Does CBD & Delta-8 THC Work Better On An Empty Stomach? Where to Buy Delta-8?

Many reports suggest that eating an edible on an empty stomach will make you feel its effects quicker, and that the effects will be even more potent. Many Delta-8 & CBD users prefer with food. Generally speaking you may want to take Delta-8 with food for the same reason you take any medication with food. Having food in your stomach reduces the chance of certain side effects, like stomach irritation, indigestion, or nausea. Another important point is that Delta-8-THC is fat soluble, which means taking them alongside a meal containing healthy fats can help your body absorb the Delta-8-THC more efficiently.

In general absorption of edibles doesn't happen in the stomach, but in the small intestine. The stomach only digests the food partially, and then passes it into the small intestine to be digested further. Eating a meal before taking an edible will slow the rate at which the stomach empties the Delta-8  edible into the small intestine, which essentially slows the rate at which Delta-8 is converted into a Delta-8 metabolite and absorbed into the bloodstream.

Other types of Delta-8-THC products, like flower and oils, may not necessarily be impacted the same way by food because they are not typically absorbed in the gut. Of course, eating consistent, healthy meals can have other advantages that improve your Delta-8 experience, like keeping your blood sugar consistent and avoiding stomach irritation.
