Picking the Right Strain and Delta 8 Product for You
We get it — delta 8 THC is fresh and exciting. It’s a different way to relax and reach a new high. However, finding a product that helps you achieve the experience you’re looking for may be overwhelming. But, luckily, picking the right strain and delta 8 product for you is possible with this guide.
What are the different delta 8 strains?
Let’s set something straight: delta 8 itself does not technically have different strains. It is an isolated component of the hemp plant. In some cases, it can also be derived from CBG directly, also known as “The Mother of All Cannabinoids.” However, much like delta 9 THC products, delta 8 THC can still contain terpenes and profiles of popular strains. Here are some further benefits of the different strains and delta 8.
If you’re new to the concept, we break it down in simple terms below. Strains and their origin can get pretty complex, so we encourage you to do research about each one if you’re interested. For a basic understanding, though, you only need to know the difference between Indicas, Sativas, and Hybrids.
Indica strains are known to provide more intense, full-body calming effects. They’re great to enjoy on a night in (or lazy afternoon). To maximize your relaxation experience, we recommend choosing an Indica vape or preroll. These options will also produce some of the quickest results so you can kick back and relax.

Sativa strains, on the other hand, will still offer calming effects for your mind and body. However, they will likely provide more of an effect on your overall mood and temperament. You can enjoy Sativas in a variety of ways. We recommend a disposable vape, especially if you want to enjoy delta 8 in a social setting.

Hybrid strains offer the best of both worlds and combine Indicas and Sativas in a wide range of ways. Depending on the formulation or strain, you may experience more effects in your body or your mind. For full details about Hybrid profiles, be sure to research the specific strain. For example, this distillate featuring the Gelato strain is a popular Hybrid. Gelato’s trademark creamy-sweet berry flavor can also be enjoyed in other ways, such as with cartridges or disposables.

How do different delta 8 products work?
Another thing you should consider when picking the right strain and delta 8 product for you is how quickly or intensely you prefer to be affected. Like any application of cannabis, such as CBD, different products take a different amount of time to go to work. The product type will also interact with each person’s body in a unique way. For example, not everyone has the same body type, metabolism, or other vitals on a given day. It may take some trial and error to determine your favorite.
In brief, vaping, inhaling, or smoking anything will go to work the quickest. The same goes for distillates you inhale or apply to other products. Tinctures are also pretty fast-acting if you take them properly. The quickest way for a tincture to go to work is by taking it sublingually, or placing the oil under your tongue and waiting about a minute before swallowing. Finally, edibles take a bit longer to go to work, but that doesn’t make them any less fun. Just be mindful that you won’t feel the full effects until an hour or so after taking them. Be patient before you increase your dosage. You can learn more about the types of delta 8 products in this post.
