Very interesting response. Thank you.

Could the same be said for other d9 concentrates on the black market? Would you say that delta 8 is safer than those?

It seems these products are used mostly in grey states and states where medical/recreational hasn’t taken off yet.

I've heard that delta 8 will still make your fail a pee test, so to me it would be safer to smoke real weed because like OP said delta 8 is so hard to test.

Not everyone has they luxury though, delta 8 is legal in my state, delta 9 is not
