Delta 8 Flower

What is Delta 8?

Delta 8 is a close analog to regular delta-9 THC that produces milder effects. Delta 8 imparts a clear-headed, functional buzz that some refer to as a businessperson’s high. You may think of Delta 8 as “THC Light.” You can go about your workday with a sense of relaxation and a shift in perspective without worrying about heavy sedation or intense psychoactive effects.

How to Store Delta 8 Hemp Flower

You can store your Delta 8 hemp flowers in their original packaging, which we’ve optimized for longer-term storage. However, you will need to keep your Delta 8 buds in a cool, dark place away from any light or heat source. Sunlight and excessive heat degrades cannabinoids and can make your Delta 8 hemp flowerless potent and tasty.

Everything You Need to Know About Delta 8 Flower

How are Delta 8 and Delta-9 THC Different?

Delta 8 and delta-9 THC have remarkably similar chemical structures, except for the placement of one double bond. Regular delta-9 has the double bond on the ninth atom in its carbon chain, giving the cannabinoid a form that can make a powerful connection with the brain’s CB1 receptors. When the double bond moves to the eighth carbon, forming Delta 8, the molecule can no longer make such a strong link. The result is a mellower, more clear-headed, and functional experience.

We’ve published an entire article on the differences between delta-8 and delta-9 THC in our blog to give you more information.

How Can I Use Delta 8 Flower?

Delta 8 hemp flowers are incredibly versatile. For a quick pick-me-up, you can smoke Delta 8 flower in a pipe, joint, blunt, or bong, just like any other buds. Dry herb vaporizers also offer fast delivery along with enhanced flavor and smoothness.

Can I Legally Buy and Possess Delta 8 in the United States?

In 2018, Congress passed the landmark Farm Bill, legalizing hemp products with less than .3% delta-9 THC. Hemp flowers, including those that feature Delta 8, remain federally legal in the United States.

However, some states maintain stricter laws regarding hemp flowers or products containing Delta 8. We’ve published a series of articles so that you can find out if hemp flower is legal in your state, but we still suggest that you consult with your local laws before purchasing Delta 8 hemp flower.

Will Delta 8 Flower Trigger a Positive Result on a Drug Test?

If you’re required to submit to drug screenings, you should refrain from consuming Delta 8 products. Since Delta 8 is one of the compounds formed as regular THC metabolizes, it may be a specific target for drug tests. Urine screenings can detect THC metabolites consumed 30 days prior, and more sensitive hair or nail examinations cover a range of 90 days or more.

Is Houston Cannabis Club Delta 8 Flower Lab-Tested?

Here at Houston Cannabis Club, we pride ourselves on offering some of the highest-quality hemp flower on the market. That’s why we send each and every batch of our flower to an unbiased, third-party lab for a complete panel of tests.

While our organic growing methods ensure that our buds are 100% free of pesticides, herbicides, and heavy metals, we also want to test for potency and ensure our hemp is completely compliant with federal regulations. We’ve provided links to our most current Certificates of Analysis on our website.

Does Delta 8 Produce Any Side Effects?

Delta 8 may produce milder versions of the same side effects that regular THC causes, especially in higher dosages. Although Delta 8 is typically well-tolerated, some people experience unwanted effects, such as:

  • Fatigue
  • Dry eyes and mouth
  • Increased appetite
  • Temporarily raised blood pressure
  • Anxiety
  • Reduced intraocular pressure

As with all of our products, we recommend that you consult with your physician before consuming Delta 8 flowers, especially if you regularly take prescription medications. Since cannabinoid research is still in the early stages, women who may be pregnant or nursing should refrain from consuming Delta 8 flower.

Are Delta 8 Effects Similar to What CBD Does?

Although CBD and Delta 8 are both cannabinoids found in hemp plants, they interact in different ways with endocannabinoid receptors. CBD stimulates ECS receptors indirectly, while Delta 8 creates a weak but direct bond with CB1 receptors in the central nervous system. Both compounds impart uplifting peaceful feelings, but Delta 8 also offers mellow psychoactive effects. Delta 8 is well-suited for people searching for a more heady experience but don’t want to deal with the sometimes overwhelming psychoactivity of regular cannabis.

Does Houston Cannabis Club Sell Any Other Delta 8 Products?

Yes. HCC offers delta-8 vape cartridges in a host of strain-specific flavors. Each cartridge features 1000 milligrams of Delta 8 distillate and natural hemp terpenes.

How Old Do I Need to Be to Purchase Delta 8 Flowers?
