What Does Delta-8 Feel Like (And Will It Make You High?)

by | May 17, 2024

For those in the know, Delta-8 has emerged as the new darling of the cannabis world, praised as an accessible alternative to its more well-known cousin, Delta 9 THC. With its appealing combination of health benefits and legal status in many areas, interest in Delta 8’s effects is growing fast.

In this article, we’ll cover the sensations you can expect when consuming Delta-8 THC, so you can decide if it’s right for you.

What to Expect With Delta-8

If you’re anything like me, regular Delta 9 THC can be hit or miss – sometimes it feels great, but most of the time it’s just a one-way ticket to an anxiety meltdown. If you already struggle with anxiety, then you probably know how frustrating it can be to find regular THC so hard to predict.

And after so many bad experiences, trying anything new can feel super risky. But that’s where Delta-8 comes in.

Unlike Delta 9, Delta 8 THC is overall less likely to cause anxiety or paranoia, making it a preferred choice for those sensitive to THC’s psychoactive effects. While the experience can still vary from person to person, most people report feeling a gentle euphoria and relaxation, with heightened senses and a slight increase in creativity.

This is primarily because its psychoactive effects are milder compared to Delta 9, resulting in a more subtle and enjoyable body high, without the foggy head effects and anxiety.

So if you’re looking for an alternative that still gives you that nice relaxation feeling but without the paranoia, Delta 8 is a great choice.

Will Delta-8 THC Make You High?

The short answer is yes, Delta-8 will get you high. However, users across the board have reported that it’s a “clear headed” and “lighter” high. Because it’s also 50% less potent than regular THC, it’s perfect if you’re seeking a less intense experience that doesn’t leave you feeling zoned out.

The stronger emphasis on the body high means you can expect to feel muscle relaxation, relief from chronic pain, and even improved sleep and mood.

If you’re worried about how Delta-8 will effect you, you can always just start out with a very low dose, such as 5 mg, and work up from there until you reach the desired effect. Don’t forget to stay hydrated, eat a balanced diet, and avoid mixing Delta-8 with alcohol or other substances to reduce the risk of adverse effects.

Is Delta-8 Safe To Use Daily?

Although scientific research is still in the early stages, the answer to this can vary widely depending on the person, their history with cannabis use, and the quality of Delta-8 they consume. It’s important to make sure your delta-8 is from a reputable supplier, and if they supply lab reports, all the better.

At THC Hemp Spot, we provide a detailed lab report with all of our products.

The best advice is to start small to see how you feel. If you want to be extra careful, set aside a dedicated day to yourself where you can experience the effects without having to worry about other responsibilities. If you find no adverse effects from a low dose, slowly increase it over time to allow your body to adjust.

It’s good to keep in mind, however, that just like regular Delta-9 THC, use by those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or those with serious mental health conditions carries higher risks.

But for healthy adults with no serious medical conditions, Delta-8 has the potential to be a great alternative to regular THC.

Wrap Up:

So, should you try Delta-8? If you are prone to anxiety and want to experience the relaxation benefits of cannabis without the risk of increased anxiety, than Delta-8 can be a godsend.

Studies have shown that the vast majority of users report feelings of reduced anxiety, a relaxed bodily sensation, and an overall “clear headed” high. Because of Delta-8’s relaxation effects on the body, it can also be a good choice for those with sleep issues or chronic pain.
