Picking the proper dosage is paramount to a beneficial and enjoyable Delta-8 experience, required dosage will differ from person to person, so some experimentation is recommended. D8 has been shown to provide a high that is 20-30% less potent than THC D9 by dose. Because of this, many products are best with a higher starting dose for those with high tolerance like medicinal users. With a low and slow approach to consumption of a new product, it’s easy to avoid taking one hit too many and experiencing an uncomfortable high. With any new product taste test, we recommend starting with one dose, or one puff. Wait an appropriate amount of time for the peak of the high based on method of consumption, before deciding if desired results have been achieved.
A common dose of edibles for beginners or micro dose users sits in the range of 5-10MG. A dose of this amount will produce mild pain and stress relief, and increased creativity and focus. Edibles can take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours to kick in, with the peak of the high coming in around 30 to 60 minutes and lasting up to twelve hours. An edible high can produce residual effects for up to 24 hours. You can expect a high from inhalables to peak around 5-10 minutes after inhale, with effects lasting 1-3 hours, and lingering effects up to eight.
There are a few factors that determine the length of your high and the amount of time before edibles or inhalables begin working, including weight, metabolism, and eating habits as well as tolerance due to consumption habits. Medicinal or practiced users also benefit from the low and slow approach when it comes to a new product, by taking the initial recommended dose, and following up with additional doses as needed. This way, users can become familiar with the effects of a new product in order to figure out what dose range is the most beneficial.
