However, users describe it as “much weaker than THC”. And the manufacturers of the few THC delta-8 edibles on the market tend to dose them approximately twice as many mg per dose as THC. This completely unscientifically suggests that delta-8 THC is half as strong as THC. Both delta-8 and delta-10 THC are analogs of THC delta-9 (the THC that is commonly smoked) and belong to the “tetrahydrocannabinols” family together with THCA, THCV and THCP.
Cannabis is one of my remedies for this, and delta-8 has been shown to have the same benefits that I get from smoking a joint and telling me that everything will be fine. That said, normally a 50 mg dose of groceries would make me sleep in a couple of hours, but delta-8 gummies produced a kind of stimulating and energetic experience that comes from waking up and baking a good morning mixed with a good cup of coffee. In an independent analysis of 51 products conducted by CBD Oracle, a research company on cannabis use, 77% had less delta-8 THC than advertised and three-quarters of the products had THC levels higher than those allowed by federal law.
