    More Frequently Asked Questions About Delta 9:


    What are the effects of using delta 9?

    Now that we’ve answered our original question, what is delta 9? The logical next step is to ask, how will delta 9 make me feel? The answer is nuanced and depends on a range of variables, but let’s explore.

    • The Entourage Effect – Also referred to as the ensemble effect, the entourage effect refers to the way cannabis terpenes enhance the effects of cannabinoids. Generally, delta 9 containing both THC and CBD may create a more beneficial impact on use for  conditions, such as anti-inflammation or chronic pain. THC and CBD appear to be synergistic offering deeper results in some patients.

    • Recreational Effects – Delta 9 creates the euphoric effects associated with getting  “high.” Depending on how your body and brain respond to delta 9, you may have experience:

      • Intoxication/euphoria – Unlike alcohol intoxication, cannabis intoxication doesn’t increase aggression. Users may feel slower, calmer and generally happier.

      • Sedation/relaxation – THC can also help users relax and overcome sleep challenges.

      • Athletic enhancement – Delta 9 may have anti-inflammatory and pain-killing properties that can be beneficial to athletes – from improving recovery time after workouts or healing more quickly after injuries.

     How does delta 9 work with the body’s own systems?

    Delta 9 THC can also be referred to as Delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol is known as a phytocannabinoid. The cannabinoids have a makeup that is a mirror to the human body’s endocannabinoid system. This match allows the CB1 and CB2 receptors found within the body’s central and peripheral nervous system to be impacted by delta 9. When the body’s CB1 and CB2 receptors become stimulated, the endocannabinoid system may be able to influence the way the body reacts to pain, hunger and even the way it experiences emotions. Delta 9 is able to affect a person through this endocannabinoid system.

    Is delta 9 legal?

    It depends. Many states have decriminalized marijuana but it’s still not legal for medicinal or recreational use. Some states only allow you to use delta 9 if you have a medical reason and go through the process of getting the medical marijuana “card” which proves that you use it for an approved medical condition. While other states have legalized it for recreational purposes, in which case you can purchase it if you are 21 or older. To keep delta 9 users on their toes, some of the rules can even fluctuate from county to county. For these reasons and the fact that it is continuously changing, it’s imperative to check the rules and regulations of the state you live in and the states you visit.
