You may have heard of hemp and marijuana being different in that marijuana has Delta-9 THC, but what about Delta-8? If marijuana contains Delta-9, and hemp contains CBD, which plant contains Delta-8? Well, the short answer is, a little bit of both! In this article, we want to break down Delta-8 in flower form and roll it up into a way that you can fully understand.
Delta-8 THC Hemp and Marijuana
Believe it or not, Delta-8 is found in both hemp and marijuana plants. However, like CBN, Delta-8 is found in low amounts. As it stands, Delta-8 THC naturally found in cannabis is typically below one percent. It is incredibly rare to find a plant that has a greater amount than one percent Delta-8 THC. That being said, companies are still selling “Delta-8 THC Cannabis” that are infused with Delta-8 THC distillate oil to increase the Delta-8 THC potency. Both hemp and marijuana are infused with Delta-8 oil in order to create Delta-8 THC flower. Sadly, we have not found nor has anyone created a naturally growing highly potent Delta-8 THC cannabis strain. We will be sure to be on the lookout and let you know when we find it!
How to Make Delta 8 Cannabis
As previously mentioned, Delta-8 THC cannabis isn’t grown, it’s made. Delta 8 cannabis starts with hemp or marijuana. In most cases, it is made with industrial hemp. Once the hemp is dried and cured, it is coated in Delta-8 distillate oil through various methods. The most common way, is by spraying the flower with the Delta 8 oil. If you didn’t already know, this Delta-8 distillate is the same oil we use as the base for our products such as our Delta-8 MCT oil and pods. To find out how Delta-8 THC oil is made, check out or other articles that discuss how we create our products.
Once the hemp is coated with Delta-8 oil, it is dried once more before it is packed and labeled. Knowing this, you can imagine smoking Delta 8 flower can be a sticky situation.
Have you Ever Tried Delta 8 Flower?
Now you know how Delta-8 THC cannabis is made. Have you ever tried it? How was your experience? Many consumers report that the high from Delta 8 flower is not as long lasting as edibles and vapes. Additionally, users also note that vaping and eating Delta-8 THC products are more enjoyable than smoking Delta 8 cannabis. Is this the same case for you? If the different products were ranked by how long the high from Delta 8 lasts, we would place edibles in first, and Delta 8 flower last, with vapes being in the middle.
Delta 8 Flower Vs Concentrates
If you have tried Delta 8 flower, you may be wondering why isn’t it at Mints. At Mints, we believe that the best quality high from Delta-8 is through edibles, or our concentrated pods. When compared to Delta 8 flower, our Delta 8 pods come in several flavors and all have distinctive highs. Lastly, Delta 8 flower is difficult to ration.
