Delta 8 gummies are seemingly everywhere. These gummies are wonderful for promoting relaxation and rest. Some people use them to manage anxiety or to reduce pain. But how do you choose delta 8 edibles when there are so many options on the shelf? Here are a few factors to consider as you browse the various brands and varieties.
Different gummies may contain different amounts of delta 8 THC. What dose you need really depends on your personal preference and how you react to delta 8. If you're a brand new user, you will want to stick with 5 mg or 10 mg gummies. If you're more experienced and know that 10 mg is not enough, then you may want to choose higher-dose 20 mg or 30 mg gummies. Keep in mind that taking several low-dose gummies is easier than splitting a higher-dose gummy. So when in doubt, but the lower dose ones.
Delta 8 does have a cannabis flavor. If you enjoy that flavor, then you'll probably want gummies with a lighter flavor, such as peach or strawberry. If you don't like that flavor, then look for more strongly flavored gummies. Raspberry, lemon, and orange flavors tend to mask the cannabis flavor better.
Most gummies are made with gelatin as a thickening agent. This makes for a really nicely textured gummy. However, gelatin is not vegan or vegetarian, as it is extracted from meat bones. If you follow a plant-based diet, then you'll instead want to look for gummies made with pectin. Pectin is a fruit-based thickener. Pectin-based gummies can be nice, but they tend to have a softer texture than gelatin-based gummies, and they often need to be refrigerated.
The packaging isn't the most important factor to consider when buying delta 8 gummies, but it is a factor. If you want to use your gummies discretely, then you will prefer ones that come in less flashy packaging — and packaging that seals tightly and does not allow odors to escape. A jar is generally better than a pouch. On the other hand, if you don't care about being discrete, then gummies in a pouch or bag will be just fine.
Shopping for delta 8 gummies will be more fun now that you know what to look for. Still, all of these factors are mainly a matter of preference. The best gummies are the ones you like best!
