We are all familiar with the devil’s lettuce (Marijuana), but you might not be too familiar with hemp flower that is not CBD. Much like cannabis, hemp is smokable and has mild psychoactive effects. This helpful guide will help you discover what infused hemp flower is and some unique blends you won’t find anywhere else!
What is Hemp Flower?
It’s just that! The hemp flower is the bud portion of the hemp plant. The difference between cannabis and hemp is one little component; Delta 9 THC, the primary cannabinoid found in cannabis, gives the high we know and love when smoked.
Though some mild effects when smoked or consumed, hemp flower has a high concentration of CBD and less than 0.3% of Delta 9 THC making it legally compliant and, in its base form, less potent than cannabis.
Infused Hemp flower usually has terpenes, and other cannabinoids, such as hemp-derived Delta 8 THC, which is found in minimal amounts within the hemp plant and can be extracted and later consumed to induce psychoactive effects.
There are ways to make Delta 8 into concentrates or edibles rather than flowers, but for those who like the classic, more natural approach, hemp flower is here for you.

Infused Hemp Flower
Hemp flower alone tends to have a minimal flavor profile and a milder effect than cannabis, but we’re able to infuse hemp flower with other cannabinoids and terpenes. In addition, natural terpenes help improve the flavor, and each strain or flavor has its strengths and benefits. But as mentioned, hemp flower is infused with Delta 8 THC to increase and strengthen psychoactive effects.
Delta 8 and terpenes are added to the flower, increasing the psychoactive effects and perfecting the flavor profile. There is a lot of versatility with infused hemp flower; through the infusion process, you can find indicas, hybrids, and some of your favorite cannabis strains, but it’s legally compliant hemp.
First Ever HXY-11 THC Infused Flower
So what is HXY-11 THC? Though it is another cannabinoid cousin under the THC umbrella, it is found in the body after something with THC is ingested and passes through the liver. An easy way to think about it is that HXY-11 THC is the cannabinoid that makes edibles high slightly different from the high you get when smoking. The common belief is that it’s 2-3 times more potent than THC, which makes sense when you think about how everyone has a story about when an edible hit them like a freight train unexpectedly.
Delta Extrax Flower
Delta Extrax has the first-ever line of hemp flowers infused with HXY-11. We’ve created a unique blend of hemp flowers made up of Delta 8 THC and Delta 10 THC, making its debut in hemp flower, HXY-11 THC. Check out these five new eighths of hemp flower from Delta Extrax.

Trying Hemp Flower
There are countless ways to smoke hemp flowers, some more creative than others. All you need is the flower, some fire, and some smoking device or setup. From bongs and rolling papers for joints to vaporizers and pumpkins, it’s about what you like and what works best for you. Learning individual tolerance and finding the best fit is the best approach when trying something new.
Though it’s best to start with rolling papers or small pipes, they tend to be the most accessible, safe, and cost-effective. Anything you can smoke cannabis or tobacco out of would work the same for hemp flower. Just load up your device, light it, and inhale. So grab your favorite smoking apparatus and try out some new hemp flowers!
