THC Delta 8 Infused Hemp Flower

The popularity of Delta8 throughout the cannabis community is consistently increasing, and for good reason. Delta9 Lite or Diet Delta 9 as it is known by some is seen by many as an offshoot of traditional THC. The truth, however, is that Delta 8 hemp flower is unique in its own right and offers a host of benefits that are completely unique to the product itself. While some people are just discovering Delta 8 Infused Hemp Flower, others say they’re late to the party. Delta 8 has been around for ages! You’ll see why more and more people are opting for this cannabis derivative as we go into further detail about THC Delta 8 Infused Hemp Flower. Before we get too far into the weeds, however, it’s important to cover the basics about cannabis and hemp flowers.

What is the Cannabis Plant? Understanding Cannabis and Hemp Flowers

The cannabis plant is more than just a plant – in fact, it is a plant genus that yields three species of flowering plants: Cannabis Sativa, Cannabis Indica, and Cannabis Ruderalis. If  you’re a CBD or THC user, you may already be familiar with Cannabis sativa and Cannabis Indica, as the two of these are used to produce both recreational and medical marijuana. Cannabis ruderalis is less frequently farmed because it has a lower THC content and small stature.

Hemp plants contain high levels of cannabidiol (CBD) as well as other cannabinoids that block the effects of THC (the psychoactive element that gets you “high.”). Hemp therefore has low levels of THC and high levels of CBD to promote healing and other physical and mental benefits absent of the psychoactive ones.

The Differences Between Cannabis Flower and Hemp Flower

Hemp and marijuana come from the same plant species, which is Cannabis sativa, but the concentrations of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) within each of these differ. Hemp is low in THC whereas marijuana is high in THC. 

In addition to their chemical makeup, the uses for cannabis flower vs hemp flower also differ.  Hemp is primarily grown for industrial use and is often incorporated into oils, topical ointments, and as a fiber material for clothing and construction. Marijuana is more  traditionally used in the recreational and medicinal sense. 

Delta 8 THC and Cannabis

Having a general understanding of the structure of the cannabis plant will set you up well to grasp how Delta 8 THC factors into all of this. Delta 8 THC is a cannabinoid that is extracted from the cannabis plant. It is primarily derived from hemp as opposed to marijuana.


Delta 8 THC flowers are specific cannabis flowers with a significantly lower concentration of Delta 9 THC, aka the psychoactive compound that delivers a “high” or psychotropic effect. Still, Delta 8 flowers aren’t without their perks. Rather than THC, Delta 8 hemp flowers contain tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), which is the precursor to THC. In simplest terms, this is the compound you get before THC becomes THC.

How Delta 8 THC Hemp Flower Works

When smoking or vaporizing traditional marijuana products, a process known as decarboxylation occurs. This involves carboxylic acids losing one Carbon dioxide atom to produce THC and various terpenes. With Delta 8 THC, however, the decarboxylation process does not occur. There is no Carbon dioxide loss, which means there is no formation of the psychoactive Delta 9 THC.

Will Delta 8 THC Hemp Flower Get You High?

That is the question everyone wants to know. Delta 8 THC products are mildly psychoactive but much less so than Delta 9 THC products. Delta 8 THC hemp flowers get their name of “Diet Delta 9” because of the less potent high individuals get from smoking the product.


Potential Benefits of Delta 8 THC Hemp Flower

Not only does Delta 8 THC stand to offer lighter, calmer psychoactive properties than its Delta 9 counterparts, but it may also be a strong contender for several physical benefits. Some say that Delta8 THC may be beneficial in the following ways: 

  • Delta 8 THC may help reduce intraocular pressure in the eyes (IOP), making it a possible treatment option for glaucoma
  • Delta 8 could be a useful tool for conditions related to PTSD
  • Delta 8 THC Hemp flower may act as a decongestant 
  • Delta 8 could help with libido
  • It may be an appetite stimulant
  • Some experience temporary pain relief with Delta 8 THC

The Legality of Delta 8 THC Hemp Flower

Whether or not Delta 8 THC is legal has been a hotly debated topic for several years. Under the 2018 US Farm Bill, all CBD products sold online within the US can be legally distributed so long as their Delta 9 THC content does not exceed 0.3%. Under these parameters, Delta 8 with concentrations of 0.3% or less would be considered legal. This decision was further clarified on May 19, 2022 when the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals made an official ruling on the legal status of Delta8 THC products in response to the case of AK Futures LLC v. Boyd Street Distro, LLC. No. 21-56133 U.S. App LEXIS 13526.

While the Ninth Circuit COurt’s ruling is not a blanket stamp of approval for the unrestricted sale of Delta 8 THC Hemp flower or Delta 8 THC products in general,it was a major step forward towards establishing more widely distributed legality of the products. For more information about whether Delta 8 THC products are legal where you live, we encourage you to explore our literature on the subject. 

The Scientific Differences Between Delta 8 Flower Vs. Delta 9 Flower

With several overlapping properties, it can be difficult to distinguish Delta 8 from Delta 9 flowers. Knowing that Delta8 THC hemp flower tends to deliver a weaker high than that of Delta 9 is one thing, but the question is why? The Delta 8 THC cannabinoid has a double-bond structure on its 8th atom (giving it the Delta 8 name) but Delta 9 THC has a double-bond on its 9th atom. This slight modification makes all the difference in how psychoactive the cannabinoid is for users.

Delta 8 THC Hemp Flower Vs. CBD Hemp Flower

From their chemical makeup to their effects on the mind and body, Delta 8 and CBD couldn’t be more different. While Delta 8 has the double-bond structure mentioned above, CBD is completely devoid of it. CBD does not bind to the endocannabinoid system in the same way that Delta 8 THC or Delta 9 THC does, which eliminates the risk of it delivering any psychoactive properties.

CBD is the better option for people who want to avoid any sort of intoxication, psychoactive response, or significant mental effects. It still offers a host of therapeutic benefits, but without the risk of it showing up on a drug test or impacting one’s mental performance in any way. 

From a legal standpoint, Delta8 THC and CBD are actually quite similar. As discussed previously, the 2018 US Farm Bill stipulates that products with or under 0.3% THC are deemed legal for sale and consumption. This is the case for the majority of states within the US, with the exception of Nebraska and Idaho, in which CBD products must contain 0.0% THC.

The Safety of Delta 8 THC Hemp Flower

Delta 8 THC hemp flower is a safe product to consume as long as you purchase it from a reputable retailer like Black Tie CBD. As with all cannabis products, Delta 8 comes with potential risks, all of which are heightened when products are purchased from questionable sources. 

Because of the mild psychoactive effects of Delta 8 THC, it is important to always exercise caution when taking this product. Less legitimate companies may not uphold the highest of standards when manufacturing their Delta 8 THC hemp flowers, which puts users at risk for experiencing negative side effects from fillers, contaminants, and other substances. 

The best way to verify the safety of Delta 8 THC hemp flower products is to review the third-party tested lab results and customer reviews online.

What Is Delta 8 THC?

If you’ve found yourself asking, “What is Delta 8 THC?” you’ve come to the right place. Delta 8 THC, also known as Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol, is a psychoactive substance that comes from the Cannabis sativa plant. Delta 8 THC has  milder psychoactive and intoxicating effects than Delta 9 THC, but it is still important for users to be aware of its potential to impact them. Legally sold Delta 8 THC products contain less than 0.3% THC, which limits the extent of THC’s effect. 

When compared to traditional CBD and Delta 9 THC products, Delta 8 THC products are relatively new to the market and therefore require more extensive research and legislation. The FDA has not evaluated or approved Delta 8 THC products for safe use and they may be marketed in ways that put public health at risk. Some concerns include variability in product labeling and product formulations as well as other terpene and cannabinoid content and concentrations of variable Delta 8 THC.

Some people use Delta 8 THC for a variety of health conditions including nausea, vomiting, glaucoma, sleep issues, and more. It is important to note that the FDA has neither evaluated nor supported Delta 8 THC for these or other health conditions. 

Most users experience a floating and uplifting state followed by a mellow calm and a relaxed state of mind when taking Delta 8 THC and using Delta 8 THC products. Delta 8 may be incorporated into several different forms including edibles, smokables, flowers, dab waxes, moon rocks, pre-rolls, and more. 

Products containing Delta 8 THC should be stored away from pets and children.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-intoxicating cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits but does not make people feel “stoned”

What Is Hemp?

The hemp plant and its extracts are often used for a wide range of conditions. What is hemp? Hemp or cannabis sativa is the same species of plant as cannabis. Unlike cannabis, hemp contains low concentrations of THC, under 0.3%.

Both cannabis and hemp also contain cannabinoids like CBDV (cannabidivarin), CBD, CBG, cannabigerol, and others. The 2018 Farm Bill established the specific definition of hemp versus cannabis by restricting the content of THC in hemp to no more than 0.3%. Additionally, hemp seeds contain protein, fats, and other nutrients.

Some people mistakenly confuse hemp with hemp agrimony, Canadian hemp, cannabidiol, or cannabis but they are not the same. The legality of hemp is a hotly contested topic within the US given the different forms of hemp that exist and state restrictions. The Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 legalized industrial hemp with no restrictions on sale, transport, or possession of hemp-derived products so long as they contain no more than 0.3% THC, as per section 10113 of the Farm Bill. 

Hemp can be used to create both commercial and industrial products, including rope, textiles, clothing, shoes, fuel. Hemp has become an increasingly popular choice by many to address certain physical and neurological conditions including skin and stress issues, but factual evidence on the safety and efficacy of hemp for medicinal purposes is still up for debate. Individuals who choose to utilize hemp for medicinal or therapeutic purposes should always consult a medical professional prior to use.
