What’s Happening in New York Now That Cannabis is Legal?

“Free samples! Edibles! Check it out,” the young entrepreneur who goes by the moniker “AI” yells in between tokes on a joint slathered with budder. Then, she adds, “I’m high as f*ck!”

This is a Friday night in Washington Square Park, a key youth gathering point in New York City’s Greenwich Village, and business is brisk.

‘Open Market’ in Washington Square

AI says her initials stand for An Inspiration, and her business, registered in New York state last year, is Canaremedy — offering its own line of infused edibles, topicals and oils. At the table she has set up, she is also offering little baggies of bud, and pre-rolled joints.

Those inquiring about free samples are encouraged to help themselves to a little paper cup of AI’s “weed juice” — AI’s own concoction featuring a THC tincture. For the other products, money is exchanged, but technically, AI says she is accepting donations for free samples, rather than making sales.  

It may seem a semantic distinction, but the since the passage of New York’s Marijuana Taxation & Regulation ACT (MRTA) in March, there is an “open market” in the state. Even if authorities officially do not view it that way, it is clear that the police are taking a hands-off approach. Several other tables peddling similar wares are set up nearby. The cops clustered around the square’s iconic arch, some 50 yards away, do not interfere. And this scene has been unfolding every night all summer long, and now into early fall.

AI’s goal is to eventually get a storefront, and a share of the licensed market. She registered the Canaremedy brand in 2020, in anticipation of legalization. Born in Newark and once homeless on the streets of New York, she’s now an East Village resident. 

She explains that she got into developing her own cannabis products because her sister is suffering from multiple sclerosis, and her ailing mother suffered from a skin condition. “I felt the need to help my family — both with financial support and medicine.” Her first creation was a CBD “body butter” that aided her mother’s condition.  

“My mission is to create a business to help people and the community — mind, body and soul.” And also, she adds, to finance her ambitions as a writer, rapper, artist and musician. She is currently working on a semi-autobiographical book, Love A Lesbian.

Local Neighborhood Business

“Trademark Rob” has over the past several weeks maintained a similar table, this one on the sidewalk of Clinton Street on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. “I was born and raised on Clinton Street,” he says proudly as he breaks up bud to roll a joint on the curbside. “Clinton is on my birth certificate.”  

The baseball cap he wears backwards, New York style, shows the official logo of the city, in the official font — “NYC.” But it is adorned with a cannabis leaf image and the letters below read “New York Cannabis.”

Trademark launched his tongue-in-cheek brand a year ago as an apparel line, with the anticipation of cannabis going legal in New York state. After months of selling hoodies, caps and t-shirts emblazoned with the New York Cannabis logo from a storefront at 40 Clinton, on April 1 (the day after MRTA was signed) he started offering cannabis officially, as a promotional give away with an apparel sale. He set up the sidewalk stand in September, when the storefront was temporarily closed for renovations.

At the stand, Trademark and his crew offer a sealed baggie of bud (3.5 grams) with a purchase of $100 worth of merchandise. “We call that an eighth on the street,” Trademark says wryly.

Waiting to get back into the storefront after the landlord completes renovation, Trademark says being on street has increased awareness and visibility. “People were thinking we were just an apparel store.”

There has been no problem with law enforcement whatsoever, according to Trademark. He’s openly sold bud and edibles from his table. “The cops are more concerned with vehicles parked in the bike lane,” he quips.  

“It all unfolded organically for me,” Trademark says. “We’ll apply for a retail license when it’s available. We want to offer educational courses for those new to the cannabis biz, and a members-only consumption lounge. Maybe a smoke and paint, instead of a sip-and-paint.” 

A list of available varieties displayed at the table names San Fernando Valley OG, Glookies (Gorilla Glue X Girl Scout Cookies), Cake Batter, Kasmeir, East Coast Sour Diesel and Fruity Pebbles.  

Trademark says all the product is New York state indoor, and much of it grown within the city. He says whole buildings in the city are now dedicated to cannabis cultivation, exploiting the six plants per adult resident allowed under MRTA. Although technically, this provision does not take effect for several months.

Delayed Licensing Process

This same strategy of conforming to the letter of the law by the narrowest of margins is also being pursued by the city’s CBD stores, which are openly selling very potent Delta-8 products. Since passage of the 2018 U.S. Farm Bill, hemp-derived Delta-8 THC has been in a legal grayzone, as the law only refers to Delta-9 THC as a prohibited cannabinoid.

Mayor Bill de Blasio, for two years now, has instructed the NYPD to not make arrests for small cannabis offenses, and New York City’s district attorneys are no longer prosecuting such cases. However, this applies to use and possession rather than sale. And while arrests dropped dramatically under this policy, as recently as mere weeks before the passage of MRTA, there were still instances of brutal arrests for cannabis offenses. 

Under MRTA, public use and possession by those over 21 are now legal, within the permitted limits: three ounces of bud or 24 grams of concentrate. But unlicensed cannabis sale is another matter and it not clear if the law treats the exchange of unlicensed cannabis from one hand to another any differently if no money is exchanged. The current laissez-faire atmosphere in the Big Apple appears to be a matter of policy rather than law.

Six months after the passage of MRTA, state authorities are only now starting the process of crafting the licensing and regulation structure for commercial cultivation, processing and sale. The first meeting of the new Cannabis Control Board was finally held on Oct. 5, in a virtual format, NewYorkUpstate reports. Political chaos in New York state (then-governor Andrew Cuomo stepped down under cloud of scandal five months after signing MRTA) contributed to delays in appointment of the five-member board. 

“The MRTA was signed into law on March 31. But we were not able to begin the work of establishing New York’s cannabis market until Sept. 22, when the full cannabis control board was appointed. As such, there was a six-month delay to make up,” Christopher Alexander, executive director of the Office of Cannabis Management, told the board as the meeting opened, according to LoHud.  

And the only immediate changes to come out of this first meeting concerned the state’s very limited medical marijuana program. Board members agreed to permanently waive the $50 registration fee for patients and caregivers and to make actual herbaceous cannabis an approved form of medical marijuana product.

Empire State Canna-Boom?

A coming cannabis boom was hyped by Gov. Kathy Hochul at the Business Council of New York State’s annual meeting on Sept. 24. “We do want to go big or go home, and I want to help you get there,” she said. “I need you to survive because you’re the identity of New York that people create jobs and opportunities. You are who we are as New Yorkers. Your success means the success of this entire state,” Hochul affirmed.

“So count me in as an ally — someone who’s going to be there for you, who will fight for you to make sure that we do not lose out to any competition, whether it’s in the space of cannabis, where I believe there’s thousands and thousands of jobs and new industries, to be created.”

The Business Council meeting, held “in real life” at Rockefeller Center’s posh Rainbow Room, brought out several bigwigs of finance, industry and celebrity, including Bronx native and retired NFL player Ruben Lindo, who is now CEO of Phoenix Nutraceutical and founder of Buffalo-based Blak Mar Farms. Lindo applauded the state’s commitment to award cannabis business licenses to neighborhoods impacted by cannabis prohibition under MRTA’s social equity provisions. But he urged that those who have already been in the industry deserve more than a carved-out allocation of permits, according to MarketWatch.

“It’s about giving the rightful ownership of an industry to people who bore the brunt of incarceration,” Lindo said. “We operated in the space at risk of life and liberty.”

Many of these legacy operators are already taking advantage of the post-MRTA euphoria and bureaucratic limbo to boogie in public. It remains to be seen whether this thriving informal sector will survive once the big boys start getting state licenses.

Trying Delta-8 Gummies for the First Time? Here’s Everything You Need To Know

In the past year, it’s quite surprising how suddenly Delta-8 THC products have exploded onto the scene, revolutionizing the hemp and cannabis market for those looking to catch a high-quality buzz.

Since it’s a relatively new discovery, many people haven’t tried Delta-8 THC products yet, and still aren’t aware of how it differs from Delta-9 THC or it’s other practical benefits.

Delta-8 THC is an “alternative cannabinoid” (an industry term that describes a compound other than traditional THC or CBD) that gives you a unique buzz that you simply can’t find anywhere else. It lets you relax and unwind but also provides you with the fun, psychoactive experience that you look for when you take regular THC.

For all those total Delta-8 beginners (and those who are more in the know), here’s a crash-course to bring you up to speed with this fantastic hemp-derived cannabinoid.  

  1. Delta-8 THC is naturally present in both hemp and marijuana in varying amounts. It’s a complimentary molecule to the more famous Delta-9 THC that you’re used to.
  2. Delta-8 THC is extracted commercially from legal hemp flower to create a high-purity isolate that is then used to create vapes, gummies, enhanced flower, tinctures and more.
  3. Delta-8 THC and its products are psychoactive; its effects are typically described as less intense than a Delta-9 high and causes a body-focused buzz instead of adversely affecting the mind. 
  4. Delta-8 THC is a cannabinoid that directly interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system. It works only with CB1 receptors, affecting processes related to the brain and nervous system.

Which Cannabis Cannabinoids Will Survive Into the Future?

There are a ton of new cannabis products coming out all the time now, some with more relevance and staying power than others. Which will really survive this stage and go into the next? It’s hard to say. Some cannabis discoveries have caught on better than others. Which cannabinoids will survive the current industry, any new decriminalization or legalizations that might occur, and prosper into the future? This still remains to be seen.

Is delta-8 one of the cannabis cannabinoids that will make it into the future? Of all the alternate cannabinoids on the market, delta-8 is the most popular, and most likely to make it big. We’re ahead of the game with tons of delta-8 THC products and deals for you to look into. But delta-8 isn’t alone in the game, other hemp-derived THC products, such as delta-10 THCTHCVTHCO, THC-PHHC are also selling very well and might survive into the future.

Cannabis cannabinoids

Everyone knows about delta-9 THC. This is the main psychoactive compound of the cannabis plant, and the part that makes a person feel euphoric. THC was first isolated in 1964 by Raphael Mechoulam, but it was first found by Roger Adams in the early 40’s, around the time that CBD was isolated. CBN was the first cannabinoid to be isolated, in an attempt to find the ‘intoxicating factor’ of cannabis, which it didn’t end up being. CBN was discovered by Thomas Easterfield at the end of the 1800’s.

Everyone also knows about CBD at this point, the other major cannabinoid of the cannabis plant, which is the primary cannabinoid of the low-THC hemp plants. Significantly less CBD is found in high-THC marijuana plants, and vice versa. CBD was discovered in 1940 by Roger Adams, although Alexander Todd discovered it at about the same time in the UK, making for dueling research and discoveries for several years.

The whole reason Roger Adams investigated cannabis at all, was at the behest of the US government. The US government, often through the military and CIA, has done all kinds of drug research and testing, from the Edgewood Arsenal Experiments, where THC-O-Acetate was given to military personnel, to MDMA tests during the Cold War era for use as psychological warfare. There are even various unconfirmed reports of unleashing chemicals like LSD in public places. That compounds like THC-O-Acetate and LSD were found on the streets at the time of such testing even indicates that street use might have been started by these organizations in an attempt to study the compounds further.

cannabis plant

This, of course, is supposition on my part, but in the 1940’s, the government did sponsor research into cannabis, with a main factor being the isolation of the intoxicating agent. In so doing this, and in the follow-up research when THC was isolated, several different cannabinoids were found, including other delta THC’s, like delta-8, delta-7, and delta-6, some naturally occurring, and some entirely synthetic. Other compounds were found around this time including CBL, CBC, and HHC.

Most of what has been mentioned are cannabinoids, but what exists in the actual cannabis plant, before decarboxylation, oxidation, or any other chemical process that changes the chemical structure, are phytocannabinoids. THCA and CBDA are the precursor acids to CBD and THC, and a range of other cannabinoids. These cannabinoid acids also have tons of medical benefits, but are different from their cannabinoid counterparts. THCA, for example, is not psychoactive, and does not cause the same response as its decarboxylated version, delta-9 THC.

Research into the cannabis plant has turned up tons of naturally occurring cananbinoids like delta-8 THC, THCV, CBC, CBG, and 11-hydroxy-THC, what delta-9 becomes after being ingested. There are also a range of purely synthetic compounds that can’t be found in nature. These include delta-10 THC, delta-7 THC, THC-O-Acetate, and HU 580.

How popular are these alternate cannabis cannabinoids?

This is an interesting question, and one without a formal answer, as there isn’t much data out on buying patterns for these products. This might be partly because this is an unregulated market, and a relatively new one, where that kind of information has not been collected as of yet. The best indication for establishing interest, come from individual sales statistics, mentions and conversations online, and overall population know-how about these compounds. Different researchers might turn up different opinions, since even these metrics involve personal research methods, and subjective analysis.

If a person is to blindly believe the marketing hype of an industry, delta-8 is about the biggest thing out there. But marketing campaigns are rarely real life, and looking at real metrics, (and over a period of time), is the better way of establishing where something actually fits into the grand scheme. Maybe delta-8 has raised in popularity, but if it has, will this be a passing fancy, to disappear in a year from now? And how big is this popularity to begin with?

It’s always good to remember that while it’s great to take the plant apart and find new ways to access different aspects of it, we never lose the original cannabis plant itself, which has been doing just fine keeping people happy for millennia. Whether these compounds really become stable market representatives or not, will likely do little to effect a worldwide cannabis industry that has propelled itself along, even under worldwide prohibition. This means, regardless of which currently out cannabis cannabinoids make it to the future, we’ll always have our standby.

Sales statistics – there aren’t any

When it comes to sales, I don’t see any massive breakthrough reports about any of these compounds. Delta-8 THC gets the most press, but mainly only within the world of weed itself, and as a niche part of the cannabis market. For the most part, even delta-8 goes unnoticed in terms of sales statistics. Even in the articles where delta-8 is mentioned as a growing fad, none of them can offer any backup for this. In fact, an article like this one in Fortune Magazine, show this well. The article refers to delta-8 as the “fastest-growing segment of the market for hemp chemicals for roughly the last year.”

This makes it sound pretty big, right? But then it goes on to state that this happened only after “wholesale CBD prices plummeted amid oversupply and other issues.” This merely implies that with CBD leveling off (or possibly losing value), that delta-8 has taken its place as the top hemp chemical product. Even the comparison is weak, and shows a changing fad, from CBD to delta-8, with the inability to keep that trajectory long-term. Considering delta-8 isn’t likely to produce anything substantially new for users, the expectation of it getting to the point where it could threaten the longstanding regular cannabis industry, is sort of short-sighted.

One of the biggest indicators, which the authors of the Fortune article seemed to gloss over, is that if cannabis cannabinoids like delta-8 THC follow in the footsteps of CBD, they’re not going to make it into the future, especially if they don’t hit the same volume before leveling off. That CBD has lost momentum, is an indication that delta-8 is just a passing fancy too. 2021 numbers for CBD sales (when released) might help us understand how cannabis cannabinoids like delta-8 THC might fair in the future, better.

Mentions and conversations

Without sales statistics, one of the other ways to see how big something is, is simply in how much its mentioned and talked about. The internet is a huge place, so finding mentions of a subject is never that hard. But the questions become, how often is it mentioned, where is it mentioned, and what is being said? When it comes to delta-8 THC, the most popular of the alternate cannabis compounds, there are plenty of mentions online. Many of these mentions come from large scale publications that are non-cannabis related. Most mentions are of the fear variety, talking about the possible detriments, or mentioning new regulatory measures to keep it out. As an untaxed item with any amount of popularity, this makes sense. Delta-8 THC is undesirable for governments that can’t tax it.

But the general conversation is limited. Apart from what seem like pre-emptive fear-marketing campaigns, people aren’t talking about it all over the place. There aren’t a huge number of questions being asked, or reviews being given. Even a site like reddit, has some, but not too much. When I changed my search results to just the last month, only one reddit mention came up, and as a news article about issued warnings. A search for ‘Acapulco Gold’ turned up several mentions on Reddit just from the last month. And that says a lot. Since delta-8 proposes an issue to the government as an unregulated and untaxed product, the issues of legality and regulation are among the bigger talking points, when it does show up on-line.

Realistically, if the stuff is sitting on store shelves, at least some people are bound to buy it. Most of what’s written, however, seems like a reaction to the possibility of an out-of-control market, more than the reaction to an actually out-of-control market. This is also backed up by very few arrests being made, or government intervention beyond these articles.

cannabinoids

Do people know about it?

I find this question to be the most interesting one. It’s possible to get the wrong idea by something being seen online. It’s easy to forget how big the internet is, and how much is necessary to show real engagement with an industry or product. Marketers can fill internet pages with content that isn’t backed up by anything, and governments can put out campaigns in an effort to stop something before it starts. Neither has to indicate mass appeal, though they can be a factor in it. So, one of the best ways of assessing whether something has an influence, is to see if its actively influencing people. And this is where I see the biggest issue.

The vast majority of people have no idea what delta-8 THC is. Had I not been a writer in the cannabis industry, I probably wouldn’t know about it either. I know a lot of weed smokers, and somehow, not a single one has heard of this compound. First off, it’s only a US product that hasn’t gained popularity anywhere else, and that means we’re only looking at a US audience. On top of that, cannabis – as stated – is a stable industry, and its been there for a while. Even now it exists as bigger black markets than legal ones, which means, we already have a version we can use. It’s not like delta-8 is the answer to not being able to get any weed at all. We can all get it, and this will always be a roadblock to delta-8 sales.

Having said all this, I will point out one countering factor. Governments are making specific legislation to rule out delta-8 THC, even with other legalizations. This could indicate that sales are high enough to cause worry and necessitate these laws. But, it could also be a reactionary measure meant to stifle a possible industry, whether it would actually meet the potential indicated, or not. That it would be singled out by governments does say something for its existence, and ability for at least some popularity. However, even this doesn’t indicate that it’ll stick around.

Cannabinoids Future – Conclusion

None of this article really answers the question of what can be expected for all cannabis cannabinoids in the future. However, the most useful point comes from the fact that delta-8 seems to be following in the footsteps of CBD, which itself has been leveling off after a few years of being the golden product. If this is any indication, none of these products will last it out, not even delta-8 THC. In the end, there realistically isn’t a great reason for it. Does this mean it doesn’t have good or alternate benefits? No, it doesn’t mean that. But it’s also quite possible that the slightly lesser high and clearer head are more important  for medical patients, and might not be as desirable by those looking for a full effect. On top of that, reports of causing less anxiety have never been totally confirmed meaning it might not provide these effects the way we read about them.

Though this doesn’t mean something can’t catch on further, my best bet is that none of the newly released, bottom-feeding (let’s be honest) attempts to capture a greater part of the industry, will work. Alternate cannabis cannabinoids might be fun to try, but if they don’t provide a better answer, and if they come at a higher price, they’re likely to be dropped fast and never see the future. Luckily for us though, we’ll always have our regular weed. And if the last few years is any indication, our black markets for that aren’t going anywhere.

Smoking Like a Boss – Luxurious Delta-8 THC Cigars

You’re chic, you’re fashionable, you’ve got it going on. You don’t want to be a millennial sucking on a vape, and you’re not interested in picking through gummies or finding the perfect THC chocolate bar. You want something sophisticated. You want something that screams ‘luxury’. Well, my friends, these delta-8 THC cigars are exactly what you’re looking for, to smoke in the utmost of style.

Delta-8 products are wildly gaining popularity all over the US, with offerings like delta-8 THC cigars showing what a super-high-end smoking experience looks like. However, not everyone likes cigars, and that’s why it’s great there are so many delta-8 products to choose from. In fact, go ahead and take a look at our awesome Delta-8 THC deals to find the perfect products to fit your lifestyle. But delta-8 isn’t alone in the game, other hemp-derived THC products, such as delta-10 THCTHCVTHCOTHC-PHHC are also selling very well…

What is a cannabis cigar?

A cannabis cigar is not like a standard cigar, that’s the first thing to know. A standard cigar is a tobacco product, and cannabis cigars actually do not contain tobacco. They are, instead, a form of smokable cannabis that uses several different parts of the cannabis plant. These cigars can be made from high-THC marijuana plants, or low-THC hemp plants, either way, the production process is the same. These cigars go by different names, including, Thai sticks, cannagars, and canna cigars.

Very high-grade cannabis flowers are ground and packed together. Then, the matter is rolled in resin or cannabis oil to act as glue, before being wrapped in cannabis leaves, or hemp wraps. Some companies will go a step beyond this even, applying resin or oil and then rolling the cigar in kief for an added kick. Pretty intense, huh?

If it sounds like smoking cannabis cigars might burn a hole in your pocketbook, this might indeed be the case, but it certainly doesn’t have to be. The highest grade cannagars can run as high as $500, or even a $1000+, but like with almost any kind of product, this does not rule out more affordable options. And plenty of the less cash-intense products still offer the user a high level of quality, as is generally desired by the standard cigar smoker.

delta-8 THC cigars

Some people like to smoke cigars to celebrate special occasions, like a marriage, or a graduation. Others smoke more regularly, kicking up their legs in an armchair as they puff, or taking drags behind a big heavy, wooden desk in a business meeting (understandably this image is less likely with laws against smoking indoors, but it sure passed muster a few decades ago, and is still quite relevant in plenty of situations today).

What is delta-8 THC, and why use it for cigars?

In short, delta-8 THC is an alternate form of THC to delta-9, which is the standard THC associated with marijuana that gets a person high. Though they share the same chemical formula, and offer nearly identical medical benefits, there are a few differences between the two. First, delta-8 THC is associated with less psychoactive high, about 2/3 that of delta-9. It is also not associated with producing the same kind of anxiety in users as delta-9, but it is associated with producing a milder high which leaves the user feeling more energetic, with less couch locking effect. All of these attributes make delta-8 THC preferable to many recreational and medical users.

While delta-8 THC does not seem to be legal, it has managed to carve itself out a place in what is considered legal gray area, which, whether this is true or not, has allowed for a market. And there doesn’t seem to be much stopping it on a larger level, though individual states have passed laws to keep it from being sold. The reason given for this is the fact that delta-8 THC, though occurring naturally, requires human processing help to produce enough to use for products, thus making it eligible for illegality due to the Federal Analogue Act.

This, of course, doesn’t make delta-8 THC bad or dangerous, but means that without regulation, its hard for the buyer to be sure of the safety of their product. For this reason, buyers should stick to sellers they are familiar with and trust if they are worried about the quality of the product being bought. Nevertheless, there is an array of great delta-8 THC cigars on the market for interested consumers to try. Since delta-8 has not been ruled out fully to the point of not being able to buy and sell products, and because of the legal gray area it seems to sit in, it also means delta-8 THC cigars can be mailed throughout the US, whereas delta-9 products generally cannot. This makes them more nationally accessible than other high-THC cigars.

Conclusion

Delta-8 THC cigars are not for everyone. But they certainly scratch the itch of a certain population. For high-class smokers who don’t want to give up the cigar experience, and are more interested in cannabis than tobacco, these cigars represent the luxury, class, and style that cigars are known for. Plus, they offer the perfect delta-8 THC buzz for smokers who want a different option from delta-9, but still want a THC experience.

‘3x Stronger’ Than THC? The Latest Cannabinoid THC-O Arrives

Although his Higher Life dispensary is located in the midwestern U.S. state of Indiana, where adult-use cannabis is still illegal, owner Brandon Howard has added one new product after another over the past few months.

Earlier this year, all the rage was over hemp-derived Delta-8 THC products: federally legal under the 2018 Farm Bill, and psychoactive enough to produce a high similar enough to regular old (and banned) plant-derived THC to move markets. But with the federal government and the states cracking down on Delta-8, Howard started offering edibles and vaporizer cartridges featuring yet another “new” cannabinoid (or new to consumers, at least): THC-O, or THC-O acetate.

What is THC-O?

First discovered by chemists decades ago (and first observed by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration in 1978) THC-O is an analogue of “regular” plant-derived Delta-9 THC, meaning its chemical structure is similar. More specifically, THC-O is a “prodrug,” meaning after the body metabolizes THC-O, it becomes THC.

THC-O can be derived from Delta-8 THC, which is obtained from CBD—which in turn comes from hemp, which is legal to cultivate, sell, and tinker with. In April, the U.S. Patent and Trade Office issued Nextleaf Solutions, what they believe is the first patent for a THC-O extraction process. This is why THC-O is important to Howard—as well as any other business or entrepreneur eager to participate in the greater cannabis industry, while staying outside of  regulated adult-use markets—because it means he can sell it in Indiana.

So far, the reception is encouraging, he told Cannabis Now recently.

“I’ve had customers tell me it helps with their appetite,” he said. Others say using THC-O is like eating “way too many gummies,” he added, describing the effect in turn as “a slight feeling of being on psychedelics” and “an indica and a sativa feeling.” 

One thing THC-O is not, he said, is weak.

‘Three Times Stronger’ Than THC

THC-O is supposedly up to three times stronger than “normal” Delta-9 THC, something close to “weed on steroids,” as Westword put it in a December 2019 article. “It hits you in waves,” Howard said. “Just when you think you’re coming down, it hits you again.”

It’s safe, he said, but “I highly suggest starting with a low dose.”

Not everyone agrees.

THC-O’s critics include prominent cannabis researchers as well as some businesses and entrepreneurs. In their analysis, THC-O is merely the latest synthetic substitute for what customers really want—regular old cannabis.

“Industry businesses are constantly looking for the next value proposition to stick on their product box so they can stand out in a highly saturated and competitive Delta 8 market,” said Ashley Dellinger, the owner of The Hemp Collect, a Texas-based CBD wholesaler that deals with Delta-8 THC—but not THC-O. “I don’t see a lot of people deep diving into the repercussions of consumption of these compounds insomuch as they are obsessed with not missing out on another potentially large revenue opportunity.”

Exactly what a concentrated, semi-synthetic product like THC-O will do to the human brain and body is still unclear, but more menacing are the methods with which THC-O is extracted from its source material.

How is THC-O Extracted?

In an August interview with Hempgrower.com, Dr. Ethan Russo, one of the most respected experts and researchers in cannabis science, suggested that the THC-O extraction process might not be entirely legal. Under a 1986 law passed by Congress called the Federal Analogue Act, any compound that’s an analogue of a banned compound is subject to the same bans. For now, Delta-8 THC, named because it has one less carbon bond than Delta-9 THC, may escape this snare.

But the body doesn’t care about the law. What the body does care about are adulterants and other potentially dangerous additives. Though there’s not one standardized THC-O extraction process, Russo believes most THC-O makers use a reagent called acetic anhydride to convert their source material to THC-O. And acetic anhydride is highly flammable and very dangerous to humans. On top of the dangerous process, Russo added, there’s the potential of an unwelcome reaction in the human body. Most people don’t need huge amounts of THC—and, in fact, getting too high is one of the most common complaints from new (and old!) cannabis users.

“So, between the inherent danger of the process to make it, the potential toxicity of the product, and its illegality, I’ve got to recommend that people forget about it,” Russo said in his interview. “It’s just not something that people should be trying.”

Howard says he is convinced that THC-O is safe. Anyone who doubts him can use their phone to scan his products’ QR code and see the process for themselves. At the least, someone purchasing from Higher Life CBD knows where the product came from; someone buying online or at a gas station or smoke shop might not have that same level of accountability. 

Other entrepreneurs like Dellinger aren’t convinced and want more data. “We are working with the appropriate people to understand the safety of this compound before moving forward and urge other to do their due diligence,” she said. For now, product makers should “[m]aintain the plant’s range of phytochemistry as much as you can in your extractions and formulations,” she added.

Are Delta-8 THC Products Actually Dangerous?

Last Tuesday, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Food and Drug Administration published a warning to the public “regarding the potential health risks of using Delta-8 THC products.”

Part of their reasoning for putting out a statement was due to “an uptick in adverse event reports to the FDA and the nation’s poison control centers.”

Questionable Side Effects

Cannabis isn’t supposed to give you a hangover. But that’s exactly what the Delta-8 THC gummies—purchased from a gas station, copped at a smoke shop, or ordered online —did to one of Greg Gerdeman’s friends.

“They took one and felt totally hung over the next day,” recounted Gerdeman, a biochemist and researcher and member of the Society of Cannabis Clinicians. “They were like, ‘What was that?’”

Investigating that question is what interests Gerdeman. As a “lesser known” cannabinoid, known to science for decades, Delta-8 THC—now famous and in vogue in the past year, since it can be derived from hemp, and thus federally legal—is safe and therapeutic. So that wasn’t the problem.

The culprit, Gerdeman suspects, was whatever else was in the gummy: Impurities, possibly, like residual solvents from the chemical synthesis process in which CBD isolate is converted to Delta-8 THC.

Or something else entirely different, like one of the still-unknown isomers created during that process.

As for exactly what that was, and what it could do to the human body? Nobody knows. And that, along with a high probability for contamination with toxic solvents, is the problem with Delta-8 THC products. According to Gerdeman and his SCC colleagues these dangerous unknowns are an enormous potential liability for the burgeoning hemp industry, for which Delta-8 THC products are of vital importance.

Consensus For Concern

Since former President Donald Trump signed the 2018 Farm Bill into law, legalizing hemp cultivation and production in the U.S., the hemp industry has grown by leaps and bounds, but has largely failed to find profitable traction. In late 2019, with hemp companies overproducing and extraction companies sitting on mounds of unsold CBD isolate, a savior appeared in the guise of Delta-8 THC.

Molecularly very similar to Delta-9 THC found in adult-use cannabis (and banned by the federal Controlled Substances Act), Delta-8 THC acts on the brain and body in a similar fashion. And conveniently, can be derived from CBD isolate via a relatively simple chemical process.

But the cannabis industry has moved faster than either regulatory agencies or researchers. Late last month, the SCC—which includes other respected cannabis researchers such as Dr. Ethan Russo—released a “consensus” paper on Delta-8 THC products.

Untrained Chemists, Unknown Compounds

According to the SCC, the “untrained garage chemists” that are making Delta-8 THC products—which, with few exceptions, are not regulated by states and are not marketed or sold with any assurance of potency or quality control—may be selling products contaminated with solvents like the “light hydrocarbons” used in the extraction process.

More troubling, perhaps, is the science experiment Delta-8 THC product users are conducting on themselves—knowingly or not. According to the SCC, the conversion process creates “a number of molecular isomers that do not exist in nature” and that have yet to be fully identified in lab analyses.

And “we have no knowledge” how these “unidentifiable… isomers behave in the body,” according to the SCC’s consensus statement. Do they cause hangovers? Will they interact poorly with other drugs? How much of them are in Delta-8 products made from CBD isolate with 80 percent purity? These are questions consumers should ask, but product makers themselves likely have no idea.

“What’s most often underappreciated and completely glossed over in all of the sort of bubblegum ‘What is Delta 8’ stories out there, are the impurities that are created by the synthetic process,” Gerdeman said. “The fact that it can be done so cheaply and with a lot of side products that are completely unknown to nature… that’s what I am mostly concerned with.”

“I’m not concerned about Delta 8 as a molecule,” he added. “We know very well cannabinoids are remarkably safe and therapeutic molecules.”

“What I am most concerned about is, chemists are cooking together products and they’re able to sell their work in the public marketplace when it’s only met internal controls,” Gerdeman said.

Hemp Industry Aware

While Delta-8 product makers claim their wares are safe and pass muster, hemp advocates are aware of the issues raised by the SCC.

“Truly it’s something that has never been in the food or supplement supply chain, and that’s a problem from a regulatory standpoint,” said Bob Hoban, a Denver-based attorney who specializes in the hemp industry and has advocated for hemp legalization. “These new isomers are not found in trace quantities in hemp seed oil, or hemp seed, or anything that was previously allowed under federal law.”

“That’s concerning to the public, and it should be,” Hoban added.

Though there are examples in medical literature of dangerous and potentially deadly interactions with CBD products, there are no such examples yet of a Delta-8 product causing health problems. This could partially be because Delta-8 is still so new.

For years the federal government has pondered product-safety standards for products containing hemp derived CBD. The federal Food and Drug Administration may add Delta-8 products to regulations and may issue regulations Delta-8 product makers don’t like if Delta-8 product makers fail to self-regulate.

The New Entourage Vape Cartridges: Delta 8, THC-O and HHC Carts

Have you tried the new entourage products? Several companies have recently introduced what they call “Entourage Vape Cartridges”, a combination of three new psychoactive cannabinoids: Delta 8 THC, THC-O and HHC with some CBN, CBD & CBG for the final touch.

Simply put, entourage vape cartridges are new blends, that combine different cannabinoids, in-order to reach the most-wanted ‘Entourage Effect‘ (AFA the ‘Family Effect‘ – the way different cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids work together to offer health benefits you can usually only get when consuming the entire plant in its natural state). This is why the best hemp products are usually either full spectrum or broad spectrum and not made from isolate. However, it is much more complicated when you are trying to create hemp-derived psychoactive entourage vape cartridges, as some of the compounds are not naturally occouring, or exist in only small amounts.

That’s why, until recently using psychoacative entourage vape cartridges felt somewhat ‘hollow’, as there were just not enough cannabinoids to create the full-image needed for a deeper experience. All that changed when the new cannabinoids such as Delta 8, THC-O, THCV, THCP and even HHC entered the game. Now, for the first time ever, you can create sophisticated blends that that gives you a much more rewarding experience.

Have You Tried The New HHC Carts?

While these new products are psychoactive, some even very potent, they are sold online, as unlike regular Delta 9 THC, they are hemp-derived and not coming from cannabis. This loophole provides hemp-suppliers a legal way to sell psychoactive products, such as Delta 8 THC, THC-O, HHC, Delta-10, THCP, THCV and starting this month, allowed them to create ‘entourage vape cartridges’ – advanced products with tailor-made blends that effectively takes you to the next level.

A word of caution before looking into the new entourage vape cartridges: these are high-potency carts, so start low and grow slow, as you are among the very first to ever try them and the right dosage haven’t been calculated yet. Always make sure you buy from a company you trust and be patient as some cannabinoids need more time to kick in. Last but not least you should keep in mind that blended products might affect people differently, so be open for an experience, as everything is possible with new blended products.

FDA Still Trying to Limit Vaping, the Healthier Smoking Option

vape laws hurt kids

There have been a lot of laws that have been threatened or enacted in the last few years as the government tries hard to deal with the massive E-cig black market that has disturbed cigarette sales so much.Earlier this year we were threatened with a ban on sending vape products through the mail, which luckily didn’t go through. Now, the FDA approaches a September deadline for deciding which vape products get to stay, and which must go, with some already removed.The FDA is still trying to limit vaping, despite it being a healthier option.

8 Reasons to Try Delta-8 THC Before it’s Too Late

Delta-8 THC’s popularity has skyrocketed, but its days appear to be numbered. Although Delta-8 THC is legal at the federal level, more and more states are banning or restricting its sale across the United States. If you can still buy Delta-8 THC where you live, we recommend trying it before it’s too late. 

Delta-8 is not just THC for those who can’t get “regular” Delta-9-THC (hereafter called “THC”). It has its own, unique benefits, including offering a happy, clear-headed high with less risk of anxiety or paranoia than THC. It offers health benefits for pain, inflammation, nausea and more. Amazingly, scientific research even shows that Delta-8 THC could help you lose weight while making you eat more! (A 50-day experiment found that mice given Delta-8 THC ate 22 percent more than usual but lost 20 percent of their original body weight.) Have we convinced you yet?!

Unfortunately, there’s a lot of sketchy Delta-8 THC online and in gas stations and shops. For the highest quality Delta-8 THC, as well as other rare cannabinoids and full-spectrum Hawaiian CBD, we recommend Rare Cannabinoid Company’s products. They were the first to create a pure THCV (tetrahydrocannabivarin) tincture and are about to launch the world’s first pure CBDV (cannabidivarin) oil. 

With Rare Cannabinoid Company’s vast apothecary (all produced in a cGMP facility and third-party lab tested), you can also mix and match Delta-8 THC with stimulating THCV for an energy and appetite suppression, combine it with CBN (cannabinol) for a dreamy night’s sleep, with CBC (cannabichromene) for depression, CBG (cannabigerol) for pain and inflammation, or CBDA (cannabidiolic acid) for nausea.

We’ll explain the eight reasons you should try Delta-8 THC before it’s too late, but first, let’s dive into what Delta-8 THC really is.

What is Delta-8 THC?

Delta-8 THC is a hemp-derived cannabinoid that is very similar to the THC found in cannabis. Delta-8 THC can promote euphoria, elation and relieve symptoms. Scroll down for scientific studies on chemotherapy-related nausea, pain, inflammation, weight control and more. 

Does Delta-8 THC get you high?

Yes, Delta-8 THC is intoxicating, with most users saying it feels about half to two-thirds as strong as THC. Many say it offers a positive, uplifting experience where they feel more in control and sociable than with THC. 

What’s the difference between Delta-8 THC and THC? 

The two cannabinoids are chemically and functionally nearly identical. They both have a double bond, but Delta-8 has it on the eighth carbon, while Delta-9 has it on the ninth. This difference slightly alters the way they affect the human endocannabinoid system (ECS). 

Is Delta-8 THC legal?

Most Delta-8 THC is derived from hemp. Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp (cannabis containing less than 0.3 percent THC) can be grown and used for extraction across the United States. This means that Delta-8 THC is federally legal even in states where THC is illegal. However, as new legislation comes into place, this loophole could be closed. More and more states are banning Delta-8 THC due to its intoxicating properties.

Can Delta-8 THC be shipped to me?

It depends where you live. Delta-8 THC is federally legal in the United States However, some states are banning it. Brands such as Rare Cannabinoid Company offer free U.S. shipping on orders over $49. However, if your particular state has banned Delta-8 THC, it cannot be shipped to you—just like it can’t be sold in stores there. 

Can I buy Delta-8 THC in a cannabis dispensary?

Again, it depends where you live. Some states require that each dispensary grows and produces all of the products it sells. Since dispensaries normally sell THC from cannabis, it is unlikely that they would grow a field of hemp specifically for making Delta-8 THC.

What are the benefits of Delta-8 THC?

1. Eat more and lose weight with Delta-8 THC
Can you really eat more and lose weight with Delta-8 THC? We listed this benefit first, as it’s so extraordinary. Unlike THCV, which is known for suppressing appetite, Delta-8 THC will definitely give you the munchies. In fact, this scientific experiment found that mice who were given Delta-8 THC ate significantly more than those given THC. 

Over 50 days, the mice given Delta-8 THC ate 22 percent more than usual. However, amazingly, they lost 20 percent of their original body weight! In addition to weight loss, their activity levels and cognitive function also improved. The scientists who ran the experiment concluded that the cannabinoid could be a “therapeutic agent in the treatment of weight disorders.” 

In general, cannabis users have lower body mass indexes and are less prone to obesity than non-cannabis users, according to this research. Scientists believe this is because cannabis use speeds up metabolism, and Delta-8 THC appears to have a key role in helping people burn more calories faster. 

If you want to increase your chances of weight loss with cannabis even further, we’d recommend taking THCV. This cannabinoid decreases hunger, making it easier for people to attain a calorie deficit and lose weight faster. Buy THCV here.

2. Delta-8 THC offers a happy, controllable high.

While some seek out the strongest cannabis flower, dabs and shatter to get obliterated, many prefer a happy, more controllable, high—at least for some activities or daytime use. Delta-8 THC is intoxicating but in a mellower, more functional way, with users’ descriptions ranging from uplifting and energizing to calming and relaxing. 

This makes it easier to take it in the morning, on a long flight, at family get-togethers or other occasions where you’d like to take the edge off without being too high to talk or move. Delta-8 THC’s lower level of psychoactivity also makes it more tolerable for those using hemp/cannabis for health and wellness benefits. (Warning: Do not drive a vehicle or operate machinery while using Delta-8 THC.)

3. Delta-8 THC may lower anxiety and improve mood.

Feeling anxious or depressed? Delta-8 THC may be able to help. Compounds in hemp and cannabis can increase levels of the brain’s “bliss” chemical, anandamide. While a little THC can often improve mood, too much can do the opposite and increase mental and emotional instability. Delta-8 THC’s mellower high appears more likely to improve mood with less risk of triggering anxiety, paranoia or depression. 

Microdosing Delta-8 THC could also help one’s mental state without being as intoxicating. It may also be helpful to combine Delta-8 THC with CBC (cannabichromene) and/or CBD (cannabidiol). This is because CBC has been found to be the best non-psychoactive cannabinoid for raising anandamide and CBD positively affects dopamine and serotonin levels. See studies on CBC, CBD and THC for depression here. 

Each cannabinoid offers unique health and wellness properties. Combine them with each other or add them to Rare Cannabinoid Company’s full-spectrum Hawaiian CBD, or your favorite full- or broad-spectrum THC or CBD oil, for an enhanced entourage effect. Photo courtesy of Rare Cannabinoid Company.

4. Delta-8 THC is 200 percent more effective than THC for nausea.

Delta-8 THC appears hugely successful at reducing nausea and vomiting. This scientific experiment—”An efficient new cannabinoid antiemetic in pediatric oncology”—was carried out on child cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy to see if Delta-8 THC could prevent nausea and vomiting. Amazingly, vomiting was prevented in all 480 treatment sessions. 

The United States government also has a patent for Delta-8 THC which states that it is 200 percent more effective at treating nausea than THC. 

CBDA (cannabidiolic acid) is also well-known for reducing nausea and preventing anticipatory nausea (which occurs when people begin vomiting at the sight of a chemotherapy treatment center or place where they have experienced extreme nausea in the past.) Delta-8 THC and CBDA can be combined for even more nausea relief.

5. Best for combining with THCV or CBN

Want to recreate your favorite cannabis sativa or indica? THCV offers a stimulating boost of energy and suppresses appetite. A 1:1 combo of THCV with Delta-8 THC closely mimics the feel of Durban Poison or Doug’s Varin. Meanwhile, CBN (cannabinol) is the best cannabinoid for deep relaxation and improved sleep. A 1:1 combo of CBN and Delta-8 THC feels akin to Hindu Kush or Grandaddy Purple. 

Rare Cannabinoid Company’s 500mg purified tinctures make it extremely easy to mix and match according to your needs or desires. Delta-8 THC’s mellow high is ideal for fun and easy dosing. Buy Delta-8 THC, THCV and CBN here.

6. Delta-8 THC is helpful for pain and inflammation relief.

Cannabis patients have long reported relief from pain and inflammation and scientific studies show that Delta-8 THC may be especially useful.  This 2018 study showed that Delta-8 THC reduced corneal pain and inflammation. This separate 2020 study also found Delta-8 THC effective at reducing ocular pain and inflammation. Delta-8 THC may also be helpful for patients suffering from painful gastrointestinal (GI) problems including irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) as seen in this medical review

Rare cannabinoid CBG (cannabigerol) could also be combined with Delta-8 THC, as it is being studied for use against many diseases, as you can see in this Leafly article: “Is CBG better than CBD and THC for pain, inflammation, and aging?” 

7. Delta-8 THC may improve cognitive function.

Dementias, including Alzheimer’s disease, take a huge toll on patients and their families. Research shows that Delta-8 THC shows potential for treating these devastating illnesses. This study on mice found that even very low doses of Delta-8 THC altered neurotransmitter levels and improved cognitive function. 

This separate study found that Delta-8 THC increased acetylcholine levels (ACH) in the brain, which is important, as Alzheimer’s disease is linked to declining levels of Ach.

There is also a lot of research on CBC showing it may be helpful in the treatment of cognitive decline. 

8. Delta-8 THC may fight cancer tumors.

Scientific studies suggest that Delta-8 THC might influence the growth of cancer cells and tumors. In this study, mice who were given Delta-8 THC for 20 days showed a significant reduction in tumor size and increase in survival time. 

Many of Delta-8 THC’s benefits are interlinked. It’s mellower high makes it easier for users to take advantage of its health and wellness properties. From first-time users to those trying to take the edge off an important event, Delta-8 THC is worth giving a try. Oh, and don’t forget you might be able to eat more and lose weight too! 

Different cannabinoids each have different benefits and can be added to your THC or CBD regime to enhance particular effects. To learn more and buy Delta-8 THC you can visit Rare Cannabinoid Company. They also have a sister brand, Hawaiian Choice, which specializes in broad spectrum Hawaiian CBD tinctures infused with terpenes, topicals and edibles that are all infused with real Hawaiian fruits, essential oils or Big Island honey. After all, a real Hawaiian CBD gummy may be just what you need when Delta-8 THC gives you the munchies!

Legal Loophole? Everyone is Buying Legal Delta 9 THC Gummies Online…

It’s a well-known fact that Delta 9 THC is federally illegal. Should a product contain this cannabinoid, it can make up no more than 0.3% of the total compounds in said product. A few companies are starting to offer “legal delta 9 THC gummies” which are edibles containing less than 0.3 percent Delta 9 THC by dry weight. Some gummies, like the ones I tried, contain only Delta 9 while others contain a combination of both Delta 8 and Delta 9.

So are these gummies legit? Well, it depends on if you’re buying pure Delta 9 or combo gummies. The former containing only delta 9 are akin to what you would find in a dispensary. For example, I tried the Urb Effex Delta 9 Vegan Gummies which contain 15mg of Delta 9 THC per piece. On the other hand, we have the Delta 8/Delta 9 combo gummies which sound cool initially, but when we stop and think about the way all tetrahydrocannabinols are digested in the human body, we come to realize that it really doesn’t matter whether it contains that small amount of Delta 9 THC or not. Sure it’s fun, but when it comes to effects, it’s unlikely you’ll feel any higher from these D8/D9 combo candies than you would from straight Delta 8 or Delta 9 THC edibles. But then again, you should try it for yourself, as this is currently the only legal way to buy Delta 9 THC online.

Edibles are fun, and they hit in a different way than smokables. It’s wonderful that we now can buy Delta 9 THC edibles online, same varieties and quality of what you would at a local dispensary in a legal state. To try them out for yourself, make sure to subscribe to The Delta 8 Weekly Newsletter to learn more and for exclusive deals on Delta 8, Delta 10 THC, THC-O, THCV, THCP & HHC.


Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC

When people think of “THC”, they’re thinking of Delta 9 Tetrahydrocannabinol, which is the main psychoactive compound found in cannabis plants. For decades, THC has been both illegal and highly controversial because lawmakers were too heavily focused on its psychoactive properties, rather than acknowledging all of its many possible uses in the health and wellness sectors.

One of the most common, non-recreational uses for THC is to manage pain, including that stemming from inflammation, headaches, injury, chemotherapy, menstrual cramps, or neuropathic pain. Anecdotal evidence, as well as some newer clinical studies, indicate that THC is also one of the best natural remedies for treating digestive issues such as nausea and wasting syndrome.

Another promising medicinal use for THC is brain cell regeneration, which is particularly interesting since one of the main talking points on keeping cannabis illegal is how bad it is for the brain; but that is definitely not accurate. This is especially true for elderly patients who use THC products. Studies show that it helps with more than just brain function and memory improvement, but THC actually helps change the structure of the brain cells to take on traits of cognitive youth. Other therapeutic uses for THC include: sleep aid, antioxidant, antimicrobial, epilepsy relief, glaucoma, and muscle relaxer.

By comparison, Delta 8 is a bit more mellow than Delta 9 as far as the high goes, but the medical benefits are very similar. From a chemical standpoint, the only difference between the two is that Delta 8 has its double bond on the 8th carbon chain, whereas Delta 9 has it on the 9th chain.

All About THCP: A Highly Potent, Natural Cannabinoid

A Bit About Edibles

We’ve all noticed that edibles hit way different than smokables. That is because of a little endocannabinoid known as 11-hydroxy-THC. Sometimes written 11-OH-THC, this compound is naturally occurring and made in the human body. After delta-8 or delta-9 THC has been swallowed, the body breaks it down and metabolizes it via the liver. 11-hydroxy-THC is a metabolite of the other tetrahydrocannabinols and is said to be much more potent than its precursors. This is why delta-8 THC edibles are just as strong as delta-9 edibles, but the same can’t be said for smoking and vape products.

In some ways, edibles feel like they get you more than flowers and even concentrates sometimes. Although it takes a while to get rolling, once they kick in, I’m laid out on the couch almost every time. I feel extra stoned, I’m laughing at everything, and eventually, I get super tired. This seems to be commonplace when it comes to edibles; but why exactly do they differ so much from smoking… you know, from a scientific standpoint?

It all boils down to two physiological factors: the drug-metabolizing enzymes in your GI tract, and blood flow to the liver. When you first eat a cannabis edible, various enzymes in the GI tract begin digesting the food. From that point, blood flow from the GI tract goes through the liver where all these enzymes are metabolized, then the blood continues into general circulation. When the metabolites are formed, that’s when you get the effects of 11-hydroxy-THC.

However, when you smoke or vape, the THC is absorbed through the lungs and distributed directly into the bloodstream. The active compounds make their way to the brain where they activate the CB receptors that are part of the endocannabinoid system. When smoking, you are feeling the effects of the phytocannabinoids (plant-cannabinoids), rather than the compound formed during eating and metabolism, which is an endocannabinoid.

An Interesting Legal Loophole

Now back to the legal Delta 9 THC gummies. Again, I tried the Urb Effex Vegan, Hemp-Derived Delta 9 THC Gummies in Blueberry Citrus Burst. First of all, I want to mention that the consistency of these gummies feels more like a Jell-O shot rather than an actual gummy, but the flavor was wonderful none the less. As far as effects, they hit me like all Delta 9 THC edibles, I got really stoned then after a while, really tired and slept like a baby. So overall, they’re on par with what what comes to mind when most people think of weed gummies.

Now, I’ll take another example from the brand ATLRx, simply because they’re the first one to pop up when you do a google search of “legal delta 9 THC gummies”. According to the product details on their site, each gummy contains 22mg of Delta 8 THC and 3mg of Delta 9 THC, keeping the total amount of D9 under that 0.3% legal limit.

At first, it’s logical to assume that you’ll get higher with these gummies than other ones because when you smoke delta 9, it’s much more intoxicating than delta 8. However, because of how all tetrahydrocannabinols convert to 11-hydroxy-THC when metabolized, there won’t be a noticeable difference whether the gummies have 22mg of Delta 8 THC and 3mg of Delta 9 THC, or just 25mg of Delta 8 THC alone. Once they go through the digestive process, they all become the same compound, and thus, the effects will be the same.

Having said that, the above dosage of any type of THC in a single gummy is quite potent, and one or two pieces should be more than enough for a novice user. For reference, when giving edibles to any of my elderly relatives, I usually give them about 30 milligrams, and each one of ATLRx’s gummies contains 25mg of total THC.

Legal Delta 9 THC gummies – Final Thoughts

I can go on about the effects, flavors, and product details, but at the end of the day, you won’t know whether you like them or not until you try them for yourself. If you’re going with Urb Effex, you’ll get delicious gummies with natural, hemp-derived Delta 9 THC – again, very similar to what you find at a dispensary. I personally have not tried any other brand of online “legal” delta 9 edibles, so I can’t comment on flavors and effects of those products.
