How long does a Delta-8 high last?

Delta-8’s unique features are gaining popularity, despite its limited availability. Its legal status in the United States sets it apart. Delta-8 can be obtained from hemp plants that contain less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC. It’s now incorporated into various products, including gummies and soft gels.

Delta-8 is a derivative of THC, but the duration of its effects can vary between products. A Delta-8 high typically lasts between three to eight hours and may persist in your body for even longer.

So, how long does a Delta-8 high actually last? It can be quite uplifting. Delta-8 offers a milder high compared to its cousin, Delta-9 THC, often referred to as its “nicer” counterpart. You’re less likely to feel glued to your couch or experience anxiety and paranoia. Additionally, you’ll generally be less distracted and have an easier time concentrating.

The duration of a Delta-8 high can range from 2 to 10 hours, but several factors come into play. Personal sensitivity plays a role; newcomers to THC might experience a longer high. Delta-8 products come in various forms, with edibles being a popular choice. The amount of Delta-8 you consume also matters; stronger products tend to prolong the high. Even a small dose can have a more significant impact than expected. Moreover, because everyone metabolizes the drug differently, predicting how long it will remain in your system can be challenging.

It’s important to note that the duration of the high includes a phase-out period. Just because you stop feeling it doesn’t mean Delta-8 isn’t still at work in your body.

What about the longevity of Delta-8 THC gummies? There are two main categories of edibles. Some dissolve in the mouth, while others require complete digestion.

Edibles like brownies or cookies need to be broken down by your body, a process that can take up to eight hours. Many people report that the peak effect is reached around 3-4 hours after consumption.

On the other hand, some edibles are designed to dissolve slowly in the mouth, partially absorbing through the mucous tissues. These can take effect relatively quickly, typically within 15-30 minutes. Their effects may also wear off sooner than traditional edibles, by up to two hours.
