2:1 or 1:1 CBD to Delta-8 THC Ratio: You Decide!

iDELTA8 is offering their unique take on the delta 8 vape cartridge, which comes in a rich array of strains. Not only that, but this cart is refreshingly free of fillers, additives, and cutting agents. This allows vapers to enjoy a purer way to explore these hemp compounds.  iDELTA8 has made it easy to choose the right strength for their needs and experience level. How? By simply offering three distinctive formulas: SILVER, GOLD, and DIAMOND.

For this article, we will be focusing on the SILVER and GOLD options, as a lot of people who are new to iDELTA8 have a hard time figuring out which one is better suited for them.  Both of these formulas combine delta 8 THC with cannabidiol (CBD). However, in different proportions that can make quite a big difference, especially to beginners.

Anyone for the most part who might be on the fence about giving delta 8 THC a try, these ratio options are the perfect starting point. You’re in full control of the effects in a simpler manner. Not only that, but you know exactly what to expect from each formula’s ratio.

Why Does Ratio Matter?

Actually, a better question would be, why does iDELTA8 offer this unique way of choosing a vape formula?  Well, delta 8 THC is a mildly psychoactive cannabinoid, which comes from the hemp plant and results from the natural aging process of its more powerful sister compound, delta 9 THC.  Delta-8, being milder, is not as intoxicating, and may be about 30% less potent in terms of these effects than delta-9.  But, unlike CBD, delta8’s effects are tolerance-dependent.  Meaning, if you’ve never used the compound before, it may hit you harder than it does for those who have plenty of experience with the compound.

Because iDELTA8 wants everyone to thoroughly enjoy their delta 8 experience, they have released their SILVER, GOLD, and DIAMOND formulas so that beginners can work their way up the delta 8 ladder, so to speak.  The way in which they have pulled this off is by precisely balancing the content of delta 8 THC to the content of CBD in each formula, as CBD and delta 8 share a synergistic relationship in which they can balance out the effects of the other. 

In short, the more CBD is in your formula, the less intense the effects of delta 8 can be.

Ratio Comparisons Between iDELTA8’s SILVER and GOLD

Now, we can get to comparing SILVER and GOLD so that you can know where you stand when the time comes to make a purchase from iDELTA8.

SILVER: 2:1 CBD to Delta 8 THC

SILVER is the formula that was developed for beginners.  With its 2:1 CBD to delta 8 ratio, it contains twice as much cannabidiol as delta-8, thus diluting the delta8 in the formula while allowing synergy to come into play, taking the edge off of the d8.  It’s ideal for beginners because it promotes a gentler type of experience in which its properties can be distinctively felt, without being overwhelming in a way that newbies may not be prepared for.

This ratio has proven to be successful with beginners, who have found that it allows them to get the hang of delta 8 and work up a tolerance in their body without ever feeling like they have taken too much delta-8 at once.  Especially, if you start out with just one or two puffs as a first-timer, you should expect gentle effects that are largely enjoyable.

GOLD: 1:1 CBD to Delta 8 THC

Once you’ve gotten comfortable with the Silver formula, you can graduate to Gold.  Or, if you are already an experienced delta 8 user who just prefers a more balanced hemp formula, than Gold is a good place to start. 

GOLD has a 1:1 CBD to delta 8 ratio, meaning that it contains equal parts cannabidiol and delta 8 THC.  Delta 8’s effects will naturally be stronger in this formula, as there is more of it than there is in the SILVER, and CBD’s balancing effects will be less prevalent. 

Still, the combination of both compounds together does promote a less intense experience than one would have if they were to simply vape delta 8 in its purest form, all on its own.

GOLD’s formula is a favorite among many of our customers, who say that they can really feel the way in which cannabidiol is playing with the delta 8.  Many customers do, in fact, stick with gold rather than graduating to DIAMOND, which is a pure delta 8 formula, because they do appreciate the way in which CBD creates a totally different kind of delta-8 vaping experience.  Do not forget that the terpenes in the formula are also playing a role, delivering specific properties that are coming from neither cannabinoid.

Have an Easier Time Vaping Delta 8 THC

iDELTA8 has made it easier than ever to jump into a delta 8 routine while feeling in complete control over the effects that this cannabinoid will have on the body and mind.  So, whether you’re a beginner or experienced user, we encourage you to explore the SILVER and GOLD formulas to figure out which one is going to best suit your specific goals with delta-8 as well as CBD.
