Your Guide to Delta-8-THC Flower Buds
Delta-8-THC products are the new and legal way to get high! That’s right. This special, legal form of hemp flower will give you a psychoactive high, in a similar way to marijuana.
Delta-8-THC flower buds have high levels of the delta-8-THC cannabinoid, which has a close chemical resemblance to delta-9-THC. This hemp flower meets the legal requirements set by the Farm Bill, and has less than 0.3% delta-9-THC. CBD Genesis stocks a special hybrid strain of hemp called Cascade. This flower is available for purchase in 3.5g (one-eighth) batches.
But what is delta-8-THC? How does it differ to cannabis? And how can you use delta-8-THC flower? We’ve got the answers to all of those questions and much, much more in this comprehensive guide!
What is Delta-8-THC?
Delta-8-THC is a psychoactive cannabinoid, and interacts with our endocannabinoid system (ECS) to produce its effects. This compound is very similar to delta-9-THC, except for a few atomic bond differences. When US lawmakers decided to legalize hemp, the only cannabinoid they were worried about restricting was delta-9-THC. So, thanks to a legal loophole, companies can legally sell hemp products with high levels of psychoactive delta-8-THC!
Differences between Delta-8-THC and regular THC
While touted as the legal form of standard THC, delta-8-THC does have some important differences. Sure, it will give you a recognizable psychoactive high, but handily, delta-8-THC flower promises less paranoia and anxiety than regular THC!
Introducing our Delta-8-THC flower buds
Cascade hemp flower is rich in delta-8-THC, and its terpene profile provides hybrid effects. The delicate balance of sativa and indica properties means you can expect physical stimulation and a cerebral boost from Cascade. But you can also anticipate reduced anxiety, improved mood, and perhaps even some pain relief and muscle relaxation.
And it’s that balance of hybrid strains which makes them ideal, whether it’s early morning, mid-afternoon or evening. There’s no intense couchlock to worry about, or any excessive stimulation and euphoria to stop you from getting on with your daily tasks.
What can I do with Delta-8-THC flower?
The versatility of hemp flower sometimes goes unappreciated. The reality is that delta-8-THC flower has a wide range of uses, and there are several ways you can extract its benefits.
Think flower, think smoking. Puffing on a joint or ripping on a bong are the images that spring to mind when thinking of hemp or cannabis flower. This classic method of consumption is perfect for savoring the flavor, and for getting high as speedily as possible. With our Cascade delta-8-THC flower, you can roll up a fat joint and enjoy solo, or with friends!
Smoking hemp is not as dangerous as smoking tobacco, as it doesn’t have the same potential for addiction. But for those concerned about the health of their lungs, vaping is an ideal alternative that greatly reduces the risks, while still delivering that potent, fast-acting experience. With vaping, the lungs aren’t exposed to all the toxins and carcinogens that are present in smoke. Experts in the United Kingdom have estimated that vaping is 95% safer than smoking.
Make oils, edibles and creams!
If you fancy getting hands-on, you can also make your own products out of delta-8-THC flower for personal use. This is a great way for hemp enthusiasts to get more familiar with the plant, and experiment with different types of consumption for less.
For instance, with homemade edibles, you can enjoy a high that lasts much longer than with smoking or vaping (although it does take longer to kick in). With homemade tincture oils, you can get fast-acting effects, and completely eliminate the negative effects of inhalation. And with homemade creams, you can sample the potential therapeutic effects of delta-8-THC, such as pain relief and improvements to skin condition. However, you can’t get high from delta-8-THC in cream forms, as the cannabinoids remain in the skin and are not transported to the brain.
Delta-8-THC and drug tests
Delta-8-THC flower may be legal, but unfortunately, it probably won’t stop you from failing a drug test. As mentioned, delta-8-THC and delta-9-THC are very similar, and the compounds are therefore broken down into very similar metabolites. Hence, a drug test that can detect regular THC will most likely be able to detect delta-8-THC as well. This isn’t absolutely definitive, as there is very little research on delta-8-THC. But from what we know, it’s probably not worth taking the risk.
We’re excited to stock Delta-8-THC Flower in our collection at CBDVapeJuice.net. There’s no better way to get high right now than with a totally legal, and top-quality product.
