Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta 9 THC or Δ-9-THC) is the main compound in cannabis. It is one of the most well-known and well-researched cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. Many cannabis users microdose Delta 9 to treat a variety of medical conditions, including relief from pain, nausea, and anxiety.
Delta 9 THC gummies allow you to incorporate small amounts of cannabis into your everyday life while remaining productive and functional.
Let’s look at some of the benefits of microdosing Delta 9 THC.
Our most recent addition to the edibles family could easily be the most enjoyable to the palate. Hemp Euphoria Gummies are infused with the most seductive pink lemonade and contain 10 mg of pure Delta 9. They can mitigate headaches and get rid of nausea, simultaneously producing a blissfully euphoric experience.
How Does Delta 9 Affect the Brain?
Delta 9 interacts with our endocannabinoid system (ECS) to produce its therapeutic effects. The endocannabinoid system is a complex network of receptors and signals that regulate important bodily functions—like memory processing, immune response, pain perception, appetite, sleep, hormonal modulation, and many others.
The ECS produces chemical signals called cannabinoids that interact with its CB1 and CB2 receptors in the ECS. Phyto-cannabinoids (plant-based cannabinoids) mimic the action of our native cannabinoids and modulate the ECS similarly. For example, low doses of THC and CBD can calm pain signals, alleviate stress and anxiety, relax muscles, reduce nausea, increase appetite, and enhance brain function—all through interacting with our CB1 and CB2 receptors.
All our Delta 9 products contain low amounts of Delta 9, CBD, CBN, and other helpful compounds to produce the entourage effect.
The Entourage Effect
The entourage effect describes a cannabis synergy in which benefits are enhanced by each other’s presence. Via mechanisms that are still being researched, compounds derived from cannabis plants appear to act synergistically with one other.
This means that the beneficial effects of cannabidiol (CBD) become more pronounced when you take THC and CBD together, and vice versa. CBD seems to soften the psychoactive effects of THC.
You can experience the entourage effect with any product that contains Delta 9, CBD, and other cannabinoids. Our full spectrum gummies are a good way to do that. They contain Delta 9, CBD, CBN, CBC, and other beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes.
For those struggling with sleep, our Sleep Plus Gummies can provide relief. These vegan gummies contain 25mg of CBD and only 2 mg of Delta 9 to fight insomnia every night.
The full entourage effect can be produced by full spectrum CBD products, as they contain all cannabinoids, including Delta 9 THC. Broad spectrum CBD gummies contain the majority of cannabinoids except Delta 9.

How Long Does it Take to Feel the Effects?
Gummies deliver a slower yet more sustained cannabis experience. They take time to enter the bloodstream via the digestive tract. You’ll feel the effects of Delta 9 gummies 30 minutes at the earliest, but often more like an hour or two. Depending on the THC concentration, your metabolism, and your genetic makeup, the effects of edibles will last for several hours (often as long as 8).
Some of our Delta 9 products are fast acting. Thanks to a unique relaxation-promoting blend of cannabinoids and terpenes, our Relax Plus Gummies are able to achieve results in only 15 minutes. Only 5mg of Delta 9 will ensure a light buzz.
