Delta-8 Products Aren’t Natural
You can drive around most anywhere and see “Delta-8” gummies, vapes, and other products advertised.
Retail establishments are touting these as “CBD products that can give you a high” or “Legal THC” – misleading consumers on two fronts.
First, you need to understand WHY Delta-8 even became “a thing”. Because there was an over-abundance of CBD isolate on the market – due to the over-supply of CBD from hemp (thanks in part to investor-driven companies that never needed to actually SELL anything and were only focused on pumping up their stock price and then dumping the stock) – producers started trying to get ‘creative’ to find a way to turn the glut of CBD into something profitable.
The answer? Synthesizing and transforming that CBD into a “legal” product that can “relieve stress and anxiety” while also potentially getting you “high”.
From an article in “Chemical & Engineering News” with Christopher Hudulla, president and chief scientific officer of ProVerde Laboratories (one of our That’s Natural labs!):
The conversion of CBD to delta-8-THC involves refluxing CBD in an organic solvent, such as toluene or heptane, with p-toluenesulfonic acid or another acid that serves as a catalyst. The reaction is typically run for 60–90 min…
“These are pretty aggressive synthetic conditions that use strong acids,” Hudalla says. “They might be using strong bases to neutralize. They can use metal catalysts. I hear different people doing it different ways.” In a pharmaceutical environment, PhD chemists ensure that products don’t include harmful unconsumed reactants, he says. But nobody is measuring the pH of delta-8 products or testing for strong acids and residual metals that are left behind, he says.
Toluene? Heptane? Metal catalysts? Strong acids? Is THIS what you want to be ingesting in your body? These are very dangerous chemical solvents – companies will say they “get them out” of the product before you consume it… do YOU trust them? That’s Natural has been in the industry for over 7 years and we can tell you to NOT TRUST any company using this type of isolated/synthesized product. The risk is just too great.
