Delta-8 THC is taking the hemp industry by storm and its recent spike in popularity is reminiscent of the initial CBD craze. But there are stark differences between CBD and Delta-8 THC. For starters, the effects of Delta-8 THC are much more pronounced than CBD and any other cannabinoid. Although the effects of Delta-8 THC aren’t as strong as those offered by the more popular form of THC, Delta-9 THC.
Delta-8 THC only recently became legal in most US states after the 2018 Farm Bill. This explains the recent flood of new Delta-8 infused products and consumers ready to buy them right up.
But before you go diving in on Delta-8, we’d like to remind you that it’s essential that you do your due diligence before purchasing any products. Some helpful things to look for when shopping for Delta-8 is Certificates of Analysis (COAs), company reviews and company transparency. And as always, we recommend you consult with your doctor before you add any naturally occurring cannabinoid to your daily regimen, especially if you’re currently on any prescription medications.
We’ve taken the time to tell you more about our list of favorite Delta-8 THC vendors and their best products. Let’s get to it.
We see 3Chi as a clear market leader at the moment. They’re one of the early adopters and have paved the way ever since. 3Chi has all the most popular Delta-8 products such as: vapes, edibles, tinctures, concentrates and distillate. They also offer other minor cannabinoids such as CBN, CBG and CBC. 3Chi sells directly to consumers but also wholesale.
Our Favorite Products
Delta-8 THC Gummies – These are one of the best Delta-8 infused edibles on the market. They're perfect for newbies who are new to Delta-8 edibles or for anyone looking for an easy way to get a good dose of Delta-8. These have a total of 25mg of Delta-8 so if you're new it's probably best to start with a quarter or half a gummy.
Comfortably Numb Tincture – This is best used before bed as it contains roughly half Delta-8 THC and the other half being CBN. CBN is known for its relaxing, almost sleepy-like effects. Delta-8 and CBN are a match made in heaven.
Delta-8 Distillate Syringe – For those of you that aren’t familiar with Delta-8 distillate, it’s essentially a pure form of Delta-8. Distillate is typically 90-99% pure Delta-8. The most common ways to use distillate would be by consuming it orally or dabbing it. I like to buy distillate and make edibles such as brownies or cookies. Using distillate to make your own edibles can be a way to save as well.
Vape Whole Supply
Vape Whole Supply has taken the cannabinoid vape market to a whole new level. They're a marketplace for cannabinoid vapes which makes it easier for you to shop some of the best vapes available. Vape Whole Supply takes the time to research and vet each new company before they're allowed to sell on the Vape Whole Supply site. Vape Whole Supply sells a lot of Delta-8 THC vapes but they also offer alternative cannabinoid vapes such as CBN, CBC, CBD, CBG and THCV.
Our Favorite Products
Delta Farms Delta-8 THC Vape – These are somewhat of the standard when it comes to quality Delta-8 vapes. We like these vapes because they offer more of an upbeat type of feeling as opposed to a drowsy/relaxing effect.
Spensary/Lula CBD - THCV Vape - This THCV infused vape is the first of its kind. For those of you that aren’t familiar, THCV is an energizing cannabinoid that has a bright future. Although this vape has THCV, the majority of it is Delta-8 along with other cannabinoids to round off the full spectrum effect.
We’re a big fan of Snapdragon Hemp and have been following/buying their products for years. They’re a small business out of Chattanooga, Tennessee. Snapdragon is known for their innovative Delta-8 edibles. But edibles aren’t all they offer, their product line includes: vapes, tinctures, topicals and more.
Our Favorite Products
Delta-8 Infused Honey Sticks – This was one of the first Delta-8 infused edibles we’ve ever consumed and we’re still buying them today. If you’re new to Delta-8 edibles, we highly recommend starting with these honey sticks. Out of the 3 different options, we like Sweetened Indica for night and Mothers Honey for the day.
Delta-8 Infused Cookies – Yes, our second favorite product from Snapdragon is another edible. We really like Snapdragons edibles and for good reason. The Delta-8 Cookies pack a stronger punch than the Honey Sticks as each cookie comes with 30mg of Delta-8 THC. These make for a tasty treat after dinner.
Delta Effex is actually owned by Savage Enterprises which has been a popular vaping company for about 8 years now. More recently Savage Enterprises has focused more on the CBD space which naturally led to the creation of Delta Effex for a Delta-8 product line.
Our Favorite Products
Delta-8 THC Pods – We think these are a cool innovation and we haven’t seen any other vendors that sell anything like them. Delta Effex has created Delta-8 THC Pods which are similar to that of a Juul or any other disposable cartridge vape. You’ll need to buy the Effex battery once but after that you can buy the individual pods. These are perfect for anyone looking to vape Delta-8 discreetly.
Delta-8 THC Cartridge – We really like the Delta-8 THC Vape Cartridges from Delta Effex. They have great flavors and the effects are on point as well. Delta Effex cartridges are a little pricier when compared to other 1-gram Delta-8 vapes but we think it’s worth the extra few bucks for a quality vape.
Harbor City Hemp
Harbor City Hemp is a newer to the game but they’re gaining traction quickly in the Delta-8 community. They don’t offer a huge selection but they do a great job of offering a very competitive price for quality products. The two main type of products that Harbor City Hemp focuses on are tincture & cartridges.
Our Favorite Products
Tinctures – Tinctures from Harbor City Hemp are an absolute must. One of the main reasons why people like HCH’s tinctures so much is due to how incredibly affordable they are. You can get a 1,500mg Delta-8 THC Tincture for $40 which is just unheard-of. They even offer a 250mg for $12. These are perfect to test out for yourself or family and friends.
1g Delta-8 THC Cartridge – Our next favorite Harbor City Hemp product is their 1-gram Delta-8 THC Cartridge. They have a variety of different flavors based on cannabis derived terpene (CDT) blends. These various terpene blends add to the Delta-8 effects and they have different types for any occasion.
