In the past few months, you may have noticed another famous cannabinoid popping up on shelves at your favorite local CBD store and online. It’s currently sold in mainly gummy and beverage form, and is able to give a euphoric effect if enough of it is consumed.
This cannabinoid we are referring to is none-other than THC, as in Delta-9 THC. Yes, this is the main cannabinoid in marijuana that is responsible for getting you buzzed, and has many scientifically supported health benefits. Are these THC products legal? Don’t you have to go to a cannabis dispensary to get THC gummies? Spoiler alert: not anymore.
Are Delta-9 THC gummies now legal?
Technically, as long as the product is derived from hemp plants, and contains less than 0.3% THC on a dry-weight basis, it is legal. This is due to the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, in which hemp is defined as a cannabis (sativa) plant that contains less than 0.3% THC on a dry-weight basis. Thus, making a hemp-derived CBD + THC gummy that has enough THC in it to give you a buzz, legal on a federal level. Making this health-supporting plant and its derivatives more accessible for those who need it most. Hemp, hemp, hooray!
A recent poll by Gallup shows now more than two in three Americans (68%) support legalizing cannabis. “As was the case in 2020, solid majorities of U.S. adults in all major subgroups by gender, age, income, and education support legalizing marijuana.” It seems that the sentiment for this plant medicine is growing in our modern age, as more and more enjoy the experience and benefits that cannabinoids like THC and CBD offer. For now, make sure your THC + CBD gummies are derived from hemp until full federal legalization of cannabis happens.
What Are The Benefits of CBD + THC Gummies?
There is a well-known theory called the entourage effect that hypothesizes that the effectiveness of cannabinoids and other cannabis plant compounds are enhanced in the body, when they are combined with each other. Suggesting that a well-rounded, cannabinoid-rich hemp product may be better, in comparison than an isolated cannabinoid product. Meaning the more, the merrier!
THC has been shown to relieve nausea, reduce inflammation, and promote healthy sleep, among other benefits. CBD + THC gummies may be great for those seeking to enhance pleasure and focus. With 5-10mg THC, and up to 25mg+ CBD, these ‘ratio gummies’ provide a lighter or heavier buzz, depending on how many you consume.
Human beings have been utilizing cannabis in one way or another throughout modern and ancient history. Records dating back to 1500 BC in the Ebers Papyrus tell of the Egyptians using a topical application of cannabis for inflammation. In recent history hundreds of studies have emerged that support the case for the therapeutic use of cannabinoids as medicine.
Should I try CBD + THC gummies if I already take CBD Oil?
For a lot of people, taking CBD Oil can be one of the most calming ways to start or end your day. Adding a higher amount of THC with your CBD use may only enhance these benefits. There are over 100 cannabinoids and hundreds of other potentially therapeutic compounds found in hemp. So far, THC and CBD are the most researched cannabinoids, and gummies make it easy for you to take a precise amount of each phytocannabinoid.
If you’re not interested in experiencing any psychotropic effects (in other words, a “buzz”), then a CBD oil may be a much better option for you. A Topical CBD product would be a good option too, as most topical CBD products don’t enter the bloodstream.
In addition, if your workplace requires random/periodic drug screening (healthcare, government, transportation, etc.), you may want to stick to our CBD Isolate-based products instead. In some people, even the small amount of THC in full-spectrum CBD products could result in a positive drug screen, especially if you are a regular, high-dose user.
THC + CBD Gummies might promote euphoric effects, especially if you take a higher serving of THC, which can easily be done if taking more than one gummy. It’s always best practice when trying a new cannabinoid to start with a smaller amount than you think you would need and adjust from there. Make sure to keep these Gummies out reach of children and animals.
CBD + THC Gummies are designed to give you a pleasurable cannabis experience, while still adhering to federally legal THC limits, as written in the 2018 Farm Bill. They also provide you with the calming benefits of full spectrum CBD. But in addition, you get the mood-enhancing vibe of a good cannabis sativa – in a tasty gummy or refreshing beverage. Talk about feel-good summer vibes!
