Delta-8 THC has exploded in popularity during the past few years, offering a more subdued (yet still powerful) mind and body high than traditional marijuana. The lack of paranoia and anxiety has launched Delta-8 THC into stardom, especially for those who seek a comfortable, heady “lift” while still remaining clear-headed and in control. Delta-8 THC products range from softgels, gummies, edibles, tinctures, pre-rolled joints, and vapes. We’ve reviewed all of these types of Delta-8 THC and have taken great care to go over commonly asked questions, such as taste, effects, product packaging, hemp information, and much more. But today, we have a special treat for you. For the very first time, we’ll be reviewing for a brand new form of Delta-8 THC called Vybba Delta-8 Strips! Due to the nature of such a product, there are bound to be readers with hungry curiosity and impatience to know exactly what these strips look like, how they taste, the effects, and much more. This in-depth review promises to answer all of these questions and more! Let’s start off by checking out the company, the product packaging, and ultimately, the actual product review. Hold on to your hats, because this is going to be a wild ride!
Delta-8 THC: A Very Brief Overview
In our last Delta-8 THC review, we went in depth on what Delta-8 THC is and how it affects your mind and body. If you’re unfamiliar with Delta-8 THC or have questions on why this particular product is so popular, I highly encourage you to check out some of our in-depth article about Delta-8 THC, such as How Does Delta-8 THC Affect the ECS, What Using Delta-8 THC Feels Like The First Time, Guide to Delta-8 THC Products on the Market, and A Simple Guide To How Is Delta-8 THC Made. For those of you already familiar with this delightful (and federally legal) cannabinoid, it’s always recommended to start off slow with your dosages until you know how your body will react to it. You can gradually increase your dosage as your body gets more accustomed to it, but keep in mind that taking too much can result in extreme drowsiness, mild anxiety (rare), and other unpleasant side effects. The effects usually wear off a few hours after the initial high and common side effects include drowsiness, dry mouth, the famed “munchies,” and heightened sensitivity. Delta-8 THC is considered the “lite” version of marijuana, and has skyrocketed in popularity due to its ability to deliver a heady high while allowing the user to remain completely in control. And now, without further ado, let’s jump into this fascinating product review, starting with the company information!
The VYBBA Brand
One glance at the company website, and you’ll know you’ve discovered something truly incredible. The use of vibrant colors and stunning graphics speaks volumes about the level of professionalism and quality that comes from Vybba. As a brand new form and delivery method of Delta-8 THC, Vybba displays a picture of their infused strips mid-way down the page, as well as reassurance that this innovative product isn’t a gimmick or overzealous ploy to take your money. Rather, Vybba even goes so far as to break down the timeline of what to expect and when, something I’ve never seen before.
Vybba also describes the intended effects (euphoria, focus, energy, and several others) as well as a decrease in stress, confusion, nausea, and other unwanted emotions that users may battle throughout their day. Towards the end of the page, Vybba also dictates a variety of scenarios in which Delta-8 THC can help in your day: adulting, cleaning, creativity, and even sex! Again, this is something I haven’t seen on any other CBD or Delta-8 THC website, and it was so refreshing to see a company that actually puts thought into how their product can be used and why people choose Delta-8.
The top of the website has several tabs where you can read in-depth articles about what Delta-8 THC is, how it works, its legality, frequently asked questions, and ultimately, how to order. The Vybba strips are sold in three options: a singe pack of 20 strips goes for $45, a three-pack goes for $120 and a six-pack is $210, so trying Vybba Delta-8 won’t break the bank. These dissolving strips are currently the only thing sold on the Vybba website, meaning that they solely specialize in this particular product. The company also goes in depth about their lab testing, cultivation, extraction, and purity, but we’ll get to that further down in the review. But as for right now, it’s time to get to the heart of the review and take this shiny new type of product for a test drive. Let’s begin!
Delta-8 THC Infused Strips Product Review
This was a tricky review being that it’s vastly different from any other type of Delta-8 THC product on the market. I had so many questions about how to use the strips: do I let it dissolve on my tongue like a Listerine strip? Am I supposed to chew it as it dissolves? Will it turn my tongue a different color? What if I don’t like the taste? The list kept going on and on. Thankfully, Vybba includes detailed instructions for consumption right on the back of the packaging: place the strip under your tongue, let it rest there to “activate” twenty seconds, and swallow. I was very surprised to read that the strip must be used sublingually (placed underneath the tongue), exactly like tinctures and oils. Since sublingual products are usually absorbed faster through the mucus membrane, it did make sense that this method would allow the Delta-8 THC to work faster than if it were left on the tongue.
I had to use scissors to open the resealable child-proof pouch, only to find twenty individual packets inside. These tiny packets DID come with a tear-off tab, and they were easy to rip open. My nostrils instantly detected a sweet mint scent wafting from the open packet, reminding me of mint toothpaste. I fished out the thin strip and noted it was a forest green color and tissue-paper thin. I carefully placed the strip under my tongue and was delighted with the sweet minty flavor. While there was a nearly imperceptible scent of hemp to these strips, there was virtually no hemp flavor once I had the strip under my tongue. The strip was easy to hold under my tongue, and had a pleasant intensifying menthol flavor. There was a slight tingling sensation as the strip dissolved, and there was a mounting sweetness that was absolutely delightful. As the strip dissolved, there was a texture that reminded me of the graininess of toothpaste once you finish brushing your teeth. It took all of twenty seconds for the strip to dissolve, and I noticed a light burning in the back of my throat once I swallowed. Aside from that, this was one of the simplest forms of Delta-8 THC I’ve ever tried.
Thanks to the detailed timeline on the Vybba website, I knew what to expect within the first 15 minutes, and was aware of the effects as they progressed. Just as described, I began to notice a gentle euphoria within the first 15-20 minutes of consuming the strip. As the hour wore on, I noticed a heightened sense of touch and I felt relaxed and comfortable. My eyelids felt slightly heavy, yet there was no overwhelming urge to go to sleep, nor were my eyes red and droopy. However, I did not experience a powerful or overwhelming high, even after the hour had passed. Usually my Delta-8 THC highs are filled with drowsiness, heavy relaxation, and weighted sluggishness that makes me want to go to sleep. With the Vybba strips, I noticed that I had better focus and more energy, and I definitely felt “something” different. I would definitely use these strips to accomplish things throughout the day, such as light housework, tedious projects, and tasks that require creativity. Some users may prefer to use two strips, while one is is plenty for many people, depending on your tolerance and how much of a “boost” you may want.
I will say that I tried these strips twice, on two different nights. Once at 10:30 PM, and the other around 11:30 PM. I allotted at least two hours each time to see if the effects would get stronger or overwhelming, but there wasn’t anything more than an increased sense of euphoria and relaxation. No mind-numbing high, dizziness, dry-mouth, droopy eyes, sleepiness, or other traditional side-effects of Delta-9 THC. If you’re feeling a bit skeptical on the psychoactive properties of Delta-8 THC, these Delta-8 THC and CBD infused strips are an excellent choice to “test the waters” of this unique cannabinoid.
Delta-8 THC, as well as all cannabinoids, are not regulated by the FDA. This means that anyone can claim to have a fantastic hemp product that contains a specific percentage and milligram count of the cannabinoid, and you’ll just have to take their word. If that sounds like a lot to ask, it is. That’s why independent third-party lab testing is so important. Notice the words independent and third-party. Virtually any brand can offer lab testing, since hemp products are created in a lab or scientific kitchen. But it’s critical that the lab testing be unaffiliated and unbiased so that the results are honest and accurate. These tests are often expensive and time-consuming, which means that companies that offer lab testing are devoted to quality and dedicated to delivering high quality to their customers. Vybba offers their test results via a QR code on the package itself, but not anywhere on the website. While this does mean you’ll have to purchase the item before knowing what’s in it, Vybba looks to reward customers with this information rather than making it available to just anyone who comes across their site. (Update: The Vybba test results are now available publicly on their website!). The lab tests specifically test for mold, pesticides, bacteria, heavy metals, and of course, cannabinoid potency.
Vybba is dedicated to cultivating organic hemp that is then extracted to create a pure form of Delta-8 THC. Their hemp seedlings are non-GMO and grown on family farms in Washington state that utilize strict planting and harvesting techniques. Once the hemp is harvested, the delta-8 THC is extracted using CO2, a method that is renowned for its ability to pull the therapeutic cannabinoids from the raw plant. Vybba staunchly refuses to add anything unnatural or unsafe to their products, such as synthetic cannabinoids or artificial flavorings. The end result is a premium product that offers a relaxing high that both beginner and advanced Delta-8 THC users can enjoy. The dosing is the simplest of all, users can start with half a strip, one strip (recommended), or even two strips if they are ready for more.
The packaging for the Vybba Delta-8 THC infused strips was every bit as exotic and exciting as the actual product. The packaging reminded me of the plastic dental floss pouches, both in size and texture (think Oral-B flossers). The resealable pouch was a vibrant orange with teal-colored hexagon in the center. The brand name and the product type were boldly displayed in white letters, along with some of the benefits of this particular type of product (rapid onset, elevated experience, and oral activation). A bright red hand shape warned that this product is not intended for kids, and should only be consumed by adults 18+ or as dictated by your state’s laws. The package comes with 20 mint stripes, each strip containing 8 milligrams of Delta-8 and also 4 milligrams of CBD. The back of the pouch displayed a large QR code that, once scanned, will take the viewer directly to the Lab Reports. A large text box displayed the supplement facts, along with the full ingredients list, required warnings, and company manufacturing information. I loved that the company listed the recommended directions for use, as this innovative product may confuse some traditional Delta-8 THC users. Simply place the strip under your tongue and wait about 20 seconds before swallowing. If I hadn’t read this part, I would have placed the strip directly on top of my tongue, much like one of those Listerine oral freshening strips.
The packaging was brightly colored and beautifully designed, and I was impressed with the overall appearance. However, there is one thing I was a little annoyed about. I had expected to be able to open the pouch with a tear off strip. Instead, I was forced to go hunt for a pair of scissors to cut open the pouch before I could utilize the resealable strip. I realize that this may be a security issue so that children don’t get into it, or people might be tempted to tear open the pouch and sample the goods before purchase. However, it was more of a mild inconvenience rather than a blatant outrage. I implore you PLEASE don’t try to use your teeth to open this package, make sure you have a pair of sharp scissors nearby!
I was thrilled to be one of the first users to review these Delta-8 THC infused strips from Vybba. The ease of use, delicious mint flavor, beautiful packaging, professional website, and so many other things made this form of Delta-8 THC truly one of a kind. This is the most discrete way I’ve seen to take Delta-8, and the individual strip packages make it easy to take “on the go”. I would have liked to have experienced a stronger high with more of an oomph, but was very thankful that there were no unpleasant side effects or external equipment required to enjoy these strips. I intend to try these strips a third time at some point in the near future, perhaps around 8 PM. I’m curious to see if the strips require a longer time than dictated on the website, or if there is any change compared to the other two experiences. Delta-8 THC affects each user differently depending on a variety of factors: height, weight, metabolism, age, previous exposure to THC, and many others. If you’re curious about this fascinating form of Delta-8 THC, I highly encourage you to give these Delta-8 THC infused strips a try!
