When it comes to relaxing after a long day, Delta-8 THC can offer a smooth and simple way to forget about your daily stress and just zen. There are countless products available that range from soft and chewy gummies and silky tinctures to fast-acting vape cartridges and pre-rolled flower joints. Each of these products have different Delta-8 THC contents and will have different reaction times depending on the product. It’s always recommended to start off with small doses until you can accurately gauge how your body will react to the particular product. But what happens when you consume too much Delta-8 THC in a single dose? In today’s article, I’ll be reviewing the extremely potent Delta-8 THC Gummies from FlorBiz. These fruit-shaped gummies have a whopping 50mg of Delta-8 THC per gummy, more than double the traditional amount. Before we get into the actual product review, I’d like to take a minute to go over the FlorBiz website and all that they have to offer.
The FlorBiz Brand
I first discovered the FlorBiz brand while lazily browsing the web for some free Delta-8 THC samples because c’mon, who doesn’t like freebies? FlorBiz was one of the sites that offered a randomly-selected free sample and all you have to pay for is a small shipping fee. I had never heard of this brand and my curiosity got the best of me, so I typed in my credit card details and gleefully waited for my free sample to arrive.
After I had completed my order, I browsed the site a bit more and was astonished at the sheer volume of products available on the site. All of the major psychoactive cannabinoids were available on the FlorBiz site, ranging from edibles like baked goods and gummies to smokeables like flower and vape cartridges. The site was neatly broken down into categories that made for very convenient browsing: by cannabinoid, product type, pick-a-sample, price, and so much more.
One thing I noticed rather quickly was the absence of any product packaging or brand names. All of the cannabinoid-infused products looked very generic in their pictures and I was curious if FlorBiz was a manufacturer of all these products or perhaps a drop-shipper brand. I navigated to the tab labeled “Certificate of Anylsis” and found a somewhat lengthy list of product tests. The tests were displayed via a drop-down tab, but didn’t seem to add up to the amount of products listed on the site. I was intrigued to find a clickable link labeled “Document for Law Enforcement.” Delta-8 THC is legal on a federal level, but it was very considerate of the site to have something handy to show law enforcement exactly what it is you’re carrying or using.
Overall, I was more impressed with the amount of products available rather than the professionalism of the site. I was curious to see how the actual product would be, as the amount of Delta-8 THC was extremely high. I didn’t have to wait long, as my free sample arrived within a few days. As a bonus, I got a free sample of a Delta-9 THC gummy as well, so maybe I’ll review that in a later article. But for right now, it’s time to share my experiences with my free Delta-8 THC gummy sample from FlorBiz!
Product Review: FlorBiz 50mg Delta-8 THC Gummy
As I mentioned earlier, the gummy that I received from FlorBiz has a 50mg Delta-8 THC content. The gummy came in an unmarked resealable pouch, with the words “D8” scrawled in what looked like red sharpie. The gummy was oddly shaped, almost like it had gotten a bit misshapen in transit. It looked like a candied fruit wedge and had a sweet fruity smell.
The gummy was very soft and spongey and was coated in sugar crystals. I popped the gummy into my mouth and was delighted with the delicious flavor. Since there was no specification on what the flavor was, I can only guess that the flavor was strawberry lemonade. If it was, the flavor was spot-on: rich strawberry sweetness with the tartness of candied lemon and no hemp flavor. The consistency was chewy and slightly firm, and I was pleased that there weren’t any pieces that got stuck in my teeth. I detected a faint hemp aftertaste once I had finished chewing and swallowed the gummy, and noticed a light coating on my tongue and teeth. The flavor reminded me of summertime and I was saddened when the flavor finally dissipated. I was impressed with the authentic flavor and absence of artificial flavors, and settled down to wait for the effects to kick in.
I started to feel something after about 30 minutes. I experienced a warm and relaxed euphoria along with a light dry mouth. There was a light pressure in my chest and tingling in my hands, feet, and face. I felt as if a weighted blanket had settled upon me and felt a comfortable couch lock. I enjoyed an enhanced sense of taste, touch, and smell, which ultimately resulted in snagging a few snacks to pacify my munchies. The high intensified after about an hour and I felt as if time had started to slow down. I felt much heavier and noticed that my tongue clung to the roof of my mouth, along with a stronger dry mouth. I started to feel very sleepy but still felt clear-headed. I didn’t experience any blurred vision but my eyelids started to droop as if they were heavy. felt as if I was wandering through a thick mental fog.
One of the more amusing side effects was that everything became funnier and I lost myself in fits of giggling. But after about two hours, that’s when everything stopped feeling funny. I suddenly felt nauseated and extremely dizzy. I groggily made my way to bed and it felt like my whole body was trembling and shaking. My heart was racing and I felt wildly overwhelmed. I had an insane dry mouth that no amount of water could quench (I must have drank an entire bottle in about 15 minutes). The sensation of being overwhelmed descended into paranoia and extreme panic. The room started spinning and I desperately wanted to sleep but felt too dizzy to close my eyes. It felt like a secret door to the world had opened in my mind and I was helplessly falling through a wormhole. The creative and imaginative section in my brain opened and I felt as though life had become way too real to handle. I was curled up in a fetal position feeling the worst paranoia and panic. I don’t even know how I managed to fall asleep but somehow I managed to escape the overwhelming high while I slept.
Now normally once I wake up after having a Delta-8 THC edible, there is either no remnants of the high or a slight “hangover” high that evaporates after about half an hour. Yet with these gummies, I experienced a hangover high for about four hours after I had woken up. This made concentrating at work extremely difficult and I had to battle a hazy mental fog until the effects finally wore off around noon. I was shocked that the effects lasted so strongly for so long and was extremely relieved when the effects finally ceased.
I realize that Delta-8 THC affects every user differently, which is why I wanted to carefully outline all the details of my high in case you experience some or all of these effects. My sweet-spot dose is about 25mg of Delta-8 THC. Before trying these Delta-8 THC gummies from FlorBiz, I had never consumed more than that. A few years ago, I had the unfortunate mishap of consuming too much Delta-9 THC from a Nerds Rope weed gummy (about half of the rope, which is triple the recommended amount). The effects of that experience were way worse than the 50mg Delta-8 THC gummies from FlorBiz, but this definitely came in as the second worst experience I’ve ever had.
Ultimately, I did enjoy the beginning of the high from these gummies, but the ending was extremely unpleasant and I do not wish to try these gummies ever again. It’s always strongly advised not to consume too much Delta-8 THC in a single sitting and now I fully understand why. These gummies come in an extremely strong dose and might be better enjoyed by someone with a high THC tolerance. If you do end up trying these gummies, definitely start off with either a third or a half, but definitely not the entire gummy. The flavor was great and the effects in the beginning were highly enjoyable. But the lack of product packaging, the sheer volume of products on the site but not the same amount of lab testing, and overwhelming effects caused from a high Delta-8 THC content has made me wary of anything from the FlorBiz brand. Is it legit? It depends on your THC tolerance. For me, I don’t ever want to consume these gummies again and I strongly urge anyone who does to proceed with caution.

I’m slightly tempted to try that, this time consuming only a third or a half, but as of right now, I’ll keep my distance.
