Delta 8 THC Cart- Bubba Kush
Combining an earthy flavor with notes of coffee and chocolate, Bubba Kush is an indica-dominant hybrid with powerful stress-relieving and tranquilizing effects. It’s the perfect way to conquer sleeplessness, anxiety, muscle soreness, and headaches.
The strain itself dates back to the mid 1990s, when a California grower crossed OG Kush with an unknown indica to develop a powerfully sedative kind of cannabis. It’s become well-known for its purple coloring, relaxing effects, and rich terpene profile that can add hints of fruit flavors. In its CBD form, Bubba Kush has elevated levels of terpenes that give it a rich aroma and top-notch calming effects.
The Bubba Kush cart is composed of 93% Delta 8 THC distillate and 7% organic steam-derived hemp terpenes. The result is a natural, soothing product made with no cutting agents — only hemp. The most abundant terpene in the strain is caryophyllene, which is also commonly found in black pepper, hops, cloves, and cinnamon. Caryophyllene contributes to Bubba Kush’s earthy base notes, while other terpenes like D-limonene and a-Humulene provide the lighter hints of fruit that can leave a sweeter aftertaste on exhale.
What is Delta 8 THC?
The psychoactive ingredient in Bubba Kush is Delta 8 THC or tetrahydrocannabinol, a less-potent cousin of the Delta 9 THC found in regular marijuana plants. Delta 8 THC causes similar effects to Delta 9, but on a smaller scale and is about 2/3 as potent.
So, while much Delta 8 shares most of its makeup and origin with Delta 9 THC, there are some key differences. At the molecular level, the structures of both Delta 8 and 9 are similar. And Delta 8 carts affect the brain and body in much the same ways as regular THC does — just at a lower level. But perhaps the most crucial difference between the two molecules is availability. Because the active ingredient in Delta 8 THC carts is made from CBD, Delta 8 products have an expanded scope of legality. Most states in the union allow the sale of a Delta cartridge under the same guidelines that legalize the sale of all CBD products. Buying Delta 9 THC for recreational use may be legal in only 15 states, but Delta 8 can be sold legitimately in 38.
Does Delta 8 Get You High?
If Delta 8 THC connects with the human endocannabinoid system in the same way as its more potent cousin, Delta 9 THC, does that mean it gets users high?
In short, yes. Using a Delta 8 cartridge in your vape will produce the same effects as a regular high — just not as much. Think of like the difference between a cup of tea and a Red Bull. Both give drinkers a stimulating jolt of caffeine, but Red Bull delivers a stronger dose. In much the same way, Delta 8 THC products can provide the same euphoric feelings, pain relief, and psychoactive effects as regular marijuana, but with the volume turned down. It’s a high that’s not quite as high.
For some consumers, that might be a plus. Users who are new to cannabis can use Delta 8 THC as a starting point before diving into more potent products. And medical cannabis patients who have strong reactions to common marijuana varieties might opt for Delta 8 products as a way to access some of the therapeutic effects of THC without risking going overboard.
Like other products made of CBD, many Delta 8 carts and flower contain trace amounts of Delta 9 THC. Luckily, every batch of Bubba Kush Delta cart is triple tested to ensure that the amount of regular THC falls below the legal threshold of 0.3% and is 100% lead free. And, while Delta 8 THC is mellower than its regular marijuana, it can still cause the same side effects — but also to a lesser degree.

If you’re wondering why legal states like Colorado and Alaska are included in this list, it’s because their laws that authorize Delta-9 THC specifically forbid “cis or trans THC and their optical isomers” — and Delta 8 is an isomer.
