The Delta-8 THC marketplace and the companies that occupy it are a murky sea with choppy waters. But, in the distance, a lighthouse guides those lost and looking for a reliable brand. That lighthouse is Hometown Hero CBD.
A Texas-based hemp company specializing in CBD, Delta-8 and Delta-9 products, these guys are creating the absolute best across the board while also donating portions of every sale to veterans in need.
The best Delta-8 gummy, tincture, and flower, according to my prior tests and rankings, all belong to Hometown Hero. Superior taste, superior potency, and superior lab results. These are the core pillars of this brand. And though their prices leave them sitting near the higher end of most categories, you’re truly getting what you pay for. They are clean, they are strong, and if you’re going to explore Delta-8, they’re absolutely the number one choice.
The easiest way to highlight this company is simply by saying this…it is all very good. Not a single product in the Hometown lineup falls short in terms of potency. These highs are noticeably different from most of their competitors, it feels cleaner and lasts longer. Newbies and experienced cannabis users alike will enjoy these products; the wide range of consumption methods ensures each person can find something that works for them. Not only is the packaging of Hometown Hero CBD unique enough to stand out from the competition, the flavors are hands down the best tasting currently available. The gummies are like candy, the tinctures are fruity, and the flower delivers a crisp smoke.

Delta-8 Max Grape Gummies: This is the strongest gummy one can buy from Hometown Hero. A new addition to their catalog, these gummies pack 100mg of Delta-8 into each tiny grape cube. Don’t even get me started on the flavor, this is the tastiest edible I’ve ever eaten. It’s like a grape sour patch candy, brilliantly sweet.
Delta-8 Raygun Flower: Raygun is a strain unique to this company and it’s genuinely worth testing out. Of any Delta-8 flower I’ve smoked, this was the strongest. Its skunky notes replicate cannabis and its effects are no different than a solid high. It comes in pre-rolls or jars of flower.
Hometown Hero Delta-8 Max Grape Gummies
Hometown Hero recently rolled out these new Max Delta-8 Grape Gummies. This is their crown jewel of potent products. Each gummy packs a punch of 100mg of Delta-8 THC. Each pack contains 10 gummies giving you a total of 1,000mg of Delta-8.
This is the type of gummy you take when the main destination ahead of you is a couch. Potency, one would think, is the main draw but on top of being the strongest delta-8 gummies these are also the best tasting on the market. The grape flavor is like a fresh grape soda on a hot summer’s day.
Within 30 minutes the initial daze set in and three hours later I was still feeling a high that I described in my notepad as, “Destroyed.” Each pack is $60, that’s a toll worth paying for the wild ride that lies ahead.
An all-black pouch that looks like a government black box houses these potent little delights. Rip open the tab on top and start enjoying, it’s as simple as that. Upon the first bite, your mouth will enter a world of flavor that would make Willy Wonka smile. It’s hard to eat just one, and given their strength, that can be quite the dilemma. If you forget their potency and admire the taste, you may end up floating through space. The effects set in quick, about 30 minutes, and lasted as long as 3 hours. The body felt relaxed, the mind felt at ease, and the legs eventually melted into jelly. It’s the perfect edible.
Effects felt: Deeply relaxed, a mix of a body and a head high, couch-locking chilness, tired
Good for: Late night consumption, chilling on the couch, staying inside
Not good for: Daytime consumption, those needing to stay alert and awake
Unique only to Hometown Hero, Raygun is a Delta-8 THC flower strain made from infusing Delta-8 distillate with high quality CBD. Each gram of Raygun has 250mg of Delta 8 THC and every bottle has 3.5 grams. It’s also available in pre-rolls, as a half ounce, and by-the-pound.
This strain supplies an uplifting high that reduces anxiety and helps you move productively throughout your day. It was the strongest Delta-8 flower we had tested compared to a dozen other brands. You’ll be paying a premium but you’ll also be smoking a premium.
A smooth Delta-8 flower is hard to find but that’s exactly what Raygun is. The immediate skunky smell quickly transitions to an earthy taste that’s as easy on the lungs as it is on the palate. Before the joint could even end, the effects had started to set in. I immediately felt a wave of peace come over me and felt my energy shift upward, this was the perfect strain to keep me moving throughout the day. All of the options, pre rolls or flower, come in their own creatively designed plastic tubes and are easily smoked through joints, bowls, vapes, or whatever method you prefer.
Another award winning product from Hometown Hero, this Delta-8 berry tincture not only was our best overall tested but also took home trophies at the High Times Hemp Cup. Like every other Hometown Hero product this tincture is strong, but since it can be measured in droplets it may be the easiest high to control. This measured dosage allows you to consume it at any point of the day, adjusting quantities when the time is right for a stronger high.
Unlike most other Delta-8 tinctures this one has very little aftertaste and a flavoring that isn’t too overpowering. It doesn’t have to overcompensate because there’s no bitterness needed to distract from. The $50 price tag is high but not crazy when compared to other tinctures, especially considering this one comes with clean ingredients.
A beautiful glass vial with pink and purple graphics welcomes you to the fruity blend of Hometown Hero’s Delta-8 tincture. This dropper is easy to use and allows consumers to ration out their high however they see fit. Simply place the oil under the tongue and let it dissolve. A berry flavor will quickly join you for the ride, it’s a subtle flavor but enough to make the experience enjoyable. Within 30 minutes expect to feel effects that pulsate throughout the body and mind, the soreness will be dissolved and happiness will be created.
Effects felt: Body and head high, increased happiness, body pains alleviated
Good for: Soreness, all day use, physical activities
Not good for: Those who may be sensitive to certain textures
With 10mg CBD, 10mg Delta-9 THC, and minor cannabinoids in each gummy, Hometown Hero has created a select spectrum gummy that promotes the entourage effect for increased benefits. These gummies are created in three flavors and because of their careful creation from hemp-derived flower, they’re legal in all 50 states.
Given the low dosage, these chews are perfect to maintain positive energy throughout the day. And the taste is yet again another win from Hometown Hero. Whoever makes flavors at their company is truly crushing it. Sunkist makes a candy chew and these are damn near perfect replicas. Each pack has 10 gummies and at $40 is one of the most affordable products on their line.
Though the packaging is the basic resealable bag most dealers use for flower and edibles, the graphics immediately stand these chews out. Skeleton-looking hands, a bright orange matte finish, and swirling white smoke draw the eyes to this branding. Upon first bite you’re yet again transported to a candy shop, cannabis takes a backseat in the mind while you enjoy this jovial treat. Unlike their potent Delta-8 gummies, this is a more subdued option that doesn’t knock you off your ass. It’s perfect for the new consumer or someone looking to go about their day without hindrance. Expect calming emotions, heightened focus, and a general easiness added to your energy.
Effects felt: Moderate buzz, uptick in energy, enhanced mood
Good for: Working out with, dealing with pains and aches, any hour of the day
