Delta 9 THC Frequently Asked Questions
Does Delta 9 show up on drug tests?
Yes, Delta 9 will show up on a drug test, as will all other forms of THC. If you know you’re going to be drug tested, stop taking products with THC about a month or so before the test, even if the product in question is fully legal.
Can you sell Delta 9 gummies in Idaho?
No, at this moment Delta 9 gummies are illegal in Idaho since they contain THC.
What is stronger, Delta 9 or Delta-8?
Generally, Delta 9 THC is stronger than Delta 8 THC. According to a recent study, the effects of Delta 8 are much milder, with participants comparing this compound to ‘Delta 9’s younger sibling’. Due to their milder effects, Delta 8 gummies are a great choice for people new to products containing hemp.
How strong is Delta-9 THC?
The strength of Delta 9 and its effect on a person depends on 2 factors:
- The dose of Delta 9 taken
- How accustomed the consumer is to taking Delta 9 THC
Additionally, the following factors also influence how Delta 9 affects the person taking it:
- What is the consumption method? Some THC substances travel through the lungs and become accessible more quickly (like vaping or smoking). Some products must be digested (like edibles, gummies, oils, or capsules). These various forms may influence how long it takes to affect your brain and how powerful Delta 9 will affect you. Some forms of consumption have a quick and intense impact, while others have a longer, constant, and less obvious psychoactive effect.
- What is the quality of the Delta 9 used? Is it pure? Is it saturated with chemicals or other substances? What percentage of Delta 9 THC is consumed? Higher levels have far greater impacts.
- How often is the product used? If you take Delta 9 THC and other cannabinoids on a daily basis, they will remain in your system and influence how responsive you are to new inputs of Delta 9.
Can you get Delta 8 in Idaho?
Delta-8 THC is illegal to buy in Idaho. State lawmakers prohibited the use, possession, sale, distribution, purchase, production, and promotion of Delta-8 products in 2021. All other THC isomers, including Delta-10, THC-O, and HHC, are also prohibited under Idaho state law.
If you live in another state, you can buy our Delta 8 gummies.
Delta 8 legality nationally
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) confirmed the illegal status of "synthetically produced THCs."
Because the hemp plant naturally generates minimal levels of Delta 8, manufacturers have used hemp-derived CBD to turn it into Delta 8 via isomerization.
Converting one chemical component into another, in this case, tetrahydrocannabinol, might be problematic since it permits the DEA to classify Delta 8 as a "synthetically generated tetrahydrocannabinol."
Delta 8 legality in Idaho
In 2021, Idaho Governor signed House Bill 126 into law. House Bill 126 prohibits processors from creating products through chemical isomerization, a simple process where Delta-8 is converted from isolated CBD using specialized chemicals in a laboratory setting.
Unfortunately, we cannot sell our Delta 8 gummies to Idaho residents.
What states can you get Delta-9?
Although the baseline law for legality of Delta 9 products is the 2018 Farm Bill, which most states simply transcribe into their state laws, some states have taken different approaches. Some states keep hemp Delta 9 products as legal, others restrict Delta 9 through regulation or outright banning it.
Hemp-derived Delta 9 products are legal in 42 states, plus Puerto Rico and D.C., with these states essentially following the Farm Bill when it comes to Delta-9
Hemp-derived CBD products are legal in Kansas but only if they contain 0% Delta-9 THC.
Idaho is the only state where hemp Delta-9 is explicitly banned.
Is Delta 9 an indica or sativa?
Delta 9 itself is neither an indica or a sativa, but it can come from either of the two main strain types of the cannabis plant: Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica. These cannabis plants produce different effects, as indica strains contain more CBD, leading to a more relaxing high. Unlike hemp-derived Delta 9, marijuana-derived Delta 9 THC is not federally legal.
Is Delta-9 legal in all states?
In December 2018, the U.S. Congress passed the 2018 Farm Bill, federally legalizing hemp, defined as cannabis (Cannabis sativa L.) and derivatives of cannabis with extremely low concentrations of the psychoactive compound Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) (no more than 0.3 percent THC on a dry weight basis), from the definition of marijuana in the Controlled Substances Act (CSA).
These products are now legal in 48 states which essentially follow the Farm Bill when it comes to Delta-9 legalization. Idaho and Kansas are the only two states where hemp Delta 9 is explicitly banned.
Do Delta 9 Gummies show up on a drug test?
Yes, even if you consume legal Delta 9 Gummies, you may fail a drug test. If you only took Delta 9 once, it will likely be cleared from your urine in four days or less. If you have taken it habitually, it can take a month or more to clear your system for a drug test.
Can I fly with Delta 9 gummies?
Yes, you can fly to and from 48 US states with hemp-derived Delta 9 gummies that contain less than 0.3% of THC, except Idaho. If you are traveling abroad, the legality status of hemp products in your destination country will dictate whether you can fly with Delta 9. Remember, hemp is a controlled substance in many countries, and even fully illegal in some.
Is Delta 9 federally legal?
The Farm Bill that was passed in 2018 made it legal in the United States to grow and sell hemp-derived products that contain 0.3% or less Delta-9 THC by dry weight. This law applies to all states in the US, plus Puerto Rico and D.C.
However, some states have additional restrictions on Delta-9 THC, and California is the only state with general restrictions on hemp-derived Delta-9 THC. These restrictions involve testing requirements and packaging restrictions.
Despite these restrictions, hemp Delta 9 products are still legal in 48 states, making them widely available to consumers across the country.
Is Delta-10 legal in Idaho?
Scientists classify Delta 10 THC as semi-synthetic since it is created by substantially altering the CBD component. This is where the legal difficulties of Delta-10 enter in. In its Interim Final Rule, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) affirmed that "all synthetically generated tetrahydrocannabinol remain Schedule I Controlled Substances.”
Idaho’s stance on Delta 10 appears to be the same as for Delta 8: that it cannot be legally manufactured, produced, or sold in Idaho.
Is THC-O legal in Idaho?
No, like Delta-8, you cannot legally purchase any hemp or marijuana-derived delta-10, THC-O, or HHC products in Idaho under state law.
Although it is federally legal, THC-O is not legal in all US states, and many have revoked its legal status in recent years due to its potency. If you consume THC-O in Idaho, keep track of any changes to hemp industry laws that may jeopardize its legality status.
Does Delta-9 get you stoned?
Delta 9 THC can get you “high” or “stoned” at a high enough dosage. Delta 9 gummies are a type of cannabis-infused candy that contain lower doses of Delta 9 THC. Our Delta 9 gummies will not make you high if you follow our recommended dosage—but you will experience the beneficial effects of Delta 9.
The effects of Delta 9 products can vary depending on the person, with factors such as genetics, tolerance levels, and other variables playing a role. However, generally speaking, Delta 9 THC is known for causing relaxation, euphoria, and increased appetite. If you're new to Delta 9 gummies, it's important to start with a low dose and see how you react before consuming more.
Which weed strains are best for focus?
There are a number of marijuana strains for improving anxiety and focus, including Blackberry Kush, Charlotte’s Web, and Granddaddy Purple.
