There are some people around the United States who don’t have access to marijuana products since they’re illegal in most states. Those people, who were once disgruntled with the fact, are now rejoicing for its saving grace, Delta-8 THC. This interesting cannabinoid that has made its way to the market is completely legal since it is a derivative of hemp and an isomer of CBD. However, an organization, which is known as the U.S. Hemp Roundtable (USHR), says marketing the psychoactive effects of Delta-8 is irresponsible.
The U.S. Hemp Roundtable consists of various companies and organizations that have all come together, committing to safe hemp and CBD products. They’ve become somewhat of a voice for the industry or a leading activists organization that provides both education and helps citizens fight in support of hemp and CBD.
Although Delta-8 may be derived from Hemp, the USHR doesn’t quite like marketers using hemp’s name as a guise to promote its “intoxicating value or euphoric effect”. USHR went on to making the statement that doing so is “irresponsible”. While USHR didn’t necessarily name Delta-8 specifically, two Delta-8 links in the article suggested Delta-8 is what they were referring to.
The truth is, most manufacturers, store owners, and even brands, at least ones that are reputable, are steering as far as possible from blabbing about the psychoactive effects of Delta-8. Though it is legal, there is still a gray area that exists, and many of them aren’t wanting to cross too far into the other side in fear that the government will start crashing down on the newly created market.
Our thoughts are that, even though Delta-8 is being treated just as fairly as hemp, if it gets too much attention, the market will start crumbling right before our eyes, all in the hands of the government. We are suggesting that businesses should go into ‘hush mode’, however, we are suggesting that marketing should be conducted responsibly.
