Delta-8/Delta-9 hybrid edibles are popular choice in the world of cannabis products for those who prefer not to vape. These gummies or candies (or any other delicious treat) are infused with a balanced mix of both Sativa and Indica strains of THC, so they are preferred for the balanced experience, i.e., the invigorating effects of Sativa and de-stressing effects of Indica.
One of the biggest draws of edibles is they are very discreet; nobody needs to know you are consuming cannabis. But that’s not all. When you smoke cannabis, it can be tough on your lungs. Edibles, on the other hand, are eaten and go through your digestive system. This means it takes a bit longer for the effects to start – usually, you are looking at about 30 minutes to 2 hours. But the trade-off is worth it because, once the effects do begin, they last for several hours longer than smoking or vaping.
Why Citric Acid?
If you look at the packaging of high-quality D8/D9 THC edibles, you are likely to see “citric acid” listed as an ingredient. Before you dismiss it, know that usage of citric acid along with a lack of other synthetic additives could be a sign of a more natural, cleaner product.
For the uninitiated, citric acid is one of the best natural preservatives. It helps keep the edibles fresh for a longer time by stopping mold and bacteria from growing. That’s right, it is a natural way to make sure your THC-infused eatables don’t go bad quickly, which is stellar for both the people making and buying them. Citric acid also adds a sour kick and masks the earthy taste of cannabis, making the gummies taste better. This is especially true for gummies that have natural fruit flavors.
Stability is key in THC so that it works just as well when you eat the edible as when it was made. Citric acid and corn syrup helps keep things in balance so that the THC doesn’t lose its punch over time.
Choosing Legal Hemp-Derived Cannabis Sativa
Sativa strains are known for their higher levels of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) compared to full-spectrum CBD (cannabidiol). THC is the main psychoactive component in cannabis – it’s what gives you that “high” feeling.
When you are choosing Sativa-dominant Delta-9 THC gummies, it means you are looking for a more active experience. It’s terrific for times when you want to be social, focus on creative tasks, or just need an energy lift. So, if you are planning a day out with friends or have some creative work to do, a sativa-based gummy could be just what you need.
Here are some of the most sought-after sativa strains:
- Green Crack
- Sour Diesel
- Jack Herer
- Strawberry Cough
- Lemon Haze
- Pineapple Express
- Purple Haze
- Durban Poison
- Amnesia Haze
- Blue Dream
- Super Silver Haze
- Maui Wowie
- Acapulco Gold
- Ghost Train Haze
- Island Sweet Skunk
Why does plant cannabis sativa make you feel more energetic? It’s mainly because of the specific effects THC has on the brain. When you consume sativa or a hybrid that’s sativa-dominant, THC interacts with your brain’s receptors located in areas linked to energy and mood. This interaction can increase your serotonin levels, a neurotransmitter also known as the feel-good chemical because it contributes to feelings of well-being and happiness.
This boost in serotonin is part of why sativa strains can make you feel more alert, uplifted, and just raring to go. It’s like turning on a switch in your brain that brightens your mood and energy levels. That’s why Sativa is recommended for daytime use or for activities that require a bit of a mental or creative boost.
Remember, though, that cannabis affects everyone differently. While many people might feel ready to ride the lightening (so to speak) by sativa, others might have a different experience. Exactly how it makes you feel will depend on your personal chemistry, the specific strain, and the environment when you consume it. What works for one person might not for another.
