Delta 8 Smoke Guide

Can Delta 8 be smoked and what are the effects of hemp derived Delta 8? If you too are wondering, since Delta 8 THC smoke continues to be top-of-mind for many new users, as experts in psychoactive cannabinoids, we want to share more on the topic to give you the information you need before purchasing. Smoker friendly Delta 8 has become a popular method for consumption, and we'll provide all the information you need for these particular types of cannabinoids.

What is Delta 8?

The cannabinoid ∆8-tetrahydrocannabinol (delta-8-THC) is one of the many cannabinoids that is found naturally occurring in both marijuana and industrial hemp. The chemical compound of ∆8-tetrahydrocannabinol (∆8-THC) has a very similar chemical structure of its cousin, ∆9-tetrahydrocannabinol (delta-9-THC). With a similar compound and chemical structure of Delta-9 THC, it's no wonder that people gravitate towards ∆8-THC due to the similar psychoactive effects as the main component that gets you in marijuana -- Delta-9 THC!

Due to innovation with cannabis manufacturing, cannabinoid extraction technicians have now devised effective chromatographic methods to transform hemp-derived CBD into hemp-derived Delta-8-THC without synthetics, and while keeping you compliant with the federal 2018 Farm Bill. The conversion process of hemp CBD to ∆8-THC marks one of the greatest innovations of our time and has led way to a new hemp category in cannabis contract manufacturing.

What is particularly interesting is that the cannabinoid profile of ∆8-THC is so similar to that of Delta-9, which is the abundant cannabinoid in industrial hemp, but is also explicitly regulated to the .3% threshold in the Farm Bill. With the passage of the Farm Bill, it provided a path for legal CBD and delta-8 cannabis to hit the market, while abiding by the federal government regulations of the .3% Delta-9 THC limit.

Partly due to some bad actors in the industry, some state laws have bans on hemp. Unfortunately some manufacturers have been caught creating a synthetic cannabinoid in a lab with harmful chemicals which casts doubt in the consumer's mind and as the industry as a whole. That's why we want to share some of the facts that our industry desperately needs so that you can go about your purchase with all of the valuable information at hand!

Delta 8 benefits are derived from the quality, industrial hemp flowers from the start. Since our bodies naturally have an endocannabinoid system, cannabinoids found in hemp harmoniously interact with our body's system to contribute to homeostasis and balance in the body. The psychoactive cannabinoid is no different, and beyond the positive health effects, it also provides a pleasing euphoric "high" experience for the user, too.

Below is a breakdown based on the pros and cons of smoking ∆8-THC:

Pros *Cons
psychoactive effects Increased heart rate
aromatic experience Red eyes
blissful experience  
medicinal benefits  

* Adverse effects of ∆8-THC are not commonly reported. With ∆8-THC being a relatively newly rediscovered cannabinoid, studies are underway to research the psychoactive cannabinoid in-depth. Adverse side effects will be updated with new information. If you have a scholarly research-based finding, we encourage you to email us the evidence at support@dharmad8.com so that we can update the page accordingly.

Note: bad effects of ∆8-THC as reported to the media typically involve users not following age restrictions.

Delta 8 Smoke Pen Alternative

If you're looking for how to smoke Delta 8 oil, we'll point you in the right direction because you can smoke Delta 8 oil in most states. To do so you must first have a Delta 8 smoke pen and then use Delta 8 vape juice by connecting it with your battery. Vape pen form isn't the best, however, due to the introduction of extra ingredients (eg artificial ingredients) required to vape.

Instead of Delta 8 vape, we offer HHC vape cartridges which provide similar effects but are legal in all US states to purchase and use as directed.

 

 

D8 Questions Answered

We're happy to share what we've learned over the years. Below are some of the other pointed questions that we often get asked.

 

Is Delta 8 safe to smoke?

Delta 8 safe to smoke is what you want if you're going to smoke in the first place. If you have had a bad experience with ∆8-THC in the past, no wonder you might be concerned if it is ∆8-THC that is ok to smoke, in general.

Beyond the safety concerns and associated health risks reported on some of our competitors products, flower is the safest form of the smokable cannabinoid, if not more safe to use than vapes.

We encourage you to rid yourself of the ∆8-THC bad to smoke (there's a lot out there!) and get the ∆8-THC safe to smoke because it does exist!

 

Does Delta 8 make you high?

Yes, it does get you high. The component in marijuana and hemp that has traditionally been credited to making you high is the Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content contained in the plant. THC comes in many varieties, and Delta-9 THC is the form of THC which is federally regulated not to exceed .3% in hemp products in order to remain legal.

Actual marijuana and hemp contain more than 100 naturally occurring cannabinoids, including both Delta-9 THC (D9) and ∆8-THC (D8). Concentrations in marijuana and hemp vary, however, D8 THC is legal as long as the D9 portions do not exceed the legal limits. There is currently no legal limit for D8 so it can be an additive for a very psychoactive product which does get you high similar to the use of marijuana.

 

What smoke shops sell Delta 8?

Delta 8 in smoke shops comes in many varieties and strengths due to the nature of being independent outlets targeted to reach local customers. D8 from smoke shop outlets offer similar products but may or may not have the data to back up third party lab tests, depending on the shop.

Smoke shop D8 flower options vary by state. This is due to the varying state laws surrounding flower, gummies, carts and more. If you do reside in a legal D8 state, we encourage you to consider our D8 smoke shop online to make the process simple for you while having the option to easily review third party lab results before making a purchase decision.

 

How to smoke Delta 8 without coughing?

When you inhale smoke a cough reflex in your airways can be caused by the sensory nerves due to smoking. This is considered a normal response and scientists are still researching more on the cause of coughing due to cannabis and hemp-related smokable products.

To smoke without coughing, simply try reducing the amount of smoke on inhalation until you find the right serving amount per puff without triggering the cough reflex.

 

Does Delta 8 smoke smell like weed?

To many customers, yes, it smells a lot like weed and provides similar psychoactive effects for the user.

 

Can you smoke Delta 8 and weed?

You can do what you want, and yes, many users in legal D9 states believe that D8 combined with D9 provides the next level of euphoria. If you're ready to try it, get ready for the next episode -- hey, hey, hey, hey!

 

Can I smoke Delta 8 everyday?

You can smoke it as regularly as you'd like. Think of it in terms of other legal cannabinoids to use such as CBD. We use D8 multiple times a day, just for fun!

 

Can I smoke Delta 8 on a tolerance break?

Yes, you can smoke D8 on a tolerance break from Delta 9. Both forms of THC metabolizes similarly, however, if you're looking to take a one week THC tolerance break, there shouldn't be anything wrong with making the switch in order to rebuild your tolerance.

 

Can you smoke Delta 8 in the military?

In the military, there is a "zero tolerance" policy and you wouldn't want to fail a drug test unless you run the risk of ruining your military career. Due to how D8 metabolizes in the body as THC metabolites (similar to D9), it could definitely show up in a drug test.

With our research, the safest bet is to treat this a hard "no" -- you can, but you shouldn't smoke D8 if you're in the military.

 

Can you smoke Delta 8 with a CDL?

Similarly to those serving in the military, drivers with a CDL are also subject to unannounced drug tests. Of course, you should never take D8 before driving heavy machinery -- especially a big truck -- but with a CDL, you also have to do testing even when not on duty. Unfortunately, D8 can show in drug tests so you should not smoke D8, if you're an active CDL holder.

 

Can you smoke Delta 8 and drive?

No, you should never smoke D8 before driving or operating heavy machinery.


Can you smoke delta 8 on probation?

The other day, my cousin asked, "Can you smoke Delta 8 while on probation?" The answer to him was "no", and the reason why you shouldn't smoke D8 while involved in the legal system is that D8 can make you fail a standard drug test due to the THC metabolites which is how the body metabolizes both D8 and D9 cannabinoids.

 

Can you smoke Delta 8 while pregnant?

No, you shouldn't take any form of D8 product while pregnant. Potential complications and side-effects to you and your baby are major risks why not to smoke D8 while pregnant.

 

Can you smoke Delta 8 while breastfeeding?

No, you shouldn't use any form of D8 product while breastfeeding. There are risks of passing on some of the psychoactive cannabinoids and THC metabolites to your child which isn't safe to do if you are breastfeeding.

 

Where can I smoke Delta 8?

Newcomers always want to know where you can smoke D8. Smoking in your residence, away from children under the age of 18, seems to be the safest bet. However, some states also allow smoking D8 in public.

 

Can you smoke Delta 8 in public?
