How to know if your Delta 8 product has expired No effects: If the product seems ineffective, it has definitely expired. Discoloration: One of the side effects of oxidation is discoloration. It smells bad: when the THC in Delta 8 degrades, so does the smell. A quick way to tell if your Delta-8 has gone sour is with its smell.
As the THC content breaks down inside, it may start to smell, well, strange. If it smells bad, it probably is. The production processes of marijuana and of the hemp-derived Delta-9 THC are similar, since both involve the extraction and refinement of the desired cannabinoid. The main difference lies in the plant material of origin and the THC concentrations present.
Delta-9 THC derived from marijuana is normally obtained from cannabis varieties with high THC content, while Delta-9 THC derived from hemp is extracted from industrial hemp plants with THC concentrations lower than 0.3%. The lower concentration of THC in hemp requires a more extensive refinement process to isolate and concentrate the desired cannabinoid. CBD is a cannabinoid that doesn't get you high and has slightly relaxing effects, while Delta 8 is basically the same as “normal” THC. Most of the time, the D8 in Delta 8 pre-rolls is made with another cannabinoid and then sprayed on hemp with CBD or CBG.
