How Do Delta-8 Pre-Rolls Compare With CBD Hemp Joints?
Both delta-8 and CBD pre-rolls contain pre-ground hemp flowers, so they taste and smell remarkably similar. Indeed, the only difference between these products is their potency. Delta-8 THC pre-rolls will always feel more intense than CBD joints.
Interestingly, even if there are fewer secondary cannabinoids in a delta-8 THC pre-roll, it will probably feel more intense than a high-CBD strain. Why? Delta-8 is a psychoactive cannabinoid.
Unlike CBD, delta-8 can attach to the brain's CB1 receptors like delta-9 THC. Most studies suggest CBD indirectly influences the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Therefore, it takes less delta-8 to impact a person's body and mind.
Customers new to delta-8 THC joints will probably notice a pronounced “head buzz” after just a few puffs. Chances are, you won't need to smoke the entire joint to feel more intense effects versus a CBD pre-roll.
If Hemp Has Little Delta-8 THC, How Is There So Much Delta-8 In These Pre-Rolls?
Although delta-8 THC is a naturally-occurring cannabinoid, it only makes up about one percent of total cannabinoids in hemp strains. Understandably, when customers learn about hemp's low delta-8 concentration, they wonder how products could have such high amounts of this cannabinoid.
The one-word answer to this question is “isomerization.”
In layman's terms, manufacturers extract tons of CBD from hemp and transform them into delta-8 molecules. Once they have a potent delta-8 extract, they can spray delta-8 onto regular hemp buds.
Interestingly, CBD and delta-8 THC come from the “mother cannabinoid” CBG. Due to this similar lineage, it's relatively easy for skilled technicians to change the structure of CBD into delta-8.
Could Police Arrest Me For Smoking Delta-8 Pre-Rolls?
We're not going to lie: Smoking delta-8 pre-rolls in public can look pretty sketchy. Even though hemp nugs are federally legal, anyone who sees or smells your delta-8 pre-rolls will probably assume you're smoking weed.
Due to hemp's many similarities with marijuana, it can land smokers in a lot of trouble. Even states with relaxed marijuana laws have policies against smoking in vehicles, businesses, or public places. Also, federal territories always follow the DEA's recommendations on cannabis, so local marijuana laws won't apply in National Parks.
To avoid uncomfortable confrontations with the police, delta-8 smokers should reserve their pre-rolls for at-home use. It may not be “illegal” to smoke out in the open, but it can attract unwanted attention. Generally, officers will assume you're smoking THC-containing marijuana if you're using hemp pre-rolls.
What's The Point Of Buying Delta-8 Pre-Rolls?
The two primary reasons people buy delta-8 pre-rolls are as follows:
No matter how skilled you are at making joints, it can be a pain to grind hemp flowers, line them on your paper, and roll it all up. Sometimes, smokers want a quick and hassle-free hemp smoking experience. Since delta-8 pre-rolls are already stuffed with trichome-rich goodness, you'll save precious time and energy.
On top of this convenience factor, delta-8 THC pre-rolls provide extra potency versus CBD hemp joints. Consumers who want a more substantial “high” will enjoy the extra buzz delta-8 provides.
Most often, delta-8 smokers who are always traveling will benefit the most from these pre-rolls. However, delta-8 pre-rolls are also fantastic for people new to smokable hemp.
There's zero learning curve involved in lighting a hemp joint, so new customers could give delta-8 hemp a try without mastering the art of rolling a joint.
Another reason many people gravitate to delta-8 pre-rolls is for party settings. No matter how patient your friends are, nobody wants to wait around while you grind and roll individual hemp joints. It's way easier to have a stash of pre-rolls at the ready for sharing.
What Should I Feel While Smoking Delta-8 Pre-Rolls?
Most cannasseurs claim delta-8's effects are somewhere in-between CBD and delta-9 THC. While delta-8 isn't as subtle as CBD, it's also not as mind-melting as delta-9 THC.
You'll probably notice “tingly” sensations in your head and temples after first smoking a delta-8 pre-roll. These relaxing sensations often spread throughout a user's entire body. Depending on your THC tolerance, these effects may induce a slightly “stoned” couchlock feeling.
Most people who try delta-8 THC claim it mimics indica-rich strains like Northern Lights, Bubba Kush, or OG Kush. Chances are, delta-8 users aren't going to experience the euphoria associated with sativa-forward cultivars like Sour D. Instead, you should expect a profoundly relaxing “high” that has a sedative edge.
Delta-8 may not be as intense as delta-9 THC, but it can easily trigger lethargy. Patients who aren't used to THC may also notice side effects like paranoia or anxiety.
To avoid these unwanted side effects, customers should take one puff of their delta-8 pre-roll and wait about 15 minutes. Only take a second smoke if you don't feel overwhelmed by the first hit. Also, please only take delta-8 pre-rolls later in the day in a private setting.
Is Smoking Pre-Rolls The Most Potent Way To Use Delta-8?
Smoking is the quickest way to get hemp into your system. Once you inhale smoke from a delta-8 pre-roll, all of those magical hemp cannabinoids will travel directly into your bloodstream via the lungs. Most people who smoke delta-8 hemp flowers notice pronounced effects after taking their first inhale.
Another reason delta-8 pre-rolls are incredibly potent may have to do with the “entourage effect.” People who support this theory claim hemp molecules work best in their most “natural” state. So, when delta-8 is paired with other hemp cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes, it may create a higher-intensity experience.
Although delta-8 pre-rolls are potent, it's not the only delivery method with a high absorption rate. For instance, you could enjoy a comparable intensity with one of Organic CBD Nugs' delta-8 vape carts.
Some users prefer these e-juices because vaporizers get rid of the carcinogens in smoke. If you're super susceptible to coughing, vaping delta-8 may be a more comfortable way to enjoy this cannabinoid's full potency.
It's also worth mentioning you could use any of Organic CBD Nugs' hemp flowers in dry herb vaporizers. Whether you have a convection or conduction vaporizer, these devices help create a smoother and more flavorful delta-8 experience.
Does A Delta-8 Pre-Roll Taste Like Weed?
Even weed experts have a difficult time distinguishing marijuana joints from hemp pre-rolls. Thanks to the recent CBD boom, many master cultivators have turned their attention to making hemp that looks, tastes, and smells like weed. Interestingly, some hemp farms now use genetics from iconic marijuana strains as the basis for modern CBD cultivars.
As you'll notice, many of Organic CBD Nugs' delta-8 THC pre-rolls draw inspiration from famous cannabis hybrids. Since our hemp flowers have the same terpenes as the “OG” strains, they will taste remarkably similar to the real deal.
Unless you have a sophisticated palate, it's difficult to distinguish the flavor differences between our artisan-grade hemp and high-quality marijuana strains.
