There seems to be a lot of confusion about what exactly Delta 8 THC does. Is it supposed to get you high? Is it like CBD? Here is what you need to know about Delta 8 and if it’s supposed to get you high.
The Middle Ground Between CBD and THC
We often refer to Delta 8 THC as the middle ground between CBD and THC, although it is technically THC. The reason is that it’s Hemp-derived – it comes from the Hemp plant.
Most THC out there has one purpose: to get you high. However, THC from the marijuana plant has Delta 9 THC. For CBD or Delta 8 THC to be considered Hemp, it must have 0.03% Delta 9 THC or below.
Similarities between CBD and Delta 8
CBD and Delta 8 THC have in common that they are both Hemp-derived and have less than 0.03% Delta 9 THC. However, the most significant difference is that Delta 8 is psychoactive, and CBD is non-psychoactive.
In other words, Delta 8 can give you a head change, while CBD does not. Also, depending on the type of CBD product that you use, you’re getting different Hemp properties from each product.
Delta 8 THC Strains
Can Delta 8 get you high? Yes. However, the high depends on different factors such as your tolerance and strains. Also, when shopping for strains, you’ll notice a pattern of certain terpenes associated with some strains.
When you think of the word Indica, think of “in the couch.” Indica tends to have more mellow and chill properties when compared to other strains. Limonene, Linalool, and Myrcene are the most common terpenes associated with Indicas.
Popular Indica: Jelly Sherbet
The Sativa strain is most often known for having uplifting characteristics. Also, it embodies creativity, happiness, and positive vibes. Terpinolene, Alpha-Pinene, and D-Limonene terpenes are in Sativa strains.
Popular Sativa: Kandy Kush
A Hybrid strain is a well-balanced blend of both Indica and Sativa qualities. However, you’ll find that most Hybrid strains tend to have a dominant quality. A Hybrid will never be 50/50 between Indica and Sativa, but a Hybrid manages to embody the best of both strains.
Popular Hybrid: Krypto Kronic
Benefits of Terpenes
The two significant benefits of terpenes are the taste and the experience it promotes. When we extract the distillate, it’s left flavorless, so we use botanical-derived terpenes to give it flavor. Also, the terpenes provide it with the Indica, Sativa, or Hybrid feel.

Getting The Best High
It’s better to account for a few things when looking for the best high. First of all, your tolerance – do you have experience with THC? Also, the type of product that you’re using.
A person with a low tolerance is typically a person who is not used to THC, and it might take a little bit to get a good high going. This person might prefer Delta 8 over Marijuana because it’s less potent.
Helpful Tips for Low Tolerance
You will want to start with small amounts first. It might be tempting to take an entire gummy, but products like our Blackcraft Extrax have about 4,000 mg of THC; remember that it only takes 5 – 10 mg to get you high.
You should take about half the serving size suggestion on the product label. If you don’t, it could result in you taking too much and not having a pleasant experience.
On the contrary, a person with a high tolerance to THC uses Marijuana often. You will find that Delta 8 tends to be less potent when compared to Marijuana, but it doesn’t mean that it’s not potent.
Helpful Tips for High Tolerance
For people with a high tolerance to THC, we recommend doing the opposite of someone with a low tolerance. In other words, the higher the THC content, the better. An average high-tolerance dose can be 60 – 80 mg of THC.
You would also want to consider the type of THC you are consuming. Cannabinoids such as THCh, and THCjd can be a lot more potent. This means that your body can absorb a lot more when compared to regular Marijuana.

What Does A Delta 8 High Feel Like?
Here’s the thing, when it comes down to it, THC is THC regardless of where it came from. Therefore, it will get you high, but it depends on how your body reacts to it.
If you look at some of the reviews for our products, you’ll notice some customers saying they didn’t feel anything while others say it was a wild ride. THC is not a one-size-fits-all high, and it affects everyone differently.
Getting High Off of Delta 8 THC
What you can expect from a Delta 8 high is a middle ground between CBD and Marijuana. Also, what’s cool about Delta 8 is that you’ll find different strains and Terpene profiles as you would in Marijuana.
Although your tolerance plays a crucial part in the high you get, there’s a little something for everyone. Whether you’re a newbie or a seasoned vet, there’s a way for you to get high off Delta 8 and enjoy it!
