There are a variety of products containing the psychoactive cannabinoid THC, including Delta 9 Gummies, a popular choice for THC lovers. Delta 9 gummies are tasty, convenient, and a safer way to get THC effects without inhaling other unwanted substances into your lungs. Delta 9 THC gummies are quickly becoming a go-to for those who want pain relief, those who need to chill out and yes, those who want a safer high.
But you may have questions:
- How high do you get?
- How long does the Delta 9 gummy high last?
- Is it safe?
- Will I fail a drug test?
- How many Delta 9 gummies can I safely take?
Why Do Delta 9 Gummies Make You High?
Delta 9 THC gummies can get you high because they contain the psychoactive cannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol, more commonly known as THC. The 2018 Farm Bill regulates the amount of THC allowed in any finished product either with or without other cannabinoids like CBD, CBN, or CBG.
One reason Delta 9 gummies are so popular is because the levels of THC are very consistent and typically lower than marijuana, which has widely variable levels of THC, some dangerously high.
Consistent THC levels in your gummy products, regulated and tested products we might add, means you have more control over how much THC you take and how often.
How Long Does a Delta 9 Gummy High Last?
The high you feel from Delta 9 THC gummies varies for several reasons. First, the gummies are metabolized rather than inhaled like with smoking or vaping. The high doesn’t “hit” as quickly and strongly but it’s easier to keep consistent levels in your system for more lasting effects.
There are other factors that affect your high, like the strength of the Delta 9 gummies you are using (how much Delta 9 THC is in the product), how much of the product you consume, whether you take it on an empty stomach, and whether or not you consume any other drugs, medications, or alcohol while you are taking Delta 9 gummies.
Other Factors that Affect Your High
- How frequently you take Delta 9 (It builds up in your system over time.)
- Your metabolism and body size
- Your sensitivity to THC
- Whether or not you additionally use THC Microdosing
The high from Delta 9 gummies affects each individual a little differently and could last for a few hours or a few days.
Once THC products are metabolized, THC is expelled from the body through the feces and urine, possibly for several weeks. Some drug tests only check for THC while others check for all parts of the cannabis plant. In either case, Delta 9 THC gummies contain THC and would result in a positive test if there is THC still in your system.
Using Delta 9 THC Responsibly
Though Delta 9 THC gummies are becoming a popular way to relax, it’s important to remember that they contain a controlled substance and you need to use them responsibly to be federally compliant with the law, but also to protect your health.
If your packaging says to take no more than one gummy per day, then follow those instructions which take the half-life of THC into consideration and let you know when it’s safe for you to take another Delta 9 Gummy.
