THC Delta 8 is considered safe because, on its own, it doesn't affect the immune system, meaning you won't have cravings, dry mouth, or blood-shot eyes, at least if you take lower doses. However, when taken in higher doses than recommended, these side effects can occur. A survey of delta-8 users supports this, and respondents reported that they felt less paranoid, less anxious and that they had a “more pleasant high” compared to delta-9-THC. The most common experiences using delta-8 were relaxation, euphoria, and pain relief.
People reported that they had some difficulty concentrating, short-term memory problems and an altered sense of time, although not to the same extent as with regular marijuana.
