Cannabis products have had a huge growth in popularity as of late. One of the most popular and recognizable forms of cannabis is the gummy, or gummies. Delta-8 Gummies are made with hemp oil and contain no THC, while Delta-9 Gummies contain CBD (cannabidiol) and can be used for medical purposes to help relieve pain.
This blog will discuss the differences between these two types of gummies, what they are each used for, how they are made, and learn more.
How are Delta-8 and Delta-9 Gummies different?
Delta-8 gummies have been developed as an alternative to delta-9 gummies when a person is looking for a CBD high but does not want the psychoactive effects of THC. Delta-8 gummies have a long shelf life and contain no THC, so they are legal in all 50 states; however, they are not regulated by the FDA. Delta-9 gummies contain CBD and can be used for medical purposes to help relieve pain.
The difference between these two types of gummies is their ingredients and how they affect your body. There is no difference in taste and the price point is comparable ($1-$2 per candy).
Who should use Delta-8 and who should use Delta-9 Gummies?
Delta-8 Gummies are made with hemp oil and do not contain any THC, which means they are safe for anyone to use, including children. They are also great for people looking for less intense pain relief. Delta-8 Gummies only have CBD, so they don’t provide the same benefits as Delta-9 Gummies.
Delta-9 Gummies are made with CBD and come in various strains such as Charlotte’s Web, ACDC, and Harlequin. Patients often use these gummies to help reduce their pain or other symptoms that they have been diagnosed with. It is important to note that Delta-9 Gummies should only be used by adults.
How do you make a Delta-8 or a Delta-9 gummy?
To make Delta-9 gummies, you need cannabis plants that have a higher concentration of CBD than THC. The marijuana is then decarboxylated to create a product high in CBD. The oil is extracted from the plant material, and it’s combined with sugar syrup to create a semi-solid substance that resembles gelatin or gummi bears.
