The Types of Delta 8: Gummy vs Cart vs Tincture

With multiple Delta 8 products hitting the market, we want to address the benefits of each type and what you may experience from your selected form of delivery.

Based on user reviews, we’ve compiled a list of what we’ve seen to steer you in the right direction.

After all, Delta 8, like Marijuana or CBD, affects everyone differently, which really is the best part!

Let’s break down the use of Delta 8 Gummies/Edibles, Delta 8 Vape Carts, and Delta 8 Tinctures.

Each has different onset times for feeling the effects, as well as duration, and intensity, depending on dose.

Delta 8 Gummies

Delta 8 gummies vary by strength. Typically, you’ll see a total amount (in milligrams) listed for the entire bottle. Other times, the company will break it out by each individual gummy.

At Moonwlkr, our gummies contain 25mg per gummy and have 25 gummies per bottle, meaning the total bottle contains 625mg of Delta 8.

The normal dosage seen from suppliers for gummies/edibles is typically between 10-25mg. 

Your dose will be based on your own tolerance. Luckily, we have a dosage guide that we published based on the feedback from our customers! You can view that here and you’ll be surprised at what they said!

Edibles are arguably the most discreet way of taking Delta 8. Think of it like a vitamin if you will. Pop it in, chew it up, swallow, and you’re good to go.

Keep in mind, when consuming Delta 8 as an edible, you will need to wait anywhere from 30 - 90 minutes to feel its full effects. So take that into account before you dive in for more!

Delta 8 edibles will also leave you feeling high longer than some other Delta 8 products. You should plan to feel high for anywhere from 4-8 hours, from what users have said. So edibles may not be the best choice for those looking for a faster come down.

Delta 8 Vape Cartridges

If you don’t care about being discreet or like the sensation of “smoking something”, carts may be your way to go!

In terms of what users have said, 1-3 puffs may give you the instant Delta 8 effects that you’re looking for.

That’s one of the beauties of carts. It’s the fastest delivery method and releases instantly into your lungs and through your body.

Because of this, it may be easier to control your dose and find what works best for you.

You won’t need to wait for the effects to hit like a Delta 8 edible. Instead, you’ll know quickly if it’s time to step off the gas or let it ride. 

It’s also unlikely to last as long as taking an edible. Depending on the amount of puffs, users have said that the effect can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours from their last hit.

Want more? You simply “take another hit” if you want to continue the effect. 

When you buy Delta 8 carts, you’ll want to look at the total mg content. That represents the amount of Delta 8 from smoking the entire cart.

At Moonwlkr, our Delta 8 carts offer 800mg’s of Delta 8.

Delta 8 Tinctures

If you have looked into CBD, you know what tinctures are all about, and that’s exactly why tinctures have crept into the Delta 8 market.

Tinctures can be discreet in their own way. Especially now that more and more individuals seem to be taking CBD.

However, tinctures are not the most practical form of consumption.

Typically, you’ll take a dropper of the Delta 8 oil (regularly mixed with a carrier oil like MCT or hemp seed extract), apply the tincture under your tongue, and hold it there before swallowing for 60-90 seconds.

You might like to think of tinctures as a kind of middle ground between Delta 8 edibles and vapes.

Users say the effect will be felt in about 15-20 minutes, making it quicker than edibles, but significantly slower than vape.

As far as the duration of effect, users report 4-8 hours depending on dose.

Tinctures may be an option for users who aren’t looking for immediate relief, but may want something that lasts longer than vaping.

Which type of Delta-8 is right for me?

The ideal Delta 8 product will vary from person to person. However, we’ve found that most users prefer to consume Delta-8 THC via edibles and vapes.

The reason is simple...both are at different ends of the spectrum.

Vapes are instantaneous, while edibles take a bit longer to experience the full effect.

While vapes are less intense (assuming a minor amount of puffs), edibles will deliver the full value and for a longer period of time. It all depends on what you’re looking for in the product.

With vapes, you likely have more control over your dose and when to take a step back or step forward.

With edibles, once you take them, there really isn’t any going back...but we say that in a good way, as the Delta 8 feeling is something you’ll remember!
