Delta gummies and other Delta-8 THC products are among the most widely used and talked about compounds in the hemp industry today. They have managed to catch the attention of everyone because the goods produced from Delta-8 THC are not only safe but also offer tremendous benefits to its users. It’s more like having all the good stuff that comes with getting high without the bad ones.
However, since they are relatively new to the hemp industry or market, not many know how to use them. You’ll often hear people who are first-timers ask questions like, how many Delta gummies can I take at a go? Or how many Delta gummies can I take in a day?
Are you new to Delta gummies? If you are, I’m sure you also have the same or similar questions. Hence, in today’s guide, we’ll look at the amount of Delta gummies you can safely take in a day.
How much Delta-8 THC should I take?
The amount of Delta-8 THC products (e.g. Delta gummies) you can take depends on several factors, one of which is how you consume Delta-8 THC. This is an essential factor to consider because it affects the product’s bioavailability and its onset and duration of effects.
The term “bioavailability” refers to the excess amount of Delta-8 THC that the body can use after the liver has metabolized the compound.
The consumption method is essential when gauging the amount of any Delta-8 THC product because each consumption method has its own way of interacting with your body. Some might require more time for the effect to show, and others require less time.
Other essential factors to consider include:
Bodyweight: Bigger and heavier people will need higher doses than smaller people.
Delta-8 THC tolerance: your tolerance can be built over time. This means that you’ll require a higher dose to get the same effects as before. However, some people naturally have a higher tolerance to THC. At the same, others are very reactive.
Expected results: You should also factor in what you want to achieve. Do you want to enter a euphoric mode? Jolt your energy levels? Or do you just want to relax on your sofa? Knowing what you need will help in determining the right dose.
Here’s a handy chart you can go through to help you determine the right dosage for you when taking Delta-8 THC products.

Delta-8 THC gummies dosage
Delta gummies often come with a prematurely amount of Delta-8 THC present—usually around 10-40 mg per gummy. If you are a lightweight user or a beginner, then 10 mg is considered a reasonable dose. At the same time, the 40 mg dose is more suitable for heavy users with a higher Delta-8 THC tolerance.
After taking a gummy, the effect doesn’t kick in immediately, so don’t take another. It’s recommended to wait for about 2 hours to develop the effect. Once it develops and you feel you are comfortable with that amount, you can choose to up your dosage a little by taking an extra half gummy.
