What is Delta 8 THC Flower?
Delta 8 THC flower is a close analog to regular delta-9 THC flower that produces significantly milder effects. Delta 8 flower imparts a clear-headed, functional buzz that some refer to as a businessperson’s high. You may think of delta 8 as “THC Light.” You can go about your workday with a sense of relaxation and a shift in perspective without worrying about heavy sedation or intense psychoactive effects.
Some of our Delta 8 THC Hemp Flower Strains
Our current delta 8 flower inventory includes three classic hemp hybrids:
- Blue Dream: Born on the California coast, sativa-dominant Blue Dream offers hints of delicious blueberry and makes the ideal accompaniment to outdoor activities like hiking, skiing, or surfing.
- Girl Scout Cookies: The delta 8 hemp flower version of Cookie Fam’s iconic strain imparts deep relaxation and dazzles the senses with sweet mint, lemon, and cherry notes.
- Purple Punch: Featuring mouthwatering grape, berry, and vanilla flavors, indica-dominant Purple Punch is the perfect choice to cap off a casual dinner party.
- Skywalker OG: Breeders produced Skywalker OG by crossing three diverse strains: Blueberry, Mazar, and OG Kush. The resulting hybrid has a one-of-a-kind terpene profile featuring plenty of myrcene, limonene, pinene, and beta-caryophyllene.
- Wedding Cake: Wedding Cake was originally created in California, where expert breeders crossed tart and delicious Cherry Pie with the ever-popular Girl Scout Cookies strain. Wedding Cake features dense, forest-green buds with pink and purple accents, earning the hybrid the nickname “Pink Cookies.”
- Northern Lights: Like the Aurora Borealis, Northern Lights’ compact buds sit like emerald-green jewels, sparkling with a generous layer of glittery crystals. If you look closely, you can see glints of purple and blue amidst the frosty white trichomes.
How to Store Delta-8 Flower
You can store your delta 8 hemp flowers in their original packaging, which we’ve optimized for longer-term storage. However, you will need to keep your delta 8 buds in a cool, dark place away from any light or heat source. Sunlight and excessive heat degrades cannabinoids and can make your delta 8 hemp flower less potent and tasty.
Everything You Need to Know About Delta 8 THC Flower
How are Delta 8 and Delta-9 THC Different?
Delta 8 and delta-9 THC have remarkably similar chemical structures, except for the placement of one double bond. Regular delta-9 has the double bond on the ninth atom in its carbon chain, giving the cannabinoid a form that can make a powerful connection with the brain’s CB1 receptors. When the double bond moves to the eighth carbon, forming delta 8, the molecule can no longer make such a strong link. The result is a mellower, more clear-headed, and functional experience.
We’ve published an entire article on the differences between delta-8 and delta-9 THC in our blog to give you more information.
How Can I Use Delta 8 Flower?
Delta 8 hemp flowers are incredibly versatile. For a quick pick-me-up, you can smoke delta 8 flower in a pipe, joint, blunt, or bong, just like any other buds. Dry herb vaporizers also offer fast delivery along with enhanced flavor and smoothness.
Can I Legally Buy and Possess Delta 8 Flower in the United States?
In 2018, Congress passed the landmark Farm Bill, legalizing hemp products with less than .3% delta-9 THC. Hemp flowers, including those that feature delta 8, remain federally legal in the United States.
However, some states maintain stricter laws regarding hemp flowers or products containing delta 8. We’ve published a series of articles so that you can find out if hemp flower is legal in your state, but we still suggest that you consult with your local laws before purchasing delta 8 hemp flower.
Will Delta-8 Flower Trigger a Positive Result on a Drug Test?
If you’re required to submit to drug screenings, you should refrain from consuming delta 8 products. Since delta 8 is one of the compounds formed as regular THC metabolizes, it may be a specific target for drug tests. Urine screenings can detect THC metabolites consumed 30 days prior, and more sensitive hair or nail examinations cover a range of 90 days or more.
Is Organic CBD Nugs Delta 8 Flower Lab-Tested?
Here at Organic CBD Nugs, we pride ourselves on offering some of the highest-quality hemp flower on the market. That’s why we send each and every batch of our flower to an unbiased, third-party lab for a complete panel of tests.

Does Delta 8 Flower Produce Any Side Effects?
Delta 8 may produce milder versions of the same side effects that regular THC causes, especially in higher dosages. Although delta 8 is typically well-tolerated, some people experience unwanted effects, such as:
- Dry eyes and mouth
- Increased appetite
- Temporarily raised blood pressure
- Reduced intraocular pressure
As with all of our products, we recommend that you consult with your physician before consuming delta 8 flowers, especially if you regularly take prescription medications. Since cannabinoid research is still in the early stages, women who may be pregnant or nursing should refrain from consuming delta 8 flower.
Are Delta 8 Flower Effects Similar to What CBD Does?
Although CBD and delta 8 are both cannabinoids found in hemp plants, they interact in different ways with endocannabinoid receptors. CBD stimulates ECS receptors indirectly, while delta 8 creates a weak but direct bond with CB1 receptors in the central nervous system. Both compounds impart uplifting peaceful feelings, but delta 8 also offers mellow psychoactive effects. Delta 8 is well-suited for people searching for a more heady experience but don’t want to deal with the sometimes overwhelming psychoactivity of regular cannabis.
Does Organic CBD Nugs Sell Any Other Delta 8 Products?
Yes. Organic CBD Nugs offers delta-8 vape cartridges in a host of strain-specific flavors. Each cartridge features 1000 milligrams of delta 8 distillate and natural hemp terpenes.

Is Delta 8 the Same as CBD?
Although Delta 8 is extracted from hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD), the two are not exactly the same. Both are cannabinoids, however, Delta 8 THC has more common properties to Delta 9 THC. For example, it produces a psychoactive effect, unlike CBD. Having said this, Delta 8 can produce similar effects to CBD when it comes to aiding in anxiety and insomnia.
