How to Make Delta 8

How to make Delta 8 Distillate isn't complicated. Through an aging process, the Delta 9 compound oxidizes into an isomer known as Δ8-THC. These two phytocannabinoids are analogs that share the same structural formula but have a slightly different arrangement of atoms. The molecular similarities provide similar therapeutic avenues with different psychoactive effects.



1. Extraction from plant material 2. Created through chemistry using distillate or isolate


Delta-8 THC is primarily found in only trace amounts in dried cannabis flower. These buds often contain less than 1% of the compound, meaning traditional means of smoking or vaporizing won't due. In order to produce a substantial amount of the molecule, a specialized extraction, isolation, conversion and refinement practice must be performed. An example of the potency of a Delta-8-THC distillate, we look to a D8 product sample batch which resulted in the following chemical make-up: Delta-8-THC = 58% Delta-9-THC = 7.9% Cannabidiol (CBD) = .35%


Delta 8 can be made using a base of distillate or isolate and through a reaction becomes Delta 8.
