Here's another question that we're asked almost daily: 'What's the best time of the day that I can take Delta-8 THC?" The simple answer is this: ANY TIME!
Delta-8 can be used at any point in the day or night and offer benefits depending on what you're using it for. In fact, depending on what time you take it, and what the activity at hand is that would more or less make or break your experience. So let's dive in and see how exactly you can work all of our Delta-8 THC-infused Eighty Six Brand products into your daily routine.
Wake N' Bake for Productivity?
Now you might be thinking - how in the world can anyone hope to be productive through the classic Wake N' Bake concept of toking up in the morning? Again, depending on what particular product you take, you absolutely can be productive in the morning through a Wake N' Bake exercise!
Opting for say, the Berry Slush Delta-8 THC Vape Cartridge and taking a lower dose can deliver the energy and focus you need to calm those nerves while giving you a jolt of creative energy to dominate your mornings. The sweet and subtle strawberry flavor also pairs well with a light breakfast and coffee which can further offset some of the negative side effects of caffeine such as the jitters and anxiety!
What Time Is Best for Overall Enjoyment?
This is an easy one - if you're looking to enjoy Delta-8 for overall enjoyment, there is no time better than any time you choose. You can take your favorite Eighty Six Vape Cartridge or Gummies flavor whenever you feel like!
It's important to note, however, that Eighty Six Brand and the rest of society at large definitely doesn't want you to be high and attempting to drive or operate machinery. Since Delta-8 is psychotropic and you will most likely feel high from it, it's best you keep yourself and others safe by refraining from dosing up on your favorite products then heading out. Please, please, please be safe about it!
What About for Times of Stress?
Let's be real - life can be a whole thing most of the time. And a lot of us here at Eighty Six Brand recognize the usefulness Delta-8 can play in living life a little less stressed out. Granted, people handle and manage stress differently, but it can be widely regarded as an effective tool in using Delta-8 to help curb the feelings of stress. Some "stressful" activities can range from giving a presentation, turning in something that can literally make or break your career, or really, just dealing with the unforeseen crises that pop up when simply existing in life.
While it isn't always possible to essentially predict when you'd be in a heightened state of stress, we still recommend you try to be proactive about it. Especially if you choose to take one of our Delta-8 Gummies to help calm those nerves down. Since you are essentially eating the Delta-8, your body would need time to digest the gummy and for it to pass through your liver before its effects are felt. This can take up to two hours, so again, be mindful of this!
Another option you can take is to vape Delta-8. We have nine flavors spread across the three major cannabis categories: indica, sativa, and hybrid. When you inhale Delta-8, you pass the digestion and liver process entirely. As a result, the effects are experienced a lot quicker, albeit, it doesn't last as long, but at least it's on-demand relief to help those stressful situations pass by a little easier!
Taking Delta-8 to Sleep
If we had to choose one time of the day to take Delta-8, we'd unanimously vote to take it for sleeping. Similar to traditional Delta-9, Delta-8 is a downer substance. Meaning, it possesses relaxation properties that make it an easy to just relax and sink into a nice and restful slumber.
An ideal evening sesh usually starts about 2 to 3 hours before your bedtime. Consider opting for the Midnight Melon Delta-8 Gummies. Like we explained above, taking edibles needs to be digested before its effects are experienced throughout your body. The two or so hours that are needed for that distribution is paid back in a more intense and longer-lasting Delta-8 experience. So eat a few gummies, tuck yourself in, and get ready for some wild dreams!
When Should You NOT Take Delta-8?
As much as we'd love to sign on to the fact that Delta-8 can be used all day, everyday, any time of the day, there are a few conditions where you should not take it.
1. If You're Going to Drive
As we said above, Delta-8 is a psychotropic substance. Similar to traditional Delta-9 THC products, it gets you high, albeit, it's a less-intense high, it still impairs your ability to give the road and everyone on it your full undivided attention. And in case you didn't know - driving under the influence of anything is illegal. So let's be on the right side of the law here and just avoid the situation altogether.
Never use Delta-8 if you're going to need to drive or operate machinery in the next 3 to 6 hours. Remember, everyone processes Delta-8 differently, so give yourself quite a bit of time to be 100% sober before getting into the driver's seat.
2. If You're Using Any Medications
Delta-8 THC is a safe compound, but some medications can cause negative reactions, increasing the risk of danger. There's a long list of potential medications that can interact with Delta-8. If you are actively prescribed medication, consider consulting with your doctor prior to you taking Delta-8. Your doctor should be able to cross-reference your prescriptions with THC to determine the level of risk.
A few examples of medications that are likely to interact with Delta-8 include:
- Blood Pressure Medications
- Blood Thinners
- Heart Medications
- Prescription painkillers
- Anti-Anxiety medications
- Anti-epileptic medications
When it comes to determining when Delta-8 is the move, chances are, any time of the day or night works! Depending on what you're looking to do shortly after dosing, the incorporation of Delta-8 can make or break the experience. For example, if you're looking to use it to kickstart your day, consider taking a lower dose! Conversely, if it's for sleep, be sure to take it a few hours before bed. In either scenario, using Delta-8 throughout your day is an incredibly life-changing experience. Whichever time you choose, it'll be a great time from start to finish!
