An Introduction To Delta 8 Cartridges
Before we talk about the delta 8 cart, let’s introduce delta 8. Cannabis is rapidly becoming mainstream. After the introduction of the Farm Bill in 2018, cannabis products have grown in distribution and many derivatives have been made.
The Cannabis plant is a treasure trove of compounds, the most important being cannabinoids. It has hundreds of cannabinoids and more and more research is done on them by the day. With more research, come more discoveries, and the good news is that the discoveries sing nothing but praises, confirming anecdotes about the benefits of these cannabinoids.
And yet, considering the fact that there are hundreds of cannabinoids in the cannabis plant, the popularity curve is more than a little skewed toward cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The latter is the most famous of them, in fact, thanks to its infamous reputation as the compound responsible for the ‘high’ we get when we consume cannabis.
While CBD offers numerous benefits, it doesn’t confer any psychoactive effects, which makes many users feel like something important is missing. As for THC, the psychoactive effects can feel a little extreme. You get a sense of euphoria, but you also have to deal with the lethargy and potential paranoia that follows. Not to mention THC is still illegal in many states.
Introducing delta 8 THC
With the too-little-too-much situation surrounding CBD and THC, we have something of a Goldilocks situation. We need something in the middle that’s just right. That’s where delta 8 THC comes in.
Delta 8 THC is an isomer of THC, and one that’s also rapidly gaining popularity. The thing is, when most people say THC, they are usually referring to the dominant isomer of THC found in cannabis: delta 9 THC. Delta 9 and delta 8 THC are isomers of each other, which is to say they have the exact same number and type of atoms in their molecules. However, in delta 9 THC the double bond is on the 9th carbon atom in the molecular chain and in delta 8 THC it is on the 8th carbon atom. That’s just geek-speak for “they are structured differently despite having the same composition”.
This difference in structure is important. It translates to delta 8 THC having many of the same benefits as THC, but with none of the side effects. For starters, you get a less potent high on delta 8 THC, so you can remain functional even as you enjoy the calming and relaxing effects.
Delta 8 THC cartridges
Delta 8 THC can be consumed in a variety of forms, including edibles, oils, and tinctures. However, one of the latest and most convenient ways to consume it is via vape cartridges. Vape cartridges come with many advantages. By inhaling delta 8 THC, the effects kick in almost immediately. Moreover, cartridges are discreet and can be stored in your pocket, allowing you to take them with you wherever you go. As you go about your daily activities, you can take a few puffs at a time, put the cartridge in your pocket, and go about your day like normal.
So, as you can see, delta 8 carts are a boon. These handy devices help you enjoy your favorite variant of THC no matter where you are. Try one today and see for yourself!
