Yes, Delta 8 THC can get you high. Similar to Delta 9 THC, Delta 8 THC will offer a “high” effect; however, most users report a more mild high with less anxiety and paranoia.
Delta 8 THC provides therapeutic benefits and some mild psychotropic effects. Most users report feeling more clear and calm, but the outcome can vary.
Edibles have a much different effect than smokable forms like vapes or wax and can take several hours to take full effect and may last the better part of a day. If taken late at night, many users report they can still feel the effects the next morning.
Let’s take a closer look at Delta 8 THC and some of its effects.
What Might You Feel?
Users of Delta 8 THC have reported feeling clear, less anxious, and a less sedative high. Most users report feeling very mellow. When users compare the Delta 8 THC high to a marijuana high, they experience less anxiety.
Many people prefer to choose Delta 8 THC over regular marijuana. Often, users report that the high from marijuana makes them feel like they are not in control, whereas Delta 8 THC has the opposite effect. Users feel very much in control of their bodies.
Why Is It Not the Same As A Regular Marijuana High?
Delta 8 THC will not give you the same high as marijuana, but there are some similarities. It is a THC, but it is not Delta-9. Delta 8 THC comes from hemp, which has different properties than marijuana.
This THC contains the 8th carbon bond from hemp, not the 9th, making it less potent. Hemp has over 100 natural compounds known as phytocannabinoids. Delta 8 is the secondary cannabinoid. You do not get the typical anxious racing mind that comes with a marijuana high.
Is the High From Delta 8 THC the Same for Everyone?
No, the high from Delta 8 THC is not the same for everyone, but users state that there are many similarities in how they feel. You will still feel like yourself, only a much better version of yourself.
What First-Time Users May Experience
First-time users refer to those who have never gotten high from marijuana before. You don’t have anything to compare it to, so it may seem a bit intense.
You may not feel anything, or it can hit pretty hard, everyone is different. We suggest starting with low dose around 5-10MG. Users may feel a slightly sedated body high without extreme mental stimulation. Be sure to start slow; your tolerance will be low.
What Experienced Users May Feel
If you have used marijuana before, you may have built up a tolerance, so Delta 8 THC may not hit as hard. It tends to be less of a potent type of THC. If you are looking for a more mellow high, then this product is for you.
