At Gas, we’re proud to bring consumers the most sought-after psychoactive cannabinoids on today’s hemp market. These cannabinoids each work with the body in their own fascinating way, not only producing a different level of intoxication but also offering unique properties that affect how we feel each day. Gas Delta-8, THC-O, THC-P, and HHC products can all address different daily needs, goals, and desires.
A common question that customers ask us is whether or not it’s okay to take more than one cannabinoid product, either at the same time or within a 24-hour period. The answer, in general, is yes, but what the results will end up like depends on a number of different factors.
The Basics on Cannabinoids
Before we talk about what happens when you mix cannabinoids with one another, let’s quickly cover the cannabinoids that we do offer at Gas Canna, and a general rundown of their effects. This will tell you what the results can be from mixing the two together, in the general sense.
- Delta-8-Tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-8 THC): A psychoactive cannabinoid that’s 30% less potent than delta-9 THC, and is known for its mellowing, evening-friendly effects.
- THC-O-acetate (THC-O): A powerful psychoactive that’s 3x more potent than delta-9 THC, promoting a heavy body high paired with euphoria.
- Tetrahydrocannabiphorol (THC-P): The most intoxicating cannabinoid in hemp, being about 10x as strong as delta-9 THC while also offering a euphoric experience.
- Hexahydrocannabinol (HHC): About as psychoactive as delta-9 THC, and the high feels very similar, with an uplifting yet soothing effect on the mind & body.
Do Cannabinoids Negatively Interact with One Another?
First, let’s get this out of the way. Cannabinoids do not have a negative interaction risk with one another. They all come from the same plant. Meaning, they’re actually meant to be taken together, as this is how nature presents them to us – all mixed into one hemp flower bud. Combining cannabinoids offers a synergistic effect between the two, in fact, that can elevate the properties, coupled with the overall enjoyment of your experience, for the most part that is.
Combining Cannabinoids: Why it’s Worth Trying
Many people find that taking multiple cannabinoids together is actually extremely desirable. Each cannabinoid supplies its own unique properties, and, combining them can create a new synergistic effect that can really address your specific goals.
Some reasons for combining cannabinoids include:
- To Get a New Experience: If you’ve already tried all of the cannabinoids at Gas Canna, mixing them together can give you a new and exciting hemp experience with effects that you wouldn’t experience otherwise
- To Increase the Potency: Let’s say you love delta-8 THC for its soothing effects but want a more potent high. Throwing a little, say, THC-O into the experience can give you a more psychoactive effect while still enjoying what delta-8 has to offer.
- To Decrease the Potency: Alternatively, if you love, say, THC-P, but find it way too strong, you can balance this out with a little delta-8 THC instead of taking a full THC-P dose.
- To Address Different Daily Needs: Maybe you love HHC’s uplifting effects in the daytime but prefer a more mellowing cannabinoid like delta-8 THC at night.
What Might Determine Your End Result When Mixing and Matching Cannabinoids?
Combining cannabinoids with one another can deliver a one-of-a-kind effect, and there are a lot of different aspects of how you actually do combine them with one another that can play a big role in what the end result will be.
#1: Amount You Take of Each
The number of milligrams of each cannabinoid you consume makes a difference, of course. Taking 5 milligrams of THC-P with 25 milligrams of delta-8 THC is quite different from taking 25 milligrams of THC-P with 5 milligrams of delta-8 THC, since the proportion affects how much each cannabinoid feels in the system. Many people take half a dose of two different cannabinoids to avoid getting too high.
#2: When You Take Each
Timing matters a lot, as well. Taking HHC in the morning and taking THC-O at night is very different from taking both at the same time. How spread out your doses are, determines how much of an overlap you’ll have, where you’ll feel both cannabinoids at once.
#3: Unique Product Types/Delivery Methods
Yes, every product type/delivery method can vary in terms of effects and potency level.
- Inhalable products like vapes and flower are potent, fast-acting, and short-lived.
- Edibles take a while to kick in, last for up to 8 hours and present a stronger body high effect.
Which product types you choose says everything about how long the effects last, when they are first felt and how strongly you feel those said effects.
#4: The Cannabinoids Themselves
It goes without saying that the biggest determining factor is the cannabinoids themselves. As you saw earlier, each one has its own effects. So, each combination is going to yield a different kind of high. This is where you can have fun experimenting with different cannabinoid blends, taking notes of what you like best.
A Final Note For All Newbies Out There
We want to mention that if you’re a newbie to the world of hemp, or THC-based compounds, best to start with just a single and milder cannabinoid like delta-8 THC or HHC. Combining cannabinoids together can be a lot for a person with a low tolerance, who is still trying to figure out what every cannabinoid feels like in their system. In fact, this could even heighten those minor side effects of grogginess, dizziness, or dry mouth. Once you develop a good tolerance, and, have a better grasp of how each cannabinoid affects you, then you can begin to enjoy trying out different combinations.
Mixing and Matching Cannabinoids: Customize Your Hemp Experience Like Never Before
Ultimately, you can absolutely combine cannabinoids with one another. These compounds play nicely together and offer a distinctive synergistic experience that can take your hemp routine to a whole new level of absolute satisfaction. Of course, the key is making sure that you’re mixing and matching only the highest-quality cannabinoid products, like the vapes, flower and edibles available on our website.
Please Note: Before using any new cannabinoid(s), speak with your doctor first, especially, if you’re currently on any prescription medications. Your physician has access to your medical records and can therefore, make a proper determination if that said cannabinoid is an option for you to take.
