THC is the most well-known and popular cannabinoid, producing the psychoactive effects that cannabis is famous for.
When people think about the effects of cannabis, they’re normally thinking about the effects of THC. The psychoactive and intoxicating properties of THC enhance sights, sounds, tastes, and more.
THC stands for tetrahydrocannabinol, and it’s the most popular cannabinoid in cannabis. Depending on the type of cannabis, it exists in either abundant or trace amounts.
There are two types of cannabis plants: marijuana plants and hemp plants. The only difference between the two is that marijuana has over 0.3% Delta-9 THC by weight and hemp has less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC by weight.
This distinction was made for legal reasons. Marijuana is legal only in states that have legalized it for medical or recreational purposes, whereas hemp is federally legal for adults.
Adults across the country can now enjoy legal THC gummies with hemp-derived THC. Read on to learn more about THC, including how and why it’s legal.
What does THC do?
THC is the most popular cannabinoid for a reason. By interacting with your endocannabinoid system, THC causes many positive effects, including euphoria and relaxation.
THC also has many wellness benefits. Research suggests it may help promote healthy sleep, reduce nausea, and ease pain. Because of its wellness benefits, THC has been medically legalized in 37 states.
If you take too much THC, it can have negative side effects, like making you feel paranoid or anxious. To avoid this, try Canna Moons Delta-9 THC Gummies with 12 mg of CBD and 5 mg of THC. The soothing properties of CBD naturally counteract any negative side effects of THC and calm you down.
What are the types of THC?
THC is not one specific compound. It takes a variety of forms.
Different chemical analogs of THC have different potency levels, effects, and even legal statuses. The two most popular are Delta-9 THC and Delta-8 THC. They have almost identical effects, but Delta-9 is more potent.
Delta-9 THC is present in hemp but only in small quantities. Delta-8 THC is present in small quantities in both hemp and marijuana. Advances in cannabis technology have allowed for both of these cannabinoids to be legally extracted from hemp. Both are legal when hemp-derived, as long as they’re in a product with less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC by weight.
How much THC should I take?
Many factors determine how a given amount of THC will affect you: your body composition, tolerance for THC, and even how much you’ve eaten recently. Because of this, there is no one perfect dose that can be recommended for everybody.
To figure out the ideal amount of THC for you, experiment with dosages. Take into account how intensely you want to feel the effects of THC and how long THC gummies last. If you have never used THC before, start with a small amount, like half an edible, and work your way up or down from there.
If you want your first experience to be relatively mellow, you may want to start with Delta-8 THC Gummies, since Delta-8 is less potent than Delta-9 THC.
Is THC legal?
Thanks to the Farm Bill of 2018, THC is now legal for adults around the country. But there’s a catch.
A THC product is federally legal only if it contains cannabinoids derived from hemp and has 0.3% Delta-9 THC or less by weight. Products with THC that meet these requirements are classified as hemp products and are therefore federally legal.
Although it may sound like federally legal THC products don’t contain enough THC to have an effect, that’s definitely not the case. THC products can comply with the 0.3% rule while still containing a potent dose of THC.
