Delta-9 THC is of course the best know cannabinoid- IT has been getting people high for Centuries.  And now, based on the 2018 US Farm Bill definition of allowable delta-9 THC within Hemp on a dry weight basis- Delta 9 gummies are legal to ship throughout the Country.

So of course the logical first question- Are these the same as the THC gummies at the local dispensary?

Legal Delta 9 gummy Vs dispensary gummy

There are two main difference between these legal-to-ship D9 gummies and the gummies sold through adult use or medical dispensaries.

First difference, the cannabinoid is extracted from Hemp, rather than Cannabis.  Second, and most notable, the legal Delta-9 gummies are significantly bigger than their dispensary-sold counterparts- usually roughly 3 or 4 times the size and mass.

The bigger gummy contains less than than 0.3% of Delta-9 by total, individual dry weight of the gummy.

But in terms of potency, they are essentially identical milligram to milligram.   A 10 milligram gummy is the recognized “dose” of THC for edibles in most recreational States.  Most common gummy brands are sold in 100mg packages, consisting of 10 gummies.  The dispensary gummies provide the same effect and relief from certain conditions, as a hemp-derived Delta 9 THC gummy also dosed at 10 milligrams.

Both hemp and cannabis derived delta 9 gummies you really high, so if you’re a novice, start low and go slow!  And always remember to keep them away

What is Delta-9 THC?

Delta-9 THC or Δ-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ-9-THC)), is of course the main psychoactive component in cannabis. It is generally what is meant when referring to ‘thc’ in popular culture and press.  For thousands of years humans have used delta-9 THC to heal and celebrate. Or just get high.

If Cannabis were Federally legal, there would be no reason to reconstitute cannabinoids from hemp.  The practice of extracting delta-9 THC from hemp, where it exists in very small amounts is wasteful.  Since there is significantly more THC from years of purposeful breeding, the energy, resources, and land used to grow substantial consumable hemp strains would better be used for other crops, while the requisite amount of Delta 9 is already being extracted at a tiny fraction of resources used to procure the same amount of D9 from hemp harvest.

But with many Americans still having no access- and so here we are. “Legal Delta-9 THC” and Delta-9 Gummies.

Is Delta 9 legal?

Today in 2022, Delta-9 derived from Hemp has become a viable alternative for all Americans, based on the allowable THC levels of .03 by dry weight as interpreted from the 2018 US Farm Bill. Full spectrum hemp derived Delta 9 is the new boutique cannabinoid finding legal refuge in the Farm Bill’s definition of Hemp. Even though it comes from Hemp rather than the Cannabis Sativa plant, delta-9 extracted from hemp is indistinguishable from delta-9 originating from regular dispensary weed.

Delta 8 Vs Delta 9

The more common gummy available online is Delta-8.  Its more important to note that Delta-9 gummies are more potent the Delta-8.  D9 is roughly 50% to 25% more potent.  Although generally Delta-8 is sold in higher dosage, usually 25mg, rather than 10mg for Delta 9 gummies, which is also the typical dispensary gummy dose.

Both will get you high, but Delta 9 will get you higher if taking the same dose or edibles or equivalent amount of smoking or vaping.  Remember we’ve written a guide to the best delta 8 flower online in a previous post.

Delta 9 THC vs THC-O

Delta 9 is the most commonly associated with the sensation of being high.  Surprisingly it’s not the most psychoactive compound derived from Cannabis.  That honor belongs to THC-O, or THC acetate ester, which can be synthesized from THC or THCA.  THC-O was researched by the US military back in the 1940s, and first referenced in a book in 1974.  However no reports of THC-O gummies until 2021.

There are reports alluding to THC-O being between 2X-3X the potency of Delta 9 THC. That may be at a molecular level or when the extract is ingested directly. However most third party reviews of Delta 9 and THCO-O to be pretty close.  Delta 9 gummies seem to have a similar effect to THC-O gummies of the same dose.  But a segment of consumers definitely agree that THC-O Vapes and edibles get them extremely high in a more trippy or psychedelic way. We encourage you to research Reddit and and the THC-O sub-reddit specifically.  Don’t blame us when you’re hours deep down that rabbit hole.  Anyway you cut it, THC-O is at least as potent as Delta 9, to some more-so.  Proceed with caution.
