Delta 8 THC is often regarded as the friendly cousin to the heavily restricted Delta 9 THC. Marijuana users have widely accepted it thanks to its numerous benefits. Over the years, the demand for Delta 8 vape products has soared and more people are interested in vaping.
This article aims to answer frequently asked questions about Vaping with Delta 8 THC.
How does vaping work?
Vaping is a method of administering a substance through its vapor or gas. A vape quickly heats a concentrated oil of CBD or Delta 8 known as vape juice. A vape is made up of the following parts:
Mouthpiece: The mouthpiece is typically made of glass, plastic, or silicone.
atomizer: The atomizer or heating element vaporizes oil that you inhale.
Tank/Cartridge: The tank holds the Delta 8 oil. Some vapes have refillable tanks to let you enjoy different strains.
Power button/Sensor: The power button/sensor lets you turn on or turn off your vape.
Power source: The power source is a rechargeable battery.
How does vaping affect the body?
When you inhale through a vape, the vapor travels straight to your lungs, and into the alveoli, where it is absorbed into the bloodstream. Here, Delta 8 interacts with your endocannabinoid system(ECS). The ECS is a vast network of neurons found in the brain and the central nervous system and it maintains homeostasis
Two main receptors, CB1 & CB2 bind with cannabinoids to different extents and stimulate various effects on the body. CB1 receptors are mainly found in the central nervous system, and CB2 receptors are mainly found in the peripheral nervous system.
Research shows that Delta 8 binds with the CB1 receptor( although not as strongly as Delta 9 THC) to produce a milder, more clear-headed buzz.
Vaping vs smoking Delta 8.
Both forms of taking Delta 8 have their pros and cons, so choosing depends on your personal preference. Vaping gives smoother drags that are more flavorful than smokes. The smoke from a joint contains burnt particles from the rolling paper and may irritate some users.
Their effects on the body are also different. Smoking Delta 8 flower tends to kick in faster and last only for a short while. You will feel the effects of vaping longer than smoking. In terms of convenience and ease of use, vaping takes the cake. Vapes are more discrete and easier to transport.
Where can I buy Delta 8 vape products?
You can buy Delta 8 vape products in marijuana dispensaries or online stores. Before you buy any Delta 8 product, you need to be sure you are buying from a reputable brand. Vapes are made with delicate parts such as the heating element. Poor quality vape oil cartridges may contain heavy metals from heating elements, so you must go for the best products.
How long do Delta 8 vape carts last?
Vape carts are stable when stored properly. Environmental factors such as light and heat can cause the active compounds in your Delta 8 vape cart to degrade to other less potent compounds. The average shelf life for a cart is 12 months. As long as you store your product in a cool dry place, you should be able to enjoy vaping for months.
Disposable vape pen vs disposable cart.
Vaping gives you a lot of options to use Delta 8. The three most common vape products are disposables pens, vapes, and cartridges. Regular vapes are rechargeable and come with changeable tanks. You can change the CBD oil on your regular vape whenever you want. You can see this section as a mini Delta 8 disposable review.
Disposable vape pens are like regular vapes and sometimes come with a rechargeable battery. However, they differ in size and usage. When you exhaust the content of the pen, you dispose of it.
Cartridges, on the other hand, are small vials of Delta 8 oil with a screw-on end. They attach to a 510 battery for power. They are smaller than pens, require little maintenance, and are super easy to use. Disposable pens and cartridges are great for first-timers or people who occasionally vape.
In the long run, disposables are not cost-effective as regular vapes. If your intended mode for taking Delta 8 is through vaping, we recommend you invest in a quality vape.
