A Beginners' Guide To Delta-8 THC Gummies

Welcome to the world of Black Tie CBD, where new and exciting CBD products are being released every day. Delta-8 THC gained mainstream clout in recent years for being D9’s lighter, more subtle THC friend. Since its introduction to the market, Delta-8 has exploded in popularity. It comes in various forms, including Delta-8 infused hemp flower, Delta8 Vapes, and of course Delta-8 THC gummies.

Never experimented with Delta-8 THC gummies before? You’ve come to the right place. We’ll break down everything you need to know about these tasty edibles so you can fully enjoy them.

What to Know About Delta-8 THC

It’s always good to do a quick overview of any topic at hand, so while we’re at it, let’s give a recap of what there is to know about Delta-8 THC. Delta 8 products come from the Cannabis sativa plant. As the only cannabinoid that contains all six Delta 8 phytocannabinoids in one compound, Delta-8 still offers psychoactive properties, but typically less so than its Delta-9 THC counterpart. It is because of this milder, smoother experience that many people refer to Delta-8 as “Delta-9 Lite.” This makes it perfect for beginners who may be inexperienced with THC products and are just looking to dip their toes into the cannabis waters.

The Benefits of Delta-8 THC Gummies

Delta-8 THC gummies offer all the benefits of other Delta-8 THC products, which may include:

  • Lower stress response
  • Less anxiety
  • Temporary pain relief
  • Increased libido 
  • Improved sleep
  • Mild euphoria
  • …and more!

Additionally, their compact gummy form means Delta-8 THC gummies are convenient and easy to take. All you have to do is chew ½ a gummy (to start), wait 90 minutes, and see if you want more. Edibles are slow-acting, which is nice because they provide a sustained effect over a period of time. Plus, they taste great! You can find a wide variety of Delta-8 THC gummies according to flavor and desired effect. Looking for something uplifting? The Uplift Delta-8 THC Gummies (50 MG) in Mango could do the trick. Maybe you prefer something that will help you wind down after a long work week. The Unwind Delta-8 THC + CBN Gummies could be perfect for you.

Tips for First Timers

If it’s your first time using Delta-8 THC gummies, or edibles/gummies in general, we have a few tips to steer you in the right direction.

First, always remember to start slow. Taking ½ a gummy will be more than enough when you’re not accustomed to the substance. Some people even prefer to start with ¼ of a gummy. We just advise not to take the whole thing at once, as it could make for an experience that’s a bit too strong for your first go.

Secondly, know that you will likely feel some sense of a “high” or euphoria. This differs from CBD gummies and other CBD products. While the “high” won’t be as strong as if you took a Delta-9 THC gummy, it’s still important to know what to expect so you’re not caught off guard. Anticipate feeling more relaxed and a little giddy.

Third, when you’re ready to up your dosage, do so after you’ve waited about 90 minutes. Gummies take a bit of time to kick in, so you won’t know how they’ll affect you fully until after a period of time.

Choosing Delta-8 THC Gummies

There are tons of different flavors, consistencies, and types of Delta-8 THC gummies out there. With so many options, how can you know which ones are the best? The first thing to always do when evaluating any product (be it Delta-8, Delta-9, CBD, CBG, or others) is to make sure that its effects are lab-tested.

At Black Tie CBD, all of our products are analyzed by 3rd party labs. This adds a necessary layer of trust to our customers purchasing our products and verifies that all of our claims are legitimate.
