Delta 9 FAQ

All of our Dispensary-Grade Delta 9 THC performs at the exact same levels as marijuana-derived Delta 9 THC, giving 3CHI Delta 9 products the same effects and potency you’d find in a marijuana dispensary, but delivered to your door at a lower price.

What Is Delta 9 THC?

Delta 9 THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is a naturally occurring cannabinoid in cannabis (hemp and marijuana) and is commonly abbreviated as Delta 9 THC, Δ9THC, Δ9, D8, D9 THC, and D9THC. It is the primary active ingredient in marijuana that is responsible for the “high” it produces.

Delta 9 is an isomer of both cannabidiol (“CBD”) and Delta 8 tetrahydrocannabinol (“D9THC”), sharing a chemical formula of C21H30O2 and a molar mass of 314.464 g/mol.

How Is Delta 9 Legal?

Delta 9 THC products were made legal by H.R. 2: The Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, commonly referred to as the 2018 Farm Bill. It was specifically made legal when hemp allowed for all products that had less than 0.3% by weight. This means that edibles, which have a higher weight, can still contain enough quantities of Delta 9 THC to feel the desired effects and maintain legality because Delta 9 makes up less than 0.3% of the entire product.

What Are The Effects Of Delta 9?

The effects of Delta 9 THC vary per person, but the average but it is often reported as relaxing and euphoric. It’s motivating/energizing to some, especially at lower doses, and sleep-inducing to others, especially at higher doses.

It is important to always start with lower doses of Delta 9 to assess your own tolerance levels and slowly move up in dosing if needed.

Consumer Reported Delta 9 THC Effects

  • Mood boost/Happier
  • Calming
  • Relief for aches
  • Motivating
  • Better sleep
  • Increased desire for food
How Long Do The Effects Of Delta 9 Last?

The length of Delta 9 THC’s effects are very unique to the individual. As an average, Delta 9 edibles tend to last 2-6 hours for many users.

Delta 8 FAQ

Delta 8 product collection by 3 chi

3CHI sets the Gold Standard in Delta 8 with the purest Delta 8 THC in the market. Hemp-derived Delta 8 is immensely popular and typically allows users to remain more focused and functional than when using Delta 9.

What Is Delta 8 THC?

Delta 8 THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is a naturally occurring cannabinoid in cannabis (hemp and marijuana) and is commonly abbreviated as Delta 8 THC, Δ8THC, Δ8, D8, D8 THC, and D8THC. It’s an isomer of both cannabidiol (“CBD”) and Delta 9 tetrahydrocannabinol (“D9THC”), sharing a chemical formula of C21H30O2 and a molar mass of 314.464 g/mol.

It exists naturally and can also be produced by converting CBD or Delta 9 THC via a chemical reaction typically using heat, catalysts, altered pH environments, and/or solvents.

Delta 8 THC is an extremely viscous oil and exists in an “activated” state similar to Delta 9 THC, meaning it does not need to be decarboxylated to feel its effects.

How Is Delta 8 Legal?

Delta 8 THC was made legal by H.R. 2: The Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, commonly referred to as the 2018 Farm Bill. It was specifically made legal when hemp allowed for all derivatives, isomers, and cannabinoids of hemp that were not Delta 9 THC.

Delta 8 THC is federally legal and legal in most states, but it is not legal in all states.

What Are The Effects Of Delta 8?

The effects of Delta 8 THC vary per person, but the average experience could best be explained by imagining combining the best parts of CBD and Delta 9 THC. It is often reported as relaxing, mood-boosting, pleasantly euphoric yet clearheaded and not overwhelmingly intoxicating. It’s motivating/energizing to some, especially at lower doses, and sleep-inducing to others, especially at higher doses.

With appropriate dosing, users report feeling far more functional and active on Delta 8 THC versus Delta 9 THC. Delta 8 THC also has potential medicinal applications (pending further research), given its combined effects on CB1 and CB2 receptors vs. CBD and Delta 9 THC.

Consumer Reported Delta 8 THC Effects

  • Mood boost/Happier
  • Calming
  • Relief for aches
  • Motivating
  • Better sleep
  • Increased drive
  • Increased desire for food
How Is Delta 8 Made?

While many people want to call Delta 8 “synthetic” that’s not an appropriate name. “Conversions” or “derivatives” is the more appropriate name, as not only do these compounds exist naturally, but many of these cannabinoids will change into each other naturally with the application of heat, time, and light. In fact, it’s thought that all cannabinoids start as CBGA and naturally synthesize into other cannabinoids during the maturation of the cannabis plant. And a conversion of THCA to Delta 9 THC with the application of heat is a conversion performed at home by anyone who smokes marijuana.

This is all to tell you that conversions are a natural part of cannabis and an integral part of the cannabis industry and should not be feared in a general sense.

These reactions are also done to create other rare cannabinoids like cannabichromene (CBC), cannabinol (CBN), Delta 8 THC, and can even be done to create abundant cannabinoids like Delta 9 THC more cheaply than straightforward extraction.

How Long Do The Effects Of Delta 8 Last?

The length of Delta 8 THC’s effects are very unique to the individual. As an average, we see high purity vapes lasting 1-5 hours and tinctures and edibles lasting 3-12 hours. Larger doses generally create longer lasting effects, especially with tinctures and edibles.

A difficulty of judging the length of effects is that Delta 8 THC has a fairly natural onset and come down, so that it is sometimes hard for an individual to truly grasp where their “baseline” is/was before and after taking D8 THC.

This is especially true for individuals who do not feel “high” from D8 THC but just get a boost in mood. This mood change is sometimes unnoticeable to the individual themselves because of the natural onset and the user will think D8 THC had no effect. We’ve seen this many times in sampling sessions where the individual says they feel nothing, but someone they are with will then inform them how much more pleasant they’ve become in the last few minutes.

HHC FAQ

collection of hhc vapes by 3 CHI

Hexahydrocannabinol, HHC for short, is a naturally existing cannabinoid said to be at least just as potent as Delta 8 THC, with many consumers saying its effects are without the negatives of Delta 9 and marijuana. It’s perfect for individuals who may be looking for something a little stronger than Delta 8, but not full blown Delta 9 THC.

What Is HHC?

HHC is a cannabinoid similar to Delta 8. It exists naturally within the hemp plant in very small amounts. HHC does not contain THC.

How Is HHC Legal?

When the Farm Bill became law in 2018, hemp and all its cannabinoids and derivatives became legal across the country. Hexahydrocannabinol, or HHC is a naturally existing cannabinoid found in hemp.

What Are The Effects Of HHC?

Even though structurally different, HHC and THC act similarly to each other in effects. Comparatively HHC is commonly reported to have effects in between those experienced when using Delta 8 and Delta 9. Users often report an energetic and euphoric feeling with less paranoia in comparison to Delta 9.

How Long Do The Effects Of HHC Last?

The length of HHC’s effects are very unique to the individual. As an average, we see high purity vapes lasting 1-5 hours and tinctures and edibles lasting 3-12 hours. Larger doses generally create longer lasting effects, especially with tinctures and edibles.

A difficulty of judging the length of effects is that HHC has a fairly natural onset and come down, so that it is sometimes hard for an individual to truly grasp where their “baseline” is/was before and after taking HHC.

 The cannabinoid HHC is reported to be more potent than Delta 8, but less potent than Delta 9.
