Delta-8 Pirates Are Scamming Consumers And Legit Brands

And the feds don’t care

In June, Leafly published an article on delta-8 THC products purchased at a smoke shop in Oxnard, CA. Two of the three products turned out to be brandless packages of supposed delta-8 products, with no indication of where they came from. The featured image included a bag of copycat Flamin’ Hot Cheetos infused with delta-8 THC.

When Sam Slosburg saw the photo, he was shocked.

Slosburg is the creative director of Delta 8 Oils in Camp Verde, AZ. He recognized a small sticker slapped onto the package of supposedly delta-8 THC-infused Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. 

It was his own company’s logo. 

But the product wasn’t from Delta 8 Oils. In fact, the seed-to-sale producer doesn’t even make edibles. Nor does the company sell products outside Arizona.
