Delta Effex’s Delta-8 Shots Pack An Impressive Punch!
One of the cannabinoids gaining immense popularity among hemp aficionados is Delta-8 THC. The reason is quite understandable.
Marijuana fans can now get the same buzz—albeit a slightly weaker one—without having to bother about the legal repercussions and the possibility of getting completely zonked.
Being an isomer of Delta-9 THC — the compound that makes you hallucinate — Delta-8 works in, pretty much, the same way. But, due to a slight tweak in its chemical structure, Delta-8 does not cause the same intensity of high as Delta-9 does. That is why most consumers do not experience paranoia, psychosis, or anxiety – the usual side effects of marijuana use. As opposed to D-9, Delta-8 THC does seem to have certain benefits, such as a calm and relaxed feeling, a more focused and attentive mind, and sound sleep.
Now, enterprises, both big and small, are always on the lookout for potential opportunities to expand their business. That’s okay as long as the products are genuine and effective. But the cannabinoid industry is still quite unregulated – which is why consumers need to be alert and aware of the goings-on of the market before they buy anything.
However, one of the few brands you can trust without a doubt is Delta Effex. And, people are always keen to learn of its new releases. This is why, today, we’ve brought to you their latest additions to its massive stable of awesome Delta-8 and Delta-10 products.
Recently, the company released a couple of Delta-8 concentrate products and an edible – the Fruit Punch Premium Delta-8 THC Shot.
Sounds interesting. Doesn’t it?
About Delta Effex
Delta Effex has been in the market for a while. Its parent company, Savage Enterprises, has quite an interesting history. The founders started off with an e-cigarette retail store in Orange, California.
From there, it has been a journey of trial and error for the brand – one of which resulted in Delta Effex as we know it.
Now, if a brand has survived in the cut-throat cannabis market, it must have done a lot of things right. So, let’s find out what makes this brand special.
Sourcing & Extraction/Manufacturing
Unfortunately, the Delta Effex website doesn’t mention its source of hemp, extraction method, or manufacturing practices. It only mentions that the company sources the best Delta-8 distillates and infuses them with the cleanest of hemp-extracted terpenes.
However, the brand does clarify that it extracts everything from hemp (and not marijuana, which would make it illegal) and that the Delta-8 is derived from cannabidiol (CBD). This is a common practice because deriving the Delta-8 compound directly from the hemp plant is a tall task and not sustainable.
All of Delta Effex Delta-8 THC products are tested and certified by a third-party lab. The products contain less than 0.3% Delta-9, as mandated by federal law. However, the brand does not claim to supply non-GMO, organic, or vegan products. The new product, too, contains artificial flavors and some chemical preservatives, such as sodium benzoate and butylated hydroxyanisole.
Third-Party Lab Testing
Delta Effex products are tested twice — once in their raw form and, later, after being manufactured.
Marin Analytics conducts the tests for the new Delta-8 shot.
However, the test reports are only for the percentage of total cannabinoids in the product. Unlike the reports posted by many other reputable brands, the brand doesn’t provide test results for the presence of heavy metals, pesticides, and other toxic chemicals.
Despite the shortcomings, Delta Effex has made quite a name for itself. Its products are quite popular among Delta-8 consumers. Besides, it has been featured in several e-mags, such as High Times, Dope Magazine, Vapor Vanity, Merry Jane, Leafly, Nature & Bloom, Herb, PotGuide.com, and, of course, Ministry of Hemp. The brand is known for its wide variety of products, which are safe and effective.
Marketing Practices and Company Policies
The Delta Effex website is fairly simple and easy to navigate. But there is little information about the company’s background, its hemp source, the extraction process, and manufacturing practices — factors that should tell you a lot about the makers.
However, the products are listed comprehensively and the site contains the basics about each of them, such as the ingredients and lab test reports.
The site hosts a blog to guide you through your cannabis experience. The Learning Centre page is also an excellent source of information about Delta-8 and Delta-10 – the only cannabinoids available in its offering.
Its usual order processing time is 1–3 business days. You can also opt to cancel unshipped orders for a full refund. Delta Effex ships its products to all US states, barring 11, where all THC products are considered illegal.
Orders are shipped by USPS for a flat charge of $3.89 for all domestic orders. The company makes it clear that it’s not responsible for any lost packages or delayed deliveries. You must take up such matters directly with the USPS. The company also doesn’t entertain requests for exchanges, returns, or refunds. A replacement will only be sent for damaged, missing, or wrong products.
Delta Effex also has a rewards program for monthly subscribers. You can earn points and redeem them to earn attractive rewards.
Delta Effex Fruit Punch Delta-8 Shot
The Fruit Punch Premium Delta-8 THC Shot is an edible D-8 product. The brand calls it the perfect on-the-go product. It comes in a small 1 fl. oz. bottle (30 ml).
The suggested dosage is half a bottle for first-time users. You can increase your doses according to your tolerance level. The product promises to give you a strong body high and cerebral focus.

The product is a new launch, so there aren’t any customer reviews yet. However, going by the popularity of Delta Effex products, you can expect the shot to join the bandwagon of sought-after products within a few days. Delta Effex products are known to be powerful. Customers of other products have praised those for their taste, flavor, and effectiveness. So, we don’t expect another horse from the same stable to disappoint us.
The MOH Experience
We were among the first customers to try this shot. And, true to the company’s claim, it does pack a punch. Within an hour, we felt more focused and clear-headed. The best part was the fruity flavor. We would highly recommend it to anyone with a knack for Delta-8 products.

Buying Guide For Beginners
Delta-8 THC is a relatively new cannabinoid on the market and it’s understandable if you are still in two minds about trying it. It doesn’t help that 12 US states still consider it illegal even though the federal laws make it clear that Delta-8 products are legal as long as the compound is derived from hemp and contains less than 0.3% of Delta-9 THC. Anyhow, if you intend to try Delta-8 anytime soon, we have chalked up this guide that will help you make a prudent decision.
Read up about Delta-8 THC
Even before you choose the brand or any product, know what you are about to consume. Delta-8 is a psychoactive compound, just like Delta-9. The effects are milder but Delta-8 can also get you stoned if you consume too much of it. So, be careful about the dose and don’t go for a very strong product immediately. Also, smokes and vapes take effect very quickly. So, do not take too many puffs and long drags. Go slow and be responsible.
Buy from a reliable company
The cannabinoid market is largely unregulated and, hence, full of dubious sellers and fake products. Now, you have no way to know whether a company is selling you genuine products even if it produces lab reports. Even those might be fake, for all you know. So, it’s best to buy from reliable and reputable brands. Always go through customer feedback on the brand site as well as third-party platforms. You’ll get a fair idea about the brand and the product.
Source of hemp, extraction, and manufacturing
Always buy from companies that make their source of hemp clear. The hemp should ideally be grown in the US or EU, where strict regulations are followed. The source of the extract should be hemp and not marijuana. Give a brand brownie points for mentioning manufacturing practices (such as cGMP-certified) and for organic, non-GMO, and vegan products.
Third-party lab tests
This is of utmost importance. Third-party labs are expected to give an honest and unbiased opinion on a product and its ingredients. Choose only the brands that display the results readily on the site or at least provide these on request. Best are the brands that get their products tested for not only the cannabinoid profile but also heavy metals, pesticides, and toxins.
Choose brands that have friendly customer policies and an active customer service team that is easily reachable. If you face any problem with your order or delivery, you wouldn’t want to get stuck.
