An Exclusive Look at CBDfx’s New CBD Vape Pens!

With the CBD industry now becoming a billion-dollar market, the selection of high-quality CBD vape pens can feel, well, a little endless. And with so many new brands entering the space, this seemingly endless selection of premier CBD vapes is continually growing. So, if your search for the best CBD vape feels a little overwhelming, that’s kind of par for the course. 

Luckily, one of the best CBD companies has outdone themselves again, giving their classic line of CBD vape pens a complete refresh and making your search for CBD vapes all but complete. 

CBDfx, a titan in the health and wellness space, has updated their line of CBD vape pens, improving their vape’s signature design and adding two new delicious flavors to the mix. But how do these CBD vape pens differ from CBDfx’s original line of disposable vapes? And how do they compare to other best-selling CBD vapes? 

We’ll answer all these questions and more as we take an exclusive peek into CBDfx’s revamped line of CBD vape pens!

Who Is CBDfx?

Based in sunny Southern California, CBDfx has been a major player in the hemp wellness space since 2014. Their CBD products are made with high-quality ingredients and organic hemp extract. Their diverse line of products includes full spectrum CBD, broad spectrum CBD, and CBD isolate and come in a wide range of options like CBD gummies, CBD bath bombs, CBD topicals, and much more. 

High-Quality Ingredients

In addition to making their products with organic hemp, CBDfx also uses various all-natural, vegan ingredients to create delicious flavors and complementary wellness effects. While other brands rely on artificial sweeteners and additives, CBDfx keeps things simple, opting for straightforward recipes to produce worthwhile wellness-based products. 

Third-Party Lab Tests

And they prove their all-natural formulas by publishing third-party lab tests (Certificates of Analysis). These lab tests show the product’s chemical makeup, giving users a glimpse into the company’s cultivation, extraction, and manufacturing processes. If corners were cut and shoddy practices used, they’ll show up on these tests. 

By making these tests public, CBDfx gives their users a chance to verify their product’s potency and purity—a mark of a reliable, trustworthy brand. You can find a product’s Certificates of Analysis on its products page under “Lab Report.”

What’s New to Their CBD Vape Pens

If you didn’t try CBDfx’s classic CBD vapes, you might not see how significant their changes are. Their original CBD vapes were long, skinny, and white with a USB-C charging port on the bottom. These pens didn’t have a button but were simply draw-activated. So, you just inhaled off the mouthpiece to activate the vape battery. They came pre-charged and pre-filled, so you didn’t have to tinker with charging cables or pods. Each pen held two grams (around 800 puffs) of high-quality CBD vape juice and came in eight exciting flavors—four with full spectrum CBD and 5mg of delta 9 THC, and four with broad spectrum CBD.

And these CBD vape pens were popular—to put it mildly. 

Now, CBDfx has taken what made their CBD vapes best-sellers and added a few key improvements, all to give users a better vaping experience. 

Even More CBD Vape Juice

While CBDfx’s old CBD vape pens contained 500mg of broad spectrum CBD or full spectrum CBD, their new CBD vapes have triple that amount: 1500mg of high-quality, fruit-flavored CBD vape juice. This staggering amount of CBD vape juice offers users approximately 2500 puffs per pen—a far cry from their old pens’ 800 puffs. 

Now, there is still a slight difference between the CBD vape juice in their CBD vape pens and their CBD + THC vape pens. Their CBD vape pens contain 1500mg of broad spectrum CBD each, while their CBD + THC vape pens have 1500mg of full spectrum CBD and 10mg of THC each—we’ll discuss the differences between full spectrum CBD and broad spectrum CBD below. 

Smaller Designs

CBDfx’s old CBD vapes were long, skinny, and white, and if you had a couple lying around, you couldn’t quite see which flavor each one was. You’d have to roll the dice, pick one, and take a discerning puff. Now, CBDfx has labeled all their pens with their flavor names and designed them with a color to match that flavor’s profile. For instance, the Blue Raspberry CBD Vape Pen dons a berry blue color, while their Strawberry Lemonade CBD Vape Pen sports a summertime pink.

Aside from their fun colors, CBDfx’s new CBD vape pens also have a much different look. They’re no longer skinny and tall; instead, they’re slightly ovular and fit more discreetly and ergonomically in your palm. This new design rests more comfortably in your pocket and hides easier in your hand, letting you take a secret, relaxing CBD toke anywhere you go.

Two New Vape Flavors

There are many returning flavors among CBDfx’s new CBD vape pens, but two new flavors are expected to quickly become fan favorites: Mango Ice CBD Vape Pen and Watermelon Skit CBD + THC Vape Pen. These two new flavors help round out CBDfx’s line of CBD vapes, giving users an even split of four broad spectrum CBD vapes and four full spectrum CBD + THC vapes to choose from.

CBDfx’s Line of Broad Spectrum CBD Vape Pens

First, let’s meet CBDfx’s broad spectrum CBD vape pens. If you’ve enjoyed CBDfx’s vapes before, you’ll notice a few returning stars with the aforementioned tropical-mango newcomer.

Each CBDfx broad spectrum CBD vape pen offers these key benefits:

  • 1500mg broad spectrum CBD per pen
  • Smooth hits & expertly crafted, all-natural flavor
  • Disposable & discreet; no need to charge
  • Approximately 2500 puffs per pen
  • Ceramic coil with 5mL of CBD liquid
  • Rechargeable / Disposable

Mango Ice CBD Vape Pen

With sweet notes of tropical mangoes and a zingy ice sensation, CBDfx’s Mango Ice CBD Vape Pen offers layers of flavors—with CBD’s patented relaxing effects. Just a couple of puffs and you’ll be on tropical island time, with a mouthful of chilled, flavorful mangoes!

Blue Raspberry CBD Vape Pen

A staple to CBDfx’s line of CBD vape pens, Blue Raspberry CBD Vape Pen has long been a best-seller at, giving users CBD’s soothing benefits with a pop of sweet berry flavors. CBDfx’s tweaks to this pen’s design have led to an even stronger mouthful of flavor and more potent vapor clouds, so you can relish in a more profound blue raspberry CBD vaping experience. 

Cool Mint CBD Vape Pen

Reminiscent of their Fresh Mint CBD Vape Pen, CBDfx’s revamped Cool Mint CBD Vape Pen packs even more refreshing spearmint flavors in their extremely portable, pocket-sized CBD vapes. This flavor offers a cool, icy zing that fills the lungs, before filling the air around you, with a strong minty aroma. It’s a must-have for spearmint lovers and fresh-breath enthusiasts. 

Strawberry Lemonade CBD Vape Pen

Like summertime in your pocket, CBDfx’s Strawberry Lemonade CBD Vape Pen couples two delicious fruit flavors into one swirl of relaxing, CBD-infused vapor. The marriage of strawberries and lemons makes for a sweet and tangy taste that lasts from inhale to exhale, bringing you a mouthful of summer year-round!

CBDfx’s Line of THC + Full Spectrum CBD Vape Pens

Along with their broad spectrum CBD vape pens, CBDfx has also retooled their THC + full spectrum CBD vape pens, packing more cannabinoids into a compact personal vaporizer, bringing even more CBD, THC, and delicious flavors to your vaping experience. 

Here are a few key details that make these vape pens stand out from the crowd:

  • 1500mg full spectrum CBD per pen
  • 10mg THC per pen
  • Disposable & discreet; no need to charge
  • Approximately 2500 puffs per pen
  • Ceramic coil with 5mL of CBD liquid
  • Warning: May cause psychotropic effects

Watermelon Skit THC + CBD Vape Pen

As a newcomer to CBDfx’s vape lineup, Watermelon Skit THC + CBD Vape Pen is about to make a name for itself. Crafted with tasty terpenes from Watermelon Zkit, a popular cannabis strain, this Watermelon Skit THC + CBD vape pen offers delicious flavors and a relaxing cannabis experience. 

Purple Punch THC + CBD Vape Pen

CBDfx’s Purple Punch THC + CBD Vape Pen contains strain-specific terpenes, giving users all the flavors of this classic cannabis strain. This CBD vape provides uniquely relaxing effects, with the help of full spectrum CBD and delta 9’s synergistic swirl. 

Maui Wowie THC + CBD Vape Pen

Their Maui Wowie THC + CBD Vape Pen boasts a specialized flavor profile that’ll remind seasoned cannabis enjoyers of this all-time great strain. The CBD vape pen’s orange color is easy to spot when you think it’s lost, but even easier to hide in your palm as you take a discreet, Maui-ful puff!

Pineapple Express THC + CBD Vape Pen

A legendary Hollywood strain, Pineapple Express is perhaps one of the most famous cannabis strains worldwide—and CBDfx has captured its delicious flavors in their Pineapple Express THC + CBD Vape Pen. This vape pen hits smooth and gives users a subtle, relaxing experience. 

What Is CBD?

After meeting CBDfx’s full line of CBD vape pens, you might need a little refresher on specific terms. First, all of these vape pens contain effective levels of cannabidiol, also called CBD. CBD is a member of the cannabinoid family. Cannabinoids are organic compounds native to all cannabis plants. While there are over a hundred cannabinoids found in cannabis plants, CBD is one of the most abundant, known primarily for its popular wellness-boosting benefits. 

CBD (like other cannabinoids) achieves its patented effects by interacting with your body’s endocannabinoid system. This cell-signaling system is made up of receptors that span all across your body. These receptors regulate essential functions like sleep, mood, appetite, pain, and more. When these receptors are out of sync, you might feel imbalanced, but after you take a CBD product, like inhaling CBD-rich vapor, the cannabinoids filter through your body and engage with these receptors, bolstering the system’s performance and creating a long list of wellness benefits.**

This is how products like CBD vapes provide their relaxing, soothing, and calming effects. But, as we mentioned earlier, there are different types of CBD, and CBDfx uses two in their CBD vape pens. 

Full Spectrum CBD vs. Broad Spectrum CBD

CBDfx uses full spectrum CBD in their four CBD + THC vapes and broad spectrum CBD in their other four CBD vape pens. The difference between these two types of CBD lies in their cannabinoid profiles.

When companies pull CBD oil from raw hemp plants, they pass the plants through a simple extraction process to strip all unnecessary plant matter. This filtration process leaves behind hemp’s aromatic properties, including terpenes and flavonoids, and its complete cannabinoid profile, which has over a hundred different cannabinoids, including less than 0.3% THC. 

While this isn’t enough to elicit cannabis’ iconic psychoactive effects, it is enough to potentially trigger the Entourage Effect. This effect occurs when multiple cannabinoids simultaneously interact with your body’s endocannabinoid receptors. Each cannabinoid synergistically boosts the others’ effects on the mind and body, leading to a more profound wellness-boosting experience.** 

But still, 0.3% may be too much THC for some adults. So, companies also offer broad spectrum CBD—the second most comprehensive type of CBD. Broad spectrum CBD contains the same cannabinoids and aromatic compounds as full spectrum CBD (terpenes and flavonoids), but its THC levels have been filtered down to undetectable levels. So, you can still potentially experience a more profound wellness-boosting effect, thanks to the Entourage Effect, but this boost might not be as profound as that from full spectrum CBD.**

What Is in These CBD Vapes?

Though their CBD e-liquid formulas are different, these disposable CBD vapes all contain the same components:


CBD oil is teeming with all-natural compounds like cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. After filtering the hemp-extracted oil from the raw plants, CBDfx adds CBD oil to their vape juice. This honey-hued oil is viscous and rich in an earthy, funky flavor. But this CBD oil is not suitable for vaping—not in this form. So, they need to add a couple other ingredients to give the juice its flavor and vapor density. 

Propylene Glycol/Vegetable Glycerin

Inside all types of vape juice, from CBD vape juices to THC vape juices, you’ll find varying levels of propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin—the two ingredients that give vape juices its flavor and vapor consistency. Propylene glycol is a transparent, odorless liquid that provides the vape with juice its flavor. But too much propylene glycol, not balanced with enough vegetable glycerin, can cause a strong throat hit—a sensation many adults don’t enjoy. 

Vegetable glycerin is a natural chemical derived from vegetable oil. It gives the vape juice differing levels of vapor consistency. The more vegetable glycerin, the heavier the cloud of vapor. Plus, vegetable glycerin helps mellow the throat hit from high levels of propylene glycol. 

These CBD vape pens from CBDfx have a balanced 50/50 ratio of propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin, making for a vaporous, flavorful, and pleasant vaping experience. 

How to Vape Broad Spectrum CBD Vapes

If it’s your first time vaping CBD, a little crash course might help you optimize your experience with these new CBDfx vapes!

These pens come pre-filled and pre-charged, so you can use them as soon as they’re unwrapped from the box. They don’t have a button to activate the battery; just take a small inhale off the mouthpiece and let the vapor settle in your lungs. You’ll notice the fruity flavors (delicious, right?) and gradually feel CBD’s soothing, non-psychoactive effects. Because these pens use broad spectrum CBD, you don’t have to worry about potentially getting “high.” Just stash it in your pocket, backpack, or purse, and take the good vibes with you!

How to Vape THC + CBD Vapes

Now, CBDfx’s Delta 9 THC + CBD Vapes are a little different. These Delta 9 THC + CBD vapes contain 10mg of delta 9 THC per pen. While 10mg is not a lot compared to the 1500mg of full spectrum CBD oil in the pens, this amount may potentially lead to psychoactive effects. So, take small, starter puffs spaced out over time if you want to avoid a potentially psychotropic experience. 

CBD Vape Products vs. CBD Gummies

While CBD vapes are among some of the most popular CBD products, many adults don’t enjoy vaping. They like getting their daily dose of CBD in a variety of other ways, like CBD gummies. CBD gummies are soft, fruit-flavored chews packed with an effective dose of CBD. Instead of vaping CBD, you can just enjoy a dose of CBD all at once, in the convenience of a flavorful gummy.

Since a CBD gummy has to pass through your digestive system—a long, arduous path—it can generally take 30 minutes to two hours to feel the gummy’s effects, depending on your body composition, height, weight, and other bioavailability factors. On the other hand, vaping CBD can elicit calming, soothing effects in a matter of minutes, if not seconds. This quick timeline is because cannabinoids in vapor filter through your lungs and into your bloodstream almost immediately after your first inhale. 

Are CBDfx CBD Vapes Right for You?

In the world of disposable CBD vape products, CBDfx has long been a key player, giving users access to high-quality CBD oil vape juice in a reliable, disposable pen. Now, with their updated line of CBD oil vapes, CBDfx has enhanced your experience by upgrading their vape devices and boosting their formulas, so you get more CBD (and more flavor) in every pen!

So, are CBDfx CBD vapes right for you? 

Only if you want a classic CBD experience in a high-quality, discreet, pocket-sized vape pen perfect for any occasion!

What Is THCA: Is THCA Different From THC?

THCA (tetrahydrocannabinolic acid) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid and the acidic form of THC. 

That’s the nice, neat, simple answer. But that’s only the tip of this cannabis-shaped iceberg. THCA has quickly become a go-to cannabinoid for brands and customers alike, offering a diverse range of benefits and effects that other cannabinoids can’t quite match. And now, with the budding hemp market nearing full bloom, companies are quickly trying to capitalize on this growing trend, creating a range of THCA-infused options. 

In this article, we’ll delve into the science behind THCA and how it relates to more well-known cannabinoids (THC and CBD.) We’ll show you how brands are beginning to find creative ways to bring this cannabinoid to market, and we’ll introduce you to an exciting collaboration between two cannabis titans that have put THCA in the spotlight. 

But first, let’s define our terms. 

So, What Is THCA?

THCA stands for tetrahydrocannabinolic acid. Notice anything familiar in that chemical name? Do you see “tetrahydrocannabinol” buried in there? Tetrahydrocannabinol is the chemical name for fan-favorite THC. So, how are these two cannabinoids related? THCA is the precursor to THC. THCA is non-psychoactive until it converts to THC through non-enzymatic processes called decarboxylation. 

I know that’s a lot of science. But this is the exciting process that happens every time you spark up or heat cannabis buds in the oven. 

Did that confuse you even more? 

Let’s explain.

THCA’s Basic Form

As a cannabis plant grows, little bushels of spiky green flower bud out from its stem. During this time, terpene and cannabinoid content begin developing, starting with the cannabinoid CBGA: the mother of all cannabinoids. During the plant’s maturation stages, CBGA naturally breaks down, splitting into THCA and CBDA—yes, CBD also begins with an acidic form. These are the cannabinoids you’d find if you put raw hemp flower under a microscope—the acidic forms of cannabis’ two most abundant cannabinoids. 

In this raw cannabis state, THCA is non-psychoactive. Instead, THCA offers wellness benefits comparable to CBD, which help soothe and relax mind-body tension. These therapeutic benefits are thought to be caused by THCA’s unique atomic structure. Juxtaposed to THC, THCA has an additional carboxyl ring, which is thought to prevent it from binding with the brain’s CB1 receptors—the receptors that elicit THC’s psychoactive effects. But, when THCA loses that carboxyl group (and that little A at the end of its name), it gains the ability to bind with the necessary cannabinoid receptors to incite a classic cannabis experience. 


This process of decarboxylation occurs when intense heat and pressure strip away a cannabinoid’s carboxyl ring—the little chain of molecules that differentiates THCA from THC. This process converts THCA to THC, unlocking the latter’s psychoactive properties. 

Now, THC is free to bind with the cerebral receptors responsible for THC’s psychoactive effects. Many companies decarboxylate THCA molecules by baking them in an oven. But that’s only one way to convert THCA to THC. These hemp companies also pack prerolls with THCA-rich flower. 

Once lit with a lighter, the flower in these THCA prerolls converts into THC-rich smoke right before your eyes, letting you enjoy all the euphoric feels associated with cannabis. 

How Do You Use THCA?

Brands use THCA in a number of different ways, from infusing it into hemp flower and vape juice to formulating it alongside intoxicating cannabinoids to make delicious gummies. Before your first rendezvous with THCA, it might be helpful to see how each of these products compare—and how to use them.

THCA Prerolls

Prerolls let you see THCA’s transformation up close. THCA prerolls typically come in packs of three or five and carry hemp-derived THCA flower, tightly wrapped in ready-to-smoke joints. Once lit, the THCA molecules in this flower convert instantly into THC, which you then inhale, and well, enjoy the intoxicating effects of THC. 

How to Use: Prerolls are the easiest way to enjoy the smoky experience and elevating effects of THC. Rolling your own preroll takes little practice, and a whole lot of patience. Opting for a preroll lets you skip the hassle of rolling your own joint and get to the fun faster. All you have to do is take a THCA preroll out from the pack, park the filtered end between your lips, and light the twisted side with a lighter. Obviously, this is a pretty smoky experience. So, make sure you’re in a smoke-friendly, well-ventilated space. 

THCA Vapes

THCA vapes work similarly to THCA prerolls; the THCA molecules convert to THC when exposed to heat. But this process creates a discreet vapor rather than a loud cloud of smoke. Plus, many brands enhance their THCA vapes’ intoxicating effects by formulating their vape juice with complementary psychoactive cannabinoids. 

How to Use: Most THCA vapes come in disposable vape pens or replaceable vape cartridges. When using a vape pen, just take a small puff off the mouthpiece and wait for the effects to set in. With a THCA vape cartridge, screw the glass tube on any 510-threaded vape battery and make sure the connection is secure before using. THCA vapes elicit effects quickly, much like THCA prerolls. So, expect to feel THC’s intoxicating effects in a matter of minutes, if not seconds. 

THCA Gummies

Compared to the other two types of THCA products, THCA gummies are a little different. These are the only THCA products that let you enjoy the therapeutic, non-intoxicating benefits of THCA. In many of these THCA gummies, cannabis brands add various psychoactive cannabinoids to raise the gummies’ effects on the mind and body, giving users a potent, though relaxing, elevated experience. 

How to Use: If it’s your first time using a THC edible like THCA gummies, start off with half a gummy. These multi-faceted formulas tend to be pretty intense, especially for those with weaker tolerances. Effects from THCA edibles take longer to set in than vapes and prerolls. So, take a desired dose and wait. It can generally take 30 minutes to two hours to feel the effects from THCA gummies, depending on personal bioavailability, like your height, weight, and body composition. Once these intoxicating effects set in, they can generally last around six to eight hours. 

When you’re looking for the right THCA products, particularly THCA gummies, you’ll see they may contain a number of different cannabinoids. Each of these hemp-derived compounds brings unique benefits and effects—ones that complement THCA’s therapeutic properties.

THCA vs. Delta 9

Delta 9 tetrahydrocannabinol (delta 9 THC) is the most abundant form of THC. When you imagine the classic cannabis experience (munchies, giggles, and waves of euphoria), you’re picturing delta-9 THC’s effects on the mind and body. Delta 9 THC is one of the THC molecules THCA converts into when you smoke a THCA preroll or puff a THCA vape. 

THCA vs. Delta 8

Delta 8 tetrahydrocannabinol (delta 8 THC) is a naturally occurring minor cannabinoid. In the last few years, hemp-derived delta 8 products have quickly become some of the best-selling cannabis products nationwide. Delta 8 THC is popular for its milder intoxicating effects; many adults agree that these effects feel less overpowering than delta 9 THC. You can find delta 8 THC alongside THCA in a number of THCA edibles and gummies. 


Like tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid. THCV provides minimal psychoactive effects and is mostly popular for its energizing benefits. 

All-New THCA Products from ItsPurpl & TRĒ House

Two wonderful, new products from TRĒ House and ItsPurpl—two of the most iconic cannabis brands on the market—are at the forefront of this spike in THCA’s popularity. 

Purple Punch THCA Gummies

Purple Punch THCA Gummies from TRĒ House & ItsPurpl are pretty potent—seriously. Each gummy comes packed with a carefully crafted formula of THCA, delta 9 THC, delta 8 THC, and THC-P, totaling 155mg of cannabinoids per piece. Plus, these THCA gummies pop with a sweetly delicious fruit flavor. What more could you ask for?!

Granddaddy Purple THCA Prerolls

Infused with terpenes from the classic strain, the Granddaddy Purple THCA Prerolls from TRĒ House & ItsPurpl are each packed tightly with half a gram of THCA-heavy hemp flower. Once you light this THCA flower, it immediately converts to THC, giving you a potent head and body buzz. 

A common question surrounding these hemp-derived THC-A products has to do with legality. Are these THCA products legal? As with all of the cannabis products we offer, these THCA products are federally legal hemp products, made with 2018 Farm Bill-compliant hemp.

The 2018 Farm Bill paved the way for federally legal hemp cultivation and manufacturing, giving us a hustling, bustling hemp-based market. This federal Farm Bill defined the difference between low-THC hemp plants and high-THC marijuana plants—the two most common forms of cannabis. But, in recent years, some states have passed their own laws regarding hemp cultivation and use. So, to make sure these hemp-derived products are legal in your area, confirm with your local and state municipalities.

Is THCA Right for You?

So, with all this in mind, is THCA right for you?

Compared to all the other popular hemp-based cannabinoids, THCA is one of the most versatile. In its base form, THCA delivers subtle relaxation and therapeutic benefits, while keeping the mind firmly planted. Then, when heated, THCA pops with all the classic psychoactive, euphoric effects we’ve come to love about THC, making it right for a majority of cannabis users. 

THCA lets you enjoy a well-rounded cannabis experience, giving you the choice between the plant’s wellness properties and psychoactive effects—a feat no other cannabinoid can offer.

Upgrade Your Stash With TRĒ House’s New Magic Mushroom Vape Pens!

Only recently has the world of legal psychoactive products welcomed a familiar friend back into the fold: magic mushrooms. And now, you can experience the effects of these legal magic mushrooms like never before, formulated into delicious fruit-flavored gummies and creamy chocolate bars. These delectable edibles are quickly becoming go-to psychotropic products for many adults—and they’re consistently among our best-sellers. 

Adding to their already stellar mushroom collection, the top-tier hemp- and mushroom-based brand, TRĒ House, has expanded their line of magic mushroom products, becoming one of the first companies to offer pocket-sized, portable products with faster-acting effects: magic mushroom vapes! These pre-charged and pre-filled vape pens contain the same psychoactive mushroom extracts as TRĒ House’s other fan-favorite mushroom product, but these disposables offer a few extra incredible benefits. 

Here, we’ll introduce you to TRĒ House’s exciting line of mushroom vapes, give you a glimpse of each delicious flavor profile, show you how to enjoy them best, and help you discern if they’re right for you—or if you should stick to the tried-and-true magic mushroom gummies and chocolate bars. 

But first, let’s introduce you to one of our best-selling brands, a company that has quickly amassed a loyal nationwide following: TRĒ House. 

Who Is TRĒ House?

Based in Southern California, TRĒ House has been a significant player in the world of hemp-based psychoactive products for the past few years, garnering a reputation for their highly potent, high-quality vape and edible products. From THC-P to HHC to the trendsetting delta 8 THC, TRĒ House offers a diverse range of hemp-based cannabinoids, in a wide variety of products. But recently, TRĒ House has set down a new path, venturing out of the hemp, cannabinoid lane and into the world of legal, psychoactive mushrooms. Now, they’re one of the first brands to bring premier, third-party-tested magic mushroom products to market. If you’ve tried these gummies and chocolate bars before, you can attest to their potent psychoactive effects. If you haven’t, buckle up; they’re pretty potent.

What Are Magic Mushrooms?

When you imagine “magic mushrooms,” you might be picturing psilocybin or amanita muscaria mushrooms. These mushrooms are the classic psychedelic mushrooms, and you won’t find them in these or any of TRĒ House’s mushroom products. Rather, to give their products potent, psychoactive effects, TRĒ House uses a special formula of adaptogens, nootropics, and a proprietary blend of mushroom extracts. All of these ingredients create a synergistic swirl and incite effects that feel similar to the classic (federally illegal) psychedelic mushrooms.  

What Are Mushroom Vape Pens?

Magic mushroom vapes are disposable pens that come pre-charged and pre-filled with potent, psychoactive vape juice. Typically, this vape juice is fruit-flavored, radiating with delicious tastes and aromas from inhale to exhale. Brands ensure these pens are ready to be enjoyed when you unwrap them. So, you don’t have to tinker with charging cables or check if a pod is correctly filled. Just free it from the box, get yourself nice and cozy, and puff your way down the rabbit hole. 

Compared to magic mushroom edibles, these vape pens provide faster-acting effects. As soon as you take a puff, you’ll start to feel the pen’s head-heavy effects in a matter of minutes, if not seconds. And, because these effects are so fast-acting, they won’t last as long as those from edibles. So, you may need to take periodic puffs to maintain your ideal state of cerebral elevation. 

TRĒ House’s Shroom Vape Pens

TRĒ House has just unveiled their line of shroom vapes, giving us all a pretty tough pick—if you’re only picking one, that is. Their line of mushroom vapes includes four different fruit-flavored pens. Each disposable vape pen boasts a different, delicious flavor profile, but the same active ingredients. So, you can expect to achieve the same type of effects as any of them, just different flavored clouds of delicious, psychoactive vapor. These vapes come with a pre-charged pen battery and pre-filled with two grams of vape juice. 

Let’s meet each one and help you find the vape pen that fits your ideal vaping experience—and taste buds. 

Apple Tart Mushroom Pen

Reminiscent of Grandma’s freshly baked apple pastries, TRĒ House’s Apple Tart Mushroom Vape Pen is sugary sweet, with delicate notes of spiced cinnamon and apples. 

Blue Jello Mushroom Pen

TRĒ House’s Blue Jello Mushroom Pen pops with a classic blue-raspberry flavor. Its aromas are sweet but not overpowering, giving users a pleasant mouthfeel before a mind-melting experience. 

Pink Lemonade Mushroom Pen

Sour, tart, and sweet, TRĒ House’s Pink Lemonade Mushroom Vape Pen has layers of flavors that start off lip-puckeringly sour before tagging the sugar-sensing taste buds in for a swirl of dancing aromas. 

Mango Smoothie Mushroom Pen

Puffing on TRĒ House’s Mango Smoothie Mushroom Vape Pen feels and tastes like enjoying a tropical mango smoothie through a straw. Its sweet, mango flavors are backed by a certain indescribable rich, almost creamy texture. 

Mushroom Vapes vs. THC vapes

Now, we know these vapes will do more than just excite our customers; these mushroom vapes will open a larger discussion about the effects of these and THC vape pens—how are they similar, how are they different, and which one is “stronger?” Despite being a relative term, “stronger” can’t really define the difference between these two types of potent, psychoactive vape pens. Comparing these effects is apples to oranges. 

Let’s explain. 

Cannabis, the organic vessel for THC, comes in many types of strains with many types of terpenes tagging along. All of these strains produce a wide variety of effects—and these effects differ from person to person. Sativa strains, for instance, are said to boost energy, drive creativity, and enhance good vibes. Indica strains, on the other hand, are advertised as relaxation-inducers, wrapping the body in a warm blanket of softly sizzling TV static. 

These magic mushroom products, conversely, are said to be much more cerebral than even the strongest sativa strains. Many adults agree these effects are head-heavy, focused on almost exclusively exciting the three-pound organ between your temples. Similar to THC vapes, effects from shroom vapes set in rather quickly, so prepare for a quick lift-off. After a few minutes, many adults report a strong, creative, heady buzz. Also, like THC vapes, these effects don’t linger for hours on end. Typically, these effects can gradually dissipate after 30 minutes to two hours. 

But, we also have to point out that effects vary from person to person. What you feel after a magic mushroom puff might not be what your friend next to you feels. So, keep your mind open when tripping into your first marvelous mushroom experience! 

How to Use a Mushroom Vape

Like with THC vape pens, mushroom vapes take minimal prep work before your first puff. Don’t worry, it’s not a lot; it’s mostly about readying your space for a strong euphoric experience. We always recommend plopping on the couch, feet up, and reclining into all the good feels. Or a stroll in nature could help complement the pen’s psychoactive effects. 

After you unwrap the pen from its box, get cozy. Then, take a light puff off the mouthpiece—just enough to taste the pen’s fruity flavor. Wait a few minutes to see what effects a light puff brings. Then, take longer, stronger puffs to reach your desired euphoria. After you feel comfortable with the effects, sit back, relax, and enjoy. Take more puffs periodically to maintain or enhance your experience, or ride the earlier puffs out and cruise back down to the comfort of your couch. 

Any time we’re talking about magic mushrooms, legality is typically a big concern for customers. But since these magic mushroom vapes don’t contain any outlawed extract, ingredient, or mushroom, like psilocybin and amanita muscaria mushrooms, they are legal. Plus, brands like TRĒ House pass their products through third-party testing to confirm the product’s potency and purity. You can find a product’s lab reports on its product page under the product description. 

Are Mushroom Vapes Right for You?

While mushroom vapes might have piqued your interest, they may not be the best type of magic mushroom product for you. Mushroom vapes provide fast-acting, short-lasting effects. These effects are comparable to a quick spike and a fast drop-off—which may be just what you’re looking for. But if you want a longer-lasting, gradual onset of effects, magic mushroom edibles might be better for you. 

Mushroom Gummies

Magic mushroom gummies are soft, fruit-flavored chews. TRĒ House uses the same active ingredient in these as in their vapes, so you’ll get a similar magic carpet ride through the cosmos—but the effects won’t rush in. Rather, these effects can generally set in over 30 minutes to two hours, depending on various, unique bioavailability factors. And these effects can generally last for six to eight hours, which also depends on certain bioavailability factors. 

For their Magic Mushroom Gummies, TRĒ House recommends 1-3 for a subtle microdose, 4-6 for a solid standard dose, and 7+ for a real stumble through the rabbit hole. 

Mushroom Chocolate Bars

If fruity gummies aren’t your speed, TRĒ House also has four delicious Magic Mushroom Chocolate Bars, each with 15 evenly dosed squares. Choose from two milk chocolate and two white chocolate flavors, while following the same dosing guide. 1-3 squares for a soft-pitch microdose, 4-6 for a curveball through the Universe, and 7 or more for a fastball-slider straight down the rabbit hole.

Holiday Gift Guide 2023: Best Gifts Under $50!

Giving the best wellness gifts to your friends and loved ones shouldn’t break the bank. While many hemp- and mushroom-based products retail at premium prices, some high-quality products sit at more budget-friendly costs. The challenge is finding those top-shelf, yet affordable products in a sea of hemp-based supplements. Don’t worry; we’re here to help!

We’ve scoured our online shelves and found the best, highest-quality products under $50—all from top-tier brands like CBDfx, TRĒ House, Lazarus Naturals, and The Essential Co.

This holiday gift guide will introduce you to our leading wallet-friendly picks, from fan-favorite CBD gummies to muscle-soothing CBD topicals and fast-acting CBD oil tinctures. 

But first, let’s discuss how to use this holiday gift guide best!

Finding the Best Budget-Friendly Gifts

When searching for the best hemp- and mushroom-based products, it’s essential to know what different ingredients do. 

For more wellness-based benefits, look for products with non-psychoactive cannabinoids like CBD, CBG, CBN, and CBC. These compounds offer a wide range of benefits for sleep, stress, energy, overall wellness, and minor aches and pains.** Also, if you want to give the adults in your life nootropic and adaptogenic benefits, check out our curated collection of functional mushroom products. These gummies and tinctures contain natural mushrooms like lion’s mane, reishi, turkey tail, and cordyceps to help boost wellness, focus, and relaxation.**

If you want to give the gift of potent, psychoactive effects, look no further than products with THC and HHC. These two cannabinoids produce a range of euphoric effects—ones notoriously associated with cannabis’ classic “high.” For a unique type of psychoactive effect, we also carry an expanding collection of magic mushroom products. These deliciously potent gummies and chocolate bars offer a seriously trippy experience!

CBD Topicals

Give the gift of soothing relief with CBD topicals! These creams, lotions, balm sticks, and bath products help nourish skin with all-natural ingredients while easing minor aches and pains in muscles and joints.** Here are two fan-favorite CBD topicals under $50:

Full Spectrum CBD Balm Stick – Lazarus Naturals

And yes, we mean everyone!

Tips for Finding the Best Gifts

Before we jump into our massive catalog of best-selling products, let’s help whittle your search down a little. The first step to finding the best gifts for everyone in your life is understanding what type of products that person (or pet) prefers. 

Does your friend value vapes over gummies? Does your neighbor swear by delta 8 THC and reject all other alternative cannabinoids? Does your pet scrunch their nose at salmon-flavored treats but lick their lips for all things chicken? Do magic mushrooms make your Grandpa’s world go round? 

Keeping these key details in mind can help you find the perfect, most extraordinary, “Oh my god, thank you!” gift for everyone in your life.

Wellness Benefits vs. Psychoactive Effects

Our collection of hemp and mushroom products is vast—to put it lightly. Some products will boost your wellness, providing benefits for sleep, stress, energy, overall wellness, and minor aches and pains, and some will launch your mind into Rudolph’s flight path. So, have an idea of what type of benefits or effects the people on your shopping list would want.

Are they interested in wellness-based benefits? Look for products with non-psychoactive cannabinoids, like CBD, CBG, CBN, and CBC. Also, products with functional mushrooms can provide a long list of adaptogenic and nootropic benefits.

If the people on your list like waves of euphoric effects and want to enjoy Christmas on the moon, check out products with psychoactive compounds, like THC, HHC, and magic mushrooms

Quick Effects vs. Gradual Effects

Next, do the people on your list want a rapid rise or a gradual onset of effects? For instance, edibles can take 30 minutes to two hours to produce effects, depending on a person’s height, weight, body composition, and other bioavailability factors. Vapes and prerolls, on the other hand, can take a few minutes, if not seconds, to incite effects. 

However, effects from vapes and prerolls oftentimes only last for 30 minutes to two hours, while effects from edibles can last for six to eight hours. So, knowing how long the people on your list would like to enjoy a product’s benefits or effects can also help you find the best, most perfect gifts. 

Who Is in Your Whoville?

Last, keep in mind who these people are to you. The perfect gift for your best friend may not suit your hot neighbor (yes, we’re including them, too!), and the best gift for your work spouse may make your actual spouse roll their eyes. So, understanding who is in your Whoville will help you decipher which gift to give them.

Need a little help? Well, that’s what this gift guide is for!

Your Sweet Mom

Let’s start with someone who should be close to the top of your list: your mother.

The Best Delta 8 Products of 2023

If you’re new to the world of novel cannabinoids, you might not have tried delta-8 THC yet. Or, perhaps you’ve already fallen in love with this wonderful substitute for classic delta-9 cannabis. Whether you’re a delta-8 connoisseur or not, you still might need some help finding the best legal delta-8 THC products of 2023. 

In this article, we’ll introduce you to our 10 favorite delta-8 THC products of the year and explain how we arrived at this list. We’ll walk you through our thought process and clue you in on what makes good delta-8 products good, great delta-8 products great, and the best delta-8 THC products divine.

But first, let’s get acclimated with one of the most famous novel cannabinoids currently on the market: delta-8 THC. 

What Is Delta 8 THC?

When you think of cannabis, delta-9 THC no doubt comes to mind. Delta-9 THC is the most abundant molecule along THC’s molecular chain. For the uninitiated few, THC is the cannabinoid responsible for cannabis’s psychoactive effects. Along THC’s molecular chain, there are other THC molecules, as well: ones that offer similar euphoric effects. This is where we find delta-8 THC.

If you’ve enjoyed cannabis hemp or cannabis marijuana products in the past, you’ve unknowingly encountered trace levels of delta-8 THC. In both low-THC cannabis hemp and high-THC cannabis marijuana, delta-8 plays softly in the background. Recently, though, cultivators have been able to extract delta-8 molecules from hemp-derived CBD and showcase them in a variety of pleasurable products. Now, you’ll find delta-8-rich oil infused in gummies, vape juice, syrups, and other THC-infused products. 

When you take a delta-8 product, the delta-8 interacts with your mind and body similarly to delta-9 THC, but the effects are slightly muted. You’ll feel a milder head buzz with delta-8, but a more pronounced body buzz. So, if you have a lower tolerance, you can enjoy delta-8’s mellow, uplifting effects without worrying about getting too elevated. If you have a stronger tolerance, you might need to take more delta-8 to feel effects comparable to those from delta-9 THC. Fortunately, there are products out there both for folks seeking a mellow delta-8 buzz and those seeking heavier doses of this THC compound.

Our Rubric

All of these delta-8 products come to us from well-respected and loved brands in the cannabis hemp community. In the past few years, many new CBD and THC companies have vied for a seat at the table, often hastily producing untested and unreliable products. To help you sort these bad players from respected CBD and THC brands, we’ve created this list to highlight the highest-quality delta-8 products of 2023. 

Unsurprisingly, this list of delta darlings includes popular brands, like TRĒ House, Two Hawk Hemp Co., and MoonWlkr, that routinely run their products through third-party lab testing, ensuring that their customers get an unprecedented level of transparency.

What other factors led us to choose the 10 best delta-8 products of 2023? 

Product Quality

First, we care about how well a product was made, including factors like flavor and overall quality. For delta-8 vapes, we look at how the pen hit, how the vapor tasted, if there was any vape juice residue on the mouthpiece, and if the PG/VG ratio felt right. We tend to steer away from delta-8 vapes and carts with heavier throat hits. For delta-8 edibles, we look at flavor, consistency, texture, and how long the effects take to set in.


Then, we look at what the brand used to formulate that delta-8 THC product. We look at whether or not the product has any accompanying cannabinoid compounds to enhance delta-8’s effects or if any additional ingredients have been added to alter the experience. For edibles, we look at ingredients and possible additives, leaning toward delta-8 products that value natural ingredients over artificial ones. 

Delta-8 Potency

This brings us to our last grading factor: How strong is the product? Since delta-8 is mellower than delta-9 THC, we look at how many milligrams of delta-8 are in the product to measure its potency. We also factor in if any other cannabinoids are enhancing the experience, such as delta-9 THC, delta-10 THC, THC-P, and others. If you’re a daily THC user, you might need a stronger dose of delta-8 THC to feel similar effects to delta-9. If you’re new to THC, delta-8 is the perfect place to start. 

10 Best Delta 8 Products of 2023

With these factors in mind, here are our 10 best legal delta-8 products of 2023, including a variety of delta-8 THC gummies, oils, vapes, and prerolls.

Delta-8 Gummies – TRĒ House

TRĒ House has already produced many of our favorite delta-8 products, including Bussin’ Berry Delta-8:Delta-9 Syrup, GS Cookies Live Resin Delta-8 Vape Cartridge, Wedding Crasher Live Resin Delta-8 Vape Pen, Super Lemon Haze Live Resin Delta-8 Vape Pen, and more. Among those quality delta-8 products was one of our favorite THC gummies: Tropic Mango Delta-8 + HHC + THC-P Gummies, featuring a potent dose of delta-8 THC, along with complementary THC-P and HHC.

This year, they’ve added a line of delta-8-only gummies that allow you to experience delta-8 THC in two levels. Their Strawberry Delta-8 Gummies and Mango Delta-8 Gummies are perfect for mellow, microdosed 25mg servings of delta-8 THC, ideal for maintaining your cool over the course of a long day.

Watermelon Zkittlez Atlas D8 Gummies – MoonWLKR

MoonWLKR is a major player in legal THC products, as well as health-friendly CBD edibles. To say MoonWLKR offers a variety of delta-8 gummies is an understatement, considering they offer (count ’em) 12 delta-8 gummy flavors in all.

This dosage is perfect for those who are new to THC-infused edibles and want to start with a low, mild dose. These gummy chews are also great for microdosing delta-8. Watermelon Zkittlez is a famous indica strain, so you can expect these delta-8 THC edibles to offer a minorly relaxing sensation. Other flavors include Black Raspberry Nix Delta-8 Gummies, Purple Punch Hydra Delta-8 Gummies, Blue Dream Europa Delta-8 Gummies, Passion Fruit Phoebe Delta-8 Gummies, and many more!

Dreamcatcher D8:CBN Oil Tincture – Two Hawk Hemp Co.

NuLeaf Naturals is largely known for their variety of single-cannabinoid gummy, capsule, and oil items, including formulas spotlighting CBD, CBN, CBG, CBC, and more. While they largely work in the health-conscious end of the cannabinoid spectrum, NuLeaf also offers some pure and potent THC products. 

Among these best-selling products is their Delta-8 THC Oil Tincture. This whole plant extract is offered in four strengths: 450mg, 750mg, and 1500mg delta-8.

Our customers love Geek’d for their innovative flavors and Farm Bill-compliant formulations in a wide variety of gummies, disposable vapes, cartridges, and syrups. Any one of these items could easily find its way onto a “best of” legal THC product list.

Finding the Right Dosage of CBD Capsules

Over the last few years, interest has spiked around CBD and other hemp-derived compounds. One of the most popular products that have only recently gained a swell of interest is CBD capsules. Formulated with a pre-measured dose of CBD, tablets are perfect for those who want a simple, accessible way to enjoy their daily serving of cannabinoids – plus potentially a few other healthful ingredients.

But how do you know the right dosage of CBD for you? If you’re new to the world of hemp or have a persistently low tolerance to hemp-derived compounds, start with 25mg and work your way up slowly. Though CBD isn’t psychoactive, it’s best to start low and increase your dosage over time to reap all the benefits of this age-old compound. 

While that sounds simple, it might not be for everyone – especially beginner CBD users. In this article, we’ll dive into CBD capsules, how they work, how to use them, and how to find the right dosage for you.

But first, we need to define a few terms and gain a rudimentary understanding of what CBD is.

What Is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a chemical compound in the cannabinoid family. Cannabinoids are native to hemp and cannabis plants. Currently, we’ve discovered over a hundred diverse cannabinoids, each with its own unique properties. Among this family of organic compounds, CBD remains king. It’s one of the most abundant cannabinoids and is popular for its therapeutic effects on the mind and body. 

Your Endocannabinoid System

Cannabinoids are special compounds. Each has its own unique effects on our physiological systems because of their interactions with our endocannabinoid system (ECS). Think of your ECS as a bridge between your mind and body. It is a network of receptors that plays a vital role in many physiological functions like sleep, appetite, mood, and energy. 

When you take a CBD health supplement, the cannabinoids from that product trek through your body, absorb into your bloodstream, and interact with your ECS receptors. These organic compounds boost the ECS’s ability to maintain balance within the mind and body. This is how cannabinoids like CBD, CBG, and CBN provide their list of wellness benefits. 

What Are CBD Capsules?

CBD capsules are premeasured pills with an effective dose of CBD. Many companies add various ingredients to their capsules to enhance or alter CBD’s effects on the mind and body.

When you take a CBD pill, it swims through your digestive system before reaching your liver. Here, the capsule is metabolized and ushered into the bloodstream, where the cannabinoids go on to engage your ECS receptors, inciting their list of benefits. Like other edible products, capsules take some time before you feel their effects. But once the effects set in, they last much longer than other CBD products like vapes or tinctures. 

What Is The Right Dose of CBD For You?

Understanding the right CBD dose for you starts with knowing your tolerance. Do you use CBD or other hemp-derived cannabinoids daily? Or are you new to the hemp plant and haven’t yet found a way to fit CBD into your daily routine? For beginners, we recommend starting with 25mg CBD and working your way up to 50mg. 25mg is a perfect dose to feel the effects of CBD slightly.

But, you can also take more or less than this recommended amount. Many users have found that 5mg and 100mg doses are just right for some occasions. It all comes down to your desired effects. So, start with 25mg, see how that dose feels and if it aligns with your desired effects, and then adjust accordingly. If 25mg isn’t enough, next time, take less if you want a weaker CBD experience. 

Benefits of CBD Capsules

Compared to other CBD products like vapes, tinctures, and topicals, CBD capsules have their own benefits. These benefits include how easy pills are to enjoy, their wide range of formulas, and their long-lasting benefits. 

Easy to Use

Other CBD products might tout the same benefits as capsules, but they aren’t quite as simple to use. Tinctures, for example, require measuring a dose in a dropper and then placing the oil under your tongue. Vapes require a non-discreet plume of vapor. Topicals require a little dry time. However, capsules require only a little water to wash down with. You can take a serving of CBD tablets simply and easily, and then continue your day. 

Wide Range of Formulas

Many companies craft their capsules using a wide range of formulas. Some of these formulas come with additional ingredients like caffeine to increase your energy during the day. Other formulas come with ingredients like melatonin or lavender to lull your mind and body to a deeper state of relaxation just before bed. And still, some capsules just offer a CBD-exclusive experience. So, when you choose CBD capsules, you get to choose between a wide breadth of fantastic, diverse formulas.

Long-Lasting Effects

Much like other CBD edibles, capsules travel through the digestive system before absorbing and metabolizing into the body. This is a longer process compared to vapes and tinctures. This path takes time. So, you won’t feel the effects of capsules instantly. But, you will feel their effects for longer – much longer, in fact. 

Top Shelf CBD Capsules

Naturally, we can’t just proclaim all the benefits of CBD capsules without recommending a few of our favorites. Like we always say, shop from a reliable, well-known brand if you’re just starting in the wild, wonderful world of CBD. Below are three noteworthy brands (CBDfx, NuLeaf Naturals, The Essential Co., and cbdMD). Each of these brands offers a wide selection of high-quality CBD products – selections that include a range of CBD capsules. 

Here are our favorite capsules from each of these pioneering brands. 

CBDfx’s Morning Capsules

Our first CBD capsules come from SoCal titan, CBDfx. Their CBD + CBG Morning Capsules touts 30mg of CBD, 5mg of CBG, 500mg of L-Tyrosine, and 150mg of extended-release caffeine – the perfect blend of ingredients to start your day. 

For those who don’t know, CBG is one of the newer non-psychoactive cannabinoids to hit the market. CBG offers its own unique set of benefits that mirror and complement CBD’s, making these morning capsules perfect before work or early midday. 

The Essential Co. Ultra Full Spectrum CBD Capsules

As one of the newest CBD brands to hit the market, The Essential Co. is quickly making a name for themselves among other premium CBD companies. Their Ultra Full Spectrum CBD Daily Capsules are crafted with the same attention and care as most high-quality CBD products, but The Essential Co. offers them to you at a fraction of the price. While their prices are unbeatable, their quality is in step with other notable hemp-based brands, giving you top-tier products within your budget!

NuLeaf’s Full Spectrum Hemp Extract CBD Capsules

If you’re interested in capsules that offer a CBD-exclusive experience, check out NuLeaf Naturals’ Full Spectrum Hemp Extract CBD Capsules. These softgel capsules come with 30mg of high-quality, full-spectrum CBD. These CBD tablets are perfect for those who want to experience the benefits of CBD without any additional ingredients.

Parting Thoughts

So, how do you know what dose of CBD is right for you? It takes a little trial and error before you can be sure. Since CBD isn’t psychoactive, you can’t take too much. But, to conserve your CBD product of choice, it’s essential to know how strong an effective dose is to optimize your CBD experience. 

As we’ve said earlier, start with 25mg and then work your way up or down gradually and slowly.

The Benefits of Delta 8 THC: How it Differs from Delta 9 THC

Delta 8 THC (D8) is the newest cannabinoid to take the hemp world by storm. Thanks to recent advances in cannabinoid research and renewed public interest, we can now enjoy this novel THC molecule in a variety of products. If you’ve tried cannabis before, you’ve no doubt tangoed with delta-9 THC (D9)––D8’s more famous cousin. But how do the effects of D9 compare to those of delta-8 THC? And how do you find the best THC products for you?

It all starts with knowing your tolerance to THC and your desired experience. Because there are so many different products and formulas to choose from, it can feel overwhelming trying to find the right delta-8 THC products for you––especially if you’re new to this cannabinoid.

So, we’ll explain the differences between D8 and its cannabinoid cousin, D9, while introducing you to products that tout either or both psychoactive molecules. Sit back, relax, and let’s learn a little about the newest cannabinoid on the market. 

The Hidden World of Cannabinoids

First, we’ll take a molecular peek inside the hemp plant. If we look at hemp-derived oil under a microscope, we’d see a sea of compounds swimming around. Many of these compounds, like terpenes and flavonoids, also exist in other plants, giving them their smell, flavor, and color. But other compounds are swimming in this rich, viscous hemp oil––ones only native to cannabis and hemp plants.

Meet cannabinoids––a family of organic chemical compounds found in hemp and cannabis plants. You may have heard of one of the most famous cannabinoids, cannabidiol (CBD). Others include CBG, CBC, CBN, and the already mentioned THC. When you take hemp-derived compounds, through an edible, vape, or tincture, the cannabinoids find their way into your bloodstream and engage your endocannabinoid system (ECS). 

Your ECS is a hidden network of receptors uniquely equipped to engage and process cannabinoids. This system is vital for physiological functions like sleep, appetite, mood, energy, and many more. When you supplement cannabinoids with a hemp-derived product, the cannabinoids bolster the system’s performance, improving its functions and causing a host of wellness-boosting benefits.

But while other cannabinoids are known for their therapeutic effects on the body, THC is slightly different. It’s the main psychoactive cannabinoid. 

What Is THC?

Tetrahydrocannabinol, known commonly as THC, is the only natural cannabinoid to illicit euphoric effects when interacting with the ECS. It’s the psychoactive compound behind cannabis’s iconic “high” sensation. But, if we bust out the microscope again, we’d find specific molecules along THC’s molecular chain––ones that offer their own euphoric effects. 

Delta-9 THC

The most abundant molecule along this molecular chain is delta-9 THC. It makes up so much of THC’s molecular chain that when we talk about THC, we almost always refer to delta-9 THC. If you’ve ever enjoyed a cannabis vape pen, infused gummy, or potent brownie, it was D9 working behind the scenes with your ECS. For years, it’s been the most popular THC cannabinoid––that is, until cannabis scientists found ways to highlight its lesser-known cannabinoid cousin, delta-8 THC. 

Delta-8 THC

On the surface, delta-8 THC doesn’t seem all that mighty. Sure, it exists in all hemp and cannabis plants, but at trace levels. It doesn’t play much of a role when you smoke, eat, or vape hemp or cannabis. 

However, over the last few years, scientists have found novel ways to showcase and extract delta-8 THC from hemp-derived CBD, bringing this shy cannabinoid to the front of your cannabis experience. This chemical process yields a THC oil rich in delta-8 THC, not delta-9. So, you can begin to feel and see the differences between delta 8 and delta 9.  

Differences Between D8 & D9

There are two main differences between these organic compounds: extraction and potency.


The first one is how companies extract D8 and D9. To extract delta-9 THC, many companies turn to marijuana––the federally prohibited cannabis plant. Many marijuana strains can have THC percentages that reach 30%. 

To extract D8, companies turn to a cannabis plant with naturally low levels of THC, hemp. By its nature (and regulated by the 2018 Farm Bill), hemp has 0.3 percent THC. Companies first extract CBD from hemp to formulate oil rich in delta-8 THC. Then, they run this CBD through a chemical process that transforms the CBD into delta-8 molecules, creating a D8-rich oil. 


The second main difference between delta-8 and delta-9 is their effects. While both THC molecules interact with your ECS similarly, D8 does so in a way that creates a more subtle euphoria. The effects from D8 feel muted, elevating the user’s mind only slightly. Delta-9, rather, produces a much more profound, THC-heavy experience, perfect for those with stronger tolerances.

Benefits of D8

So, why should you choose D8 over D9? 

If you’re a veteran of the ganja, with a veteran’s tolerance, D9 might be just what you need to feel your desired effects. But if you’re new to cannabis, D8 offers a milder introduction to THC. You can take a standard dose, whether that’s a hit off a pen or a single gummy, without the worry of being blasted into the Kuiper Belt. 

So, while some may not see “weaker effects” as a benefit, beginners might. It really all comes down to you and your own personal preferences. 

When searching for the right THC product, always start with a reliable, trustworthy brand. Over the past few years, the market for hemp-derived products has exploded. Now, adults across the country have unbridled access to discover the mysteries of the hemp plant for themselves. 

But not all companies are equal. Many companies rush their cultivation process, producing untested and unreliable products. 

So, we’re going to recommend three of our go-to D8 products produced by some of the most respected companies in the market. These companies (TRĒ House, Two Hawk Hemp Co., and CannaRiver) routinely run their products through third-party lab testing. This extra step gives you, the user, an added layer of transparency that other companies can’t compete with.

So, if you’re new to D8 and interested in finding a go-to product, here are three of our favorites!

Tropic Mango D8 + HHC + D10 Gummies – TRĒ House

First, we have TRĒ House’s Tropic Mango Gummies with an assortment of novel cannabinoids. These gummies are sweet without being overpowering, and they don’t leave a hideous aftertaste. With multiple cannabinoids enhancing D8’s subtle effects, this gummy produces a euphoric experience that’s really one of a kind. 

Since it’s an edible, the effects take a while to gradually set in; but it’s smooth sailing ahead once they do. The D8 keeps the experience grounded, while the HHC and D10 bring their own unique effects to the party. This gummy is a can’t-miss and should be at the top of your list. 

Granddaddy Purp D8 Cart – Two Hawk Hemp Co.

Next, we have a personal favorite: Two Hawk Hemp Co.’s Granddaddy Purp D8 Cart. This cartridge boasts a popular strain bred from Purple Urkle and Big Bud. It’s indica-dominant, so it’ll generate a body-heavy sensation that stills the mind and promotes relaxation––perfect just before bed. So, charge your vape battery and add Granddaddy Purp by Two Hawk Hemp Co. to your list!

Blue Dream D8 + D10 Vape Pen – CannaRiver

Last, we have a vape pen from one of the most respected brands in the industry, CannaRiver. Their Blue Dream D8 + D10 Vape Pen melds one of the most iconic strains in history with new cannabinoid technology to produce a euphoria unlike anything before. 

If you’ve had Blue Dream before (if you have, chances are you already love it), I’d wager that you haven’t had it as a D8 strain. With this vape pen, CannaRiver does what feels impossible. You really have to try it for yourself to understand. 

A Go-To D9 Product

Now, you may want to skip D8 and venture straight into D9. Don’t worry––we have some products for you too. 

Peach Pear D9 + CBD Gummies – TRĒ House

TRĒ House is a titan in the alternative cannabinoid space. So, it’s only fitting to include two of their best-selling products. Their D9 + CBD Peach Pear Gummies offer a delightful taste that brings a grounded, yet psychedelic experience. 

Is Delta-8 Best for You?

So, the final question is: should you give delta-8 a try? The answer depends on your personal preferences and your tolerance for THC. If you want a more robust THC experience, maybe try a D9 product or a D8 with additional cannabinoids like HHC or D10. If you want a milder trip to the stars, stick to D8––it’ll keep your body grounded with your head in the clouds.

What is Delta 8 THC: An Introduction to this Cannabinoid

In recent years, the hemp market has found its stride, introducing us to new products, new cannabinoids, and new ways of enjoying this age-old plant. Now, we can experience various shades of “high” from hemp-derived products like gummies, vapes, tinctures, and syrups. 

One such shade that offers a pleasantly unique, grounding experience is delta-8 THC. Maybe you’ve already fallen in love with delta-8 THC; maybe it’s on your hemp wishlist. Delta-8 THC is a form of THC that offers a similar experience to its cannabinoid cousin, delta-9 THC––an experience many adults find slightly less intense. This is why we refer to delta-8 THC as the “nicer sibling.” 

But what lies under delta-8 THC’s molecular hood? What makes it dissimilar to delta-9 THC and other novel cannabinoids like HHC, THC-P, and delta-10 THC? And, perhaps the most important question of all, should you try the “nicer sibling”? 

Within the last few years, we’ve seen a seismic shift in the hemp marketplace––largely thanks to the public’s renewed interest, advancements in scientific research, and hemp-friendly legislation. Now, many companies are debuting products that boast effective doses of delta-8 THC. But not all of these companies are reliable. Some are just trying to capitalize on the market, producing untested and unproven products. 

So, we’ll introduce you to the companies known for their high customer satisfaction and even higher-quality products––that get you, well…that get you high…

What is Delta 8 THC?

To understand what delta-8 THC is, we need to rewind the clock back a couple of decades. Think about your parents’ or grandparents’ era. The cannabis they smoked (or didn’t smoke, wink, wink) carried potent amounts of delta-9 THC. 

THC is a special cananbinoid. Like other cannabinoids, THC interacts with your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). This system is a network of receptors uniquely equipped to maintain balance within your mind and body. 

Other cannabinoids like cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabigerol (CBG) interact with these receptors and elicit non-intoxicating, therapeutic effects. THC, on the other hand, is the only cannabinoid to produce a psychoactive response in your ECS, creating cannabis’s notorious “high” sensation––uncontrollable giggles, munchies, heightened creativity, etc.

Here is where we get a little technical. It’s weed science, though––the field that matters most, right?

Along THC’s chemical structure, delta-9 THC is the most abundant molecule. Delta-9 THC is so abundant that when we talk about THC, we’re typically referring to delta-9 THC. But other naturally occurring THC molecules are along this chain, playing softly in the background; delta-8 THC is one of them. 

D8 Extraction

Hemp and cannabis plants naturally have low levels of delta-8 THC. Companies extract delta-8 THC by first extracting CBD from hemp plants. They then run these cannabinoids through a chemical process, whittling away unnecessary plant matter and bringing delta-8 THC into the chemical spotlight. The result is a honey-hued, viscous oil rich in delta-8 THC.

Types of Delta-8 THC Products

Companies take this delta-8-rich oil and infuse it into a variety of products. Each product filters through the body differently, creating various intensities and duration of effects. 

Delta 8 Vapes

Delta-8 vapes are pocket-sized vaporizers that produce a D8-rich vapor. Many companies pack two grams of vape liquid into their pens, lasting around 800 enjoyable puffs. 

When you inhale D8 smoke, the cannabinoids filter through your lungs, enter your bloodstream, and go on to engage your ECS receptors. All of this happens in seconds, causing a quick onset of effects. Compared to the other products listed below, effects from vapes set in the fastest.

But they also fade the fastest too. Because the cannabinoids process through the body more rapidly, their effects are immediate but short-lasting. 

Delta 8 Edibles

D8 edibles are also a popular way to enjoy delta-8 THC. Companies make edibles like gummies, brownies, cookies, and many more. Cannabinoids from edibles enter the bloodstream by way of your digestive tract. 

When you eat a D8 gummy, for instance, the cannabinoids travel along your digestive system, en route to your liver. Here, they absorb into the bloodstream and are ushered toward your ECS receptors, where they go on to create their patented euphoric effects. 

Unlike vapes, edibles take a while to absorb into the body, so their effects are more gradual. But because they take longer to process, edibles create longer-lasting effects––ones that can keep you feeling elevated for hours!

Delta 8 Tinctures

Delta-8 THC tinctures are psychotropic oils that go under your tongue. This is called sublingual administration. When you hold the D8 oil under your tongue for around a minute, the cells in your mouth absorb the cannabinoids and filter them directly into your bloodstream, leading to a quick onset of effects. 

These effects set in faster than edibles but slower than vapes. But, like with vapes, effects from tinctures don’t last as long as those from edibles. So, deciding between these products really comes down to own personal preference. 

Delta 8 Drinks

Another popular way many adults enjoy delta-8 THC is with D8 drinks like syrups and drink additives. These liquids are infused with D8-rich oil and come in various flavors. They process through the body like edibles, so their effects set in gradually and last longer than vapes or tinctures. 

Why Choose Delta-8?

So, why do many adults prefer D8 over other novel cannabinoids? It all boils down to delta-8’s subtle effects. For some, psychoactive compounds like delta-9 THC are a little too strong, requiring a microdose or a tiny puff of a D9 pen for a desired experience. 

The line between feeling too elevated and feeling “just right” is slim for these adults. So, it’s easy to overdo it and take too many gummies, inhale too much vapor, or gulp down too much syrup. 

Delta-8 THC, instead, creates effects that many say are weaker and less intense than its cannabinoid cousin, delta-9 THC. This could be advantageous for those with lower tolerances who just want to roll through their day with a minor buzz. 

Notable Delta 8 Brands

If you’re new to the world of delta-8 and novel cannabinoids, finding the best brands on the market is the first place to start. The best brands have a few things in common. They use high-quality hemp, CO2 extraction methods, and top-tier ingredients––and they prove it all with a Certificate of Analysis. This third-party lab result shows the complete list of ingredients and compounds inside a product. All the brands we carry routinely submit their products for lab testing, giving you an unprecedented layer of transparency.
