Frequently Asked Questions About Delta-8
What is Delta-8?
Delta-8 THC is a naturally-occurring chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. While similar in its chemical makeup to the psychoactive Delta-9 THC, it is less potent, resulting in a high with minimal drowsiness and paranoia, allowing relaxation and creativity to flourish
Is Delta-8 legal?Yes! Because Delta-8 THC is derived from hemp that contains less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC, it is in legal accordance with the 2018 Farm Bill.
Do I need a medical recommendation to purchase Delta-8?No, you don’t need a medical recommendation. However, laws regarding hemp and THC vary by state, so you may want to check your state’s specific regulations.
Is there an age requirement to purchase Delta-8?For purchase or consumption of any hemp or THC product, you need to be at least 21 years old.
How is Delta-8 created?
Delta-8 THC is a naturally-occurring cannabinoid, found in the cannabis plant. Because it is found naturally in very small concentrations, our facilities utilize isomerization, a molecular isolation process involving acid and heat, that can produce large quantities.
All of the Delta-8, HHC, and THC-O products you’ll find on our site contain less than 0.3% THC and are derived from legal hemp that is grown and cultivated in the USA.
Is Delta-8 safe?

How do I recharge my disposable vape pen?To recharge a disposable vape pen, you can use any compatible Micro-USB cable (not included). Please keep in mind that our disposables are NOT meant to be refilled.
How will my products be shipped?Your order arrives via USPS, typically within three to seven business days. Included with your order is a copy of the product’s certificate of analysis (COA), detailing exactly what you’re getting in each package.
What is a Certificate of Analysis (COA)?
Certificate of Analysis (COA) is a lab report from an accredited laboratory that details the number of various cannabinoids and other substances that are found in a product.
According to state law and various other industry-wide regulations, a COA should highlight the following:
The cannabinoid profile is the primary way to ensure a product’s purity and potency by measuring the active cannabinoids in a sample.
Terpenes are the aromatic elements found in hemp plants that give them their distinctive scents and flavors. Terpenes can affect the type of “high” you feel.
This measures the safety of the product, testing if the sample contains harmful contaminants such as heavy metals, bacteria, microbial life, mycotoxins, and pesticides.
How do I read the test reports (COAs)?When reading a COA, there are three main factors you should look for:
- The THC (Delta-9) content should be less than 0.3%, the legal maximum.
- The total Delta-8 THC, THC-O, or HHC should be within 20% of the advertised amount.
- The finished product should be free of contaminants like heavy metals, microbial life, and pesticides
How are your products tested?All of our Delta-8 products are third-party lab tested for cannabinoid potency and terpene profiling. Our products are guaranteed to be free of contaminants such as heavy metals, bacteria, microbial life, mycotoxins, and pesticides.

What is a Delta-8 Syringe?Our Delta-8 syringes are 1ml Luer-Lock syringes—complete with a 14-gauge, blunt-tipped spout—that contain your favorite strains of Delta-8 distillate for use wherever and however you choose
How would I dispense a Delta-8 syringe?Delta-8 THC distillate tends to cool quickly, which can make dispensing it difficult. Before attempting to force anything, place the sealed syringe in a bath of hot water for about 15 minutes to allow the oil to warm up.
How much of the Delta-8 syringe should I use?Unlike our Delta-8 vape cartridges or disposable vapes, the distillate in our Delta-8 syringes is extremely viscous, making the oil more concentrated even at a lesser volume. We recommend using a conservative amount of your favorite strain as a finishing touch to whatever consumption method you choose. If you decide to dab the contents, consider using less than you normally would and working your way up.
How do I store a Delta-8 syringe?Before storing your Delta-8 syringe, ensure that any excess distillate has been wiped away from the blunt-tipped spout with ethanol or another solvent. Then, re-cap the syringe and place it upright in a room temperature, controlled setting.
Delta-8 Disposables FAQ
Can you refill a disposable vape device?Unfortunately, our disposable devices cannot be refilled. For your own safety, please do not try to open the device, as it is meant to be a single-use experience.
How many puffs can I get off a disposable vape device?Standing at 800mg of Delta-8 THC, our disposable devices offer the average user about 500 puffs. Keep in mind that the intensity with which you’re inhaling may cause a variance in the number of puffs.
How can I tell if the device is empty?If you’re taking a hit and nothing’s coming out, chances are your device is empty. Before heading over to restock on another, though, make sure to check that the device is fully charged.
How should I store the device when not in use?When not using your disposable vape pen, make sure it’s stored in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight and dramatic temperature changes.
How do you enjoy a Delta-8 disposable device?Our Delta-8 disposable devices can be enjoyed much like any other vape. Since they’re an all-in-one system, simply remove the device from its packaging and inhale away! Increase your dose by taking more hits to achieve the desired psychoactive experience.
HHC Disposables FAQ
What is HHC?HHC, or hexahydrocannabinol, is a naturally-occurring minor cannabinoid that is a hydrogenated form of THC.
Is HHC legal?The 2018 Farm Bill effectively legalized all hemp-derived cannabinoids and byproducts. Therefore, on a federal level, HHC is legal. This legality varies from state to state, so please double check your home state’s regulations.
How is the HHC high different from a Delta-8 high?HHC typically produces a more mild, cerebral high compared to Delta-8 or Delta-9 THC. Many users compare it to the effects of a Delta-9 sativa strain. Delta-8 THC, in comparison, offers a more relaxed physical high, similar in some ways to an indica.
That being said, everyone processes cannabinoids differently, so your unique experience may be different from those of other users!
Will HHC show up on a drug test?While there is more research to be done on this subject, initial information suggests that HHC does not break down into 11-hydroxy-THC as most THC variants do. Therefore, it’s generally unclear whether or not someone who uses HHC would pass or fail a standard drug test.
To stay on the safe side, we recommend that those who undergo frequent drug testing avoid our HHC disposable vapes until more information surfaces.
THC-O Disposables FAQ
What Is THC-O?Often referred to as THC-O, THC-O acetate is a synthetic hemp-derived cannabinoid.
How is a synthetic cannabinoid legal?At Eighty Six, we add a small amount of Delta-8 THC into our THC-O disposable vape pen formulation to maintain the product’s legality. That being said, the psychoactive effects can still be attributed to the THC-O itself.
What does a THC-O high feel like?While the effects of THC-O are often compared to those of psychedelics, it is inaccurate to suggest that this compound produces a hallucinogenic experience.
Since this cannabinoid is synthetic, it embodies the characteristics of Delta-9, Delta-8, Delta-10, and HHC, offering a stronger high than you’d typically experience with any one of those compounds on their own.
You can think of the psychoactive experience as being similar to one you would feel after consuming a significant amount of THC. That being said, the effects can vary by individual depending on tolerance and other factors.
