Delta 8 Carts vs. Disposable Vapes - Secret Nature

With the recent release of Secret Nature’s disposable vape line, it’s time to determine the differences between delta 8 cartridges and delta 8 disposables. Ultimately, these two types of vapes are more similar than they are different, but you might prefer one option over the other depending on the circumstances.

If you’re having trouble deciding which type of Secret Nature delta 8 vape is right for you, I’ll use my personal experience with both product types to help you make the right decision. Read on to discover how delta 8 vapes and disposables compare in seven different categories and find answers to the most commonly asked delta 8 vape questions.

What are delta 8 carts?

Delta 8 carts are vape cartridges containing hemp extract that’s high in delta 8 THC. Replaceable but not refillable, you can attach a delta 8 vape cart to any standard 501-threaded vape battery, making your vape experience highly customizable.

Are all delta 8 carts the same?

Almost all delta 8 vape carts are compatible with standard vape batteries, but the similarities end there. It’s what’s inside your vape cartridge that counts, and the types of extracts used in delta 8 vapes vary considerably. Generally, delta 8 vape cartridges are best when they contain nothing more or less than CO2-extracted hemp concentrate combined with live resin, strain-specific cannabis terpenes.

What are delta 8 disposable vapes?

Delta 8 disposable vapes feature hemp extract high in delta 8 THC contained inside an all-in-one vaping device that combines the battery and the tank. When a delta 8 disposable is empty, you discard the entire device instead of recharging the battery and replacing the cartridge.

Are delta 8 disposables any good?

Yes, delta 8 disposables can be absolutely excellent under the right conditions. Disposable vapes are inherently convenient, and delta 8 disposables can also be high-quality and enjoyable as long as they’re made with top-tier hardware and contain connoisseur-grade hemp extract. Check lab tests and customer reviews to find out if a disposable delta 8 vape is a winner.

Secret Nature delta 8 cartridges vs. disposable vapes

We’ve covered the basic features of delta 8 cartridges and disposable vapes. Now, I’ll compare these two different types of D8 vape products in terms of convenience, discreetness, customizability, flavor, variety, effects, and rechargeability:


While D8 vape cartridges are already considerably convenient, the convenience of disposable delta 8 outdoes them to a considerable degree. Even the smallest vape battery will be considerably larger than even the largest disposable vape, and I’ve had issues in the past with cartridges clogging when I left them on their side.

It could just be my personal experience, but I was unable to make any of my Secret Nature delta 8 disposables leak or clog regardless of how I stored them. This feature increases the convenience of an already highly convenient product.


Disposable delta 8 vapes are also the winners when it comes to discreetness. Those who are in the know can tell the difference between a nicotine vape pen and a cannabis cartridge-battery combo from a considerable distance. Secret Nature’s disposable vapes, however, look just like some of the most popular nicotine vape pods until you perform a closer examination. Combine this factor with the small size of the Secret Nature Delta 8 Disposable Vape, and you have the most discreet cannabis vape I’ve ever seen.


One of the few downsides of disposable delta 8 vapes is their lack of customization options. You only have one temperature setting to choose from, and you can’t switch out your battery even if you want to. In terms of the capacity to deliver customized results, D8 vape carts are the clear winners.


Since you have more control over the voltage your battery puts out with a D8 vape cartridge, you also have more control over the flavor of your vapor. Disposable vapes are designed to be convenient and hit reliably, and Secret Nature’s delta 8 disposable vape pens do just that. If you want the ability to dial down the harshness of your hits, however, a delta 8 vape cartridge would be the right way to go.


You can get every strain of Secret Nature delta 8 extract currently available in cartridges in disposable vape form as well. What’s more, the new Secret Nature disposable delta 8 vape line also includes Gelato and Wedding cake, making disposables the winners in terms of variety. This evaluation may change as Secret Nature adds more strains to its D8 lineup.


I can say from personal experience that Secret Nature’s delta 8 disposable vapes hit harder than any battery I’ve ever hooked up to a Secret Nature D8 vape cartridge. I attribute this to the voltage of these disposable vapes, which is purposefully designed to be higher for improved convenience.

So, if you want to inhale more delta 8 faster (and thereby enjoy effects that are more intense), a disposable D8 vape would be the way to go. Aside from this one factor, though, I’d say the effects of disposable D8 vapes and D8 vape cartridges are roughly the same.


Usually, a vape cartridge would beat a disposable vape regarding rechargeability any day of the week. That’s what makes the Secret Nature D8 Disposable Vape different, though—you can recharge it when its battery dies.

I’ve never seen this feature in a disposable vape before. Lack of rechargeability was actually one of the main reasons I had previously stayed away from this type of vape product. Being rechargeable, more than any other factor, is what made me fall in love with the Secret Nature D8 Disposable Vape and regard it just as highly as Secret Nature’s delta 8 cartridges.

Delta 8 cartridges vs. disposables FAQ

Still have questions about how Secret Nature’s delta 8 vape cartridges and disposables compare? I’ll do my best to answer them below:

1. Is it better to vape delta 8?

Compared to smoking this cannabinoid, it is not necessarily better or worse to vape delta 8. What matters much more than if you inhale smoke or vapor is the quality of the vapor or smoke you inhale.

Based on ancient records, human beings have smoked cannabis for thousands of years without any concrete evidence accumulating that the practice is inherently dangerous. While vaping is a much newer phenomenon, some research indicates it might be more effective and possibly even safer than smoking.

Vaping delta 8 is definitely the right option if you want to keep your D8 session convenient and discreet. Vapor is less pungent than smoke, and there are no flames involved.

2. Are delta 8 vapes safe?

There is nothing that makes delta 8 vapes inherently more dangerous than any other type of hemp vape. As long as the delta 8 in the vape was converted from another cannabinoid using a safe process and it isn’t accompanied by any toxic ingredients, a delta 8 vape can be just as safe as a vape containing any other cannabinoid.

3. What is the most potent delta 8 disposable?

Coming in at more than 90% delta 8 and featuring the best live resin terpenes available, the Secret Nature Delta 8 Disposable Vape is the most potent D8 disposable on the market. Even if another vape were to somehow contain more delta 8, terpenes make all the difference when it comes to boosting the effects of this cannabinoid. Secret Nature’s live resin, strain-specific terpenes are second-to-none whether you want boost delta 8’s naturally energizing or relaxing effects.

4. How long does a delta 8 disposable last?

Delta 8 disposables last the same amount of time as any other vape product containing a comparable amount of delta 8 extract. Secret Nature delta 8 disposables, for instance, contain a gram of D8-rich hemp extract each, which lasts the average person around 3-15 days.

5. Are delta 8 carts legit?

Yes, as long as delta 8 carts contain high-quality hemp extract, live resin terpenes, and nothing else, they can certainly be 100% bonafide and worth a try. There are lots of imitators out there, however, so choose your D8 cartridges wisely.

6. What should I look for in a delta 8 cart?

When choosing a delta 8 vape cartridge, you should look for a product that features high-quality hardware (like a glass tank) and delta 8 distillate—not isolate. This distillate should also feature minor cannabinoids, and it should be accompanied by live resin terpenes. Any additional ingredients detract instead of add to the quality of a delta 8 cart.
