What Are Delta 9 Gummies?

Delta 9 THC gummies are a type of cannabis product that contains low amounts of Delta 9 THC. They are made by extracting Delta 9 from the cannabis plant and infusing it into chewy candies. Their soft, flavorful texture is great for people who don’t enjoy smoking.

Our goal is to elevate your cannabis-consuming experience and deliver all the benefits of Delta 9 for a healthier lifestyle. 

We are going to talk about Delta 9 a lot, so make sure to refresh your memory with our in-depth Delta 9 THC guide

How Long Do Delta 9 Gummies Need to Kick In?

It may take longer than other methods of consumption to feel the effects of Delta 9 gummies. They go down the digestive tract and need time to be digested. That’s why the effects of Delta 9 edibles take anywhere between 30 minutes and 2 hours to kick in

Some people prefer getting a quick fix of cannabis, so they choose smoking or vaping (yuck). However, while smoking and vaping are quick-acting, their effects wear off within an hour or so. 

Because the edible form of THC takes longer to enter the bloodstream, gummies deliver a longer-lasting cannabis experience. For some people, the effects of Delta 9 gummies can last up to eight hours

How Much THC is in Delta 9 Gummies?

Our Delta 9 gummies are available in a variety of concentrations to choose from. The THC content per gummy ranges from 2 to 10 mg, with anything below 10 mg THC being considered a low-dose product. 

One of the biggest stars of our edible collection, Energy gummies, are infused with blood orange and contain only 2.5 mg of THC per serving. These vegan candies are a great choice if you want to relieve pain and anxiety. 

If you’re up for a bit more buzz, our Euphoria Delta 9 gummies are the way to go. These strawberry-infused gummies contain 10 mg of THC and 10 mg of CBD to elevate your mood and provide a balanced, relaxing experience.

What Do Delta 9 Gummies Do?

Due to their low but effective THC content, Delta 9 gummies can have a wide range of potential benefits. THC interacts with the endocannabinoid system in our body to produce feelings of euphoria, relaxation, altered sensory perception, increased appetite, and so much more. 

How Do Delta 9 Gummies Make You Feel?

Delta 9 interacts with our endocannabinoid system to create a variety of effects. THC gummies may induce a sense of relaxation and tranquility, lower anxiety and stress, and help alleviate symptoms of many medical conditions. 

They may also increase your senses, making colors appear brighter, sounds more vivid, and your whole sensory experience more enjoyable. They may, in certain situations, inspire creativity and fun. 

A Reddit user shares their experience munching on Delta 9 THC gummies for the first time.

This user took a higher Delta 9 dose (20 mg), so the next morning's tiredness was a normal reaction to higher amounts of THC. While Delta 9 THC might elicit feelings of euphoria, taking more than 10 mg of Delta 9 can cause some adverse effects, such as dry mouth, red eyes, a heightened sense of paranoia and anxiety, and, in some cases, next-day fatigue. The precise effects of THC edibles vary from person to person and depend on factors like tolerance, body weight, and quantity consumed. 

Delta 9 and the Endocannabinoid System

Each person has an endocannabinoid system (ECS). If you’ve never heard about it, don’t worry, you’re not alone. The ECS was only discovered in 1988. The endocannabinoid system is a complex network of chemical signals and receptors that work together to maintain homeostasis. It affects and modulates a wide range of bodily functions, including:

  • Sleep
  • Mood
  • Appetite
  • Stress response
  • Pain perception
  • Bone formation
  • Reproductive health

The ECS consists of endocannabinoids, enzymes that help breakdown endocannabinoids, and cannabinoid receptors. Exogenous cannabinoids that come from plants (like cannabis plants) are called phytocannabinoids, but their functions and effects are quite similar to those our bodies produce. 

As a phytocannabinoid, Delta 9 THC interacts with our ECS to produce its effects. It binds to both CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors, but it's the relationship with CB1 receptors that makes it possible to modulate pain perception, enhance mood, increase appetite, and boost memory function. Pertwee, et. al. reveal that “the responses [Delta 9] elicits appear to be strongly influenced both by the expression level and signaling efficiency of cannabinoid receptors and by ongoing endogenous cannabinoid release.”

Cannabidiol (CBD) is another major cannabinoid extracted from the hemp plant. Read on to learn how, when taken together, CBD enhances the effects of Delta 9 THC. 

Delta 9 in the Entourage Effect

For some people, Delta 9 may produce a bit stronger effects, especially if they’re first time consumers. To counteract the potential negative side effects of consuming THC in higher amounts, THC and CBD are taken together. The combined action of THC and CBD is known as the “entourage effect.” 

The entourage effect refers to the enhanced effects and benefits of cannabis components acting together rather than in isolation. The inclusion of CBD in Delta 9 gummies might help balance the psychoactive effects of Delta 9, providing a more mellow experience. Unlike THC, CBD can’t make you high, probably because it does not bind to cannabinoid receptors in the ECS directly. Instead, it regulates the activation and function of these receptors in the presence of THC. 

CBD has little binding affinity for either CB1 or CB2 receptors, but it is capable of antagonizing them in the presence of THC. In fact, CBD behaves as a non-competitive negative allosteric modulator of CB1 receptor, and it reduces the efficacy and potency of THC and AEA. CBD also regulates the perception of pain by affecting the activity of a significant number of other targets. (Vučković, et. al.)

In the presence of THC, CBD improves its safety and tolerability and downregulates its possible adverse effects (e.g., increased anxiety and heart rate, and sedation). That’s why the best Delta 9 gummies—the so-called full spectrum CBD—contain THC, CBD, and other minor cannabinoids and terpenes

According to research, a CBD extract combined with other low-dose cannabinoids was efficient in reducing the frequency of seizures in participants with refractory epilepsy. The findings reveal that “the roots of this difference is likely due to synergistic effects of CBD with other phytocompounds (aka Entourage effect)...”

Our full spectrum CBD gummies contain all the good stuff mixed and matched to increase the benefits and peter out the possible negative side effects. Our Bliss gummies are made with equal concentrations of CBD and THC, making them the best way to experience the ultimate entourage effect. Honeydew melon-infused flavor and all natural ingredients make these juicy full spectrum CBD gummies a delight.

Why Delta 9 Gummies Are Better Than Other Methods of Consumption

Microdosing cannabis with Delta 9 gummies has more advantages than other methods of consumption, such as smoking, vaping, sublinguals, and tinctures. Here’s why:

  • Delta 9 gummies offer controlled THC dosage. The THC content in Delta 9 gummies is precisely measured. This gives cannabis users more control over the dosage intake, resulting in a more consistent and reliable cannabis experience. When you smoke or vape, the quantity of THC you consume can vary greatly depending on the strain and amount, which poses serious problems when it comes to dosage control. 
  • Delta 9 gummies offer longer-lasting effects. We already said this, but we don’t mind repeating ourselves: the effects of edibles with Delta 9 take longer to wear off compared to smoking or vaping. Because THC is metabolized through the digestive tract, the effects of THC are slower to kick in but more sustained. The end result is a smoother, longer-lasting cannabliss. 
  • Delta 9 gummies contain lower THC concentrations than cannabis cigarettes or vape pens. With smoking, it’s easy to inhale too much too quickly, but it’s really hard to keep track of how much THC (and other who knows what compounds) you’ve consumed. Microdosing cannabis with edibles allows you to enjoy the potential health advantages without the overpowering effects. 
  • Taking Delta 9 gummies is much safer than smoking. Edibles completely bypass the respiratory system, which can help those with respiratory disorders. Smoking is often associated with an increased risk of lung cancer, but munching on low-dose THC gummies is not only delicious but also safer for your health. 
  • Eating Delta 9 gummies is a discreet and easy way to enjoy your dose of cannabis. No additional equipment is required, no knowledge of rolling or using vape pens, and no detailed measuring or calculation of how much THC you’ve consumed. Simply pop one yummy gummy in your mouth and chew to dissolve its rich taste and soft texture. 

You heard all about the combination of Delta 9 and CBD that produces the best results. But have you heard of our Euphoria sour berry gummies? With an equal ratio of THC and CBD (10 mg), these fruit-filled vegan edibles guarantee a mild buzz and a deliciously soothing cannabis experience. These gummies undergo third-party lab testing to ensure quality and safety. 

If you have doubts that our THC and CBD gummies are safe, you’ll find all the answers in our article on the safety of Delta 9 THC. (Spoiler alert: they are.)

How To Buy Delta 9 Gummies

The recent hemp industry boom has led to too many brands on the market that sell Delta 9 THC products. With so many choices available, it’s important to choose high-quality products from reputable sources. Low-quality edibles can contain harmful chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals, and other dangerous ingredients. 

You can look for reputable brands of Delta 9 gummies online, or try to buy quality edibles locally. Whichever way you go, check for lab reports. Every reputable brand should be testing its products in third-party labs for safety, purity, and potency. That’s how you know the product doesn’t contain GMOs and other harmful ingredients. 

The process of extraction should also be taken into consideration when purchasing Delta 9 THC gummies. Extraction methods directly affect the quality of Delta 9 products. The most common one is the CO2 extraction method, in which carbon dioxide is used to separate the hemp plant’s natural chemicals from the plant material. This renders the product contaminant-free and safe to consume. Some brands use ethanol extraction, but since this method involves adding artificial flavors, the end result is a lower-quality product with compromised purity and efficacy. That’s a hard no from us.

Speaking of reliable and safe edibles, buying quality hemp-derived products has never been easier. Our delicious Delta 9 edibles and CBD gummies are derived from American hemp sourced from small farms in New Jersey and Colorado. Keeping it 100% American and knowing exactly where our products come from is important to us—and it should be important to you, too. 

Our edibles contain cannabis compounds derived from hemp, not marijuana. This makes all our products containing Delta 9 completely legal at the federal level across the US. In fact, Delta 9 THC is illegal in only two US states, so if you live in Kansas or Idaho, you won’t be able to buy Delta 9 gummies there. 

There’s a huge difference between Delta 9 derived from hemp and Delta 9 extracted from marijuana, so check out our in-depth explanation of the differences between hemp and marijuana

Are Delta 9 Gummies Legal in the US?

Delta 9 edibles are legal at the federal level across the US (except Idaho and Kansas), provided the products containing THC are compliant with the 2018 Farm Bill. For THC products to be Farm Bill compliant, they must meet the following criteria: 

  • The Delta 9 THC must come from hemp, not marijuana.
  • The THC product must contain no more than 0.3% of Delta 9 THC by dry weight.

Since they meet both criteria, our Delta 9 gummies are federally legal in the US.

Delta 9 Gummies FAQ

The strength of Delta 9 THC in a THC gummy determines its potency. This type of information should always be listed on the product's label. Individual parameters should also be factored in, such as body weight, metabolism, and tolerance to THC. 

Delta 9 gummies are generally considered to be stronger than gummies that contain Delta 8 THC. Delta 8 is another phytocannabinoid that packs a heck of a therapeutic punch. To learn more about it, check out our detailed guide to Delta 8 THC

Gummies can contain microdoses of 2 mg THC per gummy all the way up to high potency variants with 20 mg or more. Anything above 10 mg THC is considered a higher dose, so we adjust our doses and potency levels carefully. Our pink lemonade Euphoria gummies contain 10 mg of pure hemp-derived Delta 9 THC. 

If you’re a beginner, you should probably start lower than that, in which case our Relax Plus gummies are the perfect choice. Five milligrams of Delta 9 are balanced by 25 milligrams of CBD in this match made in seventh heaven. 

Consuming microdoses of Delta 9 is a great introduction to the world of cannabliss. Edibles with Delta 9 allow for exact dosage control, so you can always track your intake easily. Start low, with 1 to 2 mg of THC per day, and see how you feel after a month or so. Gradually increase the dosage as you feel more comfortable and confident. 

Some users feel energetic and inspired when taking low-dose THC gummies, while others experience a more calming effect that helps them sleep. There are many cannabis users who consume Delta 9 before bed, and with our Sleep Plus edibles, experiencing the sleep-promoting benefits of Delta 9 THC has never been easier (or more delicious). These gummies for sleep contain an additional natural sleep aid, melatonin, that eases your way to slumber. 

While some people feel relaxed and sleepy when consuming Delta 9 gummies, others may feel highly motivated and focused. This is because Delta 9 THC has different effects on different people. Delta 9 may even help alleviate the symptoms of attention deficit disorder (ADHD) and improve focus and mental performance. 

Other factors may also play a role in making you feel pumped and ready to take on the day after munching on a THC gummy, such as the cannabis strain, THC concentration, and your metabolism and tolerance to cannabis. 

If you want to feel more energized, look for sativa-dominant strains, which are frequently associated with enhanced energy and creativity. Check out the differences between sativa and indica, two major cannabis strains.

Consuming Delta 9 THC at higher doses can cause some side effects. However, our Delta 9 gummies do not contain more than 10 mg THC per gummy, so unless you take more than one, you should be safe from experiencing any negative side effects. 

Other potential concerns to be aware of are failing drug tests because Delta-9 THC is a controlled substance that may appear on screening tests. 

Delta-9 THC is a potent phytocannabinoid that reduces inflammation. Delta 9 targets inflammation and pain via our endocannabinoid system. Medical marijuana attacks inflammation by reducing the number of pro-inflammatory proteins called cytokines. This slows down the reproduction of white blood cells, thus slowing down or preventing inflammatory responses. 

A 2022 study on medical marijuana revealed that THC microdoses can relieve chronic pain, including neuropathic pain, arthritic pain, and cancer pain, mainly by lowering inflammatory signaling pathways. 

In multiple experimental models, both in vitro and in vivo, several phytocannabinoids, including Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabigerol (CBG), exhibit activity against inflammation. These phytocannabinoids may bind to ECS and/or other receptors and ameliorate various inflammatory-related diseases by activating several signaling pathways.

Saying that Delta-9 THC causes brain damage is currently unsupported by scientific consensus. In fact, low doses of THC and CBD might be good for the brain, reduce neuroinflammation, and improve cognition. Microdosing cannabis may even help reverse brain aging and fight age-related neurodegenerative diseases. 

Low doses of Delta 9 THC might be beneficial for the brain, especially for people diagnosed with dementia. Delta-9 THC does interact with areas of the brain responsible for memory. Microdosing THC has been associated with cognitive and behavioral improvement in patients with mnemonic and non-mnemonic Alzheimer’s disease. 

Consuming THC at lower doses has benefits for the brain and memory, while excessive amounts of THC may lead to acute memory impairment.

Delta-9 THC has the ability to increase levels of dopamine. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter responsible for feelings of pleasure, reward, and motivation. Delta 9 can cause a boost in dopamine levels, which can lead to feelings of pleasure or happiness. Remember how THC may have mild psychoactive effects when taken in higher amounts? THC’s interaction with CB1 receptors, which are located primarily in the central nervous system, boosts dopamine and causes those pleasurable feelings of relaxation and euphoria. 

If you consume too much Delta 9, you may experience a number of adverse effects. These can include anxiety, paranoia, or even hallucinations and panic attacks, especially if you are new to the substance or have consumed a larger dose than your body is accustomed to. 

You might also experience physical symptoms like dry mouth, red eyes, increased heart rate, and, in some cases, dizziness or nausea. Also, Delta-9 THC's psychoactive effects can become more intense, potentially leading to disorientation or discomfort. Remember that when consuming Delta 9 THC, start with a small dose and gradually increase it as you become more accustomed to its effects.
