Δ-9-THC is a molecule found in the cannabis plant. Small amounts of Delta 9 can have beneficial effects on our health, while higher doses may cause some mild side effects and even worsen conditions like anxiety and depression.
At low doses, Delta 9 does not produce the “high” typically associated with smoking weed. Do you want to experience a plethora of benefits while still remaining productive and functional? Shop our incredible Delta 9 gummies.
Effects of Delta 9 on the Brain
Delta 9 interacts with our endocannabinoid system (ECS) to influence important bodily functions. The endocannabinoid system produces chemical signals called cannabinoids that interact with its CB1 and CB2 receptors. Plant-based cannabinoids (phytocannabinoids) mimic the action of our native cannabinoids and regulate the ECS.
Low doses of THC and CBD can calm pain signals, alleviate stress, and relax muscles and nerves—all through interacting with our CB1 and CB2 receptors.
THC and CBD share some of the effects and health benefits. To understand more about how these two potent cannabis extracts affect our body, check out our guide on the differences between CBD and THC.
Our edibles contain small amounts of Delta 9 THC and other cannabis compounds that have synergistic results. The combination of THC, CBD, CBG, CBN, and other compounds results in the entourage effect.
If you’re curious to learn more about yet another helpful cannabinoid, here’s our in-depth guide to CBN.
The Entourage Effect
The entourage effect proposes that the combined benefits of cannabis compounds amplify each other’s properties. In fact, many cannabis products contain two or more cannabinoids, whose combined effects produce more benefits for the user. This means that when THC and CBD are taken together, their therapeutic properties are enhanced.
Read up on the entourage effect here to understand more about this proposed synergistic combo.
There is no better way to experience the combined benefits of THC and CBD other than with our ultimate full-spectrum CBD products. Full-spectrum products contain almost all major and minor cannabis compounds, making their synergistic interaction more beneficial for microdosing users.
