What is Delta 8?
For the uninitiated, Delta 8 is a sort of alternative to THC products that has grown in popularity among people in states where marijuana has yet to be legalized.
Offering users a high with intoxicating psychoactive effects quite similar to marijuana, though a bit milder, Delta 8 has caught the attention of many people—including cannabis farmers and manufacturers such as ourselves, who are proud to offer a Delta 8 tincture.
Keeping It Local
One of the biggest questions facing Delta 8 users, from first-time buyers to seasoned pros, is whether they should spring for online or local options when shopping for THC—and, of course, you can order online from local businesses, so keep this in mind throughout our discussion of online versus local Delta 8 shopping.
Among the biggest issues surrounding Delta 8 is that there are many, many vendors offering it, yet not all of them sell products that are made by experienced or responsible manufacturers, which is what has doubtless inspired the wave of bad reactions and safety warnings surrounding this product.
Legitimate Local Businesses Sell Safe, Regulated Products
This is the first big reason for keeping it local, which is that a CBD shop that must abide by federal regulations and safety standards is guaranteed to sell a safe Delta 8 product, while random online vendors could easily sell you a delta 8 product that is dangerous, or just low-quality.
However, just because you are buying local does not mean you are buying a safe product, as Delta 8 is sold at a number of places. A Delta 8 product that you buy from the gas station near your apartment is less likely to be quality and safe than something bought from a more trustworthy online vendor such as an out-of-state dispensary.
Word of Mouth Advice
A way to find out if an online or local vendor is trustworthy is to check out reviews for the vendor. Or, visit the store itself and talk to the workers, or even other customers, to find out if the Delta 8 product is a right fit for you.
Generally, people tend to be more open and truthful in-person than online, and so you will probably get more detailed and honest insights into a store’s products by visiting the store yourself.
Another aspect of the local buying experience that ought to push you over the edge is that many local businesses allow customers to sample their products (in small, reasonable doses, of course), which can give you an idea of the quality and effects of the Delta 8 they sell.
As mentioned before, talking with an in-store representative can be extremely helpful in finding the guidance you need on your Delta 8 journey. Specific questions relating to recommended dosage based on your personal needs, as well as other expert info, is more reliably found in-person than online.
