10 Factors That Affect Delta-8 Longevity

  1. Quality:

The quality of the Delta-8 THC that you have purchased plays a big role in its longevity. You need to make sure that the product you are buying does in fact have a third-party test certificate. If it does not, then please don’t buy it.

You also need to check the ingredient list before buying. Also, make sure that the product you’re purchasing isn’t unreasonably cheap, if yes, then please stay away from it.

One of the most important things to do however, is to check the website thoroughly before buying anything from it as there are very high chances that the product or the website could be completely fake.

We also need to make sure whether the product that we’ve purchased contains exactly the same amount of THC as mentioned in its labels. Moreover, we also need to be assured whether the product that we’re purchasing even has Delta-8 THC in it at all!

We’re very well aware of the fact that the market nowadays is not at all regulated because of which, the trust between the customer and the brand is everything. Another thing that we need to keep in mind is that the extraction of Delta-8 THC is a very expensive process.

Hence, we should pay the utmost attention to do our research before buying these products, as all these factors play a significant role in deciding the longevity and potency of the product.


  1. Method Of Consumption:

This is probably the most important factor that you need to consider before buying a product. The form in which you consume your Delta-8 THC plays a huge role in determining the longevity effect of your product.

Out of all the Delta-8 THC products, edibles have been recorded to give people the longest kicks, although it also takes more time to show its effects as the digestion process takes longer. The rate of absorption also varies with the methods we use to consume Delta-8 THC.

For example, smoking and vaping can take around 10 to 15 minutes to digest but the kick only lasts for about 2 to 3 hours. Which in fact is very less compared to edibles which take around 1 to 2 hours to start but lasts for a much longer duration.


  1. Brands:

You’d be surprised to know that even though two Delta-8 THC products have the same amount of THC mentioned in their labels, their effects might be completely different.

Depending on the methods through which it is produced, the ingredients that are used in it, the quantity and how well does your body react to it, every Delta-8 THC will have minor differences and may have adverse effects on you.

The duration and the intensity of the kicks may differ significantly with the brands. Some brands can give you a longer high while the others not so much. Some brands will give you a much more intense high while the others not so much.

So, my suggestion to you would be that you keep experimenting with different brands until you finally settle on the one that suits you the most.


  1. Quantity/Dose:

This should come to you as no surprise. The dose of Delta-8 THC that you take determines how long the effect on you will last.

For example, you’ll have much long-lasting results if you consume a 30mg Delta-8 THC edible compared to what you would get if you consume a 15mg edible.

The quantity is the ultimate deciding factor when it comes to the longevity of the product.


  1. Tolerance Capability:

As your tolerance levels increase, the time that it takes for you to get high also increases as your body starts getting used to it.

For example, if you have consumed Delta-8 THC for the first time, you will have a much more intense and long lasting high, but if you’re a seasoned Delta-8 THC user, your high’s might not be as intense as the first time.

This happens because over time, the taste, the smell and the flavor starts getting dull and you’ll start noticing that you now need a much stronger dose to get you to the same levels of high that you once used to get rather easily.


  1. Consumption Along With Alcohol:

It is often said that consuming alcohol before Delta-8 THC has been shown to have lasting results.

More often than not, you may have come across people who consume alcohol before taking their daily dose of Delta-8 THC or weed with hopes of getting higher and long-lasting results, but I’m here to tell you that it might not be the best idea.

Drinking alcohol before consuming Delta-8 THC has been shown to increase the THC levels in your body significantly which could prove to be extremely fatal or harmful in the long run.

The effects of Delta-8 THC and Delta-9 THC are very similar, however, Delta-8 THC is far less potent


  1. Your Body Type:

Your body features like your height, age, weight, diet, BMI, health determine how your body responds to Delta-8 THC or any cannabinoid for that matter.


  1. Your Metabolism:

For people with comparatively high metabolism, chances are that you might have to consume much higher amounts of Delta-8 THC as because of your high metabolism, the effects of Delta-8 THC decrease pretty rapidly.


  1. Mixing With Medications:

If you are on some kind of medication, I must say that mixing cannabis products along with your medications is a very bad idea. Not only can it either increase, or decrease the potency of your product but can also prove to be extremely fatal for your body.


  1. Different Supplements:

If you are on different types of supplements such as Creatinine or vitamin B12, I insist you please stay cautious with your usage. Keep your body in check for any noticeable differences in the way your body behaves.

Different supplements might interfere with the longevity of your Delta-8 THC.



So, these were some of the factors that can adversely affect the longevity of your Delta-8 THC product. I hope this article has helped you get an in depth understanding about the usage of different Delta-8 THC products.
