How long does it take Delta 9 to hit?

How Long Does Delta 9 Take to Hit

For many of our customers, one of the most important qualities of any of our products is the onset time. 

This is especially the case for Delta 9, where users anticipate the psychoactive effects of the D9 THC to hit soon after taking the product. 

However, the answer to the question of how long it takes for Delta 9 to hit is more complicated than a number of minutes. In fact, there are multiple answers to this question. 

Onset Time for Delta 9 THC Depends on the Method of Consumption

What is most important to know is that there are different onset times depending on the method of consumption. 

There are scientific explanations for this, and we will cover why onset times differ across each method. 

Edibles Tend to Take the Longest

It can take some time for edibles to set in. The reason for this is that the food containing the D9 THC must first be broken down, so that the THC can then be absorbed. 

Though some edibles can kick in between 15-20 minutes, others can take a half hour, or even an hour and longer to hit. This is why you should never take more than you think you can handle, even if you have not felt the effects yet. 

Drinking D9 THC Has a Quicker Onset Than Taking Edibles

Drinking offers a quicker onset time. With our Hectare’s Delta 9 THC Beverages, you can expect an onset time of around fifteen minutes. 

If you are looking for a fast-acting Delta 9 experience, then you are sure to find it with our Hectare’s brand beverages. 

There are additional perks to drinking a Delta 9 THC drink. The first is that there is no hangover. Another one is that you get to enjoy the delicious flavor of a variety of beverages, which you can see below: 

Hectare’s Blood Orange 3 mg Delta 9 THC + 6 mg CBD

Hectare’s Goji Blackberry 5 mg Delta 9 THC + 10 mg CBD.

Hectare’s Dragon Fruit 10 mg Delta 9 THC + 20 mg CBD drink

Hectare’s Watermelon Berry 20 mg Delta 9 THC + 40 mg CBD

Sublingual THC Offers the Quickest Onset Times

Sublingual THC involves putting a drop, or multiple drops, of THC under your tongue. 

You do this because there is tissue under the tongue that rapidly absorbs chemicals such as THC. 

That quick absorption rate of sublingual THC makes it a clear winner for anyone who wants the THC they take to be fast-acting. 

Onset Time for Smoking Delta 9 THC

Lastly, we come to smoking. Smoking onset times tend to vary depending on the amount smoked and the person smoking. For many people, the effects kick in sooner than edibles, and perhaps even for beverages. 

The downside here, however, is that it is harder to discreetly enjoy smoking Delta 9. With gummies or D9 beverage shots, you can easily take in the Delta 9 THC on a night out. For instance, it is easier to take a gummy at a bar than smoke Delta 9 THC. 

Another issue is that it is hard to control your dose of Delta 9 when you smoke. With a beverage, you can take things sip by sip. You can also break down edibles into multiple pieces.
