What Is Delta 8 THC Flower?
Delta 8 flower is a CBD flower coated with concentrated delta 8 THC distillate.
Cannabis doesn’t naturally produce hemp flower that’s rich in delta 8 THC. Manufacturers make concentrated amounts of this compound in a lab. They typically use hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) and catalysts to rearrange the chemical makeup of the CBD molecule and create delta 8 THC (isomerization).
Delta 8 tetrahydrocannabinol or delta 8 THC is an intoxicating cannabinoid that occurs naturally in the hemp plant. This cannabinoid is a minor compound formed in the hemp flower in minuscule amounts of less than 1%. The flower of the hemp plant forms trichomes — tiny, crystalline-like, delicate outgrows — that create cannabinoids and terpenes.
Converting CBD into delta 8 is possible because they’re isomers — both compounds contain the same number of atoms in their structure or 21 carbon atoms, 30 hydrogen atoms, and 2 oxygen atoms (C21H30O2). Although they exhibit vastly different effects on the body, they are chemically similar because they have the same molecular formula.

How to Use the Delta 8 Flower?
There are three main ways to use delta 8 flower, including smoking, vaping, and edibles.
Smoking is the most popular method of delta 8 flower consumption. You can get custom-made pre-rolls or blunts or create your own roll with ground flower and hemp rolling paper. Burning the flower with a lighter immediately activates the cannabinoid thanks to the direct heat, so the effects are felt a few minutes after the first puff.
One of the disadvantages of smoking hemp flower is the loss of some of the cannabinoids and terpenes due to unadjusted heat.
To vape hemp flower, you’ll need a dry herb vaporizer instead of an oil vaporizer. Dry herb vapes are typically available as a vape pen — a small vaping device that’s easy to use, adjustable, and portable. Unlike smoking, dry herb vape pens heat and evaporate the cannabinoids and terpenes at the ideal temperature that won’t burn but activate them.
Did you know that you can use delta 8 flower for cooking? From brownies to delta 8-infused pasta, you will find many delicious recipes for any strain. Simply sprinkle the ground flower into the dish, adjust the temperature, and you’ve made yourself some delicious delta 8 edibles.
Types of Delta 8 THC Flower
When discussing types of delta 8 THC flower, we’re talking about the typical classification of cannabis flower: sativa, indica, and hybrid.
The “Strain” Classification
Hemp flower is Cannabis sativa L., so most strains are sativa strains and hybrids — rarely there’s an indica hemp flower strain. This is different from marijuana, which can exist as sativa, indica, and hybrid.
Sativa or sativa-dominant strains are Cannabis sativa strains known for their uplifting and energizing effects. They are used by people who want to be productive, mentally stimulated, and have clarity throughout the entire day. Most sativa strains are considered more suitable for the daytime because of the effects they evoke.
Indica or indica-dominant strains are more typical for marijuana because they contain high CBD and average amounts of THC content. Indica strains feature relaxing qualities and a whole-body “high” that’s felt more in the body than the mind. Indica strains are used during the nighttime because of their relaxing, calming, and stress-relieving effects that may help with sleep.
Hybrid strains possess both indica and sativa qualities, which depends on the parent strains. The effects from hybrid strains can vary from happy and euphoric to uplifting and relaxing. One of the best ways to determine the potential effect of a hybrid strain is to look at its lineage and see where it comes from.
As you may notice, this classification is not set in stone with hemp flower. Sativa cannabis strains are typically high in THC and low in CBD, while all hemp strains contain low THC and high CBD levels. Although widely used for marketing purposes, the “strain” classification is slowly but surely being replaced with the “chemovar” classification of cannabis.
The “Chemovar” Classification
The chemovar approach focuses on the chemical composition of the plant, which calls for a full chemical analysis of the hemp variety. Based on this approach, we get an accurate picture of the type of cannabis variety and its potential effects, which can be divided into:
- Type 1: High THC cannabis
- Type 2: High CBD cannabis
- Type 3: Hybrid — a combination of THC/CBD
Based on the cultivar classification, hemp is type 2 cannabis or high CBD cannabis with a THC concentration of less than 0.3%. But, to better determine its effects, we need the chemical analysis of cannabinoids and terpenes, which greatly boost the strains’ sedative or uplifting properties.
