Delta 9 Comes from Cannabis: 5 Facts to Know About Delta 9

We sell many products on and in-store at Bourbon Country Cannabis’ Nulu Location (819 E Market St Suite 101, Louisville, KY 40206). 

Though our CBD products are perennially popular, we have been seeing a lot of interest in our Delta 9 products from a wide variety of customers. 

Whether you are an enthusiastic user of Delta 9, have been thinking about trying it, or simply want to learn more about it, this blog will cover everything you will want to know about this popular product. 

What Are Delta 9 Products?

For the uninitiated, Delta 9 products offer users a high that is similar to a marijuana high, which is why it has grown to be so popular among people in states where marijuana is not yet legal. 

However, there is more to it than that, so read our five facts below to see why Delta 9 has become the product of choice for so many customers at Bourbon Country Cannabis. 

5 Facts About Delta 9

1. Yes, Delta 9 Is Legal

Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill passed by Congress, which legalized hemp, it is now legal to sell Delta 9 products. A loophole in the bill allows for the production of Delta 9 products, because Delta 9 is contained in hemp. 

Hemp is federally legal while marijuana is not because of the THC content: Hemp is below the threshold for 0.3% THC, while marijuana is above this threshold. 

2. Delta 9 Comes from Cannabis 

Many customers ask, what is the difference between hemp, marijuana, and cannabis? 

Here’s the simple breakdown: Both marijuana and hemp are cannabis, only different varieties of the plant. 

The main difference between the two is the amount of THC that is in each variety, which, as mentioned above, centers around how hemp is below the 0.3% THC threshold while marijuana is above it. 

3. Delta 9 Is the Key Compound in Marijuana 

THC is the main compound in marijuana that is responsible for its particular high. Here is what THC stands for: delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol. 

See something familiar in there?

It should be starting to make sense as to why Delta 9 products are so popular: THC is psychoactive, meaning it “affects the mind”, which in the case of THC, means it will get you high. 

4. Delta 9 Is Stronger Than Delta 8

Just as marijuana and hemp are different varieties of cannabis, so Delta 8 and Delta 9 are different forms of THC. 

Delta 8 is considerably less potent than Delta 9, which is why Delta 8 products are the ones we recommend for our customers who are looking for a compromise between the wellness effects of CBD and the psychoactive experience of Delta 9. 

That being said, customers who are interested in a fun recreational experience should definitely give Delta 9 a try. 

5. Delta 9 Products Come In Many Forms

Whether you are looking for Delta 9 gummies (including a vegan option) or Delta 9 chocolates, you can find just what you are looking for at Bourbon Country Cannabis, which also lives up to its name with Delta 9 Bourbon Balls

There is even a growing trend of Delta 9 drinks, which you are likely to see more of in the future.
