What is the chemical structure of Delta-8?
It’s important to first understand the molecular differences between CBD and THC if you want to understand Delta-8. The biggest difference between the two cannabinoids is how hydrogen bonds with oxygen in CBD, but is separated into two different molecules in THC.
In Delta-8, the only chemically distinct feature between it and Delta-9 THC is the double bond of the molecule switches sides. Otherwise, the two cannabinoids are almost identical on a structural level.
Using a chromatogram, either CBD or delta-9 THC can be converted into Delta-8 THC.
How is Delta-8 THC made?
- Dissolve CBD in non-polar organic solvent
- Add acid (Lewis or Bronstead)
- Stir 100oC for 1-18 hrs
- Dry or neutralize with Sodium Bicarbonate
- Extract with a non-polar volatile solvent
What equipment is required to make Delta-8 THC Amber?
- Stirred reactor with heater and condenser
- Wiped Film Evaporator
- Preparative Chromatography
- HPLC for analytical
Additionally, to produce Delta-8 Amber at the production scale, a dedicated lab is required. All of our distillates are produced at a state-certified lab. All distillates are then tested by an independent 3rd party laboratory for purity, residual solvents, pesticides, and heavy metals.

Clear vs Amber Distillate:
Color is a highly misunderstood concept about Delta-8 distillates. The color of the distillate is a result of the type of processes used in extraction. Both clear and amber distillates have the same level of quality and purity. The color is a matter of preference more than anything and may be more suitable for different types of finished products.
