What Are Delta 9 THC/CBD Gummies

If you have been following the news lately, you may have heard about a new product that is becoming increasingly popular - Delta 9 THC/CBD gummies. These gummies are made from hemp and are federally legal if their THC content is below 0.3%. Many people call these gummies "Delta 9 CBD" because of their association with CBD, but it is important to note that they are not CBD gummies. This blog post will discuss what Delta 9 THC/CBD gummies are  and how they can benefit you!

Delta 9 CBD Gummies Explained

As briefly mentioned in the intro, there is no such thing as Delta 9 CBD. Between hemp being so associated with CBD and with the thought of Delta 9 being illegal, the public has commonly called them Delta 9 CBD gummies. Most Delta 9 THC gummies don't even contain any CBD.

The legality of Delta 9 THC from hemp

The 2018 Farm Bill legalized all cannabinoids from hemp with the limitation of 0.3% THC by weight. This allows for heavier weighted products like gummies and tinctures to have THC added and be federally legal as long as the total content of THC is less than 0.3%. When it's under 0.3%, it gets the same treatment as a full spectrum CBD product. The hemp market has utilized this aspect of the farm bill and can make legal Delta 9 THC products to sell outside of restrictive state medical and recreational programs!

State Law 

Despite 0.3% Delta 9 THC hemp products being federally legal, some states have taken action to restrict or eliminate the sale of these products. Delta 9 THC does have psychoactive effects, and some states feel that violates the spirit of the 2018 Farm bill.

Delta 9 Gummies are considered a full spectrum product, so they are legal in most states.

They are outlawed explicitly in Alaska, Idaho, Iowa, and Kansas. 


Differences between Marijuana and Hemp derived delta 9

There is no difference between the molecule whether the Delta 9 THC comes from marijuana or hemp. A marijuana Delta 9 product is produced from cannabis plants with THC content greater than 0.3% and must abide by state medical and recreational cannabis laws.

Hemp produced Delta 9 THC is from plants that have low THC content below 0.3%. To be legal, the plant content of THC must be below 0.3%, and the final product needs to be below 0.3% THC by dry weight. This limits the amount of THC found in hemp products and makes other products impossible to produce legally, like vape products. Most legal Delta 9 hemp products are limited to gummies and tinctures because the heavyweight of the product allows for enough THC to produce an effect. 

Psychoactive Properties of Delta 9 gummies

Delta 9 THC's properties and effects do not vary between hemp and marijuana. A 10mg Delta 9 Marijuana gummy will produce the same effects as a 10mg Delta 9 Hemp gummy.

These gummies can cause an intoxicating effect, and you should not drive or operate heavy machinery when consuming.


Why Gummies are the perfect product for Delta 9 THC

To comply with the regulations from the 2018 Farm Bill, the THC content must remain less than 0.3% of the dry content weight of the product. A gummy typically weighs around 4 grams, allowing enough THC content to produce effects.

Other products like capsules and vape products would require significant dilution of THC content to be legal, making them ineffective. 

Delta 9 Gummies Side Effects

Side effects from Delta 9 THC can range from anxiety to paranoia. You may also experience a dry mouth and eyes.

It is important to note that because Delta nine gummies are a food product, they will take longer to digest than if smoked or vaped.

To avoid these potential side effects, you want to start slow and slowly work up the dosage amount until you get the desired effects.

Other THC products from hemp

In addition to Delta 9 THC, there are additional THC variants produced from hemp. These THC products don't fall under the 0.3% THC requirement to be legal because it is not Delta 9 THC.

Around 20 states have passed legislation to outlaw these variants, so you'll want to check and make sure these products are legal under local law before purchasing.

Delta 8

Delta 8 THC is the most popular alternative THC and was the first to market. Delta 8 is considered weed light and produces more euphoria in the body than Delta 9 THC.

Delta 8 THC is produced in a wide variety of products and has a wide range of strengths. We recommend sticking to tinctures and gummies and avoiding vape products. Shipping vape products is banned by all major carriers and mostly done illegally by untrustworthy companies. 

Buying Delta 9 THC Gummies Online

Delta 9 THC gummies derived from hemp are widely available online because of their federally legal status. Just because a company is selling them means they are legal, though. There are multiple ways a company can sell you an illegal product disguised as a legal one. 

You'll want to take a few steps to make sure the company selling Delta 9 gummies online is legit.

How to vet potential companies

Before buying your Delta 9 products from a hemp company online, you'll want to verify a few things to make sure they are legit. The most common tests done by independent third party labs and a good reputation.

3rd Party Test Results

Any company that doesn't post thrid party lab results should be avoided. It's the best way a company can be transparent, and if they aren't willing to show lab results to earn your trust, they don't deserve it. You'll also want to verify that the testing lab is legitimate as some bad actors have posted false results.

From the lab report, you'll want to verify the gummy contain less than 0.3 Delta 9 THC by dry weight. You'll also want to ensure it's done by the batch and verify that batch number when you receive the product.


The second way to vet the company is verified reviews on their website and independent sites like google and Facebook. Any legitimate company will have plenty of reviews from users on all platforms, and any company with no reputation or reviews and google and Facebook should be  avoided.
