Delta 9 is quickly becoming a hot topic within the world of cannabis. Although state laws are constantly fluctuating across the United States, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that we at Nanocraft CBD, have been working hard to bring you a fully legal, high-quality formula. We’ve recently rolled out a new product for you to try: Delta 9 THC Gummies.
Before we start covering the how-to’s and why-you-shoulds for trying Delta 9 THC Gummies, we’ll first talk about what Delta 9 THC even is, how it’s extracted from the cannabis plant, and how this relates to the 2018 Farm Bill. Keep reading below to learn more about Delta 9 THC, what to expect when you try it for the first time, and what makes Nanocraft CBD’s Delta 9 THC Gummies different from our competitors.
DELTA 9: WHAT IS IT?
Delta 9 THC, formally known as delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), is one of 100+ known cannabinoids that have been discovered in the cannabis plant. Like cannabidiol (CBD) and a few other cannabinoids (i.e. cannabigerol (CBG), cannabinol (CBN)), Delta 9 THC was too referenced by name on the 2018 Farm Bill. In this instance, Delta 9 has continued to remain listed on the US Controlled Substance Act (CSA), while, on the other hand, hemp containing less than 0.3% THC has since then been removed from this list.
This particular cannabinoid has become quickly and extremely popular thanks to its relationship with marijuana and the psychoactive high users know about from smoking, vaping, or consuming THC. However, delta 9 THC in and of itself isn’t innately evil per se, at least not when naturally sourced from hemp and used in quantities below the federally legal limit of 0.3% THC.
Even though Delta 9 THC can be extracted from either the hemp plant or the marijuana plant, Delta 9 can be used in our products because it has been naturally derived from federally legal hemp plants, meeting that cutoff of being 0.3% THC or less. By formulating and blending this with other ingredients, we’ve ensured that our end gummy product still contains less than 0.3% THC. Thus, this product is fully federal legal to purchase in the US.
Unlike Delta 8 THC, which is thought to be less potent than its counterpart, Delta 9 is widely acknowledged as the THC compound recognized in and restricted by the 2018 Farm Bill. This means that Delta 9 THC is more closely monitored and regulated, allowing it to be a more transparent cannabinoid than delta 8 THC. But does that make trying delta 9 legal? Is there a gray area here still?
DELTA 9 AND THE 2018 FARM BILL
The final passing of the 2018 Farm Bill was a massive success for the cannabis industry as a whole, as it officially legalized specific types of the cannabis plant, especially Delta 9 THC. In a nutshell, Delta 9 THC wasn’t in a gray zone anymore. Unfortunately, the 2018 Farm Bill did criminalize the use of Delta 9 (in amounts greater than 0.3%) and left it up to each state to decide regulatory procedures and consequences.
Most states have continued to uphold the federal view, while a select few states decided to legalize marijuana use for those 21 years and up In just a few short years, many states have already revisited and changed their rulings and regulations against the use of Delta 9 THC, so it’s very unlikely that we could see a change in the definition of the marijuana plant within the Controlled Substances Act. Nonetheless, keep checking the status of Delta 9 THC in your state! Sometimes legalizations change or minor tweaks about cannabinoid regulations slip through the cracks.
IS DELTA 9 LEGAL?
Although we shared above that Delta 9 THC is pretty much out of the gray area of federal legality, there may still be tiny state-by-state gray areas. Let me explain.
Yes, it was recognized in the 2018 Farm Bill as being legal IF derived from hemp - if Delta 9 THC contains less than 0.3% THC content. But, do note that some states have their own laws regarding the sale and use of THC products, regardless of THC percentage, many of which allow for more significant or less significant concentrations of Delta 9 THC. We highly encourage you to look up your local and state regulations for Delta 9 purchase and consumption. This may help you understand what to expect on your THC navigation journey.
So, maybe you’re interested in trying Delta 9? Be sure to do your homework! It’s important to remember that when it comes to THC (and a few other cannabinoids), the rules and regulations are ever-changing: state by state especially. So it's never a bad idea to do a quick search of your state’s updated regulations before purchasing.
Keep in mind that even in states with less tight regulations, private employers can still forbid THC use and test their employees for it via a drug test. So if you’re in or about to start a job that requires drug testing, look for the THC-free label on your CBD products.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DELTA 9 AND CBD?
Cannabidiol, also known as CBD for short, is a compound derived from the cannabis plant. Similarly to CBD, Delta 9 THC can also be derived from the cannabis plant. Where they differ, though, however, lies in how they are extracted from the plant as well as whether they are psychoactive or non-psychoactive. In this case, Delta 9 THC can be psychoactive if it contains more than 0.3% THC. While CBD is non-psychoactive because it contains less than 0.3% THC.
WHY TRY DELTA 9 GUMMIES?
By following federal guidelines, our Delta 9 THC Gummies may allow you to try THC for the first time in a more controlled and legal way. They may offer a much more relaxed, calm, and natural experience than you might encounter with more potent THC formulas and products.
Delta 9 THC Gummies may also be an excellent option for anyone who’s used our broad-spectrum CBD formulas in the past and maybe hasn’t experienced their desired results just yet. Especially if you’ve tried our CBD Night Formula but still might have had trouble falling asleep or staying asleep at night. Nonetheless, by adding Delta 9 THC Gummies to your nightly routine, you might find that when combined with CBD, it may provide the extra support you need to get a restful night's sleep. Just a thought!
A SMALL DOSE OF DELTA 9 GOES A LONG WAY
At this point, you might be wondering why you should give Delta 9 THC Gummies a try. The truth is, Delta 9 THC may be a lot more powerful than CBD, and a little bit really does go a long way. In order to give you the highest legal amount of Delta 9 THC possible, we have crafted it as a distillate, so it is extremely concentrated.
It’s important to remember that you may still feel a small “high” when you try Delta 9 THC Gummies, since they do contain very low levels of THC, they could possibly exert a “buzz” similarly to Delta 8 THC.
DELTA 9: FINAL THOUGHTS
THC comes in many forms, including Delta 8 THC or Delta 9 THC. The more extractions that occur and research that is performed, we learn about new strains of cannabinoids every day. Talk about an ever-growing field! This being said, such slight differences such as this, are enough to vary their potency and effects. Furthermore, thanks to THC’s changing stereotypes, trying Delta 9 THC Gummies for the first time doesn’t seem as scary and can absolutely be a positive experience!
Hopefully, you’ve learned a thing or two about Delta 9 and feel confident in determining whether or not using delta 9 THC products are the right fit for you and your health. Our brand new Delta 9 THC Gummies formula has less than the federally legal amount of THC present (0.3%). That’s right, Nanocraft CBD is all about crafting high quality, high potency, and
broad-spectrum Delta 9 THC Gummies.
