Delta-8 THC indeed has some uniquely amazing qualities, especially if you’re into getting the best of both worlds. Somehow, D-8 – as Delta-8 THC is more popularly called – does have all goodness of natural cannabis, i.e., best of what CBD and Delta-9 THC have to offer, without any of D-9’s side effects.
And if you’re among those who love that about D-8, then you must have come across at least a few “3Chi D-8 THC products”.
And, that’s no surprise. 3Chi was the first cannabis brand in the USA to develop and make pure and federally legal THC-dominant products after the veil came down on cannabis-based products.
But that is not to say that 3Chi makes only D-8 products.
It rather has a whole range of products, specifically designed for each occasion, focused on different cannabinoids apart from Delta-8, such as CBD, CBN, CBC, CBG, and THCV products.
But that’s a topic for another day. Today, we’ll discuss why 3Chi should be your favorite D-8 brand.
Why We Trust The Brand
Founded by a biochemist, with personal experience of cannabis’ benefits and over 15 years’ experience in formulating cannabis-based products, 3Chi is among the finest and most reliable brands in the D-8 segment.
Bolstered by its research and development of a wide range of cannabinoids, the brand has designed some of the best quality and most effective products in the market.
Its development of the best way of extracting pure Delta-8 THC from hemp back in September 2019 paved the way for the compound (and its wonderful properties) to enter the cannabis industry for the first time in America. That triggered a new age of cannabis-derived products in the industry – one that offered a lot more than what CBD had done so far.
3Chi’s D-8 products provided much more than all the great qualities of CBD. It added a mild high (for those who love that about cannabis), without any of the undesirable after-effects of “getting high” with which we are all so very well familiar. And, from then on, 3Chi’s custom-designed cannabinoid blends and latest technologies have led the way for all brands venturing into the Delta-8 segment in the US.
Here are some of the reasons why we prefer 3Chi.
Cannabis is legal in America only if it is hemp. In other words, if the cannabis extract does not contain over 0.3% delta-9 THC by dry weight. 3Chi has made sure that the hemp it sources its products from contains around 95% pure, concentrated, and potent Delta-8 THC, but below 0.3% delta-9.
The brand is focused on making high-quality hemp-based products easily accessible to people. That is why its D-8 THC products are all sourced from GMO-free, organically-grown hemp, cultivated on licensed hemp farms across America.
SAFE & HI-TECH EXTRACTION & PRODUCTION
3Chi’s extraction and manufacturing practices are as eco-friendly and sustainable as its farming. It utilizes the CO2 extraction process to obtain its cannabinoids.
The brand double-checks its extracts and products for their D-8 concentration and D-9 presence, ensuring that the products are potent, safe, and legally viable for consumers. So much so, most of the products are subjected to an added line of filtration process to remove any traces of D-9 THC.
That’s why you’ll notice the extract type mentioned as broad-spectrum on the brand’s website.
3Chi’s D-8s are non-fluff, down-to-basics, yet tastefully formulated products.
While the vapes contain only its proprietary blend of broad-spectrum cannabinoids and a specific terpene profile, its tinctures only have MCT oil and Vitamin E as healthy additions. As for its gummy bears, there are only a few natural cooking ingredients to hold the extract and its flavors to the edibles, such as glucose syrup, sugar, distilled water, fruit pectin, citric acid, and sodium citrate.
THIRD-PARTY LAB TESTED
The brand makes it a point to get all its products tested by a certified third-party laboratory to ensure they offer only safe, potent, and effective products. The lab-testing also ensures legally safe products. The certificates of analysis submitted by the independent labs are available on the brand website.
When it comes to D-8 products, no brand can match the reliability and quality of 3Chi’s offerings. Anyone who has at least a year’s experience using cannabis products, especially delta-8 THC products, will tell you that 3Chi is the brand to depend on for the best quality and most effective customer service.
The company takes responsibility for its products and adheres to federal regulations. It goes above and beyond to dispel all confusion surrounding cannabis-based products and make people aware of the laws through its blogs and FAQ section on its website.
Top 3 D-8 Products By 3Chi: The Finest & The Smoothest
3Chi offers a wide range of products, containing various blends of compounds, including specific lines of products dedicated to some specific major and minor cannabinoids, including CBD, CBN, CBG, CBC, THCV, and Delta-8 THC.
Let’s take a look at three of 3Chi’s most dynamic and popular D-8 products.
- Delta-8 THC Vape Cartridge
- Delta-8 THC Gummy Bear
- Delta-8 THC Tincture
#1. Delta-8 THC Vape Cartridge
3Chi’s Delta-8 vape carts promise to provide an unrivaled sensation, making you feel alive and relaxed at the same time.
These vape carts contain 95% Δ8THC extract and 5% strain-specific terpenes. This pure and highly concentrated product could feel a bit harsh on the throat and chest for the uninitiated, as most D-8 products do. Made from natural hemp extracts, it’s federally legal and safe for humans with all kinds of health conditions.
The e-liquid comes housed in glass CCELL cartridges, with a ceramic core and mouthpiece. The design and material used make for an optimal vaping experience.
The brand offer s a wide variety of Sativa and Indica strains, each with its unique flavors and aroma. While some of them contain cannabis-derived terpenes, others contain other botanical terpenes, making these vapes completely natural.
For instructions on the usage, you can look up the brand’s product page, or check the product label, to get a better idea.
- Extract Type: Broad-Spectrum
- Ingredients: Broad-Spectrum Δ8THC oil (zero D-9 THC) and strain-specific terpenes
- Strains/Flavors: 33 strains (for strain options, effects, and flavors, check website)
- D-8 Strengths: 950mg (1ml) or 475mg (0.5ml)
- Cannabis-derived terpenes: 50mg/25mg
Buyers were as satisfied with the prompt company customer service as they were with the product’s unmatched quality and flavors. And that’s not to mention the cartridge’s effectiveness. Each and every customer appreciated how satisfying, uplifting, and calming the cartridge made him/her feel.
A customer, who tried out two of the brand’s available strains – Caribbean Dreams and Strawberry Napalm – loved the flavors and mild high that these carts provided. The same customer called the customer service “exemplary”. She even thanked the company for being “extremely responsive” and swiftly shipping her products.
Even wholesalers were happy with the response they got from their customers for these carts.
Another customer, who had used the Green Crack and Sunset Sherbet, loved the flavors and loved the way each puff from this vape cart diminished his anxiety, leaving him blissfully calm and relaxed. The customer even mentioned that he’d try the Grand Daddy Pluto on his next order. He also said that these carts gave him a mild high, yet kept him sharp enough to solve complicated problems.
Compared to most other D-8 carts, this did not hurt the throat as much. In fact, the aroma, the smoke, and the taste were all quite smooth. From the first to the last puff – it always felt nice and never burnt or off-flavor.
The standard 1mL variant is excellent for most users. For beginners, however, the 0.5mL variant works best. This is among the few brands that offer this option.
On checking the lab reports, we were satisfied with the findings – enough to encourage them to try the product. And, the brand didn’t disappoint us! The product was excellent and the customer service unbeatable.
#2. Delta-8 THC Gummies
3Chi has come out with its Delta-8 THC gummies that are both tastefully formulated and effective. Available in packs of 8 and 16 gummy bears, each gummy delivers a potent dose of 25mg of D-8 THC. Besides D-8 THC, these gummies also contain other cannabinoids, like CBC and CBN, to boost as well as balance the overall impact.
These gummies are vegan and gluten-free. These Delta-8 gummies taste like regular gummies – deliciously sweet and fruity – with no hempy flavor.
You can choose to pop one of two gummies at a time, depending on the high you want to feel. Have them with food or not more than 30 minutes before your meals.
Although you won’t typically experience any side effects like those associated with marijuana, we would advise you against operating any heavy machinery while on these gummies.
The brand recommends you refrigerate the gummies once you open the package to keep them away from heat and moisture.
- Extract Type: Broad-Spectrum
- Ingredients: Broad-Spectrum Δ8THC oil (zero D-9 THC), Glucose Syrup, Sugar, Distilled Water, Pectin, Natural Flavors, Natural Colors, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate
- Strains/Flavors: Black Raspberry and Watermelon
- D-8 Strengths: 25mg/gummy (8-count pack – 200mg and 16-count pack – 400mg)
Customers enjoyed the tripping thrill and the tasty treat each of these gummies offered. Since these gummies start working in less than an hour, people loved the idea of munching down on them with their meals.
Some consumers regrated that these gummies often go out of stock. But, of course, this suggests these gummies are immensely popular.
A few people, who suffered from anxiety, depression, or sleep issues, claimed to have benefited after consuming these gummy bears. But they recommended using them slowly to let the body adjust to the effects. Most reviewers claimed that this was the best D-8 product they’ve tried.
Humid weather is the enemy of these gummies. We received our gummies looking like a single gooey blob. But once refrigerated, everything was fine again. The effects didn’t diminish at all and we enjoyed the whole lot immensely.
We tried them during our lunch break at work. Since we were expected to try these, we did not have to worry about work or handling any heavy machinery. We weren’t going anyway.
We believe these are quite effective. We enjoyed how the effects lingered on till sundown. We didn’t feel tired or restless. Work problems have evaporated, but we weren’t feeling groggy or dull! We were quite active and socialized with people around us – even those we do not communicate with much.
Although they were pleasantly surprised, interestingly, they didn’t seem to realize we were high on D-8. We believe these are a great way of improving one’s social life! But, without any of the nasty things that marijuana does to you.
#3. Delta-8 THC Tincture
Its Delta-8 THC tincture contains a broad-spectrum blend of hemp extract, rich in Delta-8 THC. It also contains other cannabinoids CBD, CBC, CBN, CBDa, CBG, CBDv, etc (in that order) and plant-based terpenes to boost the efficacy of D-8 THC.
Like most other cannabinoid tinctures, coconut-derived MCT oil is used as a carrier base. The cannabis-derived terpenes give this product its typical hempy, earthy flavor. So, if you’re not among those who prefer that, you may want to opt for gummies or vapes instead, as they come in wonderful flavors.
The tincture is contained in a black tinted glass bottle, with a child-resistant 1mL-dropper and metered pipette for easy dosing. Measure your doses carefully and place as many drops as you like under the tongue. Since this product contains potent doses of D-8 THC, it’s best to start with a small dose, allowing your body to acclimatize to the D-8’s effects.
Never use this product with vaporizers or other vape devices. They are not compatible with vaping devices.
- Extract Type: Broad-Spectrum (Ethanol-extracted)
- Ingredients: Broad-Spectrum Hemp Extract, rich in Δ8THC oil (zero D-9 THC), along with cannabis-derived terpene blend, MCT, and Vitamin E
- Strains/Flavors: Hempy/Natural
- Container size: 1 oz / 30 ml
- D-8 Strengths: 300 mg (10 mg/ml), 600 mg (20 mg/ml), and 1200 mg (40 mg/ml)
Excellent customer service, fast shipping, and amazing effect – these are the reacti0ns we noticed being repeated by customers of 3Chi D-8 tinctures.
Consumers loved the high-quality extract used in this product and the relaxed and upbeat feeling these tinctures provided. Most users experienced an improved appetite, reduced pain and inflammation, and better sleep after using these tinctures.
Since the effects are a little slower on the uptake than vapes, customers recommended starting with a very small dose to allow the body to take it in gradually. For most users, 5 – 15 mg doses were adequate.
A customer loved these tinctures so much that he went on to call 3Chi the “best supplier of delta-8 products currently on the market”.
Since we had read the reviews before trying them, we weren’t surprised by the effects. However, we would have enjoyed them even more if the tinctures came in some nice flavors.
We have taken a dose of 10mg each. The effects were smooth, but not overwhelming. We were in this state for almost 6 hours.
A calming and soothing feeling filled our minds and bodies as the effects started percolating every cell of our being. But we didn’t feel sleepy. We were filled with soothing and lively energy.
Somehow, these tinctures helped us come up with some excellent ideas for our projects, too!

Buying Guide on Delta-8 Products For Beginners
Decide On The Type Of Product That Suits You Best: Tinctures, gummies, or vapes? What would you prefer? Well, that depends on where and how you would like to consume D-8 THC.
Decide On D-8 Strength Before Ordering: As per your body weight and age, it is best to get an estimate of how much you can take. Depending on the type of product and your capacity to tolerate D-8, buy a product that you can easily dose-control.
Determine How D-8 Products Should Appear: D-8 THC products are usually clear and transparent. Even if it is a wax. While some a light yellowish in color, most of them are clear. But they are usually always transparent. That is one of the hallmarks of a quality product.
Understand How D-8 Should Make You Feel: D-8 THC has a mildly intoxicating effect on most people. Apart from whatever effects people claim to experience, this one is a solid constant. So, make sure you are ready for that. If that is what you’re looking for, then, go ahead – enjoy!
Research Brand Reputations: Not all brands can produce good quality D-8 products, partly owing to the complexity of procuring natural D-8 from hemp. Besides, being a minor cannabinoid, the whole process of extraction and manufacturing is complicated and expensive. Brands that make and sell quality D-8 products will charge you highly. So, don’t get fooled by unreputable brands selling cheap knock-offs.
Check The Lab Reports: Always make it a point to check third-party lab reports of any cannabinoid product. Brands that do not submit their extracts for independent scientific verification have something to hide. Those who refuse to show the results definitely don’t want their customers to know that their products are bad.
Legal Issues & State Laws: Know the laws of the state you reside in. Although D-8 is technically legal at the federal level, not all states allow shipments containing any kind of THC product to reach their doorstep, whether it is delta-8 or delta-9 (the major psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis plants). If you reside in any of the following states, you could land in trouble for procuring or possessing D-8 THC products: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Mississippi, Montana, Rhode Island, and Utah.
FAQs About 3Chi
Q: Could the smoke given off by a vape cartridge taste or smell burnt?
A: Yes, it could if you didn’t prime the product properly. The 3Chi cartridges are stored and shipped in an upside-down position to prevent leakage. This causes the oil to settle at the bottom, leaving the cotton wick exposed to air. When the coil is heated, the cotton wick starts to burn and gives off that nasty smell. So, before you use the cart, flip and prime the cartridge to allow the oil to come in direct contact with the coil.
Q: Can a vape cartridge be returned for a full refund?
A: No, you can’t. Most brands do not give any guarantee on vape products. 3Chi is no different. It is difficult to ensure safe and secured packing and travel for vape carts. Besides, this brand offers no returns/refunds on used products. You can expect to get a refund only on unused products, sent back in their original sealed package.
Q: What kind of battery is required for using 3Chi’s Delta-8 THC Vapes?
A: Like most other vape carts, 3Chi’s Delta-8 vape cartridges required a 510-compatible battery to go with the vaping device. Since their products do not come with batteries, you need to buy them yourself.
Q: Why do 3Chi’s Delta-8 tinctures contain MCT?
A: 3Chi’s Delta-8 tinctures contain coconut-derived medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) as a carrier oil. This plant-based carrier oil, being a safe, fat-based, nutritious base, allows easy absorption of the cannabinoids into the body. Besides, a good carrier oil also enhances the overall efficacy and benefits.
Q: What happens to a D-8 order placed by someone residing in a state where D-8 isn’t legal?
A: Even if you’ve placed the order without knowing that D-8 is illegal in your state, the brand will simply cancel the order and refund the money to the same location from which it was paid.
Q: Does 3Chi accept wholesale orders?
A: Yes, it does. Orders worth under $20,000 typically fall under retail purchases and will be delivered within 2-4 business days. If the order price exceeds $20,000, you’ll need to call ahead to guarantee order fulfillment. Nevertheless, such orders are usually fulfilled within 7 business days.
Finally, Should You Choose 3Chi For Delta-8 THC Products?
Let’s be very clear: The choice is yours, and yours alone. But we would highly recommend that you don’t buy counterfeit products from an unreputable vendor.
It’s safest to choose a brand like 3Chi that produces high-quality, natural hemp products and adheres to federal laws and safety norms.
