Here are the best delta-8 THC carts we recommend after considering 36 popular brands.
The rising popularity of Delta-8 THC, the cannabinoid, not to be confused with the Delta Covid variant, continues to sweep the nation. After testing seven of the best Delta-8 THC carts currently available, some of the research has me feeling like maybe the Delta Covid variant isn’t the most dangerous Delta around.
These are the best delta-8 THC cartridges we tested and recommend, ranked in order:
- Plain Jane
- Secret Nature
- Botany Farms
- Delta Extrax
- Elyxr LA
The Delta-8 craze currently rippling through the cannabis community has similar vibes to the early Four Loko days, a time when we were consuming something totally legal but deep down all questioned that legality.
Delta-8 THC, being a hemp derivative, falls under the protection of the 2018 Farmers Bill and remains mostly legal, despite having psychoactive effects that can mimic a marijuana high. This legal loophole helped hold the floodgates open and now Delta-8 products spill into the market at an alarming rate, each one trying to capitalize on a rapidly growing market. With this desire to quickly meet a growing demand, corners can be cut and it’s important to do your own research on the quality of the products you’re consuming.
Vape cartridges, if we’re putting them up against flower or edibles, tend to be some of the most scrutinized on the market for their quality and contents. Fully knowing what’s inside your vape cartridge can often feel like guessing how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie-pop. The world, and us, may never know.
That’s why, when asked to review and rank some of the most popular Delta-8 THC vape cartridges currently available, quality certifications and lab results factored heavily into the ranking system. At the end of the day, sustained health will always beat a quick high.
36 Delta-8 carts were considered for this list. After contacting the companies and being sent products, we narrowed it down to seven different vape cartridges to test.
Over the course of the past two weeks I’ve researched, sampled and re-sampled all seven of these products. Each company’s quality and lab tested COA (certificate of analysis) factored heavily into the ranking, while effectiveness, flavor and value rounded out the grading scale.
Based on looks alone, I was shocked that D8.com came out as the top brand. But sometimes you can’t judge a book by its plain cardboard cover.
