Compliant delta 9 THC products are the latest innovation to hit the hemp industry. These psychoactive THC products conform with the federal law on hemp and are a fantastic way for cannabis lovers to enjoy a legal high.
Given the soaring popularity of delta-9, it’s the perfect time to try our different products to find your best dose.
You may be asking why we can sell elta 9 THC Austin products in Texas where THC is not legal. This is because our delta 9 THC comes from hemp and is less than 0.3% THC delta 9.
Delta-9 is short for delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol but is better known by its simple THC acronym. That’s correct, delta-9 is THC, the same intoxicating compound that’s found in marijuana. But marijuana is illegal, right, so how can companies sell “delta-9”?
The “compliant delta-9” products being sold by numerous hemp retailers contain less than 0.3% THC 9 and are legal according to the 2018 Agriculture Improvement Act (Farm Bill).
Essentially, the 2018 Farm Bill legalized cannabis-based products that consist of less than 0.3% THC on a dry weight basis. Products that meet this description are officially classified as “hemp.”
Let’s use delta-9 gummies as an example. For most users, 10mg of THC makes for a pleasant high. To meet legal requirements, a 10mg THC gummy must have a total weight above 3.33 grams. That’s a little bigger than regular gummies, but it’s a small price to pay for legal THC and many brands are now making these larger, legally compliant gummies!
Normally, you would need to get a prescription for high potency delta-9 THC gummies. However, thanks to the 2018 Hemp Farm Bill, you can now buy delta-9 THC products without a prescription.
You don’t need a doctor’s prescription or special medical card to buy delta-9 THC gummies. It’s a hundred percent legal, even though they are psychoactive gummies. Here’s why!
According to the 2018 Hemp Farm (the one that officially legalized hemp) any hemp product is legal as long as it contains less than 0.3% delta-9 THC by dry weight volume. That means that if you can create a delta-9 gummy (derived from hemp) and adheres to the THC limit, then it is considered to be legal at the federal level.
To comply with the legal limit of THC, RESTART CBD crafted a tasty fruit gummy that weighs about 4g total. That means that, by dry weight volume, our delta-9 gummy is still within the 0.3% limit.
You can buy RESTART delta-9 THC gummies in store or online without a prescription or medical card right now, and it’s completely legal.
The effects of consuming high potency edibles, such as several delta-9 THC gummies at once, have a potent full-body effect, along with strong psychoactive effects.
Compared to other forms of delta-9 THC and cannabinoids, gummies and other THC edibles are often preferred by people taking them for health issues related to pain.
Cannabinoids like THC have analgesic properties, which means that they numb certain cells in the body responsible for sending pain signals to the brain, called nociceptive cells.
The delta-9 THC also triggers endocannabinoid system activity that boosts the body’s natural pain response mechanisms, promoting the release of endogenous pain-relieving chemicals into the body.
Endocannabinoid system activity triggered by delta-9 THC is related to lower inflammatory biomarkers that may help reduce pain related to inflammatory conditions.
Ultimately, each person is unique and that means that some people require higher doses of delta-9 THC to achieve the desired effect.
How many THC gummies a person should eat first depends on their goals with THC. The dose of delta-9 THC gummies needed to achieve those goals depends on several factors including:
Higher potencies of THC in delta-9 THC don’t always equate to a better experience or outcome. It’s always best to take small doses of THC and work your way up over time to higher doses as needed.
This will help you find what works best for your needs and prevent an overdose that could cause unwanted psychoactive effects and brain fog the next morning.
Especially in small doses, Delta-9-THC also has therapeutic value.
The THC Delta 9 cannabinoid offers:
That said, THC doesn’t affect everybody in the same way. Some people experience anxiety and paranoia as side effects of taking marijuana.
Delta-9 THC is a naturally occurring cannabinoid compound from hemp that is non-toxic, which means it won’t cause any harmful side effects.
However, delta-9 THC is a psychoactive substance to which individual responses vary. THC temporarily alters:
Taking too many delta-9 THC gummies may lead to some negative side effects that are similar to eating too many other types of cannabis edibles like brownies.
This can include increased heart rate, racing mind, confusion, dizziness, and dehydration. Some people may experience feelings of panic from taking too much delta-9 THC, but these are only temporary psychoactive side effects.
Taking too much delta-9 can make you feel a bit overwhelmed, so it’s always best to self-regulate your potency and know your dosing limits to avoid overdoing it.
The psychoactive effects of taking delta-9 THC are temporary and wear off with time.
It’s important to always drink plenty of water and plan your delta-9 THC experiences responsibly to avoid taking too much THC.
The legal future of compliant delta-9 products is uncertain. Sure, they are legal for now, and it’s hard to argue against them. Unlike delta-8 products, it’s impossible to make a case for delta-9 being synthetic since the substance doesn’t undergo any laboratory processing.
But the Farm Bill was meant to prevent the emergence of legal THC products. Therefore, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) could be motivated to change the law in the future.
In 2020, the DEA published an Interim Final Rule (IFR) revising the 2018 Farm Bill, so there is a precedent for updates. In theory, the DEA could change the THC percentage cap for a milligram cap.
However, unless the federal government banned full-spectrum hemp products, it would be impossible to make delta-9 totally illegal. THC is a naturally occurring substance in hemp – it will always be produced to some extent, even if only in minuscule concentrations.
The compliant delta-9 market is in it’s early stages, and that means “be careful with what you buy”. Any new industry comes with the risk of scammers – this is an even bigger issue with hemp-based products due to the absence of regulation.
Make sure you’re purchasing high-quality delta-9 products from a reputable source.. If you aren’t sure where to begin, I strongly recommend shopping locally (but that does not mean a convenient store, gas station or a smoke shop. Shop with a retailer who can educate you on the differences between cannabinoids, dosing, products, ingredients, traceability and lab-testing.
*Traceability is the ability to trace all processes from procurement of raw materials to production, consumption and disposal to clarify “when and where the product was produced by whom. At RESTART CBD we trace our products from seed to sale.
RESTART Delta-9 THC gummies are sold in 2.5 to 10mg potencies, which are standard doses for any infused edible.
For most people, 10mg is a fun experience that lasts for 2-3 hours, while for others it is too much. But if you’re reading this then you’re probably interested in taking more than 10mg of THC.
It’s generally recommended to increase your dose in small amounts. Try starting with 10mg-15mg of delta-9 THC and wait up an hour to see how they will affect you before consuming more.
Then only increase the dose 5mg at a time. This will help you gauge the effects of THC so you can find the right dose without taking too many THC gummies.
For serious pain issues, many people need to take 25mg-50mg of delta-9 THC to achieve adequate relief. And if you have a large body size or weight, you might need to take higher doses of THC to achieve the desired effects.
Overall, how many milligrams you need will depend on your circumstances, but generally 10mg-25mg of THC is considered a high-potency dose of gummies, while doses higher than 25mg are used more for the psychedelic properties.
For example, Joe Rogan, one of the world’s most famous podcasters, popularized the psychedelic experience of taking high potency delta-9 THC infused edibles while in a sensory deprivation float tank, which doesn’t sound like a bad idea – if you can handle it.
Never buy delta-9 products that you cannot find a certificate of analysis for. Third-party testing is the only way to know whether a hemp product is genuine. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) doesn’t regulate delta-9, so the onus is on the hemp companies to prove they are legit.
Independent laboratories examine delta-9 products, checking legality, potency and purity and send back a COA (certificate of analysis). A lab report for a delta-9 product will clarify how much THC is in a product and if the overall concentration is less than 0.3%. The report will also document whether any heavy metals or residual solvents were detected in the product.
Genuine companies selling delta-9 products welcome the transparency offered by third-party testing, while scammers detest it. Therefore, you should avoid any hemp company that does not provide lab reports, for whatever reason. There’s simply no justification for it.
Ensure that you know exactly how potent your delta-9 product is. Unlike delta-8 and delta-10 products which exist in a legal grey area, any delta-9 product with more than 0.3% THC is categorically illegal. Don’t fall on the wrong side of the law.
In terms of doses, edible products with 5 to 10mg of THC are perfect for newbies. However, if you are targeting veteran recreational users, look for gummies with 10 to 20mg of THC per serving.
Delta-9 products may also contain other cannabinoids and will definitely do so if made with full-spectrum hemp extracts. You must know how much non-psychoactive cannabidiol (CBD) is present. CBD has a neutralizing effect on THC – delta-9 products with large quantities of CBD will get you less high.
People are more concerned than ever before about the environment. With demand for vegan products in all industries going up, RESTART CBD will soon be offering vegan-friendly delta-9 edibles.
The best hemp retailers offer excellent customer support and have an in-depth understanding of their products. If you develop a good relationship with your local store, the chances of making a bad purchase reduce significantly. RESTART CBD offers a message feature on our site and well a free 411 Nurses hotline – great for when you need an urgent response.
Whether you are storing delta-9 edibles, vape pens, or oils, keep them in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight. Exposure to light – and specifically ultraviolet (UV) rays can degrade THC, making products less effective.
A cool storage location is extra important for delta-9 gummies, which may melt if left in high temperatures. Gummies won’t lose any potency if they melt, but the serving sizes will become unequal. If you live in a warm climate, perhaps store your gummies in a refrigerator.
Delta-9’s effects are dependent on the product type and the consumption method. On average, the high from a delta-9 vape pen lasts for around three hours, whereas the high from a delta-9 gummy can last for up to eight.
Other factors, such as tolerance, body weight, and whether you’re eating on an empty or full stomach can influence the duration of effects. Those with a high tolerance to THC typically experience shorter highs. Meanwhile, taking edibles on an empty stomach tends to get you stoned more quickly.
We advise against consuming too much delta-9. THC is stronger than delta-8 and can cause anxiety, paranoia, and other side effects in large doses.
Starting slow and waiting for long periods between servings is vital – especially with edibles. With gummies potentially taking up to 90 minutes to kick in, newbies often top up too fast and end up suffering from a bad trip because of it.
