Cannabidiol, or Delta 8 THC, is a cannabis-derived product that has been gaining popularity in recent years for its purported health benefits. Delta 8 THC is said to help with everything from chronic pain to anxiety and depression, but what do you need to know before you start smoking it? CBD stands for cannabidiol, which is a chemical compound that comes from the cannabis plant. Delta 8 THC contains high levels of cannabidiol and low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the psychotropic component in cannabis. Smoking Delta 8 THC will not produce any form of a “high” because it does not contain THC in large enough amounts to have an effect on your mind or body’s psychoactive responses.
What Is A Vaporizer?
A vaporizer is essentially an electronic device that heats up dry herbs, waxes, oils, etc., into a gas without producing smoke. When you use dry herb you can get high by reaching certain temperatures depending on the strain. Certain strains are bred to have more THC and other compounds that produce the high. Vaporizers work by heating your cannabis or concentrate to a certain temperature so it starts turning from a solid or liquid into a gas.
How Can You Use A Vaporizer?
There are several types of vaporizers, which heat up dry herb using either electricity or butane. Electric vapes, like the kind you plug into an outlet, give you a consistent heat source to draw from and offer precise control over how much heat is reaching your cannabis, but they require a nearby power supply and don’t allow for on-the-go use. Portable vaporizers with batteries, like e-cigs for vape juice, are great because they’re self-contained units; you can activate them and start inhaling within seconds.
What Are Some Of The Benefits?
CBD has been shown to help reduce anxiety, depression, nausea, seizures and a host of other ailments that have been difficult to treat with medical cannabis or prescription drugs alone. In fact, Delta 8 THC is said to have incredible benefits as a natural alternative for those who are looking to avoid psychoactive effects from THC altogether. On the flip side, there is no scientific evidence yet proving it can effectively and safely help everyone who uses it; instead, like most treatments out there, results vary depending on the person and their symptoms.
