What is Delta 9 THC? The Rise of the Popular Cannabinoid and Why You Should Try It

Cannabis has engulfed the globe in popularity since its legalization, spurning hundreds of potent cannabinoid products to be born.  Through careful laboratory testing, hemp and its main psychoactive ingredient, Delta 9 THC, was harvested and sold at a fire-fast rate.  Inspired, our friends at cbdMD and The Hemp Pharmacist engineered full-spectrum Delta 9 gummies, joining a full arsenal of medical-grade hemp solutions.

WHAT IS DELTA 9 THC?

Delta 9 THC (or just “THC”) is the top-known cannabinoid and the root of that beloved euphoric “high” we feel from cannabis ingestion, inhalation, or topical absorption.  It’s the most commonly found compound in both marijuana and hemp plants, extracted through heat.

IS DELTA 9 THC SAFE?

When purchased from a reputable medical professional, yes!  With their FDA-registered GMP facilities and third-party testing, you can rely on cbdMD’s products to shoot above and beyond manufacturing standards.  Since our scientists extract Delta 9 THC to create a much more concentrated formula, it is not organically found in the wild.  However, Delta 9 is a natural spawn of the hemp plant, whether made in one of our ISO-certified labs or not.  Following the proper dosage, our cbdMD gummies can work wonders for the mind and body.

BEFORE DOSING, HERE ARE A COUPLE OF FACTORS TO KEEP IN MIND:

AGE 

Delta 9 THC is an age-restricted product, and verification is required at the sale.  It is unsafe for children and people under 21 due to its psychoactive properties.  Dose THC maturely and responsibly.

AMOUNT TAKEN  

You may be susceptible to an adverse reaction if you have a known or unknown medical condition.  Start with a small amount to measure your body’s response.  Like any other medication, it’s always better to take too little. 

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

After taking one of our Delta 9 THC gummies, you will want to set the mood.  If you’re exercising strenuously, you may prevent yourself from feeling its body-calming effects.

MEDICATIONS

THC and other cannabinoids or terpenes can interact with some prescriptions, so contact your doctor if you’re unsure Delta 9 is suitable for you. 

DRUG TESTING

Do you have a job that cracks down on drug tests?  Even if you’re in a state with loose hemp laws as of 2022, your employer still has the control to prohibit THC usage.  Delta 9 will show up on a drug test.

IS DELTA 9 THC LEGAL?

In conjunction with federal mandates, all cbdMD products are formulated from hemp, not marijuana.  To understand the legality of cannabis, let’s dive into the 2018 Farm Bill.

THE 2018 FARM BILL

Until 2018, the cannabis plant was classified as a Schedule I drug under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), condemning it to be on par with the most dangerous drugs in the world (i.e., the U.S. Opioid Epidemic, crack cocaine, heroin, etc.).  The rejection of cannabis was thanks to Richard Nixon’s War on Drugs in the 1970s, which targeted the recreational and medical use of drugs.  After decades of research and dissolution of ignorance, the 2018 Farm Bill passed, making cannabis and its cannabinoid counterparts federally legal today…to a threshold.

The bill proposed that for a cannabis product to be considered federally legal, it must contain less than 0.3% D9 THC by dry weight volume.  After the 2018 Farm Bill opened the door for hemp industrialization, the cannabis community streamlined endless cannabis products for every category possible.  As a result, cannabinoids such as Delta 8 THC, Delta 10 THC, and HHC were created.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Now, I’m sure you’re wondering what the buzz around Delta 9 THC is all about.  We’re here to confirm that the fierce cannabinoid has become a medical utility for many reasons.

As determined by 2022 research, Delta 9 can treat:

  • anxiety
  • multiple sclerosis (M.S.)
  • alcohol use disorder
  • nausea
  • insomnia
  • glaucoma
  • muscle spasticity
  • low appetite
  • obstructive sleep apnea
  • chronic pain
  • mood regulation

Even more surprisingly, there are unofficial reports of Delta 9 THC being used to treat severe complications like cancer (chemotherapy nausea) and anorexia nervosa.  THC works by binding nerves and specific brain sites, and the brain is still an enigma in the medical industry.

WILL I GET HIGH?

To be blunt, absolutely— but that varies from person to person.  It’s important to note that the “high” you experience from delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol is more of a “body high” than a “mind high” (no hallucinations). 

Sensations include intense relaxation, enhanced visual and auditory senses, slight dizziness, euphoria, and munchies.  Potential side effects are dry eyes/mouth, increased heart rate, slower reaction times, coordination problems, or even vomiting with high doses; all are normal.

HOW MUCH SHOULD I TAKE?

When in doubt, follow the quarter rule: eat 1/4th of a 10 mg gummy, and wait a few hours to see if it kicks in.  You can always up the intake from there.  Metabolism is a critical factor that comes into play here, so it’s imperative to explore your THC tolerance for a fulfilling experience.  

DELTA 8 VS DELTA 9

If you’ve heard of Delta 9 THC, you probably know its weaker cousin, Delta 8.  The difference between the two stems from their chemical compounds, where Delta 8 has a double carbon bond on the eighth chain and delta 9 on the ninth.  Both will get you “high,” but Delta 8 THC gummies have far less potency obtained from the natural hemp plant.

DELTA 9 THC TAKEAWAYS

Undoubtedly, Delta 9 THC is the jackpot when it comes to all of the positive qualities of cannabis.  cbdMD knows this, dawning upon us its powerful full-spectrum blend drawn from natural cannabis Sativa.  It’s packed with Delta 9 THC, CBD ingredients, and whole plant extracts sized down to a delicious gummy in cherry and blue razz flavors.
