Interested in Delta 9 Disposable Pens? Here’s What You Should Know

Of the various methods you can enjoy cannabis these days, vaporizing is one of the most popular. While it is true that vaping is highly convenient and discreet, particularly when you are on the go, this method also allows producers of cannabis oils to apply strain and terpene infusions, thus coming up with a nice variety of blends of various flavor profiles and potency levels.

Within the vaporizing category, you are bound to see Delta 9 disposable pens offered along with others that are labeled Delta 8 and Delta 10. If you are wondering what those different Deltas are all about, the first thing you should know is that most disposable cannabis pens on the market are Delta 9, which means that their main psychoactive ingredient is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), a historically predominant compound in many cannabis strains. The designation refers to the molecule structure and relative potency; for example, Delta 8 is less potent than Delta 9, and Delta 10 is even milder than both.

In the way that cannabis plants have been crossbred for thousands of years, the Delta 9 THC content in the flowering buds of most strains is around 3% to 30%. Delta 8 occurs naturally in smaller amounts, usually less than 1% in the plant, and it is more abundant in strains with a high CBD content. The concentration of Delta 10 THC is the lowest in all the known strains.

At cannabis dispensaries where recreational sales are legal, you may see some Delta 9 disposable pens labeled as such, but most will not bear this distinction unless they are made with Delta 8 or Delta 10 extracts.
