Delta 9 THC – What you should Know

WHAT IS DELTA 9 THC?

The rewarding benefits of cannabis sativa start with multiple cannabinoids, but the primary active component is Delta-9 (tetrahydrocannabinol). The unique cannabinoid Delta-9 THC is the main compound responsible for its psychoactive properties.

Our cannabinoid receptor type 1 (CB1) is expressed in our peripheral and central nervous system. Using THC products will affect these systems causing a person to have symptoms of relaxation, contentment and some may even use THC for pain relief. THC can be found in products in the form of an edible like gummies and smoking products such as vapes or cannabis flower. Cannabis use can be for recreational use or medicinal purposes. Although society’s acceptance for the use of cannabis has been more widely acceptable in the USA over the past decade. There are still States that have banned products with THC.

Where is Delta-9 Sourced from? 

 Cannabis was already present in Central Asia over 11,700 years ago. The earliest record of medicinal use of cannabis was found in China. Other findings of the medicinal uses of cannabis can even traced back to before the Common Era in Egypt and Greece.

THC is extracted from the cannabis sativa plant using lab techniques for clean extraction. The most common method is closed-loop CO2 extraction which is considered to be one of the cleanest and safest methods.

Some solventless methods such as dry sieve and water extraction can be used to extract entire trichomes. Extraction methods that avoid unwanted water such as chlorophyll, some may use hydrocarbon extraction. Ethanol extraction and Co2 extraction are also safe and efficient ways to source Delta-9 THC. 

How is Delta-9 legal? 

The legality of Delta-9 seems ambiguous these days but in 2018 the Farm Bill was signed into law. The definition of hemp extract which includes the cannabis sativa plant and any part of this plant with a delta-9 concentration of no more than 0.3% on a dry weight basis. While the bill legalizes industrial hemp it also removes the 0.3% THC from the schedule 1 of the controlled substance act. 

What Delta-9 Gummies are available and which ones to choose?

Hempstrax has two options: Vegan Sour Fruits and Vegan Watermelon gummies. They are available in two different milligrams. It is important to have options when it comes to THC products and it’s also important to know your limits when consuming THC. For example, if you’re new to taking THC, 10MG may be best for you. For a more frequent cannabis consumer 20MG will be a better dosage. 

Always remember to create a comfortable and safe environment when you take Delta-9 THC products and refrain from driving or operating any machinery.
