Delta's Defense: The Extraction Process

Delta Extraction says, "Hold up!" They claim their distillate wasn't made with harsh chemicals but went through a similar process used in the regulated marijuana market. J.J. Coombs, owner of Arvida Labs, explained how they make THC-A from hemp, which only gets you high when heated.

Hemp vs. Marijuana - What's the Difference?

Now, don't get confused between hemp and marijuana. Hemp doesn't naturally have much THC-A, so it takes quite a bit of hemp to make THC-A isolate. But it's not just any hemp; it's hemp bred to have higher THC-A levels. It's like the cool, chill cousin of marijuana.

  • Moreover, don't mistake hemp for marijuana.
  • In essence, hemp doesn't have much THC-A naturally.
  • Consequently, it takes a substantial amount of hemp to produce THC-A isolate, which is like the milder sibling of delta-9 THC.

The Pesticide Question

One more thing to ponder - could the hemp come from outside the U.S.? That's a concern because foreign pesticides might be in the mix, and Missouri labs don't test for those. Coombs clarified that the hemp came from farmers in , Tennessee, and Kentucky using federally-approved strains.

  • Undoubtedly, the origin of the hemp raises questions.
  • Nevertheless, Coombs said Arvida purchased the hemp from farmers in Texas, Tennessee, and Kentucky who've learned to breed the plants to have higher concentrations of THC-A, using federally-approved strains.
  • Despite the concerns, any of the pesticides used in those would have shown up on a lab test as being safe, Coombs said.

Lab Insights: No Smoking Gun

Green Precision Analytics, one of the labs that tested Delta's distillate, said there was no trace of THC from a chemical conversion process. Usually, they can spot the difference, but not this time. Coombs explains that it's all about the extraction process, which is the same for marijuana and hemp.

  • Although, the lab results were surprising.
  • Nonetheless, Coombs clarified that marijuana companies who purchased Delta's distillate should not feel "duped" because the same extraction process used to get delta-9 THC from marijuana was used to get THC-A from hemp.
  • For example, eating raw marijuana flower won't produce a high because there's only a small amount of delta-9 THC but a lot of THC-A.

Wrapping It Up - No Surprises Here

So, what's the verdict? If you bought Delta's distillate, don't feel duped. The process to get THC-A from hemp is essentially the same as getting delta-9 THC from marijuana. Hemp is like marijuana's laid-back cousin, minus the delta-9 THC.

  • In conclusion, the key takeaway here is that the "Marijuana Recall Missouri" has thrown the cannabis scene into a whirlwind of confusion.
  • Therefore, it's crucial for both regulators and businesses to tread carefully and ensure the safety of cannabis products for consumers.
  • All in all, we'll be keeping a close eye on the developments in this intriguing saga. Stay tuned!
