The short answer to this question depends on who you are buying the gummies from. While Delta-8 should have enough of it to be beneficial, Delta 9 THC on the other hand, is considered a psychoactive compound, which is why the FDA mandates not having over 0.03% of Delta 9 THC in a product. That said, some manufacturers may skirt the law and have higher levels of THC, content that isn’t identified or certified by third-party labs.
Here is a brief list of our organic hemp gummies/products and the amounts of Delta 8 THC in them. Note, that all our products have less than 0.03% Delta 9 THC. Furthermore, these have been tested by the finest labs and aren’t just approximates.
• Gummie Bears – 25mg Delta 8 THC content
• Sour worms – 50mg Delta 8 THC content
• Peach rings – 100mg Delta 8 THC content
• Apple rings – 100mg Delta 8 THC content

• Vegan sour squares – 28.5mg Delta 8 THC content
• Banana pieces – 40mg Delta 8 THC content

In other words, our products have the legal amount of Delta 9 THC in them while having enough Delta-8 THC to ensure that they are beneficial for anyone taking them for therapeutic purposes. Furthermore, these are free from toxic chemicals often a byproduct of insecticide use.
How Much Delta-8 Should You Consume?
The Delta 8 THC industry is rapidly evolving, and there are many brands that have begun manufacturing and selling D8 products. There are also available in various formats, mainly catering to consumers of all types.
Research conducted over the years has allowed us to better understand the mechanisms involved with terpenes, cannabinoids, and other cannabis plant derivatives. Delta 8 is now a major part of many products, including natural fruit flavors gummies, but also vape cartridges, capsules, tinctures, etc.
That said, the question we often get asked is how much delta 8 should be consumed? Is there an unsafe level of delta 8? However, to answer this question, it is important to understand that there isn’t a perfect delta 8 THC dosage meant for everyone. Everybody is different, and what may probably work for you may not work for your friend. Also, what is defined as “satisfying results” may also vary.
Is Delta 8 THC Dosage the Same As CBD Dosage?
While CBD and Delta 8 THC are both extracted from cannabis, the assumption is that CBD dosage and delta 8 THC dosages will be the same. While you can use the same dosage, the main question is, does it make sense to do it?
While at present, there aren’t any studies that show a direct relation between consuming Delta 8 THC and toxicity levels in humans, generally, the standard used by CBD may not apply to THC. While Delta 8 THC can be subtly intoxicating for many people, changing their sensory perception brought on by the so-called “high,” leading to cognitive impairment, CBD isn’t intoxicating, even in the least bit.
The effects produced by delta 8 effects the body differently compared to delta 9, for instance. That’s why the action on the brain is very different. So, while Delta 8 in enough quantities can get you high, it isn’t half as strong as Delta 9, though users report that psychoactive buzz. So, you shouldn’t assume that using both products will bring about the same effects.
If you are highly sensitive to delta 9 THC, start out using a low dose and gradually raise it. That way, you can find what approach offers the most benefit minus any adverse effects.
Overdosing on Delta-8 THC – Is It Possible?
Generally speaking, cannabinoids aren’t proven or shown to interact with the brain stem responsible for respiratory functions, leading to death. However, for liver toxicity to be triggered, around 50 grams of pure THC would need to be injected. That’s not something that most people will do when using cannabis or related products. Nobody, in fact, injects weed.
However, you can end up with more than enough delta 8 THC in your body, which may cause uncomfortable sensations. Though most people report deep relaxation and sedation, with others reporting dizziness and confusion, half of what users of Delta 9 THC may experience. The feeling of anxiety is also rare amongst delta 8 THC users.
There may be some other side effects of cannabis use, such as red eyes, dry mouth, and munchies. Assessments of Delta 8 THC use at high doses found that it induces up to just 70% of the high caused by Delta 9 THC. Regular use of a gummy here and there, the most you can expect to feel is an elevation of mood and relief from pain, vomiting, and nausea.
What you feel from consuming delta 8 THC will depend on the dosage. Lower doses will increase energy levels, though higher dosages will, for lack of a better word, couch lock you! That’s why the products you use should have the levels of D8 as stated, which is only possible via independent lab tests.
How Does Delta 8 THC Potency Work Based On Independent Lab Testing?
According to studies, there are two main factors to consider when choosing an optimal delta 8 dosages. For starters is the product’s potency, and the second is the amount of D8 per milligram.
It is known that various companies producing Delta 8 provide it in varying strengths, and that’s included in various size products. Take delta 8 tinctures, for instance, which are sold in 30 ml bottles, but there are also 60 ml bottles. The same applies to vapes, gummies, and various other derivative-based products.
The best way to determine the milligram requirement of active delta 8 THC in one serving is to divide the total milligram by the product’s size.
For instance, if you have a 1000 mg delta 8 THC tincture in a 60 ml bottle, you divide 1000 by 60, leaving you with 16.6 mg of delta 8 per 1ml. The quantity is enough to cause a moderate high, even in seasoned users. However, be very cautious if you have this tincture at home but have previously never consumed delta 8 THC.
Our products usually, most of which are comprised of gummies, have a fixed dose of delta 8 THC per serving. They are also made from 100% organic ingredients. We also don’t use artificial food coloring to ensure that these are the finest gummies. That means there is no measuring needed. You just need to consume the gummies you have to, to meet your dosage needs.
Delta 8 General Dosage Guideline Chart
• Basic Dosage Tier – People who have never taken Delta 8 will want to start with 5mg and work their way up to 15 mg per dose.
• Secondary Tier – Usually people who have occasionally used Delta 8. Dosages can start at 15 mg and go up to 45mg per serving.
• Advanced tier – Daily delta 8 users. The dose can be anything up to 150mg per serving.
It is important to outline that the chart above refers to delta 8 dosages of a tincture, but it applies across gummies and other products. Think of delta 8 THC as being half as strong as Delta 9 THC, which is why you are not going to be hit hard, and it is also why it is legal for sale as per federal law. That said, it isn’t something users should approach with a carefree attitude.
There is such a thing as too much delta 8 THC, which is why the chart above is a good way to figure out your optimal dose. It is also meant to ensure that you don’t overdose on it.
Delta 8 THC Gummies – Sour Green Apple Candy Dosage
When consuming edible gummies imbued with delta 8 THC, the amount of THC in them will vary. The majority of gummies have between 10-40mg of delta 8 THC per gummy. Most people will consider 10mg a pretty good dose, especially if this is their first time-consuming THD. However, 40mg is a good dose for heavyweight or large people. Also, those with high tolerances will find that 40mg is a pretty good dose.
On the other hand, our gummies have varying amounts of Delta 8 THC, depending on what you buy. Take, for instance, our Sour Worms, which have around 25mg of Delta 8 THC. Vegan Sour Squares have 40mg per gummy. We added a complete list of the amount of Delta 8 THC for some of our most popular gummies at the beginning of the article.
We advise that you wait for up to 20 hours after taking a single gummy, giving it enough time to work on your body and for the effects of its consumption to surface. Once you feel comfortable taking that amount, you can up the dosage slightly by taking another.
If you have never consumed delta 8 products we’d even advise that you start with half a gummy. Speaking of which our gummies are made from only natural ingredients, ensuring they are beneficial with the lowest probability of adverse effects if any.
Final Word About Delta 8 THC Consumption
We know that many people may find that determining the right delta 8 THC dosage challenging if this is their first time encountering the product. However, it is important to understand how they work in the body, and the bioavailability of various formats like gummies, and the duration of their effects.
If you want the best dosage precision, then choose tinctures. But it is very easy to go wrong with tinctures too and overdose. However, if you want to feel that “high” sooner rather than later, vapes are the way to go since it injects THC directly into your bloodstream. But like all hemp products, we advise caution with every approach.
Gummies happen to be the best choice for the majority of people mainly because of the consistency and ease at which anybody can get their dose of Delta 8 THC.
The dosage patterns and calculations can be used as a guide to ensure that you get the most from your use of our THC gummies. That said, our customer service team is here to answer any questions you might have.
