Vaping is the hot buzzword today among millennials. Not only does it offers sophistication, but vaping cannabis is also a safer alternative to smoking. For those living under a rock, vapes are electronic devices that heat a liquid (or vape oils) to produce aerosols or vapors. The process of inhaling the vapors to enjoy the benefits of cannabis or nicotine is called vaping. It is now time to take your vaping game to the next level with Delta 8 THC Cart.
What is Delta 8 THC?
Discovered in 1965 by cannabis researcher Dr. Raphael Mechoulam, Delta 8 Tetrahydrocannabinol or Delta 8 THC is one of the many cannabinoids found in the cannabis and hemp plant in small traces. It is pretty similar to Delta 9 THC or just THC, the psychoactive compound of the plant, but has a slightly different chemical structure that makes it a lot less potent. THC is highly regulated, gets you intoxicated, and majorly comes from marijuana plants. The term “delta” refers to the compound’s double bond in its molecular structure. The structural difference between Delta-8 and Delta-9 THC is the location of the double bond on the carbon atom chain; as their names suggest, Delta-8 has a double bond on the 8th carbon chain, while Delta-9 has a double bond on the 9th carbon chain. While this may seem like a slight difference, it can produce different effects on our bodies.
What are the benefits of using Delta 8 THC?
Delta-8 THC produces feelings of euphoria, relaxation, and potential pain relief similar to delta-9 THC, but they are much milder. Its potency has been measured at around 50–70% of the strength of delta 9 THC. To understand how cannabinoids like Delta 8 can benefit us, we must first understand the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a set of cell-signaling receptors that help regulate our bodily activities. It is found in all animals. CB1 and CB2 receptors are the two main types of cannabinoid receptors found in the ECS. CB1 receptors are located in brain cells and throughout the nervous system, whereas CB2 receptors are found in the brain and throughout the nervous system.Delta-8-THC interacts with CB1 and CB2 receptors to help regulate various functions such as pain, appetite, mood, hormones, inflammation, and so on. The research on this wonder drug is still in its infancy to fully understand its potential benefits.
How Does Delta 8 Make You Feel?
Unlike CBD, delta 8 THC is mildly psychoactive. You will not feel as intoxicated or sedated as THC does. Instead, Delta-8 can make you clear-headed and energized. This is excellent news for consumers who want to be buzzed and benefit from cannabis’ medicinal properties but don’t want to pass out or lose their energy- especially during the day. According to a reviewer who has tried vaping Delta 8 cart, “the first time I tried D8, I vaped it before bed, as I typically consume cannabis to help me sleep. To my surprise, I was up until 2 AM reading on my phone! They are definitely not the same.”
What color should Delta 8 be?
You’ll note that many Delta 8 carts on the market come in a variety of colors (clear, rose, or golden like traditional cannabis vape oil). Pure D8 extract begins clear but is particularly susceptible to light, heat, or oxygen exposure when used alone and may turn somewhat pink. The vape oil is stabilized by full-spectrum D8 distillate, which contains CBD, CBG, and trace levels of additional cannabinoids like CBN, CBC, and D9 THC. This is the full spectrum extract we utilize in our vapes at TribeTokes, and it has a somewhat golden tint. As a result, color can suggest a higher-end, cannabinoid-rich product.
Is Delta 8 THC legal?
Delta-8 THC is legal in the United States because it is generated from the hemp plant rather than marijuana. Delta 8 THC is currently legal in several states, but not all. Some states have allowed it only for medical purposes, while many others have placed restrictions on its use. It’s worth noting that Delta 8 THC is only allowed if it’s derived from hemp plants, which contain less than 0.3 percent THC.
Delta 8 vape carts are a comparatively new addition to the vaping market and are not for everyone. If you give it a try and don’t like it, don’t worry; there are plenty of other high-quality vape pen oils to choose from. CBD-based vape oils provide a variety of wellness advantages without getting you high.
People with chronic aches occasionally utilize Delta 8 because they say it helps them deal with it without making them feel high! However, if you’re not sure whether it will interact negatively with any of your medications, we recommend speaking with your doctor first.
