When we were building our shortlist of CBD hemp flower strains to include in our Delta 8 collection, our Sour Special Sauce CBD hemp flower strain was one of the first to hit the list. As one of our more unusual Indica strains that can help either day or night, along with the creative bursts that seem to emerge after a session with this Sour Special Sauce CBD hemp flower strain, we were sure the addition of the Delta 8 THC compound would further those excellent effects.
We have to toot our own horn and tell you we were spot on when we decided to put our Sour Special Sauce CBD hemp flower strain through the Delta 8 Cold Infusion process. The end result is a robust Indica hemp flower strain bristling with a phenomenal 26.38% Delta 8 THC content. You will definitely benefit from the psychotropic effects this compound is capable of delivering on top of the classic effects our Sour Special Sauce already brings to your table!
The Delta 8 Cold Infusion 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 Special Sauce 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.
