Hi friends! Wow, okay, I recorded this video last week and the audio didn’t connect. I feel super frustrated that I have to rerecord this, but it’s okay. All that to say, the product that I’m trying— I ate the full dose last time. I’m not going to do that again because it was a lot. Maybe I’ll even edit in some audio clips so you can see on my face how unwell I was. But with that said, we are back with another product review video, so come along.
Welcome back to the RESTART channel. My name is Shayda, and we are doing a product review of our 20 milligram Delta-9 and 20 milligram Delta-8 yuzu pineapple gummies right here. So, 20 Delta-9, 20 Delta-8, 40 milligrams total. Okay, these gummies are seriously the most popular flavor, the most popular combination—insert whatever the best popular saying—these are them. They’re constantly sold out, and we have a hard time keeping them in stock because they’re so good.
I’m not gonna lie, 40 milligrams is a little bit more than I’m used to consuming, and so I’ve been very cautious to do a product review because I wasn’t ready for it. Now let me kind of caveat this with, I did this recording, like I said, last week and I ate half—so 10 milligrams of Delta-9, 10 milligrams of Delta-8—and decided when I came in and did my check-in that I would just go ahead and eat the other half for that full 40 milligrams. I had a hard time sleeping because my mind was racing.
As I’ve mentioned in previous videos, when you consume edibles, it does take time to take effect; it’s not going to be as fast-acting as smoking something or vaping something. That’s part of the challenge with edibles, as people obviously want immediate effects. But I think a benefit of edibles is it is a longer-lasting effect. It’s a longer duration. So, the pro/con/pro of that is, once you consume—if it’s too much—you just got to ride through it. I often talk about it like a roller coaster; you’re strapping yourself in, you’re on the ride.
My hope with doing these videos is to give you a little bit of a taste, a little bit of preview, a little bit of an experience that you can hopefully relate to and see what is best for you. When it comes to edibles, especially THC edibles, because THC is a psychoactive cannabinoid, it is going to make you feel high. And again, it can be a lot for some people. So, because I am a little bit of a seasoned pro, I’m used to this effect. I think that’s why I was so bold to just eat the other half of the gummy. I did the first half and then an hour and a half in, I ate the second half. So it kind of buffered it out a little bit.
By the time I was going to sleep, it was a lot. Even at half, it’s still like, as I said, 20 milligrams of THC. So all that to say, be mindful of how much you’re consuming. Read the product labels, make sure you understand how many milligrams are per gummy and what cannabinoids are present.
Now in this case, it’s a mixture of Delta-8 and Delta-9, and you might be wondering, that’s crazy, who needs those two cannabinoids? Well, I will tell you why I think it’s very enjoyable for people because they do produce a slightly different high, so to speak. And so when you take them together, it’s just even more of a high effect.
Now, I will also mention and highlight, for those of you who aren’t aware, we started RESTART because I had been a cannabis consumer for a long time, a big part of my life. In 2015, I was in a car accident. I was hit by a vehicle as a pedestrian and now I suffer and deal with chronic pain daily. So for me, I love using cannabis to help me manage and mitigate my pain.
Now there’s a whole thing about tolerance, and your body getting used to it. There’s also a whole conversation around bioavailability and different form factors, your body responding or absorbing more or less depending on how you’re consuming. So, an edible, like I mentioned earlier, is going to take longer to take effect, but it will stay in your system longer because it’s going through your digestive system. Smoking hits your bloodstream much quicker and fades out faster.
So figuring out what’s the right dose, what’s the right form factor, all that goodness is part of your journey. If you’re curious to explore more of that, check out our channel. We have so many other videos on there explaining your endocannabinoid system, CBD vs THC, Delta-8 vs Delta-9, etc. But for the purpose of this video, we’re really going to just talk about the
effect of these gummies, what they taste like, what you can expect, and kind of how I felt.
So, they’re delicious, first off. They taste amazing, so good, hence why they’re so popular. And the high I experienced—again, like I said, it’s a lot, so be cautious—but for me, it was a good experience. I felt relaxed, and like I said, I did sleep well, but it was a lot for me. So, I wouldn’t recommend 40 milligrams unless you’re super experienced. I would start with a half, see how you feel. Wait an hour or two before you decide to consume more. That is my personal recommendation, and as always, consult with your doctor or healthcare provider for what is best for you.
