In outer space, asteroids are small, rocky objects orbiting the Sun. In our Fern Valley Farms universe, Delta 8 Asteroids are dense, sticky objects that, once consumed, will have a veritable storm of cannabinoids orbiting throughout your endocannabinoid system.
Okay, let’s get back down to Earth and explain what we are babbling about. Here at Fern Valley Farms, we are always anxious to explore new vistas and pioneer new efforts in the hemp industry, all with the improvement and expansion of our quality products in mind ready to be delivered to your doorstep as quickly and affordably as possible.
With the addition of our Delta 8 product line, we have clearly hit a positive and happy nerve with a broad cross-section of our valued and loyal customers. (Which also helps explain why our first Delta 8 edible product sold out in record time after the announcement of its arrival in May 2021!)
This time, we really pushed the envelope when it comes to delivering rich concentrations of Delta 8 THC: and after creating and testing the result in-house, we knew we came up with something that was out of this world. And somewhere during our session, as our moods lifted, the smoke cleared, and laughter began filling the air, everyone began realizing how spacy we all really were. We already had Moon Rocks and Kief Dusters, but this experience was so unlike those two other products that Asteroids seemed the only appropriate name to give these amazingly thick, rich, Delta 8 THC-drenched CBD buds smothered with CBG kief.
IMPORTANT NOTES: Unlike CBD and other popular cannabinoids (such as CBG and CBN), Delta 8 products contain a greater than 0.3% concentration of Delta 8 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). While similar to Delta 9 THC because it contains psychoactive properties, most experienced consumers of Delta 9 THC find that Delta 8 THC products deliver less intense psychotropic effects. That being said, those individuals with little to no experience with Delta 9 THC products are strongly cautioned to take it slow when first trying each type of Delta 8 product we offer (yes, you can react differently to Delta 8 Gummies than Delta 8 Flower).
DELTA 8 ASTEROIDS POWER PROFILE
As you know, we love to gloat over the profiles of our various flower strains; well, we simply have to brag about our Delta 8 Asteroids profile. There may only be three ingredients, but they deliver a synergistic result, where their combined cannabinoids bring a clear and distinct effect to both mind and body.
When it comes to ingredients, you can’t get any purer than:
- Specialist CBD Flower – this always-popular and powerful Sativa-dominant strain sets the foundation with 24mg (per gram) of CBD
- Delta 8 Distillate – next, these premium buds are dipped into our Delta 8 distillate which adds an amazing 533mg (53.3%) of Delta 8 THC to the picture
- CBG Kief – finally, a full 98mg (9.8%) of CBG kief completes this masterpiece, bringing more than 650mg (per gram) of combined premium cannabinoids to your table
This is one situation where keeping it simple really pays off for our customers!
DAY OR NIGHT
As with any new Delta 8 product we introduce, we urge you to arrange a quiet space and allow sufficient time (preferably 2-3 hours at a minimum) to really get to know our Delta 8 Asteroids. For many people, that time is typically an evening or weekend event, when responsibilities are minimal and stress lower. In such a situation, you are giving these Delta 8 Asteroids the best opportunity to introduce themselves to you and demonstrate their powerful benefits.
Because you have The Specialist with its Sativa influence offering you a happy and uplifting focus married to our CBD Kief known for its Indica-type relaxation effects, you have the best of all worlds. You will find important projects that need finishing more fascinating and attention-absorbing, making completion even easier and faster to accomplish. Then once you are done, you find yourself better able to really let go and fully relax, satisfied about being productive without being scattered.
Once you have had the opportunity to get familiar with this unique and powerful creation of nature and good old Fern Valley Farms ingenuity, we’re sure you will find moments, both day and night, where nothing will quite do the job like our awesome Delta 8 THC Asteroids!
TIPS FOR CONSUMING DELTA 8 ASTEROIDS
When you first open your freshness-sealed package of Delta 8 Asteroids the rich fragrances of CBD Flower, CBG Kief, and Delta 8 THC distillate is the first thing to hit you. Yep, even before pulling out one of these luscious buds, your nose will be telling you in very clear nonverbal terms what you can expect when you begin your first session with Delta 8 Asteroids.
Next, pull out one of these weighty buds and feel its heft in the palm of your hand. A good chunk of that weight is composed of the cannabinoids and terpenes waiting to be released into your system! As you take your time to examine a bud more closely, you’re looking at an original Specialist flower bud which was then dipped in Delta 8 distillate and finally rolled with CBG kief. Talk about the perfect trifecta! This one-two-three trio of different cannabinoids delivered in different forms (Delta 8 as a distillate, CBD as a flower, and CBG as kief) makes a new and compelling kind of music in both body and mind.)
(By the way, we are not joking when we talk about the “heft” of our Delta 8 Asteroids… take a similarly-sized flower bud and weigh each of them; our Delta 8 Asteroids weigh about 5 times as much!)
Your first glance at a Delta 8 Asteroid may lead you to think that it must be a surface powdering of CBG Kief but once you begin twisting apart a bud you will realize otherwise. And yes, we said “twisting apart” because the Delta 8 distillate is so thickly spread throughout the bud it has the texture and looks of the inside of a gumdrop. As that bud is rolled into our CBG kief, the Delta 8 Distillate that has thoroughly soaked the CBD bud drinks in all that rich powder; in this way, the kief helps to integrate everything into a powerful Asteroid!
PREPARING YOUR DELTA 8 ASTEROIDS
As mentioned in the above paragraph, each Specialist bud used for Delta 8 Asteroids is directly dipped into a Delta 8 distillate. One of the properties that Delta 8 THC is famous for is its stickiness; even after the distillate has “dried” on the bud, it will remain very sticky and gooey. In other words, this is not your typical CBD bud… not at all!
The following guidelines are intended to help you optimize your experience with Delta 8 Asteroids, although there are never any true hard-and-fast rules when it comes to consuming our products, so let your imagination soar and try other methods as well.
BREAKING APART DELTA 8 ASTEROIDS
You can use your fingers to carefully tear apart your Delta 8 Asteroids but it is both tedious and tacky on your fingers and patience. A more elegant and effective answer is to get your hands on a pair of bonsai pruning scissors (you can find them online for less than $10) and spare your fingers the sticky mess and cleanup.
Recognize that you are not trying to grind these into fluffy mounds of evenly shredded flower buds; you really want to break them down into smaller pieces that can be scattered around in the bowl of your pipe.
Due to the density of Delta 8 Asteroid buds in combination with the high Delta 8 distillate content, we do not recommend using traditional grinders, either electric or manual to break up these amazing but thick hemp flower buds.
CLEANUP IS VITAL!
Whether you are using fingers, scissors, clippers, or any other nifty snipping device you find, you want to clean them once you finished prepping your Delta 8 Asteroids and filling your pipe. You have already been forewarned that these Delta 8 Asteroids are very sticky so it is more essential than ever that you develop good maintenance habits.
Your favorite and least expensive cleaning friend is isopropyl alcohol (aka rubbing alcohol); both 70% or 91% dilutions work but the higher percentage kills more germs so use it if you have it. Isopropyl alcohol is super-efficient at removing leftover oils, resins, and other combusted remains left after a smoking (or vaping, which is NOT recommended for Delta 8 Asteroids) session; even better, it removes any sticky Delta 8 distillate still clinging to pipes, skin, or surface.
It may take a few wipes but isopropyl alcohol will do the job thoroughly. By the way, you can pay lots more for “disinfected wipes” or disinfect your own paper towels at a fraction of the price; after all, they are both wiping materials soaked in rubbing alcohol. Save your money by using paper towels and bottles of isopropyl alcohol and use those savings to get more Delta 8 Asteroids or other quality Fern Valley Farms products!
CONSUMING YOUR DELTA 8 ASTEROIDS
We recommend using a pipe for consuming Delta 8 Asteroids; we further recommend that you dedicate one specific pipe specifically for consuming Delta 8 Asteroids. There are two reasons for this:
- Delta 8 Asteroids are designed for all-day sessions, so your pipe will be occupied and ready to fire up when desired
- Your pipe will develop a unique flavor and coating related to Delta 8 THC which can enhance future Delta 8 Asteroid sessions
We further recommend you use a pipe with a good-sized bowl instead of one-hit pipes; you really want a lot of bowl space, as you can pack a Delta 8 Asteroid in it and let it serve your needs and well-being throughout the day.
One of the best tips we have found for facilitating more thorough combustion of Delta 8 Asteroids is to lay down a bed of nicely ground hemp or cannabis in the base of your pipe prior to sprinkling your broken down bits of Asteroids in the pipe bowl. Then after filling the bowl with those bits of Asteroids, cover it all with another layer of hemp or cannabis.
This “sandwich” method of preparation keeps your Delta 8 Asteroids reasonably intact with each broken-down piece still containing CBD flower, CBD kief, and Delta 8 distillate; it also creates an ideal burning arrangement for combusting these Delta 8 Asteroids thanks to the air passages between the pieces and the hemp or cannabis foundation. We have found this method makes combustion of the materials more thorough and the smoking of these Delta 8 Asteroids more effective.
Of course, there are no hard or fast rules when it comes to combusting and enjoying Delta 8 Asteroids. We urge you to try different approaches to find what works best for you and the pipe (or pipes) you are using.
When you start with a freshly packed bowl, patience is demanded. Remember, our premium flowers are always delivered fresh and moist to your door; with Delta 8 Asteroids those moist buds have been drenched in Delta 8 distillate; even with a nice allotment of dry kief thrown into the mix, you are working with an even moister and spongier texture.
You will ultimately get long hits rich with Delta 8 THC, CBD, and CBG throughout the day but prepare to “prime” your pipe with your initial puffs. You will get effects from the first lighting but will need to apply a more constant flame during the early sessions. By using a glass or metal tool for stirring your material between each round of puffing, you will get more rounds from each bowl and the rich combined tastes of our Specialist and CBG Kief, boosted by the dipped Delta 8 distillate, will remain flavorful even in later rounds.
MANAGING YOUR DELTA 8 ASTEROIDS CONSUMPTION
Because our Delta 8 Asteroids contains the highest concentration of Delta 8 THC of all our products extra care and attention should be taken when consuming this amazing yet powerful product. This means we urge all new consumers of Delta 8 Asteroids to start with small amounts and allow plenty of time between each session.
As is the case with smoking any materials containing cannabinoids, you feel effects quite quickly. It’s recommended you begin with shorter, shallower puffs to acquaint yourself with the flavor and effect of a higher concentration of Delta 8 THC.
If you ever feel as if you went overboard by taking too many deep hits in too short a time, taking some CBD, CBG, or CBN can help ease any feeling of discomfort one might feel by consuming too much THC in too short a time. This is more common when people are consuming Delta 9 THC products but can happen to a lesser degree with Delta 8 products, particularly those with a high concentration of Delta 8 THC like our Asteroids.
For your convenience, our recently introduced line of edibles are ideal to soften the effects of Delta 8 THC:
By having a supply of these edibles on hand (we recommend you have all types in your wellness cabinet), you not only have a way to ease Delta 8 effects but you can enjoy a yummy burst of quality cannabinoids while you are enjoying your Delta 8 experience. (To round out your edible experience, we also carry our always-popular Delta 8 Gummies but obviously, those cannot help alleviate the effects of smoking Delta 8 Asteroids!)
LIMITED QUANTITY OPTIONS EXPLAINED
You will note that your shopping options for our Delta 8 Asteroids are limited to two sizes:
- ½ Pound
- 1 Pound
Because this product is particularly sensitive to temperatures, we also limit shipping from Monday through Thursday using overnight delivery to ensure that your product arrives as nearly as fresh as it leaves our farm. For additional security, all orders will require an adult signature upon acceptance, so please plan accordingly.
To maintain the state of freshness in which they arrived, we recommend you store the majority of your product in a cool dark place like a closet. If you have room, you can keep it in the fridge but under no circumstances should you freeze your Delta 8 Asteroids.
Another advantage of purchasing in larger quantities, besides better price breaks, is that you can create your own informal “co-op” with other friends; for instance, with three colleagues, a half-pound of Delta 8 Asteroids works out to two ounces each. If you have interested family, friends, and neighbors, you are well-advised to purchase at least a pound per order.
This is also the perfect time to take advantage of our popular alternative payment option: Sezzle. With this excellent service, you can split your purchase into four interest-free payments, paying only 25% now and another 25% in 2, 4, and 6 weeks out from today. With such easy payments, a one-pound order is economically feasible; if you have family and friends equally eager to take flight with their own supplies, bump that up to two pounds and everyone should be covered for a long happy time!
The best part is no one has to wait longer than 24 hours to fly away on their own private Asteroids, thanks to our overnight delivery policy for this very special product!
