Many users report a relaxation so total, it’s hard to leave the couch. GDP’s powerful pain-relieving properties can sooth the roughest afflictions, and the high CBD content melts away stress. But it also produces euphoric feelings and a calm happiness that radiates throughout the body and mind.
Creator of GDP Strain
The strain was introduced in 2003 by celebrated cannabis breeder Ken Estes, who was attempting to create the “ultimate indica.” Taking its coloring and flavor from Purple Urkle and its physical structure from Big Bud, Grand Daddy Purp is greater than the sum of its parts. Widely praised for its euphoric sensations and healing abilities, it’s also one of the first California-bred strains to achieve worldwide renown.
The strain boasts a hefty dose of terpenes that contributes to its smell, taste, and effects. Dominated by a Myrcene, which has been used for centuries for sleep and relaxation, GDP’s complete terpene profile is an all-star roster of fragrant and beneficial molecules. The sweet-smelling Bisabolol, which is found in chamomile flowers, has become widely sought after for its anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects. While other GDP terpenes, like Limonene and Pinene, supply both a natural fragrances and organic stress relief.
Organic Farming Practices
Grown in a light-assisted greenhouse, then cut and dry-cured over 12-14 days, the Grand Daddy Purple Delta 8 hemp flower is made with 100% organic farming practices to ensure it is the safest, most-effective, and most natural Delta 8 flower on the market. Every batch is lab-tested to ensure it meets the federal government requirement of containing less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC.
The Delta 8 THC itself is produced via a solvent free method that converts CBD to Delta 8 THC. The result is melted onto the CBD flower, then kiefed, and finally put in a pressurized container and then distillated into the flower.
What is Delta 8 THC?
Delta-8 THC is a psychoactive molecule that occurs naturally within hemp and marijuana plants. It’s a double-bonded cannabinoid that contains all the same atoms as Delta 9 THC (commonly referred to simply as “THC”) but combined into a different formation. It is federally legal, and available to purchase by adults in the great majority of states.
Does Delta 8 Get You High?
It can be easy to assume that because Delta 8 is federally legal and is made from CBD bud that it doesn’t get users high. But that’s wrong. Delta 8 hemp flower delivers a gentle, mellow high that functions like regular THC, but to a lesser degree.
Once inhaled or ingested, Delta 8 THC interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system through the same channels as regular THC. As it plugs into the CB1 and CB2 receptors throughout the body, Delta 8 THC causes the same feelings of wonder and happiness that constitute the marijuana high. However, because Delta 8 is less powerful than Delta 9, the high is less intense — and many users prefer it.
The high from Delta 8 has been described as more clear-headed and subtle than a normal high, which makes it a great initiation for new users. It’s also safer. Because Delta 8 hemp flower has a high CBD content and creates a much milder high, the chances of taking too much Delta 8 are slim. CBD naturally counteracts the negative psychoactive effects of THC, and the less-potent effects of Delta 8 mean that users who are sensitive to THC can continue to reap the pain-reliving benefits of THC without fear of accidentally overdoing it.
While every Delta cartridge and flower produces a less-intense high than Delta 9, it’s still possible over-consume. The best advice for users first trying any cannabis product, including Delta 8 THC, is to start with a very small amount and increase your intake gradually.
