta 8 products — like gummies, vape pens, and even capsules. Some people use delta 8 to manage their stress, and others find that it helps with physical symptoms such as joint pain or headaches. Regardless of why you're thinking of using delta 8, there are some tips you should follow the first time or times you use it.

Start with a low dose.

Do not assume you'll need the same amount of delta 8 as when you use CBD or THC. Each cannabinoid is different, and everyone reacts differently to different cannabinoids. As you should do with all cannabinoids, start with a very low dose, and see how you react. If you want stronger effects, take a slightly larger dose next time. Keep working your dose up a tiny bit at a time until you feel the effects you desire. This approach prevents you from taking too much, which could cause side effects like fatigue and brain fog.

Don't plan anything big.

Take delta 8 for the first time on a weekend or on a day when you don't need to get anything too important done. This is important for two reasons. First, it ensures you don't miss anything important if you react to delta 8 more strongly than expected. Second, it gives you a chance to focus on the effects of the delta 8 rather than what you're doing. This will help you better assess the best dose to use and how you react, going forward.

Take it with food.

This mostly applies if you are taking an oral form of delta 8, such as capsules or gummies. Take it with food; a small snack will do. This will help enhance the absorption of the delta 8 so you feel its effects a bit sooner. It will also help prevent an upset stomach. (Some people experience mild to moderate nausea when using delta 8, but generally only if they take it on an empty stomach.) A handful of crackers or nuts is sufficient.

With these tips, you should have a good first-time experience with delta 8. Look for a product that appeals to you, and give it a try. Over time, you'll sort out the right dose and have even better experiences.
