Why Does Delta 8 Make Me Cough So Much?

By Jill Raver

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?

  1. Try chewing or sucking on something sour. Sour flavor stimulates more saliva production than other flavors. 
  2. If you don’t like sour flavors, try anything you like, such as chewing gum, etc. Chewing stimulates saliva production. 
  3. 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.
  4. Drink water.
  5. Try smaller puffs.
  6. Never use Delta 8 vape products if you have asthma or other breathing problems. Choose Delta 8 Gummies or Delta 8 Oil instead. 

Before adding any Delta 8 product to your daily regimen, or if you cannot stop coughing, please contact your doctor.
