Delta-8-THC products are making a big stir in America’s legal hemp scene. This is especially thanks to brands like 3Chi, which is making an impressive range of premium products.
3Chi is an American company manufacturing hemp-based products, with a focus on niche cannabinoids, such as delta-8-THC. 3Chi’s collection consists of vape cartridges, distillate syringes, gummies, tincture oils and more. In addition to delta-8-THC, 3Chi also makes CBD, CBC, CBG and CBN products.
Want to find more about the 3Chi experience, and what delta-8-THC could do for you? In this guide, we look at the general effects of delta-8-THC, and the specific benefits offered by each of 3Chi’s products.
What is delta-8-THC?
Essentially, delta-8-THC is the legal version of the better-known and, mostly illegal, psychoactive delta-9-THC. Legal delta-8-THC is mildly psychoactive, and appears to be taken mostly for recreational reasons. That said, like regular THC, delta-8-THC may also some therapeutic benefits.
You are probably wondering why delta-8-THC legal, since it’s similar to THC and you can get high from it. This all comes down to a legal loophole. When the US federal government legalized hemp, the only restriction was that products must have less than 0.3% delta-9-THC. The law didn’t mention delta-8-THC at all, hence why companies like 3Chi are able to legally manufacture products rich in this cannabinoid.
Delta-8-THC products may be new, but 3Chi already stocks a broad collection, ensuring there is something for everybody. As with CBD, there are numerous ways of consuming delta-8-THC, each of which produces slightly different effects.
Delta-8-THC Vape Cartridges
There’s no quicker way of getting cannabinoids into the body than vaping, and 3Chi’s delta-8-THC vape cartridges deliver an efficient and convenient experience. These cartridges are available in two sizes – 0.5ml and 1ml – and consist of 475mg or 950mg delta-8-THC. Therefore, the e-liquid used by 3Chi has an impressive 95% purity.
3Chi stocks a huge selection of delta-8-THC vape cartridges, from sativas, to indicas, to hybrids. Popular strains available include Blue Dream, Gelato, Granddaddy Purple, Jack Herer, OG Kush and Pineapple Express.
Delta-8-THC Distillate Syringes
3Chi’s distillate syringes are remarkably pure, boasting a whopping 91 to 99% delta-8-THC purity, and a 99.5% total cannabinoid concentration. Distillate syringes are perfect if you want a high-strength and versatile experience – distillates can be dabbed, eaten and vaporized!
Each syringe contains 1ml of distillate, and a minimum of 910mg delta-8-THC. The product comes with a 0.5-inch, 14-gauge tip for dispensing the distillate. 3Chi recommends a dosage between 5 to 20mg. First-time users should begin with caution. If the distillate hardens, the syringe can be soaked in a water bath, or heated with a hairdryer. This product should never be used for bodily injection.
3Chi’s lab-tested delta-8-THC gummies are ideal if you want a longer-lasting high. Cannabinoids from gummies do not take effect immediately but are active for several hours longer in edible form than when vaporized.
Each gummy contains 25mg of delta-8-THC and are available in packs of 8 and 16. These edibles have a black raspberry flavoring, and 3Chi suggests taking them alongside a meal for best effect.
3Chi does warn that since the gummies are not heat-resistant, they could melt into one. While this does not affect the potency of the delta-8-THC, this does make it more difficult to dose with accuracy and consistency.
Delta-8-THC Tincture Oils
In general, tincture oils are the first choice for people who need fast-acting effects, but don’t want to risk their lungs by vaping. That’s a key selling point for 3Chi’s delta-8-tincture oils, along with the fact that tinctures can be taken under the tongue, with food, and even applied on the skin.
3Chi’s Delta-8-THC tincture is made with a broad-spectrum hemp extract, and hence has a full array of cannabinoids and terpenes. This tincture is infused with medium-chained triglyceride (MCT) oil, which enhances the potency of the product. 3Chi notes that this tincture oil should not be used in a vaporizer.
Delta-8-THC and CBN Tincture Oils
3Chi also makes a tincture oil comprising of delta-8-THC and CBN. Cannabinol (CBN) is a non-intoxicating, therapeutic cannabinoid, which may help to improve sleep quality and reduce inflammation. No surprise then that 3Chi has chosen to call this tincture oil “Comfortably Numb”.
This oil contains a 1:1 ratio of delta-8-THC and CBN, and is sold in three strengths: 300mg, 600mg and 1200mg. The tincture is also infused with beta-caryophyllene, a calming, peppery terpene that has sedative and anti-inflammatory qualities.
This is a great product if you want a more controlled high and increased relaxing effects. We recommend taking this oil in the evenings, when you are best placed to enjoy the mentally and physically soothing effects.
Delta-8-THC and CBN Vape Cartridges
Delta-8-THC and CBN come together once again in these 3Chi vape cartridges. As with the tinctures, these vape cartridges are focused on maximizing relaxation and delivering a less intense high, with enhanced therapeutic effects.
Part of 3Chi’s “Comfortably Numb” line, each cartridge contains 40% delta-8-THC, 40% CBN, in addition to 10% cannabichromene (CBC), 2% cannabidiol (CBD), and a smattering of tasty Strawberry Napalm terpenes. These vape cartridges are sold in two sizes: 0.5ml and 1ml.
3Chi promises that users will be enjoying the relaxing effects just “20 minutes after a puff or two”. However, they do note that vaporized CBN is not effective for around one-third of users.
Bulk Delta-8-THC Oil (Premium Grade)
Interested in selling delta-8-THC products yourself? Then 3Chi’s Premium Grade oil is a fantastic choice. Buying in bulk is a great way to get more stock for less, and 3Chi can produce as much as you need, and blend in whatever terpenes you like.
This oil has been lab-tested by Desert Valley Testing and contains between 94 to 99% delta-8-THC, and a 99.5% total cannabinoid content. There is no delta-9-THC int this product.
Bulk Delta-8-THC Oil (Lab Grade: 70 to 93%)
3Chi also manufactures a lab grade delta-8-THC oil, available for bulk purchase. This oil has between 70 to 93% delta-8-THC and is suggested for those who want to conduct the refining process themselves. 3Chi advises against consuming this oil in its current form, as the lab-testing does not account for all of the compounds present. This bulk oil is only good if you want to make your own delta-8-THC products.
So, there you have it. We’re mighty impressed with the 3Chi Delta-8-THC collection, and the number of high-quality products they have already brought to market. Every product has been lab-tested, so you can be sure it’s up to scratch, which is always important in an emerging and unregulated industry!
