Let’s go over the kick-in times of Delta 9 THC gummies in further detail.
What Are Delta 9 Gummies?
Delta 9 gummies are cannabis products that contain low doses of Delta 9 THC. To create them, we extract Delta 9 from the cannabis plant and infuse it into soft, chewy candies. Gummies are the most effective way to reap the benefits of microdosing THC.
Still not sure why microdosing Delta 9 THC is the best?
Longer-lasting effects: our body processes ingested Delta 9 differently than when smoking, resulting in effects that last much longer than other consumption methods.
Unlike smoking, which is bad news for your lungs, gummies provide a safer, healthier option without harming your respiratory system.
Delta 9 gummies are simple and discreet, which makes them a practical solution for microdosing on the go.
Our Delta 9 gummies do not contain artificial additives or preservatives. We use rigorous third-party lab testing to assure the safety and efficacy of all our Delta 9 products. Case in point: our phenomenal Energy gummies. Pure unadulterated blood orange flavor mixed with top-notch cannabis extracts for a mild euphoric kick. It doesn’t get better than this.
The onset time of Delta 9 THC gummies can depend on:
Your tolerance level for cannabis
Whether you’ve eaten beforehand
Because the effects of Delta 9 THC vary from person to person, don’t forget to start with a low dose and be patient. Gummies provide a considerably slower but more sustained cannabis experience compared to other methods of consumption.
We agree that smoking is the quickest way to feel the effects of cannabis, but it is also the unhealthiest and even dangerous. Why not swap those nasty cigarettes and vapes and choose a healthy and more dependable way to microdose?
Cancer patients often microdose Delta 9 to suppress feelings of nausea and vomiting and alleviate other symptoms. Delta 9 may help treat prostate cancer and other types of carcinoma due to its significant anti-cancer properties. Medical cannabis may even prevent cancer cells from proliferating and spreading to other cells.
Typically, it is the combination of Delta 9 THC and CBD that has the best results for our health. Our Euphoria gummies contain 10 mg of THC and CBD each. That means that these fruit-filled vegan edibles guarantee a mildly euphoric experience balanced by the soothing influence of CBD.
Speaking of Delta 9 and CBD, let’s see how exactly they work to influence our endocannabinoid system.
THC and CBD in the Endocannabinoid System
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a complex network of signals and receptors that help regulate important functions and processes in the body—mood, sleep, appetite, and memory. It is composed of cannabinoid receptors and signals. CB1 receptors are mostly found in the brain, while CB2 receptors are mostly found in the tissues that make up our immune system.
The CB1 cannabinoid receptors outnumber other types of receptors in the brain. One of their primary functions is to control neurotransmitters and regulate bodily functions like hunger, temperature, and alertness. Our bodies make natural cannabinoids that have the same structure as the molecules in phytocannabinoids, which are cannabinoids from the cannabis plant. These cannabinoids stimulate CB1 receptors.
The combination of THC and CBD, two major phytocannabinoids, seems to produce the best results. The proposed synergistic interaction of THC and CBD is known as the entourage effect.
CBD seems to have an indirect impact on the ECS. It doesn't bind to the cannabinoid receptors in our brain directly. Instead, CBD antagonizes or down-modulates CB1 and CB2 receptors in the presence of THC.
CBD displays unexpectedly high potency as an antagonist of CB1/CB2 receptor agonists in CB1- and CB2-expressing cells or tissues, the manner with which it interacts with CB2 receptors providing a possible explanation for its ability to inhibit evoked immune cell migration. (Pertwee, et. al.)
When CBD and THC are taken together, CBD regulates THC’s interactions with cannabinoid receptors. CBD also improves the safety and tolerability of Delta 9 THC by reducing the likelihood of psychoactive effects it may have on our brain.
You won’t be able to feel the entourage effect, but after regular use, you may start to notice the benefits of cannabinoids working together: improved sleep, decreased anxiety, and an overall better mood.
Broad spectrum CBD contains CBD, CBG, CBN, and other minor cannabinoids, but no Delta 9 THC. Our Anytime broad spectrum gummies are packed with 10 mg of custom-formulated broad spectrum hemp extract for the ultimate THC-free experience.
Similarly, our collection of CBN gummies does not contain any THC or THC derivatives. These vegan gummies are the perfect addition to your nighttime routine due to the sleep-promoting properties of CBD and CBN.
There is no reason why you shouldn’t microdose Delta 9 on a daily basis. People who use medical cannabis every day say it's a safe and effective way to reduce stress, relieve pain, improve sleep, and reap other benefits. In fact, research seems to support the idea behind the benefits of regular microdosing.
In one study, 172 participants were given low doses of THC (7.5 mg a day) for seven months. More than half of the participants experienced changes in pain intensity, improvements in their overall quality of life, and even relief from symptoms of anxiety.
The present survey demonstrates its ameliorating potential for the treatment of chronic pain in central neuropathy and fibromyalgia. A supplemental delta 9-THC treatment as part of a broader pain management plan therefore may represent a promising coanalgesic therapeutic option. (Weber, et. al.)
The trick is to identify the optimal dose, ratio, and concentration for you. We always advise starting low and gradually increasing the dosage. To achieve the best outcomes from the product you're microdosing, be patient and consistent.
Before including any new product into your daily microdosing regimen, it’s always a good idea to get familiar with how each cannabis product works.
However, the legality of hemp-derived Delta 9 products is determined by each state individually. For example, our D8 gummies are federally legal, but a number of US states still ban Delta 8 THC outright.
You can buy gummies at local dispensaries across the country or you can purchase them online. Wherever you choose to buy Delta 9 edibles, make sure you buy Delta 9 products from reputable sources. Low-quality edibles can contain harmful chemicals and pesticides that can be dangerous to your health. Always do your research to ensure you’re purchasing a safe and healthy edible product.
Look for third-party lab reports and transparent retailers. If a retailer does not have lab results, do not buy their products. Rigorous lab testing will break down the potency of a product and tell you the exact amount of Delta 9, CBD, or other cannabinoids it contains.
nama CBD offers delicious flavors, organic hemp, and only the highest quality ingredients. Our Delta 9 THC edibles are derived from American hemp sourced from small farms in Colorado and New Jersey. Keeping it 100% organic and knowing exactly where our products come from is important to us.
The potency of Delta 9 THC gummies varies based on the product and dosage. Delta 9 THC gummies can last for several hours.
Factors that can influence the potency of Delta 9 gummies are:
The amount of THC habitually or recently consumed by an individual
Quality of the cannabis product
The individual’s tolerance level
The effects of Delta 9 THC vary from person to person, and what feels strong to one person may not have the same effect on another.
Is 10 mg of Delta 9 gummy too much?
For some people, 10 mg of Delta 9 THC gummy may be a suitable dose that produces mild to moderate effects, such as a feeling of relaxation and euphoria. However, for others, 10 mg may be too strong.
We recommend you start with a low dose of 2.5–5 mg of Delta 9 and gradually increase the dosage until you find a dose that works for you.
Our Bliss Delta 9 gummies contain 5 mg of THC combined with 5 mg of CBD for balance and the most blissful euphoria. The delicious flavor of honeydew melon helps elevate these yummy munchies to a whole new level.
Intensified sensory experiences, such as taste, sound, or color
Drowsiness or sedation
Heightened creativity or introspection
Delta 9 THC effects can last for several hours, so consume cannabis wisely.
Does Delta 9 make you sleepy?
Some people may experience sedative effects after ingesting Delta 9 THC, resulting in sleepiness. As a psychoactive cannabinoid from the hemp extract, Delta 9 can produce mild side effects such as altered perception, increased appetite, decreased anxiety, and sedation.
One study found that doses between 5 and 15 mg of THC combined with CBD increased sleepiness and mood changes. The study looked into the effects of cannabis extracts on nocturnal sleep, early-morning performance, memory, and sleepiness in eight healthy volunteers.
With the lower dose combination, reaction time was faster on the digit recall task, and with the higher dose combination, subjects reported increased sleepiness and changes in mood. Fifteen milligrams THC would appear to be sedative, while 15 mg CBD appears to have alerting properties as it increased awake activity during sleep and counteracted the residual sedative activity of 15 mg THC. (Nicholson, et. al.)
Before consuming Delta 9 THC or other cannabis products, seek your doctor’s advice, especially if you are on prescription medications. It's also a good idea to look over the product's certificate of analysis to make sure the cannabis product you want to consume is tested for quality and purity.
How much Delta 9 is in a joint?
A joint, on average, contains 0.5 to 1 gram of cannabis with a Delta 9 THC concentration of 10% to 25%. This means that, depending on the potency, a joint might contain anywhere from 50 to 250 milligrams of Delta 9 THC.
The amount of Delta 9 THC in a joint can vary based on the following factors:
The quality of the cannabis strain
The strength of the cannabis strain
The size of the joint
The rolling technique
That’s a whole lot of THC, if you ask us. We prefer safer, healthier, and more dependable ways of reaping the benefits of THC. How about a delicious gummy?
You’re never going to try anything more delicious than our pink lemonade Euphoria gummies. With only 10 mg of THC, these chewy bites can deliver a mild, euphoric, and enjoyable cannabis experience without any adverse effects.
Are CBD vapes safe?
Cannabis vaping is not considered a particularly safe method of consumption. Vapes work rather fast: you can feel the effects of CBD almost immediately. You can consume CBD via a vape pen, vape oil, or vape carts, and you’ll get faster results than with a gummy.
However, inhaling CBD is far from the healthiest way to consume it. Vape carts can be difficult to dose, and you never know the exact amount of CBD you’re getting. Plus, their effects are way too short compared to CBD gummies. Vaping CBD can harm our lungs more than vaping nicotine, according to a study published by Thorax.
Inhalation of CBD aerosol resulted in greater inflammatory changes, more severe lung damage and higher oxidative stress compared with nicotine. CBD aerosol also showed higher toxicity to human cells compared with nicotine.
There are many other safer ways to get your dose of cannabidiol other than vaping.
Try our vegan CBD gummies. They offer a safe and controlled method of consumption for not only CBD but other cannabinoids, as well. You never have to worry about overconsuming with these badass vegan, hemp-derived edibles.
What is HHC?
Hexahydrocannabinol (HHC) is a minor cannabinoid occurring in small quantities in the cannabis plant. Commercial HHC is chemically made from hemp-derived CBD.
HHC is considered THC’s close relative, as both compounds produce similar effects. Users describe the HHC “high” as being something between Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC, but it is a less potent and less psychoactive compound than Delta 9. They report many similar effects to Delta-9 THC: paranoia, sedation, dry mouth, red eyes, increased anxiety, and the munchies.
The most popular ways to consume it are:
HHC vape carts
HHC gummies are federally legal since they are derived from hemp and don’t contain THC.
What is THCV?
Tetrahydrocannabivarin, or THCV, is a compound from the cannabis plant. It offers a unique array of effects and benefits that are a bit different from those of other cannabinoids like Delta-9 THC and CBD.
THCV has a similar molecular structure and psychoactive effects to THC. THCV gummies are great if you're diabetic. A 2020 study revealed the potential therapeutic benefits of THCV in treating obesity and diabetes.
In rodent studies, THCV decreases appetite, increases satiety, and up-regulates energy metabolism, making it a clinically useful remedy for weight loss and management of obesity and type 2 diabetic patients… Also, the effect of THCV on dyslipidemia and glycemic control in type 2 diabetics showed reduced fasting plasma glucose concentration when compared to a placebo group.
It seems that this minor cannabinoid has therapeutic benefits for our nervous system as well. Many users take THCV gummies as a way to treat anxiety, panic disorder, PTSD, and epilepsy. According to the compound summary on the National Library of Medicine:
…THCV has also been reported to activate 5HT1A receptors to produce an antipsychotic effect that has therapeutic potential for ameliorating some of the negative, cognitive and positive symptoms of schizophrenia. Furthermore, THCV interacts with different transient receptor potential (TRP) channels including TRPV2, which may contribute to the analgesic, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer effects of cannabinoids and Cannabis extracts. It has also shown antiepileptiform and anticonvulsant properties, that suggest possible therapeutic application in the treatment of pathophysiologic hyperexcitability states such as untreatable epilepsy.
Do THCP gummies contain Delta-9 THC?
THCP gummies may or may not contain Delta-9 THC, depending on the manufacturer. Delta 9 THC and THCP are not the same molecule, so it is possible to make THCP gummies that do not contain Delta-9.
Tetrahydrocannabiphorol (THCP) is a structural analog of Delta-9 THC. The two cannabinoids’ chemical structures are similar but their characteristics are slightly different. Some users say that THCP is more potent than Delta 9 because it binds more strongly to the body’s cannabinoid receptors. However, THCP research is still in its early stages, and more research is required to fully understand its effects on the body.
Depending on the manufacturer's formulation, some THCP gummies may contain a combination of THCP and Delta- 9 THC or other cannabinoids.
