5 Things to Do While “Hi” on Delta 8

5 Things to Do While “Hi” on Delta 8

Whether you’ve already tried our Delta 8 products or you’re just here to learn more about the beneficial properties of Delta 8 THC, we welcome you! 

Our team often receives questions about the science behind Delta 8, proper dosing, and sourcing. We also find ourselves having conversations around how to incorporate Delta 8 in day-to-day activities. What we love about Delta 8 is its versatility and ability to produce a “hi” without the anxiety, paranoia, or intensity that we often feel with Delta-9-THC. 

Let’s dive into use cases and activities to enjoy - both alone and in company - after consuming D8.

1. Eat

Delta-8 is known for stimulating appetites while reducing nausea, and has been studied as a means to treat eating disorders and weight loss. 

Even if you don’t suffer from these conditions, we love Delta 8 as a way to savor the foods and beverages we eat. Not only does it increase appetite, but it can heighten senses in different ways for each user. 

Try stocking up on your favorite snacks, hosting a dinner party with friends (perhaps potluck style, no pun intended), or concocting new recipes while the creative juices are flowing. We never need an excuse to indulge in delicious food, but Delta 8 THC definitely adds fuel to want to.

2. Exercise

Indulging in food and working out aren’t mutually exclusive, but a less additive activity to engage in with D8 is working out. 

A 2015 study by Angela Bryan, professor of neuroscience at University of Colorado Boulder, initially sought out to survey cannabis users to conclude if increased cannabis use will take a physical toll on users, leaning in to the “couch potato” stereotype. She instead found that 70% of users said consuming cannabis made them more excited to work out. They even cited prolonged performance, particularly in cardiovascular activities like running. 

Delta 8 is also known for anti-inflammatory properties, which can help with muscle recovery post workout. Consumption is an interesting way to increase enthusiasm and benefits of exercise. Runners hi, anyone?

3. Work or Study

A positive reaction to Delta 8 is its ability to help users maintain greater mental control and clarity. A “hi” without being completely intoxicated or consumed in the experience, if you will. And many report mental stimulation. 

Try studying or getting some work done and experiencing what a functional high feels like. A lot of hurdles around working can be a result of anxiety associated with the activity. By treating those sentiments, we can experience more productive working or studying sessions. 

While there are no studies that indicate Delta 8 as being a cannabinoid that specifically aids focus, studies show that consuming D8 has neuroprotective properties, and can aid in long term cognition, memory, and neuroplasticity due to its ability to produce acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter. We suggest smaller doses of D8 to start and test improved productivity and focus. 

4. Write or Paint

The good feelings and sensory stimulation induced by Delta 8 is great for creativity and exploration in any form. 

Consider the creative tasks you enjoy and what the experience is like after consuming Delta 8. Or, if you’re not an “artistic” person, think of a few activities you’ve always wanted to try, but for whatever reason have yet to. Paint with friends, tackle a creative writing prompt, or give pottery a try. Take advantage of those creative juices!

5. Relax

D8 is an incredible tool to promote a sense of deep relaxation. With anxiolytic properties that help ease stress, our customers often use Delta 8 before bedtime or anytime throughout the day where they need a greater sense of calm. 

We love a few puffs of our Delta 8 THC vape before a bath, watching a movie, or just enjoying the company of friends and family. Get cozy and enjoy without distractions or tension.
