The Importance of High-Quality Delta 8
From wine to cheese to Delta 8 THC, the importance of high-quality products is more important than ever when the product in question is being consumed or ingested! In our case, we’re referring to Delta 8, a hemp derivative and the form of THC found in our gummies. But why is it so important to consume high-quality Delta 8? And how can you actually determine the quality? Keep reading and soon you’ll be in the know!
To quickly recap Delta 8 in general, it’s a type of naturally occurring THC found in cannabis and a counterpart to the form of THC associated with “getting high,” known as Delta 9. Delta 8 essentially combines CBD (or cannabidiol, the non-psychoactive compound that was legalized by the Farm Bill of 2018) and Delta 9 THC, resulting in an experience that we like to call “less head with more body,” as opposed to the “more head and less body” experience of Delta 9.
With the growing interest in Delta 8 THC, more research and studies into its properties will be sure to reveal even more about its characteristics and ability to help people with a variety of ailments, much like CBD, as well as function with a recreational purpose for those who are interested in wellness, expanding consciousness, and living calmer, less stressful lives.
In addition to products like our Delta 8 Blueberry THC Gummies and Delta 8 Strawberry THC Gummies, Delta 8 is also available in the form of vape juices, oils, and tinctures. The distillate can even be sprayed right onto hemp flower to create what is essentially Delta 8 flower, which can be smoked just like cannabis. Due to this explosion in popularity, Delta 8 is now starting to appear just about everywhere, from states where almost no substances are legal at all to states like California and Michigan, where medical and recreational cannabis are both fully legal.
Because Delta 8 is still so new, it’s more important than ever to be vigilant when it comes to obtaining high-quality products. Keep reading for a few tips to keep you on the right path when looking for high-quality Delta 8.
First, if you live in a state which is legal, make sure to only purchase Delta 8 from fully licensed cannabis stores. Fully licensed stores do have to operate under the rules and regulations of the law, which means you can rest assured that the Delta 8 you find inside a licensed store will be legitimate and tested for quality. Using California as an example, all cannabis products must meet the state’s requirements for manufacturing and testing. That refers to Delta 8 THC just as much as it does to Delta 9, CBD, or any other cannabinoids.
While we do have an old school appreciation for classic head shops, you should avoid them when it comes to Delta 8 THC. Because they are not licensed in the same way that dispensary stores are, you can’t trust that any of the products labeled Delta 8 actually are what they say they are. Pick up a new piece, but stay away from the Delta 8! Similarly, plenty of brands are operating slightly outside the law, selling Delta 8 products that look similar to more legitimate or even well-known brands. If something doesn’t look or feel quite right, it’s probably not.
But here’s our favorite tip of them all: when in doubt, buy directly from the manufacturer online! We may be biased because we are, in fact, a website where you can purchase high-quality Delta 8 products directly online, but we’re not the only ones who consider this to be a rule of thumb. A source no less than Leafly states it succinctly: “When you buy online, you can purchase from a respected retailer or directly from the product manufacturer. A legit brand will usually have a lab test tab on its website, where you can view lab reports on their delta-8 products or request to see them.”
As the case may be, you can absolutely view the results from the lab tests on our Delta 8 on our product pages. If you’re interested in additional information, you can always get in touch with us and we’re more than happy to answer your questions. We are also backed with a payment processor that takes all major credit cards and is operated by a U.S. bank – another major sign that you’re looking at a brand that sells high-quality Delta 8! Our products are third-party tested, with two day shipping and accepting all major credit cards.
If the brand you’re considering requires you to use an app to pay, run away. Payment processors typically will only work with CBD or cannabis brands after checking their lab tests for fraud, so there’s essentially no better marker of high-quality Delta 8 than that!
