What is Delta 9 THC?
Delta-9 THC is a psychoactive cannabinoid that binds with and stimulates endocannabinoid receptors. This well-known cannabinoid, responsible for cannabis’s most noticeable effects, can elicit euphoria and other psychoactive effects.
Is Hemp-Derived THC Different Than Cannabis-Derived THC?
In short, there is no difference. Hemp is cannabis, and cannabis can be hemp. Hemp is a legal distinction- not a physical one, for cannabis grown under the 0.3% Delta-9 THC limit and is usually produced for cannabinoids like CBDA, CBGA, or THCA. Delta-9 THC, THCA, and other cannabinoids like CBDA and CBDGA are all naturally-occurring phytocannabinoids that are found in various strains of cannabis. These are the same compounds, no matter the source! Same effects, same relief, same plant, but with a legal way for us to provide it to you.
How is this legal?
You may have heard of Delta-8 THC, which has taken the psychoactive spotlight since the 2018 AG Farm Bill de-scheduled hemp and hemp-derived cannabinoids from the controlled substances list. However, that de-scheduling also applies to Delta-9 THC (under a certain allowed amount), the classic form of THC that most experience from cannabis. Hemp, being cannabis, contains a minute amount of Delta 9 THC, which can be extracted and used as any other cannabinoid, but the key is compliance. Compliant hemp products must contain under 0.3% Delta 9 THC on a dry weight basis. This means 3mg of Delta 9 THC can be present for every gram of product, and the product is still passing compliancy. Scale that weights up to a cookie, brownie, cereal treat, or tincture, and there’s room for a generous amount of Delta-9 while still being a federally legal hemp product!
How much should I take?
Here is a dosing guide roughly based on tolerances. Work your way from 5-10mg increments to find your tolerance. Never take more than you are comfortable with; always wait 4-6 hours before taking more THC to avoid unpleasant experiences.
- Low Tolerance (Newcomers, sensitive, micro-dosing): Take 5-10mg of Delta 9 THC per session, and wait 1/2 to 2 hours for the onset of effects. D9 THC may last anywhere from 4-6 hours, or even longer, depending on body chemistry. Always remember that a little goes a long way with THC. If no effects are noticeable or desired relief has not been reached, wait 4-6 hours and retake 5-10mg. When you are comfortable with the experience of 5-10mg after multiple sessions of taking small doses, and you’d like to try something more potent, work your way up into…
- Medium Tolerance (Casual, semi-experienced, not too strong): Take 10-25mg of Delta 9 THC per session, and wait 1/2 to 2 hours for the onset of effects. Wait for 4-6 hours before taking any more to avoid an unpleasant ride or too strong of an experience. Adjust the strength of your sessions in 5-10mg increments (either lower or higher) to find your perfect dosage. If the desired effects and relief are still not reached, you may have a…
- High Tolerance (Every day, experienced, high strength): Take 25mg-100mg+ of Delta 9 THC per session, and wait 1/2 to 2 hours for the onset of effects. This recommendation is for experienced individuals who are looking for maximum potency. These strengths may be overwhelming for anyone with a low or medium tolerance. High-tolerance guests may find their sweet spot in doses of 100mg+; we do not recommend newcomers or even casual THC users to dive into doses that high. It is all about personal trial and error and a slow but enjoyable built-up relationship with THC to find what works best for you.
How do I use a tincture?
To use a tincture, squeeze the top of the pipette attached to the bottle and suck the oil from the bottle into the graduated 1ml pipette; this is your best way of accurately measuring your dosage. Collect the desired amount in the pipette and gently deposit it by squeezing the top of the pipette again when placed underneath your tongue for a sublingual dose, or swallow for a more traditional edible dose. We recommend starting slow with tinctures; the effects may not be instant and need time to be absorbed in your body. The average onset time depends entirely on the individual consumer, so find your sweet spot for dosage and onset for effects, and you’ll be sure to have an amazing time with this unique and effective way of intaking cannabinoids.
Why Use a Tincture Over an Edible?
Tinctures are a fast and effective method of delivery when it comes to ingesting cannabinoids. Tinctures allow you to absorb cannabinoids through the blood vessels in the mouth, most concentrated in the gums and soft tissue, and especially underneath the tongue (sublingual). This absorption is faster than ingesting tinctures as a standard edible, which the stomach and liver must process before producing effects. Holding a tincture sublingually for 30-60 seconds or longer is the best way to absorb it quickly. When it comes to tinctures, they are fantastic for mixing into food or drink, sublingual administration, or direct ingestion. For sublingual use, drop the solution under the tongue and let it sit for 1-2 minutes. Any excesses that may be swallowed will be processed as usual.
Tincture effects may have a delayed onset after consumption.
