I used to be a huge pothead and technically still am, with a massive THC tolerance based on vaping all day and consuming hundreds of mgs of oral THC daily, but I haven't touched a D9 THC product in over a year. A few weeks ago when I had a really bad precipitated withdrawal from taking naltrexone while abusing kratom extracts I gave in and to get relief purchased a D8 edible from the same smoke shop I get my OPMS black kratom shot.

100mg doses provided lots of relief. Although it's hard to compare for me to D9 since my tolerance was down, i'd say it isn't that much weaker, at least when consumed orally. I saw some video that claimed when orally taken the first pass metabolism converts it to the metabolite as D9 gets converted to. Knocked my socks off, really.

I was worried it would re-ignite my cannabinoid habit but I managed to abstain. I am still abusing the kratom tho.

Point being, oral D8 is legit af.
Hmmm, well, I guess I'll buy some D8 gummies as they sell them at the gas station a mile from me, whereas even though weed is legal in my state (NY), we don't have dispensaries yet (they said they would by the end of 2022 so WTF?!?) so I have to drive 45 minutes to Jersey to get it now, which isn't that big a deal, but the traffic can get hectic.

Plus, it would just be interesting to try it out.

I take Naltrexone on and off to keep myself from too much drinking, kratom and phenibut as well, then i like to go off it to get fucked up when I feel like it, and in this way i am able to control my usage better.

I VERY carefully wait like 5 days after my last kratom usage to take Naltrexone again, and have never had a problem, and you were taking extracts so those will be stronger than plain leaf like i use. I haven't used an extract in years.

Do you use naltrexone the same way I do, to decrease frequency of usage?

And let me ask you: how many days after your last kratom dose did you take naltrexone??

@Mycophile I'd go to a smoke shop or buy online, a lot of gas station d8 sucks.

One issue with the d8 market is there are a lot of bad products out there.

I recommend 3chi, cake and DazeD brands.
Thanks.

Yeah, makes sense that something like that at a gas station would suck.

I'm assuming it still won't be as good as regular weed but interested to see if it has some different effects.

Initially I tried using the naltrexone to interrupt the kratom habit and block it. I didn't anticipate how dependent I had become as the withdrawal was incredible painful.

I had used kratom the day before and almost every day of the week before. Averaging 3 OPMS black shots which is equivalent to about 27 grams of plain kratom a day.

Currently i am using ultra low dose naltrexone because I read it can keep tolerance from growing when taken just before the opiate.

When I manage to take a break from kratom for some days, I'll then take full doses of naltrexone to keep it stopped. Several weeks ago I had 10 days clean off kratom but then started using again. Naltrexone will help me to keep the habit down.

Assuming you get a good brand the D8 edible will be very good. I bought 500mg cookies from HI D8... they were reasonably priced too.

At lower doses it's said to be a little weaker than D9 but hits the same receptors, just a little less hard.

At higher doses it becomes less distinguishable from d9.

Look forward to hearing your experience!

Btw, shop around because some edibles are much cheaper than others per mg.

Oh yeah man, you HAVE to let any and all opioids clear the system FULLY before taking full dose naltrexone or you are in trouble.

You have to be SURE you aren't in ANY kind of withdrawal or you'll get precipitated WD.

I would really like to try ULDN as well. Some people have told me how to make it, but I'm just wondering if I'll get it right and not accidentally just produce low dose naltrexone which can still give precipitated WD.

Do you make it yourself or buy it?

Yeah for sure, I learned my lesson.

For ULDN, I took half a 50mg pill, crushed it up fine, so 25mg, then dissolved it in a personal water bottle that was 500ml. Then used a 1ml dropper (10 times) to take 10ml out of it into a fresh 500ml bottle. Then I dose 1-2ml from that second bottle to get a 1-2ug (microgram) dose of ULDN.

1mg is 1000ug (micrograms).
So starting with 25,000ug in the first 500ml water bottle, 10 ml of that solution is 25,000/50 = 500ug. Pouring that into a second 500 ml water bottle (although technically 10ml of that second bottle should first be thrown out), we have 500ml containing 500ug or 1ug per ml. I read the ideal ULDN is 1-2ug but it varies.

Currently preparing my personal use 375 grams of delta 8 distillate into tincture using pure C8 oil as a carrier. I have 3 boro glasses at 125 ml a piece so I'm going to need to do the process twice in order to hold all of the solution. I'm expecting the whole process to take about 3 hours.

Has this actually worked so far in terms of potentiating the kratom and/or mitigating the WD effects?

Because I've heard it's supposed to do both and works wonders for any kind of opioid WD.

I do believe it's been helping to reduce tolerance but I developed a substantial tolerance by the time I began ULDN. I think the results would be better if I did a tolerance break first then used it to maintain low tolerance

First legal, Helth Canada approved products have appeared on OCS (Ontario Cannabis Store). A 510 threaded cartridge containing 80% Delta 8 THC, 15% D9 THC and 5% terpenes. Also there is a soda containing 10 mg D9/20mg D8, 10mg CBD.

I’m fairly sure other Health Canada approved products will follow.
