What’s Delta-9 THC?

Delta 9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the primary psychoactive component of the cannabis plant. It is a naturally occurring compound that acts on specific cannabinoids receptors in the brain and body, leading to physiological effects such as increased heart rate and relaxation. THC has been studied extensively for its potential therapeutic benefits, including pain relief, anti-inflammatory effects, and neuroprotection. It can also be used recreationally to produce euphoric or sedative effects.

Keep in mind that dosage is going to be different for different people. Many things can play into dosage, like age, height, weight, gender, diet, and of course, cannabis use experience. The right dosage depends on many factors. Every THC product should have the mg dosage listed on the label.

Start with the lowest dose possible, see what happens, and then adjust as needed.

It's important to consult with your medical doctor before you consider CBD or THC products of any kind.


How long do cannabis edibles take to kick in?

When it comes to Delta 9 THC edibles, the golden rules are “start low and go slow.” Depending on factors like metabolism, GI issues, time of day eaten and more - edible effects can take anywhere from 20-60 minutes (or longer) to kick in. To minimize any potential mistakes due to overconsumption or underdosing - we recommend taking a low dose initially; if desired additional effects occur after 45-90 minutes have elapsed then further doses may be taken as needed.
