What is Delta 9 THC?
Delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol, or Delta-9 THC, is the most well-known and abundant cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. People use Delta 9 THC and just “THC” interchangeably – D9 THC is the cannabinoid that gives people the head-high experienced when using cannabis products.
What is the Best Kind of Delta 9 THC?
There are a ton of different ways to enjoy D9 THC. The most popular, fastest ways of enjoying delta 9 THC are smoking flower or prerolls, and vaping. Other common options include D9 edibles like gummies, chocolates, and sugar drops, and tinctures.
Is Delta 9 THC Legal?
Delta 9 THC is legal in some states with no limits, but some others ban the cannabinoid out-right, or place heavy restrictions on it. In our state of Texas, products can only contain .3%, or less, of delta 9 THC. Be sure to verify your own local laws before purchasing Delta 9 THC online.
What is Delta-8 THC?
Delta-8 Tetrahydrocannabinol, or Delta-8 THC, is a less well-known cannabinoid. Experienced smokers and people in-the-know about cannabinoids consider it the younger brother of Delta 9 thc.
Delta 8 THC provides a gentler head-high than Delta 9 THC. This gentler high leads to a less intense feeling overall, and it is less likely to cause feelings of anxiety that you may experience when consuming Delta 9 THC.
What is the Best Kind of Delta 8 THC?
You can enjoy D8 THC in all of the same ways you can enjoy D9 THC. D8 flower is particularly popular, but many people that are new to cannabinoids prefer gummies and vapes as they are less harsh than smoking.
Is Delta 8 THC Legal?
Cannabinoids like Delta 8 THC are usually legal, but there are some states where Delta 8 THC is illegal. In some states where cannabis is fully legal, derivative products like Delta 8 isolate products are illegal. In Texas, Delta 8 THC is legal, and we carry a variety of gummies, disposables vapes, and other d8 products. We also ship these out nationally to states where D8 is legal.
What is THCa?
Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCa) is the raw, unheated form of THC found in the cannabis plant. When consumed raw, THCa is not psychoactive and provides some benefits similar to those experienced when consuming CBD. When ignited and inhaled, THCa will turn into 11-Hydroxy in your system, in much the same way as Delta 9, providing a very similar psychoactive effect to Delta 9 when inhaled.
What is the Best Kind of THCa?
Because THCa is only psychoactive when heated, you won’t get the same experience consuming THCa gummies or tinctures. You can still consume those products for some of the other effects enjoyed when consuming raw THCa, but the best THCa products for experiencing the full effects of THCa are flower and vapes.
Is THCa Legal?
Because of the nature of the 2018 farm bill, hemp flower with high percentages of THCa are allowed, as long as the D9 THC levels in the plant are low. THCa is allowed in our state of Texas and we carry a variety of vapes and THCa prerolls.
