The cannabis industry is highly competitive. In order to succeed, many businesses need to stand out from the pack. One way to do this is by adding a unique feature that differentiates your business from others in the same industry. An emerging trend among some marijuana dispensaries is an emphasis on products with extremely high THC percentages, such as “delta-9-THC carts” or “delta 8 carts”. These strains of cannabis have extremely high concentrations of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and produce a very potent high when smoked or vaped. But are delta-8 THC carts safe? Do they have any special benefits? Let’s find out!
What is a Delta-8 THC Cart?
Delta-8 THC carts are marijuana plants that have been genetically altered to produce a higher amount of THC. The delta-8 THC carts are not fully genetically engineered organisms. Instead, delta-8 THC carts are created by breeding two normal plants together through a selective breeding process. Selective breeding can be used to increase or decrease the amount of certain cannabinoids in cannabis plants. This process can also be used to alter the chemical make-up of the plant. Cannabis plants naturally produce a number of chemical compounds called cannabinoids. The two most common cannabinoids found in cannabis are THC and CBD. THC is the cannabinoid that produces the euphoric high commonly associated with marijuana. CBD, on the other hand, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that has become popular for treating a number of health conditions. Delta-8 THC carts have significantly higher levels of THC than other types of cannabis plants. Most delta-8 THC carts have THC levels above 30 percent.
How Are Delta-8 Carts Made?
Delta-8 THC carts are created through selective breeding. To create a delta-8 THC cart, breeders cross two normal cannabis plants. They do this by mating two cannabis plants together, and then harvesting the seeds that result from their union. They plant these seeds, grow the plants that sprout from them, and then give the plants a chemical “treatment” to accelerate the rate at which they grow. Delta-8 THC carts grow differently than normal cannabis plants. While normal cannabis plants contain a 1:1 ratio of CBD to THC, delta-8 carts contain a much lower amount of CBD. By creating delta-8 carts, breeders can dramatically increase the THC content of their plants.
Delta-8 THC Effects and Benefits
The high amount of THC in delta-8 carts means that smoking or vaping them will produce a potent high. Some people may find the high from delta-8 carts to be too intense and overwhelming. If this is the case, you may want to stick to cannabis strains with a lower THC content. The high from delta-8 carts will be less potent than the high from a strain with a lower THC concentration, lasting between 1-2 hours. After that, you will likely experience negative effects such as anxiety, paranoia, and dizziness.
Delta-8 THC carts are cannabis products made through selective breeding. They have a high THC content, which produces a potent high. For many consumers, the high is too intense.
