Vitality CBDDelta-8 Information

As we’ve previously discussed in our blog, Delta-8 THC is a naturally occurring compound that’s found in small traces in the hemp plant. However, Delta-8 is an umbrella term that includes a wide range of presentations and products. Among the many available options, the Delta-8 THC flower is rising in popularity due to its fast-acting effects and customizable user experience.

At Vitality, we know how important it is for each person to know exactly what they’re consuming. That’s why we’re going to explore how Delta-8 flowers are made and the benefits of using CBG in their preparation.

How Is Delta-8 Flower Made?

There are two main processes that it must undergo: Supercritical CO2 extraction and infusion.

Step 1: Supercritical CO2 extraction

Due to Delta-8 being produced in small amounts in the hemp plant, manufacturers create it through a chemical process called Supercritical CO2 extraction. This is a separation technique that extracts and separates substances using a fluid as a solvent. In this case, CO2 is the solvent of choice, as it’s a safer option than other toxic chemicals.

This process works by placing ground cannabis or hemp into an extraction vessel. CO2 is then pressurized and heated to reach a supercritical state, where it has the properties of both a liquid and a gas. The CO2 is then passed through the vessel and acts as a solvent, extracting Delta-8 from the plant as a result. The CO2 and extracted compounds are then transferred to a separate vessel, where the pressure is reduced, causing the CO2 to return to a gas state, leaving behind the extracted Delta-8.

Step 2: Infuse High-Quality CBG with Delta-8 Distillate Oil

The Delta-8 oil that was extracted in the first step must now be infused into the CBG flower. This is done by spraying or soaking the flowers in the distillate substance. When you smoke the CBG flower, the Delta-8 on the buds provides you with psychoactive effects.

Why Use CBG Flower?

CBG is a type of cannabinoid that comes from the cannabis plant. It’s often referred to as the mother of all cannabinoids because other cannabinoids are derived from cannabigerolic acid, the acid form of CBG. Similar to CBD, CBG is also a non-intoxicating cannabinoid, so what makes it the better choice when it comes to Delta-8?

When researching different brands, you may have noticed that many infuse CBD with Delta-8 instead of CBG. And while we’re fellow CBD lovers who enjoy its benefits, we believe that CBG is the better option in terms of infusing it with a psychoactive cannabinoid, such as Delta-8.

This is because the relaxing properties of CBD can have a not-so-desired effect on your Delta-8. Rather than enhancing the experience, CBD can actually negate the desired psychoactive effects of Delta-8.

CBG is a great alternative because of its energizing effects, meaning you can enjoy the high of Delta-8 without feeling sleepy or foggy. By understanding which cannabinoids should be combined to achieve the desired effect, consumers can achieve optimal effects.

The Importance of Quality

Every detail of the process is important, from the isolation process to choosing the flower. This is because if not handled properly, the consumer can be exposed to harmful chemicals.

At Vitality, we understand the importance of quality. That’s why we only provide high-quality, lab-tested Delta-8 THC products that are certified not to exceed the legal limit of 0.3% THC.
