ABOUT DELTA 8 SOUR ELEKTRA CBD SHAKE/TRIM
You will find that our Delta 8 Sour Elektra CBD shake/trim offers the same cannabinoid and terpene profiles as the full Delta 8 hemp flower strain, just at a slightly reduced level.
Here is a summary of the full Delta 8 Sour Elektra hemp flower strain:
- Compounds: 17.59% D8; 7.45% CBD
- Effects: Relaxation/Even Energy/Clear Focus
- Flavor: Citrus/Berry/Diesel Hint
- Type: Sativa Dominant
- Usage: Any Time
Please note that the potency and taste levels may be a bit milder than the above descriptions, as this is the very nature of shake/trim content. Still, if you crunch the numbers you will be very impressed at the high level of cannabinoids you can purchase in this form. The bottom line is that, if you want the most cannabinoids for your bucks, nothing beats our shake/trim!

Consumer Tip: Many customers get the original larger hemp flower buds along with shake/trim. They save their larger, more expensive hemp flower buds for special occasions (or when the need for stronger effects arises) and use their shake/trim more regularly, thus saving lots of money while still benefiting from the effects of their favorite strains. Another popular method is to start with a nice large bud (in either a joint, pipe, or vaporizer) and then shift to consuming shake/trim to maintain the effects triggered by the original big bud.
As you can see, there are lots of options available to you with our premium shake/trim collection!
ABOUT FERN VALLEY FARMS PREMIUM SHAKE/TRIM
As you can see from the broad variety of cannabinoid products we offer – tinctures, lotions, edibles, multiple flower strains, kief, etc. – the hemp plant is not only very efficient at producing valuable compounds like cannabinoids and terpenes but is equally adept at distributing those important properties throughout the plant material. Of course, a large percentage will be found in the flower buds but a properly cultivated hemp plant literally brims over with its abundance of cannabinoids and terpenes.
This bounty of rich cannabinoids is even found on nearby leaves and the small bits of hemp flower buds that will naturally fall to the wayside during the normal harvesting process. These “sugar leaves,” along with a natural portion of kief remaining after collection, may not hold the same high potency as found in the hemp flower buds but they come close. For instance, if the hemp flower buds register a 15% CBD potency, chances are quite good that the shake/trim would clock in with a CBD potency of about 13% to 14%.
This means that any shake/trim you purchase from Fern Valley Farms will deliver similar effects as enjoyed when consuming full-sized flower buds from the same strain.
What really makes shake/trim attractive are its extremely low prices in comparison to full flower buds. In fact, our shake/trim is so affordable a ¼ pound costs less than just one ounce of our premium hemp flower (which everyone agrees is already priced astonishingly low) but brings similar flavor and effects as the more luxurious buds with a slightly higher cannabinoid content!
Finally, this shake/trim receives the same potent and effective Delta 8 Cold Infusion treatment that the rest of this same Sour Elektra CBD hemp flower strain receives. If you are looking to maximize the cannabinoid bang from your bucks, look no further than our amazing line of premium CBD (and CBG) hemp shake/trim treated with Delta 8 THC distillate!
So what can one do with shake/trim?
Actually, you may find more ways to prepare and consume shake/trim as compared to our full-sized buds! We consider our premium shake/trim to be a truly all-purpose product since it can be consumed in the following manners:
- Joints – hardly any grinding is required prior to rolling up joints, but you should pull out any spare twigs that could tear your paper
- Pipes – you will find the texture of the shake/trim to be ideal for loading pipes with minimal preparation
- Vaporizers – just like pipes, vaporizing a chamber filled with shake/trim takes no time to prepare but delivers excellent flavors and effects
- Foods – you don’t need to be a master chef to get the most out of edibles infused with the CBD found in shake/trim
- Drinks – making teas or infusing CBD into various liquids is another method for delivering cannabinoids to your system
- Lotions – CBD not only can soothe and ease discomfort but it also keeps your skin smooth and hydrated
- Tinctures – while creating tinctures requires more time, the savings you can realize by learning how to make your own CBD oils can be huge
Okay, we’re pretty sure you are familiar with joints, pipes, and vaporizers. The preparation is minimal and simple. But if foods, drinks, lotions, and tinctures appear daunting, we find a little experience goes far in making you comfortable with these more involved processes.
Granted, it may appear that creating your own CBD lotions and tinctures may be a longer-term goal but as with any other process, practice makes perfect. And when you consider the low price of shake/trim, you are given plenty of room for errors and can still end up with cannabinoid-infused products at a fraction of typical retail prices.
There is also a degree of satisfaction and accomplishment when you do learn to master processes that allow you to create your own lotions and tinctures. As with any skill, it’s best to start simply, so we recommend you first try cooking with cannabinoids. To help build your skills, we suggest you visit our blog where we regularly publish articles offering tips and instructions for using shake/trim to create your own culinary cannabinoid-infused creations.
THE DELTA 8 COLD INFUSION TREATMENT PROCESS
The introduction of the cold infusion process has been a major gamechanger when it comes to treating CBD hemp flower strains with Delta 8 distillate. As the name “cold infusion” implies, instead of heating the Delta 8 distillate to a level that allows the oil to flow smoothly, we freeze the distillate until it is completely solid. We then pulverize the frozen Delta 8 distillate into a powder and toss it into a container with buds from the chosen hemp flower strain. This is then vigorously agitated so that the powdered Delta 8 THC distillate evenly coats the entire flower, all the way down to the stem.
This method avoids the difficulty of the heated treatment process, which involves maintaining a constant temperature warm enough to allow the distillate to be sprayed evenly across all the plant material. Even when sprayed well, the distillate tends to stay on the surface plant material instead of spreading into the numerous nooks and crannies found on a typical hemp bud.
The end result of the cold infusion treatment process is a purer and truer blending of the Delta 8 THC compound with the cannabinoids contained in the hemp flower strain, all performed without the use of any solvents.
IMPORTANT NOTE CONCERNING CONSUMPTION OF DELTA 8 PRODUCTS: As with all Delta 8 products we offer, we urge you to practice extra caution particularly with the first use of any new product that contains the Delta 8 compound. We strongly recommend that you consume this product in very small doses (as compared to your usual consumption practices for this CBD flower strain). Please wait at least 30 minutes between each dosage session.
While Delta 8 THC does not produce effects as pronounced as its counterpart, Delta 9 THC, the Delta 8 THC compound can still produce a mild degree of psychotropic effects. The addition of Delta 8 THC to this Sour Elektra CBD flower strain will not only enhance or amplify the effects you normally enjoy when consuming this strain but can include other effects, including psychotropic reactions or experiences.
(To better educate yourself about Delta 8 THC, we recommend our blog article “Investigating Delta 8 THC” which explores this new compound in much greater detail.)
