Delta 8 Gummies: The Sweet Guide to Relaxation and Wellness

September 5, 2023

When it comes to the world of cannabis, there’s no shortage of innovative ways to experience the many cannabinoids it offers. One such cannabinoid that has been growing in popularity is Delta 8 THC. While many people are familiar with CBD gummies, the newer entrant into the edible market is the Delta 8 gummy. Here’s a comprehensive guide to understanding what these gummies are, how they’re made, and how best to consume them. 

What Are Delta 8 Gummies? 

Delta 8 gummies are edible candies infused with Delta 8 THC, a naturally occurring cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. These gummies offer a palatable way to consume Delta 8, masking the earthy taste of hemp with various fruity and sweet flavors. While they look like regular gummies, they carry the unique properties of Delta 8 THC, providing a mild high and a range of potential wellness benefits. 

How Are Delta 8 Gummies Made? 

Extraction: The process begins with extracting raw Delta 8 THC from the cannabis plant. Given that Delta 8 THC occurs in much lower concentrations than other cannabinoids like CBD or Delta 9 THC, it often requires specialized extraction processes, including fractional distillation. 

Infusion: Once the Delta 8 THC is extracted and purified, it is infused into a gummy mixture. This involves blending the Delta 8 oil with other ingredients, such as gelatin or pectin (for vegan options), sweeteners, flavorings, and colorings. 

Molding and Setting: The gummy mixture, now infused with Delta 8 THC, is poured into molds to give them their characteristic shapes. These are then allowed to set, either by cooling or drying, until they reach the desired consistency. 

Quality Control: Most reputable manufacturers will then test their Delta 8 gummies in third-party labs to ensure consistency, potency, and safety. This ensures that each gummy has the right amount of Delta 8 and is free from harmful contaminants. BioSpectrum Hemp highly values the safety and quality of each gummy, which is why they are a certified cGMP manufacturing facility and third-party test every product batch that is made.   

How Are Delta 8 Gummies Consumed? 

Consuming Delta 8 gummies is as simple as eating regular candies. However, due to their psychoactive nature, there are some guidelines to ensure a pleasant experience: 

Start Low: Especially if you’re new to Delta 8 or THC products in general, start with a half or even a quarter of a gummy. It’s essential to understand how your body reacts to Delta 8, as everyone’s tolerance can vary. 

Wait for It: Delta 8 gummies, like all edibles, take longer to kick in compared to other consumption methods like smoking or vaping. It’s common for effects to be felt between 30 minutes to 2 hours after consumption. It’s crucial to wait and not consume more in the meantime. 

Safe Setting: The effects of Delta 8 gummies can last several hours. Ensure you’re in a comfortable and safe environment, especially if it’s your first time. Avoid activities that require full attention, such as driving. 

Storage: Always store your Delta 8 gummies in a cool, dry place, away from children and pets. Most gummies are indistinguishable from regular candies, so it’s crucial to keep them labeled and out of reach of those who shouldn’t consume them. 

Delta 8 vs. Delta 9: Understanding the Distinct Cannabinoids 

The world of cannabis is full of intriguing compounds, each contributing its unique properties to the plant’s overall effect. Two of these compounds that have caught significant attention lately are Delta 8 THC and Delta 9 THC. Both are forms of tetrahydrocannabinol, but they differ in molecular structure and, more importantly, their effects on the human body. Let’s dive into the nuances that set these two cannabinoids apart. 

Chemical Structure: 

At the most basic level, the primary difference between Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC is a slight shift in their molecular bond. Both compounds have a similar chemical formula but differ in the placement of a double bond in the molecule: 

Delta 9 THC has the double bond on the 9th carbon chain. 

Delta 8 THC has it on the 8th carbon chain. 

While this seems like a minor change, it has significant implications for how each compound interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system. 

Psychoactive Effects: 

Both Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC are psychoactive, meaning they can produce a “high” or altered state of consciousness. However, the intensity and quality of their effects differ: 

Delta 9 THC is the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis and is responsible for the potent high that marijuana is famous for. Its effects can be intense and euphoric, inducing feelings of relaxation, heightened sensory perception, and in some, paranoia or anxiety. 

Delta 8 THC, on the other hand, offers a milder high. Users often describe it as clearer, less anxious, and less sedative. It’s seen by many as a middle ground between CBD (non-psychoactive) and Delta 9 THC. 

Medical Benefits: 

Both cannabinoids are believed to offer therapeutic benefits, some of which overlap: 

Delta 9 THC has been studied for its potential to alleviate pain, stimulate appetite, reduce nausea, and help with several other ailments. 

Delta 8 THC shares many of these benefits but may also have unique qualities of its own. For instance, it’s believed to be a more potent anti-nauseant than Delta 9 and can also potentially help with anxiety and panic disorders without the heightened risk of paranoia. 

Legality and Availability: 

Given their psychoactive nature, the legality of both compounds can be complex: 

Delta 9 THC is explicitly listed in many controlled substance lists and remains federally illegal in the U.S, although individual states have different stances on its medicinal or recreational use. 

Delta 8 THC, being less prevalent in cannabis plants and having milder effects, falls into a more gray area. It can often be derived from hemp (containing less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC), making it legal under the 2018 Farm Bill’s stipulations. However, its status is continually evolving, and some states have started regulating or banning Delta 8 THC products. 

Source and Production: 

Delta 9 THC is naturally abundant in marijuana plants. 

Delta 8 THC is found in much lower concentrations in cannabis. Often, Delta 8 products in the market are derived from CBD or Delta 9 THC through molecular rearrangements, making its production more complicated and costly. 

While Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC share many similarities due to their chemical lineage, they are distinct compounds with different effects, benefits, and legal implications. As research continues and the cannabis industry evolves, consumers will gain a better understanding of each cannabinoid’s role and how they can be best utilized for wellness and recreation. As always, if considering using any THC product, consult with a professional and stay updated on local regulations.
