The PCC states that delta-8-THC can cause harmful reactions if more than one “dose” is taken. Some of those reactions, Scharman says, can affect mental functioning, breathing and the heart. It can also be dangerous if a child takes a single dose. Although they don't always happen, the side effects of Delta 8 are usually minor and short-lived for most people who experience them.
People who consume Delta 8 products generally have no serious health risks or adverse effects. For some people (especially those who are new to consuming hemp products), side effects are more likely to occur if dosage recommendations are exceeded. One of the best ways to avoid the potential side effects of Delta 8 is to consume a dose that is appropriate for your body size. Possible side effects can last for different periods of time depending on how you consume your Delta 8 or the products you consume.
It's also important to note that if you prefer to smoke Delta 8 products and have sensitive eyes, it may be a good idea to smoke D8 products in a well-ventilated area so that exhaled smoke is less likely to irritate your eyes. Delta 8 oil tinctures can be consumed sublingually by applying the dose you prefer under the tongue with the dropper that comes in each bottle. This side effect is due to a reaction between Delta 8 and salivary gland enzymes, and can be relieved by drinking water.
