Are you a fan of THC products, but find that pure Delta 9 options can sometimes feel too intense? Or maybe you’ve tried Delta 8 products and prefer the milder, more relaxed effects, but wish they had a little more kick? Well, we’ve got something special for you: D9/D8 blended gummies.
At Laughing Buddha, we’ve created a line of gummies that combine the best of both worlds – the potent, euphoric effects of Delta 9 and the subtler, calming effects of Delta 8.
In this guide, we’ll take a deep dive into the science behind Delta 8 and Delta 9, explain how our blended gummies work, and share some of the reported benefits of this unique product.
Delta 8 vs. Delta 9: Understanding the Differences in THC Compounds
While Delta 8 and Delta 9 are similar in many ways, there are some key differences in their effects on the body. Delta 9 is a cannabinoid found in large quantities in marijuana plants. It is known for its powerful intoxicating effects that can leave users feeling euphoric and sometimes even anxious or paranoid (if taken in excessively high doses).
Delta 8, on the other hand, is less potent and produces a more subtle, mellow high. It has also been reported to have some unique therapeutic benefits, such as reducing anxiety and helping with pain relief. Our expert THC formulators at Laughing Buddha have blended Delta 8 and Delta 9 to create a line of unique products that provide the perfect balance of potency and relaxation.
Our D8/D9 gummies offer a euphoric experience without the overwhelming psychoactive effects of pure Delta 9, making it a popular choice among both seasoned THC users and those who are new to the world of cannabis and hemp-derived products.
What Is Delta 8 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)?
Delta 8 is a cannabinoid that occurs naturally in small amounts in federally legal hemp plants and is produced through a careful extraction and isolation process.
D8 and D9 share many similarities in their chemical structure and effects, but Delta 8 is known for producing a softer high than its more potent counterpart. Think of D8 as the more chill, laid-back sibling of D9 THC. Some studies have also found that Delta 8 has unique therapeutic benefits, such as reducing nausea, anxiety, and pain.
One research study found that Delta 8 was effective in reducing pain and inflammation in mice. Another study indicated that many users regularly take Delta 8 to help reduce anxiety and panic attacks. These promising findings suggest that Delta 8 may have a wide range of potential therapeutic applications, and are part of why it has become an increasingly popular ingredient in THC products.
With that said, it’s important to note that Delta 8 can still cause some intoxicating effects, especially when consumed in high doses. Some users have reported feeling a slight “heady” sensation or mild sedation, while others have reported feeling more focused and alert. As with any THC product, it’s important to start with a low first dose and gradually increase as needed to find the right balance of effects.
Here are some of the effects you may feel after taking Delta 8 THC:
- A Calm, Relaxed Feeling: D8 can help you feel more at ease and relaxed, which can be great for reducing stress and anxiety.
- Enhanced Creativity: Some users report feeling more creative and inspired after taking Delta 8 THC. This can be great for artists, writers, and musicians looking for inspiration.
- A Boost in Mood: It can also help boost your mood and make you feel happier overall. Consuming Delta 8 can be a great way to unwind after a long day and get in a better headspace.
- Heightened Senses: Some users report experiencing heightened senses after taking Delta 8 THC. It can make bland food taste great, music sounds better, and colors appear more vivid.
- Reduced Nausea and Vomiting: Delta 8 THC has been shown to be effective in reducing nausea and vomiting in some users. This can be great for those undergoing chemotherapy or suffering from other conditions that cause nausea.
- Pain Relief: It’s been found to have analgesic properties and may be effective in reducing pain. This can be great for those suffering from chronic pain conditions who are worried about the side effects of prescription medications.
What Is Delta 9 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)?
Delta 9 THC is the compound responsible for the heady, mind-altering effects that many people associate with getting high. When Delta 9 THC binds to receptors in the brain and body, it can produce a range of effects, from euphoria and relaxation to increased appetite and altered perception of time. However, it is worth noting that these effects can vary depending on factors such as dose, consumption method, and individual tolerance.
Studies have found that Delta 9 THC has a wide range of potential therapeutic benefits as well. For example, a clinical study found that Delta 9 THC can help to alleviate chronic pain in patients with conditions such as fibromyalgia syndrome.
Although Delta 9 THC has many potential benefits, it can also cause side effects in some users such as paranoia, anxiety, and short-term memory impairment. Regardless of what type of THC product you take, it’s always a good idea to start off with a small first dose and gradually increase it. That way, you can find the perfect dose that works for you without getting too overwhelmed or experiencing any unwanted side effects.
Here are some effects users may feel after taking Delta 9 THC:
- Euphoria: D9 is known for its ability to induce a sense of happiness and well-being. You may feel more uplifted and cheerful after taking it.
- Relaxation: It can help you unwind after a long day. You may feel more relaxed and calm, both mentally and physically.
- Heightened Senses: Taking a dose of Delta 9 THC can heighten your senses; colors might seem more vibrant, music and other sounds more vivid, and tastes more intense.
- Increased Appetite: Consuming Delta 9 can also stimulate your appetite, making you feel hungry even if you just had a big meal shortly before taking it. This effect is commonly known as “getting the munchies.”
- Pain Relief: Delta 9 has been shown to be effective in treating chronic pain. It can help alleviate discomfort and reduce inflammation.
- Improved Sleep: It can also help improve sleep. D9 might help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer, leading to a more restful night’s sleep.
Remember, everyone’s body is different, so the effects of Delta 9 THC may vary from person to person.
Key Differences Between Delta 8 THC and Delta 9 THC
Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC are both cannabinoids, but they have slightly different chemical structures. D8 has a double bond on the 8th carbon chain, while D9 has a double bond on the 9th carbon chain. This might not seem like a big difference, however, it can affect the way the two compounds interact with our bodies and the effects they produce.
The slight differences in the arrangements of the atoms in Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC can have significant effects on how they interact with the receptors in our bodies, ultimately producing different psychoactive and therapeutic effects.
Delta 9 THC is known for its very potent effects, producing a strong, psychoactive high that can be overwhelming for some users. In contrast, Delta 8 THC is usually considered to be less potent, producing a gentler and smoother high that some people find more manageable.
Both Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC have potential therapeutic benefits, but they may have different effects on the body. For example, D8 THC has been found to possess strong anti-inflammatory properties that have shown promise in alleviating pain and reducing anxiety.
Meanwhile, Delta 9 THC is well-known for its analgesic effects and has been shown to alleviate chronic pain, increase appetite, and reduce nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy. It has also been investigated for its potential therapeutic benefits in treating various conditions such as glaucoma, Crohn’s disease, and multiple sclerosis.
More research is needed to fully understand D8’s and D9’s effects, as well as any potential side effects and interactions with other medications. As always, it’s essential to consult with a healthcare professional before using any THC product for therapeutic purposes.
Delta 9 THC is still classified as a Schedule I controlled substance at the federal level in the United States, meaning it is technically illegal under federal law. However, some states have legalized marijuana for medical or recreational use, which allows for the use of Delta 9 THC within certain parameters.
Delta 8 THC, on the other hand, is legal under federal law as long as it is derived from hemp and contains less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC. Some states have still banned D8 THC or placed restrictions on its use, so please check your local laws before using it.
Both Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC can cause side effects such as dry mouth, red eyes, and increased appetite. With that said, D9 THC is known to produce more intense side effects in some users, such as anxiety, paranoia, and short-term memory impairment. Delta 8 is generally considered to be less likely to cause these types of side effects.
The Synergistic Benefits of Blending Delta 8 and Delta 9
There’s a reason why our talented formulators decided to combine these two powerful cannabinoids.
The “Entourage Effect”
When Delta 8 and Delta 9 are combined, they don’t just coexist in our bodies – they interact with each other in a way that’s greater than the sum of their individual effects. This is known as the entourage effect. It’s like the two cannabinoids are working together in our endocannabinoid system.
In the case of D8 and D9, the entourage effect means that the effects of one cannabinoid are enhanced and balanced out by the other. This can result in a more potent and enjoyable experience, with a smoother and more balanced high.
But the entourage effect isn’t just about getting high – it can also enhance the therapeutic benefits of how both cannabinoids work. When used together, Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC can create a more powerful anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effect, as well as provide more comprehensive relief from anxiety, nausea, and other symptoms stemming from certain health conditions.
Enhanced Potency and Balance
Delta 9 THC, with its psychoactive effects, has been popular among cannabis enthusiasts for its ability to produce an intense, euphoric high. This high can sometimes be overwhelming, especially for those who are new to cannabis use or have a lower tolerance.
Then there’s Delta 8 THC, which is known for producing a more relaxed high that is easier to manage. It has also been found very helpful in reducing stress, anxiety, and nausea.
By combining these two, Laughing Buddha has created a product that can provide the euphoric effects of Delta 9 THC, while also offering the milder and more chilled-out effects of Delta 8 THC. This can result in a more well-rounded and enjoyable experience for those who want to reap the benefits of both compounds.
Broader Therapeutic Benefits
As mentioned earlier, Delta 8 THC is known for its anti-inflammatory properties, which can help alleviate pain and reduce anxiety. Delta 9 THC has been shown to be effective in treating chronic pain, improving appetite, reducing nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy, and improving sleep in some patients.
By combining these two compounds, you can benefit from a wider range of therapeutic effects. The anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties of D8 THC complement the appetite-stimulating and sleep-improving effects of D9 THC really nicely. Plus, the entourage effect we discussed earlier further enhances the healing effects of other terpenes, flavonoids, and cannabinoids found in cannabis plants.
Reduced Negative Side Effects
Finally, blending Delta 8 and Delta 9 can also help reduce the negative side effects associated with high doses of D9 THC. Starting with a low dose is obviously important when using any THC product, but with a combination of D8 and D9, it becomes easier to find the right balance and potentially avoid unpleasant side effects such as anxiety or paranoia.
What Are D9/D8 Blended Gummies?
Blended Delta 8 and Delta 9 gummies are made by infusing a delicious gummy candy with a carefully measured dose of both Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC, resulting in a tasty treat that offers a well-rounded experience.
The precise dosage of each cannabinoid can vary depending on the product, but most blended gummies are designed to offer a synergistic effect that boosts the healing and euphoric properties of each compound.
Whether you’re looking to relax after a long day or seeking relief from a variety of health conditions, our combined Delta 8 and Delta 9 gummies can offer a convenient and enjoyable way to experience the benefits of both Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC. That said, these gummies are intended only for adults and must be used with caution, as the effects can be potent and long-lasting.
