In the right corner, weighing in at a whopping 1 gram, it’s everyone’s new favorite cannabinoid: Delta 8! We’re not even being biased. But why reach for delta 8 flower when you may have ready access to the first bud on the block? Sit back and relax, and allow us to explain.
What makes this bud special?
Delta 8 THC is the hottest relative of the cannabis family as of late. This is mainly for its associated health benefits, potent high, and the fact that it’s federally legal. Delta 8 is related to both CBD and THC, but it basically falls in the middle in terms of potency. If you want to get technical, it’s far closer to delta 9 THC than CBD since it’s psychoactive. However, in order for products to be federally legal, they have to contain less than 0.3% THC. The same goes for CBD products, as you may know.
Like regular hemp flower that hasn’t been infused with delta 8 or even marijuana, you enjoy delta 8 flower through smoking. Smoking, vaping, or any form of inhalation will give you the fastest effects. Some users prefer this method as it’s easier to tell when you’ve had your fill. Though flower of course comes loose, you can also check out prerolls for less of a hassle. That being said, you may choose to use delta 8 flower to create your own blends at home.
Benefits of delta 8 flower
Beyond being legal and accessible to more interested parties (and we mean parties), there are some other benefits of delta 8 flower. For another thing, it’s actually a different plant experience than straight-up marijuana. A key difference is that users report no paranoia or mental fog from delta 8. In fact, the high from delta 8 is described as uplifting and calming and even allowing you to maintain creativity and focus. Beyond that, the flavors, aromas, and overall potency will also differ.
Depending on what other cannabinoids or terpenes are present, too, effects are typically felt more heavily in the body with some light cerebral sensations. Like all cannabinoid products, you can tap into the entourage effect the more plant compounds are present. This allows you to hit a synergistic sweet spot right from your couch, chaise lounge, beanbag, desk chair, wherever. And, like most cannabis products, delta 8 can help with anxiety, pain, nausea, and even libido and hangover symptoms.
