If you’ve ended up on this page, you’re curious: what are the best tasting delta-8 gummies out there?
Let’s be honest: some of them are only so-so, and some are just…bad. You’ve been searching high and low for what you want. The wait is over. Diet Smoke just released some amazing new flavors in their gummy line, and now features two more cannabinoids:
- Diet Smoke Delta-8 THC gummies: Blue Raspberry and Watermelon
- Diet Smoke Delta-9 THC gummies: Cherry-Lime and Mango
- Diet Smoke CBD gummies: Watermelon and Peach
In this post, we’ll cover the best tasting Delta-8 gummies and other specs about how long they last, potency, and more.
New Gummies, New Flavors!
First thing’s first: let’s talk about new flavors.
If you’re already a fan of Delta-8—or really even if you just started shopping—you’ve probably noticed that a few basic flavors sort of dominate the scene here. It’s not like with THC gummies where, at least in some places, you can get local gourmet makers doing flavors. Nothing is really out there except what’s online.
Diet Smoke was always in the lead with flavor. The classic versions are Blue Raspberry and Watermelon, with 10mg of Delta-8 THC in each gummy. Both are delicious! But there are two new kinds, too.
You can think about them like this.
You might need a regular ol’ Diet Smoke gummy to get through a regular ol’ workday. But if there’s the added pain of a meeting or a deadline? You might need a Diet Smoke Extra.
Each Diet Smoke Extra gummy has 100mg CBD and 10mg Delta-9 THC. They also come in two awesome new flavors that people love: mango and cherry-lime.
Now, if you’re running the meeting or having your annual review? That’s a Diet Smoke Zero kind of day, where you need a little bit of peace. These gummies have 10mg CBD each, and they come in delicious peach and watermelon flavors. Yum!
Why Use Delta-8 Gummies?
Here are some of the basics about the onset and other Delta-8 effects:
Bioavailability. Bioavailability is an issue with gummies; you need to eat and digest them so cannabinoids can get absorbed by the digestive system before they hit your bloodstream.
Duration. The effects of Delta-8 THC have been reported to last longer than traditional Delta-9 THC, so people have reported to like them more in terms of intensity and being discreet. Effects from Delta-8 gummies can last for 6 hours and up to 10 hours. As always, this is just an estimate based on how the body absorbs other cannabinoids, not medical advice.
Potency. Delta-8 gummies are more concentrated than other delivery methods, and you should use caution, because it can take longer to feel effects than it does with smoked or vaped products.
The short version is that edibles are delicious, reliable, and long lasting with little to no hemp extract taste. Diet Smoke gummies are fruity, tasty, colorful, and provide a better experience than so many of the alternatives–especially since you have a few options now!
How Much Delta-8 THC Should You Take?
As with traditional cannabis, everyone has their own sweet spot when it comes to Delta-8 gummies. In fact, while there is no hard and fast rule, you’ll hear “go slow” a lot.
That’s because it’s easy to eat too much and have a bad experience. Plus the bioavailability issue above can get you into trouble if you’re too impatient.
Start with the smallest dose, even part of a gummy if you’re not sure. It’s better to go slow and understand how these cannabinoids affect you individually, so you can avoid unpleasant and unintended experiences.
