​Water Clear or Rose Colored D-8 Distillate

Posted by Julie Helmer, COO, Fresh Bros on Sep 17th 2020

Fresh Bros provides compliant hemp derived D-8 Distillate.  Our D-8 Distillate is the perect combination of a pure clear oil with natural cannabinoids that give it a natural rose tint.  We don't use any bleaching agents to enhance the oil to an ultra water clear color for the protection of our consumers. 

A lot of people are wondering what the difference is between the two so we thought this blog might be helpful. 

Delta-8 Distillate is made a couple of different ways. Because Delta-8 THC is not present in sufficient concentrations in most hemp cultivars to make its extraction economical, it is produced through a chemical reaction by a catalyst that converts hemp-derived CBD Isolate into Delta-8 THC.

The color variations relate to the pH level and different acid activated media used as bleaching agents used to remove the color from the distillate. Bleaching agents can be in acid form or even clay. This causes the pH level to be acidic, which makes the product unstable. The lack of any color in Delta-8 distillate is popular and is desired in the industry. However, if you are going to smoke Delta-8 distillate in a vape cart, keep in mind if bleaching acids were used, there may be some still present, which I, personally wouldn’t want to inhale.

Non-bleached Delta-8 distillate will be slightly pink or rose colored, which is the natural color state of the cannabinoid. With the absence of the acid activated media, the difference in the pH level will keep the product stable and will not leave synthetic biproducts that could be harmful if inhaled.

We source safe and compliant products to our customers more importantly we want to help educate them about what they are buying. There is far too much false information on the internet regarding Delta-8 THC.
