Delta-8 vape carts are taking the THC industry by storm. With many users reporting that a Delta-8 high is more clear, productive, and comes with less paranoia than its Delta-9 alternative, we have seen interest in Delta-8 vape carts skyrocket.
In this article, we'll discuss a recommended dosing of Delta-8 vape carts for new users.
How to time your Delta-8 vape cart high
The real beauty of smoking Delta 8 Vape Carts is that you can dial in your dose quickly.
After consuming an edible, you will likely need to “wait” for 45-90 minutes to feel full effects. However, using a vape will likely give you instantaneous effects.
How long does a Delta-8 vape high last?
Users can expect a Delta-8 vape high to last anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours from your last hit. This number will depend on a variety of factors, including how much you smoked, your individual tolerance, and any other intoxicants (like alcohol) in your system that may amplify your high feeling.
The high from a Delta-8 vape cart is usually much shorter than the high that comes with a Delta-8 edible. An edible high can last for hours and hours.
The length of a vape high is appealing to many Delta-8 users as you have a bit more control over how long you are high by controlling how much you smoke, and when.
Tips for new Delta-8 vape users
When it comes to taking Delta-8 for the first time, vapes can be the most clear-cut option in terms of evaluating whether Delta-8 THC is a good choice for you.
Take 1 hit. See what your tolerance is like and experiment over time increments that you're comfortable with.
Here are some things to consider as new user so you don't over-do it:
- How do you feel after one puff?
- How do you feel after 30 minutes with one puff?
- How do you feel after two puffs at the same time?
- How do you feel after waiting a couple of hours between puffs?
- How does a large puff feel?
- How does a shallow puff feel?
How it feels will depend entirely on your body. That’s what anything is like, right? Even coffee. Some users can have a couple sips and get the jitters. Others need 3 cups and maybe an espresso shot.
What is the ideal dosing for Delta-8 vape carts?
The thing about carts is that while you have reasonable control over each “hit”, it’s difficult to determine the amount of mg’s each puff has and a recommended dose.
Say, for example, you have an 800mg cart.
For one user it might last 150 puffs.
Another user might be 100.
And another user might be 50 if they are taking some heavy, long drags.
So when attempting to break a dosage down by the ideal mg for each puff, you can see that there are too many variables to calculate it. Everyone will puff at a different rate. And vapes don't currently allow for precise dosing.
Our suggestion? Experiment. You can take fewer hits, smaller drags, and see how it effects you.
Some users have said that just one hit does the trick for them, others 3, 5 and so forth.
Like Delta 9 THC (marijuana), the more you take, the more intense the effect will be and the longer it will keep you in that state.
Ready to give Delta-8 a try?
So our advice? Take it slow if you’re a first time user! Try it out for yourself and see what works for your schedule and your body. You may find that taking less during the day leads to a more energized and clear-headed high while taking more at night allows you to sleep better.
