Delta-8 THC. Sounds a bit like a science experiment, right? As if the Government was genetically engineering THC and this particular control group was called “Delta-8”...TV pilot idea? Okay, okay, maybe that’s just me and my sci-fi nerd brain.
With all seriousness, Delta-8 THC is sweeping the market and growing in national popularity everyday, and for good reason. For starters, it's federally legal, despite the fact that THC is literally in the name - we are NOT lawyers fyi - it IS legal.
Why, you ask?
Well, technically, only Delta-9 THC is illegal, but the same molecule just one stop over on the cannabinoid chemistry train is completely legal in all 50 states. This has made it easy for CBD brands to convert some hardcore THC users into CBD consumers basically overnight.
So what makes Delta-8 so great? I’d say its effects are oddly similar to its next door neighbor in the sense that you do feel slightly, dare I say, hiiigh? But it’s not intoxicating. I mean, I’m writing this on Delta-8 and I’d say I’m still quite the wordsmith, wouldn’t you? Most notable is the relief it packs and it's help for people, like me, suffering from various issues. I have to be sharp and on my toes, but my pain gets in the way constantly. CBD helps some, but this Delta-8 is certainly a step up for me.
Anyhow, given the excitement over this new lovely molecule, we thought we'd seek out and review some of the best Delta-8 products around. As it turns out, one amazing local DC company already has their Delta-8 game on point - meet Flowerz (pickflowerz.com).
With an array of different top quality Delta-8 products and strains ranging from Apple Pie to Super Lemon Haze, there's something for everyones' tastebuds . On top of the strain variety, these cartridges are infused with naturally sourced terpenes which deepen the flavor profiles and compliment the cannabinoids nicely. Either way, there’s no denying these Delta-8 cartridges from Flowerz are the real deal. After just one pull I could immediately feel relief.
Note that their 0.5g cartridges are also cheaper than your average THC carts by a notable amount. Generally half gram carts at an I-71 vendor would set you back about, what? 50 bones? 60 bones? These go for $24.99 on the Flowerz online shop and all orders above $50 get free shipping NATIONWIDE (so get two!).
These great Delta-8’s can also be found at various CBD and I-71 shops around the District. Keep your eyes peeled for a tasty way to enjoy this hot new cannabis craze. Delta-8 is here to stay!
