There are at least 20 known forms of delta-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in cannabis. Eighteen of these are delta 9 types, while the remaining two are delta 8. Delta 9 THC is the type strictly regulated under law, while delta 8 is legal in many places in the US.
For those reasons, vaping with a disposable delta 8 pen is legal so long as its THC content is 0.3% or less.
So, how exactly does a disposable delta 8 vape pen work? How do you use and dispose of these devices?
This guide will walk you through what you need to know, so be sure to read on.
What Is a Disposable Delta 8 Pen?
A disposable delta 8 vape pen is a ready-to-use, pre-assembled disposable device. Most of these pens feature pre-charged batteries, so there’s no need for users to plug them in before use. Some also come pre-filled with a delta 8 distillate or oil cartridge, so users can vape them straight out of the box.
How Do You Use These Disposable Pens?
First, know that both disposable and rechargeable pens have at least three main parts.
The mouthpiece, also called the drip tip, is the part that meets your lips. It’s the side you actually vape from. When you first use a disposable pen, you only need to take a puff from this end to activate the device.
The body is usually the largest component, as it houses the pen’s battery and atomizer. Today, you’ll find disposable vape pens that also have a short-term rechargeable battery. Aire Hemp, Cake, and Delta Effex are some brands that come with such batteries.
The third component is the cartridge, which houses the hemp-derived delta 8 concentrates. Once you inhale, the draw-activated pen heats the derivative. This heating process vaporizes the delta 8, which may be better than burning it.
Why Do Some Disposables Use Rechargeable Batteries Then?
How long a disposable vape varies based on its volume capacity and the user’s vaping behavior. Either way, manufacturers design the batteries to last for as long as their delta 8 content. However, some folks may take smaller puffs, so the pre-charged battery may run out before the delta 8 does.
That’s why some disposable vape pens allow for short-term battery life extension. However, they don’t use pricey lithium-ion batteries, which are for longer-term use.
As such, you can usually recharge disposable pens at least once via a USB cable. That’s often enough to finish the pens’ contents.
How Do You Dispose of Vape Pens Properly?
Keep in mind that there are strict federal, state, and municipal laws on battery disposal. After all, folks in the US alone purchase and use millions of batteries each year.
You can dispose of rechargeable disposable vape pens the same way as electronics. Your first option is to bring these disposable devices to an electronics recycler. You can also have a local household hazardous waste collection service pick them up for you.
Try Delta 8 with a Disposable Pen
A disposable delta 8 pen is a good choice if you want to try out vaping delta 8 for the first time. It’s also a lower-cost alternative to standard rechargeable vapes. So, if you want to get a quick, safe buzz for less, consider using a disposable vaporizer first.
