Merry Christmas from Denver! It was a wild holiday season for me, but my days were made much brighter by the gift of a care package from Eighty Six Brand, the maker of numerous THC analogues. I was truly impressed by their range of products- there were gummies, candies, rice Krispie treats, and sodas, all ready for me to indulge in! Still, we have to start somewhere, so today I’ll be reviewing their Delta-8 gummies.


  • Concentrated (500mg per pack)
  • Body-centered high
  • Great for sleep and heavy relaxation


  • A bitter aftertaste that seemed to linger in my mouth
  • Can be unexpectedly strong if you’re not familiar with Delta-8

Recommendations: Some improvements to the aftertaste would be great

Props to Eighty Six Brand

These gummies were conveniently packaged, although I always wonder whether it would be possible to switch out the plastic. I was pleasantly surprised to find a QR code on the back that led me to the test results from this batch of edibles. It’s currently a wild west out there in terms of regulating THC analogues, and it was comforting to be able to see that I was actually ingesting what I thought I was ingesting. Props to EightySix for taking the high road and looking after their customers.

The aftertaste can linger for hours

The edible itself was a fairly standard circular gummy. Since I didn’t know how to dose Delta-8, I was unsure whether to take half and wait or to just go for the whole gummy. Although 50mg sounded like a lot, I happily took the plunge for you, my dear reader, and took the whole thing. As I bit into it, there was a decent berry taste that I was satisfied with, but nothing special flavor-wise. After a few minutes, I found that there was a bitter aftertaste in my mouth that didn’t want to go away. I washed it down with some water, but I found that the taste lingered on my tongue for the next few hours.

Nice high for a delta 8 product

Within a half-hour, I was coming up pretty rapidly, and it felt like a classic Indica high. My eyes went droopy, and I felt warm tingles washing over my body. I could immediately tell that I had taken a fairly large amount for my current tolerance, and I was a bit anxious about the full peak. I retired to my bed and enjoyed the relaxation and warmth that the body-centered high gave me.

The full peak came about an hour into the experience, and it was an intense one. I fully admit that I took a bit too much, but I found that my headspace became very spotty. It was difficult to put words together in a sentence, and I made my partner repeat herself many times to get her points across. I believe that this was a consequence of the dose- I’ve since taken a half-dose and felt mostly clear-headed. Still, I caution you to start slow! You can always take more, but you can never take less.

The effects last for 3-4 hours

I was pleasantly surprised with the longevity of the high- I felt strong effects for a solid 3-4 hours, and a lingering high up to the 6-hour mark, when I re-dosed with some classic THC gummies. The spacey feeling never let up, and I was certainly very sleepy the whole time. My partner noticed the same sleepy effect and is now using these gummies for her bedtime treat.

Concluding this review

Overall, I would recommend these gummies for anyone looking to get around those pesky drug laws and have a THC-reminiscent high. Delta-8 doesn’t seem that different from Delta-9, and these gummies pack the right punch to silence anyone who says Delta-8 is milder. It bears repeating- watch your dosage. Just because you’ve smoked a lot of weed doesn’t mean you’ll have a high tolerance for this! Still, I had a great time with these gummies and drifted off to sleep in minutes when I finally laid my head down.
