Dosage guide for hemp derived delta 8

Producers are calculating that delta-8 is less than half as strong as regular THC, so a 25mg delta-8 gummy might equate to the effects of a 10mg THC gummy. 

As with any cannabis product, the chemical profile of the cannabis, your body’s chemistry, your tolerance level, your set and setting, and the amount you take all affect how you will feel. 

There is no such thing as the best delta 8 THC dosage for everyone. Everybody is different and what works for your friend may not necessarily work for you — and vice versa.

There are also other factors to consider, such as:

  1. Body mass – in essence, those with a greater body mass need higher doses than smaller users.
  2. Delta 8 THC tolerance – the tolerance to delta 8 THC increases rapidly, so you need to keep it under the radar. Some people have a naturally higher tolerance to certain compounds. If you have a high tolerance to delta 9 THC, the chances are that your tolerance to delta 8 will reflect that.
  3. Your goals – what is your purpose for using delta 8 THC?
