There are a lot of reasons why we use Delta-8 THC. It helps us relax and calm down. It gives us a great, all-natural, hemp-derived buzz unlike anything else on the market today. At Diamond CBD, we’re always coming up with wonderful new products such as Alibi Delta-8 THC Disposable Vape Pens and 10X Delta-8 THC Disposable Vape Pens. And well, Delta-8 just makes us feel good.
But as with all things we use and consume, we have a responsibility to make sure we treat the environment with respect when we do so. Being environmentally friendly not only sounds good, but it’s important for us and future generations of Delta-8 users. After all, sustainability is one of the most essential things threatening the world right now. And a lack thereof could have terrible consequences.
But how can all of us pitch in to make sure that our Delta-8 THC consumption is more sustainable and environmentally friendly? After all, how much harm could a few gummies or a few puffs off of our Delta-8 THC vapes really do to Mother Earth? Well, you would be surprised.
Listen, Delta-8 THC is fantastic, and here at Diamond CBD, we love it as much as anyone else. But the more you use, the bigger the footprint you leave behind. Think about all of these disposable vape pens or vape cartridges. What about all of those jars of Delta-8 gummies and pouches too. And then there’s the packaging—boxes upon boxes upon boxes of Delta-8 THC.
Your high could end up leaving the earth feeling very down.
“Despite what marijuana’s many monikers (i.e. weed, grass, herb) might suggest, it still takes considerable effort to stay green while growing green. Cannabis’ demand for water, land, artificial lighting, and single-use packaging can leave a large environmental footprint if it isn’t done carefully,” wrote Leafly in a recent article. The same is true for Delta-8 THC.
But there is good news for Mother Earth — and it starts right here at Diamond CBD. If you love Delta-8 THC and all of the other cannabinoids the hemp plant has blessed upon us, including CBD and Delta-10 THC, there are things you can do to maintain an environmentally sustainable buzz.
“Luckily, things are changing in the cannabis industry for the better, and more eco-friendly alternatives are being explored nationwide. To see the large-scale impact, both growers and consumers alike need to educate themselves on the toll marijuana can have on the planet and what steps can be taken to offset the environmental impact,” wrote Leafly.
So let’s see how we can all maintain our buzz in a sustainable way. Here are a few things you can do to keep your Delta-8 use environmentally friendly.
Try Companies That Use Less Energy
We all need power. We need it for everything from our cars to our electronics to our manufacturing plants and more. Even the companies from which you purchase Delta-8 THC are burdening the earth with energy consumption. But you can do something to help. For example, here at Diamond CBD, you know that we get our hemp from non-GMO farms in the USA. But you may not know that we also get it from farms that conserve energy too.
The thing is, many places can’t grow their hemp outdoors. And when you can’t grow outside, you can’t use the natural energy provided by the sun. In those instances, growers are forced to use alternative power sources that create a lot of waste.
“Without access to the sun, indoor plants require energy-intensive grow lights. Plants need about 18 hours of light a day when in the vegetative stage and 12 hours a day when flowering, so electricity used to grow indoors quickly adds up. Not to mention the energy needed to power the fans, heating systems, air-conditioners, and dehumidifiers,” writes Leafly.
But we get the bulk of our hemp from outdoor growers. It’s what makes our Delta-8 THC gummies, vapes, and smokeables taste so great and the buzz so much better. And it’s what makes our products better for the environment.
So do your part for the environment and buy from Diamond CBD. You get a better buzz, and you get the satisfaction of knowing you’re not wasting energy.
Environmentally-Friendly Packaging Is Much More Sustainable
As we mentioned above, one of the biggest things in the hemp and Delta-8 that’s killing the environment is packaging. Packaging and plastics create so much waste that one day the world will be covered in just Delta-8 THC packages, all because we wanted our buzz. This means all of us need to do better because we only have one planet, and we have to take care of it, not only for ourselves but for future generations as well.
“While it is important (and legally required) to provide consumers with child-proofed packaging and clear labeling, there’s a concerning amount of plastic waste because of it, contributing to an estimated 150 million tons of cannabis waste produced annually,” writes Leafly.
“As the cannabis industry is becoming a bigger part of our living planet, the need for sustainable packaging solutions has never been greater,” the article continued.
So what are we doing here at Diamond CBD? We’re exploring all-new ways to package our products. Over the next few years, we plan to have only environmentally friendly, sustainable packaging on all of our Delta-8 and other products. For example, why not package hemp with hemp? It’s the ideal way to care for the earth, and more importantly, it’s our responsibility.
We’re Doing the Work to Keep the Planet Safe
Here at Diamond CBD, innovation is extremely important to us. We’re always coming up with new ways to deliver Delta-8 THC, Delta-10, and other cannabinoids. We know that you love hemp for various reasons, and we want you only to have the best. But the best means being environmentally friendly too.
That’s why we’re doing the work to keep our products sustainable. Now and over the next few years, we’re going to make sure that we are one of the top companies when it comes to sustainability in the hemp market. Because feeling the buzz is great, but it means nothing if there’s no planet to feel the buzz on.
