In the Beginning

Delta 8 THC is in all hemp flower, but only in trace amounts. In order to get it as an oil extract to spray on other flowers and to make distillate it must be extracted from multiple hemp flowers.  This effect helps the user gain as many benefits as possible by consuming multiple cannabinoids from the hemp plant.  This increases the overall health and wellness of the user.  The extracts can be used to create an entire line of Delta 8 products including Delta 8 carts which are becoming popular across the board.  Since it takes the extract from many hemp flowers, it can be a bit costly, but it is a product well worth it.

Delta 8 THC has becoming increasing popular as the hemp community and beyond realized the unique benefits of this particular cannabinoid. They are effective for health benefits as well as effects in a modulated high without the aftermath of paranoia and anxiety and losing several days in a couch lock. Even though the states with legalized marijuana are resisting the sale of Delta 8 flower products, the excitement over this product continues to grow.

Delta 8 Flower Extracts Flow — Introduction

Are you asking right now, “why are Delta 8 flower extracts such a big deal?” Unless this is your first time of hearing about then you are at the right place so we will still tell you why they are such a big deal. This is not to convince you that you should go buy up a supply of this unique Delta 8 THC cannabinoid that can make your life better, healthier, and more in tune.

Without a doubt, the most vital thing to know about Delta 8 THC is that it provides significant health benefits and recreational benefits like its sibling, Delta 9-THC.  But here is the difference, Delta 8 THC has less intense effects whether used for health or for recreation.  Delta 8 THC provides a greatly reduced high with less paranoia and anxiety afterwards and the individual is very much in the present day. Delta 9 THC give a psychoactive high that results in losing numerous days in a couchlock and paranoia and anxiety.

Introducing Interaction with CB1 Receptors

We know all about the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) and all the CB1 and CB2 receptors which are involved.  However, something you may not know is that Delta 9 THC interacts with the CB1 receptors which are mainly in the brain, nervous system and some in the immune system. All the other cannabinoids that we talk about with the 3-letter abbreviations like CBD, CNC, CBC, etc. generally only interact with the CB2 receptors. But now that Delta 8 THC is rising to the top like cream on a gallon of milk gives another opportunity to effect change, health and protection to the CB1 receptors.

Delta 8 THC is more stable and less potent, so this is another card in the positive deck for these extracts. If it is more stable that also means it lasts longer with potent but not overwhelming effects. What a great option for people to start moving towards.See the source image

Delta 8 Flower Extracts Flow – Exactly What Are They?

First, we look at the cannabinoid, Delta 8 to better understand the extracts and all the forms they take. In this section, we are going to take a microscope to Delta 8 THC. You may be among the multitudes that simply referred to THC as one of the 3-letter cannabinoids such as CBC, CBN, CBG, CBD but now we know that is inaccurate. There is Delta 9 THC and there is Delta 8 THC or in other words it is necessary to put some identifiers on the THC cannabinoid.

Here, in this section, we are focusing on the combination of Delta 8 and the flower extracts and all the angles of it.  The ins and outs of Delta 9 THC are not important here except for the use of comparison. Delta 8 THC is extracted from the hemp flower and used for a great many things. Since Delta 8 is a trace cannabinoid, many flowers will supply the amount of delta 8 to create the extracts for the consumer to use.  There are divisions in all things Delta 8 THC so let’s look at them:

  • Delta 8 THC
  • Delta 8 flower
  • Delta 8 extracts

Delta 8 Flower Extracts Flow — Defining all Aspects of Delta 8 THC

Merriam Webster Dictionary says: “Delta 8 [THC] is a psychoactive cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant.” This is partially true but not completely accurate. Delta 8, because of its chemical position on the hemp chemical structure, it is less psychoactive so much milder and allows the user to remain “present, focused and productive but energized. Delta 8, the cannabinoid used to make the extracts, is in the cannabis plant as well as in the hemp because hemp is one branch of the cannabis family.

Let’s look at another misnomer that says well-known cannabinoids include tetrahydrocannabinol or THC and cannabidiol CBD. Partially true but there are two THC cannabinoids – Delta 8 and Delta 9. However, to be clear, only Delta 8 and CBD are used to create the many extracts.

  • Cannabis is hemp and marijuana
  • THC is Delta 8 and Delta 9

The Extracts Definition of the “Flow”

Delta 8 THC is naturally occurring in trace amounts in the hemp flower. So, it is sometimes made from CBD derived from the hemp.  It is then converted to Delta 8 THC through “isomerization.”  This method is a unique conversion process decades old. The continuation of the extraction process is similar to the creation of CBD products. Manufacturers make sure that they use hemp derived Delta 8 because then for sure it is legal.

Delta 8 Extraction Process #1 — There are a few different ways to go about extracting, isolating, synthesizing, and refining Delta 8. After selecting the hemp flower strain that you want, break it down and run it through something referred to as a fractional distillation process. With a thin film distillation and the application of variations of temperature and pressure to isolate Delta 8 THC. This is an effective manner to create a product over 80% Delta-8. If you want a higher percentage of extract, it can be refined to get 99% Delta 8.

Delta 8 Extraction Process #2 – There is another method of extracting the Delta 8 from the hemp flower. It is called the isomerization process. This method converts CBD and CBG into Delta 8 flower extract. This is an effective way to create the Delta 8 flower extract which continue to be additive and solvent-free. It also tests 0.3% or less in Delta 9 THC and still a high percentage of Delta 8.

Delta 8 Extracts Flow with Understanding of CBGA to Delta 8

Hemp contains many cannabinoids but there is one cannabinoid that has a title none other has. CBGA is that cannabinoid and its title is “the mother of all cannabinoids.” The reason for that is during the maturation process this cannabinoid “splits” to become THCA and some other cannabinoids.  Then THCA converts to Delta 9 THC through a form of decarboxylation or heat exposure during the hemp plant grows and matures.  Now we are closer to what will become the cannabinoid to get the extracts and to put them in different forms for your consumption.

Delta-8 THC is usually found in quantities less than 1% so it takes many hemp flowers to extract enough for concentrate.  A cannabinoid researcher by the name of Raphael Mechoulam, discovered that Delta 8 THC exists as a CBD isomer.  This is a bit technical so let’s make it short. Basically, it means that the CBD molecule can be rearranged to create Delta 8 THC. This researcher, Mechoulam has a patent now on how to convert CBD into Delta 8 THC. This is another piece of the puzzle for the Delta 8 flower extract to take place.

The Legal Side of the Flow

Hemp continues to be embroiled in “is it legal, is it not?” Delta 8 flower extracts are made from the legal Delta 8. In the 2018 Farm Bill, all compounds in the hemp plant were legalized except Delta 9 THC unless it is 0.3% or less. So, on the basis of the 2018 Farm Bill, Delta 8 THC and all the Delta 8 products are legal. There are some states which are holding out in legalizing Delta 8 just as they held out in legalizing hemp in 2018.

Delta 8 come from a cannabinoid that is a trace cannabinoid and of no consequence so the reason that the 2018 Farm Bill only limited the amount of Delta 9 THC to 0.3%. So, with the advent of the research which showed so many great effects and benefits regarding Delta 8 THC, more questions surfaced about its legality.  Delta 8 THC is legal in all but a handful of states such as these:

  • Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas,
  • Colorado,
  • Delaware, Idaho, Iowa,
  • Mississippi, Montana,
  • Rhode Island, and Utah.

The Effects Side of the “Flow”

The Delta 8 in the extracts sports a great many hemp flower strains which dictates what type of experience you will have. Broadly speaking, the hemp strains are indica (relaxing and calming) and sativa (energizing, focused and productive).

Delta 8 flower extracts in whatever form you consume them are allowing you to experience a modified high.  This modified high allows you to remain focused and not intoxicated and able to complete your days tasks well in control.

The hemp pre-roll made with Delta 8 THC will usually have suggested dosage and reaction time, allowing the user to plan better on the modified high start time.  First-time users particularly are delighted with the Delta 8 products, but this first-time user must also use caution because it could affect different people differently according to weight, height age, etc.

Delta 8 Flower Extracts Flow — The Benefits Side

Delta 8 THC offers a plethora of effects benefits and health benefits to anyone who consumes it.  From the smooth and relaxing high to the health benefit that supports healthy brain function. Why this is so extraordinarily important is because most of the cannabinoids in the hemp flower interact with the CB2 receptors in the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) that are dispersed through the body. But the Delta 8 THC cannabinoid interacts with the CB1 receptors which are principally placed in the brain and the nervous system.

Delta 8 THC cannabinoid also has neuroprotective properties which could help protect individuals from all those neurodegenerative conditions. Delta 8 flower extracts flow may help stimulate your appetite and eliminate nausea in children and adults undergoing chemotherapy.

The Consuming Side of the “Flow”

This section is all setting the stage for all the ways to consume the D8 extract products. One of the more popular ways to consume hemp and now Delta 8 flower extracts is by way of Delta 8 hemp rolls as well. Dr. Strains CBD has these “bad boys” in regular hemp pre-rolls and Delta 8 hemp pre-rolls. They are in a variety of flower strains and that makes the hemp pre-rolls an additionally attractive option to smoke for just the effects but then there are the health benefits on top of that.

The Delta 8 Products

Delta 8 Hemp Pre-rolls Delta 8 flower in the Delta 8 hemp pre-roll is usually measured at a half-gram.  The Delta 8 flower is also responsible for the Delta 8 THC carts.  The Delta 8 cart is screwed into a battery-powered pen device to deliver a fast-acting modified high because all the cannabinoids are delivered directly to the lungs and to the bloodstream. This gives the users results in about 5 to 10 minutes.

Delta 8 THC Gummies – These may be the most fun way to dose with hemp flower and they also come in a wide variety of flavors. Now with the advent of D8 flower extracts that make a variety of products, D8 gummies are one of the most popular.  These gummies range in strength as well and they are convenient to carry with you to work, etc.  Gummies do have a wide range of a reaction time from 45 minutes to 3 hours because if you chew them up, they have to move through your digestive system. An alternative method is to bite into them then let them dissolve under your tongue and in your oral cavity in general.

One of the best methods to consume delta-8-THC is via extracts. Delta 8 extracts are a pure form of Delta 8 and it also contains many natural terpenes to make it full of effects and health benefits.” Extracts can be used by loading into a dab rig or to a bong as well as being inhaled.

Delta 8 Extracts Flow — Defining Delta 8 and Its Extracting

To explain Delta 8 flower extracts flow it is important to explain hemp and hemp flower. Hemp is a centuries old crop and actually, in some countries it holds the title of the oldest cultivated crop. And the ancients have always known of the health benefits this amazing plant held but now the curious scientists and researchers are diligent in finding even more unique products. Today, the newest, most potent and exciting product is anything which is sprayed or infused with the Delta 8 cannabinoid.

The hemp flower has many, many cannabinoids among other natural compounds like terpenes, flavonoids and enzymes. Delta 8 used to make the extracts is one of the many cannabinoids, but we have never heard much about it because it is considered as a trace cannabinoid. The effects and the benefits were so significant that the researchers figured out how to isolate the Delta 8 cannabinoid so that Delta 8 flower extracts could be made possible.

 Lookin’ into Delta 8

Talk about THC is common because it is one of the cannabinoids that requires testing to keep it below 0.3% or less in the hemp flower.  However, terminology is important to have accurate information.  There are siblings – Delta 9 THC and Delta 8 THC. Yes, there are two THCs so be sure you get accurate information.  It is important to remember that Delta 8 THC is the cannabinoid used for these extracts, not Delta 9 THC.

Delta 9 THC is intoxicating, addictive with a psychoactive high; Delta 8 THC is not addictive or intoxicating and even though the user may sense a high, it will be modified, and user will remain focused and productive.  D8 flower extracts are made with Delta 8, so the extracts and concentrates are not intoxicating.

Let’s Make Delta 8

In order to make D8 extracts, it is important to have a method to extract and process the Delta 8, so it is a chemical free as possible. Above we spoke of the two methods of processing the Delta 8 flower extract but let’s look at it in more detail.

Since the CBD cannabinoid material is more common and in greater concentration than Delta 8, CBD isolate material is used.  From this CBD isolate material, the next step is to transform it into Delta 8 THC so that D8 extracts can then be produced.  The CBD isolate material is converted to Delta 8 through a process called “isomerization.”  Isomerization occurs when CBD is dissolved in a type of acid. An acid most commonly used is glacial acetic acid.

Glacial Acetic Acid

The glacial acetic acid first converts a portion of the CBD to Delta 9 THC but when the solution is let set for at least 72 hours over half of the CBD material will become Delta 8 THC. Remember, Delta 8 THC, in nature, occurs after Delta 9 THC degrades.

The next step involves refining the solution so that unwanted materials and leftover acids are removed leaving a pure and potent Delta 8 THC oil.  Now you have the oil to make a variety of extracts and in a variety of forms like carts and hemp pre-rolls.  The Delta 8 flower extract can also be mixed with various carrier oils, or terpenes or additional cannabinoids or flavor to create unique Delta 8 products.  It is also important to include a batch testing step to verify potency and safety as well.

Delta 8 Flower Extracts Flow – Is it Delta 8 Oil or Delta 8 Distillate?

There are two ways to access the Delta 8 needed to make the extracts. Delta 8 THC oil is created from the trace cannabinoid, Delta 8. Except for Delta 9 THC, Delta 8 is the most potent of all the cannabinoids. So, on the heels of that, it is the most desired of the cannabinoids.  These D8 extracts offer a number of benefits because they can be multiplied into numerous products. Some are more potent than others and the user may not know his or her tolerance of any of the potencies.

Defining the Delta 8 Oil Factor

The storm that is traveling around the country raining down effects and benefits in all kinds of hemp flower products and especially ones with the Delta 8 is growing in magnitude if anything. The Delta 8 oil is one of the extracts and used to create the much-desired Delta 8 flower. The process of extracting the oil was explained earlier but not the many uses it has as well as benefits and effects that come from the use of D8 flower extracts.

Most vendors now have the Delta 8 hemp flower in their inventory. This would not be possible but for Delta 8 oil to spray the hemp flower. Today is only the beginning of the explosive growth of this unique cannabinoid that graces so many of the different Delta 8 flower extracts.

Delta 8 Flower Extracts Flow to Define the Delta 8 Distillate

Delta 8 Distillate is created from the unique cannabinoid that naturally occurs in trace amounts in hemp. The Delta 8 and products like Delta 8 hemp flower extracts can provide a euphoric sensation of a high along with other benefits such as appetite stimulation for patients receiving cancer treatment. The reason for this is that Delta 8 interacts with the CB1 receptors of the Endocannabinoid System in the user’s body.

Delta 8 distillate is often used to make smokable extracts like shatter and crumble. D8 flower extracts in the form of distillate also can be added to CBD-infused gummies, CBD capsules and tinctures along with other products.

Even though it is ingestible, it is of thick and sticky consistence.  Because of this many prefer to take it after it is infused in other products. These other products could be like gummies, etc. D8 flower extracts are as varied in uses as they are in benefits and effects, and they are becoming widely available.

Delta 8 flower extracts flow

Delta 8 Flower Extracts Flow – Is it Delta 8 Crumble or Delta 8 Shatter?

The D8 extract that is referred to as crumble is dryer than shatter.  However, it is still moist because of the high profile of terpenes that give the user a flavorful experience. Another of the extracts is named shatter because of it looking like shattered glass. It is also another way to consume a potent and effective product.  This product gives benefits and effects like so many other Delta 8 flower extracts. There is another extract to consider in this grouping. It will be the Delta 8 Crumble that many are enjoying when they need a chill and a buzz. Remember, however, that Delta 8 does give a modified high.  This high does not knock out the user for multiple days and leaves you anxious and paranoid.

This particular one of the D8 flower extracts is made more powerful and potent because of the combination of cannabinoids. But more importantly for Delta 8 Crumble is how it can be used. It usually has the consistency of dry cookie dough, so this makes it very easy to work with.  Many use it for dabbing onto a dab ring or to top off a favorite hemp flower bowl.  But there are other uses like rolling your own hemp flower joint or blunt. All the D8 extracts are unusually versatile in the ways it can be used as well as the effects and benefits that the user will enjoy.

Delta 8 Flower Extracts Flow Discusses What Else is There

But there is something else. To produce Delta 8 Crumble, the heat used is much lower than for other products. Do you know what this means?  More of the terpenes are preserved so the user can expect an experience with more effects, smoother and with an uplift that will excite the best. This D8 flower extract will take your favorite flower to the next level.

Examining Delta 8 Shatter

Shatter is a type of the D8 flower extract made by extracting potent compounds from the hemp flower.  We have already discussed how Delta 8 is a trace cannabinoid.  The user only receives a fraction of its benefits and effects when smoking a hemp pre-roll. However, shatter, as a D8 extract, provides a concentrated form of this potent substance. It has the potential of containing up to 75% of Delta 8.

If these particular Delta 8 extracts are new to you, then let’s look at how you can use it to the best advantage. Shatter has a very different texture and as its name implies, it resembles glass because it is rigid and hard. Also, Shatter has to burn or vaporize in order for the release of cannabinoids. Because of all these elements, vaporizing Delta 8 Shatter in a wax or concentrate Vaporizer is the best way to use it. When you set them to a high temperature, they effectively vaporize Delta 8 Shatter.  Since pulmonary administration is the fastest way to enjoy both effects and benefits, the flavorful hit with provide you with a particularly pleasant experience.

The other advantage is that vaping is much easier on the lungs than even smoking any type of hemp flower product. Another way to use the extracts is in the form of Shatter is by way of a Dab Rig, heating a Quartz nail and the application of a Shatter dab.
