Disposable delta 8 THC vape pens have appeared all over the U.S. and Canada recently under a brand called “Cake.” There’s a lot of uncertainty around this brand — there’s no website, no clear origin or manufacturer, and the branded packaging is sold in bulk on Alibaba and other wholesale platforms.

∆8-THC is moderately less potent than Δ9-THC (being ≈50-66% as potent in-vivo). This essentially means that it has properties similar to those of ∆9-THC, although to a lesser degree per milligram of material consumed. Delta-8-THC and delta-9-THC both contain a double bond in their molecular chain, but the location is different. Delta-8-THC has the bond in the 8th carbon chain while delta-9 contains it in the 9th carbon chain.
Although delta-8-THC functions similarly to delta-9 in many ways, it appears to be only two-thirds as psychoactive. This may be because it bonds differently to CB1, the cannabinoid receptor that regulates much of THC’s mind-altering effect. ∆8-THC may cause increased heart rate, reddening of the eyes, dizziness, dryness of the mouth and throat, paresthesia, tinnitus, increased body awareness, weakness, muscle tension or tremor, reduced motor coordination, fatigue, sleepiness, changes in visual perception, altered visual imagery, enhancement of colors or contrasts, time distortion, changes in auditory perception, euphoria, tranquility, relaxation, racing thoughts, dreamy introspective states, or difficulty in thinking, speaking, reading, or remembering.
A 1973 study testing the effects of ∆8-THC in dogs and monkeys reported that a single oral dose of 9,000 milligrams per kilogram of body mass (mg/kg) was nonlethal in all dogs and monkeys studied. The same study reported that the median lethal dose of ∆8-THC in rats was comparable to that of ∆9-THC. Both isomers of THC have been found to cause a transient increase in blood pressure in rats, though the effects of cannabinoids on the cardiovascular system are complex. Animal studies indicate that ∆8-THC exerts many of its central effects by binding to cannabinoid receptors found in various regions of the brain, including the cerebral cortex, thalamus, basal ganglia, hippocampus, and cerebellum.
