FAQ | DELTA-8



What is Delta-8?

Delta-8 is a powerful cannabinoid native to the cannabis flower. Delta-8 is an isomer of CBD, which is a derivative of hemp and CBD, a cannabinoid found in hemp, and is found in our products with less than 0.3% Delta-9-THC. In other words, Delta 8 is sort of a middle ground between hemp, CBD and THC-Delta-9. 

 

Is Delta-8 the same as THC?

According to The National Cancer Institute, Delta-8 is defined as an isomer of hemp "of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) with antiemetic, anxiolytic, appetite-stimulating, analgesic, and neuroprotective properties." They also stated that "this agent exhibits a lower psychotropic potency than Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-9-THC), the primary form of THC found in cannabis." 

So, essentially, Delta-8 is similar to Delta-9-THC found in Cannabis, but it also "exhibits a lower psychotropic potency" and is found to be chemically different than Delta-9-THC. 

 

Will Delta-8 get me high?  

It is important to understand that Delta-8 THC is chemically different from Delta-9-THC by only a few atomic bonds. Most users claim they experience a mild psychoactive effect in comparison to the psychoactive effect of Delta-9-THC. 

 

Will I pass a drug test if I use Delta-8?  

Again, in order to use Delta-8, it is vital to understand that Delta-8 THC is chemically different from Delta-9-THC by only a few atomic bonds. While our products contain a value of 0.3% or less Δ9THC (or no more than 0.3% Δ9THC), there is a small amount of Δ9THC that may cause you to fail a drug test. If possible, please consult the administer of your drug test in order to receive further clarification.

 

What do I need to use Delta-8 products?

Our Delta-8 cartridges are designed to attach to any standard, 510 threaded vape pen or vape device. If you do not have a vape pen or device that can attach to our Delta-8 cartridges, you can typically find a solution at your local vape/smoke shop.

 

How much Delta-8 is in each cartridge?

We happily provide third-party Certificates of Authenticity (C.O.A.'s) for our customers to review and analyze. You can find exactly how much Delta-8 is in our cartridges by reviewing these lab tests mentioned above.

 

What are terpenes? Which terpenes are used in your Delta-8 cartridges? 

According to Leafly, terpenes are defined as, "aromatic oils that color cannabis varieties with distinctive flavors like citrus, berry, mint, and pine" and they are secreted in the same glands that produce cannabinoids like THC and CBD. 

Terpenes were initially developed by plants for the adaptive purpose of repelling pests and predators. There are over 100 terpenes found in the cannabis plant and every strain of the cannabis plant contains a "unique terpene type and composition". Nowadays, terpenes are used to create scents, flavors and, occasionally, different feelings or sensations.

Our products proudly feature terpenes found in the strains Grandaddy Purp, Strawberry Cough and Cali Orange Kush.

What do I do if my Delta-8 device becomes clogged?

First, it's important to understand that this is very common with thicker liquids such as Delta-8. However, this is very easy to fix once you know what to do! The best tip for making sure your cartridge or device stays unclogged is to properly store your cartridge/device upright in a room temperature setting. If you are still finding your cartridge/device becoming clogged, you may just need to warm up the liquid so that the mouthpiece has proper airflow. Sometimes, the liquid can end up in the mouthpiece which is the reason why it is becoming clogged, but this is completely normal. To fix this issue, you can either warm up your device by taking a few 3-second puffs until you begin to feel some type of airflow from the device. Another option is to warm up your device with a hairdryer or by placing it in a warmer location. Overall, these should warm up the liquid so that the airflow returns and you can begin to use your device as normal.
