If you are one that likes to partake in a cannabis smoke session, whether it be hemp or marijuana, Delta 8 Flower may sound like an interesting alternative option. While we would love to share that there are fields of hemp being grown right now with large concentrations of Delta 8 THC, unfortunately, we cannot. That is because Delta 8 is only formed after the oxidization of Delta 9 THC, and those concentrations aren’t nearly enough, not to mention the fact that hemp contains 0.3% or less of Delta 9. So, if there isn’t enough Delta 9 THC to form a large enough concentration of Delta 8, how is Delta 8 Flower possible?
Due to the fact that Delta 8 can only be obtained in low concentrations, processors must first extract and isolate the cannabinoid. The concentration levels will still be low, but this is a possible method. Most processors will not use this method because it would not be affordable for either parties, manufacturers, retailers, or consumers. Oftentimes, these processors use an alternative method to obtain larger concentrations, which involves a conversion process where CBD is converted into Delta 8 THC. This method makes Delta 8 THC affordable for all parties, allowing the Delta 8 market to grow and thrive.
Now that you are aware of how the Delta 8 THC compound is obtained in large enough concentrations where it could be used and made affordable, how is Delta 8 Flower made?
How Is Delta 8 Flower Made?
As mentioned, Delta 8 Flower isn’t grown, it’s made. Hemp flower contains large concentrations of CBD, therefore many people refer to it as “CBD Flower”. The same thing goes for Marijuana. Some people refer to marijuana as “THC Flower”, since it contains large concentrations of Delta 9 THC.
Unfortunately, hemp flower does not contain large concentrations of Delta 8 THC, therefore it must be made, and the only way to do that is to first extract CBD from the hemp plant, then isolate it from the 113 different cannabinoids that naturally occur. Next, manufacturers take ready-to-sell hemp buds, place them into a tumbler, and apply a prepped Delta 8 THC Distillate by spraying a fine and even mist onto the hemp buds. Lastly, there are two options that are not required. Manufacturers can apply a fine layer of Kief to the hemp buds. Terpenes are another layer option as well and are often used to enhance flower that is lacking in both smell and taste.
- Use ready-to-sell hemp (prepped hemp flower).
- Place the hemp into a tumbler using a slow speed.
- Spray a fine mist of prepped Delta 8 THC Distillate onto the flower.
- Apply a fine layer of Kief onto the hemp.
- Apply a fine layer of Terpenes onto the hemp.
Can I Make Delta 8 Flower Myself?
While it may sound fairly easy, it isn’t. Delta 8 Flower should only be made by professional manufacturers that have experience in doing so. The most important part of it all is remaining legal, which consists of using compliant material that is legal. Another huge part of making Delta 8 Flower is the spray gun. There are a lot of variables that come into play with the spray gun itself, such as finding one that won’t clog due to the high viscosity of distillate and perfecting the size of the droplets to create a fine texture that can be evenly applied to the flower. While a tumbler isn’t a part of the process that is hard to obtain, the cost associated with obtaining one that will allow you to evenly coat the flower may be an issue for many at-home do-it-yourselfers.
If you were looking to obtain Delta 8 Flower (whether you are a distributor, wholesaler, or one that enjoys the thrill of DIY), we recommend buying Delta 8 Flower that is made by professional manufacturers. Though our quick rundown of making Delta 8 Flower may seem like a quick and easy task, it is far from it and requires both funds, experience, knowledge, time, and patience.
