what is delta 9

What is Delta-9? It’s a good question, especially when exploring your health and wellness options. You may have read about Delta-9 (Delta 9 Tetrahydrocannabinol, Delta 9 THC, Delta 9, D9, D9-THC, or THC) or heard friends or family talking about it. More commonly known to the world as THC, Delta-9 has quite a reputation. It’s a major cannabinoid found in marijuana plants but only in trace amounts in hemp plants (Cannabis sativa). The D9 THC cannabinoid is renowned for how it helps us live better lives, but there is much more to this compound than meets the eye.


Delta-9 impacts our minds and bodies in many helpful ways, and people around the world have used it in one form or another for centuries. As the saying goes, all that is old is new again, and it’s a perfect time to learn more about the holistic, natural benefits of D9 THC. Come with us as we discover all there is to know about Delta-9 THC and why Cheef Botanicals has the best hemp-derived D9 gummies in the industry!






What Is Delta-9 THC & Where Does It Come From?

Delta-9 THC is a cannabinoid, a naturally occurring cannabis plant compound, that produces euphoric sensations by stimulating our minds, calming racing thoughts, and helping our bodies relax. Both marijuana plants and hemp plants, the two main types of cannabis plant varieties, contain Delta-9 THC.


Whereas Delta-9 THC is the main cannabinoid in marijuana, hemp contains only minute amounts — 0.3% or less — of the cannabinoid. In fact, under federal law, the different THC levels in these two cannabis plants are what separates the marijuana plant from hemp. We’ll explore the legalities of D9 in hemp a little further in this article, but first, let’s learn more about how Delta-9 nourishes our mind and body.

How Does Delta 9 THC Interact With Your Endocannabinoid System?

Delta 9 THC supports our endocannabinoid system (ECS) to help keep the human body healthy and in balance. The ECS is a network of cell-signaling receptors located throughout every region of our body, including our central nervous system and major organs, including our brain. The ECS helps regulate and maintain several biological processes important to our everyday health. Such key processes include mood, memory, breathing, digestive function, sleep, and more.


Once THC enters your body, the cannabinoid binds itself to specific ECS receptors, known as CB1 and CB2 receptors. When THC binds to the CB1 receptors in our brains, it supports the anandamide molecule, a neurotransmitter in the brain that some call the “bliss” molecule. This interaction is a significant reason why Delta 9 elicits feelings of euphoria and happiness and soothes discomfort, among other benefits.



What Are the Benefits of Delta 9 THC?

Delta 9 THC provides a cornucopia of health benefits, and it’s astounding how nature created plants that help us! When D9 THC binds to CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors in the ECS, it helps by:


  • Uplifting our mood. Clear the mental fog and experience blissful, uplifting feelings when you need a mood change.
  • Sparking creativity. After firing up your internal engine, Delta 9 THC helps you shift gears into creative overdrive.
  • Easing discomfort. Sometimes we all need a little help recouping after a hard workout or calming everyday muscle tension and swelling.
  • Helping us relax. Put your headphones on and relax on the couch because D9 helps ease life’s daily stressors.
  • Getting better sleep. Delta 9 THC quiets racing thoughts, letting us drift into faster, deeper sleep.


These benefits help you optimize your wellness in several ways and put you on the path to better well-being. It’s no wonder that Delta 9 THC is the world’s most famous cannabis plant cannabinoid among enthusiasts.


What Are the Effects of Delta 9 THC?

Delta 9 THC may produce mild and temporary side effects if you don’t stay within the recommended guidelines. It’s crucial to understand your own tolerances whether you’re new to Delta 9 or an experienced consumer. Regardless of your experience, it’s important you consume within your limits and avoid high dosages.


However, if you happen to overconsume with high doses, you have an increased risk of experiencing temporary, mild side effects such as:


  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Dry eyes
  • Dry mouth
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Drowsiness


If you feel like you’ve overdone it, relax, as the effects will soon fade. If you’ve really gone overboard, the Cannabidiol (CBD) cannabinoid counteracts THC and will help you get back to normal form. You can find CBD in various wellness cannabis products, from gummies, tinctures, vapes, hemp flower, and more. At Cheef Botanicals, we specialize in hemp-based CBD products, and you’re sure to find one that meets your needs.

Is Delta 9 Legal?

Yes, hemp-derived Delta 9 THC products are legal at the federal level if the THC content is 0.3% or lower. Several years ago, Congress passed the 2018 Farm Bill that legalized hemp cultivation, making hemp federally legal if the THC levels meet the 0.3% or less threshold. This keeps hemp plants from being potential risks as controlled substances under federal law.


When it comes to hemp-derived Delta 9 products, if you stick with Farm Bill-compliant products made from hemp, you’re good to go. However, it never hurts to check your state’s laws and drug test requirements, as the legality may differ when you cross state lines.


It’s important to note that Delta 9 THC marijuana products are still considered illegal at the federal level. However, many states have also allowed the medical use of marijuana. To qualify for medical marijuana, you must obtain a medical marijuana card from the state and undergo the appropriate screening processes. Recent years have also seen several states enact laws allowing marijuana use for recreational purposes.


Because of the varying legality of marijuana-derived THC products, we recommend sticking with hemp-based Delta 9 products. That way, you can ensure you’re getting a safe and legal product made in accordance with the 2018 Farm Bill.

Delta 9 Tinctures

Delta 9 tincture (Delta 9 oil) is a carrier oil infused with hemp-derived D9 THC. Tinctures are very versatile and allow you to consume them in several ways. You can consume D9 oil directly, add it to your favorite food or drinks, or take it sublingually by placing your recommended amount underneath your tongue for faster absorption.


THCA Flower

Many people who smoked cannabis in the past love the ritual of preparing Delta 9 hemp flower for dry herb vaping or smoking a joint or bowl. Farm Bill-compliant hemp flower keeps that rebel spirit alive and well. And with THCA hemp flower, you can receive all the benefits of Delta 9 THC in hemp flower form!


THCA flower is hemp flower bred to contain high amounts of THCA (Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid), the cannabinoid precursor to THC. When you light up THCA flower, it undergoes decarboxylation and turns into THC. The more THCA in your hemp flower, the more THC you’ll have to enjoy! At Cheef Botanicals, we have a wide range of THCA strains to choose from that will have you floating away and experiencing the classic effects of THC.
