The FDA has issued a new warning against the consumption of Delta-8 THC. In case you are wondering what Delta-8 THC is, it is a cannabinoid of the cannabis plant. More specifically, it is extracted from the Industrial Hemp plant.
A combination of factors has led the FDA to provide consumers with this information. These factors include:
An uptick in adverse event reports to the FDA and the nation’s poison control centers.
Marketing, including online marketing of products, that is appealing to children.
Concerns regarding contamination due to methods of manufacturing that may in some cases be used to produce marketed delta-8 THC products.
Belle Terre Law Firm urges consumers of Delta-8 THC to purchase their products from reputable companies that do NOT use dangerous solvents to extract Delta-8 THC from Industrial Hemp. Also, make sure that if you purchase consumable products that they are in child-proof containers.
