How to Safely Try THC Gummies
Have you heard the exciting news? Delta 9 THC gummies are joining our wide selection of cannabis-infused products, offering one more option for CBD and cannabis enthusiasts to choose from to best enhance their lives and wellness. This is good news, indeed.
If you’re new to delta 9 THC, or if you have not yet tried any CBD products with THC in them, you likely have a lot of questions:
Are THC gummies the same as marijuana products? (No!)
Will delta 9 THC gummies make me high? (To some degree, possibly – we’ll explain.)
How long does it take to feel the effects? (This varies – we’ll explain.)
How can I safely try THC gummies? (We’ll give you some tips!)
It’s totally normal to have these questions and many others – especially when something is new to you. So, let’s talk about the new delta 9 THC gummies, how to try THC gummies so you feel confident and safe, and how these new gummies can be used properly to enhance your daily lifestyle and wellness needs. It helps to be prepared when you try cannabis edibles for the first time.
What Are Delta 9 THC Gummies?
First, let’s define what these are so you know if our new THC gummies are the right thing for you. (Psst. They are not the same as your friend’s pot brownies or your neighbor’s medical marijuana for chronic pain – but a wellness care product that takes advantage of some of the components found in hemp.)
These new THC gummies incorporate the higher potency of delta 9 THC with a full spectrum proprietary blend of hemp derivatives. The delta 9 THC is derived from hemp, making it federally compliant with the 2018 Farm Bill, and we ensure through rigorous testing that the THC content does not exceed the 0.3 percent THC by weight mandated by federal law.
Safety and consistency of THC content is monitored with regular testing of every batch by independent ISO 17025 certified labs. The quantity of THC in every unit per container and by container are both calculated and measured to ensure that they meet specifications, and we provide COAs to confirm the results.
Because we want you to know exactly what you are getting, the THC content is posted right on the product labeling. So there’s no confusion, no misconceptions, and no sneaky business.

Delta 9 THC: Benefits
You may already be familiar with the benefits of using various cannabinoids like CBD, CBG, and CBN to boost your endocannabinoid system and rectify endocannabinoid deficiencies. Using a variety of cannabinoids and terpenes also helps to create what is known as the entourage effect which offers a stabilizing effect to your bodily systems, improving various activities within your body. Many people find that using these products helps to boost mood, improve sleep, and create a sense of wellness and calm.
THC is also a component of Cannabis sativa, the plant where we get CBD and other cannabinoids. Recently, we’ve been sharing information on our blog to explain the differences between various strains of THC. Delta 9 is one of these strains of THC that is of particular interest for people who are already using CBD and want to increase certain benefits, for people who want to try THC specifically, and for a wider array of health and wellness applications.

THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the component in hemp that has a psychoactive effect and creates a “high” feeling. In the past, we’ve shared with you that this is not super-relevant to taking THC in your CBD products because of the low amounts included in most CBD products. Because of delta 9’s higher potency, however, we are changing a little of the language to be more clear: this particular type of THC, even at the legally controlled low levels, may still have some psychoactive effect. This makes it very different from taking your regular CBD products, even the full spectrum ones. Delta 9 is, simply put, stronger.
This is a good thing – if you know you need it and if you use it correctly to achieve benefits.
Delta 9 Benefits
Delta 9 THC has a lot to offer and for the right people it can be very beneficial. Some benefits include:
- Entourage Effect Boost
Greater entourage effect for your bodily systems. A more well-rounded plant profile used in CBD products has a greater wellness benefit to the user, stimulating and working with the endocannabinoid system to help balance and boost internal systems.
- Greater Calm
More calming and relaxing effects. Depending on the user, these feelings may be more noticeable. Some may even experience mild intoxicating effects.
- More Noticeable Physical Effects
Might make you sleepy, stimulate appetite, or have other physical effects you may notice.
- Cognitive and Mood Enhancements
Cognitive or mood effects can vary from person to person. Some feel it enhances mood, provides mental stimulation, enhances creativity, or is more calming. While others note more clear-mindedness, sharp thinking, and focus, it may have the exact opposite effect on others who may be more THC sensitive – muddied thinking, lower energy levels, sleepiness, or even paranoia. It really depends on your unique physiology and how sensitive you are to THC products.
Tips to Safely Try THC Gummies
Trying THC gummies for the first time can be a little stressful. Not knowing what exactly to expect can be daunting, but with these tips, you can try THC gummies with more confidence.
Consider the Side Effects
There are a few side effects to consider and most of them are mild, and you may not have them at all if you are already using CBD products on a regular basis. But be forewarned you may experience some of the following:
- Mild gastrointestinal upset, nausea, diarrhea
- Dry mouth
Before You Try Delta 9 THC Gummies
Talk with your doctor before using THC gummies. Your doctor is familiar with your overall health, health conditions, mental health, physical, and dietary needs. Some people are not good candidates for using delta 9 THC or any other kind of THC, and your doctor is the best person to make this determination for you.
If you are pregnant, nursing, or under 21 years of age, give the THC gummies a hard pass for now, until your doctor (or age) clears you for using them.
There are some warnings and disclaimers you need to know about and here they are in full:
- For adults over the age of 21 only.

May cause drowsiness. Do not combine with alcohol or medications. Please use responsibly and follow all suggested use guidelines.

Set aside some time to take delta 9 THC when you can observe how it makes you feel. Do not drive or operate heavy machinery or do any other type of “dangerous” activity that needs sharp motor skills, quick reflexes, concentration, or fast reaction. Because you may feel sleepy or even a little intoxicated, take precautions to avoid these things while you take your THC gummies for a test run.
How Many of the Delta 9 THC Gummies Should You Take?
It is highly recommended that you use a portion of a gummy the first time you try them. Then, you can observe and adjust the amount you need for the next time you take it.
Instructions for Use:
Start with a quarter of a gummy to gauge individual sensitivity. Increase by a quarter of a gummy until the desired effect is achieved, up to one full gummy. Do not consume more than one full gummy in a 24-hour period.
Observation and Adjustment
The first six hours are the most critical observation hours, but you’ll want to pay attention to how you feel for the 24 hours after you take THC gummies (or really any type of edibles with THC in them) for the first time.
Note how you feel mentally, cognitively, physically, and how it affects your mood. Use this observation to decide how to adjust the amount you take the next time.
