Delta-8 Flower Buying Guide

Are you a cannabis enthusiast interested in Delta-8 flower but don’t know where to start?

Or maybe, you’re a lover of Delta-8 that’s looking to switch up your routine.

Well, you’ve come to the right place.

In this guide, we’re going to cover everything you need to know about Delta-8 flower, including:

Sit back and relax because it’s time to begin.

What is Delta-8 Flower?

Farmers don't just breed hemp for industrial purposes. Some grow it specifically for consumption with flavor, aroma, and cannabinoid content in mind. Delta-8 flower is simply CBD flower enhanced with Delta-8 distillate.

Benefits of Delta-8 Flower

Before choosing flower, you’re likely curious about the advantages.

Below, you’ll find a few of the reasons why some choose Delta-8 flower over other hemp products.

Faster Onset of Effects

Compared to other methods, smoking hemp allows consumers to have fast results without waiting a long period like edibles. 

Combination of Multiple Cannabinoids

Delta-8 has its distinct properties. And when you throw CBD flower into the mix, which has its own set of cannabinoids and terpenes, you can experience a whole different side of this molecule. 

A Variety of Strains

For many, choosing from a wide range of flower stains is a huge perk of using Delta-8 flower. With the option of different terpene and cannabinoid profiles, you can create a different experience for each session.

Easier to Adjust

There is nothing worse than starting small with an edible and waiting patiently for effects, then having results you weren’t expecting. But with Delta-8 flower, this isn’t an issue.

Because it activates quicker, you’ll be able to determine if you need to adjust the amount sooner than other methods.

How to Choose Quality Flower When Shopping Online

Choosing Delta-8 flower online can feel challenging. However, with our tips below, you'll know what exactly to look for in Delta-8 flower.

Third-Party Lab Testing

Reputable hemp companies will support the quality of their product by publishing updated lab results of all their products. This testing will come with a certificate of analysis (COA), which you can typically find on a QR code on the packaging.

You'll find the cannabinoid profile and the analysis that determines if it's free of heavy metals or other harmful contaminants within this document.

Farming Practices

How a grower cultivates flower can determine its overall quality. So before you buy Delta-8 flower, check to see if they use organic and sustainable practices. This aspect can indicate extra attention to detail and care in the growing process.

Moisture Content

Applying Delta-8 distillate to CBD flower is a tricky game. With too much, the flower is unsmokeable. And if there’s too little, the Delta-8 isn’t effective. But when a company is experienced and skilled, they execute the perfect balance between moisture and Delta-8. 

Customer Reviews

Anyone can claim they have premium Delta-8 flower. But who better to believe than the customers? Let the product speak for itself and read what past consumers had to say.

Aroma

Obviously, it’s difficult to smell the aroma online. But by reading the product description, you can get an idea of the scent that the Delta-8 flower produces. 

Physical Appearance

The appearance will be a major indicator of quality. You should look for deep shades of green with small clusters of frosty-looking trichomes. 

How to Use Delta-8 Flower

How to Use Delta-8 Flower

When you purchase Delta-8 flower, you’re going to need some tools. And the equipment you use will affect the experience. Below, you’ll find the typical tools used with hemp flower.

Herb Grinder

A herb grinder is a must if you have Delta-8 flower. It's a device that shreds the material in even pieces for a consistent burn.

Without it, you'll struggle with breaking down the flower and will be left with some sticky hands.

Pipe/Water Pipe

Pipes are easily the most common tool in an enthusiast's possession. It makes smoking a smooth experience and is easy to use.

Joints

Joints are one of the most classic and iconic techniques of smoking cannabis.

But it can be a challenge. It often takes multiple failed attempts before successfully making one. But practice makes perfect. So make sure to have extra rolling papers on deck because you're going to need them.

Dry Herb Vaporizers

Dry herb vaporizers are relatively new and cost more than other equipment. Still, enthusiasts enjoy this because there is no combustion. The vape will simply heat the flower (without burning it) to vaporize the cannabinoids. This method is easier on the lungs and creates a smooth, rich taste.

Buy Pre-Rolls

Pre-rolls are hemp flower wrapped into a pre-rolled joint. All you need is a lighter, and you’re good to go.

Hometown Hero Delta-8 Flower

Now that you understand flower let's dive into our selection of high-quality Delta-8 flower to help determine which one is right for your needs.

Delta-8 Raygun Flower

Look no further if you're looking for a classic taste but with a modern twist.

Raygun was bred for its pinene profile and cultivated outdoors to bring a touch of earthiness with peppery undertones.

Lightly glazed with 250mg of Delta-8 per gram, you’ll experience a taste familiar to the old-timers. But this time, with the bonus of Delta-8 THC.

Delta 8 Zero G Flower

When fresh citrus feels far, Zero G will make sure it isn’t.

With one sniff, you’ll be greeted with a sweet, citrusy aroma that will deliver an exceptional flavor.

Indoor-cultivation produces a smooth and consistent experience, so each puff is better than the last. Inspired by our award-winning Zero-G with the added touch of Delta-8, this flower has everything to offer…and more.

Delta 8 Moon Rocks

With premium, CBD flower dipped in Delta-8 distillate, then rolled in CBD kief—we bring you Delta-8 Moon Rocks.

Packed with CBD and Delta-8, prepare for an experience like no other. Moon Rocks are not your average hemp flower and shouldn't be treated as such. Use a sprinkle or two on top of your favorite Delta-8 flower for the ideal session.

4 Things to Consider Before Buying Delta-8 Flower

We can all agree Delta-8 flower is the ultimate form of consumption. However, sometimes other factors can affect whether or not this method is a good fit.

Here are five things to consider before buying Delta-8 flower.

1. Before You Buy, Consider Your Living Situation

Hemp flower has its advantages, but a downside of smoking it is the distinct aroma. If you live in an apartment or have roommates, it might be better to stick with Delta-8 Edibles until you have your own place.

2. Making Edibles Sounds Fun, But Is It?

With our Delta-8 flower, you can make a top-shelf cannabutter or cannaoil to use in any recipe. Though, being successful at this might take a few tries.

Instead of having a failed attempt at unpleasant-tasting edibles, let us do the hard work for you. Currently, we offer Delta-8 Baked Goods crafted at an artisan bakery to bring tasty treats with the power of Delta-8.

3. Smoking and Vaping Requires Tools

Unless you purchase Delta-8 Pre-rolls, tools are a must. And if you’re looking to try hemp flower, it might be best to start with a pre-roll to prevent buying tools you won’t use again.

4. Measurement

With edibles, it's far easier to measure how much to take since they're pre-measured. And with smoking or vaping, it's difficult to determine the amount you need. So if you're looking for exact measurements, our Delta-8 Capsules come in 30 capsule containers, with 15mg per capsule.

Final Thoughts

When it comes to purchasing Delta-8 flower, there are a lot of factors to consider. But when you buy from a manufacturer like Hometown Hero, quality and safety will always be delivered.

Whether you choose to try our Delta-8 flower or stick with edibles, you’re still receiving high-quality products.

And remember, with each purchase you make, a portion of the profits will be donated to veteran charities.
