What To Do If You Get Too High On Delta 8

Delta-8 (aka Diet Delta-9 or Delta-9 Lite) is known for being the lighter, milder version of Delta-9 THC. Most people find that it delivers a less intense high than its counterpart, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get high on Delta-8. In fact, underestimating its effectiveness could even cause you to get too high on Delta-8! Don’t worry, though. In the event that you overdo it, Black Tie CBD has you covered. We’ve put together 5 things to do if you get too high on Delta-8 products.

Stay Calm

We know this can be tough, especially when you’re already feeling the effects of the Delta-8. Side effects of feeling too high may be increased worry and paranoia, which are unsettling but not dire. The most important thing to do if you get too high on Delta-8 is to remember that you are okay. Do your best to stay calm; put on some relaxing music or a TV show you can zone out to. The calmer you are, the sooner you’ll start to see the excessive high from Delta-8 begin to dissipate. 


Staying hydrated is not a cure-all, but it can do wonders for preventing you from getting too high on Delta-8 in the first place. The same goes for most substances. The more water you drink prior to and while consuming a substance, the less intense the effects will probably be. Drinking water and staying hydrated in general is one of the best ways to help balance out the psychoactive effects of Delta-8 to reduce the high you’re feeling.

Sleep it Off

Sometimes a good nap is all you need to counteract the effects of being too high from Delta-8. Sleep lets time pass without your mind running a mile a minute, which should give the Delta-8 time to wear off. Keep in mind, however, that if you’re feeling anxious or paranoid, falling asleep could be challenging.

Take a Bath or a Shower

Hopping in the shower could be a good way to sober you up quickly if you found that you overdid it on Delta-8 THC. While a cold shower may not be pleasant, the shock could put you back into a more coherent mental state. Alternatively, if you’re looking for a more relaxing way to pass the time, try a bath! Mary’s Nutritionals Bath Bombs are made with activated hemp extract, which may help counteract the effects of Delta-8.

Use CBD Products

If taking a bath isn’t your thing but you still want to use CBD, try taking an edible. When taken at the right time after consuming Delta-8, certain CBD products may help alleviate an excessive high. Edibles like CBN Fruit Snacks contain NANO Water Soluble CBD, which has a smaller particle size than the CBD found in extracted hemp oil or isolate. The smaller size particles make it easier for the body to absorb more CBD to maximize the amount you take in. As always, make sure to exercise caution when taking these products. Do not operate heavy machinery or any vehicles.  

Final Thoughts 

While it is certainly possible to get too high on Delta-8, it’s important to remember that this is uncommon. Additionally, even if you do get too high, it won’t be to the point of overdosing. The negative reactions and feelings you may be having are valid, but it is highly unlikely that they will become medical emergencies as long as you stay calm and follow our tips above.
