PRODUCT TESTING & SAFETY
Every lot we distribute has test results for potency, ensuring compliance with regulations.
We run full panel tests on products that may contain unsafe compounds including but not limited to pesticides, molds, heavy metals, and residual solvents.
For products impacted by terpene profiles, we include terpene tests.
Clear Delta 8 is produced by processing and filtering amber Delta 8 to pull out residual chlorophyll other compounds which do not contribute to potency or overall effect based on current understandings. One impact caused by this processing is that the distillate becomes more susceptible to oxidation. This can create a pink hue in the oil over time. This is common in many types of distillate and not exclusive to Delta 8.
Our vape cartridges are compatible with any 510-threaded battery. You will need to have a 510 compatible battery in order to use your vape product. Batteries are not included with our vapes and must be purchased separately.
Clogging typically occurs due to oil moving past the coil and when excess vapor condenses along the walls of the inner cartridge as it cools. As oil builds up between the coil and the mouthpiece, the buildup can block the ability to draw from the cart. This can be prevented by taking short, light hits to reduce overheating your oil which will also give your oil a better taste.
We go above and beyond to ensure accurate depiction of our products including their quality and potency specs to avoid misguided expectations. We also do our best to have the highest quality so satisfaction is easily achieved. Even still, we understand there are times when a return or exchange may be desired. All of our products include a tamper-evident seal and are returnable or exchangeable as long as the seal has not been removed or damaged. Returns must be sent back within 5 business days of receipt and be in the same condition they were sent in. Once the item is received back and inspected a refund or exchange is processed.
Nearly all of our products have a recommended best buy date of 1 year. That being said how the product is stored during that time period can heavily impact this estimate. For all purchases, we are happy to provide specifics on best storage practices for preserving the product’s integrity over time just let us know.
UNDERSTANDING THE COMPOUNDS
Delta 8 THC is a psychoactive and intoxicating compound similar to Delta 9 THC that is legal across most US states whereas Delta 9 is still not. More can be read about it on our blog here. Compared to cannabis, it is reported to cause less brain fog and be less dissociative. It is preferred by people who find cannabis gives them anxiety or that want a more consistent and reliable effect.
Delta 8 is a psychotropic compound that causes intoxication when consumed.
CBD is a cannabinoid and Live Resin is the method of extraction used. Live Resin is made by immediately freezing the flower after pulling it down in the field. The process of freezing the plant helps to preserve some of the more delicate photochemistry that is easily lost during the standard method of drying the flower before extraction (as done in the process of making CBD distillate).
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound in the cannabis and hemp plant with proven therapeutic benefits. It is not intoxicating but it is psychoactive. It has shown to be effective in treating a wide range of ailments, and there are currently numerous government-backed clinical studies overviewing what is known. CBD is most effective when taken in combination with the rest of the plant’s compounds and is most often labeled as full or broad spectrum in these cases.
CBD is psychoactive and does affect the mind but it is not psychotropic or intoxicating.
Terpenes exist in almost every plant and fruit and are not limited to hemp and cannabis plants. They are aromatic oils that lure pollinators and aid in repelling predators. Cannabis terpenes come from the same glands that create cannabinoids, and it is thought that they play a role in differentiating the effects of each strain known as the entourage effect.
