There is a new way to experience the potent health benefits of Delta-9 THC through hemp-derived products.
Delta-9 THC products are rising in popularity and availability – you have probably come across them for sale online. This is because D9 can be extracted from hemp containing no more than 0.3% ∆9 THC by dry weight, which is compliant with the Federal 2018 Farm Bill. Advanced extraction technologies have made it possible for consumers to experience the elevating effects of THC products made from hemp.
Do you want to learn more about Delta-9 THC? If so, you landed in the right place.
Here are 11 things you need to know before consuming Delta-9.
Delta-9 THC is a Natural Component in Hemp and Cannabis
In order to understand what Delta-9 is, it is necessary to know that it is a cannabinoid that is naturally abundant in hemp and cannabis plants. Simply put, Delta-9 is THC, the cannabinoid that gets you high. It is more potent than many other cannabinoids and interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system receptors. As a result, it can provide many wellness benefits, and people like the blissful experience they get from this compound.
Most Common Effects of Delta-9 THC
D9 THC is a psychoactive cannabinoid that can make you feel slightly buzzed. The health effects can range from mild euphoria to deep relaxation. Consumers enjoy the potency and benefits such as reduced physical discomfort, improved appetite, better mood, increased creativity, and more.
Not all Delta-9 Products are Created Equally
Since D9 products can be made from hemp, many new brands are popping up to take advantage of the rising demand for these products where they were once not available. Where Delta-9 comes from and how it is formulated can vary, but it is important to note that products high in Delta-8 probably rely on synthesized D8 THC and are produced in a lab, while Delta-9 is naturally occurring, simply extracted from the plant’s natural oils. Product safety and product consistency are ongoing questions for synthesized cannabinoids of all kinds.
We have lab tested some of the products out there and have found them to be inaccurately labeled or misleading, with much less or way over the amount of THC labeled. This is alarming and dangerous to the consumer. We recommend only purchasing Delta-9 products from reputable brands that are known for providing high-quality extracts with transparent lab results. You can securely purchase naturally derived Delta-9 products here at Pure Hemp Botanicals risk-free with our 100% satisfaction guarantee policy. We guarantee product potency and quality, with third-party lab results available.
You Can Legally Buy Hemp-Derived D9 Products Online and In Stores
Since hemp was made federally legal by the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp-derived Delta-9 products containing 0.3% or less of THC by dry weight are also legal. However, in order to purchase such products, you need to be at least 21 years old. You can buy D9 products online here at Pure Hemp Botanicals, or you may find them in convenience stores and dispensaries. All buyers should be aware that even though D9 hemp products are federally legal, some states have banned them. We do not offer legal advice on this matter. Check with your state laws before purchasing or shipping.
Delta-9 THC is Strong, So Go Slow
Delta-9 THC is new to many people. If you’ve never consumed D9 before, start with a low dose and go slow. Take one serving of Pure Elevate and wait and see how it will affect you before consuming more. This is especially important when experimenting with edibles and concentrates. Sometimes the effects can come on slowly and gradually build up or feel potent and fast upon consumption, wearing down after a few hours. The effects also depend on the product you are using, how frequently you use it, your metabolism, weight, and other similar factors.
D9 Can Be Felt Within 10 Minutes to an Hour
Delta-9 is a potent cannabinoid that can be felt within minutes to an hour after consumption. The effects vary depending on dose and your level of sensitivity. Your dose size impacts how long you will feel the effects. We recommend taking one serving and waiting a few hours before another one. Low doses are great for relaxation and ease, and high doses are great for those experienced with THC seeking a high potency effect for deeper relief.
Avoid Mixing D9 with Alcohol and Other Substances
Avoid mixing alcohol with D9 THC. Experimenting with D9 THC alone is more likely to result in the experience you want to have. Mixing substances can make it challenging to predict how you will be affected and can result in adverse side effects. Play it safe and try D9 THC by itself until you know how you react to it. And remember that products containing cannabinoids like CBD and THC can potentially interfere with other medications you may be taking. Consult your doctor if you are taking medications before consuming cannabinoid products.
Do Not Take Delta-9 THC If You Are Going to Operate a Vehicle
Take D9 responsibly in a safe place where you won’t need to operate a vehicle or do any other high-risk activities. It is unlawful to operate a vehicle after consumption.
Store Your D9 Products Responsibly
Keep Delta-9 products in their original packaging, so they are easily identifiable. Be sure to store them in a safe area that cannot be accessed by pets or young children. It is recommended to keep D9 products in a cool, dry place away from pets and minors.
Try Your First Dose of D9 THC in The Evening, at Home
If you are not sure how D9 will affect you, we recommend trying it in the evening at home. If you overshoot and feel drowsy, then you can go to sleep. The most common effect of THC is a relaxed and buzzed feeling. That can certainly be a plus for many people, but others safely use it to manage symptoms and discomfort. When experimenting with dosing, consume D9 in a safe place where you can relax. That way, if you need to hit the hay, it’s not an issue, and you can adjust the dose accordingly next time.
Don’t Use Delta-9 Products If You Need to Pass a Drug Test
Both cannabis and hemp Delta-9 products will trigger a positive drug test because these tests are designed to detect THC metabolites in your body. Even though hemp-derived Delta-9 products are federally legal, the test does not distinguish between THC traces from hemp and cannabis. Therefore, if you have an upcoming drug screening, do not consume Delta-9 products. It is important to note that full spectrum CBD products also contain trace amounts of THC.
