Delta-9 THC

When it comes to the chemical constituents of the marijuana plant, the President, CEO, and Emperor for Life is always going to be Delta-9 THC. This powerful psychoactive cannabinoid is primarily responsible for the birth of an entire culture, not to mention a newly-blossoming industry.  Unfortunately, products containing Delta-9 are outlawed in many U.S. states and by the U.S. national government. Except for the products CBD American Shaman of Spring has to offer, that is.  We’ve got a delicious selection of totally legal Delta-9 treats for you to enjoy. If you don’t believe us, keep reading for some extra convincing.

What Is Delta-9 THC?

Delta-9 THC, or delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, is the primary psychoactive component in the marijuana plant. It’s also present in marijuana’s cousin, hemp, but in far smaller amounts, which is why smoking hemp will not get you high, but smoking marijuana most certainly does.  Although there are over 100 different cannabinoids present in both cannabis and hemp, THC — Delta-9 THC — remains the most well-known and the most notorious.  This reputation is mainly due to its psychoactive properties, but there are actually a number of other cannabinoids that have psychoactive properties and which can be found in both plants, such as Delta-8 THC and Delta-10 THC.

Delta-9 Effects

There are a number of different effects you might experience with Delta-9 THC. Some of the most notable include a feeling of euphoria, an uplifted mood, a sense of calm and relaxation, an increase in mental clarity, and an altering of your perception.  Delta-9 has also been noted for its potential therapeutic benefits. Some of those benefits include help for those with difficulty sleeping, improved mood, increased relaxation, boosted appetite, and relief from discomfort.  Although these effects are widely agreed upon as common to the Delta-9 experience, psychoactive experiences, in general, are subjective things. Delta-9 affects everybody differently in some way or another, and some people are more sensitive to it than others. It’s always best to start low and go slow when determining the proper dosage.

Delta-9 vs. Delta-8

Things have gotten to the point where those who live in a state where recreational cannabis is still illegal may be more familiar with Delta-8 THC than they are with Delta-9. If that’s the case for you, you’re probably wondering about the difference between the two.  The primary distinction is in potency when it comes to Delta-9 vs. Delta-8. Delta-8 is considered to have about 75% of the strength of Delta-9, which means that these Delta-9 products can pack a wallop, especially for the inexperienced.  While this may be an exciting prospect, it’s also cause for a bit of caution. As previously mentioned: start low and go slow.

Legal Delta-9 THC Products

You don’t need to be a cannabis culture aficionado to know that recreational use of the plant is outlawed in most states, but did you know that the only component that’s actually outlawed is Delta-9 THC?  That’s why hemp products, and hemp-derived cannabinoid products, containing less than .3% Delta-9 by dry weight are considered federally legal in the U.S.  So how is it possible that CBD American Shaman of Spring can offer our customers totally-legal Delta-9 THC chocolates, gummies, and caramels? It’s important to look at the phrasing of those stipulations regarding hemp products in the United States.  It reads that they must contain “less than .3% Delta-9 by dry weight,” which means that if the Delta-9 THC contained in the product constitutes less than .3% of the overall dry weight of the product, then it doesn’t matter if the amount of Delta-9 is enough to provide psychoactive effects.  The Delta-9 THC products offered at CBD American Shaman of Spring meet the standards set by the 2018 Farm Bill regarding Delta-9 THC in hemp-derived products while also containing enough Delta-9 in them for the aforementioned psychoactive effects you’re looking for. Thus, legal Delta-9 THC products.
