Keep on reading to find out more about these benefits, the difference between Delta 8 and CBD flower and how Delta 8 may be a great fit for you!
What is Delta 8 Flower?
Delta 8 is a minor cannabinoid present in the cannabis plant. It is found in very small amounts, usually less than 1% in the hemp plant. Meanwhile, Delta 9 THC is the euphoria-inducing compound found in cannabis, iconically referenced as marijuana. Delta 8 is far less abundant than Delta 9, but it is still considered THC.
Keep in mind that Delta 8 is a product of Delta 9 degradation. Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, the growth, sale and consumption of all hemp-derived products is federally legal, as long as the product contains up to 0.3% Delta 9 THC. Delta 9 degrades into other cannabinoids, so just imagine how small the amount of Delta 8 is!
To further explain, Delta 8 flower is simply CBD flower that has Delta 8 added to it. The result is a smokable cannabis flower with tons of added effects to the mind and body.
What Are the Differences Between THC, CBD & Delta 8 Flower?
The differences of THC, CBD, and Delta 8 flower outweigh their similarities. All three of these compounds will help you relax in different ways. Their intensities are different, but don’t worry! You can always find something that works for you.
THC flower is what most people are the most familiar with. Stemming from the marijuana plant, THC flower has a reputation for presenting feelings of tranquility and deep relaxation. THC is collected through resin glands secreted by the marijuana plant. Through an extraction process involving either CO2 or another solvent like Ethanol, the purity of the THC is enhanced, making for a better reaction between you and your bud.
These are a few of the most common effects of smoking THC flower.
CBD comes from the Hemp plant. Hemp is a cannabis plant that contains high levels of CBD. Cannabis and marijuana are easily confused, but the main difference between the two is that marijuana has high levels of THC, while CBD has very little.
The flower from CBD is highly versatile and easily applied to a number of different products. You can enjoy CBD hemp flowers in a tincture, vape, gummy or even within a lotion or salve! Though smoking the flower from this plant is one of the most aromatic ways to enjoy this cannabinoid. CBD has similar effects as THC flower at lower intensities.
These are some common benefits of smoking CBD.
Delta 8 Flower
Delta 8 is found in trace amounts in the cannabis plant (less than 1%). Because this compound is so scarce, we convert CBD isolate to Delta 8 distillate using a process called isomerization. The D8 is then sprayed on hemp flower. Delta 8 supports our endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is a regulatory system responsible for many essential functions in our body, like digestion, sleep and overall wellness. The hemp plant supports and the CB1 receptors in our body, which procures the soothing, therapeutic benefits Delta 8 has to offer.

Whether you prefer using a vape, smoking the bud itself, or chomping down on a delicious gummy, it’s all about what fits your lifestyle the best.
Smoking Delta 8

Consuming Delta 8
Who doesn’t like a good snack? Especially one that not only tastes good but makes you feel even better! No, I’m not referring to chocolate exclusively. Although, Delta 8 is enjoyable in many forms. That includes chocolate, but it doesn’t stop there. You can consume Delta 8 on gummies, cakes, cupcakes, and even chips. Yeah, you heard that right!
Delta 8 is infusible in just about anything imaginable. Luckily for you, not only do you get to enjoy a tasty snack but, consuming Delta 8 keeps this compound in your system a lot longer than smoking it does. It takes the longest for it to take effect because, after consumption, your body must break down and digest the food. The effects peak between 2 to 3 hours and, depending on potency, can last up to 6 hours or more.
Are there different type of Delta 8 Flower?
Delta 8 flower comes in the form of Sativa, Indica, and a combination of both referred to as a Hybrid. These strains have different effects, so no not all Delta 8 is made the same. Here is a bit about each of these strains.
Sativa plants leaves and body are longer and slimmer than Indica. This strain provides uplifting and euphoric feelings, with little to no fogginess. It can boost creativity and promote energy, which makes it a great daytime strain.
Indica plants are shorter and bushier, and their leaves are wider than Sativa strains. This strain promotes relaxation and sleep. It is often implemented for sedative purposes, which is why most utilize this strain at night.
A hybrid strain is a combination of Sativa and Indica. They are crossed together to create a new strain that usually encompasses the best traits both strains have to offer. Today, you will find that the number of hybrid strains is aplenty! There are always new strains with different effects and benefits.
