Delta 9 Gummies FAQ
Is CBD legal?
The 2018 Farm Bill differentiates hemp from the legal definition of marijuana in the Controlled Substances Act. This made CBD products—like our CBD gummies for sleep—federally legal if derived from hemp and containing no more than 0.3% THC.
Do edibles show up in a drug test?
THC and CBD products can cause positive test results. Delta-9 THC can be detected by a drug test for several days after consumption. The chemicals absorbed from the cannabis edibles may be lower than with inhaled cannabis. The length of detection depends on the type of test.
Urine drug test shows traces of cannabis from 1-5 days. This method is mostly used to detect THC. Using a hair drug test, the effects of cannabis can show in your system for up to 90 days.
Other factors should be also taken into consideration, like:
- The potency of THC in the edibles (THC concentrations in Delta 9 gummies can vary depending on the product)
- The user's metabolism and cannabis tolerance
- The user's level of hydration
- The frequency of usage
Do you need a prescription for Delta 9 gummies?
No, you don’t need a prescription to buy Delta-9 gummies. Online purchase of our THC gummies is possible without a prescription or doctor’s appointment.
It’s always a good idea to consult your doctor or a qualified medical professional before consuming cannabis products.
Can Delta-9 make my anxiety worse?
Delta 9 THC appears to help some people with anxiety and other mental disorders, but it seems to have the opposite effect on others. Some people experience worsening symptoms of depression and anxiety after consuming Delta 9.
The reason for this lies in the dosage. High doses of Delta-9 have been associated with increased symptoms and have a potential in making certain conditions worse, according to a study.
Consumption methods are also important. Smoking or vaping provides an unreliable method of consuming cannabis since you cannot track the exact amount of Delta 9 THC you’ve inhaled.
The practice of microdosing edibles offers the safest, most effective way of mitigating symptoms of anxiety, stress, and other anxiety disorders.
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 Delta 9’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 less potent and less psychoactive. They report many similar effects to delta-9 thc: paranoia, sedation, dry mouth, red eyes, increased anxiety, and the munchies.
The most popular way to consume it is with HHC vape cartridges, gummies, and other HHC products. HHC gummies are federally legal, since they are derived from hemp and not technically THC. Yet, some experts remain skeptical about HHC legality.
HHC vs HHC-O
Let’s meet another cousin in the family: HHC acetate or HHC-O. To make HHC-O products, producers add acetic anhydride to HHC molecules. This increases their potency: manufacturers report that HHC-O can be as three times as strong as HHC.
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.
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 some differences between Delta 9 and Delta 8 products—like their potency—so make sure to inform yourself before making a decision to purchase.
