If you’re new to delta 8, you may have a hard time catching up with all the exciting products already available. When it comes to which delta 8 product is best, and which product will be best for you, there are a few unique things to consider.
Have you tried CBD or THC?
Maybe this question caught you off-guard. However, if you know a little bit about delta 8 THC, you should know it’s related to both CBD and THC – delta 9 THC that is. Delta 8 THC is also derived from the hemp plant like CBD and THC. However, the difference is, the isolation and extraction process has to be a bit more sophisticated since delta 8 THC does not naturally occur at high levels. Delta 8 THC is not only related to CBD. In fact, it’s almost identical in nature to delta 9 THC, so it is what’s called an isomer of THC.
How delta 8 compares
You should also know that delta 8 THC falls in between CBD and THC in terms of noticeable effects on the body. We’re not suggesting that CBD is weak and that THC is that much stronger. However, it comes down to formulations of each product as well as the strain of hemp it was derived from. As a general rule, however, keep the following in mind:
- CBD is not psychoactive and can be formulated to be very mild. This is typically because it contains less than 0.3% THC for it to be federally legal.
- Delta 8 THC is psychoactive and is said to produce a calming, uplifting high that’s milder than delta 9 THC. It must also contain less than 0.3% THC content to be federally legal.
- Delta 9 THC, or commonly, “THC,” produces the strongest effects. It’s not only psychoactive, but it is so much so that it produces both effects on the mind and body — which can be beneficial.
General advice about cannabis products
If you’re not aware of how cannabis or hemp affects you, it’s not necessarily advisable to start with a strong THC product. That being said, it is a bit easier to access CBD and delta 8 products to get you started. After all, both are federally legal as long as they have less than 0.3% THC. It’s common for people who haven’t found relief with CBD to then try delta 8. CBD does have multifaceted benefits for things like pain and anxiety. However, it does sometimes take longer for certain people to find the dosage that’s right for them.

Edibles packed with delta 8
Though we can’t pick a favorite out of the types of delta 8 THC products, edibles are up there (and they’ll get you up there, with some patience). Edibles, particularly gummies, often carry a good amount of intrigue. For one thing, edibles can take a bit longer to kick in, so use them wisely before upping your dose. They also offer some pretty delicious flavors, too, so it’ll definitely feel like a treat at the end of a long day. Shop our wide selection of high-quality delta 8 gummies and edibles here.
Delta 8 tinctures
Just like the popularized CBD tinctures, THC and delta 8 THC can be enjoyed as tinctures, too. Tinctures, though not for everyone, are another quick way to enjoy the effects of delta 8. And, many tinctures offer a dose of healthy oils rich in omega fatty acids your body needs. You shop our collection of tinctures here.
Delta 8 distillate is a versatile product that can add the power of delta 8 in a potent way. For example, these prerolls feature delta 8 distillate. Delivered in syringes, distillate’s THC content is already activated, unlike other options that require heat. That being said, you can enjoy distillate in a vape, cook with it, or enjoy it as a dab. It’s some of the most bang for your buck. You can shop our collection of delta 8 distillate here.
Prerolls and flower

How you plan to use delta 8
We really meant it when we said we have the largest selection of delta 8 products. If you’re still not feeling sure about which product is best for you, consider how you’d like to experience delta 8.
Vaping or smoking
Breathing often coincides with mindfulness and stress-relief and can bring you both peace and clarity. Furthermore, inhalation (smoking or vaping) is one of the quickest ways to enjoy the effects of cannabis. Plus, it can be an enjoyable addition to do so socially. You can also rest assured that vape products offered on our site only feature the purest plant-derived ingredients and are lab tested accordingly. You can access test results for any product under the LAB RESULTS & ANALYSIS tab on each respective product page.
Edible treats take some time to kick in. If you’re not in a rush for your delta 8 THC to start working it’s magic or have a few hours to kill, you’ll love edibles. Not to mention, they taste like a treat, too. Keep in mind that since they take some time to kick in, you may need to take less product than you think to achieve your desired results. Don’t double-up before you’re sure!
Mind you, tinctures will offer some of the fastest results when taken properly. The best way to take tinctures is sublingually, or under the tongue. You should let the oil sit here for about a minute before swallowing. It will act quickly via the large nerve, known as the sublingual nerve, and the series of blood vessels under the tongue.
