Having a good session with weed is becoming increasingly impossible nowadays. Most of the countries are banning the sales of weed as they are found to have adverse health effects as well. The main component in weed that gives the intoxicating effect is delta 9. And this very component is also the reason why it got banned.
This is why alternatives are coming up with the same effects. One of the well-known alternatives to delta 9 weed is delta 8 THC. This has been growing increasingly popular, and that too at higher concentrations. But here are a few things you need to know about delta 8 THC edibles.
Effects Of Delta 8
Delta 8 THC does not give the same effects as that of weed or marijuana. They have a lower effect level. Delta 8 takes much more time to start its intoxicating effect and as well as is much less when compared in strength. This is mainly why they are used by and recommended for beginners.
They have lower intoxication because of the active compound of delta 8. This is slightly different from delta 9 due to the difference in their optical activity.
Drug Test Detects Them
Like any other drug, delta 8 THC are also prone to drug tests. They are easily detected in the blood veins, much like their older brother delta 9. The only difference between them is that delta 8 can show up in their blood veins for about 2-3 weeks. The maximum is 6 weeks in the bloodstream, depending on the concentration used and the person’s capability.
So people are advised to stop inducing these drugs, in any form, at least 2 months before their drug test. You are also advised to have plenty of water. Water helps to flush out the remaining delta 8 present in your veins. So remember to avoid them for two months and then keep yourself hydrated.
Too Many Kinds To Choose From
There are no kinds of delta 8. There is only one and that is obtained from the leaves of cannabis itself. The word ‘kinds’ is referring to the kind of delta 8 THC edibles or the different ways in which you can consume them.
The most common one is the gummies, but you can also go for other alternatives like extract. Each of these edibles will differ in terms of concentration of delta 8 or the flavour.
