Delta 8 Flower is a perennial. Perennials live for more than two years, growing each year and typically producing flowers in their second or third year. The flowers are pollinated by insects, birds, and other animals. The flower forms as the plant establish and grow a root system to support it.
Best Delta 8 flower grows in wet conditions such as near water or soils with very high water content (wetlands). It can handle drainage that would be too wet for most other plants. Otherwise, it is not particular about soils. It grows to be about two feet tall and wide.
It grows in damp areas along rivers or streams, often a dominant plant in the habitat. Delta 8 Flower is found in large numbers in wet locations such as fens, swamps, and marshes but is also found growing on roadsides and disturbed areas. Its long taproot helps it to survive flooding or drying out between waterings. The leaves that appear in early summer are narrow, lance-shaped (long ribbed), with smooth margins. The flower stalk can be 3-6 feet tall when fully grown. The blossom is usually 5-20 inches long. The bloom period is usually July to September.
The rarely visible flower petals are 5-6 inches long. The leaves of the flower bud are green, but after the bloom, they turn opalescent or cobalt blue. The leaves also turn purple at the tips. The leaves and flower stalks are covered with short, stiff hair.
Basal rosettes of leaves form in the spring and are composed of bluish-green leaves covered with long, glandular hairs. Stems grow up to 5 feet tall, and the inflorescence (flower head) is 10-15 inches wide and has several hundred small, tubular flowers clustered together. Flowers are replaced by seed pods (seed heads) which ripen to a brown or black color in late summer to early fall. It can be found in coastal and semi-desert scrub habitats, on disturbed ground, roadsides, wastelands, and along streams and rivers. Delta 8 Flower is usually found growing in areas with a high water table or saturated by shallow to deep standing pools.
When using Delta 8 Flower for medicinal purposes, it is best to use the flower buds and leaves as they are easier to obtain. The plant’s roots can also be used but will have a more pungent taste and smell than the other parts of the plant. Native Americans have used the stem for several days to treat coughing and shortness of breath. They used a poultice made from the plant to treat wounds, sores, inflammations, swellings, burns, rashes, and damaged skin tissue. The root was chewed as a treatment for toothache, while fresh plants were applied as an eyewash or put into bath water to relieve fatigue and help improve circulation.
In conclusion, the Delta 8 flower is a unique and beautiful plant to grow if you have the proper conditions. Its medicinal uses range from being used as a general tonic to being used in conjunction with goldenseal and comfrey root as a laxative, antiseptic, and wound healer. The root was used for toothache treatment, while fresh plants were applied as an eyewash or put into bath water to relieve fatigue and help improve circulation.
