Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ-9-THC) is the main psychoactive ingredient in marijuana (cannabis) that makes users feel high. It is usually derived from marijuana plants, but can also be found in hemp-derived products with less than 0.3 percent of delta 9.This 0.3 percent is converted to approximately three milligrams per gram of THC delta 9 in a product. The FDA maintains that THC is an unauthorized food additive and that products containing THC cannot be sold as dietary supplements. However, several states explicitly state that any cannabis with 0.3% THC or less is considered “hemp”, while any cannabis that exceeds this THC limit is considered “marijuana”.
Increases in the average THC content and the relative popularity of seedless cannabis, combined with the absence of the antipsychotic cannabinoid CBD, suggest that current trends in cannabis use pose an increasing risk for users susceptible to the harmful psychological effects associated with dose of THC. For those seeking the psychoactive effects of THC delta 9 without worrying about legality, delta 8 hemp gummies with THC have been a lifesaver. Research on the effects of THC (or delta-9-THC) is complicated by many factors, but there is sufficient evidence that THC can be harmful, especially for younger people whose brains are still developing. The choice between Delta 8 THC and Delta 9 THC ultimately depends on your personal needs and desires.
It is important to understand the legal implications of using products containing Delta 9 THC and to be aware of the potential risks associated with its use.
