With Vitality CBD introducing our new Delta 8 flower line, what do you need to know? We will be covering all of the important details in this post, so be sure to keep reading if you want to learn more about our organic products.
What is Delta 8?
Delta 8 is a compound found within cannabis; it is a minor cannabinoid, like CBG, CBN, AND CBC. It reacts with the CB1 and CB2 receptors, which is similar to THC. However, Delta 8 connects to some slightly different locations within your system- which makes a huge difference.
Delta 8 also occurs in naturally smaller amounts than Delta 9. That means that any Delta 8 you take is going to be much less potent, depending on the form of consumption.
It has a similar effect to THC, which provides relief from certain symptoms and a euphoric effect. THC is actually the Delta 9 cannabinoid strain. Since Delta 8 and 9 are chemically similar, they have many of the same properties.
However, Delta 8 is less potent than Delta 9, or THC. Delta 8 is also legal in more states, allowing many more people to use it. Still, organic Delta 8 flowers can be difficult to find- luckily for you, we are starting to offer them!
How Is It Made?
The Delta 8 strain of THC is found in the hemp plant. It occurs there naturally and has similar effects to THC. This particular strain is less potent because it binds to the endocannabinoid system differently than the THC we are used to.
It still gives you many of the same effects, but it “feels” different. Many people prefer Delta 8 over Delta 9 THC since it gives them many of the same benefits, without feelings of anxiety.
Hemp plants have small amounts of Delta 8 in them. In concentrates, Delta 8 is extracted from the plants for use. It can also be added to flowers easily. Some companies prefer to make their Delta 8 flower like this, since hemp naturally only contains small amounts of the compound.
You can feel confident that our Delta 8 flower is organic and natural. We always make sure to only offer the highest quality of products- so we always take care and spend a lot of time while making it for you.
Benefits of Delta 8 Flower
There are many potential benefits that can come from Delta 8 flower. Some of them may include:
It Provides a Smoother High
If you are looking for recreational uses, Delta 8 may provide a smoother high than Delta 9. Since Delta 9 THC is extremely potent, it can feel much too intense for some people. It may also give some users anxiety or make them feel very tired.
Those using Delta 8 are looking for alternatives, so they do not have a negative reaction. Many who have used this strain of flower say that it provides a much better experience. They feel more relaxed. This may be because Delta 8 is less potent, although this is still being further studied at the moment.
For anyone looking for a more relaxing effect from their flower, our organic Delta 8 is a great option.
It’s an Appetite Stimulant
Delta 8 can be better as an appetite stimulant than Delta 9. Since you are less likely to feel anxious, you may notice you are more hungry. Delta 8 can be taken in smaller amounts and still make you have more of an appetite than Delta 9 will.
It’s More Relaxing
Overall, Delta 8 is much more therapeutic than regular THC. That means you will experience more of the benefits, without the psychoactive effect distracting from them.
Delta 8 can make you feel relaxed and is not psychoactive. Users feel that this allows them to focus better. This compound binds to your CB1 receptors in the endocannabinoid system, which stops you from feeling anxious.
So, if you have tried traditional Delta 9 THC and felt more anxious while using it, Delta 8 may be a better alternative for you. Many people choose to use it in order to manage their anxiety levels and promote a relaxed focus.
It Relieves Pain
This compound is also known for its ability to provide people with pain relief. If you are looking for alternative methods to treat chronic pain, Delta 8 could be an option for you. It reduces inflammation and reduces your body’s ability to sense pain.
It does this by providing you with glutamate, serotonin, and dopamine- which control several different functions. Delta 8 uses these hormones to reduce the amount of pain that your body can sense.
Delta 8 may also be able to reduce your nausea. It has antiemetic properties, which can cure that sickly feeling and does not have side effects that come with it. In short, Delta 8 can prevent vomiting and help you feel at ease.
It is Fast Acting
One of the best parts of Delta 8 is how fast it works. You can receive all of these benefits quickly, providing you with relief from symptoms. They are easy to use, especially if you are familiar with hemp or CBD products.
Overall, our new line of Delta 8 flower is sure to work quickly. The compound binds to the systems in your body right away, allowing the benefits to start appearing quickly as well.
How to Use Delta 8 Flower
Delta 8 can be found in a concentrated as well as a flower form. Both can give you the benefits that we have already listed above. You have the options of vaping or smoking, depending on the form of Delta 8 that you have at home.
If you are using Delta 8 in a concentrated form, it is important to realize that you only need a few small drops. Concentrates are much more potent than flowers, so you will need to use them in much smaller doses. Still, a smaller amount will give you the same benefits.
Delta 8 flowers look like Delta 9 ones- they can even be used in the same ways. You can find several different organic options and flavors in our line.
Is Delta 8 THC Legal?
Yes. Delta 8 THC is legal in all of the states except for the following:
- Rhode Island
The way Delta 8 was sourced also impacts the legality of it. Delta 9 is illegal in some states, so if it is converted into Delta 9, it is still illegal. However, naturally occurring Delta 8 is not illegal to use in most of the United States.
So, if your Delta 8 was converted from CBD made from hemp- it is legal due to the 2018 Farm Bill. In this bill, any derivative of hemp or CBD hemp is legal as long as the finished product contains less than 0.3% Delta 9. Which, Delta 8 flower will not go over that limit.
To summarize, Delta 8 is sourced from hemp- not cannabis. That is why it might be legal in your state, even if cannabis products are not. Many states do not have laws talking about Delta 8 THC specifically, at least for the moment.
Does Delta 8 Appear on a Drug Test?
Yes, it does. Delta 8 is a form of THC, so it should show up on a drug test. Any product you use that has THC can result in a positive test. If you receive regular drug testing or know that you will need to take a test for THC in the near future, you will want to use one of our Organic CBD products instead, as they do not contain any THC.
Delta 8 or CBD?
If you are trying to decide between using Delta 8 or CBD, there are a few factors to consider. Delta 8 has more in common with THC than CBD. It is more similar chemically and will give you more of the effects we associate with THC.
However, CBD may still provide you with several medical benefits, without making you feel high. If you do not want to feel intoxicated or have to take THC tests for any reason, then CBD would be better for you to use.
Still, many people are trying out Delta 8 for the first time as its popularity grows and knowledge of this compound spreads. It can give you a high feeling, but not nearly as much as Delta 9 THC will. Overall, both of these options can provide you with several benefits. Many people will have both options available to them at home, depending on their symptoms and why they are using the products.
We hope that you browse through our new line of Organic Delta 8 Flower when you have the chance. There’s a variety of options for you to choose from. If you have any questions, be sure to reach out to us. We would love to assist you with anything that you need.
