Getting the best value when you’re shopping for delta 8 products doesn’t always mean you grab something at the lowest possible price. In fact, exceptionally low prices can even be a red flag indicating untested, low-quality products.

But with a little knowledge and reasonable expectations, you can find high-quality delta 8 carts and edibles without breaking the bank. Of course, prices vary by location, and certain manufacturers charge a premium for their brand names. You can’t expect to pay dirt-cheap prices for high-quality delta 8 gummies, carts, or delta 8 tinctures. But you don’t have to walk away feeling like a victim, either.

This article aims to give consumers a baseline for what to expect when buying delta 8 products from trusted vendors with transparent safety testing. We looked at several popular online retailers and brands to calculate our medians—and help you gain some footing.

What is delta 8?

Delta 8 tetrahydrocannabinol (delta 8 THC) is a cannabinoid manufactured from hemp. Like marijuana-derived delta 9 THC, delta 8 has a psychotropic effect on the user. It will get you high, but the experience is usually clear-headed and mild.

Delta 8 products are available in various formats, including vape carts, edibles, and tinctures.

Delta 8 price: vape carts

Most delta 8 carts are 510 threaded, meaning they’re compatible with any 510 thread battery or device. Although they’re a bit less convenient than disposables, the price is lower in the long run.

Of the products we sampled, the median cost of delta 8 carts was $0.03 per milligram of D8 oil.

Cost of 500 mg delta 8 carts

With larger cart sizes on the rise, 500 mg (half-gram) delta 8 carts are sometimes difficult to find. The cost per milligram also tends to be higher compared to larger carts.

The median cost of 500 mg delta 8 carts is $0.05/mg of oil, for a total price tag of $25. Most carts fall into the $0.03 to $0.06 range ($15-30 total).

Cost of one-gram delta 8 carts

A one-gram delta 8 cart has a median cost of $0.032/mg ($32 total). It isn't hard to find carts between $0.02 and $0.035/mg ($20-35 total).

The price varies significantly across brands. More expensive carts are an option, with prices ranging from $35 to $60.

Cost of two-gram delta 8 carts

Two-gram delta 8 carts are the most cost-effective option, but they’re less common than one-gram carts. They have a median cost per milligram of just $0.017. Per cart, that’s a $34 price tag.

Most two-gram carts cost between $30 and $50. Pricier, high-end carts are hard to find in this size.

How much are delta 8 disposables?

Delta 8 disposables tend to be more expensive than prefilled carts. This is due to the added convenience and built-in battery. However, they’re often the more affordable option if you don’t already have a battery.

Looking at the median of our samples, disposable vapes cost $0.039 for every milligram of oil. The price ranges from around $0.015 to $0.13 per milligram. Most products sit somewhere in the middle, approximately $0.03 to $0.05.

Half-gram disposables are the least common, with total prices between $25 and $65. Most one-gram disposables cost between $27 and $60—and disposables on the lower end aren’t hard to find.

A typical two-gram disposable goes for a minimum of $30, but many cost $40 or more.

How much are delta 8 gummies & edibles?

It’s hard to compare the prices of edibles to the prices of carts and disposables when you look at it by total cost. From packs of gummies to individual pieces of chocolate bars, the total quantity and cost vary substantially. But when you break it down per milligram, edibles are typically more expensive than carts.

Cost of delta 8 gummies

Delta 8 gummies are widespread, with heavy variation in cost between brands. Per milligram, the median cost of delta 8 gummies is just over $0.05/mg of delta 8. The range was significant, with an expensive product at $0.12 and the cheapest going for just $0.014.

The savings are huge when you buy larger packs of gummies. Looking at it per milligram, the smallest products we found were the most expensive: a 150 mg pack at $0.09 and a 250 mg pack at $0.12.

For perspective, a 1000 mg package of gummies will set you back $40-60 total.

Cost of delta 8 capsules

Delta 8 capsules are among the most expensive delta 8 products on the market. The median cost came out to $0.07/mg, ranging from $0.02 to $0.15. Most products sit in the lower-middle to upper end of the price spectrum.

Cost of delta 8 chocolate bars

Delta 8 chocolate bars can be expensive, though cheaper options are available. The median cost is nearly $0.10 per milligram, ranging from $0.03/mg to a high price of $0.23.

Since delta 8 chocolate bars tend to come in smaller sizes (500 mg or less), the total cost is comparable to other edibles. A half-gram bar will cost from $15-30.

How much are delta 8 tinctures?

On average, delta 8 tinctures share a similar price tag to carts. They cost around $0.035 per milligram, with cheaper products selling for $0.01 or $0.02 per milligram. A higher-end tincture may cost as much as $0.09/mg.

The total cost of a 1000 mg tincture ranges from $20-55.

Delta 8 pricing: summary

Reflecting on the prices, chocolate bars are the most expensive delta 8 product on the market, while two-gram carts are the cheapest. If you’re interested in edibles, gummies are usually cheaper than other options.
