Delta 8 THC Inhalants and You
If you desire to get your Delta 8 THC effects using the quickest delivery of results possible, then a Delta 8 THC inhalant is for you. Inhalants bypass the normal digestion processes required with edibles and tinctures, and they deliver the Delta 8 THC through the bronchial tubes in your lungs, straight into your bloodstream. It is definitely an effective delivery system. However, it only takes a minute browsing through our inventory of Delta 8 THC products to realize there are many types of inhalants that we, at The Hemp Doctor, offer. To help you make a more informed decision, here is a comparison of the different types of Delta 8 THC inhalants we carry and points to consider about each.
Prerolls are a hand-rolled joint we create for you from your choice of the different strains of hemp flower we carry. Each of these strains has a different terpene profile and various characteristics that cause that strain to deliver a different experience. For example, Hawaiian Haze is a sativa strain that will likely make you social and talkative. However, if you try our Bubba Kush, an indica strain, you will feel completely at ease and dreamy.
Any strain will deliver the effects you are looking for from the Delta 8 THC. It is just the additional experience you get from the different hemp strains that make each unique. If you like the taste and aroma of a good smoke, prerolls are the most convenient way to go.
Moon Rocks and Ice Rocks
Both of these products are CBD hemp flower that has been infused with Delta 8 THC. In addition, the Moon Rocks are coated with CBD/CBG kief, while the Ice Rocks are coated with a 99% CBD distillate.
You can smoke either of these rocks by rolling them alone into a joint, adding them to your favorite hemp flower in your hand-rolled joint, or packing them in a bong. They offer a more intense experience than with a preroll. However, you do not have a choice of strains like you do with prerolls or vapes. Therefore, your experience will not vary. However, you determine how much or how little you use to create your joint, so you decide how intense you wish your results to be.
You have a couple of choices when it comes to vaping your Delta 8 THC. Cartridges are small glass tubes that are screwed onto a vaping battery. You have several choices of strain with the cartridge to have a different experience with each strain. Vape cartridges are convenient and only require a 510 threaded vape battery.
If you are looking for a vape solution that is even more convenient, our new, sleek disposable vape pen is right for you. This is an all-in-one unit combining a full 1 milliliter of your favorite vape oil with a rechargeable battery. You also have a choice of strains with this one. In addition, this is a disposable unit, so once the vape oil is finished, you simply throw away the entire vape pen and start with a fresh one.
Concentrates are exactly what the name implies – they are a concentrated form of Delta 8 THC. Concentrates are created by distilling the hemp oil extract down to a solid form. Different techniques are employed toward the end of the process to make the final distillate’s physical appearance and texture unique. For example, we offer three different concentrates:
- Shatter – This is a clear, hard distillate that is easily breakable and has the consistency of peanut brittle.
- Crumble – This is an opaque-looking distillate that has the look and consistency of crumbled feta cheese.
- Diamonds – This is a crystallized form of distillate from a high terpene sauce.
Concentrates are dabbed using a dab rig. This creates the most intense Delta 8 THC experience above any other type of inhalant. However, this inhalant method requires a specialized setup for you to enjoy the experience. This is what you would need to dab one of our concentrates.
- A Rig – This looks like a bong with a mouthpiece at the top and an open “throat” toward the bottom.
- A Nail – This is generally made of glass and consists of a glass tube with a “bucket” at one end and a “nail” at the other end that fits into the throat of the rig. The standard term for the nail is a “quartz banger.”
- A Carb Cap – This is a small lid that fits onto the bucket of the nail. It’s not essential, but it does help to regulate airflow.
- A Dabber – This is a small metal rod that’s only a couple of inches long with either a small spoon or spade at one end.
- A Torch – This is a hand-held torch, usually butane, and is normally used to light cigars or caramelize a crème Brulee.
Once you assemble your dab rig by inserting the nail into the rig, the way dabbing works is that you first use your torch to heat the bucket of your nail for about 45 seconds. Once the bucket is hot, you dab a small amount of concentrate from its container using your dabber, then transfer it to the inside of the bucket and begin to inhale. The dab will melt against the side of the bucket and cause a vapor. Rotate your dabber until the dab is completely melted, then place the carb cap on the bucket and continue to inhale.
Note that while this will deliver the most intense Delta 8 THC experience, you have to be very careful when dabbing as the nail becomes very hot and it is easy to get burned.
