Here we go again. It seems like just yesterday that our favorite government agencies were telling us how CBD gummies and CBD oils were the most dangerous products on earth. The Food and Drug Administration, the Drug Enforcement Agency, and other three-letter government agencies were all over our televisions about the scourge of hemp-based products. Until finally, thanks to the Farm Bill of 2018, hemp and all of its byproducts were made legal. While we never thought we’d say this, we owe a big thanks to the men and women of the United States Congress.
But like a bad sequel to a horror movie (is there any other kind?), these federal agencies are back to telling us that Delta-8 THC is the worst of the worst. And listen, we get it — there are plenty, if not too many, distributors out there who use less than ethical practices. There’s always someone who’s willing to put money before safety, and as consumers, you have to be very careful when you make your choices. Here at Diamond CBD, we’re very conscious of your needs as Delta-8 THC consumers, and we want you to feel as safe as possible when you shop.
But this week, it all hit the fan. The FDA and the CDC, and more put out statements discussing the dangers of Delta-8 THC.
“It is important for consumers to be aware that delta-8 THC products have not been evaluated or approved by the FDA for safe use in any context,” the FDA said. “They may be marketed in ways that put the public health at risk and should especially be kept out of reach of children and pets.”
It sounds scary. Heck, it may even be enough for some of you to drop your Chill Plus Delta Force Squares right now or toss out the rest of your 10X Delta-8 Vape Cartridges. But we’re here to tell you not to worry. Government agencies love to use a chainsaw in situations that call for an Exacto knife. In other words, their hearts are in the right place, but the message could be a bit more clear.
So yes, here at Diamond CBD, our Delta-8 THC products are safe for consumption. And better still, we can prove it. Our Liquid Gold Delta-8 Vapes and Delta-8 THC Bears don’t have any dangerous chemicals in them. They’re not made from synthetics that will send you to the hospital. And most importantly, we make sure that every batch we sell is checked because we put your safety around here.
Does everyone do that? We can’t speak for any other companies, but probably not. Here we try to set the standard for transparency and safety with our products. We do that by always being upfront with you, our customers. And we promise you that there’s absolutely nothing to worry about when it comes to our Delta-8 THC.
But the FDA Said This About Delta-8 THC
Sometimes it helps to know your sources of information. For example, Delta-8 THC is a derivative of hemp. Now, in reality, there’s not enough Delta-8 in most hemp to make it viable. So what do we do? We use hemp-derived CBD to make more Delta-8. It’s not a complicated process by any means. But it is a natural process and one that leaves you with an all-natural cannabinoid at the end of the day — Delta-8 THC.
And remember the Farm Bill? Well, under that, Delta-8 THC was made legal. Unfortunately, Delta-9 THC wasn’t. So now we live in a world where businessfolk fighting to legalize one cannabinoid are also lobbying to ban another purely because of marketplace competition. And they’ve taken their case to agencies like the DEA, the FDA, and more.
So this week, some of those agencies put out a warning, but they didn’t call for Delta-8 THC to be banned.
“The rise in delta-8 THC products in marijuana and hemp marketplaces has increased the availability of psychoactive cannabis products, even in states, territories, and tribal nations where non-medical adult cannabis use is not permitted under law,” noted the CDC. “Variations in product content, manufacturing practices, labeling, and potential misunderstanding of the psychoactive properties of delta-8 THC may lead to unexpected effects among consumers.”
Now, of course, media headlines are screaming that Delta-8 is unsafe. But, if you read the warnings from the government, what they’re simply telling you, as the consumer, is that you need to be careful when you shop. Some companies are less than scrupulous, they’re saying, and you should probably avoid those. It’s actually good advice.
Other companies, like us here at Diamond CBD, do things on the up-and-up. And we do it to guarantee your safety. But how? Let’s find out.
Why Diamond CBD’s Delta-8 THC Is Perfectly Safe for Consumption
Let’s be honest; you love Delta-8 THC. You love Shrooms and Delta-8 Bites and everything else we have to offer. But we understand that when the FDA and CDC put out their messaging this week, it probably got you a bit worried. No one wants to take a cannabinoid or compound that’s declared unsafe by the government. Heck, not even us! But, as we said, our Delta-8 THC products are perfectly safe for consumption.
First and foremost, all of our Delta-8 THC comes from all-natural hemp extract. Yes, we use CBD at the foundation, but it’s all grown on non-GMO farms and extracted using supercritical CO2 processes. It’s just the first way we guarantee our products to you
Most importantly, all of our Delta-8 THC products, from vapes to edibles to capsules, and more go through rigorous third-party testing. They don’t make it to our shelves for sale until we’re satisfied that there are no chemical impurities, no synthetics, no carcinogens, and nothing else but pure, unadulterated Delta-8 THC. If it’s something we wouldn’t take ourselves, then we absolutely wouldn’t sell it to you.
Listen, we live in a changing world. People have become more accepting of cannabinoids with a buzz or anything that gets you high. But not everyone has. There’s nothing wrong with adding a little Euphoria to your life.
