As new cannabinoids and product options are introduced into the consumer market, it’s only natural for people to have questions about the safety and authenticity of the products. Learning about emerging cannabinoid combinations, including the latest in Delta 9 gummies, provides the understanding you need to evaluate if any product is right for your wellness goals.
Let’s Start with the Basics: What is Delta 9 THC?
Delta 9 THC is also known as tetrahydrocannabinol and is a naturally occurring cannabinoid in the cannabis family of plants. Cannabis plants that are developed to produce marijuana are high in Delta 9 THC, while industrial hemp plants are, by definition and under the law, very low in Delta 9 THC.
Industrial hemp plants used for the extraction of CBD contain a small amount of Delta 9. In addition, CBD can be transformed into Delta 9 THC through a specific process to provide enough hemp-derived Delta 9 for use in gummies and other products.
All Delta 9 gummies must comply with the 2018 Farm Bill, which means that they must contain less than 0.3% THC by dry weight, and the THC must be extracted from hemp plants.
The Effects of Delta 9
The effects of Delta 9 gummies will vary between individuals. Most people report a more relaxed and calm feeling, with mild to moderate euphoria and an uplift in their mood. Delta 9 gummies can also help promote a better night's sleep and may be effective at addressing pain, which also helps to contribute to a better rest with less interruptions.
Some people utilize Delta 9 gummies to relax and socialize, as the potent cannabinoid combination contained in the gummies helps people feel more at ease and puts them in a happy and social state of mind. Still others find Delta 9 to provide mental inspiration which puts them in a creative state of mind. This can be ideal for those looking for a little extra help in staying engaged with their hobbies or passion projects.
As with any CBD product, start with a low dosage of Delta 9 gummies, which may be half a gummy based on potency. Then, wait up to two hours and adjust the dosage as needed to get the desired results.
