If you are a retailer and are exploring the possibility of selling Delta 8 products, you’ll likely want to know more about Delta 8 THC before you begin. You will also need an experienced wholesaler to guide you and provide you with a quality product. In this vein, we’ve put together some of the most essential questions about Delta 8 THC and answered them. We’ll also tell you why we believe you should stock your shelves with our products.
What You Need to Know About Delta 8 THC
What is Delta 8?
Delta 8, Delta-8, D8 THC, and Delta 8 THC are all names for the specific Delta 8 THC molecule found in the cannabis plant. This molecule is a phytocannabinoid, just like cannabidiol (CBD) and Delta 9 THC (more commonly known as just “THC”).
How is Delta 8 THC different from the THC in marijuana?
The well-known THC that is found in marijuana is Delta 9 THC. Only a few tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) molecules are currently known – Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC being the most recognized. While molecularly similar, they do affect the body differently. Delta 9 THC creates an intense psychotropic effect in the user and the feeling of being high. Delta 8 THC, on the other hand, has far less of an intoxicating effect and delivers more of a good feeling throughout the body. Users of Delta 8 THC have also reported that they do not experience the same side-effects like paranoia and anxiousness as they do with products like marijuana with high Delta 9 THC content.
How is Delta 8 THC created?
Unlike CBD and other cannabinoids, Delta 8 THC is only found in less than 1% of the mature hemp plant. Therefore, it has to be created through a chemical process that turns CBD or other cannabinoid isolate into Delta 8 THC to be commercially profitable.
Is Delta 8 THC legal?
Yes, Delta 8 THC is legal on a federal level. However, 14 states so far have made it illegal to sell or use within their borders.
Why You Should Sell Our Delta 8 Products
Many factors go into creating a premium quality Delta 8 THC product. However, you will find that The Hemp Doctor stands head and shoulder above our competitors everywhere it counts. When it comes to being a wholesale distributor who can supply you with Delta 8 THC products you are proud to place on your shelves, you can call on The Hemp Doctor.
The first factor you should be aware of is that we only use hemp grown in the United States to make our hemp-derived products. This is important because the hemp plant has a unique ability to draw toxins from the soil in which it’s planted. Hemp is so good at this that fields of it were planted around the Chernobyl nuclear disaster site to clean up the soil. Because of this, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has established strict guidelines for American hemp farmers on how they must grow their hemp. This ensures that U.S. hemp is not grown in soils containing toxins and heavy metals and is grown without pesticides. However, Imported hemp may not be grown under these conditions and may contain toxins and molds that make their way into the final product.
The second factor to consider is how the hemp oil is extracted from the hemp plant. Delta 8 THC is created from this hemp extraction, so the purity of the original hemp oil that it is produced from is of utmost importance. Cheaper extraction methods use solvents and hydrocarbons that may leave residual toxins. Therefore, we only use advanced methods like Supercritical CO2 extraction, which leaves nothing behind but pure hemp oil.
The final and most important factor to consider is that an independent laboratory has tested every product we wholesale to you. This is important for many reasons, but the most essential reason is based on the fact that the hemp products industry, including Delta 8 THC, is not overseen by the Food and Drug Administration. This means that there is no oversight of the content or labeling of hemp products. The lack of oversight opens the door for unscrupulous manufacturers to mislabel their products and make wild claims about their content. It also allows for unhealthy and even toxic ingredients to be included in these final products.
You, as a retailer, are liable for any damage that your products may cause to the end-user. Without having access to the Certificate of Analysis (COA) released by an independent laboratory, you have no guarantee that the Delta 8 THC products you are retailing are safe for the consumer to use. This is why we at The Hemp Doctor have all of our wholesale products tested, and we make the COA for those products available to our retailers. By inspecting these lab reports, you can be sure that the label on the product is accurate and that the product itself is not harmful to the end user – thereby helping to keep you out of legal hot water.
