35% – Percentage of CBD consumers that have purchased psychoactive hemp-derived products

Delta-8 and other hemp-synthesized cannabinoids have become a market too big to ignore. There is significant overlap across cannabinoid use, though it is difficult to discern to what degree delta-8 and emerging cannabinoids are complementary to or competing with the cannabis and CBD markets.

A team of Missouri researchers have figured out a way to distinguish Delta-8 from Delta-9 using common drug testing methods.

The new discovery comes as testing companies have faced challenges isolating the semi-legal Delta-8 from its chemical cousin Delta-9 – the primary psychoactive ingredient in cannabis – in both presumptive and definitive urine drug tests. The findings were presented by its author Dr. Uttam Garg of Children’s Mercy, Kansas City and researchers at the Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine during the 2022 AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo in Chicago this past weekend.

“With our methods, we can detect both Delta-8 and Delta-9 isomers and distinguish Delta-9 from Delta-8,” said the paper’s author, Dr. Uttam Garg of Children’s Mercy, Kansas City. “If someone is using Delta-8-THC, the immunoassay we are using and likely other immunoassays which are out on the market will detect it. Once an immunoassay positive sample has been identified, then you need a chromatographic method to separate Delta-8 and Delta-9 because they are very similar structurally. That’s what we did in our lab—we used immunoassay for initial screening and GC-MS to separate and distinguish the two compounds.”

Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) is an instrumental technique typically used for fast molecular analysis in forensics, environmental monitoring, drug testing of athletes and other applications.

Delta-8 gained more popularity in the U.S. over the past few years after the 2018 federal Farm Bill made it legal to grow hemp. The Farm Bill specifically defined THC as Delta-9, which left Delta-8 out, sparking a grey market of Delta-8 products. Hemp contains large amounts of cannabidiol (CBD), and CBD can be chemically converted into Delta-8, Quest Diagnostics Medical Science (NYSE: DGX) Liaison Jack Kain said in a company blog post last year, “and in recent years, it has grown in production and selling as medicinal or recreational cannabis products.”

Delta-8 is known for giving consumers a milder high than regular pot, but because Delta-8 products are unregulated, researchers have found that many contain toxic manufacturing by-products that make it more dangerous than Delta-9-THC.

“In light of this, testing for Delta-8 is needed to discourage people from taking these contaminated products as a way to circumvent drug tests,” the release said. “Testing is also needed to monitor the spread of Delta-8 and to inform public health efforts to craft better regulations for it.”

Hemp Market

The market seems to be cratering for Delta-8.

Hemp Benchmarks said rates are beginning to slide, with Delta-8 prices falling each month for the past year — down 6% since May to an average tag of $542 a kilogram in June. This represents a 55% drop since the same time last year. Reported deals ranged from $370 to $725 per kilogram, according to the latest benchmark.

Delta-8 THC is illegal in 14 states. Oregon this month banned the sale of synthetic cannabinoids at general retailers – the first state to do so.

Regulators at the Oregon Liquor and Cannabis Commission (OLCC) said that any store without a special license cannot sell Delta-8 products on the open market effective July 1 over concerns about the chemicals used to make artificially derived cannabinoids.

“The supply of CBD was outstripping the demand for CBD,” Steven Crowley, the OLCC’s hemp and processing compliance specialist told the Oregonian. “And so, the people who had CBD on hand were looking for other ways that they could market it. People started working on different products that they could convert the CBD into. This is where you get the Delta-8 THC products.”

CBN – a hemp-derived cannabinoid – will have a one-year “grace period” before it is banned as well, the newspaper reported. The new rules will allow the sale of artificial cannabinoids only in OLC- licensed adult-use cannabis shops and after those products have undergone testing and approval from the FDA. Those who violate the law face fines up to $10,000.

In Colorado, Governor Jared Polis signed into law a measure that authorizes the state to ban the production of “intoxicating tetrahydrocannabinol isomers that originate from industrial hemp or may be synthetically derived.” The measure also establishes a 20-member task force to study those intoxicating hemp products – such as Delta-8 THC and other THC isomers manufactured from hemp-derived CBD – in order to make legislative and regulatory recommendations by early next year.

Editors Note: This is a republished story. 

Hemp and marijuana plants contain many active ingredients. However, a lot of focus is on two specific natural compounds found in these plants – tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). 

Most consumers have recently found out that there are two types of THC molecules in hemp and marijuana – Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC. Here is everything you need to know about these two compounds, including the key differences between delta-8 and delta-9.

THC: Short Recap

If you were wondering what ingredient is responsible for the “high” effect, it’s THC. It is a psychoactive compound found in cannabis plants. Marijuana contains higher concentrations than industrial hemp.

It works pretty straightforwardly. We have the endocannabinoid system with CB1 and CB2 receptors, and THC binds to these receptors and exhibits its effects. When it binds to CB1 receptors, it induces the “high” effect, while CB2 binding induces relaxation. 

What is Delta 8

Delta 8 THC is naturally occurring in cannabis plants, both hemp and marijuana. Although it occurs in very small concentrations, it can still be derived thanks to distillation. It has a unique molecular structure and exhibits unique effects when consumed.

Delta 8 can exhibit very high neuroprotective potential and help relieve chronic pain. There are various Delta 8-based products on the market ranging from oils to edibles. With this in mind, let’s quickly see what Delta 9 is.

What is Delta 9

Delta 9 is also naturally occurring in cannabis plants. The more popularly used term for it is simply THC. Whenever you see an article referring to THC or outlining its effects and benefits, it’s, in fact, Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol. This is the molecule that can induce elation and a classic “high” feeling.

Due to its profound effects, it caught the eye of researchers in the field of medicine. Delta 9 THC exhibits many properties; it can act as an appetite stimulant and prevent nausea, among other things.

Do you remember the Farm Bill from 2018? If one wants to grow hemp or make cannabis-based products legally, the THC levels have to be at 0.3% or less. The bill refers to Delta 9 THC. 

Delta 8 and Delta 9 – Key Differences

From what you’ve seen so far, it is easy to assume that Delta 8 and Delta 9 are two compounds with really similar properties and effects. In terms of molecular structure, Delta 8 and 9 are almost identical apart from a couple of electrons. 

However, there are some key differences that you should know about. 

Anxious and Paranoid Effects

There is a reason the Farm Bill dictates keeping the levels of Delta 9 THC levels below 0.3%. In some people, Delta 9 THC can induce feelings of anxiety. It can also make them feel paranoid for no apparent reason. It can also impact the performance of mental work. The “too much high” effect is only tied to Delta 9 THC.

Delta 8 THC is less psychoactive than Delta 9. People who experience these unpleasant feelings should instead try Delta 8. It is far less potent than Delta 9 and can enable people to enjoy cannabis or cannabis-based products carefree.

Relaxation Effects

Due to its potency, Delta 9 THC is more likely to induce elation rather than relaxation. After taking Delta 9 THC, people report the “high” feeling that can even build up to euphoria. It can elevate your mood. If this is how you imagine the relaxed state, Delta 9 THC may have some answers for you.

On the other hand, if you genuinely want to get rid of the tension without experiencing the “high” effect, Delta 8 THC might be a better option. It has a significantly milder effect when compared to Delta 9

The Effects Build Up

There is one more thing that makes Delta 8 and 9 different. They don’t only induce different effects, but they also do it at a different pace. Delta 9 THC is absorbed quickly, and it can induce the feelings mentioned above quite fast after consumption. This is an important thing to note as it can alter your plans for the afternoon or evening.

Unlike Delta9, Delta 8 THC is a slow kicker. It delivers a significantly smoother experience than Delta 9. After the consumption, the feelings of relaxation gradually come on, and there is considerably less risk that it can induce anxiety. 

To sum up, both Delta 8 and 9 THC are naturally occurring in cannabis plants. Delta 9 THC is the famous THC everyone talks about, while Delta 8 is its less potent counterpart. The critical difference is the pace at which these compounds build up effects. Delta 9 delivers more powerful effects than Delta 8, and it does it faster.

Despite the controversy over Delta-8, sales are beating some popular CBD companies. Hemp Benchmarks has been following the price of Delta-8 within the hemp industry and recently highlighted the company LFTD Partners (OTC: LSFP), whose sales rival many established CBD companies. 

CBD Fever Dreams

When the Farm Bill was passed in 2018, there were high hopes for the CBD industry and in particular for the hemp farmers. Hundreds of acres were grown, but the huge demand for CBD never materialized. There was demand, to be sure, but not at the levels the market had anticipated. This resulted in a glut of CBD biomass in the market and prices plunged. Farmers plowed over crops instead of harvesting due to the cost and many dramatically reduced the acres of hemp they were growing. 

Delta-8 Growth

Then Delta-8 came along and the farmers began to find a new market for their crops. It was discovered that within the language of the Farm Bill, only Delta-9 cannabis was carved out as an adult-use THC product, leaving Delta-8 in a grey area. Delta-8 is often referred to as cannabis light in that the psychoactive response is milder than Delta 9 cannabis. It is also extracted from hemp as opposed to the regular cannabis that produces the typical THC product. This loophole caught many off guard and with little regulation or oversight, the product began to take off. 

Several states have banned the product from being sold due to the lack of oversight. The cannabis industry seems mixed on whether it supports the product or not. Some are happy that it has helped out hemp farmers, while others see it as competition that isn’t subject to the same onerous regulations. In addition to that, the FDA noted that it has received several troubling reports on Delta-8. Seeing a Delta-8 company beat a highly regulated CBD company in revenue has got to hurt.

Lifted Made

LFTD Partners also known as Lifted Made, manufactures and sells branded products containing hemp-derived cannabinoids (e.g. delta-8-THC, delta-9-THC, delta-10-THC, THCV, THCO, CBDA, CBC, CBG, CBN, CBD), e-liquid, disposable nicotine vapes, kratom and kava products. In February 2020, LSFP acquired 100% of Warrender Enterprise Inc. d/b/a Lifted Made (formerly d/b/a Lifted Liquids). It recently announced that it was expanding its operations for the fourth time during the last 18 months, leasing an additional 8,000 square feet in a third building in Kenosha, WI. LSFP has also signed a letter of intent to acquire Savage Enterprises, owner of award-winning hemp-derived products brand Delta Extrax, sub-brand Chronix, Savage CBD, male enhancement products brand Vix, kratom and kava-based products brand Kanna, and plans to enter the California marijuana industry by purchasing Premier Greens LLC and MKRC Holdings, LLC. 

Two weeks ago, the company reported its third-quarter revenue had risen 32% to $8.8 million and net income grew by 40% to $2.2 million. Savage reported that it had revenues of $20 million in the third quarter, but doesn’t look to have Delta-8 products in its portfolio. Still, the pro-forma of the combined companies puts it near a $30 million quarter. 

CBD Companies Struggle

CBD brands have struggled under the massive amount of money it took to get established only to see competition muddy the landscape. CBD was being sold at grocery stores and gas stations. Consumers had no idea whether the cheap CBD at the gas station was the same, better, or worse than more reputable brands. With major restrictions on what CBD companies could say about themselves, consumers couldn’t even do their own research. Websites remain vague and companies that attempt to give consumers as much information as possible often get slapped by the FDA for making claims they can’t support with medical research. 

This year, a well-respected brand Plus Products essentially went bankrupt. Aligning itself with a major celebrity like John Legend didn’t help as the company became overwhelmed with debt. The stock has quit trading as the company restructures. In its last earnings report, Plus only delivered revenues of $4 million for the second quarter. 

While Charlotte’s Web (OTC: CWBHF) reported revenues of $23 million in the most recent third-quarter earnings report, this was down from 2020’s third-quarter revenue of $25 million. Another CBD with a large market share, CV Sciences (OTC: CVSI) reported that sales for the third quarter of 2021 were $5.1 million, which dropped 8% from $5.6 million in the third quarter of 2020. 

FDA Warns About Delta-8

In September, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning about Delta-8 THC noting that the product hasn’t been evaluated or approved by the agency. Granted the FDA’s opinion on anything cannabis-related is received with a healthy dose of skepticism. The FDA still hasn’t made any determination on CBD after years of discussion and research. In the warning notice, the FDA said that from December 2020 through July 2021, it had received adverse event reports from both consumers and law enforcement describing 22 patients who consumed delta-8 THC products and 14 went to a hospital or emergency room for treatment. 19 of these patients said they had eaten delta-8 THC food products. The adverse events included vomiting, hallucinations, trouble standing, and loss of consciousness. In addition to that, the FDA said that the national poison control centers received 661 exposure cases of delta-8 THC products between January 2018 and July 31, 2021, 660 of which occurred between January 1, 2021, and July 31, 2021. Of the 661 exposure cases:

  • 41% involved unintentional exposure to delta-8 THC and 77% of these unintentional exposures affected pediatric patients less than 18 years of age.
  • 39% involved pediatric patients less than 18 years of age
  • 18% required hospitalizations, including children who required intensive care unit (ICU) admission following exposure to these products.

In Closing

CBD companies were already facing a tsunami of challenges and the onslaught of the Delta-8 products has only added to those troubles. Until the cannabis industry decides to take a position on Delta-8, one way or the other, it is likely the CBD-only companies will have to find new ways to succeed. The patchwork approach by some states banning the product, while others allow it only creates more chaos for consumers. In the meantime, it looks as if the lack of regulations and customer demand will keep Delta-8 companies in business and possibly more successful than the CBD companies who are trying to play by the rules.

Hemp Benchmarks has released its October report, with notable points including a 4% decline in observed prices for delta-8 THC distillate for the fourth consecutive month while sales numbers for this controversial cannabinoid made from hemp remain robust. This mirrors an overall dip in rates for CBD distillate, which is at an all-time low despite larger-volume deals. Newcomer delta-10 THC makes an appearance in the Hemp Benchmarks’ report for the month of October, though it is still unfamiliar to many consumers. 

Delta-10, closely related to delta-9, is one of the THC compounds found in hemp and cannabis that is responsible for making consumers feel high or euphoric. While delta-9 is more likely to have an effect on pleasure and memory and delta-8 is often used as a relaxant and sleep aid, some claim that delta-10 enhances energy, creativity, and productivity. (Little is factually known about how this cannabinoid functions in the body or what its effects are.) Unlike delta-9, delta-10 is only found in trace amounts in plant material and requires large amounts of plant matter and significant processing to extract a potent quantity. It exists in the same legal grey zone as delta-8 when derived from hemp and therefore is typically available in states where recreational use is illegal, though this is starting to change. According to Hemp Benchmarks, delta-10 THC Distillate averaged $3,580 per kilogram in October, which is more than four times the average price for delta-8 THC distillate. 

The FDA issued warnings about Delta-8 THC in September, which remains especially popular in states where recreational marijuana use is illegal. Since then, restrictions or all-out bans on delta-8 are being initiated that will likely affect sales of delta-10 as well. Both South Carolina and Texas have taken steps to articulate state-specific policies, with South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson issuing an opinion that the state’s Hemp Farming Act “does not provide an exception for, and does not legalize, delta-8 THC or any other isomer of THC in itself.” 

The Texas Department of State Health Services released an October update which specified that “all other forms of THC, including Delta-8 in any concentration and Delta-9 exceeding .3% are considered Schedule 1 controlled substances.” This is not settling well with some Texas retailers, who pushed back and petitioned for a temporary restraining order against the ruling. The restraining order was denied by a state district judge, rendering delta-8 illegal in Texas, at least for the time being. Meanwhile, the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development issued its own statement that beginning on October 11 “it is illegal for businesses to manufacture, possess, transfer, inventory, sell or give away delta-8 THC or THC-O acetate (a synthetic cannabinoid said to be more potent and have longer-lasting effects than regular THC) without proper licensing from the Marijuana Regulatory Agency.”

Despite this ongoing controversy, growers are dedicating larger portions of their operations to hemp cultivation for extraction and conversion to synthetic cannabinoids as the demand for them continues to rise. The swift rate at which new cannabinoids are being synthesized and new restrictions being issued around their sale and use bodes ill for stability in this corner of the market, though there is no arguing that demand is high, prompting producers to race ahead in search of the next big thing in synthetics.

Delta-8, a psychoactive compound similar in effect to delta-9 (which is what most people are talking about when they refer to THC), has been slipping through legislative loopholes around the country, including in strictly anti-recreational states like South Carolina, Louisiana, and Oklahoma. Even in states where recreational use is legal, delta-8 products are not held to the same legal requirements as delta-9. Though delta-8 has a slightly different chemical structure that supposedly makes it less potent than delta-9, an independent study commissioned by CBD Oracle Lab analyzed 51 delta-8 THC products and found that 76% of them contained illegal levels of delta-9 THC. How illegal? In at least one case, a staggering 7700% over the legal delta-9 limit. The average amount of delta-9 THC in all products tested by CBD Oracle Labs was 6.6%, 22 times higher than the federally legal limit.

Dangerous Delta-9 Levels

So how is delta-8 making it so easily into the hands of recreational consumers, including people who may be particularly vulnerable to its dangerously inconsistent THC levels such as the underage and mentally ill?  The 2018 Farm Bill legalized hemp containing less than .3 percent delta-9, which leaves the field open for delta-8 as long as it comes from hemp and stays under the limit for delta-9. The fact that it is synthetically made have also kept it off of certain regulatory radars, though warnings from the FDA and CDC as well as disturbing testimonials from Delta-8 users are causing some huge blips which may lead to a larger lockdown on what some companies are marketing as “weed light”.

Oracle Labs Tests Delta-8

An investigation from the US Cannabis Council found illegal levels of delta-9 THC in products for sale all over the country, which prompted CBD Oracle Lab to undertake a study to address three primary questions: whether a consumer gets delta-9 when purchasing a delta-8 product; whether a consumer gets as much delta-8 as the company claims, and whether the consumer will get any residues from the manufacturing process alongside cannabinoids. The outcome of the investigation showed a strong presence of delta-9 as well as a serious deficit in the degree and depth of impurities testing that is taking place. Also alarming were labeling inaccuracies and the ease with which minors can obtain these dangerously inconsistent products.

The study breaks delta-9 THC content in delta-8 products by type, revealing that vape pens and concentrates have the highest levels (at 13.11% and 12.51% respectively) and edibles contain the least at .09%. This implies that consumers should assume that vaping products or concentrates, readily available at gas stations and smoke shops alike, will be far above the limit with an average of 9.25% delta-9 content. On average, the products tested were 513 times higher in delta-9 than their reported amounts. In terms of reporting, CBD Oracle Lab also found that some companies fake or manipulate their COA results, and 34 out of the 51 products tested were only tested for potency and not impurities.

As far as delta-8 getting into the wrong hands goes, while there are occasionally age verification systems in place (though only 6 out of the 44 companies whose products were purchased had them), some companies simply use pop-ups asking the user to confirm their age while others use nothing at all. This problem is compounded by product packaging, which is often designed to resemble typical gas station snacks like Cheetos and cereal bars. Young people who use cannabis are particularly vulnerable to the reduced capacity for cognitive and response inhibition caused by THC.

Psychotic Episodes

There is also ample evidence that those with mental illness who consume THC have a higher risk of psychosis or at least psychotic symptoms, with heavy cannabis users experiencing a fourfold increase in the risk of psychosis than non-users.  Consumers shouldn’t rely on the packaging for an accurate sense of delta-8’s effects and how vulnerable they might be to them. Half of the 51 companies studied contained no warning labels at all and some only mention possible “impairment” or “sensitivity”, and as the CBD Oracle Lab study shows, these downplayed side effects can be just the tip of a very large iceberg.

On Tuesday, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning about Delta-8 THC noting that the product hasn’t been evaluated or approved by the agency. Granted the FDA’s opinion on anything cannabis-related is received with a healthy dose of skepticism. The FDA still hasn’t made any determination on CBD after years of discussion and research.

The 2018 Farm Bill that essentially legalized help specifically called out the exclusion of Delta-9 THC. Manufacturers seized on that and decided that Delta-8 could slip through the loopholes since it wasn’t named in the bill. Delta-8 THC is one of over 100 cannabinoids produced naturally by the cannabis plant.

It doesn’t pack the punch of a Delta-9 high, but consumers say it gives a light buzz.  Delta-8 though isn’t easily extracted from the plants and so it’s typically manufactured from hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD). As such, the FDA is concerned that these products get labeled as hemp-derived and some consumers may think there are no psychoactive effects like other hemp products. The products are also marketed as having therapeutic qualities, which the FDA notes are unsubstantiated claims.

Adverse Side Effects

What is troubling are the reports of adverse side effects. In the waring notice the FDA said the from December 2020 through July 2021, it had received adverse event reports from both consumers and law enforcement describing 22 patients who consumed delta-8 THC products and 14 went to a hospital or emergency room for treatment. 19 of these patients said they had eaten delta-8 THC food products. The adverse events included vomiting, hallucinations, trouble standing, and loss of consciousness.

In addition to that, the FDA said that the national poison control centers received 661 exposure cases of delta-8 THC products between January 2018 and July 31, 2021, 660 of which occurred between January 1, 2021, and July 31, 2021. Of the 661 exposure cases:

  • 41% involved unintentional exposure to delta-8 THC and 77% of these unintentional exposures affected pediatric patients less than 18 years of age.
  • 39% involved pediatric patients less than 18 years of age
  • 18% required hospitalizations, including children who required intensive care unit (ICU) admission following exposure to these products.

Added Chemicals

The FDA noted that the natural amount of delta-8 THC in hemp is very low, and also dditional chemicals are needed to convert other cannabinoids in hemp, like CBD, into delta-8 THC through a synthetic conversion. The FDA is concerned that some manufacturers may use potentially unsafe household chemicals to make delta-8 THC through this chemical synthesis process. Also, additional chemicals may be used to change the color of the final product. Since these products are unregulated the manufacturing of delta-8 THC products may also be taking place in unsanitary settings.

Children Targeted

The FDA has also pointed out that the products are showing up in packaging that is appealing to minors. “These products may be purchased online, as well as at a variety of retailers, including convenience stores and gas stations, where there may not be age limits on who can purchase these products. As discussed above, there have been numerous poison control center alerts involving pediatric patients who were exposed to delta-8 THC-containing products. Additionally, animal poison control centers have indicated a sharp overall increase in accidental exposure of pets to these products.”

Editors Note: This is a guest post.

The hemp market is budding with new ways of consuming Delta-8 THC. One of the top-selling items in the market has become the Delta-8 carts. These Delta-8 Carts are the most efficient way to have the most advantage of Delta-8. As the demand rises for the Delta-8 Carts, questions arise about the quality and safety of the product. Delta-8 carts are a safe choice for people for many good reasons. It is a fast-acting, mildly potent, effective, and enjoyable method of taking Delta-8. Here are ten reasons that prove Delta-8 Carts are a healthy choice.

E Cigarette, Vaping, Electronic Cigarette, Vaporizer



  1. Portable- 

Delta-8 relieves you from short-term stress and anxiety. The small size of the Vape carts makes it possible to carry them wherever you go. Before heading out of the home, keep the vaping cartridge in your pocket. You can enjoy the puff any time outside the home. You no longer have to carry the big gummy jars or strain containers. The vape carts are odorless when not used, so you will not worry about the vaping odor.

  1. Affordable price- 

Compared to the other products of Delta-8, the vape carts are cheaper than any of them. It is one of the advantages of using vape carts. In the same composition, you can get the benefits of Delta-8 THC.  The gummies and tinctures can cost you double the price that of vape cartridges. Vaping can deliver you high effects in little time, so why stress on the other products when all you need is in the vapes.

  1. Greater Effectiveness-

If you want to get the maximum benefits of delta-8 along with a little high, then Vape Carts are the right choice for you. The Delta-8 cartridges work by producing vapors of delta-8 content from inside the cart. The higher puff you make, the more Delta-8 THC concentrate gets in your body. The effect is as high as the ten puffs of Delta-8 carts, equal to twenty gummies of 25 mg. The vape carts convert 46% of THC present in cannabis that is larger than the Cannabis joints. They also show faster results than the edible Delta-8 products.

Vape, Electronic Cigarette, Uwell, Tekken, Vaping, Host


  1. Reusability-

With every product of Delta-8, you have to discard them post exhausting. You have to throw away the gummy jar and tincture bottles, but in the case of Vape Carts, you can reuse them. You do not have to discard the complete component. You only detach the cartridge and throw it, the battery and other things remain as it is. Once exhausted, the cartridge gets replaced with a new one. The battery is durable and will last for a longer time. 

  1. Reduced inhalation of carcinogens-

While smoking cigarettes, the smoke produces carcinogens that go into our lungs. Vaping cannabis also releases some toxic carcinogens. These detrimental substances can cause severe diseases like cancer. Reports have proven that those who prefer vaping have lower carbon monoxide levels in the blood. Vaping over smoking helps you breathe better and lessens the chances of carcinogens inhalation. It is also not known to include any harmful toxins.

  1. Better taste-

Smoking cannabis can destroy the taste of the terpenes. It inhibits the savory flavors of cannabis. The higher temperature of smoking kills the taste of the terpenes in Delta-8 THC. Along with the high effect, good taste also matters to the users. With the low-burning terpenes in vaping, you can enjoy the flavor of Delta-8. A modern vaping device comes with a set temperature option so you can fix the optimal temperature for burning the terpenes.

  1. Controlled dosing-

For those who are new to vaping and smoking, the large puffs may cause a problem. The beginners should start with trying small puffs. With experience, they can switch to large puffs. The new day Delta-8 carts come with the setting to control the dose. You can try that to find your correct dosing. With the ease of taking Delta-8 carts, you can maintain the consistency of the dosing.

  1. Ease of use-

Like any other product of Delta-8, you do not need any guidance on how to use Delta-8 carts. It is easy to use and change the cartridge. Unlike the gummies and tinctures, you do not need specified dosing and timing to use carts. You can use the vaping carts whenever you want and adjust the puff amount that suits the body. Open the cart and inhale as much as your body requires. 

  1. Cleaner vapors-

Vaping does reduce the levels of carcinogens produced. It also vapourises clean and high Delta-8 THC. The vapors from cannabis contain fewer toxins than those produced by smoke. It promotes the healthy usage of Delta-8 carts. You should not be worried about any harmful substance coming into the body through vaping. It is a better and healthier habit than smoking cannabis. It prevents you from lung diseases.

  1. Faster pain relief-

Delta-8 is one of the best variants of THC for pain relief. You can add this to your pain relief medication and see the results. Now amongst all the methods, the most effective is considered to be vaping. Consuming cannabis through edibles can cause long delays. You cannot wait for that long in case you are suffering from pain. For faster actions and good results for your pain relief, you should try Delta-8 vaping carts. You can also be free of any worries about the ill effects of smoking. 



Cannabis has become a hot product in the market. People nowadays are using all variants of hemp. The high dosage of any of these may have adverse effects on the body, and hence the legalised concentration is less than 0.3% THC. So You will have to pick up the right Hemp product to avail the benefits of the hemp plant. This way, you can also circumvent the risks associated with it. From all the points made, it is pretty clear that Delta-8 vaping carts are a healthier choice for people than the other forms of Delta-8. You can use the Delta-8 cart without worrying about any health risks.
