Is Delta 8 Safe?

Delta 8 is safe when used responsibly and moderately by those 21 years and older. If you are new to hemp, consult your medical provider to determine if it’s ideal for you.

Once you get the green light, start small. Otherwise, you could consume too much, which may lead to feeling “overwhelmed,” but there is very little threat of physical danger.

Before starting a session with D8, ensure all your errands are complete because you cannot operate a vehicle or heavy machinery after consuming THC.

If you are planning to become pregnant, are pregnant, or breastfeeding, you shouldn’t consume Delta 8 THC or other hemp products.

Although child-resistant packages are used, it is not “childproof.”

So before storing your products, make sure it’s in a secure location at all times.

Can People Be Allergic To Delta 8?

If you have experienced allergy symptoms with cannabis or are triggered by pollen, it may be possible to have an allergic reaction to Delta 8.

So if you’re wondering, “Could I have an allergic reaction to Delta 8 gummies?” There’s a possibility, but it’s uncommon.

However, if you have experienced allergies to cannabis, avoid consuming Delta 8 and all other hemp products.

Depending on your medical history, you may be concerned about potentially having an underlying allergy to hemp. If this is the case, consult a doctor before use. 

How Do You Know A Hemp Product Is Safe?

Upon receiving approval from your physician, you start a new journey—finding safe hemp products.

This isn’t a difficult venture, as long as you know what to look for.

When determining if a product is safe, look at the manufacturer.

Ask yourself a few questions:

  • Do customers have easy access to the product lab reports (COAs)?
  • Are the items free of contaminants and heavy metals?
  • Are there customer reviews?
  • Does the manufacturer have a high-quality website?
  • If you need to talk to customer service, is there a way to contact them?

Depending on the answers above, you can gauge the brand's safety and legitimacy.

Can You Take Too Much Delta 8?

Unless you know where your “sweet spot” is, it can be easy to consume too much Delta 8.  

So it’s important not to overdo it because it may lead to “intense feelings” that could be overwhelming.

We recommend starting small and waiting an appropriate duration before reaching for more.

By remaining patient and choosing a small portion, you’ll be able to determine where your “sweet spot” is for future sessions.
