How Do You Know if the Flower Is Strong?

The first and most obvious way to determine the strength of a D8 flower strain is by its Delta 8 THC content. The potency should appear on the product label, but we can’t blame you if you are suspicious of a brand’s claims. Fortunately, there is an easy way for you to verify what it says on the label: third-party lab results.


Reputable brands like Hollyweed send their Delta 8 products to independent labs for quality control purposes. Third-party lab testing verifies the product’s cannabinoid content. To see the lab results for yourself, look for Certificates of Analysis (COAs) on our website.


If you can inspect a variety of D8 flower in person, you can use your senses to get an idea of which one is the strongest Delta 8 flower. High-quality hemp flowers have a dense coating of trichomes, which are tiny white appendages that look like peach fuzz. Trichomes produce cannabinoids like CBD, Delta 8, and Delta 9 THC. A large number of trichomes is a good indicator of a potent flower.


Trichomes also produce terpenes, which are the natural chemical compounds that give hemp flower its unique smell. A strong smell is another good indicator of high-quality hemp products. However, you should watch out for Delta 8 flower that smells moldy or rancid.



Potencies of Delta 8 Flower

At this point, there are more cannabis strains in the world than anyone can count, each with unique cannabinoid levels. Technically, none of these strains has a particularly high potency of Delta 8 THC, though. That is because Delta 8 only occurs in very small quantities – too small to deliver the effects that we love.


To make potent Delta 8 flower, manufacturers infuse CBD hemp flower with D8 distillate. This means that all Delta 8 THC flower is also CBD flower. CBD has many beneficial properties, such as promoting better sleep, a balanced mood, and reduced discomfort, but it also elevates the Delta 8 experience.


The compounds in the hemp plant exhibit a unique phenomenon called the entourage effect. When you consume hemp products, all of the natural chemicals they contain unite and amplify one another’s effects. This means that Delta 8 THC is even more effective when you pair it with CBD, so when you shop for Delta 8 flower, make sure it has a high level of both D8 and CBD.


What To Look For in Delta 8 Flower

In the previous section entitled “How Do You Know if the Flower Is Strong?” we taught you how to identify high-quality products. It starts by looking for COAs (Certificates of Analysis) on the manufacturer’s website. This is one of the reasons that shopping online is such a good idea. It is highly unlikely that you will be able to find COAs at a brick-and-mortar dispensary.


Third-party lab tests check for multiple cannabinoids, not just Delta 8 THC. Keep the entourage effect in mind when you read COAs, and investigate the total cannabinoid content. Take a strain like Hollyweed’s Lifter, for example. It doesn’t just contain a generous 6.12% Delta 8, but also 19% CBD and almost 30% total cannabinoids to maximize the overall impact.

Why Choose Hollyweed for Delta 8 Flower?

Hollyweed is a national leader in the cannabis industry, powered by our founders’ commitment to natural, organic living and the joyful properties of cannabis. Here are some of the key factors that set us apart from the competition:


Organic American Hemp

We source premium, organic hemp flower from local farms in Oregon and Colorado. USA-grown hemp is more desirable than imported hemp because it is fresher and grows under FDA regulations. Many Delta 8 manufacturers import cheap hemp crops from other countries. However, these crops might not comply with the United States’ high standards for hemp production, and they might even exceed the federal limit of 0.3% Delta 9 THC.


Organic farming practices ensure that our customers get a high-quality product every time. Conventional farming utilizes synthetic chemical fertilizers to kill potential pests. Manufacturers will tell you that they clean up all the traces of pesticides, but do you really want to take the risk of smoking something that was once covered in poison? That’s a hard no from us.


Clean, Eco-friendly Manufacturing

The manufacturing process is just as important as the hemp crop itself. As mentioned previously, Delta 8 flower is CBD-rich hemp flower infused with D8 distillate. To make the distillate, the manufacturer must first extract CBD (cannabidiol) from the raw flower and convert it into Delta 8.


Chemists use a process called isomerization to change the chemical bonds of CBD molecules and transform them into Delta 8 THC. The quality of the final product depends largely on the quality of the original CBD extract before isomerization.


We use a clean, eco-friendly CO2 extraction process to make our CBD extract. Many other cannabis companies use chemical solvents like butane or ethanol to extract CBD from raw hemp plants. This can leave traces of harmful chemicals in the final product, and we would never expose our customers to such dangerous elements.


Federal Farm Bill Compliant

All of our products comply with the 2018 federal Farm Bill. This means they come from hemp plants, which are the legal variety of cannabis plants. Hemp contains no more than 0.3% Delta 9 THC, and any plant that exceeds this limit counts as marijuana, which is federally illegal. If you want proof that Hollyweed’s Delta 8 flower falls within the legal Delta 9 range, just check the COA posted on our website.


Brand Reputation

If you need even more proof that Hollyweed has the best Delta 8 THC on the market, look at all the rave reviews our customers have given us online. Third-party sites like Google Reviews and Trustpilot are a great place to find real, unbiased opinions from customers like yourself.



Final Thoughts – Strongest Delta 8 Flower

If you want to find the strongest Delta 8 hemp flower, start by looking at the potency listed on the label, but don’t stop there. Some brands make label claims that they can’t back up, so be sure to check COAs for proof of potency. And remember what we taught you about identifying high-quality hemp through its smell and appearance. You are a hemp expert now, so use that knowledge to make sure you always get the best products.


If you’re ready to try the best Delta 8 hemp flower out there, just head to the Hollyweed shop. We carry all of the potent Delta 8 strains we talked about in this article and a few other unique varieties. We also carry premium CBD products to cover all of your cannabis needs!
