These Delta 8 THC gummies offer a MAX 50mg Delta 8 THC experience. Great for experienced users and great flavor!
Like many cannabis users (I suspect), I’m bad at following orders.
So when I read on the CannabisLife.com website that these gummies are “for experienced Delta 8 THC users only”, I didn’t follow instructions and tried out these green apple 50mg Delta 8 THC gummies anyway.
My experience was … I should have listened. These are yummy gummies I came to love, but my first experience said take it very slow.
Green Apple Delta 8 THC: First Impressions
Let’s start with first impressions. On the packaging the first thing I notice is the “MAX” designation atop the green resealable bag – one indicator that the 50mg dose is not to be trifled with. The bag is inviting, green and graphic, with a photo of a cut apple there near the bottom hinting at the flavor. In the upper-left the bag tells us that Cannabis Life is “a Green Roads company.” Green Roads is a company I’ve personally put stock in for a while now – and I would say that if any company out there knows how to formulate for “MAX” effect, it’s these guys.

So as I’m opening this bag, I’m trusting, I’m hopeful, I’m excited! And let me tell you about that first taste: the apple flavor is pretty awesome! – more gummy makers should steal a page from these and use tart apple flavor. Yum!
The 50mg Delta 8 THC Experience
The serving size of these yummy gummies is 50mg of Delta 8 THC per gummy. That’s a lot of THC! In the last product I reviewed, we were talking about a 5mg THC dose per gummy. What gives?
The reason, of course, is that this is Delta 8 THC, and the last product was Delta 9 THC. Delta 8 THC is generally considered to have a less potent psychoactive effect than Delta 9 THC. Delta 9 THC occurs much more readily in the cannabis plant, whereas Delta 8 generally exists in much smaller amounts in the plant. So, if producers want to make an intoxicating Delta 8 THC gummy, a higher dose of Delta 8 THC is usually called for. Whereas the 2018 Farm Bill specifically regulated the amount of Delta 9 THC in a product (less than 0.3%), Delta 8 THC is not specifically regulated – so producers can really go for “MAX” with these products.
Thinking I’m so smart and experienced … I went ahead and took the whole 50mg gummy on my first test. My Delta 8 THC high kicked in within 30 minutes. Straight away, this high felt different than most THC highs I’m used to.
Specifically, I started off with a bit of a headache. It was a THC-induced kind of headache I’ve had before, but it usually shows up on the backend, not the frontend, in my experience. Not the worst thing ever…any experienced user of any version of THC has probably been there.
It made me think (are we sensing a theme): these gummies are really for experienced users of Delta 8, and I shoulda listened.
My headache did give way though, and in the middle of this edible THC high, this was the experience I am used to. I think I’d described it as a little bit more of a body high than a cerebral one; if left to my own devices, I likely would have spent a lot of this time laid out on the couch.
The high was quite long-lasting – seven hours after taking my single gummy, I was still very much feeling its effects, and enjoying them. The 50mg high did feel a bit overwhelming early-on, though it evened out for me.
CannabisLife: The Rest of the Bag
That first-time experience with CannabisLife Delta 8 THC gave way to a week or two of enjoying these regularly. Realizing how strong they were and dedicating myself to following directions, I took them in all kinds of different ways that week: eating half (25mg dose) many times, having really just a bite (15mg?) a couple times … and consuming a bunch whole (50mg), too.
I enjoyed the bag thoroughly after that first somewhat up-and-down experience. Once I realized the MAX potency on these wasn’t playing around, they became a great way for me to wind down at the end of the day … or get into a super deep session of Netflix & chill in the evening.
Delta 8: Knowledge is Power
From reading, research, and now some personal experience – I’m starting to come around on Delta 8 products! As an old hippie writer (in another life), I’m a bit wary of chemically synthesized cannabinoids entering my body.
That said, maybe ‘better living through chemistry’ really is a thing. I enjoyed these quite a bit by the time all was said and done. The experience, for me, was extremely similar to every other THC high I’ve ever had before. I liked that these had some crazy potency, and I could nibble my way to a great high. T
The Final Word
I should have just listened to the Cannabis Life website and packaging when they told me this product is for experienced Delta 8 THC users! Once I became that experienced Delta 8 user myself, I really enjoyed these. If you’ve been using Delta 8 THC for a while, and that works for you – you will very much enjoy these tasty green apple gummies!
