Given the latest craze that we have seen with delta 8 and delta 9 products, it is no surprise that more of us are looking to get a better idea of what these chemicals are and what they do. With the conflicting coverage in the news and online, navigating this topic can be a real challenge.
Today, I would like to explore this world together. There is so much to learn, and I think that hearing about it from someone who can offer some perspectives based upon personal experiences can be quite valuable. So, I do hope that you will stick around and listen to what I have to say!
What is Delta 8?
This seems a natural place to start, so we shall do so. For some background information, look at this link: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9312454/. Fair warning, though, since it is a fairly scientific article, some of the terminology is not overly familiar to everyone. Allow me to explain in slightly less technical terms.
The Latin name for it is delta 8 tetrahydrocannabinol, meaning that it is a type of THC. If you are not familiar with that, THC is the compound in the marijuana plant that gives people the sensation of getting “high,” typically described as euphoria of some kind. However, delta 8 is not the type that occurs naturally in these plants, meaning that it does not fall into the same category in terms of legality.
Why does that matter? Well, since it is synthesized from the hemp plant, it is a legal substance. This means that you can have a similar sensation to smoking marijuana from these products, but it is not exactly the same and it is legal in almost every state here in the US. With that being said, it may still not be a bad idea to research it for your own region, since there are some exceptions.
What Does it Have to do with Disposable Vape Pens?
It is true that most of us associate vaping with nicotine products rather than CBD or hemp ones such as delta 8. However, there are plenty that are designed specifically for this purpose. Take the Hifi Farms cake disposable vape pens – they are one example of the many that have been created to allow users to get a smooth puff of this substance each time that they have one.
Now, there are traditional styles of vapes that offer a similar thing, but they do tend to be more of a hassle. That is especially true when swapping between a juice that is containing nicotine versus a juice containing a hemp product. Since they have different flavors, that can be troublesome.
The disposable varieties still get you plenty of puffs (think the equivalent of a regular pack of cigarettes), and they are not rechargeable. It is essentially a trade off of convenience and simplicity versus longevity. You will need to be the one to decide what matters more to you, so I do recommend that you explore both options.
Why Bother with Delta 8?
The stigma surrounding chemicals like this one tends to make people question why we should even consider trying it at all, let alone in neat and convenient packages such as a disposable vape pen. Well, trust me when I say that there are a surprising number of benefits that can accompany the usage.
Perhaps most importantly comes the fact that it can assist greatly with pain management for patients finding normal treatments difficult or ill-suited for their needs. Many posts and websites are out there on this, such as this one, if you do want to see more about how that might work. While it may not be a viable option for everyone, those with chronic pain may find that it eases their symptoms at least to some extent.
What are some of the other effects? Sleep regulation is another that tends to pique people’s interest. Insomnia is a real struggle to deal with, speaking from personal experience. I searched for years for a way to start adjusting my sleep patterns. As it happens, using products from the hemp plant does tend to help out. This is largely because of their inherently soothing properties.
Just keep it in the back of your mind that sometimes people do experience adverse side effects with THC compounds such as delta 8, so it is worthwhile being cautious the first time that you use it. They could include having nightmares or feeling sick to your stomach, but there are a few other symptoms as well. If you are ever worried, you can visit a hospital or emergency care. However, incidents requiring this are exceedingly rare.
Despite all of the fearmongering surrounding these chemicals, I hope that I have offered a bit more information for you to make an informed decision on whether you want to try it or not. Thankfully, there are many easy methods of ingesting it that are not too expensive and taste quite nice. That is probably why so many folks opt to go for vaping in general.
Thanks to the wide variety of flavors, almost everyone can find something that appeals to them. If nothing else, it is worth exploring the selections and giving it a try to see if it is something that works for you and that you enjoy. After all, it is not like there is anything to lose!
