Last year was a huge year for legal cannabinoids like delta 8 and delta 10 however many states caught on quickly to the legal high and banned the sale of these products.
New legal restrictions didn’t stop clever scientists and formulators and hemp derived cannabis companies from skirting federal regulations and coming up with a solution. Delta 9 Hemp and HHC products are going to be the most popular products this upcoming year. Not only due to their legality, but also because they are more potent than delta 8.
About Hemp Derived Delta 9 THC
Products containing Delta 9 THC are popping up in smoke shops across the country. Due to a legal loophole in the farm bill finished products can contain .3% total THC and still skirt under medical marijuiana laws. While .3% may sound like a rather low amount it’s not.
Kandy Girl, a woman-owned cannabis brand operating out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida toutes a whopping 10mg THC per gummy which comes in at .24% total THC. Just below the legal limit.
For those of you reading, that don’t know exactly how much 10mg is, it’s a standard dose of THC. Most edibles sold in medical and recreational MJ dispensaries sell edibles in 25mg 50mg or 100mg packs with 5-10mg as the base serving size, depending on which brand you’re choosing.
Unfortunately, due to the amount of THC in the product, is based on dry weight, you’ll only be able to get these in the form of Delta 9 Hemp gummies or other other types of candies, and liquid shots.
HHC stands for Hexahydrocannabinol. HHC is a hydrogenated form of THC and is currently legal in all 50 states. Unlike its predecessor delta 8 THC which is said to be only ⅓ as potent as THC. HHC is said to produce an indistinguishable delta 9 THC like high.
Because HHC is currently legal in all 50 states it’s being produced in Vape Cartridges, Edibles, Tinctures, and even being infused inside CBD hemp flower to make things like pre rolls and moonrocks.
