Real Blasphemy on Blast: 710Labs Gummi Warning!

Updated: Mar 17, 2023

This one's too easy. I thought I would just show up and do my journalistic duty to lay down the clear-cut, lab-tested evidence, but I got bored and decided to eat a few. The cubes of "tapioca syrup, cane sugar, pectin, citric acid, and vitamin C" taste great, but block any "nuance" of their "private library of cultivars." I thought they were plain in order to warrant the marketing of single strain flavors, but trust me, flavor is the least of our concerns.




At this point everyone is well aware that 710Labs outsources cannabis from a few Northern California farms, a problem no one seems to have issue with more than 710Labs themselves. Their repeated false claims as "single-source" inherited cult-like vibes long ago. With "Elefante" and "Created by Elefante" on their label, they appear to have a much different understanding of single-source, since I first praised them in "Avoiding Heady Halos: Single Source." But fine, work with Elefante, as I'm sure they're some cool San Francisco based, vegan Chefs, making the rare 710 Labs "Gummi" by hand for at least the last hundred-million years (I joke).


 


I was surprised by the cheap, white, hard-to-open, generic-mylar envelope, so unlike 710Labs to skimp on packaging. Especially when their competition comes in a custom-reusable tin for ten bucks less. The labeling holds no qualms about it, spewing "single source" rhetoric, while claiming their "Full Spectrum Hash Rosin" cubes are unlike other "single compound THC Distillate" edibles, so I simply asked for proof. Since many of these terms hold little value in regulation, let's deal in facts.





The C.O.A.'s (Certificate of Analysis) reveal trace elements of some pretty shocking finds, however we will save the best for last. Here's the COA reports thanks to one upside of California's prop 64 regulations: we can request state logged COA's on every product a cannabis dispensary carries. Thanks to some solid regulatory bookkeeping at my local spot, (Hey) two of the three COA's for 710labs gummies were located. Here's the Ghost Hulk gummie:


Single Cannabinoid only 710 labs gummy

For the Ghost Hulk #25 by 710Labs, there is one and only one cannabinoid present: THC. Despite the label's true claim that, "most edibles on the market use single compound THC Distillate," the tests would appear to confirm 710 Labs does too. There isn't a trace of additional cannabinoids that would be present in a solventless product.

For comparison I made sure to collect some other records in my role as weed sleuth. Since I have previously supported an edible company for their Hash Gummies, I figure I'd better put myself on blast and compare Space Gem's cannabinoid content:
