Just How Safe Is Delta-8?

Is Delta-8 safe? Simple cause-and-effect means that as cannabis reform progresses, so does our understanding of the plant. As research advances, your average American develops a deeper understanding of the different cannabinoids.

While you already should be familiar with CBD and THC, and even some of the minor ones like CBG, CBC, and CBN, how familiar are you with Delta-8 THC?

There are quite a few brands out there that have begun to embrace Delta-8 products — but are they safe? Does Delta-8 pose any sort of safety concern? What are the musts you need to know before trying it? We’re covering all that and more. Let’s go!

What Is Delta-8 THC?

Just like the Delta-9 variety, Delta-8 THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is a naturally-occurring cannabinoid found in both hemp and cannabis. While both variations of THC deliver a psychoactive buzz, Delta-8’s most common difference is the intensity of the high. Because of this decreased intensity, Delta-8 may be a safer alternative to traditional THC.

As it provides a significantly less intense high than Delta-9, Delta-8 is safe to consume even if you accidentally take too much of it.

Delta-9 THC is known to cause negative side effects in some people, like paranoia, rapid heart rate, sweating, high blood pressure, and more. While this only affects a small fraction of people, this makes answering the question of whether THC is safe a bit more subjective.

Fortunately, Delta-8 is a different compound. Users report experiencing zero negative side effects from it. In fact, it’s one of the cannabinoid’s biggest selling points. Finally, a consumable cannabinoid that can get someone high without the risk of paranoia. The future really is now.

What We Know About the Safety of Delta-8 THC

As far as Delta-8 THC is concerned, there have been over 200 peer-reviewed papers published on the cannabinoid since its discovery back in the ‘70s. While we absolutely need more randomized, clinically-controlled trials on the subject, what we’ve seen so far gives Delta-8 an incredibly high safety profile.

The Typical Experience of Delta-8

We get reports from our Delta-8 users of what they experience with our products, and the vast majority report lighter, smoother, and more pleasant effects than the compound’s Delta-9 cousin.

What Is a Delta-8 Vape Cartridge?

Disposable, with a precise amount of distillate, a Delta-8 THC vape cartridge is an e-liquid cartridge with Delta-8 as its active ingredient. The distillate is then vaporized from a device battery and coil. When it comes to Eighty Six, we house our potent and pure Delta-8 distillate in authentic CCELL® cartridges, delivering a powerful, leak-free experience.

By inhaling vaporized distillate, you get near-immediate effects, as opposed to edibles or tinctures. We do our due diligence to offer safe Delta-8 products.

Are THC Carts Safe?

Again, the answer is a bit subjective, especially given the new reputation vape cartridges have after the 2019 Vitamin E Acetate scandal. It’s easy to see how popular Delta-8 THC is becoming, especially with its accidental legality.

While we cannot legally guarantee the safety of our Delta-8 THC vape cartridges, we take extra special precautions to ensure our production is up to the enormously high standard we’ve set for ourselves. Our Delta-8 cartridges are nontoxic and not known to produce adverse side effects. You should, however, consult your doctor before taking Delta-8 just for safety’s sake. Remember, everyone is different and you may or may not be on medication that could cause side effects if taken with Delta-8.

To truly understand the safety of our Delta-8 cartridges, though, you must first understand how they’re made. We extract the 0.1% or less of Delta-8 THC found in USA-cultivated hemp through a tedious, costly method. It involves a lot of hemp.

Eventually, we extract the Delta-8 to create a product worth putting through to the next step. It’s there that the extract is refined of any pollutants or contaminants and tested for safety.

This ensures the Delta-8 is separated from the rest of the plant matter and verifies the potency and purity of the product. We want you to feel confident that our products will deliver a safe experience.

Ready to Take the First Step?

Buying safe Delta-8 THC cartridges online is possible when you go through the right sources. We make sure to recommmend the importance of getting each of our products batch-tested through an independent, third-party laboratory. We can’t say all Delta-8 cartridges are created equal, but we can say that our users are experiencing a safe and wonderful distillate that’s ready to take the world by storm!
