Hempstrax Delta 8 Flower
Our Hempstrax Delta-8 Flower is an enjoyable smokable flower that will provide you with a light, clear-headed buzz.
It is hand manicured and cured to perfection. Since no Delta-8 Flower currently exists, we take organically grown CBD flower and we add Delta-8 Distillate to create a delicious, light, energizing flower that can be enjoyed anytime.
What is Delta 8?
Delta-8 has quickly become a buzz in the CBD space. It is legal as it is a hemp derived form of THC and it is therefore legal under the 2018 Farm Bill.
Delta-8 reacts with the body’s Endocannabinoid System – primarily the CB1 receptor of the Central Nervous System to bring on its effects. The effects are similar to those of THC (Delta-9) but with a lighter more euphoric feeling.
Many users of Delta-8 report a clearer, more focused feeling without any effects of paranoia or anxiety.
No wonder it is fast becoming a much sought after product in the search to find a cannabinoid that calms and gives all the good effects of THC Delta-9 with none of the negative effects.
The Delta part of the name refers to the double bond. Both Delta-8 and Delta-9 both contain this double-bond, and the difference is where the bond is located.
So what makes it so special?
A research study conducted in 2016, determined that Delta-8 has lower psychotropic effects than THC Delta-9. The effects from Delta-8 can be felt differently by the body and will not lead to mind-fog or lethargy like Delta-9.
Delta-8 products are available in various forms. They come as edibles in the form of candies or gummies, as hemp flower that has been sprayed with Delta-8 distillate, as vape cartridges, tinctures and topicals. Always choose a company that lab tests its Delta 8 products so you know exactly what you are getting.
The National Cancer Institute have found Delta-8 to have amazing properties that are anti-anxiety and anti-nausea. These are both symptoms of the patients they treat. Delta-8 can also stimulate appetite.
Delta-8 is a great go-to for all the advantageous and positive effects of THC Delta-9 without the negative drowsy, anxious feelings. It is great for patients to use during the day when they would like to stay clear headed but would like to fight pain, inflammation, and anxiety.
Delta-8 and research on treating cancer
A study in 1995 conducted a hospital in Israel, gave Delta-8 to children suffering from cancer. The study noted that there had been 480 successful treatments of cancerous tumors using Delta-8. It also relieved nausea in patients and allowed them to eat whilst undergoing treatment.
Delta-8 for anxiety and depression
No doubt there will be many more studies on Delta-8 in the future but what we can confirm in the interim is that it is just as effective as CBD in alleviating anxiety.
Delta-9 THC found in marijuana can often bring out paranoia and anxiety, whilst Delta-8 can give all of the positive outcomes of marijuana without the negative ones.
Bear in mind, vaping or smoking Delta-8 will result in an immediate effect that is short lived whereas eating a Delta-8 edible will take 30 minutes – an hour to take effect and will last longer.

Think of Delta-8 as the legal THC!
Delta 8 THC products are legal according to federal law under the 2018 Farm Bill. However, we do not guarantee that this product is legal in your state or territory and it is up to you to check on the status in your State. Our Delta 8 THC extract is 100% derived from legal hemp and does not contain more than 0.3% Delta-9 THC.
The 2018 Farm Bill specifically made all derivatives, isomers, and cannabinoids in hemp legal, provided the final product has less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC. For reference, delta 8 THC is an isomer of CBD, a derivative of hemp and CBD, a cannabinoid found in hemp, and is ultimately contained in our extracts with less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC.
We often get asked about the Federal Analogue Act, which is part of the Controlled Substances Act, because Delta 8 THC is listed. This is where the 2018 Farm Bill is especially helpful, as it also includes an amendment to the Controlled Substances Act, explicitly removing all tetrahydrocannabinols found in hemp.
