What is Delta 9 THC?
Without even knowing, most people who are referring to “THC” are actually talking about the Delta 9 THC variant. That’s because THC stands for delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol. Within the cannabis plant, there are more than 500 substances and 100 different cannabinoid molecules, and THC is just one of them. And because marijuana and hemp are both part of the cannabis family tree, THC can be derived from either source. This is important to note because all cbdMD Delta 9 products are derived from hemp and considered federally compliant.
Compared to its cousins Delta 8 and Delta 10, Delta 9 can be found in much higher concentrations within the cannabis plant. This means that in order to create a product where there are lasting effects, Delta 9 THC can be naturally extracted through a simple process. On the other hand, Delta 8 and Delta 10 must be synthetically recreated to formulate products with lasting effects.
Since you are getting the most natural form of the Delta 9 THC, the products that are made with it tend to be less manufactured with fewer additives. These products have many of the same benefits of our original broad spectrum options, with up to 10 mg of THC. CBD and THC work together to create a “high potency full spectrum formula,” which results in a more well-rounded, enhanced experience.
Is Delta 9 THC Legal?
Short answer: when it’s derived from hemp in concentrations of less than 0.3% by dry weight, yes!
In 2018 Congress passed the 2018 Farm Bill, which removed hemp as a federally controlled substance. It also says that any hemp and hemp-derived products that contain less than 0.3% THC by dry weight are considered federally legal in the United States. By this definition, all of our Delta 9 THC products are federally compliant under the standards set by the 2018 Farm Bill. Let’s do the math:
- One cbdMD Delta 9 THC gummy weighs about 6 grams, or 6000 milligrams.
- If we take 0.003 (which is 0.3%) and multiply that by 6000, we are left with 18 milligrams.
- That means that according to the Farm Bill, a 6 gram gummy can contain up to 18 mg of hemp-derived Delta 9 THC.
- We formulated our Delta 9 gummies with only 10 mg of Delta 9 THC, which means the amount of THC we use in our gummies is well below the legal amount.
- But don’t worry, you’ll still feel it working!
We test each of our product batches at independent ISO 17025 certified labs (this just means that the lab is accredited for product testing, sampling, and calibration) to ensure quality and consistency. We also provide those test results right on our product pages so you can see what exactly is in each batch yourself.

Delta 9 THC Benefits
While THC has been widely known for its recreational uses, many people rely on it for its wellness benefits. For instance, initial and ongoing research suggests that it can be used to provide support in sleep quality, physical discomfort, balance, and overall mood. Similarly to CBD, Delta 9 THC interacts with your endocannabinoid system, or ECS. The ECS is known for regulating your body’s natural balance or homeostasis. That is why THC, like CBD, can have an effect on a whole host of things like sleep, mood, and appetite, because those functions all contribute to your body’s natural homeostatic balance.
The entourage effect happens when multiple different kinds of cannabinoids, like CBD and THC, work together within your body. It causes a “heightened effect,” meaning you will feel the benefits more than if you just took THC or CBD alone. The great thing about our Delta 9 THC formula, which we call our “high potency full spectrum formula,” is that it provides you with a full plant profile of cannabinoids and terpenes with up to 10 mg of THC so you get the best of both worlds. The Delta 9 product line is great for those looking for enhanced relaxation, restful sleep, and elevated moods.
