How to Choose the Best Delta-8 THC Edibles

Sometimes, a guide is meant to help you narrow in on the ideal product for you. When you look at the majority of guides on Delta-8 edibles, though, you’re likely to find most of them are related to gummies alone. We want to set the bar a little higher and offer up something that ventures further into the world of edibles. If you’re not a fan of gummies, there are so many other types of Delta-8 edibles to enjoy. In this guide, we’re going to dive into how to choose the best Delta-8 THC edibles for you!

What is Delta-8 THC?

If you want all the details, we have a whole section called “What is Delta-8 THC?” To save you time, though, we’ll offer a quick summary! Delta-8 THC is a cannabinoid, just like CBD and Delta-9 THC. Naturally occurring in cannabis plants, Delta-8 is a less potent analog of traditional Delta-9 THC. It’s found in trace amounts in hemp plants and has grown massively in popularity over the past few years due to the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill that effectively made all derivatives of hemp legal.

Being a variety of THC, Delta-8 is closely related to Delta-9, which is the primary psychoactive compound in marijuana. Many users rave about how similar Delta-8 can feel to Delta-9 THC. While it’s less potent, it still causes a high and may stimulate other positive effects, depending on the user.

What are Delta-8 THC Edibles?

You likely already know of the classic marijuana edibles that can be made from Delta-9 THC, but our Delta-8 edibles provide a legal alternative. These edibles are made by infusing active Delta-8 THC extract into an edible base, whether that involves gummies, baked goods, or savory snacks. Gummies are a popular option because they’re easy to make and require fewer additives to disguise the hemp taste.

The Best Delta-8 THC Edibles

We understand just how different everyone is, especially when it comes to our taste buds! You might prefer sour gummies, tasty rice krispie treats, or some sweet hard candies. Thankfully, we understood the assignment from the get-go. That’s why we want to help you learn how to choose the best Delta-8 THC edibles for you. After all, we believe everyone deserves to have their sweet tooth satisfied!

How to Choose the Best Edibles

The first step in choosing the best Delta-8 edibles for you is deciding on what flavor and type of edible you enjoy most. Each kind of edible will hit you slightly differently. For example, a small gummy won’t take your stomach very long to digest, allowing the Delta-8 to be absorbed by your body faster. But a delicious rice crispy treat might take a bit longer, giving you more time to prepare for the fun ahead. Hard candies can go both ways. If you choose to suck on them until they dissolve or crunch them up quickly, it will change the way they kick in. Below we’ve listed some of our very best Delta-8 THC edibles for you to explore.

Not Your Mama’s Rice Krispie Treats

Knowing how to choose the best edible starts with what you love. And who doesn’t love a gooey, marshmallowy rice krispie treat? Ours are made with an extra special hit of 50mg of pure concentrated Delta-8 THC extract. Just like Mom used to make, only way more fun. Eighty Six offers three super tasty flavors to choose from, OriginalChocolate, and Rainbow. Bring one to your next party or treat yourself whenever you need a pick-me-up, and you’ll be smiling like a kid again.

It’s Hard to Say No to a Delta-8 Hard Candy

When it comes to choosing the best Delta-8 edibles, you want to look for something unique and delicious — like our new line of hard candies, which each contain 25mg of pure Delta-8 THC that’s been third-party lab tested and certified. What makes hard candies such a unique edible is the fact that you can control how quickly they will hit you. If you choose to suck on a tangy sweet Peach hard candy slowly, the Delta-8 THC will enter your bloodstream directly by going under the tongue, resulting in a faster-acting head high. But should you choose to chomp up a flavorful Root Beer hard candy in three quick bites, it will go through your stomach before being absorbed by the body, leading to a slow-releasing total body high. Either way, you’re in for a guaranteed good time.

Did Somebody Say Caramel Chews?

You heard right. Eighty Six now offers the best Delta-8 edibles in town. Our buttery golden Caramel Chews are the answer to your sweet tooth prayers. Just being delicious isn’t enough for us. We pack 50mg of hemp-derived Delta-8 THC in every piece. Like the hard candies, you can choose just how quickly you want the party to start by either sucking on them or chewing them. The vibe is right no matter how you choose.


Savor the New Gummy Flavor

One of the best ways to choose edibles is by going with flavors that excite you. Our newest collection of Delta-8 THC gummies comes in three bold tastes that are crazy good and super strong. Each gummy is bursting with 50mg of Delta-8 THC. Whether you’re in the mood to chill on a beach and watch a Tropical Sunset, sink your teeth into a juicy ripe Bubba Melon, or go tripping through strawberry fields with our Berry Burst gummies, you’ll be riding happy and high.

Don’t Forget Our Classic Gummies

There’s certainly a reason some of the best Delta-8 THC edibles out there are gummies. That’s why we offer up our hugely popular OG Delta-8 Gummy Series. Citrus Blast, Apple Jade, and Midnight Melon all smack you silly, and the thousands of happy Eighty Six fans are living proof of that! Get yourself a bag and elevate that mind. You’ll thank us in due time.


Choosing the Best Edibles for You

When you learn how to choose the best edibles for yourself, it makes shopping for them online so much easier. Delta-8 THC isn’t hard to find, but it doesn’t always come from the most trusted source. We want to show you what to look for when you’re sorting through the best Delta-8 THC edibles available.

The Process from A-Z

One of the most important things to know before you buy Delta-8 is where the company gets its product. Do they cultivate the hemp themselves? How are they extracting the Delta-8 THC from it? Are their products safe and lab-tested? Each of these questions should be easily answered just by looking at their website.

For example, we try to stay as transparent as possible, no matter where you are in the shopping process. That’s why we have lab reports readily available, a comprehensive FAQ, an active blog, and some of the best customer service representatives answering our phone and email inquiries all day long.

User Reviews & Experiences

Next, you’ll want to check out what other users are saying about their experiences. Can you see reviews for each product on the brand’s website or their social media outlets? A company should make it easy for you to leave a review once you’ve purchased a product.

At Eighty Six, we want to try to accommodate all aspects of our user’s reviews. That’s why product reviews, especially for the edibles that we sell, are proudly displayed on each product page. We also feature several video reviews on our YouTube channel.

Dosage Strength

When you learn how to choose the best edibles, you’ll become especially familiar with dosage strengths. As we mentioned throughout our guide above, our edibles typically contain between 250mg to 500mg of Delta-8 THC per package. Each piece, or serving, usually contains either 25mg, 30mg, or 50mg, depending on the product.

Keep an eye out for brands that boast products with ridiculously high Delta-8 THC levels. While it’s possible to have a product with over 1000mg of Delta-8 THC, it’s more likely that that number isn’t counting Delta-8 on its own. Instead, brands that do this often include the total cannabinoid content in that number, which means that you can’t guarantee you’ll actually get any Delta-8 in the product. Meanwhile, we specify exactly what you’re getting in each of our Delta-8 THC edibles. That’s why they’re the best.
