Delta 8 Infused Hemp Flower
Delta 8 is an awesome, legal cannabis product that produces a smooth high; what's not to love about that? Due to its legality, delta 8 is an excellent alternative for people who love smoking marijuana but live in a state where it is illegal. It is also a perfect choice for those who often feel like they get too high from marijuana and don't like the anxiety that comes with it.
Delta 8 products typically take the form of gummies, vape carts, or tinctures. While these products are great at delivering the desired effects, they are still not the same as actually smoking marijuana. If you are someone who loves the feel, the smell, and the taste of marijuana, but you desire the effects of delta 8, you've come to the right place. Elyxr is now proudly offering delta 8 infused hemp flower.
What is hemp flower?
Hemp flower is precisely what its name suggests. It is simply the bud portion of the hemp plant. Both hemp and marijuana contain cannabinoids such as THC, CBD, and CBT, within their leaves and stocks, but the concentrations are very minute. What makes these plants special is that the females grow flowering buds ripe with much higher concentrations of those same cannabinoids. These dense, cannabinoid-laden buds are iconic to the cannabis plant, of which both marijuana and hemp are subspecies.
Marijuana vs. hemp
Although the two are of the same genus, the differences between hemp and marijuana are stark. But these differences do not lie in physical appearance. In fact, at a glance, the two are nearly indistinguishable. These differences lie within the concentrations of cannabinoids that each possess, most notably those of Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The THC content in hemp ranges from less than 0.1%-0.5%. On the other hand, marijuana THC content can be anywhere from 5% all the way up to 30%. Some extremely potent strains can be even higher than that.
Δ9-THC is the most significant cannabinoid because it is the most powerful psychoactive ingredient in the plant. It is for this reason cannabis was made illegal in the early 1900s. The psychoactive properties of this compound were so potent that the government could not overlook them. Yet while marijuana has up to 30% of this psychoactive compound, hemp has less than 1%. The difference in this regard is immense.
Is hemp flower legal?
Despite the differences between the two, for most of human history, people simply considered marijuana and hemp to be the same thing. It is for this reason that hemp has faced such harsh legal constraints over the past decade. When marijuana was initially made illegal in 1937, hemp was made illegal as well. It was only just recently that people became conscious of the differences between the two plants.
Because hemp has less than 0.3% delta 9 THC, it's not held to the same legal constraints as marijuana. This has opened the door for the production and sale of hemp flower. Hemp flower is sold as is, or it can be infused with other cannabinoids such as CBD or delta 8.
The benefits of delta 8 infused hemp flower
Δ8 flower is excellent for people who love the act of smoking and are looking for a marijuana alternative. Maybe you simply love the act of sparking up a joint but don't want to get completely stoned. Or perhaps you love smoking cannabis, but marijuana is illegal in your state. In either case, delta 8 flower is the perfect option for you.
The euphoric effects of delta 8 are much milder in comparison to those of delta 9 THC. One of the best benefits of Δ8 flower is the fact that you can smoke an entire joint and still be able to function. You'll be high, but you can still get things done if you need to. Even one hit from a joint containing typical marijuana can leave those who aren’t veteran users couch-locked.
The most significant benefit of Δ8 flower is the fact that it is legal. Because of this, you can openly smoke it without facing any legal recourse. This holds true even in states where marijuana is prohibited. But be careful, Δ8 flower has the same look and taste as marijuana so if you are smoking it in public some may mistakenly think you are smoking marijuana.
How is delta 8 infused hemp flower made?
One key thing to remember is that hemp flower in its natural state has very low amounts of delta 8 THC—less than a fraction of a percent. In order to get the beneficial effects of delta 8, it must be added to the hemp flower. There are a few different methods for doing this, but the most essential component is distillate.
Distillate is made by taking extracted delta 8 and further refining it until it is close to 100% purity. This distillate is then evenly applied to hemp buds, most often through the process of spraying or tumbling. Once the bud has had sufficient time to dry, it is ready to be smoked.
Quality delta 8 flower
The quality of the Δ8 flower depends on two things: the delta 8 distillate and the hemp. At Elyxr, all of our products utilize clean and pure delta 8 extracted from hemp grown in Colorado, Oregon, and California. If you're looking for high-quality delta 8 flower, look no further.
