Why Should You Care About Delta 8 Quality?

With hemp trending across the country, it has become relatively easy to find Delta 8. You can easily locate it at your local hemp store or vape shop—but online? That’s a whole other level of availability.

Doing a quick surf around the internet, you will be bombarded with various brands, with some being much lower in price than others.

You may wonder—is the price an indicator of quality?

Unfortunately, yes. Today, there are a few retailers that sell cheap knock-offs that have not been through the strenuous process needed to ensure the safety of the product. Some possible consequences of this may include: 

  • Poor ingredients
  • Not lab-tested
  • Possibility of harmful chemicals
  • Lack of quality assurance

There is no argument that products made based on quality, not price, will give you the experience you are hoping for.

Check COAs

Before we get into the importance of COAs, let's break down what they are and why they matter.

A certificate of analysis (COA) is a third-party lab report that presents the product’s chemical makeup. This document will showcase the contents of a batch or individual product, which will report:

  • Terpenes
  • Cannabinoids
  • Contaminants 

This certificate allows companies to confidently distribute Farm Bill compliant products and enable their customers to review what they are consuming.

Usually, a QR code will be on the packaging to lead you to the COA. From here, you can review the information to ensure that it is an authentic document.

Avoid Websites That Use Cash Apps for Payments

A red flag that a company is attempting to scam their customers is when they ask for money to be wired, paid through a mobile payment app, or reloaded cards. The reason for these methods is because scammers want a payment method that is quick and makes it difficult for you to get your money back.
