Over the past several years, the variety of cannabis products has grown exponentially. One of the most popular choices for THC lovers is the Delta 9 gummy. People enjoy Delta 9 gummies because they offer a delicious and convenient way of feeling the effects of THC. Furthermore, edibles such as gummies are a safer alternative to products that involve inhaling potentially dangerous substances into your lungs. This is why gummies are a great option for people who wish to manage their pain, reduce their stress levels, or simply enjoy themselves safely.
If you are new to Delta 9 gummies, you might have some questions. The most common questions for newcomers are about how long their effects last. To answer this question, we need to consider several key factors.
Why Do Delta 9 Gummies Make You High?
The active component in Delta 9 THC gummies is the cannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol. We’ve written an entire introductory blog post about Delta 9 THC, so if you want to start with the basics, be sure to check out this: What is Delta 9 THC? THC is the same compound responsible for the high that people associate with marijuana. However, traditional marijuana can often have highly variable amounts of THC.
Many people prefer Delta 9 gummies because their THC levels are far more consistent. Furthermore, the amount of THC in Delta 9 gummies tends to be lower than what you would find in marijuana. The consistency you can find in regulated products, as in edibles you make at home, can give you far more control over how much THC you choose to take into your system.
Factors Affecting How Long Your Delta 9 High Will Last
The high you experience from Delta 9 gummies varies from other Delta 9 highs for a few different reasons. The main difference between a high from edibles and a high from products you inhale is that your digestive system metabolizes edibles more slowly. This means that your high does not kick in as suddenly or powerfully. However, this means that the THC levels within your system will remain more consistent, and the effects will linger for a greater amount of time.
The intensity and duration of your high will also depend on the amount of Delta 9 in the gummies you use, how many gummies you eat, whether your stomach is full or empty, and whether you use any other substances, such as alcohol, at the same time.
Other factors that will influence your high include:
- How often you take Delta 9
- Your body’s metabolic rate
- Your body’s fat content
- Your individual sensitivity to THC
Depending on these variables, the effects of Delta 9 gummies might last for a few hours or a few days.
