Evolab Introduces First Delta 8 THC Product in Colorado
Award Winning Premium CO2 Distillate Now Available with Rare Cannabinoid
DENVER, July 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Evolab, a CBx Enterprises brand, today unveiled a special formulation of its oil rich in Delta 8 THC, available exclusively at LivWell Enlightened Health locations across Colorado beginning this week.
Similar to the better known Delta 9 THC, Delta 8 THC is a naturally occurring compound found in most cannabis plants. However, Delta 8 THC typically only appears in very low levels. In order to increase availability of this fascinating cannabinoid, the Evolab team, headed by Chief Scientist Noel Palmer, Ph.D., created a unique distillation process using just heat and filtration to convert regular Delta 9 THC into Delta 8 THC.
"While CBD and THC are very well known, there are so many other components with so many potential benefits in the cannabis plant," explained Palmer. "Understanding that many of these compounds have vast potential medical and recreational opportunities drives us to continue to find new ways to unlock as many of these rare cannabinoids as possible."
"After crafting a number of products with CBN and THCA, then introducing CBG to Colorado, the addition of Delta 8 technology to our cannabinoid portfolio cements CBx Enterprises as the unrivaled leader in cannabinoid production," said Nicole Smith, CEO, CBx Enterprises. "Unlike some of the non-psychotropic cannabinoids that we've released in CBx Sciences products designed for therapeutic purposes, Delta 8 is without question 'psychotropic' - and therefore we felt that it would be a great fit with our recreationally oriented Evolab product line. Offering Delta 8 in this highly pure form will allow us to gather consumer feedback and help shape future research around this unique cannabinoid."
Evolab Delta 8 products are exclusively available at LivWell locations in Colorado upon launch. Additional locations will be announced in coming months.
