What is Delta-8?

Delta-8 is a natural legal cannabinoid similar to the more well known Delta-9 THC which is commonly found in large quantities on marijuana plants. Delta-8 THC however has historically received significantly less attention than Delta-9 due to its smaller presence in marijuana plants.

The effects of Delta-8 THC are similar to those of Delta-9 with a few exceptions. Delta-8 has been found to be marginally less potent than Delta-9 but has received praise by many customers due to its ability to deliver a more predictable, less anxious, and shorter high. Many regard Delta-8 superior to Delta-9 for these reasons as they seek the psychoactive or medicinal abilities of Delta-9 with a more relaxed headspace that allows them to still be productive and not be 'stoned' all day. 

Is Delta-8 Synthetic?

Synthetic cannabinoids like K-2 and spice are federally illegal substances. Delta- 8 on the other hand is a naturally occurring cannabinoid in hemp and marijuana.

Will Delta-8 pop on a drug test?

Delta-8 THC will appear on a drug test. It produces metabolites similar to those produced by Delta-9 and therefore will produce a positive result for marijuana on drug tests.

Is Delta 8 legal in my state?

Why is my cartridge clogged and what can I do about it?

Clogging occurs when excess vapor condenses along the walls of the inner cartridge. When enough of this vapor solidifies into oil, the buildup can block the airway and make it difficult or impossible to draw air through the mouthpiece.

To prevent the problem you must reduce the buildup of vapor oil along the walls of the cartridge. You can do this by continuing to suck air through the cartridge for a few seconds after releasing the button. By circulating more air through the mouthpiece you are siphoning excess oil that would otherwise stick to the sides. 

Taking softer hits where you pull air through the mouthpiece slowly will also help prevent this problem by ensuring more of the oil gets vaporized and less solid oil clogs the airway.

If your cartridge is already showing signs of blockage, you can remove solidified oil clogging the airway by sticking a thin object through the mouthpiece and swapping the sides for residue until you have removed enough for air to flow freely through the airway.

Why does my cartridge taste burnt?

A burnt taste happens when the coil has not been primed and the cotton inside the cartridge has not had the opportunity to soak in the THC oil. This happens because the cartridges are commonly stored and shipped upside down to prevent the possibility of leaking. This leads to the drying of the cotton which is vulnerable to burning without the insulation of oil. You can prevent this by heating your cartridge on your battery before use and insuring that the mouth piece has been pointing up-right a sufficient amount of time to allow for the oils to soak the cotton.
