How To Find A Reliable Delta 8 Brand

The D8 industry is still highly unregulated and filled with not-so-great brands. Here's how to find one you can trust. Created with Eighty Six.

You might think that in a world where cannabis seems to have reached a peak in normalization, there wouldn’t be any fake cannabis products or illegal weed with hazardous chemicals rubbed on it in the market. I thought so too for a long time.

Unfortunately:

There will always be people who are out for a quick buck and have zero respect for the health of the people consuming these products.

That’s why you should always try taking a look at different opinions before you purchase a product, and that’s also one of the main reasons why websites like Herb exist.

To give you insight into brands that you can trust and validate them before they make their way to your smoke stash.

It is true, however, that most of the risk is carried by brand new product categories like Delta 8 THC, Delta 10 THC, and THC-P. Because they are so new, regulations may not entirely cover them just yet.

Or the legal aspect of them is living in a grey area, for the time at least. 

In this case in particular, knowing exactly what and who you purchase something from becomes even more important.

It’s as if you had to buy weed from a strange guy (a.k.a. your dealer), that you later became friends with, or maybe entirely avoided after your first meeting.

You want to make sure you can trust that guy.

That’s why brands like Eighty Six have done everything right to bring you safe, pure, and effective Delta 8 THC products.

Because they believe, as we do, that weed should be affordable and safe. 

And how could you not trust these guys?

Things To Look Out For When Buying Delta 8

Third Party Lab Testing

Eighty Six provides certificates for absolutely all their Delta 8 products. Lab testing is not only supposed to tell you that you can trust a certain product. I

t’s also supposed to tell you that you can trust the results you’re reading. Third party testing ensures both of those.

The quality of your Delta 8 extract will depend on the impurities you can find in the product. And that is something you can only find out if you have the proper testing available.

Any reputable Delta 8 brand will provide the results of those tests to their customers.

But tests are not there only for residual chemicals and heavy metals, they also exist because you want to make sure that all the ingredients in your product, regardless of whether they’re safe or not, are ingredients you actually want to consume.

If you don’t want to consume Delta 9 THC, for instance, you’ll want to make sure that it is that way.

Reputation & Reviews

Like we said before, doing your research on the brand you’re buying products from is a must.

What is the cannabis community saying about the product? Checkout some Reddit pages or cannabis publications and take a look at the online forums.

It also wouldn’t hurt looking at customer reviews. Even though they seem to be less and less helpful every time, the fact that there are 5 stars up there should tell you something about the product.

Policies & Service

Customer service is one that you don’t want to have to use, but if you do, it better be a great one. Also, check out the company’s policies and see what that would mean for you if you become a client.

But that doesn’t mean that customer service should wait until after you make a purchase. You can test the customer service by asking a few questions before you decide on a product.

Pay attention to how long it takes and how helpful the advice is. Especially if you don’t know much about Delta 8, a good customer service will point you to the right product for you.

Popularity

Even though Delta 8 is fairly new in the market, you can pretty much tell when a brand is worth the squeeze if you know where to look.

Once again, a good Reddit forum should tell you a lot about a brand. If the brand is popular then you will probably be getting some pretty good Delta 8 products.

What They Stand For

The last thing that I can think of that would validate a Delta 8 THC brand is what they stand for.

Meaning, what they do for the world and community outside of the cannabis industry.

Having something to stand for could let you know if a brand is trustworthy or not.
