Truthfully, I expected to feel absolutely nothing when I ate those two gummies. I was ready to hate. But the Smokiez delta-8 gummies experience had me blasting music, dancing around my Airbnb, and punching out sentences that writer’s block had been stifling for over a month.
Reason #2 people are so curious about delta-8 is because it’s supposed to be a much less intense, much more approachable experience than the high you feel from consuming traditional cannabis with THC.
So yes, based on personal experience alone, I’d say that delta-8 gummies do get you high, and that the high is less intense than smoking joints of traditional flower or eating traditional edibles.
By 12pm, the delta-8 high had started to subside, and at 2pm the only lingering effects of the high were dry mouth and dehydration.
Here’s my experience.
Never once did I feel a groggy comedown. Never once did I feel my body succumb to the THC. Instead, I felt productive, motivated, and happy. It was the same type of high I get from consuming strains like Apple Fritter, Super Silver Haze, and Chocolope.
This is opposed to traditional edibles, where it’s only a matter of time before I’m horizontal on the couch with the Roku remote in-hand ready to waste hours of life watching Joe Budden Podcast episodes on YouTube. With delta-8, I popped a few of those bad boys and locked into Google Docs for four straight hours. Ernest Hemingway could never.
Delta-8 is at the center of cannabis conversations these days. It’s advertised as being less intense than a marijuana-induced high, but with a bit more kick than CBD oil.
Although drug tests aren’t a part of my life, I like to know the facts about what I’m consuming.
What You Need To Know Before You Try Delta-8-THC
If you haven’t used marijuana before or don’t like the effects of it, I recommend taking it very slowly with D8. Maybe starting with no more than one-quarter of a gummy to start.
On top of that, it had been several weeks since I’d taken more than a small hit off my cannabis vape pen, so my tolerance was low. Moral of the story: Always read the label first!
At this point, Pure Craft’s Nano Delta-8 Infused Vegan Gummies have been on rotation for several weeks in our household. My SO and I both use D8 differently, and for different reasons. I’m sharing both of our true reactions in this article. Yep, you’re getting a two-for-one delta-8 review. Lucky you!
Here’s how different product types are generally priced:
Since the gummies need to be processed by the liver, the effects take more time to kick in than tinctures and vapes. For some users, they may become noticeable after as long as 2 hours.
