Concentrated Concepts is a hemp company with a new line of Delta 8 products that are taking the industry by storm. All of its products are compliant with the Farm Act and contain less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC. Each product also features a QR code on the packaging that can be used to view its D8 test results.
Concentrated Concepts carries Delta 8 products ranging from premium flower to flavored vape cartridges—and even shisha for your hookah.
Besides Delta 8, the company also offers hemp flowers, gummies, tinctures, isolates, and apparel.
For this Concentrated Concepts review, we try out the company's Stoney Pebbles Delta 8 Vape Cartridge and the Grape Ape D8 Flower.
The Concentrated Concept’s Stoney Pebbles D8 Vape Cartridge comes in an efficient plastic case featuring an image of pebble-y, multicolored cereal. The cartridge is compatible with 510 threaded vape batteries and contains 1ml of very viscous Delta 8 distillate.
Don’t underestimate the D8 like I did—I hit the vape for 10 seconds (a blinker, as some call it) and immediately went into a quick coughing fit.
The taste is slightly sweet and fruity on the inhale, with a clean distillate taste on the exhale. I would recommend doing shorter hits in succession.
But if you want longer hits, wait for the distillate to warm up.
Concentrated Concepts did not go overboard with added terps, and for that I am grateful. When it comes to products that have a tailored flavor as opposed to a specific genetic background, there are more misses than there are hits.
The effect was quick, and I can see why some people find Delta 8 almost indistinguishable from D9. On the other hand, I could see how some people might think that something is missing.
If I had to put it into words, what’s missing is that “my face is melting” feeling, along with that build-up of pressure directly behind the eyes.
That being said, I am high, stoney-high, and all without any D9.
Ease of use: 5/5
Overall score: 4.93/5
The Concentrated Concept’s Grape Ape D8 Flower comes in a sealed black bag with the faint image of grapes and a purple ape on the front. It also has a clear viewing window of the Grape Ape flower on the back.
The bag nominally contains 1 gram of premium cannabis flower with a total 30.21% cannabinoids—but still less than 0.3% D9 THC.
When I opened the bag, I immediately noticed the smell. It was sweet, almost saccharine, and distinctively grape-y. The buds were well-trimmed and well-cured, so I decided to grind up a nug of the Grape Ape flower by hand.
It wasn’t too sticky and broke up perfectly, which made it easy to load into the water pipe’s bowl.
As I ripped away, I noted subtle grape terpenes on the inhale and exhale. Soon after, I felt the effects.
Some people call D8 the “diet” or “lite” version of D9 THC. Interestingly, the process that extracts the D8 flower is actually a pretty involved one. The base D8 flower is an industrial hemp flower that is sprayed with D8 sourced from industrial hemp extract as well as terpenes.
Thanks to this, you will definitely experience what is called the "entourage" effect when smoking it.
The Grape Ape also hit me with a stone-y feeling, just like the Stoney Pebbles. However, it didn’t make me sink into the couch and leave me with no energy. Instead, I remained productive in my seat.
Just like with D9, the actual percentage of THC isn’t what matters in terms of what kind of high you’ll get; instead, it’s the other terpenes and cannabinoids present that dictate the high.
Overall, The Grape Ape is a tasty, well-rounded product that left me feeling great.
Ease of use: 5/5
