If you are a newbie, you may experience coughing from vaping Delta 8. Some coughing is normal, but coughing to excess could indicate a health problem or even an allergy to an ingredient in your Delta 8 product. So, why does Delta 8 make me cough so much?
What is Delta 8?
Delta 8 is a naturally occuring form of THC that is found in both Hemp and Marijuana. Delta 8 is similar to the more commonly known Delta 9 THC. Milligram to milligram, Delta 8 is about half as potent as Delta 9. However, Delta 8 products usually feature a higher milligram serving size in order to be comparable to the effects of Delta 9. Delta 8 is legal federally in the U.S. as long as the product is derived from Hemp and contains no more than 0.3% Delta 9 THC by dry weight. However, several states have banned or regulated this form of THC. Delta 8 THC has intoxicating effects and helps you feel relaxed.
How Do I Stop Coughing When I Smoke Delta 8?
- Try chewing or sucking on something sour. Sour flavor stimulates more saliva production than other flavors.
- If you don’t like sour flavors, try anything you like, such as chewing gum, etc. Chewing stimulates saliva production.
- Sucking on a mint, piece of hard candy or even a cough drop may not result in quite as much saliva production, but it can help with saliva production and soothe your throat too.
- Drink water.
- Try smaller puffs.
- Never use Delta 8 vape products if you have asthma or other breathing problems. Choose Delta 8 Gummies or Delta 8 Tincture Oil instead.
Before adding any Delta 8 product to your daily regimen, or if you cannot stop coughing, please contact your doctor.
