Cannabis Trends Started in America: Vapes, Edibles, and Delta-8 THC

When it comes to starting global cannabis trends, America is like the big old light outside that all the fireflies keep trying to get at. Sure, other countries have their own trends, but on a global stage, no other country dominates like the US. In terms of cannabis trends started in America, perhaps the biggest are vapes, edibles, and delta-8 THC.

Are you familiar with one of the biggest growing cannabis trends in America? Delta-8 THC is giving regular THC a run for its money, and establishing a new way of using cannabis. With less psychoactive effect, and a clear-headed high, delta-8 offers most of the same benefits as delta-9, and without the associated anxiety and paranoia. If this sounds good to you, we’ve got great delta-8 THC deals for you to go ahead, and try it out for yourself.

Vapes

One of the biggest cannabis trends to gain popularity in America before going international, is the cannabis vape. The idea of vaping materials is not new, and has been traced back as far as ancient Egypt, around 1554 BC, when hot bricks or stones were specifically mentioned for use with inhaling black henbane vapors.

I bought my first weed vaporizer in 2004. I was on a trip to Los Angeles at the time, and I was checking out head shops, since we didn’t have as many back East, where I’m from. At the time, the idea of vaporizing anything wasn’t on my mind, but once it was explained to me by the salesperson inside, I immediately saw an answer to the growing issue I was having smoking flowers in pipes and bubblers. It was killing my lungs, and I knew it.

I was sold almost instantly, and shipped the Vapor Brother’s box vaporizer back East, along with the small stash of smokable herbs (non-cannabis) that came with it. At the time, the vaporizer was still patent-pending, which was emblazoned on the side of the product. I spent years explaining to people what it was and what it did.

When I moved away from the US in 2010, I didn’t bring my vape, thinking I could pick up a new one where I was going. I found this to be untrue in the end, as at that time, the idea of vaping anything was almost nonexistent. It wasn’t until the growth of the e-vape market for tobacco that vaping really caught on, replacing both cigarettes and joints for many people. But in 2010, it was still mainly an American thing.

The Vapor Brothers vaporizer was well-built, and probably would have lasted the rest of my life if I hadn’t confused the electrical information, and plugged it into the electrical socket of a 230v country, without an adapter. Novice mistake, I know. Around that time I was able to replace it, but only by ordering online, as no local store sold such products yet. Since that time, I’ve used a range of vaporizers, with my current one being the Dynavap M. When it comes to cannabis vaporizers, I was one of the first to get in on the new trend, and even now as vaping has been spreading globally, it still remains bigger in the US than anywhere else.

This can be seen in studies like this one, which compares smoking patterns between the US, Canada, and England. As of 2019, when looking at the past 30 days, 30% of US respondents reporting vaping, while only 18.6% of Canadians vaped in that time, and 14.3% of the English constituents. It can be seen again in this market report from 2019, which shows North America accounting for 49.2% of the global cannabis vape market.

Edibles

The ancient history of edibles goes back pretty far too. Some of the earliest references date back to around 1500 BC in China, where cannabis was used as a tea. These texts were written in the past tense, leading researchers to believe that the practice actually predates this time. There are also plenty of references to it by the year 1000 BC, when it started being used as bhang by the Hindu culture in India. This drink remains popular in India today, and is one of the reasons for the current language in the Single Convention on Narcotic Substances treaty.

But that’s ancient history, and we’re more interested in the growing culture of edibles today. If we skip to the 1800’s, the start of modern cannabis edibles can be seen in Paris, by elitist book writers who met at Club des Hachischins (hash-easters club) to drink hash-infused coffee and teas, and eat hash-infused candy. And it was here that the current edibles movement started, by way of an American woman named Alice B. Toklas.

Toklas was the life partner of author Gertrude Stein, and became part of Paris’ art and literature society in the first half of the 20th century. In 1954, Toklas published the book The Alice B. Toklas Cookbook, which contained her recipe for ‘Haschisch Fudge’. While they are called ‘brownies’, her concoction is not quite brownies at all, and uses ground flowers over hash. This might not have started the fad it did, if it wasn’t for Peter Sellers, and his 1968 movie I Love You, Alice B. Toklas, which features an uptight attorney who eats Toklas’ special brownies. This was the birth of the ‘pot brownie’, which became a staple in US cannabis culture, especially with the rising counter-culture of the 60’s, and the general hippie movement.

cannabis trends edibles

This was followed up in the early 1970’s by Mary Rathbun (Brownie Mary), a cannabis activist who began selling cannabis brownies in San Francisco, mainly to AIDS patients. Around this time, American tourists began asking for – and getting – cannabis brownies in Jamaica, as the locals were happy to make them for tourists, even though it was not a part of local culture. Today, the use of cannabis edibles in the medical cannabis market, has exploded into a market all its own.

Right now, it’s not easy to find current data on cannabis edible markets globally. Apart from wild future predictions – that are generally never correct – there isn’t a lot of consistent information about edible usage in the last few years. Even so, reports that have come out, roundly state that North America has the biggest market, and that it will likely stay this way for the foreseeable future.

Delta-8 THC

The thing about vapes and edibles is that, though they started as US cannabis fads, they have since become global trends. When looking at current cannabis trends in America, the biggest standout is delta-8 THC, and its still so new, that it’s like going back in time to Los Angeles in 2004, and seeing the new vaping machine with the ‘patent pending’ on the side. It’s new, and it’s catching on like wildfire here… but it hasn’t made it around the world just yet. In that sense, delta-8 is the trend that’s waiting to explode.

Delta-8 is a naturally occurring derivative of delta-9 THC, the THC generally associated with the cannabis plant. When delta-9 comes into contact with oxygen, it oxidizes by losing electrons, which changes the formulation ever so slightly. Chemically, this change in formulation, is nothing more than the changing of a double carbon bond from the 9th carbon atom on the chain (where it is for delta-9), to the 8th carbon atom on the chain. It’s chemical structure of C21H30O2 is actually unaffected.

What makes delta-8 interesting? For one thing, that slight chemical change affords it some slightly different abilities from delta-9. It causes less psychoactive effect, which is optimal for medical patients who do not want the strong psychoactive effects when getting treatment. It’s also associated with less anxiety and paranoia, also beneficial for users who have issues with anxiety from delta-9. On top of that, it’s known for producing a more clear-headed and energetic high, which means, not only will it not couch-lock a person, but it can be used for athletic activities. Apart from all that was just mentioned, it actually has similar, if not nearly-identical, properties to delta-9, and has already been shown to help with nausea, vomiting, appetite stimulation, inflammation, anxiety, and neurodegenerative diseases.

The trend of delta-8 was started in the US as a result of the 2018 US Farm Bill which legalized the cultivation of hemp, and production of hemp-based products. As delta-8 can be sourced from any delta-9, the ability to produce it from low-THC hemp, fit it into a legal loophole, and allowed for a semi-legal production of THC. Its actual legality is questionable, as the allowable limit for THC in hemp-based products is .3% from beginning to end of processing, meaning that simply using plants with lower THC amounts isn’t helpful if the product itself, or any point in the processing cycle, involves going over this limit.

This is added onto by the idea that all synthetics are automatically illegal, as the definition of ‘hemp’ does not cover synthetics at all. And even though delta-8 is naturally occurring, it occurs naturally in such small amounts that human help is required in order to produce large enough amounts for use. This calls into question whether it could be considered a synthetic. Neither the DEA’s Interim Final Rule, or the recent USDA Final Rule, have done anything to clarify this point. There also has been almost nothing done to curb the growing industry, which says something for how much the government sees fit to do anything about it.

These legal ambiguities are worldwide for delta-8, and this could halt its spread recreationally. On the medical front, however, delta-8 provides enough different benefits from delta-9, that it can offer improved experiences for patients. And this should make it one of the biggest global cannabis trends (that was started in America), within the next few years.

Conclusion

Things change and morph over time. What starts as a trend in one place, can turn into a worldwide fad over night. Such has been the case with cannabis trends like vaporizers and edibles, which gained popularity in America, before becoming global phenomenon. And such will likely be the case with delta-8 THC. After all, no one ever said the US was the most important country, but no one stopped looking to it for trendsetting ideas, either.

How to Test Delta-10 Products to Ensure They Are Real

What to do when a substance is unregulated, but flying off the shelves anyway? The best answer is to make sure there’s some method to test it, to confirm that it is what it’s supposed to be. This is the case for newer forms of THC currently hitting the market. Now, a laboratory has put forth a way to test the authenticity of both delta-8 and delta-10 products, to ensure they are real.

With new ways to test delta-8 and delta-10 products, getting quality vapes and oils is getting much easier. Both of these new THC versions provide slightly different benefits from delta-9, and can be beneficial for people experiencing too much delta-9-related anxiety. We’ve got great delta-8 THC deals for you to check out what it’s like to use an alternate form of THC.

What are delta-8 and delta-10 THCs?

Delta-8 THC – Delta-8 THC is a naturally occurring derivative of delta-9 THC, the most commonly understood cannabinoid of the cannabis plant. Delta-8 is produced through oxidation when delta-9 THC comes into contact with oxygen, causing small amounts of it to lose electrons, which converts it into delta-8 THC. The only structural difference between the two, is the placement of a double carbon bond. For delta-8, it sits on the 8th atom in the chain, and for delta-9, on the 9th. The chemical structure for both is: C21H30O2.

The two compounds are very similar, producing many of the same medical effects, however, they have some stark differences as well. Delta-8 THC produces less psychoactive effect, so users don’t experience as intense of a high. It also causes less anxiety and paranoia in users, making it the optimal answer for cannabis aficionados who experience a lot of anxiety with delta-9. Delta-8 is also associated with a more clear-headed and energetic high, something that makes it better for physical activities, even athletics.

Delta-8 THC is not newly discovered, but has been known about since around the time delta-9 was found. It was partially synthesized by Roger Adams in 1941, with total synthesis established by Raphael Mechoulam in 1965, along with delta-9 THC which was isolated first in 1964. It was even the subject of medical testing, particularly by Mechoulam, who established delta-8 THC as a treatment for the nausea and vomiting associated with cancer treatments in kids, actually showing an elimination of vomiting in the children. As we know already though, the world was slow to catch on.

Delta-8 made a resurgence recently with the application of the 2018 US Farm Bill which opened the door for industrial hemp cultivation, and production of hemp-based products. As a naturally occurring derivative of THC that can come from hemp, but one that requires human processing in order to create large enough amounts for use, delta-8 THC might fit into a legal loophole – but not for sure. This has not been specified further to give clarity to the situation by either the DEA’s Interim Final Rule, or the more recent USDA Final Rule. Until the definition of ‘synthetic’ is updated to identify if human processing fits the definition, delta-8 will likely remain legally ambiguous.

Delta-10 THC Delta-10 THC, though nearly identical in structure to both delta-8 and delta-9 THCs, is a little different. The first difference should be obvious. The double carbon bond sits on the 10th atom in the chain. However, more importantly, it cannot be created on its own in nature. It is a 100% synthetic compound that requires human help for chemical processing, which puts it in a different category than its previously mentioned counterparts. We’ll get to why this matters in a second, but for now, let’s take a quick look at the strange story that brought us delta-10 products.

Delta-10 THC was brought to scientific attention later than delta-8 and delta-9, and happened as part of an accident at the company Fusion Farms, in California, in the year 1980. California is the location for raging forest fires, and flame retardant chemicals are used frequently to limit, or stave off, the damage of these fires. Fusion Farms was in the business of creating cannabis oil extracts at the time, and didn’t realize that their outdoor flowers were being contaminated by these (toxic) chemicals.

No one thought it would be an issue at the time, and the company personnel continued producing the oil, just to find strange crystals that had never been seen before, forming. Upon further and more intricate inspection, it was found that these crystals were actually a different form of THC, this time, the never-before-seen delta-10, with the double helix on the 10th atom. So, unlike it’s THC brothers already mentioned, delta-10 can only be synthesized by way of a chemical catalyst, in this case, flame retardant chemicals. Other, safer catalysts, have been used since that time.

Unlike delta-8 and delta-9 which are naturally occurring, and therefore capable of falling under the definition of hemp, delta-10 does not. As such, it remains regulated under DEA criminal code 7370 which lists anything not under the definition of hemp, to be a controlled substance. This goes for all synthetic THC compounds. Whereas the Farm Bill allows hemp derivatives with up to .3% THC, it does not cover synthetics at all, and this means that regardless of the THC quantity in the product, or where the product is sourced from, it’s still illegal.

In that way, delta-10 does not fit into a legal loophole, and remains a schedule I controlled substance for now. Of course, lots of cannabis products fit under this definition federally, but with the growing number of locations in the US and worldwide that have approved legal medical or recreational cannabis programs, the use of delta-10 is perfectly fine in many places. Plus, with such constant changes, and an inability to catch up legislatively, it’s quite possible that being federally illegal won’t stop the growing delta-10 market at all.

How to test delta-8 and delta-10 products

It should be clear from everything just written, that these two compounds are highly unregulated, with confusion about the legal loophole of one, and even more confusion online about the illegality of the other. With no government standard for the production of these products, or standards for final products, users are at the mercy of sellers and their claims, which can often be a dicey prospect.

In fact, without regulation, when dealing with extracts of these kinds, it’s hard for the buyer to know they’re getting the right product at all. Think about how easy it is to buy a vape cartridge without really knowing what’s inside? Sales industries – especially unregulated ones – are not generally known for their complete upstandingness, often passing off fake or low-quality products since, in the most essential way of putting it, no one is legally watching.

And this is where ACS Laboratory comes in. In an effort to institute some sort of testing ability to confirm that these substances are really these substances, ACS created the Potency 12 test to identify delta-8 and delta-10 products. ACS is a DEA-licensed, 3rd party, independent testing facility that provides analysis for products in the cannabis industry.

With the invention of Potency 12, ACS now provides an answer above general industry standards, which haven’t caught up to these new products yet. The Potency 12 test “specifically targets and separates Delta-8, Delta-9, and Delta-10 THC”, according to ACS Laboratory’s principal scientist, Aixia Sun, who also serves as a certified lab director for cannabis. She went on to say, “Many labs cannot test Delta-10 without a DEA license and often misidentify lesser-known analytes as Delta-9 in the process.”

In answer to the question of what creates this difficulty in testing, Sun continued, “The problem is Delta-9 and Delta-8 THC are positional isomers, making it difficult for laboratories to separate the two during testing. Two Delta-10 THC stereoisomers are also challenges because they are so elusive that laboratories often misidentify them for CBC or CBL using the industry-standard methodology.”

ACS isn’t just looking for ways to identify these compounds, it also looks to ensure certain levels of safety. One of the things it continues to do, is develop new and improved safety tests to make sure extracts don’t contain residual solvents in them. The Potency 12 test is actually an offshoot of the standard Potency 11 test, which is already capable of quantifying the total of 12 different cannabinoids: Delta-8, Delta-9, Delta-10, THCA, THCV, CBDA, CBD, CBDV, CBGA, CBG, CBN, and CBC, in products.

delta-10 THC

According to ACS Laboratory president and founder, Roger Brown: “As the hemp industry evolves, laboratories must continuously re-evaluate methods to ensure they are producing valid results… Laboratories who fail to rise to the occasion will ultimately put their clients at risk.”

Conclusion

When it comes to new products in an unregulated market, it can really be a free-for-all, with anyone capable of putting out a halfway decent product (or half-way decent looking product), edging in, with little regard as to what they’re passing off to customers.

This makes it great to have some way to test delta-8 and delta-10 products to separate good from bad (or better from worse). ACS Laboratory and the Potency 12 test inject a little more clarity as to the quality of products on the market, how many fakes are flying around, and where to find the best products. It’s nice to know that if you’re being sold a delta-8 or delta-10 THC product, that its authenticity can now be verified.

The Legality of Delta-10 THC – Where It Stands

The internet is abuzz with talk of the newest THC to hit the market, delta-10, but unlike it’s more well-known THC alternative delta-8, the recent DEA Interim Final Rule and USDA final rule, have done nothing to increase the legality of delta-10.

The family of THC is growing, with newer version delta-8 THC becoming a rather big deal recently. Why? Because unlike delta-9 THC, it produces less psychoactive effect, and a more clear-headed experience. In fact, we’ve got some great delta-8 THC deals for you to try it out yourself.

When it comes to the legality of cannabis, and compounds like delta-8 and delta-10 THC, things can get confusing. While it seems there is much misunderstanding on the differences between the newest members of the THC family to make it to the public – delta-8 THC and delta-10 THC – there is one fundamental difference between the two which effects legality, and puts delta-10 in a different category.

Delta-8 THC does fall into the industrial hemp loophole according to some – though this is technically STILL up for debate, but delta-10 actually does not, and does indeed remain federally illegal. And it’s not unclear legislatively. Let’s take a look at why.

2018 US Farm Bill

First, let’s take a look at the legislation that brought delta-8 THC into the spotlight. Delta-8 THC is a naturally occurring, oxidized version of delta-9 THC, the standard THC of marijuana. What this means is that when delta-9 comes into contact with oxygen, small amounts (and we’re talking extremely small amounts), lose electrons, to form a slightly different, and more stable compound, delta-8 THC.

delta-10 vape

The delta number – 8 or 9 – refers to where the double carbon bond occurs on the chain, with it falling on the 8th atom for delta-8, and the 9th for delta-9. The most important takeaway so far? It occurs naturally on its own, and does not need to be made in a lab.

The 2018 US Farm Bill legalized the production of hemp products so long as the THC content is no more than .3%. As per the law, the definition of hemp is “the plant Cannabis Sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.”

Since delta-8 THC can be sourced from any delta-9 THC, whether it comes from high-THC marijuana, or low-THC hemp, it is legal according to the definition of hemp, landing it squarely in the industrial hemp loophole. Is it naturally occurring the way we use it? No, it’s not. Since the amount naturally produced by oxidation of delta-9 THC is miniscule, it does have to be produced through a processing method that involves human help. For this reason, some people stand on the side that delta-8 is synthetic, and that changes things a bit.

What is delta-10, and how is it different?

Though the name ‘delta-10’ is only becoming familiar to the public now, it was first discovered back in 1980, and this was done accidentally. It was found in California as a result of something completely unrelated – forest fires. The company Fusion Farms was in the business of making concentrates at the time, and its outdoor flower supply got contaminated by the flame retardant chemicals that were being used to avoid or subdue these fires. This all happened unbeknownst to the company workers who continued the process of producing the extracts.

What they found during this process, were unfamiliar crystals. The end result of the study of these new crystals, was that they were a new form of THC that had been synthesized, this time with the double bond on the 10th carbon atom.

What does this mean about delta-10? It means it’s chemically a derivative of delta-9 THC, but unlike both delta-9 and delta-8 THCs, it cannot occur on its own making it a purely synthetic cannabinoid. In this case, the synthetization process occurred by way of exposure to a catalyst, which was flame retardant chemicals.

As far as the effects of delta-10, it’s hard to say. Plenty of research has been done into delta-9, and there is a growing body of research being done on delta-8. But delta-10 hasn’t reached that point, so little can be said about exactly what to expect. The general thought is that it will hold the same basic qualities of its counterparts delta-8 and delta-9 – which themselves are very similar, but specifics really cannot be stated.

In terms of personal experiences, those are, indeed, difficult to find as well. In order to experience a product, it has to be available. In a new market, it can take time for word to spread, and for products to go out, be used, and for reviews and testimonies to make it to the internet. Right now, with the exception of scattered, not-very-specific mentions, there isn’t much to go on yet.

As time goes on, there will surely be a bigger supply of online usage information, but right now, products have not been circulating widely enough for this to happen. There is an issue that could effect how quickly it can be circulated though, as there is a legality issue with delta-10 THC, though this is not necessarily a deal-breaker in the end.

Legalities – how delta-10 and delta-8 are different

One of the most important things to understand about the 2018 Farm Bill, is that it doesn’t cover synthetics. It just doesn’t. It’s super fantastic that it says that products can be made from hemp derivatives so long as the THC content is not more than .3%, but this only accounts for natural derivatives. According to the DEA Interim Final Rule, the definition of hemp is not changed, and the recently released USDA Final Rule, does nothing further to change definitions either. As such, right now legally,

“The [2018 Farm Bill] does not impact the control status of synthetically derived tetrahydrocannabinols (for Controlled Substance Code Number 7370) because the statutory definition of “hemp” is limited to materials that are derived from the plant Cannabis sativa L. For synthetically derived tetrahydrocannabinols, the concentration of D9 -THC is not a determining factor in whether the material is a controlled substance. All synthetically derived tetrahydrocannabinols remain schedule I controlled substances.”

The actual definitions of ‘tetrahydrocannabinols’, are materials “…naturally contained in a plant of the genus Cannabis (cannabis plant), as well as synthetic equivalents of the substances contained in the cannabis plant, or in the resinous extractives of such plant, and/or synthetic substances, derivatives, and their isomers with similar chemical structure and pharmacological activity to those substances contained in the plant…”

legality delta-10

This definition puts synthetics and non-synthetics together. And if you’ll remember, the definition of hemp, is for compounds directly sourced from the hemp plant. As the definition of hemp does not cover synthetics, all cannabis synthetics remain illegal federally as per the previously stated law.

As an only synthetically-derived cannabinoid, this squarely answers the question of the legality of delta-10 THC, making it strictly federally illegal. Why does this not entirely apply to delta-8 THC? Because delta-8 THC is naturally occurring. The current USDA ruling did nothing to clarify the legal loophole of delta-8, with some still saying because its naturally occurring, it’s legal, and others pointing to the processing necessary to create it, making it synthetic.

Right now, delta-8 remains gray area, but unless the definition of hemp changes to include synthetics, the legality of delta-10 is not as gray, and the compound doesn’t make it into the industrial hemp loophole.

The Legality Of Delta-10 THC – Conclusion

There you have it… delta-8 is still gray area depending on whether it gets defined as a synthetic or not. On the other hand, the legality of Delta-10, as a purely synthetic cannabinoid, is different, and the compound remains illegal on a federal level. Luckily, with a growing number of legalized locations throughout the US and the rest of the world, there are still plenty of markets that can legally sell this option. And since laws are still forming and kinks in this industry have a long way to being worked out (as evidenced by the new USDA ruling which does nothing to clarify delta-8 further), there should be plenty of ways to obtain this newer version of THC, for anyone who wants it.

Sparing 420, Vape Ban Goes Into Full Effect 4/27

Out of all the major couriers, United States Postal Service had the latest cutoff date before the looming vape ban goes into effect. But here we are, the time has finally come and we’re now just shy of a week before we can no longer order vape products with the same ease and low prices that we’ve grown accustomed to.

At least they let us have 420, right? Already, Fedex, UPS, and a few other delivery services have began regulating the shipment of vape products under the new PACT Act, and the USPS is set to join them in about 1 week. As part of the amended PACT (Prevent All Human Trafficking) Act, the deliver of “ENDS” products directly to consumers will be prohibited or very strictly regulated.

The term ENDS stands for Electronic Delivery Nicotine Systems, but the term is used loosely to include “any electronic device that, through an aerosolized solution, delivers nicotine, flavor, or any other substance to the user inhaling from the device,” including “an e-cigarette; an e-hookah; an e-cigar; a vape pen; an advanced refillable personal vaporizer; an electronic pipe; and any component, liquid, part, or accessory of a device described [above], without regard to whether the component, liquid, part, or accessory is sold separately from the device.”

USPS was last to follow suit, but come April 27th, they will be amending their regulations as well. If a courier decides to continue shipping vape products, they will be required to pay extra fees as well as checking ID and getting signatures at the time of delivery. It’s a very costly waste of time, so most companies are choosing to avoid dealing with these products altogether.

With no major carriers willing to move vape products, businesses are now stuck navigating both the new PACT Act requirements and finding a new way to ship their products.

The Vape Ban Explained

This vape ban is not a ban in the true sense of the word. It’s a ban on the shipping of vape products, not on the actual use, production, or sale of them. And because cannabis vape products fall under the general term of ‘tobacco products’, it doesn’t actually specify anything about cannabis, if we’re choosing to get technical here.

The ban is for “tobacco” vaping products being shipped through UPS, FEDEX, USPS, and other major couriers. This does not mean companies cannot sell products, or ship them through the mail through a small private company, but it does mean they will need to scramble a bit and figure out what they will do before

In a way, it’s a ban that isn’t technically a ban, as there is no ban on any company or individual. This means the US government is not trying to legally stop people from using these products, or companies from making them, but it does seem to be trying to determine how the public can get products, and what products will be available to them. Overregulation for the sake of overregulation.

Final Thoughts

It’ll be rocky at the beginning, companies finding ways to get their products to consumers, and consumers trying to figure out the fastest and most affordable way to get what they need. For now, your best bet is to stock up and take advantage of all the 420 deals before the vape ban goes into effect. If you have a good amount of Delta 8 vape carts in your stash, that should buy you enough time until your favorite companies find a new way to ship your favorite products. Thanks to the unwavering adaptability of the cannabis industry, that shouldn’t take very long to do.

Delta-8 THC and Athletics – Why the Two Go Together

For many people, the idea of smoking cannabis and exercising, are not things that go together. However, as cannabis becomes more popular for its medical benefits, how it can be useful for physical activities is becoming more clear. While it might not be beneficial to consume any kind of cannabis prior to exerting oneself physically, something like delta-8 THC and athletics might just be a great combination.

Are you an athlete who is interested in seeing if delta-8 THC can help with your athletic performance? We have some great delta-8 THC deals to get you started. Even if you’re not an athlete, take advantage of our deals to get some of the best delta-8 THC products currently on the market!

Special offer: Delta 8 vape cartridges – only $10/cart!

Delta-8 THC

Before getting into why delta-8 THC might be good for athletics, let’s take a look at exactly what this compound is we’re talking about. It’s not delta-9 THC, but it’s also not far off. Delta-8 THC is a naturally occurring derivative of delta-9. When delta-9 THC oxidizes upon contact with oxygen, it loses electrons, and the compound changes. The change can be seen specifically in where the double carbon bond occurs. In delta-9 THC, it occurs on the 9th carbon atom in the chain, for delta-8 THC, it happens on the 8th.

It seems this one minor difference, actually causes quite an impact. Delta-8 THC and delta-9 THC have many of the same medical benefits, including help with nausea and vomiting, particularly related to cancer and AIDS treatment cases, as well as appetite stimulation. They both have antimicrobial properties, benefit disorders like epilepsy, and have shown strength in dealing with neurodegenerative diseases.

However, they have important differences as well. Delta-8 THC is known to produce less psychoactive effect, and to cause less anxiety, panic, and paranoia behaviors. Users have reported a more energetic high than associated with most forms of delta-9, and a more clearheaded high, which might help indicate why delta-8 THC is possibly beneficial for athletics.

delta-8 THC and sports

Is delta-8 legal?

The question of delta-8 legality is its own mess, with no clean-up just yet. The whole reason delta-8 became widely known, is because of the 2018 US Farm Bill which legalized hemp, and products derived from hemp for different purposes. Now, since delta-8 THC can be sourced from any delta-9 THC, it doesn’t matter if it comes from high-THC marijuana plants, or low-THC hemp plants. So, if it’s sourced from low-THC hemp plants, it falls into a legal loophole. THC might be schedule I, but products derived from hemp, are not.

To attempt to clear it up, the DEA issued an Interim Final Rule, which was meant to shed further light on the topic. It didn’t really do that at all, making it even more complicated. The Interim Final Rule states that THC and all synthetic derivatives are still federally illegal, regardless of sourcing. However, delta-8 THC does not require being made in a lab, as it is naturally occurring, and this would leave it as an exception to this rule. On the other hand, since it occurs at such a low rate, it is often produced in a lab in order to speed up the process and attain a greater amount of the compound. Some might see this process as producing a synthetic. And so, delta-8 THC remains in gray area, with no further explanation or definition that would help explain legality.

And though it hasn’t yet spread that much outside of the US, delta-8 THC businesses are flourishing within the US, with little – if anything – being done to stop them. In fact, the best the government could recently do, was institute a vape ban, in the form of a tobacco vaping ban which affects all tobacco and cannabis vape products, as cannabis falls under the category of tobacco products according to the Tobacco Control Act of 2009. The ban – Preventing Online Sales of E-Cigarettes to Children Act, isn’t a ban at all, as nothing was outlawed including buying, selling, or producing the products.

Special offer: Delta 8 vape cartridges – only $10/cart!

It’s actually just a set of more intense-than-necessary regulations that make the shipping of such products so legally complicated, that the cost of shipping them goes up exponentially. The US government is using this premise to keep USPS from making vape shipments, and UPS, FedEx, and DHL opted in, as a way to not have to deal with the complicated legal and taxation issues. None of this pushes any kind of illegalization measure for products like delta-8 THC, however, it merely works as a barrier from obtaining certain products. Luckily, with cannabis, there are other ways to gain its benefits without vaping…or smoking.

Delta-8 THC and athletics

One of the things about delta-8, which separates it from delta-9, is the clarity of mind. Regular marijuana is not usually known to help a person focus harder, although there is a large range when looking at indicas and sativas. So, consider that even compared to a sativa, which is less likely to make a person tired and spacey, delta-8 THC is reported to produce more clarity of mind and focus overall, as well as helping some athletes enjoy intense exercise more.

It’s not a subject that has been specifically medically investigated, so there aren’t a bunch of reviews to substantiate anything. However, there are ways to hear personal experiences. I don’t consider Reddit – for example – to be the beacon of truth in life, but it is a good source when looking for answers to questions or basic opinions or experiences. And this does exist for delta-8 THC and working out, or athletics in general. Here you can see people directly answering the question of how it is to work out with delta-8. If you’ll notice, the grand majority point to a good experience, can say how it helped them, and yet didn’t sound to be made more-than-human in the process.

cannabis and athletics

Cannabis and athletics

One important thing to know about delta-8 THC and cannabis in general when it comes to athletics, is that as of 2004, cannabis was added to the list of prohibited substances for sports competitions by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA – established 1999), the group set up to police what substances can and cannot be used in official sporting competitions. The World Anti-Doping Code lists three criteria in order for a drug to be banned from competitive sports.

  1. If it can enhance performance
  2. If it poses a risk to the athlete’s health
  3. If it violates the spirit of sport

I haven’t found much to give meaning to that last measure. To me it sounds like one of those blanket statements that can be molded to fit any cause…in this case, banning cannabis from sporting competitions. If you’re wondering what the ‘spirit of sport’ means, I was too. According to WADA:

“The spirit of sport is the celebration of the human spirit, body and mind, and is reflected in values we find in and through sport, including Ethics, fairplay and honesty; health; excellence in performance; character and education; fun and joy; teamwork; dedication and commitment; respect for rules and laws; respect for self and other Participants; courage; community and solidarity.”

Breaking it down

The only thing I can pull out of this that might apply to cannabis, is the ‘respect for rules and laws’ part, since if its used where illegal, this would constitute breaking a law…I guess. But in that same vein, any athlete with an unpaid parking ticket is just as guilty. Yet somehow, unpaid parking tickets have never been the reason for exemption from major sporting competitions, so perhaps the logic isn’t so great on this one.

When it comes to the 2nd provision, there are some things to consider, and the main one is that when this was put together, vaping wasn’t a thing, and neither was cannabis oil, or patches, or any other method of ingestion. At least, not outside of a laboratory. So the only ways to consume it, were to smoke it, or to use it as an edible, with the former being the much more popular and widely used method.

athletics

In fact, world-wide, it still is. In that sense, regardless of whether it actually enhances performance like a steroid, it does pose a risk to health through actively smoking it. That would go for any substance – tobacco, cannabis, and other herbal remedies, as well as wood, paint, or plastic. Anything that gets lit on fire and inhaled. For this reason, I can understand why it would be on this list, since at the time, it would have been advocating for smoking, which is never a good idea, and certainly not for athletes.

However, with the inclusion of vaping, using oils, availability of patches, and more edible options, the idea of why it might have caused a risk to health, essentially disappears. Let’s remember, that since the inception of vaping until early 2020, the total number of associated deaths was 68, while 480,000 people die a year from smoking. Considering all the medical benefits now being associated with cannabis (which have technically been known about for thousands of years), and that the death rate can be cut so substantially by simply not burning it anymore, it makes it hard to see how #2 on the list has any value at this point.

If we back up to that first reason, let’s remember that smoking itself is a hindrance to performance if something burning is inhaled. But even considering that cannabis can be taken without lighting it on fire, it has turned up in investigation to not be a performance enhancer according to this study from 2018. I suppose it could be argued that simply allowing a person to think more clearly might make delta-8 THC a problem for athletics, but then any supplement would have to be banned, as well as eating a healthy diet.

Conclusion

No one is going around saying everyone should use cannabis before exercising, but there is definitely something to be said for the use of cannabis – and specifically delta-8 THC and athletics. While smoking it might detract from health, the multitude of other ways it can be consumed make the ability to use it while working out, seem generally healthy, or at least, not unhealthy. Every interested individual will have to see how it works specifically for them.

How to Get Around Vape Mail Ban – And Get Your Delta-8 THC Carts

At this point we’re all aware of the recent vape ban legislation that got squeezed into last year’s Omnibus bill for corona relief. And we’re all aware that main carriers like UPS, USPS, FedEx, and DHL will not be able to legally deliver vape products. But maybe not everyone is aware of how to get around these restrictions. Fear not, there are alternate options to get around the vape mail ban.

Is it the end of an era? As of March 28th, USPS, UPS, FedEx, and DHL will no longer deliver vape products like delta-8 THC through the mail. Luckily, many companies are already working on new ways to get you your products, but until the kinks are worked out, best to stock up now. So, check out our awesome Delta-8 THC deals and let us send them out to you before the ban begins.

What is this vape mail ban?

Weirdly, it starts with the coronavirus, or rather, the coronavirus relief package called the ‘The December 2020 COVID Relief & Omnibus Spending Bill’. Though it sounds like this means the legislation would be purely related to the fallout of the coronavirus pandemic, an ‘omnibus’ bill can include provisions that range many different topics. Because of the large field of coverage, these bills are not debated in congress, but voted on once and passed. For this reason, and because such random things can be stuck in, these bills have often been used to hide unpopular legislation from the public, or rush through laws under the cover of night.

As part of this omnibus bill is the Preventing Online Sales of E-Cigarettes to Children Act, aka the Vape Mail Ban, which technically had already passed both sides of congress by July 2020, though in a different form. Not too many businesses seemed flustered by it at the time, but that’s probably because then-president Trump had not been for it, though he later signed the omnibus bill, making it a law.

There are two main provisions of this new law. The first is an instruction to USPS (US postal service) to create regulations that ban the shipment of any and all vape products to any US residential address. The second provision puts ‘vaping products’ into the Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking Act (PACT). This new Preventing Online Sales of E-Cigarettes to Children Act works outside of the FDA’s standard tobacco and vaping regulations, and broadens the definition of vape product to include everything including: e-juices, vapes, CBD vapes, delta-8 THC, vape replacement parts, paraphernalia, and literally any device that can be used to vape anything, and everything it could possibly vape. This bill did not come from the FDA, but from the ATF, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

What does the ban cover?

After the law passed, the three major private shipping companies: FedEx, DHL, and UPS also stated they would comply with this new ban, and stop shipping vape products like e-juice or delta-8 THC vapes through the mail to either residential homes or businesses. DHL had already banned the shipment of such items, and both UPS and FedEx claimed they’d be done with it by April 5th.

USPS published a proposed rule to cover its requirement, called the ‘Treatment of E-Cigarettes in the Mail’ to the Federal Register, and left a 31-day window for public comment, with a final rule expected to take effect by March 27th. As part of the proposed regulation, USPS would add vape products to its already existing set of rules related to mailing tobacco products, however with small changes so that vape purchasers won’t be affected. The law would ban shipments from companies to residences, and make it difficult to ship from company to company.

Weirdly enough, the existing laws already have an exception in place that allows regular residents the ability to send up to 10 packages a month through the mail containing tobacco or smokeless tobacco products to other residents or businesses. The intention is for sending gifts or returning defective products to manufacturers. It’s stipulated that the packages must be under 10 ounces, and senders must follow very specific rules. It is assumed that this exception will also apply to vaping products, although this is not known yet.

LAST CHANCE: Get Delta 8 THC vape carts for only $10/cart

The previously mentioned PACT Act was actually an amendment in 2009 to the already existent 1949 Jenkins Act. The main reason for passage of PACT was to diminish online sales of untaxed tobacco products. The law already prohibits sending cigarettes and smokeless tobacco products through US mail services, apart from online sellers who are fully registered with the ATF and local taxing agencies.

As part of PACT, online sellers are mandated to report earnings to state and federal authorities and pay taxes, and private delivery services are required to follow standards for tobacco delivery. The PACT Act’s main goal was to close tax loopholes, and enforce compliance of tax payments. This time around, with the inclusion of vaping products, the stated intention is to prevent minors from purchasing products online, though it sounds like more of the same as PACT.

Wait, it gets even worse

Not only does the vape ban make it nearly impossible for vape products to get shipped to residential addresses, it makes it just as difficult for brick-and-mortar retailers. The private shipping companies FedEx, UPS, and DHL will also not deliver packages to companies, and there is no USPS exception for companies as of yet, although the final rule could involve one. Even if it does, the other restrictions and requirements mean a likely more expensive and time-consuming shipping process.

But there is still time… Click HERE to get your vape carts for $10/cart

To give an idea of the restrictions put on companies in order to make shipments, they need to give the address and name of every business they will send to, and update it for any new additions before anything can be delivered. All customer licenses must be given, specific post offices must be named for shipping and only those branches used, all packages must be carried into the post office physically, and processed in person. There are tons of other little requirements that must be attended to. Think about what this means for a large supplier who makes many shipments. Manufacturers and suppliers are getting screwed by this too.

Is this really a ban?

No, not even close. In fact, it sounds to be an extension of PACT in terms of closing tax loopholes and collecting untapped tax revenue. An actual ban wouldn’t passive-aggressively block the consumer from the product, it would make the product, production of it, and its sale and use, illegal. None of this happened. To get more into it, this ban doesn’t even ban shipment of any of the products mentioned, so long as the company checks the following boxes:

  • Verify the age of customers
  • Use only private shipping services that collect a signature from an adult only, at the point of delivery
  • Register with the US Attorney General, and the ATF
  • Register with all state and local tax administration offices, in all places business is conducted
  • Collect and pay taxes, with required tax stamps attached to products sold
  • Send a list of transactions monthly to state tax administrators with the names and addresses of consumers, what they bought and in what quantity, as well as the name, address, and telephone number of whoever delivers the package

If it hasn’t sunk in yet, the only vape products that will be available through the mail, will require you to have all your information – both private about yourself, and about what you’re purchasing – sent to the government. So no, it’s not a ban. A ban wouldn’t allow for legal sales. And just so you know what the company you want to buy from is dealing with, PACT comes with strict standards and penalties for those who break the law. This can include large fines as well as federal prison time.

Plus, each state will have its own requirements for companies that do business within it, meaning that business owners must follow the differing protocols for every state they deal with. This can even mean forcing business owners to collect sales or excise taxes in some places, which would raise the price of products. These tax collection requirements may be a large reason for many small enterprises to fail once the ban begins. It’s analogous to a large company bleeding out a smaller company in court by burying them in motions until they don’t have the time/money/people to get the job done.

Get around the vape mail ban to get your delta-8 THC vapes and other smoking items

New laws tend to create new trends, and that’s what’s happening now as companies look for ways to get around the vape mail ban. Whether you’re trying to get nicotine cartridges, delta-8 THC, or a new vape, there are ways to do it through the mail. For one thing, large tax compliance companies are already creating software to aid online vape product enterprises. So far, only one exists, but the ban hasn’t even gone into effect yet.

get around vape mail ban

IGEN, a Wisconsin-based tax compliance firm provides a software for companies that exist in fields with heavy regulation like tobacco, firearms, oil, etc. IGEN provides a service that integrates tons of different tax and legal information for all locations, but might not be cost-effective for smaller companies. I expect within a year, plenty more options will be available with lots of different price points. This service doesn’t so much get a company around the ban, but helps them integrate with it.

Another possible option for how to get around the vape mail ban is a new partnership between a private company and a national and residential shipping agency known simply as X. The company is in the process of building a vape product delivery network that can service residential customers. What areas will be covered, and what companies are involved are still unknown, but chances are, if X thought to do it, so will other companies.

This will also add an extra fee, on top of the tax collection that will invariably raise prices. Once again, just like IGEN, this doesn’t get around the ban, so much as provide a way for companies to more easily work with it’s regulations. While companies of this nature might start small in scale, the end goal is to reach as many customers in general, with expansion intended over time. Building a network like this is not easy. Larger locations with more people and more orders will be the first to be served, just like bigger companies with more purchases will be the first onboard.

Then there’s the freight industry, which is a conglomeration of national, regional, and local carriers. Vaping companies can build networks within this industry depending on willingness by particular companies to be involved, and institute logistical systems to keep track of shipping and tax information. It takes time, of course, but once established, this could provide a strong backing for the industry that can’t be broken as easily. It’s even possible for a national freight system to be established as a result of this. The company VapeFreight is described by owner Michael Wittenberg as being a “complete B2B shipping solution for the vape industry.” 5,000 carriers are already involved in the service, and Wittenberg said that while they currently ship LTL and freight, that they’ll be adding parcel very soon.

Another possible option to get around the vape mail ban are all those other smaller shipping companies that have been popping up in the last few years. Take uShip for example, which seems to really want to take this business. uShip doesn’t seem to have an issue with the requirements, and is using the new law to attract business to themselves, offering parcel and LTL delivery services. Here, the company is already setting itself up to be a new delivery method for tobacco and vape products, and represents one of the best ways to get around the vape mail ban.

Last but not least is ShipStation, another smaller shipping company like uShip which is looking to put together something to provide merchants with different options. They are asking merchants to contact them here to hear individual issues, so they can provide individualized solutions. It seems like they are working on a bigger answer to the problem, but are currently collecting information and trying to help businesses one-by-one.

Conclusion

If you want to get around the vape mail ban, it won’t be easy. And simply getting around it doesn’t mean not having to pay exorbitant fees, and raise product prices. When I look at the landscape, though, it’s actually very promising. Before the ban has even gone into effect, companies have started to look for workarounds, and find other ways. In fact, smaller shipping services might be the biggest winners, as well as a tech industry that’s always ready to find a new solution. Plus, once supply issues are figured out (and they likely will be soon), there is always the dispensary option for those who have one available.

And then of course, there’s the going DIY method. When cannabis became illegal, what did people do? They grew it themselves. Perhaps this is the start of a population of people who will learn how to process their own marijuana, create their own cannabis oil, and delta-8 THC, and perhaps not rely as much on government-run delivery services and regulation programs to get them their products. Maybe in the end, the vape mail ban will result in something good.

Why the Vape Ban Is Happening, and How It Will Impact Delta-8 THC

What was on page 5,136 of last year’s Covid Relief Bill? You know, the legislation meant to govern relief efforts for the global and domestic damage caused by the recent response to the Coronavirus pandemic? A shipping ban for any kind of vape product, both cannabis and non-cannabis. Weird place to put it, huh, kind of like it was being hidden. So, why is this vape ban happening? And how will such a law effect products like delta-8 THC?

Ugh, the US government is at it again! Starting March 28th, vape products will no longer be able to be sent through regular mail services. While this ban doesn’t make a lot of sense, and we sure hope it doesn’t hold, it does mean that right now is your last chance to order products online. Check out our awesome Delta-8 THC deals and take advantage of mail systems while we can still use them.

Under the cover of night legislation

Before getting into why the vape ban is happening, let’s take a look at the circumstances of how it happened. When we think of legislative measures, there is often a misconception that any legislative measure is directly related to the subject matter at hand, with nothing superfluous, or unrelated attached to it. So, for, say, a legislative relief measure to deal with the economic fallout from a pandemic, the expectation would be that it would contain solely legislative measures related to fixing the economic fallout related to the pandemic.

The Omnibus Appropriations and Coronavirus Relief Package bill was passed by congress late last year, and as the word ‘omnibus’ implies, it is a bill that encompasses legislative measures for several different topics, some completely unrelated to the pandemic. It’s a tricky move because the name of the bill implies something very specific, with everything not on topic creating an amalgamation of laws that have nothing to do with each other. These add-ons that are unrelated to an original bill, are often called ‘riders.’ It’s an under cover of night measure of passing legislation. It makes it confusing for the public to know it’s happening at all, and is done for that reason.

Other methods of under cover of night law passing include passing legislation on holidays, passing legislation in the very early morning or middle of the night, withholding draft bills from public view, and passing legislation when more controversial news stories are dominating the press in order to keep attention off a legislative measure. Since omnibus bills by nature can have many unrelated component parts, they are often used to hide unpopular legislation, or to pass measures that might otherwise require ongoing debate.

The thing that this current situation implies more than anything else, is secrecy. The government didn’t create a bill to cover this subject by itself, or do much to let the public know about it. It stuck the legislation in a place where no one would see it until it passed. So the first thing we can consider in our question of why this vape ban is happening, is that it wasn’t desirable for the government to have the public know this was coming.

A little history on smoking and vaping

The history of vaping actually goes back to 1930 when Joseph Robinson was granted the first patent for an electronic cigarette, though it’s unclear if a prototype was ever made. For the most part, the fad of vaping became a big thing in the mid-2000’s. The 1990’s were actually a strong time for the filing of patents related to vaping equipment, but it wasn’t until 2003 that Chinese pharmacist Hon Lik created the first commercially viable vaping product.

His company Golden Dragon Holdings manufactured the product, changing the name to ‘Ruyan’. The market really exploded in 2006 when electronic cigarettes made their way to both Europe and the US.

When it comes to the idea of the dangers of smoking, and how long information has been out there, consider that as early as 1602, an author made a connection between chimney sweepers and lung cancer, and that tobacco might have a similar effect. In 1795, Sammuel Thomas von Soemmering of Germany reported on a growing awareness of a possible connection between pipe smokers and lip cancer. Three years later, in 1798, US physician Benjamin Rush began writing about the harmfulness of tobacco smoking.

In the 1920’s official medical reports started being added to the growing pot of information. Since cigarette companies were big advertisers in press publications, many publications refused to publish information on this growing understanding, so as not to offend companies that were giving them lots of business. Between the 1950’s and 1960’s, major studies were published, essentially ending actual debate over cigarettes not being dangerous. Even so, as late as the year 1960, only 1/3 of doctors in the US believed that cigarettes were causing this damage. The government did literally nothing for decades.

And while lung cancer seems pretty standard in this day and age, prior to the boom in cigarettes in the last couple centuries, lung cancer was such a rare occurrence that doctors took special notice. According to this study: The history of the discovery of the cigarette-lung cancer link: evidentiary traditions, corporate denial, global toll, from 2013, approximately one lung cancer death is caused per 3-4 million smoked cigarettes, with 1.5-2 million deaths occurring per year.

Almost regardless of whatever is in vape cartridges, it will not be as bad as smoking, and we know that already just by looking at injury numbers. Some will definitely argue that why the vape ban is happening is related to health issues, but I think it’s been made perfectly clear through history and medical research, that lighting the cigarettes on fire is really the biggest culprit.

The current vape ban

What is this ban which was passed quietly, almost unbeknownst to most Americans? It’s a ban on the shipping of vape products, not on the actual use, production, or sale of them. And it doesn’t actually specify anything about cannabis, because cannabis vape products fall under the general term of ‘tobacco products’, according to the Federal Law for Control of Tobacco Products from 2008.

The ban is for tobacco vaping products being shipped through UPS, FEDEX, or USPS. This does not mean companies cannot sell products, or ship them through the mail, but it does mean that companies selling tobacco or cannabis vape products after March 28th, will have to use a different delivery system.

Since cannabis products fall under tobacco products, this means anything cannabis-related, like CBD, would also be a part of this. In a way, it’s a ban that isn’t technically a ban, as there is no ban on any company or individual. This means the US government is not trying to legally stop people from using these products, or companies from making them, but it does seem to be trying to determine how the public can get products, and what products will be available to them.

Dangers and regulation

CBD has become pretty available worldwide, with a growing acceptance of it, even if the rest of the cannabis plant is taking longer. And regardless of the few stories that do come up about issues related to vaping deaths, the numbers are nearly irrelevant. According to the CDC, since the inception of vaping, there have been all of 2,807 hospitalizations and 68 deaths by this time last year. This number (which is for the entire time vaping has been active) just doesn’t compare to the harm of actually smoking.

It’s as dumb as saying cannabis might be as dangerous as alcohol, even though one produces a negligible number of deaths, and one is a leading cause of death. Even with an unregulated system, and tons of horrible possible additives, the danger is still so unrealistically small compared to lighting up, that the whole thing is not only silly, but dangerous, as it makes a safer option harder to get to, and the dangerous option way more available.

That’s the thing about this topic, the vape scene is nearly entirely unregulated, and a lack of regulation means one general fact: the government loses out on tax money, and larger corporate enterprises lose out on revenue to smaller independent companies. The government might want to say that it cares about your health, but it also failed to fully regulate the tobacco industry until 2009, it’s not telling you not to use the products, all reports point to issues with additives and not the compounds themselves, and the government is fully in favor of letting companies sell these products.

vape ban on hemp products

But it does stymie businesses. CBD vape retailers will have just as much of a hard time as e-juice companies in getting their products to people, and many of these products are already approved. And then there are gray-area issues like delta-8 THC. The US government has had a difficult time dealing with delta-8 as it has created a legal loophole related to industrial hemp. The 2018 Farm Bill legalized the cultivation, production, and sale of hemp-based products, but THC and all derivatives fall under schedule I of every drug treaty.

Why the vape ban targets delta-8 THC

So, we have a compound and everything related to it being illegal on one hand, and the ability to source that same compound in a legal way on the other hand. The government put out the Interim Final Rule in 2020 on hemp and hemp derivatives to try to clear up the mess. The rule reinforces that all ‘synthetically derived’ THC is still illegal, but even that hasn’t been able to stop the delta-8 THC industry, and the semi-legal sale of THC. This is because, whether delta-8 THC is considered synthetic, is also up for debate.

Delta-8 THC can’t be grown on its own, or processed individually. Anyone who wants it has to actually buy it, and often times it’s significantly cheaper to buy online. This ban means that if someone wants a product that just can’t be found in their area, that they’re simply out of luck, and this could be bad news for delta-8 THC since so many sales are online. It, does, however, act as a partial answer to why the vape ban is taking place, though. Sure, it could be that the government suddenly cares what you’re smoking, even though it doesn’t seem to care what’s in your food, and didn’t care a bit about your lungs for decades even with medical report after medical report.

Or, it could be that the government doesn’t want to lose more tax revenue, and that this makes it harder for people to buy gray-area items that governments don’t profit from. It says a lot that the government isn’t saying that anything is illegal, but instead is trying rather hard to make the process difficult for buyers.

Conclusion

Who knows whether this ban will really stick, or if it’ll be knocked over in court next month? Perhaps it would be more useful to citizens if the government could work on regulation standards instead of passive-aggressively trying to keep citizens from products that it can’t control the sale of. Maybe if it were fentanyl it would matter more, there would be more reason to get behind the ban. But it’s not fentanyl. And as dicey as the vaping industry is, it just doesn’t rack up a noticeable death toll to necessitate any extra measures, particularly anything more than alcohol, tobacco, or opiates receive. Why is the vape ban happening? Because the US government can’t control the industry.

All About Delta 8 THC Distillate

Delta 8 THC is a shelf-stable, mildly psychoactive, minor cannabinoid that has been quickly gaining popularity over the last couple years. Also climbing into the mainstream are products made with cannabis distillates, which allow for incredibly potent products with accurate dosing. When combined – Delta 8 THC Distillate – we have a powerhouse product that’s full of therapeutic benefits and steadily flying off the shelves.

What is Delta 8 THC?

Before we talk about the medical benefits of this cannabinoid, let’s talk about what exactly Delta 8 THC is, and how it’s different from the more well-known, Delta 9 THC. Delta 8 THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is a naturally occurring, minor cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. Although it’s structurally similar to Delta 9 THC, there are some major differences as well.

For example, Delta 9 THC is the cannabis plant’s most abundant psychoactive compound, whereas Delta 8 is only found in trace amounts. As a matter of fact, Delta 8 is not even produced by the enzymes in cannabis, rather, it is created when Delta 9 THC oxidizes and slowly degrades into Delta 8. Further degradation of Delta 9 would create the cannabinoid CBN (cannabinol).  

When it comes to the chemical difference between Delta 8 and Delta 9, it all comes down to one molecule. In chemistry, “Delta” refers to the double bond in a compound’s molecular structure. Delta compounds have more electrons and will interact with the body in a different way than single bond cannabinoids. The difference between the Delta THC analogues comes down to where the double bond is located on their chain of carbon atoms. Delta 9 has this bond on the 9th carbon chain, and Delta 8 THC has the double bond on the 8th carbon chain. It seems like a small difference, but it can be significant.

Similar to its more dominant counterpart, Delta 8 THC is a partial agonist for both the CB1 and CB2 receptors, although it seems to have a stronger affinity for CB1. This means there are effects to be felt in numerous different parts of the body, despite having weaker psychotropic potency. The National Center for Biological Information (NCBI) describes delta-8 THC as follows: “An analogue of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) with antiemetic, anxiolytic, appetite-stimulating, analgesic, and neuroprotective properties.”

What Medical Conditions Could Be Treated With Delta 8 THC

  • Insomnia

Inadequate sleep can have a profound impact on one’s health. In the short-term, it can affect mood and judgement, the ability to learn and retain information, and it can increase the possibility of an immediate accident or injury. Over a longer period of time, lack of sleep can lead to diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, and even early death.

Extensive research tells us that activation of the CB1 receptor leads to better, longer, and more restful sleep, and keeping in mind that Delta 8 THC directly stimulates the CB1 receptor, one can easily come to the conclusion that Delta 8 is good for sleep. REM sleep is an important part of our circadian cycles because it stimulates parts of the brain that are essential for learning new things and forming memories.

Anecdotal evidence leads to the same conclusion with many users claiming that Delta 8 THC helps them fall asleep more easily and stay asleep longer. They also report feeling more refreshed and well-rested when waking up.

It’s believed that Delta 8 THC’s analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties play a major role in its ability to function as a sleep aid. There is a strong connection between pain and sleep. Obviously, someone who is experiencing a lot of pain will have trouble getting comfortable and thus, have difficulty falling asleep. But the relationship goes even deeper – as lack of sleep increases the perception of pain. Breaking the pain/lack of sleep cycle is incredibly difficult, and having a good night’s sleep with both REM and deep sleep stages is key to making improvements.

  • Cancer

While I’m not saying that smoking some delta 8 flowers or popping a few gummies will cure cancer, studies have proven that pharmaceutical products with highly concentrated doses of certain cannabinoids will do the trick.

This was first observed in 1974, in none other than Israel, where a study meant to focus on the immune system inadvertently found that Delta 8 THC alone significantly slowed tumor growth in mice. When combined with CBN (cannabinol), tumors actually began to shrink in as little as 3 weeks.

“Mice treated for 20 consecutive days with delta8-THC and CBN had reduced primary tumor size. CBD showed no inhibitory effect on tumor growth at 14, 21, or 28 days. Delta9-THC, delta8-THC, and CBN increased the mean survival time.” Antineoplastic activity of cannabinoids – PubMed (nih.gov)

Another study in 1995 on children with leukemia, showed a high rate of efficacy for treating the cancer, while also controlling side effects like nausea and vomiting caused by more conventional forms of treatment. The study was conducted at Shaare Zedek Hospital, Bikur Holim Hospital and the Hebrew University located in Jerusalem. The creators of the study, led by Raphael Mechulam, noted that “at the same this research was occurring, there had been 480 successful treatments of cancer with delta-8 THC.”

  • Anxiety

If you’re prone to anxiety, the mild and uplifting high you get from Delta 8 THC might be just what you need. Delta 8 THC offers all the medicinal effects of THC, and even some minor psychoactive effects, without the paranoia that often comes with Delta 9. The carefree high that comes with weed is often dampened by the anxious, nervous high some people experience.

Studies show that the endocannabinoid system, mainly the CB1 receptor, is centrally involved in regulating anxiety and depression. When the CB1 receptor is blocked, increased anxiety often occurs. Many people successfully utilize CBD (cannabidiol) to relieve their anxiety, but for many others it’s just not strong enough.

According to the National Cancer Institute, “this phytocannabinoid displays anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) qualities similar to delta-9 THC.” There is little in the way clinical research investing delta-8 THC’s potential to reduce anxiety, however, anecdotal evidence suggests that delta 8 products provide a nice, calm, focused, and stress-free high.

What is Delta 8 THC Distillate?

The scientific definition of distillation is that it is the act of purifying a substance usually through a collection of heating and cooling methods. The end result of a distillation process is known as a distillate.

Delta 8 THC distillate is a highly concentrated extract derived from hemp and cannabis plants, although the latter is not very common. Delta 8 THC distillate typically has upwards of D8 and it’s considered one of the purest and cleanest extracts available on the market.

Distillate retains a minimal amount of other compounds like plant waxes, vitamins, antioxidants, terpenes, and some minor cannabinoids. Whether it contains trace or illegal levels of Delta 9 THC depends on whether it was extracted from cannabis or hemp, although most of the time, hemp is preferred. This makes it great for anyone who needs accurate dosing but also needs the medicinal benefits the come from the entourage effect.

Another reason to choose distillates is that, because of their purity, patients often don’t need as much product to feel the effects. This can be economically advantageous for anyone who needs to use CBG daily but has been roadblocked by the fluctuating but generally high costs of purchasing these products.

How Distillation Works

Delta 8 distillation is a complex refinement procedure that separates the cannabinoid from raw plant material. The process is broken down into a few different steps.

  • Initial Extraction: The first step in the process of creating CBG distillate is to extract the cannabidiol from the hemp plant matter. There are a few different ways to do this including CO2 supercritical extraction, solvent extraction, or the rinsing and sifting method (physical) method.
  • Winterization – This step removes the unwanted impurities that are inadvertently extracted from the hemp plants during step one. During winterization, the extracted solution is placed into an extremely cold (winterized) environment for 24 to 48 hours. At this point, any impurities congeal and separate from the rest of the solution. The impurities are thrown out and the remaining product is filtered.
  • Decarboxylation – Before being exposed to heat or oxygen, cannabinoids exist in an acidic state (CBDA, THCA, etc.). To convert the plant cannabinoids into their active state, the extracted solution is heated thoroughly.
  • Distillation – The final process of distillation, the solution is vaporized and collected in a distillation cooling system. Each compound in the plant can be separated because of the variations in volatility, or boiling point, so the result is a relatively clean product.

The final product is a golden, thick solid product with a consistency that’s similar to honey.

Cannabinoid Distillate: The Future of Medical Cannabis

Distillation allows users to decide how much they want an oil to stray from the original plant extract. So, if you’re making edibles for example, you would want an oil with little to no flavor, so that your edible tastes like food and not cannabis. If you’re creating a vape oil that is supposed to mimic the smell and taste of cannabis, you can reintroduce some of the terpenes that have been removed using a method known as mass spectrometry. Basically, products using distillate are highly customizable.

Not only that, but in the case of medicinal products, reliable, consistent results are extremely important. “If you’re a doctor recommending a treatment, you’re not inclined to suggest something that has a lot of non-medicinal dissolved plant matter in it,” says Summit Research founder Elliot Kremmerman. “Medications have proven, tested chemical profiles, and distillation is letting us create them for cannabis products.”

He continued: “The purity, potency, and long shelf life of distilled cannabis oils mean they have some of the best margins to be found on the modern cannabis marketplace. In the coming years, there are a lot of consumers who aren’t going to be looking for the best flower, but for the best profile that you can put together mathematically.”

Final Thoughts

There are many more medical ailments that Delta 8 THC can be used for, and distillate can allow manufacturers to make products with very high and accurate doses of any cannabinoid that can be chemically extracted from the plant.
