The most potent compound in cannabis is THC, and it’s the compound responsible for that “stoned” feeling you get from cannabis. Delta-9 is a naturally occurring compound in both Hemp and Marijuana — and is the primary way that the law differentiates the two. Hemp can be legally sold in all 50 states only if the net weight contains less than 0.3% THC.
What is the difference between Marijuana and Hemp?
Both Marijuana and Hemp are species of Cannabis Sativa plants. Marijuana is federally illegal, but Hemp became federally legal when the Farm Bill passed in 2018. The law differentiates Marijuana and Hemp by the total Delta-9 THC content of a product, Marijuana is defined by containing more than 0.3% Delta-9 THC and Hemp is defined by containing less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC. This bill decriminalized hemp-derived products that contained less than 0.3% THC. Marijuana remains federally illegal because of its high THC content.
How much THC is in Hemp Compliant Delta-9-THC?
Hemp Compliant Delta-9-THC contains less than 0.3% THC by dry weight, ensuring that you can purchase Delta-9 in all 50 states. But the question on everyone’s mind is — can you get “high” from that small of a dose?
Each Hemp compliant Delta-9-THC product must maintain a 1,000 to 3 ratio of total weight to the weight of THC. Meaning if you had a 1 gram (1,000 mg) gummy, you could only have 3 mg of Delta-9-THC per gummy. If you had a 7 gram (7,000 mg) taffy, you could have 21 mg of Delta-9 THC per taffy.
Can I get high from Hemp Compliant Delta-9?
Similar to Marijuana-derived THC, Hemp-derived Delta-9-THC has psychoactive properties that will give a similar “high” to actual weed.
Everyone’s body composition is different, and we all respond differently to cannabinoids. Several factors, including age, genetics, tolerance, dose, and environment, can affect your experience. We recommend starting with a low dose of Delta-9-THC. You can try as little as 5 mg to understand how your body reacts before increasing your dose.
