Every body metabolizes differently. For some, D8 has no affect at all while for others it hits them like a ton of bricks whether smoked or eaten and not always due to tolerance.
My mother can eat edibles all day and barely get stoned but she smokes half a bowl and she is high as a kite.
I myself am the opposite, especially when it comes to D8. Which due to me knowing how the sausage is made I almost never smoke, but do enjoy to eat.
You could ask John, Paul, sally, Betty, etc and get different answers from all.
Typically, I’ve noticed that for D8 especially it tends to have a more psychoactive affect for more people than not when orally ingested than smoking.
Something about when it passes through the liver thc is converted into an even stronger molecule. I would imagine this is the case for D8 thc as well as D9
