“You looked stressed out.”

“Are you stressed?”

“You need to keep stressing out over small things!”

Do any of these statements sound familiar? At some point, we’ve all probably heard any of these aimed at us, and for good reason: everyone suffers or has suffered from stress. 

According to APA’s 2022 Stress in America survey, the top sources of stress were the rise in prices of everyday items due to inflation (e.g., gas prices, energy bills, grocery costs, etc.) (87%), followed by supply chain issues (81%) and global uncertainty (81%).


Stress, a close cousin to anxiety, happens to everyone. When you experience changes or challenges (stressors), your body produces physical and mental responses. That’s stress. However, stress can be positive, keeping us alert, motivated, and ready to avoid danger.

How does Delta-8 help fight stress?

There are numerous ways to fight stress: physical exercise, setting goals, or breathing exercises. Another way many of those suffering from stress can relax is through Delta-8 THC gummy edibles. Imagine being stressed over a long day at work or bills piling up. Dose on a delicious edible, then relax, without any harsh side effects. One big complaint of edible users, more specifically Delta-9 edibles—the more well-known strain— is that it has many benefits but also side effects that include paranoia, delusions, or even increased anxiety. D8 provides a mild, smooth, calming effect, just what you want when you’re stressed, not a bad “high.”

Obtaining D8 edible gummies is easy – and mostly legal

If you’re considering trying D8 to fight stress (or at least get less stressed) many companies offer edible gummies through the mail – legally. Thanks to the 2018 Federal Farm Bill that legalized hemp and hemp-derived products, D8 is fully federally legal and legal in 38 U.S. states. Because D8 products, such as gummies, are infused with a hemp byproduct, they are legal in many states where traditional cannabis is not. If you’re unsure and want to stay on the right side of the law, go here to find out before ordering. Don’t stress out about it. 

Why D8 edible gummies?

If you’re doing research on battling stress with D8 products, you’ve no doubt read about flower, vapes, tinctures or edible chocolates. All fine ways. However, Delta 8 gummies are one of the best options to help relax and lower your stress and are the most common and popular form. 

Delta 8 gummies are unique in that they are extracted from hemp then synthesized to create its own cannabinoid. Edible gummies are easy to take (pop in your mouth and you’re good to go) and they come in many delicious flavors like watermelon, peach, cherry, and orange. (But remember, always keep out of the reach of children.)

How to dose your edible gummy?

If you’re a seasoned user, you can probably skip this section, but if not read on. Beginners to dosing edible gummies should always start small and then work their way up.  Edibles are usually in chunks so you can break off small bits at a time and since they are professionally produced, you can expect a predictable experience each time. Start with a quarter of your gummy, wait an hour, wait for results, then try another quarter then wait. Delta 8 affects everyone differently. The right dose depends on your tolerance and reasons for use, in this case lowering your stress. Experiment with different doses (and flavors!) to find out what works best to help you battle the stress you’re experiencing and get ready to relax.
