What is Delta 9 THC?

Delta 9 THC (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid in cannabis. It’s the dominant compound in marijuana, and exists only in trace amounts in hemp. The delta 9 that we carry at Elyxr comes from the hemp plant, as marijuana remains a federally illegal substance.

Will the Delta 9 Products at Elyxr Get Me High?

Delta 9 THC is an intoxicating cannabinoid, so yes, it will get you high. How high you get depends on your tolerance, the amount you take, the product type you choose, and the strain of the product, if the product comes in different strains. The high is often described as euphoric, hazy, relaxing, and soothing to the muscles, all at once.

Does Delta 9 THC Offer Any Benefits?

Besides the fact that delta 9 can get you high, it also offers a number of potential benefits which have been studied over the last several decades, including:

  • Anti-nausea effects
  • Appetite-enhancing effects
  • Anti-inflammatory properties
  • Analgesic properties
  • Anxiolytic properties
  • Sleep-enhancing properties
  • Neuroprotective properties

What’s the Difference Between Hemp-Derived Delta 9 and Marijuana-Derived Delta 9?

Under a microscope, the delta 9 found in hemp and the delta 9 found in marijuana are identical. The same cannabinoid is present in both plants. This means that no matter which plant delta 9 comes from, the effects that you feel will be exactly alike.

Is Hemp-Derived Delta 9 Legal?

Federal law says that all hemp products that contain a maximum of 0.3% delta 9 THC can be sold legally. At Elyxr, we are fully compliant with the law when it comes to the delta 9 products that we make, along with all of our products. While 0.3% is a very small percentage, we enhance the portion sizes of our delta 9 products in order to provide a meaningful, effective number of milligrams of delta 9 THC in each serving.

Can I Overdose on a Delta 9 Product?

Delta 9 THC is nontoxic to humans of adult age. To date, there has never been a report of a person fatally overdosing on a delta 9 product. However, taking too much of the cannabinoid, or being a beginner to psychoactive cannabinoids in general, can mean that you get more intoxicated than you’re comfortable with, which can lead to feelings of anxiousness.

Can I Get Side Effects from Taking Delta 9?

Delta 9 THC is not considered dangerous, however while you’re actively high, you may get some mild side effects, which usually last for no longer than the duration of the high itself. These include:

  • Dry mouth (“cottonmouth”)
  • Dry eyes/bloodshot eyes
  • Reduced blood pressure
  • Anxiety/paranoia
  • Grogginess/drowsiness/fatigue
  • Confusion
  • Impaired motor skills
  • Increased appetite

Are the Delta 9 Products at Elyxr Third-Party-Tested?

All Elyxr products have undergone extensive third-party testing, through a state-licensed laboratory tasked solely with analyzing samples of cannabis. During this process, samples of our delta 9 products are tested for their purity, safety, legal compliance, potency, and their individual chemical compositions. We make our lab reports easy to find on our website, so that you can verify that you’re buying only the highest-quality delta 9 products on the hemp market.

Can Anyone Use Delta 9?

Delta 9 THC is an intoxicating cannabinoid, so only those who are prepared for a high that can last for between 1-8 hours should take it. Delta 9 is also only intended for adults, as children cannot tolerate the effects that it has on the nervous system. Pets should never, ever consume any amount of delta 9 THC, as the cannabinoid is a neurotoxin to smaller mammals.

What’s the Best Dosage for Delta 9?

We know that it can be tricky to figure out just how much delta 9 is right for you. Too little and you won’t really feel its effects, and with too much, you may be more high than you’re comfortable with. Fortunately, we offer clear dosing directions on all of our labels, so that you can know exactly how much of a product to consume at all times.

Can I Take Delta 9 with Another Elyxr Product?

Many people like to take delta 9 with another hemp-derived cannabinoid, to explore different cannabinoid combinations and personalize their high. At Elyxr, we actually carry a number of products that combine delta 9 with other popular hemp derivatives. There’s absolutely no reason why you can’t enjoy multiple cannabinoids at once, whether through our blended products, or through your own mixing and matching.

Can I Return My Delta 9 Product if I’m Not Satisfied?

We handle returns and refunds on a case-by-case basis, but generally, our customer service team is here to help.

Does Delta 9 Expire?

Delta 9 can expire like all hemp products, as it contains organic compounds. Generally, flower-based products have a shelf life of about 6 months, and extract-based products 24 months. But, failing to keep your product in an airtight seal, and in a dark, dry, and cool place like a cabinet, can cause the product to expire sooner. While expired delta 9 is not generally dangerous, it will lose its effectiveness.

Do I Need to Be a Certain Age to Purchase Delta 9?

You can only purchase delta 9 THC products if you’re 21 or older, as is the law. At Elyxr, we will not sell products to those below the legal age limit.
