Discoveries. It’s the beautiful part of this thing called “Life”. In fact, the only way to truly live and find out who you are is through search and discovery. That’s what we’re talking about this week, sorta. I guess, the topic today is “Discovery”. The buss recently has been around Delta-8. Sound familiar? Or am I a number off? I might be thinking about Delta-9. Nope, I’m right, it’s Delta-8. While similar in it’s effects, it’s still slightly different. It is still new to me and I myself am still learning. Luckily, I’m not alone and neither are you! I’m going to break down this awesome cannabinoid, how to use it and where it can be found throughout the Tarheel State. Let’s check it out!
You’ve seen it and probably heard everyone mentioning, right? It’s nothing new, at least to the science scene. The Science community discovered this cannabinoid many years ago and while it’s atomic structure is similar, many describe this as the “functional” cannabinoid. Don’t get me wrong, you will still get the intoxicating effect just like you get from Delta-9 it’s just a tad less of it. To me, that’s a good thing. This allows for a productive day. I’m not saying you are productive by any means but you’re not couch locked I guess is what I mean. Since Delta-8 is similar to Delta-9, it also bonds to the same receptors in the nervous system, CB1 and CB2. Advancements in technology have allowed for such discoveries and innovations in the industry have made all this possible for extractors and shop owners to bring these beauties to you! I’m pleased to show you guys who has some great tinctures and cartridges throughout the Carolina’s. Some of these farms and shops are even getting a nice spot to call home in our “Hometown Heroes” section!
First up on we got tinctures. I don’t give these the credit they deserve. They often go unnoticed by me and many others. Overlooking a tiny bottle with huge benefits might have you taking a second glance or a trip back to the store on this one. The Hemp Store in Raleigh has our back on this one if you do need to take that trip. Of course Delta-8 isn’t the only thing they have however it is a new addition to a long list of products they keep on hand when you find yourself swaying off the path. Tinctures, cartridges coming soon, there’s something for everyone should you decide to try it. Tinctures are perfect for those who don’t smoke or simply just can’t. Tinctures can be added to your favorite food, juices, coffee etc and The Hemp company has these in two strengths, 750mg and 1500mg. When it comes to tinctures and oils. Remember, less is more so always start small and work your way up. At the end of the day, only you know what works. Currently, The Hemp Company is offering curbside service which is great for those who want to be safe. With Delta-8 being so popular, these are flying off the shelf. I can’t wait to see what other options start popping up including Delta-8, in the meantime I’m going to show you guys how to get the most out of those tinctures. Check our path to wellness section for great posts on that as well as our hometown heroes section for more on The Hemp Company!
You got your battery? Well have a toke and blow some smoke bud! That’s right, we got carts! Next up, I’m going to mention quite a few shops and farms with cartridges when it comes to Delta-8. In addition to The Hemp Company, there are a few shops and farms around the Tarheel State and the country who are gearing up with Delta-8 cartridges. One of those shops you have come to know and love sits right here in my hometown. That’s right, The Gypsy Wagon! The ladies over there have began stocking the shelves with some great oils and cartridges with terpene infused, Delta-8. That’s not the only shop out here giving us some great things! The folks at NorthCarolindica are also offering Delta-8 cartridges which can be found on their website here and I am pleased to announced they will be rolling out a line of tinctures soon! Cartridges are great because they offer portability among other things. I know some of you, myself included, who enjoy puffing some terpy derps. I love packing carts away in my happy kits when I go hiking or any outing for that matter. Now that we have Delta-8 on the scene, it makes those hikes even more enjoyable.
Strains are important. Different strains house different terpenes which are present at various levels. One strain might contain more Myrcene so it can be good to formulate a cartridge or tincture with. That’s where Reliv Organix CBD comes in. The awesome people over there are offering Delta-8 cartridges in multiple strains catered to you. From Watermelon OG, Strawberry Lemonade down to Pineapple Express with more options sure to come. I’m loving the options so far because each strain is different. Depending on what you’re on the hunt for, Reliv Organix may have it. Pineapple Express is a great daytime cartridge to puff with hints of mangoes thanks to those terpenes present such as Myrcene. Be expecting a relaxing feeling should you decide to go crazy with that one. Watermelon OG on the hand is going to be your bedtime friend. Leaning on the Indica varietal side thanks to its OG Kush parent, it’s going have some sedating effects so it’s good for nighttime use. Keep your battery handy or, if you’re not set up yet, you grab a CCELL battery from them before checking or just pick up a disposable. Between you and me, I recommend the battery if you’re going to be using cartridges often. It would be a good investment if you don’t already have one.
It’s nice to see this hit the scene out here. While not new, it’s new to me, you and well, everyone and quite healthful I might add. Between it’s neuroprotective properties, appetite stimulant and uplifting effects, Delta-8 has many benefits. It’s great farmers, extractors and shop owners are able to offer it. Many of you, including me can get many uses and benefits from a little extra THC with our CBD so this really helps, especially if you’re infusing certain foods or juices to help with certain illnesses you may have. Have you tried Delta-8 yet? Let me know below? Thanks for reading as always. I love you guys. Until next time, stay medicated, stay safe and relax, it’s natural! 💚🤟🏼
