How much Delta 8 or Delta 9 should I take

Here is a dosing guide structured around tolerances. Gradually progress through 5-10mg increments to determine your tolerance level. Always prioritize comfort, and allow 4-6 hours before considering additional THC to avoid unfavorable experiences. Let it be known that Delta 8 and 9 are experienced almost identically although Delta 9 can be more powerful. Here at CBD Austin we recommend no more than 1/4th of a gummy as a starting serving size for the average person.

Low Tolerance (Newcomers, sensitive, micro-dosing):

  • Consume 5-10mg of Delta 8/9 THC per session.

  • Wait 1/2 to 2 hours for the onset of effects.

  • If no noticeable effects are observed or desired relief is not achieved, wait 4-6 hours before re-taking 5-10mg.

  • Once you are comfortable with 5-10mg after multiple sessions, and if you desire something more potent, consider working your way up to a medium tolerance.

Medium Tolerance (Casual, semi-experienced, not too strong):

  • Take 10-25mg of Delta 8/9 THC per session.

  • Wait 1/2 to 2 hours for the onset of effects.

  • Allow 4-6 hours before considering additional consumption to avoid an overwhelming experience.

  • Adjust session strength in 5-10mg increments (either lower or higher) to find the ideal dosage.

  • If desired effects are not reached, and relief is still inadequate, consider the possibility of having a high tolerance.

High Tolerance (Every day, experienced, high strength):

  • Consume 25mg-100mg+ of Delta 8/9 THC per session.

  • Wait 1/2 to 2 hours for the onset of effects.

  • This recommendation is for experienced individuals seeking maximum potency.

  • High-tolerance individuals may find their ideal dosage in the range of 100mg+; however, newcomers or casual THC users are discouraged from starting with such high doses.

  • Personal trial and error, coupled with a gradual relationship-building approach with THC, is essential to finding what works best for you.

What is Delta 8 / 9 THC? Delta-8/9 THC is a psychoactive cannabinoid known for binding with and stimulating endocannabinoid receptors, producing the noticeable effects associated with cannabis, including euphoria and psychoactive sensations.

Is Hemp-Derived THC Different Than Cannabis-Derived THC? No, there is no difference. Hemp is a legal distinction, not a physical one. Hemp is a form of cannabis grown under the 0.3% Delta-8/9 THC limit, usually cultivated for cannabinoids like CBDA, CBGA, or THCA. Delta-9 THC, THCA, CBDA, and CBDGA are all naturally-occurring phytocannabinoids found in various cannabis strains, offering the same effects, relief, and benefits, regardless of the source.

How is this legal? Delta-8/9 THC, despite being a classic form of THC, is legal under certain conditions. Hemp, classified as cannabis containing under 0.3% Delta-8/9 THC on a dry weight basis, can have its Delta-8/9 THC extracted and used like any other cannabinoid. Compliance is key, and compliant hemp products must adhere to the 0.3% Delta-8/9 THC limit to be federally legal.
