If you have the room, definitely. There are personal home growers — more commonly known as “DIYers” — everywhere recreational cannabis is legal, from Oregon to Amsterdam. The general rule of thumb when growing your own D8 flower is to grow plenty of quality hemp flowers, and orient their growth and nutrition around the development of trichomes. Trichomes are the resinous outgrowths on female hemp flowers, where cannabinoids and terpenes are most heavily concentrated.


Are there challenges to growing it?

Creating good D8 flower can be challenging particularly for new DIYers. First, there are a number of established best practices to maximizing trichome production which can complicate the process, either due to inexperience or budgetary constraints. These include:

  • The use of proper nutrients (soil over hydroponic or aquaponic setups)
  • The constant micromanagement of light, temperature and humidity levels throughout the growth process, given different stages in cannabis’ growth cycle require specific levels of all three
  • The training of growing cannabis plants (light pruning, tying or light deprivation) to direct energy and nutrients to their flowers

Once healthy hemp plants with heavy, resinous trichomes are fully grown, there are the added challenges of independently producing D8 flower. There is the solvent extraction of CBD from your hemp flowers, the use of an acid to convert it into a delta-8 distillate, and the frosting or spraying of the distillate onto other waiting hemp flowers.

While this might all sound daunting to new DIYers, experience and a suitable budget can serve to make it all significantly easier. With time and practice, high quality D8 flower is well within the reach of any independent grower.
