What is Delta 8 Distillate?

What Is a Distillate?
In order to extract Delta 8 from the hemp plant and concentrate it enough to use it in Delta 8 products, it must be put through a distillation process. Distillation uses evaporation and condensation to separate the Delta 8 from the various other chemical compounds found in the hemp plant.
Separation occurs when these unwanted compounds are heated to their boiling points and evaporated out of the liquid containing the Delta 8 THC. The resulting product is a highly pure and potent form of Delta 8 that is ready to be used in various products.
