The Benefits of Vaping Delta-8 THC
One of our favorite methods we offer at Blue Ridge Extractions is vaping Delta-8 THC. Since the landmark 2018 ‘Farm Bill’ was passed into law, cannabis products have reached people who didn’t have access to these natural solutions through cannabinoids like CBD and Delta-8 THC. The amount of administration methods have since exploded. People looking for relief provided by hemp-derived cannabinoids can enjoy the methods that have stood the test of time. All with the most recent technological advancements in cannabis delivery.
Delta-8 is the latest cannabinoid to capture mainstream attention. The rise in popularity is due to its relaxing qualities without the paranoia associated with its controversial fellow cannabis compound Delta-9 THC. D8 products are legal in the United States because they are derived from hemp and don’t contain more than 0.3% THC. We are proud to offer our customers a variety of Delta-8 products including an array of strain-specific vape cartridges.
Vaping Delta-8 THC is a discreet, convenient, and efficient way to deliver this exciting new compound directly to the bloodstream. Smoking has been a dominant delivery method of cannabis for thousands of years. While vaping is the latest iteration that gives users the ability to enjoy the unique properties of this incredible plant. Our selection of strain-specific vape cartridges allows users to customize their D8 experience based on their goals.
Benefits of Vaping Delta-8 THC
At Blue Ridge Extractions, we value your freedom to choose how you would like to administer Delta-8, CBD, and other cannabinoids. We offer a variety of hemp-derived products to choose from but believe that the benefits of vaping delta-8 THC offer a unique, superior experience.
Unlike oils, edibles, and pills, vaping gives users the complete cannabis experience. The terpenes that impact the way cannabis products make us feel are lost in many other delivery methods. Vaping Delta-8 allows users to taste and feel the distinction between different strains. Cannabinoids are crucial to delivering the benefits associated with Delta-8 and CBD. But it is the terpenes are what guide the user’s experience.
Another benefit of vaping Delta-8 THC, is that it is more efficient than other methods. When smoke is inhaled, our lungs immediately absorb the cannabinoids and terpenes into the bloodstream. The compounds are then distributed around the body and go to work on our CB1 and CB2 receptors. For more on how our bodies react with Delta-8, CBD, and other cannabinoids, check out our FAQ.
Our Selection of Delta-8 Strains
One of the shortcomings of the industry is the lack of understanding of the role terpenes play. To achieve many of the benefits consumers are looking for, terpenes are necessary. For years cannabis advocates thought that the cannabinoid ratio was the sole driver of the effects. We have recently learned that terpenes play a much larger role in determining what will be felt across the different strains. Understanding the strains and types of cannabis can help consumers choose the right Delta-8 THC vape cartridge.
Indica Delta-8 THC
Stains that feature indica-forward terpenes deliver a relaxing effect. They are commonly used after a long day when the user wants to wind down. Indica strains pair well with a comfortable couch and compelling series on Netflix. Many D8 consumers find that indica strains are best used right before bed. The combination of sedating terpenes and other cannabinoids could help promote a higher quality of sleep.
Terpenes that are commonly found in indica strains are beta-myrcene and beta-caryophyllene. These terpenes are believed to deliver the sedating effects that make indica strains the choice for cannabis users looking to relax or get some quality sleep.
One of our most popular strains that features a blend of indica-forward terpenes is Grape Ape. This is a classic strain known for its carefree, relaxing effects and distinct grape taste.
Sativa Delta-8 Cartridges
Sativa dominant strains are for users looking for uplifting effects. After enjoying a couple of smooth puffs off a sativa D8 vape cartridge, you are going to want to start accomplishing tasks. Sativa strains are known for getting cannabis users off the couch and into the gym, folding laundry, or cleaning the kitchen.
The terpenes that are commonly found in sativa dominant strains are limonene and alpha-pinene. These terpenes are believed to give users a boost of energy and an uplifting experience, perfect for taking before a workout or during a hike.
Our strains that feature Sativa dominant terpenes include cannabis connoisseur’s favorite, Maui-Waui. D8 users who like to incorporate the cannabinoids into their active lifestyle gravitate toward strains that feature an uplifting blend of Sativa-dominant terpenes.
Hybrid Delta-8 THC vape cartridges are a harmonious blend of terpenes featuring the best aspects of sativa and indica strains. Many cannabis users praise hybrid strains as delivering the perfect amount of energy and relaxation to be enjoyed any time of day.
One of our all-time favorite strains is Gelato #33. The hybrid is a testament to modern cannabis genetics perfected over decades of crossbreeding. Our Delta-8 THC Gelato #33 vape cartridge is a great way to experience this incredible strain.
