Delta 8 THC has not been around long, but in its short time on the market, it’s proven to be an enormously popular cannabinoid thanks to its unique effects. Because of its growing demand, it is easier than ever before to find quality delta 8 on the market.
Like CBD (cannabidiol), delta 8 comes in many delivery methods, including edibles, capsules, tinctures, and more. But it’s clear that the majority of delta 8 THC enthusiasts want to vape the cannabinoid, and most do so via a delta 8 THC cartridge. Vape cartridges come in many varieties, act quickly, and are easy to use.
Today, we’ll be taking a closer look at these cartridges to explain how they work, and what makes them so unique.
What is a Delta 8 THC Vape Cartridge?
In short, a vape cartridge is a glass cartridge that contains an e-liquid. With delta 8 cartridges, that e-liquid contains delta-8 extract as its active ingredient. Vape cartridges are disposable, and therefore do not require any maintenance. They simply attach to a rechargeable vape pen device, and once the liquid runs out, they’re completely replaced.
Vape carts contain a coil inside, and this coil gets heated by the power of the battery. The heating process transforms the e-liquid into vapor, which can be inhaled through the cartridge’s mouthpiece.
What is the Difference Between CBD Vape Cartridges and Delta 8 THC Cartridges?
To understand how delta 8 THC cartridges differ from CBD cartridges, we need to understand the differences between delta 8 and CBD themselves, since this is the only difference between these two types of products.
· Delta 8 is psychoactive, while CBD is not.
· Delta 8’s intoxicating properties are about 30% milder than those associated with delta 9 THC, but ultimately, delta 8 will give you a euphoric feeling.
· These cannabinoids also work on different cannabinoid receptors.
- CBD binds to both CB1 and CB2 receptors, while delta 8 seems to focus primarily on CB1 receptors in the nervous system. Thus, they may regulate different processes of the body, with delta-8 seeming to have more of an influence on mood and overall nervous system function.
