Delta 8 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) has recently become one of the most sought-after cannabinoids (part of the cannabis plant). Like CBD, CBG, and other cannabinoids, Delta 8 THC is protected at the federal level by the 2018 Farm Bill and considered legal in many states as a biproduct of hemp. Delta 8 THC offers results similar to those provided by Delta 9 THC (marijuana), but Delta 8 THC is less potent and may not lead to many of the negative effects associated with pot use, including paranoia and other psychoactive effects. Almost from the beginning of Delta 8 THC’s popularity, one brand has been widely distributed and hotly debated. That brand, Cake, may be easy to find, but how does it compare to other Delta 8 THC options on the market, including the Goodekind brand? In this blog, we’re going to take a close look at some concerning red flags associated with Cake and how Goodekind Delta 8 THC products compare.
What Is Cake? Is Cake Brand Delta 8 Good?
Cake is a brand name for Delta 8 THC products that are widely available in smoke shops, convenience stores, online retailers, and other cannabis retail stores. While this brand is pervasive within the market, it’s hard to say what the origins of these products are as they are purchased wholesale and sold entirely by third party providers.
Why Should I Be Worried About Cake Delta 8 THC Products?
Cake is one of the most pervasive brands of Delta 8 THC products. It seems like you find these vapes, gummies, and other products just about everywhere, but there are some red flags that customers need to be aware of before purchasing these products, including:
- No website? – it’s 2021, so not having a website is always a red flag. Cake doesn’t have an online presence, and the retailers that sell these products don’t buy directly from Cake or a specific manufacturer. Instead, these products are sold in large batches from secondary providers. This means even the companies who are selling Cake products likely don’t know where, when, or how these products were manufactured (yikes!).
- No data – reputable suppliers of Delta 8 THC products invest in and make third party lab testing results available, but Cake doesn’t offer access to the results of any sort of lab testing of its products. That means it’s hard to tell what’s in your Delta 8 THC products from Cake.
- No consistency – Cake products are available to purchase wholesale from numerous online bulk merchandising sources that don’t list a clear manufacturer or product manufacture date. That is questionable business practice, but even more worrisome is the fact that anyone can buy empty Cake cartridges and packaging. In short, who knows what you’re going to get?
- Stolen branding – finally, Cake seems to have adapted its branding from Cookies, which is a reputable retailer. By creating products that look similar, Cake may be seeking to trick customers into buying their brand believing they’re purchasing a reputable product.
