Delta 8 Buds by Delta Flowers
Judging by most online hemp forums, CBD is “old hat,” and delta-8 THC is “where it’s at!”
OK, that may be an exaggeration, but delta-8 is stealing some media attention from CBD. Due to its association with the illegal delta-9 THC, you could say a little “succès de scandale” bolstered delta-8’s media hype. However, fans of delta-8 flowers claim this cannabinoid has legitimate uses for issues like insomnia and stress.
Being advocates of Quality and Safety in the hemp industry, we’ve decided to take the Delta-8 Flower market by storm – Our goal is to allow people to get true top shelf Delta-8 Flower. This means fresh, potent, and lab tested buds. Oh, and did we say at reasonable pricing?
What Makes Delta-8 Flowers Different From CBD Hemp?
Delta-8 THC and CBD are both phytocannabinoids found in the hemp plant…and that’s pretty much where their similarities end.
While cannabinoid research is still in its early phases, most studies suggest delta-8 THC has psychoactive properties. Unlike CBD, delta-8 molecules can land directly on cannabinoid receptors, which could cause intense physiological effects.
By contrast, most studies on CBD suggest it has zero psychoactive potential. Instead, CBD appears to stimulate the production of natural neurotransmitters like serotonin and anandamide. Also, many researchers believe CBD actively blocks THC from landing on cannabinoid receptors, which may reduce a hemp strain’s potency.
Since delta-8 has psychoactive properties, it’s not as subtle as CBD-rich flowers. People who are only used to CBD products should approach delta-8 THC strains with caution.
Could Americans Legally Smoke Delta-8 Flowers?
Although the US federal government didn’t ban delta-8 THC, some states have introduced special laws against this cannabinoid. As delta-8’s popularity grows, even more territories may introduce anti-delta-8 policies to get a handle on this cannabinoid.
However, if you read the 2018 US Farm Bill, only delta-9 THC is illegal in the USA. Specifically, hemp-derived products with ≤ 0.3 percent delta-9 on a dry weight basis are OK in America.
Manufacturers should send delta-8 products for third-party lab screenings to prove their items meet these national guidelines. These tests should prove delta-8 flowers have the required limit of delta-9 THC.
Even though hemp-derived delta-8 is legal, customers should check their state’s hemp laws before ordering smokable flowers. The more delta-8 gains popularity, the more likely some territories will introduce bans on this cannabinoid.
Cannabis laws are constantly evolving, so it’s imperative consumers stay in the loop on any legal changes.
How Does Smoking Delta-8 Flowers Feel?
Most customers argue that delta-8 THC is a slightly less intense version of delta-9 THC. Put another way, delta-8 flowers feel more potent than CBD strains.
Due to delta-8’s psychoactive properties, it will have a “high-inducing” effect on users. A few sensations you may experience include euphoria, “body tingles,” and deep relaxation. Many customers also say delta-8 has mostly indica effects, but there’s still no science to back up these claims.
Could Delta-8 THC Appear On A Drug Screening?
Delta-8 has a unique molecular structure versus delta-9 THC, but it’s not distinct enough to pass a standard drug screening. If you have delta-8 THC in your system, chances are it will appear on your work-related THC test.
Unfortunately, delta-8 THC could take a long time to filter out of a person’s system. Depending on your weight, metabolism, and average weekly usage, this cannabinoid could linger in your body for days, weeks, or even months.
Employees should be wary of using delta-8 flowers a few days before a scheduled drug screening. Heck, even full-spectrum CBD products could give a false THC reading on these tests.
If you’re concerned about a surprise drug screening, you should steer clear of all products that contain traces of THC. Instead, focus on THC-free CBD isolate powders or broad-spectrum CBD extracts.
When Should People Smoke Delta-8 Flowers?
Every delta-8 hemp strain has slightly different effects, but most provoke body-heavy relaxation. Taken in large quantities, there’s a high chance delta-8 THC could have soothing effects on users.
For these reasons, it’s best to smoke delta-8 flowers after dinner. While you may not experience deep sedation after smoking delta-8 hemp, it’s safer to experiment with this cannabinoid when you have nothing on your schedule. If delta-8 happens to have a sedative effect, you won’t have to worry about it affecting your productivity.
Is Delta-8 Flower Safe For Beginners?
People who have no experience with hemp shouldn’t start with delta-8 THC. Instead, new customers should try CBD flowers, vape carts, or tinctures. Since CBD is non-psychoactive, there’s less risk for side effects like paranoia or digestive distress.
When customers feel comfortable moving on to delta-8, it’s a good idea to start with delta-8 edibles rather than fortified hemp flowers. Unlike smokable products, edibles have a subtler effect on the endocannabinoid system. Due to this weaker impact, hemp gummies help gently introduce new cannabinoids like delta-8 into a person’s body.
After customers figure out how delta-8 edibles affect them, it should be safe to move on to delta-8 THC flowers. Just remember that delta-8 flowers and vape carts have a powerful and immediate impact. Always wait about 15 minutes after a hit of delta-8 flowers to assess its effects.
Can Customers Vape Delta-8 THC Flowers?
You could add well-ground delta-8 hemp nugs to a dry herb vaporizer. Simply follow your device’s instructions for more specific guidance on loading and lighting your herb.
Some customers claim vaping delta-8 flowers is smoother and more flavorful than smoking raw hemp nugs. Unlike traditional joints, vaporizers use conduction or convection heating to heat dry herbs without creating carcinogens.
For those who have an e-juice compatible vaporizer, there are some delta-8 vape carts now on the market. Please only use the delta-8 THC products suitable for your vape device.
