How to Make Delta 8 Sprayed Flower

Delta 8 is a compound found in both cannabis and hemp plants. It exists naturally in both plants in trace amounts but can also be synthesized through chemistry.

In this blog post we will cover what sprayed flower is as well as commonly used methods for production.

WHAT IS SPRAYED FLOWER ?

Sprayed flower is a less process heavy version of a moon rock. It makes hemp flower that resembles cannabis’ more frosty appearance and boosts cannabinoid and secondary compound levels. It consists of flower as the base, layered with distillate and kief.

THE IMPORTANT VARIABLES 

LEGALITY

Sprayed flower can be made using all legally compliant material but some choose not to. Ensure you are sourcing from someone who is using compliant material.

FLOWER VARIABLES

  • Density
  • Color

With the flower it’s important to have dense buds that won’t break into small pieces during the spraying process. Another important consideration is the starting color of the flower. The best outcome comes from lighter green CBD flower. This is because the flower darkens after the distillate application. If you begin the process with a average or darker green flower you will end up with flower that is undesirable in color.

DISTILLATE VARIABLES

  • Broad Spectrum
  • Full Spectrum
  • CBD
  • CBG
  • Delta 8

Full or broad spectrum distillate can both be used with single or compounded cannabinoid profiles. Deciding which to use is dependant on a variety of factors including intended product use, customer demographic and local and industry wide market factors. A recent trend across product formulations has seen compounded cannabinoid profiles on the rise.

Delta 8 distillate can also be used and is popular in markets with legalized medical and recreational cannabis use.

KIEF VARIABLES

  • CBD
  • CBG
  • Screening and purity

With kief the main consideration is getting the color you want and making sure it’s compliant on Delta 9 levels. Using CBG kief is a the option preferred by most since it checks both boxes.

Due to the blonde color og CBG kief, it resembles cannabis trichomes more closely than the greener alternative, CBD kief. It’s also less likely than CBD kief to breach the .3% threshold of compliant levels of Delta 9.

Kief that has been screen will have less plant matter and be a purer product but this will also impact that levels of Delta 9. Less screened material is a way to ensure compliance on CBD kief.

TERPENE VARIABLES

  • Quality
  • Hemp or Non-Hemp Derived
  • Aroma Profiles

Terpenes are an optional addition that enhance flower lacking aroma or where a more desirable terpene profile is preferred. It does not have to be added and depending on your market can be considered a positive or negative.

Some terpenes are made with a higher quality process then others and have profiles that smell less contrived. Two of the most popular companies are TruTerpenes and Abstraxx Tech. Abstraxx comes at a higher price but had our preferred versions of the in demand aroma profiles.

Hemp derived terpenes are more desired in some markets and in others where aroma matters more, botanically derived are preferred. Hemp terpenes cost more at this time so that is another point to consider.

Terpenes are also commonly added to Delta 8 vape cartridges for flavor and aroma.

SPRAY GUN VARIABLES

  • Mist and particulate size
  • Mystery variable

On your spray gun choice you’ll want to make sure to find a gun that won’t clog with the viscosity of the distillate. You also want to ensure that the size of the droplets is fine enough to create an even texture across the flower.

The mystery variable is one we will leave for now but can be solved.

TUMBLER VARIABLES

  • Device type

With your tumbling device the priority is getting something that will evenly coat the CBD flower with Kief and distillate during spraying. We have seen modified concrete mixers as one option. Whatever you choose, the gentlest tumbling motion is a priority. You don’t want the hemp flower broken into pieces during this part of the process.

THE STEPS TO MAKING DELTA 8 SPRAYED HEMP FLOWER

1.  PREP FLOWER

  • Make sure it is properly trimmed with as much stem removed as possible. Kiefed stems is a waste of kief and doesn’t look great.

2.  PREP DISTILLATE

  • Distillate need to be less viscous, there are a variety of ways to do this including adding terpenes.
  • Don’t use ingredients that should not be consumed or combusted, be ethical

3.  PUT FLOWER INTO A TUMBLER

  • Use a slow enough tumbling speed to evenly and carefully apply the distillate

4.  APPLY THE DISTILLATE TO THE FLOWER

  • Finely and evenly mist the distillate onto the hemp flower

5.  APPLY THE KIEF TO THE FLOWER

  • Finely and evenly apply the kief onto the hemp flower
