Delta 8 Cart Changing Colors

So you’ve been enjoying your Delta 8 cart for sometime now. Those daily puffs sending you to new levels of relaxation and sense of euphoria, but hey you are taking your time on this one to make it really last. After sometime though, you start to notice something odd… your delta 8 oil is changing colors. Don’t worry though, everything is fine and here is why! We'll tell you why your Delta 8 cart is changing colors and why it's nothing to worry about.

What is Delta 8?

Before we start talking about why your Delta 8 Cart is changing colors, we must first break down what is Delta 8 exactly. Delta 8 THC is a natural occurring cannabinoid found organically in the hemp plant, that has rapidly expanded its popularity over the last year due to its post-consumption effects of euphoria and relaxation.

We expand upon all this more in What is Delta 8 THC?

Keep in mind for the rest of this article that Delta 8 THC occurs naturally in the hemp plant, and is not synthetic or comparable to the likes of K2 or spice.

Why is my Delta 8 cart changing color?

Good news! Your cart is fine and is actually going through a very natural process! Like all naturally occurring products, even hemp (or Delta 8, cannabis, CBD and even marijuana) oils contain bioactive substances that due change overtime. Any high quality cart, do not contain any unnatural additives or preservatives, meaning they are subject to natural chemical reactions from things like time, heat, and sun exposure.

Every time you take a hit from your cartridge, you are exposing your oil to heat and oxygen, which are both responsible for the process of oxidation, the prime contributor to the natural darkening process, but by no means does that mean your oil is no longer effective.

Make your delta 8 cart last!

Hemp oil carts will not last you forever though, as after a couple of months there is a slight decline in quality and after one year the chemical structure does begin to degrade and we recommend you finish your cartridge within six months of your purchase.

Some great tips to make your cart last longer is to avoid leaving your oil in direct sunlight or in high temperature environments. The best place to extend the life of your cart is to leave it in a cool, dry and dark place.

Hometown Hero Delta 8 Carts

Now let’s talk our carts! First off, all of our carts are loaded with natural terpenes and filled to the brim with 600mg of Delta 8 THC in every single cart!

If you see your Hometown Hero Cart changing color, again, do not worry at all because it is only happening due of all the natural terpenes and the oil just going through a natural oxidization process! You should be more worried if your cart does NOT darken, or changes to a completely different color as it shows that unnatural compounds were added in the creation process (that will never happen with one of our products).

We are excited to continue to bring you top-notch, natural Delta 8 carts and are always looking to expand our extensive library of Delta 8 Products! As always, if you have any questions, comments or concerns do not be afraid to reach out via our customer service line or any of our social media accounts, @HometownHeroCBD!
