For those of us whose Delta 8 delivery preference is vaping, knowing how to store the vape carts is just as important as the vaping process itself.
It is important to know how to properly store the container (vape pen) and its content (e-juice) so as to avoid leakage, contamination, and a reduction in potency.
In this article, we want to explore some storage tips for Delta 8 vape carts. But before we do that, we’ll like to make a mention of the best Delta 8 carts that are there. Why? Because storage is not what guarantees the durability of a vape cart, it is the cart quality.
If you’ve bought a quality Delta 8 cart, then any storage measures you put in place will pay off nicely.
The best Delta 8 cartridges
- Finest Labs
- Delta Effex
When it comes to consuming cannabinoids, two things are important. One is the quality and potency of the cannabinoid, and the other is the safety of the compound. At Area52, these two factors are carefully considered in the formulation of their Delta 8 cart.
As far as quality and potency go, Area52 delivers the signature effects from the Pineapple Express strain, which is sourced from a unique blend of Delta-8 THC and exotic terpenes.
To prove that their Delta 8 products are safe, they provide batch-specific Certificates of Analysis (COA) for all their Delta 8 carts, which shows all the added terpenes, lab-certified extraction processes, and potential contaminants.
Each vape cart comes with 900 mg of Delta 8 locked within 1 ml of e-juice. So, you have enough hits to last a few days.
#2 Finest Labs
Finest Labs prides itself on the quality of its ingredients, and the distinctive effects of its products. Unlike most Delta 8 cart products that get you mildly intoxicated, excited, and geared up, Finest Labs’ products work in a slightly different manner. Instead of an uplifting effect, you get a calming effect; in place of excitement, you get physical relaxation.
The reason for these unique effects can be linked to Finest Labs’ Delta 8 carts coming in 500 mg of D8 in 1 ml of e-juice.
#3 Delta Effex
Delta Effex is your go-to guy if you’re looking for D8 varieties. Unlike Area52 and Finest Labs that have just one D8 variant in their lineup (Pineapple Express ad Blueberry respectively), Delta Effex comes in three different terpene-rich flavors namely Cali Orange Kush, Grand Daddy Purp, and Strawberry Cough.
To put it simply, there’s something for everyone in the Delta Effex D8 cart line. The Grand Daddy delivers a grape-like feeling in your mouth, the Cali Orange gives you a citrusy feeling, and the strawberry cough tastes exactly like strawberry.
Like Area52, Delta Effex’s products come in 900 mg of D8 in 1 ml of solution, too.
How to store Delta 8 vape cartridges
Unlike most unethical manufacturers that make vape carts out of plastic materials, all three manufacturers we mentioned above adopt the use of glass cells and pyrex in the manufacture of their vape carts. This is to avoid leakage as a result of constant shaking.
- Avoid direct contact with sunlight
From the point of usage to the point of storage, you want to ensure your cart is kept far away from coming in contact with sunlight.
If possible, vape in an enclosed area – inside your car, office, room, etc. – or before and after the sun is out.
Why? Because Delta 8 is a highly volatile compound. It’s even more volatile than most cannabinoids in the cannabis plant.
If there is direct exposure to the sun for too long, the content (Delta 8) might start to degrade gradually.
Your best bet is to keep your Delta 8 cart inside a jewelry box, behind your shelf, inside a drawer, or any other enclosed area.
- Avoid heat
Heat is another condition that can degrade the Delta 8 content of a vape cart and cause the cart to leak. If a vape cart is exposed to heat or kept in a place that’s hotter than 70 degrees Fahrenheit (above room temperature), the D8 content may start to discolor and the taste affected.
- Avoid chilly environments
Unlike heat, cold is actually not so damaging to Delta 8 carts. They can stay durable and okay even if exposed to cold weather.
However, the story changes when you keep them in refrigerators. The extreme cold conditions in refrigerators might cause moisture to form and condense into the D8, thus reducing the compound’s potency.
