Delta-8 THC products have skyrocketed onto the market within the last few years, especially in markets that still haven’t legalized recreational cannabis. With its new rise to fame and popularity, it is important to not only understand what is delta 8 , but also understand the best practices for choosing which brands and products to buy. This blog will cover a detailed explanation on how to make a sophisticated choice when choosing your next Delta 8, Delta 10 or any other hemp derived products.
Here at Goldenleaf we only source products from companies that lab test their vapes and edibles on a regular basis. There are tons of brands that do not test their products and that is why we only sell top quality. Regardless whether you buy from us or not, we advise everyone to only get products that have Certificates of Authentication.
The Delta 8 THC Dilema
Delta 8 appears as a wonderful product, allowing those who live where cannabis is outlawed to experience some of the benefits of cannabinoids (in a much milder way). Despite its very obvious benefits (elevated mood, decreased anxiety, alleviating nausea, pain management, sleep-aid etc), Delta 8 is plagued by a variety of issues stemming from the fact it exists in virtually unregulated markets: outside of state licensed and state regulated cannabis stores. This means that the government is not playing a large role in the testing of Delta 8 vapes, cartridges and gummies.
Since 2019, there have been multiple studies highlighting the corner cutting and unsafe practices of various Delta 8 manufactures who do not have their customers interests in mind. These studies show a multitude of cases where Delta 8 products contain harmful pesticides and chemicals such as Vitamin E oil.
This places the responsibility of testing and safe practices onto the retailers and individual consumers.
How Do I Know What I’m Buying?
Fortunately for us, there are a few steps we can take to better understand what is in your Delta 8 and where it is coming from.
