4 Ways To Get Your Delta-8 THC

Posted on: 14 April 2021

One of the newest trends in the cannabis world is Delta-8 THC. This is a compound that is quite similar to the Delta-9 THC that's so widely known and used. Delta-8 THC is still psychoactive, but more mildly so. It is known to create a gentle high, but not such strong psychoactive effects as one tends to feel with ordinary, Delta-9 THC.

If you want to medicate without the side effect of feeling couch-locked or unmotivated during the day, then it's a good idea to use Delta-8 THC. However, you can't get much of it by smoking flower. Delta-8 THC is only found in low concentrations in natural cannabis. So, if you want to benefit from its effects without also taking in much larger amounts of Delta-9 THC, you'll want to use one of the following products that dispensaries make from extracted and concentrated Delta-8 THC.

Vaporizer Pens

Some cannabis companies are distilling Delta-8 THC from cannabis and suspending it in a liquid solution that is safe to vaporize. You can find disposable vape pens that you throw away after they're empty, and also cartridges that you can load into a reusable vape pen. Vaporizing is much easier on the lungs than smoking, and it kicks in quickly. 

Wax and Concentrates

If you do prefer to smoke your cannabis products, then you may instead want to purchase some wax or concentrates. You smoke these a tiny bit at a time in a device called a dab rig, which you should be able to buy at a local dispensary. Waxes and concentrates are usually thick and sticky at room temperature, but they become liquid, and then smoke quickly when heated. They take action quickly, but they're not as discrete as vaporizing.


Like Delta-9 THC, Delta-8 THC can be taken orally. It takes much longer to kick in this way — anywhere from 1 to 2 hours — but it also lasts quite a bit longer. You can find gummies, THC-infused chocolate, and even baked goods at many dispensaries that carry Delta-8 products.


If you want to take Delta-8 orally, but you don't want to wait so long for it to kick in, then you should look for a tincture. This is a solution of Delta-8 THC dissolved in alcohol. You place a drop under your tongue, and it will absorb into your bloodstream via the blood vessels there.

Delta-8 THC can be a good option for anyone who wants to use cannabis in the daytime without getting tired. Look for the products above, and give it a try.
