Another year, another… year. That whole “time goes faster the older you get” thing is a ubiquitous adage of those over 40 for a reason. Enjoy your 20s and 30s, kids. It’s all downhill from there. 😉
Because I care about you and I want you to be happy, there’s only one thing I want for my birthday. You to get yourself something nice! And to do it using my Delta Extrax affiliate link!
Why?!? Fair question…
See, not everyone lives in a state that has legalized marijuana. And frankly, marijuana isn’t for everyone. Some people react badly to it, for whatever reason, and unpleasant side effects like paranoia and anxiety are not uncommon. It’s suspected those unpleasant side effects are caused by Delta-9 THC, which is the most prevalent psychoactive cannabinoid in marijuana plants. Delta-9 THC is also the specific chemical compound that is federally illegal.
Without getting too far into the weeds here, hemp and marijuana are both cannabis plants. In order to be classified as hemp, a given cannabis plant must contain 0.3% Delta-9 THC or less by weight. Thanks to the 2018 farm bill, cultivating, selling & possessing hemp and hemp-derived THC & CBD products is now federally legal. That’s not to say Delta Extrax’s products are legal in every state. Some states have specifically outlawed some or all hemp-derived THC products altogether. There’s a list of those states in their Shipping Policy.
I was also so impressed with their products, I decided to sign up for their affiliate program, so if you click on one of my affiliate links and buy something, I’ll make a couple bucks. Everybody wins!
What’s good? Glad you asked…
I’ve checked out several of their products at this point and there’s only one I truly disliked and wouldn’t use again. I intend to write more in-depth individual reviews of their products as I have the opportunity to try them, but here are some highlights:
This is the very first hemp-derived THC product I tried. Full disclosure: Despite having decades of extensive experience with marijuana, it had been well over a year since I’d consumed any THC. That said, this vape kicked my ass… in a good way. One rip and I was donezo for almost an hour. While I hadn’t consumed anything containing THC for some time, I’m no lightweight. I’ve never met anyone in my life that I can’t easily smoke under the table. And I do mean easily. My tolerance for THC, and cannabinoids in general, has always been somewhat extreme. So don’t yank this thing out of the box and take rip after rip right off the bat. That’s normally what I would have done and I’m glad I didn’t. Don’t say I didn’t warn ya! 😏
The flavor is very similar to what you’d expect from the Strawberry Kush marijuana strain; very prominent artificial strawberry flavor & aroma, with lingering hints of pine/earthiness. The effects are also similar to what you’d expect from its hybrid marijuana cousin; excellent relaxation, stopping well short of couch lock, and a sense of euphoria & cerebral invigoration that will allow you to remain on-task while tackling your to-do list.
I’m gonna be frank here: Edibles have never really been my thing. I either don’t feel much of anything at all or they knock me out cold. There doesn’t seem to be any in between for me, with the exception of one isolated incident involving brownies made by someone I didn’t know very well at a Super Bowl party years ago. And dosage seems to make little, if any, difference for me. Despite that, these are probably the most potent edibles I’ve ever had. And that includes commercially-produced marijuana-derived edibles.
The flavor can only be described as “grapey weed”. The hemp flavor definitely isn’t hidden by the berry flavor, but it is far from the worst tasting edible I’ve ever had. Even though edibles have never done much for me, I popped just half a gummy. Then I immediately cracked open the Strawberry Kush vape box and took my first hit from it. As I mentioned, one rip from that vape and I was lit. About an hour or so later, I ate the other half of the gummy and I took another rip off the vape. Within an hour (so about 2 hours after eating the first half of the gummy), I was totally couch locked. Someone could have lit my surroundings on fire and I’m not sure I’d have given a single damn. It was awesome. Was that mostly the gummy, mostly the vape or a “sum is more than the total of its parts” situation? I tend to think it’s the latter, but I’m not sure.
If there’s anything on your to-do list for the day, you should know this is not a wake & bake vape. If you do that, you won’t get anything done for the better part of the day. But if you’ve got a lazy Sunday and all you want to do is veg out in front of the TV, this might be the perfect choice for you. Otherwise reserve this one for when the sun goes down and your highly-functional human duties are done. You’ll be lucky to muster the will to even order a pizza after a few hits of this vape. Apropos of nothing, if you decide to cook something to curb your munchies instead of ordering in, set multiple timers. We don’t need to discuss how I know that. Just trust me.
I was super excited to try this flavor. I’m a big fan of vanilla… vanilla candles, vanilla incense, vanilla body spray, vanilla flavored anything, etc. When I venture out into the wild, it’s very common for me to hear a stranger say, “I smell cookies.” It’s the Vanilla Bean Noel body spray from Bath & Body Works, which is only available during the holidays. I stock up specifically so I can wear it year round. My best friend’s daughter calls it my signature scent. Ironically, vanilla isn’t my favorite flavor of ice cream. Go figure! Anyway… I was very much looking forward to trying this vape. I have to begrudgingly admit, I was a little disappointed. It doesn’t taste bad, by any means. It taste’s good. It’s just a little weak, flavor wise; not nearly as flavorful or vanilla forward as I was hoping. What it lacks in flavor, it more than makes up for in effects & potency.
Note: This vape started clogging significantly after a couple days of using it. Customer support tried to help me troubleshoot and solve the problem, to no avail. When it became obvious the clog was irrevocable, they sent me out a new one. I didn’t ask… they just sent it. That commitment to customer service is pretty uncommon these days and another reason I am a fan of Delta Extrax & their products.
First things first, unlike the other disposable vapes featured in this post, this one only contains 1 gram of distillate. The others contain 2 grams. Don’t look at the less expensive price and assume you’re getting a deal. You’re not. But even with only 1 gram of distillate, it’s worth every penny. This vape is a full-blown indica. I’d go so far as to say it’s an ideal example of the effects of an indica strain. Do everything you need to do before you sit down to take a rip. Go to the bathroom. Adjust the lights. Get yourself a drink & some snacks. Maybe go ahead & change into your pajamas. Let the dog out (let him back in BEFORE you take even one rip). You won’t be getting up for a while after a session with this vape. Couch lock is a massive understatement. Needless to say, if you have a job… responsibilities… plans… goals… ambitions… this is not a wake & bake or daytime vape. 😉
To say this vape has a berry flavor is really underplaying it. This thing is so pungently berry, it made my mailbox smell. It probably made the damn mail truck smell. The berry scent was so strong, I was sure I was going to open the package to find a leaking or broken vape tank. Nope. It’s just THAT overpoweringly berry. I like it. If you’re not a big fan of artificial berry flavor (think cherry, strawberry, blue raspberry Jolly Ranchers on steroids), this probably isn’t the vape for you. If you don’t mind the strong berry flavor, even if you don’t love it, it may be one of your best options for relaxation and/or sound sleep.
I didn’t love or hate this vape. I’ll probably try out a few more HHC products before I decide how I feel about them. Unlike the other vapes listed here, this one is created using extracts from the seeds & pollen of the hemp plant, rather than the flower, and it doesn’t contain detectable amounts of any form of THC, Delta-9 or otherwise. I don’t have enough experience with HHC alone to judge at this point, so I’ll reserve judgement for now. Would I buy this vape again? Yeah, probably… if it was on sale again (which is why I bought it in the first place).
The flavor is very citrus forward, but very mild. Nothing to write home about, but nothing to dislike about it either. It was on sale a couple weeks ago and you might want to try it out, especially if you can still pick it up for 50% off.
Full disclosure: I received this vape for free to review.
I have to be honest, I kinda hated it. And that “kinda” is doing a lot of heavy lifting. I sincerely hated it and would never buy it. The effects weren’t the problem. Those were fine, from what I can tell with such limited experience with non-THC hemp-derived substances. The experience was relatively analogous to the Super Glue HHC vape mentioned above.
The problem was flavor. It’s absolutely horrendous. I’ve never been a big fan of the “diesel” flavor present in some strains of cannabis, but they are typically tolerable when vaping or smoking flower. When it comes to this distillate, that’s not the case… at all. It was pretty disgusting, to be perfectly blunt. There were times it made me nearly gag and after too many hits of it, the nausea really began to set in. I’d never buy this… ever. But if you like that diesely flavor, this is definitely the vape for you. You won’t be disappointed with the flavor or effects. If not, avoid this thing like the smarmy creep who stands on the corner by Starbucks every morning.
I also received this vape for free to review. Fortunately, I really liked this one. I liked it a lot. The effects were exactly what you’d expect from a typical sativa: euphoric, uplifting, heady… a bit of body high, but this one is mostly cerebral. It’s a straight-up sativa… a perfect wake & bake vape, if that’s your thing. Since I’m usually intending to check out & shut down when I partake, I typically favor full-fledged indicas or indica hybrids, rather than sativas. That said, this is the best “get shit done” product I’ve tried from Delta Extrax so far. The effects reminded me somewhat of Green Crack, which is probably my all-time favorite sativa strain of marijuana. You’ll have no problems remaining focused or crossing tasks off your to-do list with this one.
Like Ice Cream Cookies, I was a bit disappointed that the flavor wasn’t stronger. It also varied from rip to rip, which seemed odd to me. Some hits were much more flavorful and orange-forward than others, which isn’t something I’d expect or even think possible when it comes to vaping distillate. While it may not have been as flavorful as I’d hoped, the flavor is still quite good, the effects more than make up for the lack of strong flavor, and I recommend you give this vape a try.
What’s next for me?
I’ve decided any affiliate commissions I earn from Delta Extrax will be reinvested into purchasing more hemp-derived THC products to feature in an upcoming review series. So, what’s on my “TO REVIEW” list? There’s no shortage of products that warrant evaluation.
Here’s a short list of products I find intriguing:
Don’t forget to check out the deals on their sale page! And since you’re my favorite people, you deserve to save a few bucks, so here are some coupon codes for you:
FIRST15 – 15% off your first order
FALL20 – 20% off an order of $100 or more
FALL25 – 25% off an order of $125 or more
FALL30 – 30% off an order of $175 or more
Right now they’re offering free shipping on orders of $50 or more, no coupon code required. I don’t know how long free shipping will last, so you should probably get on it. Their promo codes are typically pretty short lived and I’ve yet to see many expiration notices, so if you want to take advantage of their fall sale, I recommend placing your order ASAP.
One more thing… if you set up a Delta Extrax account, you’ll automatically be enrolled in their loyalty program. Compared to other loyalty programs that offer you mere pennies in discounts or special deals only on specific products you just know they’re trying to get rid of, members of the Delta Extrax loyalty program accrue points for every dollar spent and you can apply those points toward significant discounts on future orders anytime. Pretty sweet.
What the hell are you waiting for?!?
