Delta-9 THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the primary psychoactive compound in hemp and cannabis flower, meaning it gets you high. You know it as weed, mary jane, ganja, skunk, bud, herb, grass, etc. But the question remains; is delta-9 legal or not?
Delta-9 THC products are legally treated like CBD and other hemp products that are sold online when they comply with the 2018 Farm Bill. As long as the product is derived from hemp, and contains less than 0.3% delta-9 THC by dry weight volume, then it’s defined as legal hemp and not cannabis.
Hemp hit the market hard after its legalization in 2018, allowing CBD and other hemp-derived products to be legally bought and sold online and in stores. Products such as CBD, Delta-9, Delta-8, Delta-10, HHC, etc, that can all be derived from industrial hemp.
The THC limit of 0.3%, in terms of weight is approximately 3mg/g of product – in our case, gummies.
The legal loophole for delta-9 THC is a bit confusing, but here’s how it works. We made the gummies larger in order to infuse more delta-9 THC into them. HempX did this by creating a 4 gram half moon shaped gummy which can be infused with up to 12mg delta-9 THC.
Customers turn to delta-9 THC products to find relief from a wide range of health issues and also recreational purposes. Delta-9 products work by supporting the healthy functioning of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and helping to boost endocannabinoid signaling.
Research suggests that the ECS is directly connected to: sleep health, stress, mood, appetite, chronic pain and inflammation, anxiety, headaches and migraines, nervous tension, and more.
Adults also enjoy delta-9 THC to elevate their mood, enhance sensory perception, and uplift their experience of everyday life, nature, art, music, and more. Take it from me, one of the test monkeys, with enough HempX Delta 9 gummies you will have no trouble sleeping through the night.
Delta-9 THC is psychoactive, which means that taking higher doses should be done with caution. The psychoactive properties of THC wears off after a few hours, but they can cause uncomfortable side effects, especially for beginners that take too much. Including –feeling a rush of stress or anxiety, dizziness or lightheadedness, or altered motor coordination.
Although the psychoactive side effects of delta-9 THC are physically harmless and short-lived, it’s best to avoid taking too much for your circumstances so that you avoid a negative experience.
If you’re sensitive to cannabinoids or have never taken cannabinoids before it’s always best to start with only a small amount, (<5mg), and wait up to 2 hours to see how delta-9 THC will affect you before consuming more. This approach will help you to find the best dose for your surroundings and prevent you from taking too much THC too quickly.
