Upon further reflection, this stuff seems to work well as a way to quit getting high if that's something you want or need to do.
After a week of only consuming delta-8 because of legal and logistical issues I noticed that my brain felt a bit like I hadn't consumed any in a while (clearer), and getting to sleep was no problem. Delta-8 certainly works, but it's ...different.
It might be able to be used like the patch or gum or whatever for stopping tobacco. Granted, THC isn't addictive in a physical sense but quitting it altogether after consuming it regularly for a long time tends to be really annoying for a while.
