Vape Carts vs. Disposable Vapes: What’s Best for Delta-8?
The news is out: If you want to have the best possible experience with Delta-8, you definitely want to vape it. Vaping is the fastest way to get any substance into your system. Compounds are also more bioavailable when you inhale them instead of taking them orally, which means that you can get the same effect while using less material – in other words, vaping costs less in the long run than oral products like Delta-8 gummies and tinctures.
If you want to vape Delta-8, though, you’ve got to choose the right type of product for your needs – and that can be a bit of a challenge given the wide variety of Delta-8 products on the market today. In this article, we’re going to help you make the right choice for your needs by discussing the two most popular types of Delta-8 vaping products: pre-filled vape carts and disposable vapes. Although there’s certainly no harm in trying both types of products, you’ll have a much better experience if the first one that you select is perfect for you. Let’s make sure that happens.
Delta-8 Vape Carts
A Delta-8 vape cart is a single-use vape cartridge pre-filled with about 1 ml of Delta-8 distillate. Since the cartridge is already filled, you don’t need to do anything in order to begin using it – you can just connect it to a 510-thread battery and start vaping. You’ll use the cartridge until it’s empty, and then you’ll throw it away.
What Are the Benefits of Delta-8 Vape Carts?
The main benefit of Delta-8 vape carts is that they aren’t as wasteful as disposable vapes. When a disposable vape runs out of Delta-8 distillate or battery power, you throw the entire device away. Although a Delta-8 disposable vape contains enough distillate to last through several lengthy vaping sessions, using disposable vapes still contributes to a large amount of landfill waste over time. With vape carts, on the other hand, the cartridge is the only thing that gets thrown away. You keep the vaping device and can continue using it indefinitely until the battery eventually stops holding a charge.
Although there’s usually no difference in potency between Delta-8 vape carts and disposable vapes, a vape cartridge can still potentially give you a more intense experience because vape carts often have more efficient atomizer coils than disposable vapes and can therefore produce bigger clouds. In addition, you can push some vape cartridges even further if you use a 510 vape battery with adjustable voltage or wattage.
What Are the Drawbacks of Delta-8 Vape Carts?
The one drawback of Delta-8 vape carts compared to disposable vapes is that they’re a bit more likely to leak. Some people have even reported buying Delta-8 cartridges that had already begun to leak before they were even removed from their packages. To minimize the chance of leaking, it’s important for Delta-8 brands to buy their empty cartridges from top-quality suppliers. With experience, you’ll learn what the most reliable brands are.
Delta-8 Disposable Vapes
Like Delta-8 vape cartridges, disposable vapes are pre-filled with distillate and ready to use right away. The difference, though, is that you don’t need to provide your own vaping device because a disposable vape is a fully functional device including its own charged battery. You can remove a Delta-8 disposable vape from the package and start using it immediately. When the device’s light starts blinking, the battery is dead. At that point, you’ll throw it away.
What Are the Benefits of Delta-8 Disposable Vapes?
The biggest benefit of Delta-8 disposable vapes is convenience. Disposable vapes might be perfect for you if you don’t want to deal with the maintenance aspects of owning a full-fledged vaping device. If you use a 510 vape pen, you need to maintain it by keeping the battery charged and cleaning the device periodically. A disposable vape, on the other hand, requires no maintenance at all. The battery isn’t chargeable, and the device doesn’t last long enough to require cleaning.
If you’ve never vaped Delta-8 before and aren’t sure if it’s something you’re going to continue doing, buying a disposable vape is a great way to start because it allows you to experience Delta-8 without investing in a full vape kit. If you’re reluctant about buying a vape pen because you’re afraid that you’ll only use it once, a disposable vape is a great alternative. You can always buy a 510 battery and switch to pre-filled cartridges later.
What Are the Drawbacks of Delta-8 Disposable Vapes?
Convenience always has a price – and with disposable vapes, the price is actually fairly steep. Using a vaping device that can’t be refilled or recharged means that you’ll throw the entire device away when it runs out of distillate or battery power. You might not think that your personal trash makes much of a difference in the condition of your local environment – but imagine all of the other disposable vapes that are also being thrown away every day around the world. Put together, those devices add up to a fairly enormous number of batteries and circuit boards that will eventually contribute to groundwater pollution. Many people have no real alternative but to throw the devices away, though, because few recycling centers will accept Delta-8 disposable vapes. Delta-8 cartridges, in comparison, are much less wasteful and don’t contain lithium or other heavy metals.
The other major drawback of Delta-8 disposable vapes compared to pre-filled cartridges is that they’re expensive. When you buy a Delta-8 disposable vape, you aren’t just buying the Delta-8 distillate – you’re also buying a circuit board, integrated circuits and a battery. Those components are expensive, and you have to buy all of them every time you get a new disposable vape. If you buy a new device every few days, the costs can really start to add up. Delta-8 cartridges typically cost less than disposable vapes. You’ll also need to buy a 510 vape pen, but those are generally inexpensive and can last a long time. Over time, you’ll spend significantly less if you use Delta-8 cartridges rather than disposable vapes.
