With Arizona dispensaries already licensed and selling recreational marijuana, the focus of the cannabis industry in the Grand Canyon State has turned to dealing with the potential shortages due to unprecedented recreational demand. But one processor remains committed to medical cannabis patients and unlike some other Arizona producers, they and their dispensary partners are not worried about supply issues.
Delta 8 Oils is a family-run processor based in Camp Verde, Arizona. They are currently producing multiple vaporizers and tinctures in varying ratios of THC and CBD featuring the increasingly popular delta-8 THC.
Delta-8 THC is nearly identical to the more common delta-9 THC, the THC in marijuana that gives it its psychoactive properties. But that tiny molecular difference allows Delta 8 Oils to provide a full-spectrum cannabis experience without the disruptive head-high. Users describe it as more of a body high. Delta 8 Oils calls it: Peace of Body. Presence of Mind.
“Cannabis treatments can be life-changing for people who would otherwise suffer or turn to addictive opioids and side-effect laden drugs,” said Danny Slosburg, the family patriarch and Delta 8 Oils founder. “We want to make sure patients can find relief without fear of their dispensaries running out.”
Delta-8 THC has been growing in popularity in recent years in part due to what early research indicates could be superior medical benefits compared to CBD and traditional marijuana therapies, such as:
• Relief of chemo side effects (some lab studies even showed an actual reduction of cancer cells)
• Improving clarity, which is especially beneficial for use with dementia and Alzheimer’s patients
• Easing physical discomfort without the psychoactive effects prevalent in marijuana
• Lessening the effects of seizures
Delta 8 Oils is uniquely positioned to meet Arizona’s unprecedented demand. Unlike marijuana extractors of delta-8 THC, several of whom have discontinued production to focus on traditional delta-9 THC products, Delta 8 Oils produces its products from 99.99% pure CBD isolate through an all-natural, patent-pending process. Their CBD is produced from premium American-grown hemp that is hand-selected from trusted growers. Not only are they able to meet any demand for consumer products, they can also supply bulk oils to other Arizona producers struggling to find THC for their cannabis products.
“We have exactly the right products, in exactly the right place, at exactly the right time,” said Slosburg. “We just want to help people.”
