VCU lab testing delta-8 products finds misleading labeling, lack of safety standards

January 31, 2022

Dr. Michelle Peace, Associate Professor in the VCU Department of Forensic Science, and Amanda Ferreira, a scientific officer in the chemistry department of a forensic science lab in Trinidad and Tobago and a Hubert H. Humphrey Fellow, have been researching ways for drug testing labs to better identify delta-8 and other cannabis analogs. The Peace lab testing delta-8 products has found misleading labeling and lack of safety standards. “At the end of the day, it’s a consumer safety issue. For the most part, people are not aware of what they’re buying and cannot make informed decisions about what they consume.”
