A slightly Sativa-dominant strain, Blue Dream’s origins remain somewhat of a mystery. It is thought to have originated in the Santa Cruz, California area before being stabilized by the breeder DJ Short, giving us the multi-award-winning strain we know today.
Infusing the plant-derived terpene profile of this strain into the distillate brings the best elements of the strain’s Indica and Sativa qualities, along with its strong, delicious berry flavors. Commonly reported effects are a cerebral and creative buzz, followed by waves of body relaxation, making for a well-rounded overall experience. In other words, this product from 8Delta8 aims to provide a satisfying experience.
The most dominant terpene in this distillate is myrcene (also found in the basil plant and in mangos) and is known to act as an analgesic and to create synergy between the other terpenes and compounds. Also present is alpha-pinene, abundant throughout nature but generally not well represented within most cannabis strains. Blue Dream, however, makes an exception to this, being one of the few strains which contain significant amounts of this terpene. It’s best known for its strong anti-oxidant properties and actions in other, long-respected medicinal plants such as mint.
Delta 8, found in far smaller amounts than Delta 9, is increasingly attracting medical and scientific attention for its wide-ranging potential applications and the unique way in which it interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system. It’s of interest to many users for its commonly reported benefit of decreasing anxiety, which can often be a result of Delta 9 THC use.
To ensure the potency in this syringe is accurate, the company sends this product to an independent laboratory to test its cannabinoid profile.
What is Delta 8 THC?
Cannabinoids are chemical compounds secreted from cannabis plants as resin. They have the ability to interact with our body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Delta 8 THC is a cannabinoid that occurs in much smaller concentrations than most other cannabinoids.
Delta 8 is an isomer that forms as Delta-9 THC ages and oxidizes. This process increases the stability of the Δ8 molecular structure so that it does not degrade as easily and lasts much longer over time.
Delta-8 THC and Delta 9-THC contain similarities in their molecular structure. Both contain double bonds, but D8 contains the bond on the 8th carbon chain and not on the 9th. For that reason, D8 and D9 THC react similarly within the Endocannabinoid receptors in the body as a result of their similar presentation of structure and properties.
D8 requires an intricate process of extraction, isolation, conversion, and refinement. With Δ8 there are benefits and effects to serve both medicinal and recreational consumers. Because D8 occurs in smaller concentrations, it’s common to see it sold in the form of distillates or edibles.
The compound Δ8 legally derives from hemp and contains less than 0.3% Δ9-THC in accordance with the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 (also known as the 2018 Farm Bill). Within the Bill, it states that all derivatives, isomers, and cannabinoids in hemp are federally legal provided that all final products contain less than 0.3% D9 THC.
- If you are subject to routine drug screenings, do not consume Δ8-THC.
- Each state has its own separate laws regarding hemp products. Please be aware of the laws within your state/province of residence.
- Psychotropic potency of Delta 8 THC will often vary. For this reason, please do not operate a vehicle after consuming Δ8 products.
- Consult your doctor before use.
