Delta 8: The Molecule, The Myth, The Legend: Part 3 Safety and Best Ways to Take It

Because delta 8 THC is a psychoactive cannabinoid, there are many factors to consider to ensure that the use of delta 8 products is safe and enjoyable for the end user. Delta 8 THC, while similar to delta 9 THC, differs in its potency and derivation. This means that the same basic principles for the creation and use of delta 9 do not apply fully to delta 8 which needs its own standards of creation and use. Setting these standards can ensure a safe delta 8 product for both producer and user alike. In this episode of extrakTALKS, Dr. Jon discuss the safety of creating and using delta 8 thc products. They will identify what makes a safe delta 8 product including the elimination of solvent and acid residuals, legal limits of delta 9 thc, testing for unknowns and much more.
