So let's face it - Delta-8 is DOPE AF! It's so dope that it's basically the "it" kid on the block. And who can blame it? Taking Delta-8 is basically like the better version of your traditional Delta-9 in the sense that it can still slap but you're enjoying the high worry-free. In today's guide, we're going to be looking at what to consider when choosing your favorite Delta-8 brand. And while you likely already have a favorite brand, we hope you truly consider what to look for if and when you give another brand a shot! Let's jump in.
Unsure About What Delta-8 Is?
Make sure you take a look through our guide, What Is Delta-8? As a short summary, Delta-8 THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is an analogue of the traditional Delta-9 THC. Existing as a minor cannabinoid, Delta-8 is naturally derived from both cannabis and hemp plants in very trace quantities. By extracting the cannabinoid from CBD, brands all over the country are able to commercially produce large quantities of it for the general public.
Upon consuming your perfect dose of Delta-8, the high is similar to a traditional cannabis one, but without the attached anxiety and paranoia that go along with it. The lack of these two side effects keep you level-headed and in-control; making these the future of cannabis.
What Should You Look For in a Brand?
As we mentioned, we want to highlight all the key things to consider while choosing your preferred Delta-8 brand. Let's dive nto the most important considerations to keep in mind as you shop.
1. Third-Party Lab Testing
The most important factor to look into before making a purchase is to guarantee the brand in question is as transparent about their products as possible. The most sure-fire way to guarantee that is the company's inclusion of batch-tested lab reports done by an accredited, third-party laboratory.
Any reputable Delta-8 brand will have some sort of lab test available directly on their site. These products should be batch-tested to ensure every single product whether it was manufactured last month, last week, or even today, was thoroughly screened for everything that should be included and nothing that should not.
A typical lab test should include, at the very least, a cannabinoid potency test, which measures the amount of Delta-8 THC, and the potency of Delta-9 THC. To maintain the product's legality, the Delta-9 THC must not exceed 0.3% on a dry-weight basis.
In addition to the two cannabinoids, CBD, CBN, CBG, terpenes, pesticides, residual solvents, mycotoxins, and heavy metals should also produce a reporting to complete the Full Panel Test.

2. The Brand's Overall Reputation & Reviews
Next, the reputation of your Delta-8 brand certainly matters. What were the experiences of others trying the products? What does the community say about the company? How does their customer service department measure up against others?
Furthermore, look at the reviews both on and off their website. Are reviews allowed on their website? What are the ratings currently like? Take some time to do some careful research on what the reviews and reputation of the company is like.
We're proud of our glowing reviews across our platform, because they're authentic from genuine users. Each of our Delta-8 Vape Cartridges and Gummies have their own separate sections for reviews. Since they provide different experiences from one another, we want our users to be able to provide their own experiences as they progress through our product lines.
3. Policies & Product Variety
Another factor to consider is the variety of a company's products and their policies surrounding overall customer satisfaction. Does the company in question offer enough products for your ever-changing desires? Is the offering a little large to keep up with? Or is it just right? We aim to provide a variety of flavors for different tastes, but don't go overboard with the selection. At the end of the day, we care more about helping people discover all there is to benefit from Delta-8, not necessarily to bombard you with sub-par products.
When it comes to policies, does your brand have a return policy? What if you receive your product damaged - can they exchange it for another product or flat-out refund you? These are very important questions to ask both yourself and the company.
4. Learn Your Delta-8 Brand
Always get to know your brand before you buy a product from them. How often do they update their blog? What information do they make transparent to their customers?
Try to keep all of these considerations in the forefront of your thoughts when shopping for your Delta-8 products. Since the industry is this new, it never hurts to do more research!
