Delta 9 Gummies FAQ
What does the entourage effect feel like?
You can’t really feel the entourage effect at work. The entourage effect refers to the longer-term benefits you get from combining multiple cannabinoids, as opposed to any immediate psychological effect you might notice.
The best way to start feeling the benefits of the entourage effect is after at least a month of continual use of cannabis microdosing products. If you experience improvement in mood and focus, if you sleep better or feel much less stressed out or anxious, congratulations—you’re experiencing the entourage effect.
Is Delta-9 stronger than Delta-8?
Delta 9 produces stronger effects than Delta-8 THC. According to a study on consumer experiences with Delta 8, its effects are milder and less psychoactive than Delta 9’s.
Researchers at the University of Buffalo found that Delta-8 gummies cause feelings of relaxation and pain relief—without interfering with the users’ ability to perform daily activities. That’s a great reason to add Delta-8 THC products—like our Elevate Gummies—to your microdosing routine.
There are ways in which Delta 9 and Delta 8 products differ—like their potency—so make sure to inform yourself before making a decision to purchase.
Does Delta 9 alleviate pain?
Many medical marijuana advocates—cancer and AIDS patients, migraine sufferers, and people with movement disorders—attest to microdosed cannabis helping relieve pain.
A research paper found that cannabis use for cancer pain has led to a reduction in opioid use by 64% and improved the overall quality of the patients’ lives. In addition, many people suffering from chronic migraines have experienced a decrease in chronic pain episodes after implementing a microdosing regimen.
In 2015, research was conducted on the use of cannabis and cannabinoids for treating various chronic pain conditions. The researchers suggested that cannabis might be an effective way to relieve chronic pain, including neuropathic pain, arthritis pain, and cancer pain.
Are CBD vapes safe?
Cannabis vaping is not considered a particularly safe method of consumption. Despite this, CBD vapes have become popular recently. They work rather fast: you can feel the effects of CBD almost immediately. You can consume CBD via a vape pen, vape oil, or vape cartridges and you’ll get faster results than with a gummy.
However, inhaling CBD is far from the healthiest way to consume CBD. Vape cartridges 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.
There are many other safer ways to get your dose of cannabidiol other than vaping.
Our vegan CBD gummies offer a safe and controlled method of microdosing CBD and other cannabinoids. You never have to worry about overconsuming with these hemp-derived edibles.
What is THCV?
Tetrahydrocannabivarin, or THCV, is a compound from the cannabis plant. It offers a unique array of effects and benefits a bit different from other cannabinoids like delta-9 THC and CBD.
THCV has a similar molecular structure and psychoactive properties to THC. Unlike its big cousins THC and CBD, THCV suppresses appetite. This may be useful to cannabis users who are focused on weight loss, but should be avoided altogether if you’re suffering from appetite loss or anorexia.
THCV products are great if you're diabetic. Some research shows promising results in THCV’s ability to regulate blood level sugars. It seems that this minor cannabinoid has therapeutic benefits on our mental health, as well. Many people take THCV gummies as a way to treat anxiety, panic disorder, and PTSD.
Can I mix Delta 9 and alcohol?
Alcohol has the ability to reduce inhibitions and promote feelings of relaxation. Low doses of Delta 9 can have similar effects on the human body, but research has shown that both together may amplify each other’s effects.
The results of various clinical trials show that participants who received alcohol plus cannabis compounds together experienced significant impairments of motor and psychomotor performances.
Combining alcohol with Delta 9 or CBD may cause drowsiness and impaired coordination. Cannabis can also potentially increase the effects of alcohol, causing the person to feel more drunk or impaired faster.
