Are CBD vapes safe?
Cannabis vaping is not considered a particularly safe method of consumption. Despite this, CBD vapes have become popular recently. They work rather fast: you can feel the effects of CBD almost immediately. You can consume CBD via a vape pen, vape oil, or vape cartridges and you’ll get faster results than with a gummy.
However, inhaling CBD is far from the healthiest way to consume CBD. Vape cartridges can be difficult to dose and you never know the exact amount of CBD you’re getting. Plus, their effects are way too short compared to CBD gummies.
There are many other safer ways to get your dose of cannabidiol other than vaping.
Our CBD gummies. They offer a safe and controlled method of consumption not only CBD but other cannabinoids, as well. You never have to worry about overconsuming with these badass vegan, hemp-derived edibles.
What is HHC?
Hexahydrocannabinol (HHC) is a minor cannabinoid occurring in small quantities in the cannabis plant. Commercial HHC is chemically made from hemp-derived CBD.
HHC is considered THC’s close relative as both compounds produce similar effects. Users describe the HHC “high” as being something between Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC but less potent and less psychoactive. They report many similar effects to delta-9 thc: paranoia, sedation, dry mouth, red eyes, increased anxiety, and the munchies.
The most popular way to consume it is with HHC vape cartridges, gummies, and other HHC products. HHC gummies are federally legal, since they are derived from hemp and not technically THC. Yet, some experts remain skeptical about HHC legality.
HHC vs HHC-O
Let’s meet another cousin in the family: HHC acetate or HHC-O. To make HHC-O products, producers add acetic anhydride to HHC molecules. This increases their potency: manufacturers report that HHC-O can be as three times as strong as HHC.
What is THCV?
Tetrahydrocannabivarin, or THCV, is a compound from the cannabis plant. It offers a unique array of effects and benefits a bit different from other cannabinoids like Delta-9 THC and CBD.
THCV has a similar molecular structure and psychoactive properties to THC. Unlike its big cousins THC and CBD, THCV suppresses appetite. This may be useful to cannabis users who are focused on weight loss, but should be avoided altogether if you’re suffering from appetite loss or anorexia.
THCV products are great if you're diabetic. Some research shows promising results in THCV’s ability to regulate blood level sugars. It seems that this minor cannabinoid has therapeutic benefits on our mental health, as well. Many people take THCV gummies as a way to treat anxiety, panic disorder, and PTSD.
What does the entourage effect feel like?
You can’t really feel the entourage effect at work. The entourage effect refers to the longer-term benefits you get from combining multiple cannabinoids, as opposed to any immediate psychological effect you might notice.
The best way to start feeling the benefits of the entourage effect is after at least a month of continual use of cannabis microdosing products. If you experience improvement in mood and focus, if you sleep better or feel much less stressed out or anxious, congratulations—you’re experiencing the entourage effect.
Is Delta-9 stronger than Delta-8?
Delta 9 produces stronger effects than Delta-8 THC. According to a study on consumer experiences with Delta 8, its effects are milder and less psychoactive than Delta 9’s.
Researchers at the University of Buffalo found that Delta-8 gummies cause feelings of relaxation and pain relief—without interfering with the users’ ability to perform daily activities. That’s a great reason to add Delta-8 THC products—like our Elevate Gummies—to your microdosing routine.
There are ways in which Delta 9 and Delta 8 products differ—like their potency—so make sure to inform yourself before making a decision to purchase.
Is CBD legal?
The 2018 Farm Bill differentiates hemp from the legal definition of marijuana in the Controlled Substances Act. This made CBD products—like our CBD gummies for sleep—federally legal if derived from hemp and containing no more than 0.3% THC.
Do edibles show up in a drug test?
Delta-9 products can cause positive test results. THC can be detected by a drug test for several days after consumption. The chemicals absorbed from the cannabis edibles may be lower than with inhaled cannabis. The length of detection depends on the type of test.
Urine drug test shows traces of cannabis from 1-5 days. This method is mostly used to detect Delta-9 THC. Using a hair drug test, the effects of cannabis can show in your system for up to 90 days.
Other factors should be also taken into consideration, like:
- The potency of THC in the edibles
- The user's metabolism and cannabis tolerance
- The user's level of hydration
- The frequency of usage
