What are Delta 9 Gummies: All You Need to Know

Gummies are essentially candies. Do you remember running to the sweet shop in your childhood to buy those gummy bears that could just uplift your mood? Such is the effect of candies, which, with their varied flavors, can sweeten your taste and provide you with a sudden rush of happiness. With the CBD and THC market slowly opening its door to the confectionery industry, it was only a matter of time until THC gummies were introduced to the world.

THC, short for Tetrahydrocannabinol, is one cannabinoid among many found in the hemp and marijuana plants under the Cannabis genus. When we mention THC, it is usually referred to as Delta 9 THC (Δ9 THC) which is the psychoactive ingredient responsible for creating a sense of buzz or high that is usually associated with marijuana. 

Many brands today have infused products with Delta 9 THC and gummies are at the forefront of this revolution. Other products such as CBD oils, capsules, soft gels, and salves have also encapsulated the imagination of the consumers, but Delta 9 Gummies are slowly turning into the consumer favorite. But what are Delta 9 Gummies? Let’s find out.  

What are Delta 9 Gummies Exactly?

Like all other gummies, Delta 9 Gummies are sweet, chewable, and soft, but unlike a regular candy shop gummy, Delta 9 Gummies are infused with THC. It is one of the most popular cannabinoids, like cannabidiol (CBD) which is extracted from the hemp plant. What you need to keep in mind is that the THC levels present in the hemp plant are significantly lower than THC found in a marijuana plant. 

FAB CBD’s Delta 9 Gummies are Full Spectrum hemp-derived gummies that contain both CBD and THC from hemp. As per the Farm Bill 2018, the THC level in FAB CBD’s Delta 9 Gummies is less than 0.3%, totally compliant with federal law. Hence, if you’re not looking to go over the moon with your THC intake, FAB’s Delta 9 Gummies might be for you.  

Are Delta 9 Gummies Similar to THC Gummies?

Delta 9 is THC. To be more precise, it is the most common and used variant of THC. There are different variants of THC that are extracted or synthesized like Delta 8, Delta 10, and THCP, but when we refer to THC, it is usually Delta 9. So Delta 9 Gummies are exactly like THC gummies. But remember there’s a difference between gummies derived from hemp and marijuana.

Marijuana-based THC gummies or other products produce an intense sensation of a euphoric high and are currently not legal as per federal law. But the law varies from one state to the other. Each state has different rules about the recreational and medicinal use of marijuana and it is always advised to check the local laws before purchasing a product that contains THC in it.

How are Delta 9 Gummies Made?

Every brand uses a different trick or recipe to manufacture its Delta 9 Gummies. Some brands use pectin, which is a natural plant-based thickener along with natural flavors, sweeteners, and purified water that helps in creating a solid gummy for use. Another ingredient, gelatin, is also used to manufacture gummies, but since it is derived from animals, many brands hesitate to use it. Each brand either uses gelatin or pectin according to their own preference. If you’re looking to avoid animal-based products, you can always try FAB’s Delta 9 Gummies, which contain pectin and organic tapioca syrup. 

There are two popular ways of adding THC into gummies. You can either infuse or coat the gummy with THC, and brands do so as per their liking and manufacturing efficiencies. After the gummy is made, it is cut into different shapes and bottled into a small container which is easy to take anywhere you like.  

What’s the Best Way to Use Delta 9 Gummies?

Let us assume you are just starting your journey with THC or have tried different products like oils or soft gels but were looking for a more convenient way of taking THC. Delta 9 Gummies will provide you with that easier alternative. While taking products like oils or using gels, it sometimes becomes a hassle to measure the oil in the dropper or the application of gel gets too much or too less but with Delta 9 Gummies, you can simply use an entire gummy at one go or break it in half if you’re new to it.

Each Delta 9 gummy has a predetermined amount of THC and CBD that is specified on the container. So before using it, it’s always wise to check the bottle and then administer the dose accordingly. Most Delta 9 gummies come in small bottles or containers. So it becomes extremely easy for you to carry them with you to your office, parties, or day trips.  

Gummies are technically a food item. Like any other food, they travel through your digestive tract where the THC content is broken down and slowly released into the blood. Typically, if you use FAB CBD’s Delta 9 Gummies, you will feel the effects within 30-45 minutes. Start with half a gummy and wait for the effects to kick in before you decide to have more. They are not like THC oil products, which have a faster effect since they are taken sublingually under the tongue, allowing all the cannabinoids to enter your bloodstream quickly. Gummies work at their speed, but be careful not to take more than one at a time. 

How Many Delta 9 Gummies Should I Take?

It is always recommended to dictate your own pace when starting a new regimen. This is the case with Delta 9 Gummies as well. You can start with half a gummy and check the results. If you feel that you can increase your dose, do it slightly. Take another half and then sit back and relax. 

When Delta 9 Gummies become a part of your daily routine, your dose may increase to two gummies a day or one gummy during the day and another one at night. But do not take more than one gummy at once at any time of the day. If you have been using other CBD or THC products, you can add Delta 9 Gummies into your routine and see how it feels. For example, if you have used oil or soft gels in the morning, you could take a Delta 9 after work or closer to bedtime.

What Makes Delta 9 Gummies so Convenient?

Delta 9 Gummies are extremely convenient because they can be easily incorporated into your daily lifestyle. They are candies that are totally portable which you can easily take with you from point A to point B. Delta 9 gummies are hassle-free as they do not need a dropper like oils, and can be taken just like another candy without raising any eyebrows. 

Plus, they are delicious and come in many flavors. FAB CBD offers you Delta 9 Gummies in melon and guava flavors with a predetermined dose of THC. Each bottle of FAB’s Delta 9 Gummies includes 60 servings of hemp-derived, dispensary grade Delta-9 THC, and 5 mg of CBD. 

Do Delta 9 Gummies Have Side Effects?

There are some common side effects that people can experience when taking Delta 9 gummies. These are: 

  • Sleepiness
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Changes in Appetite
  • Changes in Weight
  • Dry Mouth
  • Fatigue

This is a big reminder and a precautionary step: If you are on any medication, please consult with your physician or primary doctor before starting any kind of THC regimen. Do not mix Delta 9 Gummies with your ongoing medicines unless you’ve checked with your physician.

What’s the Legal Status of Delta 9 Gummies?

The Farm Bill 2018 clearly mentions that if THC is derived from hemp plants and is within the accepted limit of 0.3% in any product, they will have federal clearance. But marijuana based products do not enjoy the same freedom under the federal law. Marijuana is a Schedule I drug under the Controlled Substances Act and is illegal in the eyes of the federal government. 

However, each state has its own laws regarding the use of medicinal and/or recreational marijuana-based CBD and THC products. So, when you buy hemp-based Delta 9 Gummies, you’ll be able to purchase them at brick and mortar stores or pharmacies, if that state allows.
