When you're looking to add some "pep in your step," the usual go-to's are coffee, tea, and of course, energy drinks.
So could Delta-8 potentially serve as a hemp-derived substitute for this niche?
That's what we're going to discuss on this page, because in short, there's no simple "yes or no" answer, and there are a variety of factors that you should consider.
Here, we're going to cover:
Consulting your physician
Delta-8's effects & energy
Delta 8 energy considerations
To start things off, we need to make it as straightforward as possible what we mean by "energy."
When we talk about energy, we're talking about a bit of pick-me-up for your day, getting a bit of inspiration for a creative task, or adding a nice tinge of bliss to your day.
We're not talking about a chronic lack of energy that might come from fatigue, depression, insomnia, or other medical conditions.
If you suspect that you have these conditions or any other medical condition that may cause this, it's always best to consult your physician.
Delta-8 THC is a cannabinoid, meaning that it is a compound derived from cannabis (hemp).
Many cannabis enthusiasts have described the effects of Delta-8 as:
Promoting a sense of wellbeing
But, the thing to consider about cannabinoids is that they affect everyone a bit differently.
Some people may find that the effects they experience lean heavier on the uplifting/mildly euphoric end of the spectrum.
That type of person might find it favorable to enjoy products like Delta 8 gummies for energy.
Others might find that they lean more on the "relaxation" end of the spectrum and might not want to take Delta 8 for energy. Instead, you might find that Delta-8 is better for unwinding in the evening.
Understanding how Delta-8 affects you personally is critical for determining if it's right for you to take in this context.
If you're looking to enjoy Delta 8 for energy, there are several key factors that you want to consider.
Coffee, tea, and energy drinks are almost essentials for tackling the morning commute or even long road trips.
However, you should not drive after consuming any Delta-8 THC.
Instead, you might want to opt in to take a Delta-8 for energy by taking a capsule before your morning stroll on a day off or to help "pick you up" before an evening out.
Also, Delta-8 vs. caffeine doesn't have to be so polarizing. You can mix them!
For example, our Natural Flavored Delta-8 Tinctures are perfect for making bulletproof coffee.
Plus, you might enjoy a few drops of our Mint or Berry Tinctures to add a dash of flavor (and bliss) to a cup of tea or maybe a few drops in a can to create a Delta 8 energy drink.
Again, we cannot stress enough that cannabinoids affect everyone a bit differently.
Nonetheless, many hemp enthusiasts have found Delta-8 to be quite complementary to caffeine, finding that it can help mitigate some of caffeine's more "jittery" effects.
And that pretty much covers enjoying Delta-8 for a mellow boost of energy!
