FAQs

Delta 9 THC is the main chemical compound that gives cannabis its famous psychoactive properties. It’s the only known compound of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, which means it can be quite powerful! Its history dates back thousands of years, with ancient civilizations using cannabis for various medicinal and spiritual practices. In modern times, THC is known for providing both recreational enjoyment and significant therapeutic benefits.

When taken correctly, Delta-9 interacts with our brain receptors to give us a number of amazing effects. Studies suggest that it has the potential to really improve quality of life when used responsibly. So if you’re looking for something to help you feel better naturally, it could well be worth considering what benefits this incredible compound could bring you.

Extraction & Production

Delta-9 THC is meticulously extracted from the cannabis plant using various methods. The most common is CO2 extraction, which ensures a pure and clean product. While synthesized versions exist, naturally derived THC, as offered by The Hemp Doctor, ensures you’re getting a product closest to its original plant form, promising both purity and efficacy.

Delta 9 THC has more to offer beyond just an enjoyable recreational experience — it has a variety of other benefits too! Early research has suggested that delta-9 helps improve sleep quality, physical discomfort, mood, and balance through its interactions with the body’s endocannabinoid system. It’s also been associated with helping to reduce stress and anxiety. Additionally, the presence of other cannabinoids like CBD and CBN may help to enhance its effects.

Understanding Delta 9 THC legality can be tricky, especially since laws vary from state to state. Delta 9 THC was only federally legalized with the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill. Because of this new bill, products that contained less than 0.3% THC are considered federally legal as long as that product was produced from hemp and not marijuana. Of course, you should always check your local and state laws before consuming D9 to ensure you are following all applicable legal guidelines!

The 2018 Farm Bill and its Implications

A landmark moment in the history of cannabis and its derivatives in the United States was the signing of the 2018 Farm Bill. This legislation played a transformative role in how hemp-derived products, including some with THC, are viewed from a legal perspective.

The 2018 Farm Bill federally legalized the cultivation and sale of hemp and hemp-derived products. One of the crucial distinctions made in this bill is the differentiation between hemp and marijuana. Both are strains of the Cannabis sativa plant, but while marijuana can contain high levels of THC, hemp contains only trace amounts.

As per the guidelines outlined in the bill, for a product to be deemed federally legal, it must contain no more than 0.3% THC and be derived from hemp. This minute amount of THC is generally considered insufficient to produce any psychoactive effects.

State-Specific Regulations

While the 2018 Farm Bill set a federal precedent, individual states retain the autonomy to craft their cannabis policies. Even if a product meets the federal criteria, state-specific laws can further regulate or outright prohibit its use.

Several states have embraced both recreational and medicinal cannabis use, decriminalizing or legalizing THC entirely. In contrast, others remain more conservative in their stance. As a result, the landscape of THC legality is patchy across the nation.

Best practice is to always check your local and state laws before consuming D9 to ensure you are following all applicable legal guidelines! 

Yes, THC and its metabolites can be detected in urine, blood, and hair samples. The duration it remains detectable varies based on factors like frequency of use, metabolism, and the type of test administered.

The time it takes delta-9 THC to take effect varies greatly depending on individual biochemistry, the method of administration, and even the product being used. Generally, Delta-9 THC will begin working within minutes when smoked or vaped, while edibles, like our delta 9 gummies, can take up to two hours or more to start producing their effects. So if you’re looking for a speedy onset of Delta 9 THC’s effects, smoking or vaping are typically your best bet. Learn more in our blog, The Effects of Delta 9 THC

The duration of effects can vary based on the consumption method, individual metabolism, and dosage. Typically, effects can be felt within minutes and last 2-3 hours when smoked or vaped. Edibles take longer to kick in (30 minutes to 2 hours) but can last several hours.

One of the fascinating aspects of Delta-9 THC (and cannabinoids in general) is how individualized its effects can be. Two people might consume the same product in the same quantity and have distinctly different experiences. This disparity is primarily due to individual biochemistry. Factors such as metabolism, body weight, tolerance, genetic factors, and even the current state of one’s endocannabinoid system can all influence how Delta-9 THC manifests its effects.

Embarking on the Delta-9 THC journey requires both knowledge and patience. Especially if you’re new to the world of THC or trying a new product, the golden rule is to start low and go slow. Give your body ample time to react before deciding to consume more. By understanding the variables at play, you can tailor your experience to suit your desires and needs. Remember, it’s not just about reaching the destination but also about savoring the journey.

Some users might experience dry mouth, red eyes, increased heart rate, paranoia, or anxiety. It’s essential to start with a low dose, especially if you’re a beginner, to mitigate potential adverse effects.

While there have been no recorded fatal overdoses from THC, consuming an excessive amount can lead to an uncomfortable experience, including extreme paranoia, nausea, and disorientation. It’s always recommended to consume responsibly.

THC interacts with the brain’s endocannabinoid system, specifically binding to CB1 receptors, affecting mood, perception, coordination, and cognitive functions. This interaction is what results in the characteristic “high.”

While cannabis is generally considered less addictive than substances like nicotine or opioids, prolonged heavy use can lead to a form of dependency in some individuals. This can result in withdrawal symptoms when trying to quit.

Yes, many jurisdictions have approved the medical use of THC for conditions such as chronic pain, nausea, glaucoma, and more. However, it’s essential to consult with a healthcare professional for therapeutic applications.

It can be consumed in various ways, including smoking Delta-9 flower, vaping THC oil, ingesting edibles, or applying topical products. The method of consumption can influence the onset and duration of effects.

Delta 9 THC vs CBD

If you’ve heard of Delta 9 THC and CBD, you’re likely a bit confused about the differences between them. Delta-9 THC is a type of cannabis compound found in both marijuana and hemp that is known for its psychoactive properties, meaning it can make users feel “high”. On the other hand, CBD (or cannabidiol) comes from the same plant but doesn’t have the same mind altering effects as D9. So while D9 can give you a feeling of euphoria, CBD works more like a supplement to help balance out your overall health.

What’s the difference between Delta-8 vs. Delta-9 THC?

Both are psychoactive cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, but Delta-8 THC is often described as having a milder and clearer high than Delta-9 THC. Delta-8 is also found in smaller quantities in the cannabis plant compared to Delta-9.

How does Delta-9 THC Work?

Delta-9 THC is best known for its psychoactive effects, but it also has other benefits to your body. This natural active component of marijuana produces changes in the brain by mimicking and binding with certain neurotransmitters, like anandamide and serotonin. The ability of Δ9 THC to bind to these chemicals affects the way brain cells communicate with one another and causes altered sensory perceptions and varying levels of relaxation and euphoria. By interacting with the inner workings of your brain, hemp-derived delta-9 THC affects appetite, mood, coordination and movement, concentration, memories and even pain sensations. As effects can vary from session to session based on dosage and preferences, understanding how D9 THC works is essential for having a safe yet enjoyable experience.

Effects of Delta-9 on the body

It’s the most abundant cannabinoid in cannabis, and it’s the one known to get you high, but what exactly are the effects of Delta-9 THC? There are many ways in which the cannabinoid is reported to affect users, and results may vary from person to person or by cannabis strain. In general, you can expect several common effects.

Euphoria  

One of the most desirable effects of Delta-9 is the burst of euphoria it can provide. Users often report an uplifted mood, a sense of happiness, and a propensity for laughter when enjoying this cannabinoid.

Relaxation

Another fan-favorite effect of Delta-9 is its reported ability to help you relax, unwind, and destress. This effect is not just a mental one but a physical one, too. Delta-9 has the potential to relieve stiffness and soreness and make you feel more comfortable. 

Altered Perception

There are a few ways in which Delta-9 is reported to alter your perception. You may experience time, tactile sensation, sight and sound, and more in a way that’s distinctly different from your everyday experience when you are under the effects of Delta-9. You may also notice a change in or greater awareness of your thought processes.

Increased Appetite

The “munchies” are no urban myth. Delta-9 is believed to interact with the part of your brain responsible for hunger signals and food enjoyment. That means you may not only have an increased appetite while using Delta-9, but you may also find greater pleasure in eating your favorite foods. 

Potential Therapeutic Effects

Many people enjoy Delta-9 strictly recreationally, but there’s another side to the cannabinoid as well. It may provide a variety of therapeutic effects, such as relief from discomfort, mood boost, help with sleep issues and stomach discomfort, and more.

Methods of Administration: A Spectrum of Experiences

  • Smoking and Vaping: As mentioned, these methods typically offer the fastest onset. When Delta-9 THC is inhaled, it enters the bloodstream directly through the lungs’ alveoli. This direct route lets users feel effects almost instantaneously, often within a few minutes.
  • Edibles: Consumables like gummies, brownies, or drinks have a more extended onset because they must first navigate the digestive system. Once ingested, the Delta-9 THC undergoes a transformation in the liver before entering the bloodstream. This process delays the onset and can intensify and prolong effects as the liver converts THC into a more potent form known as 11-hydroxy-THC.
  • Tinctures and Sublinguals: These are typically liquids placed under the tongue. They can offer a middle ground in terms of onset, often taking effect in 15-45 minutes. The membranes under the tongue allow for rapid absorption directly into the bloodstream.
  • Topicals: Creams, balms, and lotions infused with Delta-9 THC are designed for localized relief. They don’t produce the traditional “high,” but they can be effective for pain, inflammation, or skin conditions. The onset is relatively quick, typically within minutes, but varies based on the product’s formulation and the skin’s permeability.

Beyond administration methods, the specific Delta-9 products you choose can influence onset. Factors like potency, quality, other ingredients (in the case of edibles), and even the terpene profile can play a role in how quickly and intensely you’ll feel effects.
