On May 14th, 2021, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) released guidance on the production/use of chemically modifed or converted industrial hemp product.
- Chemically modifying or converting any naturally occurring cannabinoids from industrial hemp is non-compliant with the statutory definition of “industrial hemp product.”
- Tetrahydrocannabinol isomers such as Delta-9, Delta-8, and Delta-10 THC are not allowed in food, dietary supplements or cosmetics.
In light of new Colorado regulatory developments regarding Delta-8, our testing methods and services will not change. We will confidentially quantify and separate cannabinoids, such as CBD, Delta-8 and Delta-9, using our validated methods, as we always have.
Now, more than ever, accurate laboratory analysis is critical to businesses that want to succeed in a regulated marketplace.
