There are a lot of different extracts made from the cannabis plant. You probably know about CBD and normal THC (Delta 9) unless you’ve been living under a rock, but what about all of these newer cannabis concentrates on the market like Delta 8 THC, THC-O, and Delta 10? The cannabis plant naturally produces over 100 chemical compounds called cannabinoids, which includes THC, CBD, and others. Delta 9 THC is created naturally in the highest quantities and has been favored by the cannabis community due to its strong psychoactive effects it produces on the human body and mind. Since marijuana is illegal at the federal level and hemp cultivation was legalized in 2018 through the Farm Bill, the cannabis industry saw this as a great opportunity. The bill only limits the amount of normal Delta 9 THC in products made from legal hemp flower and doesn’t speak about other cannabinoids at all. This puts Delta 8 THC in a legal gray zone, though some states have already placed bans on the extract since it has risen so quickly in popularity. Some local laws conflict with federal regulations, so many online smoke shops and cannabis retailers will not sell or ship Delta 8 dabs and other hemp derived concentrates to certain states.
Delta 8 THC is actually made using CBD derived from the hemp plant. There are many extraction methods used to procure CBD (CO2 extraction is the most common for commercial CBD products), but once you have hemp flower CBD, it is turned into Delta 8 THC by adding toluene or heptane as a solvent mixed with an acid to create a reaction at the molecular level. This process is called isomerization. Crazy right? That means that Delta 8 is actually one of the many CBD products and you will often see it sold as Delta 8 CBD. If you didn’t realize by now, it requires a lot of steps and is not easy to get Delta 8 THC, which is made in a lab even though it is a naturally produced plant compound. The mixture is then washed to stop the reaction and get rid of any residue left behind on the final product. What you have at this point is Delta 8 distillate, which can be used as is or further turned into Delta 8 dabs like wax, shatter, budder, and more. These different Delta 8 dabs are made by using different combinations of temperature and pressure to achieve various consistencies. And that’s it. You’ve got yourself smokable Delta 8 THC dabs.
If you’re wondering, does Delta 8 THC get you high? The answer is yes and it is great for anyone who doesn’t live in a marijuana legal state or wants to try new therapeutic cannabinoids. Delta 8 THC will give you the same happy, euphoric, uplifting, buzzy body and head high that you’re used to from normal THC, but it is much milder. While you may find this as a bad thing, the milder effects also come with mild negative side effects that many cannabis smokers get such as short-term memory issues and increased anxiety and paranoia. But don’t underestimate these potent products, Delta 8 dabs are highly concentrated and just like normal dabs, should be used by experienced marijuana enthusiasts. Delta 8 THC dabs usually have a slightly milder flavor than normal dabs too. This is because some of the other cannabinoids and terpenes are stripped during the extraction and isomerization process. Many brands typically add terpenes back into the final product to give it an added kick of flavor that is similar to what you’re used to with normal dabs. While Delta 8 THC dabs are not the same as your regular dabs, they come pretty close and any cannabis enthusiast will enjoy at least giving this alternative THC a try.
You know about Delta 8 flower, edibles, tinctures, and Delta 8 THC dabs like wax, but what is a Delta 8 syringe and how do you use it? The no-mess syringe is one of the best options for Delta 8 THC users since the product has clear and easy dosage right on the outside of the syringe so you know exactly how much you’re getting, makes almost no mess when consuming, and is very versatile. The five most common ways to use a Delta 8 syringe is to dab it, add it to a homemade edible recipe, infuse a joint or blunt, create DIY Delta 8 moon rocks, or take a dose sublingually (under the tongue). Sublingual application is the easiest way to get blazed without any effort since all you need to do is portion a dose onto your finger and let it absorb into the soft tissue under your tongue. Making homemade Delta 8 moon rocks and DIY weed edibles are perfect for the crafty types that like to know exactly what’s going into their moon rocks and edibles. Infusing a joint or blunt is also pretty easy and will usually turn out to be cheaper than purchasing an infused pre-roll at the dispensary if you’re up for a little more work. Slightly heat the syringe so the Delta 8 distillate is somewhat pliable. You can either squeeze a line of Delta 8 THC down the center of the joint before rolling or wrap it around the outside of a joint you’ve already rolled to add an extra kick of potency to each hit. Now if you want to dab a Delta 8 syringe, here’s how to do it properly:
Dab pens and portable dab rigs (also known as e-rigs) make dabbing quick and easy. When using a dab pen to consume Delta 8 from a syringe, you can make do with no other pieces of equipment, though a dab tool can come in handy. We recommend using theGrenco Science G Pen Roam, which has a long battery life, custom temperature settings between 600° F and 800° F, and produces super flavorful, large plumes of vapor. Simply open the concentrate chamber and squeeze out the proper dosage for a single dab. Since this will be around the size of half a grain of rice or the tip of a ballpoint pen (yes, that small), it can be easier to portion out a dose on a dab tool first before placing it into the dab pen chamber. Once the dose is inserted, close the chamber and fire up your dab pen! Choose the lowest possible temperature setting to retain cannabinoids and flavor, also known as low temp dabbing. Your dab pen will either vibrate or give you a light to indicate that it’s heated up and ready to dab.
Those who have been dabbing for a while know that nothing beats the large plumes that a dab rig produces. For smooth, cold dabs, we love theRecycling Gripper Dab Rig, which is also super portable at just 6 inches tall. If you’re all about the glassware, we’ve got good news. You don’t need to worry about messy Delta 8 dabs any longer if you use a syringe! The process is nearly the same as dabbing other cannabis concentrates. Here’s how to do it:
