ARE DELTA-9 PRODUCTS LEGAL
Yes! Hemp-derived Delta-9 products with no more than 0.3% Delta-9 THC are federally legal in the United States. However, there are some very important conditions that you should know about. Delta-9 THC comes from cannabis plants, but there are actually two varieties of Cannabis: hemp plants and marijuana plants. The 2018 Farm Bill established clear definitions of these two plants that apply in every state. Hemp and hemp products cannot exceed 0.3% Delta-9 THC by dry weight volume. Any plant that goes over that limit counts as marijuana. Even though some states have enacted recent laws to legalize marijuana, it is still illegal on the federal level. That means Delta-9 THC is only legal when it comes from hemp and contain no more than 0.3%.
All of Hemp Beverage Company products meet this requirement because we only use hemp sources for our products and fully comply with the 0.3% limit. This allows us to give you pure, potent, and legal THC products.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DELTA-9 THC AND DELTA-8 THC
Delta-9 THC is the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis and is responsible for the plant’s most well-known effects. It binds to CB1 receptors in the brain and nervous system, producing a range of effects including euphoria, relaxation, altered perception, and increased appetite.
Delta-8 THC, on the other hand, is a less common form of THC that occurs in much lower concentrations in cannabis plants. Like Delta-9 THC, Delta-8 THC binds to CB1 receptors, but it is thought to produce a milder and more clear-headed high than Delta-9 THC.
It’s important to note that research on both Delta-9 and Delta-8 THC is still limited, and more studies are needed to fully understand its effects and potential medical benefits. As with any cannabis product, it’s important to use Delta-8 THC responsibly and in accordance with local laws and regulations.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SMOKING DELTA-9 THC AND INGESTING DELTA-9 THC
When Delta-9 THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is smoked, it is quickly absorbed into the bloodstream through the lungs, and the effects are felt almost immediately. Smoking THC can produce a quick and intense high, often characterized by a feeling of euphoria, relaxation, and altered perception. The effects of smoked THC typically peak within the first 30 minutes to an hour and can last for a few hours.
Drinking Delta-9 THC, on the other hand, involves a different process. When THC is consumed in this way, it is processed by the digestive system and absorbed into the bloodstream through the liver. The effects of eating THC can take longer to onset and can last for several hours. This delayed onset can sometimes lead people to consume more than they intend to, thinking that the dose was not strong enough. To ensure that you don’t take more THC than you are comfortable with, we highly recommend following the steps in our guide “How To Determine Your Perfect Dose” that’s included with every purchase.
The effects of eating THC are often described as more intense and longer-lasting than smoking THC. This is because THC is metabolized into a more potent compound called 11-hydroxy-THC in the liver, which can produce a stronger high. Additionally, the effects of eating THC can be more unpredictable, as the rate of absorption can be influenced by a variety of factors such as the amount and type of food consumed and individual differences in metabolism.
It’s important to note that the effects of cannabis can vary greatly depending on the dose, the method of consumption, the strain of cannabis, and individual factors such as tolerance and sensitivity. As with any drug, it is important to use cannabis responsibly and in accordance with local laws and regulations.
HOW MUCH DELTA-9 THC SHOULD I TAKE
The optimal dose of delta-9 THC can vary greatly depending on a variety of factors, including individual differences in tolerance, metabolism, and sensitivity. Additionally, the potency of cannabis products can vary widely, making it difficult to determine an appropriate dose. In other words, if you’ve previously taken other brands of Delta-9 THC products, your experience may be different than with a Hemp Beverage Company product. Our products are nano-emulsified which makes them much faster acting and more bioavailable (which means stronger).
Therefore, we strongly suggest you follow the directions in the booklet “How to Determine Your Perfect Dose” that is included with every purchase. A good starting point for dosing is 5-10mg of Delta-9 THC. This is a relatively low dose that can be increased gradually over time once you determine your sweet spot. It’s also important to be patient and wait for the effects to onset. You should feel something in 15 to 20 minutes. However, the effect will slowly increase over the next several hours. If this is your first time taking the product, you need to wait a day to see just how much of an effect you experienced. Taking too much too quickly can result in an unpleasant experience.
Ultimately, finding the optimal dose of Delta-9 THC requires careful experimentation and close attention to individual responses and reactions. Starting with a low dose and gradually increasing over time is a safe and effective approach for most people. However, it’s important to be aware of potential risks and side effects and to seek medical advice if you experience any concerning symptoms.
IS DELTA-9 SAFE
Delta-9 THC can be safe when used responsibly and in accordance with local laws and regulations. However, like any substance, it can have potential risks and side effects, particularly when used excessively or irresponsibly. It is therefore important to use delta-9 THC responsibly and in accordance with local laws and regulations. This includes starting with a low dose, being aware of potential risks and side effects, avoiding excessive or irresponsible use, and not driving or operating heavy machinery while under the influence. It’s also important to consult with a healthcare provider before using delta-9 THC if you have any medical conditions or are taking other medications.
WILL YOU TEST POSITIVE FOR THC

WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF DELTA 9 THC
Delta-9 THC is the primary psychoactive compound found in cannabis and is responsible for the plant’s most well-known effects. When ingested, Delta-9 THC produces a range of effects that can vary from person to person and depend on a variety of factors such as the dose, method of consumption, and individual differences in tolerance and sensitivity.
Some of the most common effects of ingesting delta-9 THC include:
Euphoria and relaxation: Delta-9 THC is known to produce feelings of euphoria and relaxation, which can be experienced as a pleasant, elevated mood and a sense of calm and tranquility.
Alterations in perception: Delta-9 THC can alter perception, leading to changes in visual, auditory, and tactile experiences. This can result in a heightened sense of sensory awareness or a distortion of reality.
Increased appetite: Delta-9 THC can stimulate appetite, commonly known as “the munchies,” which can lead to increased food consumption.
Impaired coordination and memory: Delta-9 THC can impair coordination and short-term memory, making tasks that require concentration or physical coordination more difficult.
Enhancement of Humor: Delta-9 THC can cause a sense of euphoria and altered perception, which can result in things being perceived as funnier than usual. It can enhance the subjective experience of humor, leading to an increased appreciation of jokes, comedy, and other forms of entertainment. This effect is likely due to the way Delta-9 THC interacts with the brain’s reward and pleasure centers, increasing the release of dopamine and other neurotransmitters associated with positive emotions.
It’s important to note that the effects of delta-9 THC can vary widely depending on the dose, method of consumption, and individual factors. It’s also important to use cannabis responsibly and in accordance with local laws and regulations.

CAN I MIX DELTA-9 THC WITH ALCOHOL OR OTHER PRESCRIPTION DRUGS
Delta-9 THC can interact with other substances such as alcohol and prescription drugs, and cause negative consequences. Here are some reasons why it’s not recommended to take delta-9 THC with these substances:
Increased impairment: Delta-9 THC and alcohol both have sedative effects on the body, and when used together, they can lead to increased impairment and cognitive dysfunction. This can impair coordination, decision-making, and reaction time, which can increase the risk of accidents or injuries.
Negative interactions with prescription drugs: Delta-9 THC can interact with prescription drugs, including those used to treat anxiety, depression, and other mental health conditions. These interactions can lead to increased side effects, reduced effectiveness of the medication, or other negative consequences.
Increased risk of addiction: Using delta-9 THC and alcohol or other drugs together can increase the risk of addiction or substance abuse. This can be particularly true for individuals who are already struggling with addiction or mental health issues.
Health risks: Combining delta-9 THC with alcohol or other drugs can also increase the risk of negative health consequences, including respiratory problems, cardiovascular issues, and liver damage.
Overall, it’s important to be aware of the potential risks of combining Delta-9 THC with alcohol or other prescription drugs, and to consult with a healthcare provider before using Delta-9 THC if you are taking other medications or have a history of substance abuse or addiction. It’s also important to use cannabis and other substances responsibly and in accordance with local laws and regulations.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CANNABIS DELTA-9 THC AND CANNABIS CBD
Delta-9 THC and CBD are both compounds found in cannabis, but they have different effects and properties.
Delta-9 THC is the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis and is responsible for the plant’s most well-known effects, such as euphoria, altered perception, and relaxation. Delta-9 THC works by binding to CB1 receptors in the brain and nervous system, producing a range of effects including mood elevation, altered perception, increased appetite, and impaired memory and coordination.
CBD, on the other hand, is a non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis that does not produce the same intoxicating effects as delta-9 THC. CBD is thought to work by modulating the activity of the endocannabinoid system, which plays a role in regulating a variety of physiological processes, including pain, inflammation, and mood.
While delta-9 THC and CBD are both found in cannabis, they have different effects and properties. Delta-9 THC is associated with the characteristic “high” of cannabis, while CBD is associated with a range of potential health benefits, including pain relief, anxiety reduction, and anti-inflammatory effects.
It’s important to note that there are many other compounds found in cannabis that can also have potential therapeutic benefits, and research is ongoing to better understand the potential medical uses of these compounds.
