How To Vape Delta 8 Disposables Like A Pro

Vaping Delta 8 is a lot different from vaping nicotine. For example, disposable devices use a low wattage to avoid burning the THC; this means you probably won’t blow fat clouds. In addition, there are some significant differences between smoking THC and vaping. In this blog, we cover some of the basics to help you vape Delta 8 disposables like a pro!

How Long Should You Hit A Delta-8 Vape?

Hitting a Delta 8 vape or drawing from the device should take 3 - 5 seconds. If you’re used to smoking cannabis, you might be tempted to take it to head. In other words, you might want to chief it, but there is no need for that.

Unlike cannabis or nicotine, taking long, drawn-out hits won’t make you any higher or give you the ability to blow fat clouds. On the contrary, it might make you start to cough or irritate your lungs. You’re paying good money for your Delta 8 disposable, and we recommend you enjoy it.

Blinker Challenges

If you’re unfamiliar with the term “Blinker Challenge” we’ll catch you up to speed. A Blinker Challenge is when you take a long, drawn-out hit off a THC device in hopes of making the light blink.

People typically take a draw between 8 - 10 seconds or until the charging light begins to blink. There is no point in hitting a Blinker besides showing how much you can inhale and internet clout. However, we haven’t discovered any negative health issues besides coughing and lung irritation.

How Many Times Should You Hit A Delta-8 Pen

We recommend you take one hit every 15 minutes. However, this depends on many factors, such as your tolerance and experience with THC.


If you’re brand new to the world of THC or have a low tolerance, we recommend hitting the pen once and waiting about 15 minutes. This is to ensure that you don’t take too much. Although you may not necessarily feel a head change with one hit, it’s better to be safe than sorry.

An important thing to consider is the type of cannabinoids in the Disposable. Cannabinoids like THC-P Disposables tend to be more potent when compared to Delta 8. The reason is that your body tends to absorb more of certain cannabinoids making for a stronger high.

When we say experienced, we’re referring to someone generally used to THC. Howbeit, you have experience using cannabis products or have a naturally high tolerance to THC. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you have experience with Delta 8 products.

For a person with experience, we recommend starting with 2 - 3 draws and then waiting 15 minutes. Keep repeating this process until you’ve reached your desired head change. Once you’re good, try and save the rest for the next session.

Do You Hold In Delta-8 Vape Smoke

You might be tempted to hold in the Delta 8 vape as you would smoke. However, when you’re vaping THC, this is not necessary. The idea of holding in smoke is to allow it to be absorbed by your body the longer it’s in your lungs. However, this often leads to coughing or irritated lungs.

How Long Should You Hold In THC Vape

You might feel more comfortable holding in the THC vape. If this is you, then we recommend between 3 - 5 seconds. Once you’ve inhaled enough, you will slowly want to exhale.

What Vaping THC, Nicotine, and smoking cannabis all have in common is that you inhale all of them the same. However, vaping tends to be much cleaner and is not prone to as much lung irritation as when you hold in smoke.

Is Holding in Delta 8 Vape Smoke Bad?

It’s not bad to hold in your Delta 8 vapor, but we don’t recommend it because it can irritate your lungs. Also, holding anything in for too long can make you have a coughing fit. Therefore, we recommend not holding it for a long time for you to have a pleasant experience.

One thing to remember is that you might read somewhere else that it’s recommended to hold your THC vape. Everyone has their rituals and logic as to why they do certain things. However, we’re not doubting that it might make you slightly less high, but the question is if having a coughing fit and lung irritation worth it.

The Difference Between Smoking and Vaping THC

The major difference between smoking and vaping your THC is that vaping is not producing any smoke. Instead, the THC distillate is heated, which causes the vapor to enter your lungs. It’s very similar to vaping nicotine, except that the THC distillate is a lot more delicate and should be vaped at low temperatures.

Conversely, smoking is meant to be burnt up so that THC enters your lungs through the smoke it produces. However, unlike vaping, you get way more chemicals than just THC and Terpenes. This can cause longer-term lung irritation, chronic cough, and other negative side effects.
