There’s not just one answer to that question. There are so many ways Delta 8 THC products, it all depends on your needs.
There are edibles, tinctures, shots, the ever-popular edibles, and even chocolate bars infused with pure D8 THC. Before all of the fancy vape cartridges and edibles, people used the oldest and most classic way to take Delta 8 THC into your body: smoking Delta 8 flower.
Smoking has had a bad reputation as of late, and it’s definitely not for everyone. However, there are some definite benefits to smoking Delta 8 THC flower instead of eating Delta 8 THC edibles. Here are some of the many reasons why people still choose to smoke D8 over all of the other new methods available.
Is Smoking Delta 8 Flower Safe?

Reasons Why People Choose To Smoke D8 THC
1. It’s A More Effective Antiemetic
Now this makes logical sense. If you’re nauseous, you’re not going to want to eat something to relieve your nausea, right? If you’re that nauseous, you may not be able to “keep anything down.”
If you can’t keep any food or liquid in your stomach, how can you digest an edible? As we all know, you need to digest an edible for it to work. When you smoke Delta 8, it makes direct contact with your bloodstream. That means the cannabinoids go to work immediately.
2. The Effects of the Smoking Experience Are Almost Instant
As we mentioned above, when you smoke Delta 8, the effects are almost immediate. When you eat THC, it metabolizes into 11-hydroxy-THC, first through the stomach and then the liver. That can mean a long wait before you start feeling the effects.
Delta 8 THC flower, pre-rolls and blunts contain THC in the form of THCA. That THCA is then exposed to heat, transforming it through decarboxylation.
This newly formed cannabinoid gets absorbed through the alveoli in your lungs, then into the bloodstream, and from the bloodstream it goes directly to CB1 receptors in the brain. This offers you near immediate relief that is so much faster than eating gummies or using oils or tinctures.
3. It’s More Effective For People With Chronic Stomach Or Liver Issues
People with chronic stomach and liver issues should not use edibles, because the THC gets digested in the stomach and then metabolized in the liver.
Like anything that needs to be metabolized, it can cause stress on the organs that metabolize them. The best way to avoid undue stress on the liver and the stomach is to circumvent them altogether. As we’ve mentioned, smoking Delta 8 means the active ingredient goes directly into the bloodstream, therefore circumventing and preventing any stomach and liver damage or irritation.
4. You Can Choose Which Strain Works Best For You
You can’t always choose the strain of Delta 8 in gummies and other edibles. Edibles definitely have their place, but if you want to use a specific strain of Delta 8 for its specific qualities, there is a wider variety to choose from if you smoke.
If you choose flower or pre-rolls, you can choose exactly which strain you’ll be using and you’ll get the benefits of that strain.
5. You Have More Control Over The Dosage When Smoking Delta 8 Flower
Contrary to eating gummies or drinking tinctures, when you smoke Delta 8 THC hemp you can control how much or how little you take in.
Of course, you know how much THC is in each gummy and in each drop of tincture. But there’s something else to consider.
2. Because the effects of smoking are immediate, you know how much the Delta 8 is affecting you. If you eat a gummy, you have to wait an hour or more for the effects to even start. There’s a good chance that you could overdo it even before you feel anything.
Edibles, such as gummies, chocolate, and oils and tinctures, definitely have their benefits. However, there are significant benefits to smoking D8 flower rather than ingesting it. Whichever way you choose to use Delta 8, know your options and always be careful and responsible.
