If you’re a person who loves their morning coffee you might have thought about throwing some Delta 8 THC in the mix. However, you might be curious of what would happen if you did. You’d be surprised at the entourage effect it produces, how it can enhance the flavors; also, picking the right type of coffee is important.
UNDERSTANDING DELTA 8 THC
Although Delta 8 THC is not Marijuana - it’s Hemp - it acts very much like it. This is because the same cannabinoids that exist in Marijuana are also present in Hemp. The biggest difference is that Hemp produces low amounts of THC and high amounts of CBD. Marijuana on the other hand produces low amounts of CBD and high amounts of THC. Also, the type of THC that we extract from the Hemp plant is Delta 8 THC which is less potent.
Although the test on the squirrel monkeys was conducted using Delta 9 THC (Marijuana) it still is THC. Therefore, mixing Delta 8 THC and coffee would produce similar effects although less potent. If you’re not used to THC then we recommend to start with low dosages first. The reason is because if your body doesn’t have a high tolerance it can produce some unwanted side effects. If you have experience with THC you may need to increase your dosage to receive a similar effect to what you’re used to.
They Type of Coffee To Use
You have the option of using either filtered coffee or instant. This comes down to what you’re used to and the quality of the coffee that you prefer. One important thing to note if you’re using Delta 8 THC Tinctures: avoid adding it if it’s too hot. This can cause the Delta 8 to lose some potency; a rule to follow is if it’s too hot to drink it’s too hot to add to your coffee. Also, it can be beneficial to add it to your coffee creamer to cool down your coffee in the process.
Although you’re able to vape and sip coffee, adding Delta 8 directly into your coffee is probably the best option. The downfall is you might feel the effects of the caffeine first then the effects of the Delta 8 THC. Also, you’re able to monitor the amount of Delta 8 you’re consuming when you use a Tincture. Typically a lighter roast has more caffeine Vs. a darker roast. We recommend sticking to a coffee that you’re used to if you decide to blend the 2.
Try It For Yourself
You will never know what type of experience you’ll get if you don’t try it for yourself. We recommend starting with a little bit of coffee and a little bit of Delta 8. If you’re sensitive to caffeine you probably won’t have a good time mixing the both. If you feel the effects are too strong for you then we recommend either eating something or taking some CBD. There is no denying the entourage effect will be different, and the Delta 8 can enhance both your experience and flavor. Whatever coffee you use just remember - if you’re using a Delta 8 Tincture, don’t add it to hot-scalding coffee.
