Can you get Delta 8 gummies?
Who doesn’t love a good gummy candy? Between gummy worms, gummy bears, gummy rings, sour, and sweet, you have so many options to pick from. And that’s not even beginning to touch on the different fruit flavors that gummies tend to come in. It is one of the most diverse groups of candies, not to mention one of the yummiest. It’s probably not surprising to learn that gummies are often used as a vehicle for a number of different things in being so diverse. After all, we’ve all seen gummy vitamins before. It’s really common to find delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta 9 THC) in certain gummies. But what about delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta 8 or D8 THC)? Does that come in gummy form? Let’s talk about it.
Some of the things that you need to know about Delta 8
Let’s start simple. Let’s give some definitions before we talk about the fun stuff (aka gummies).
There is a special kind of chemical compound that is only found in industrial hemp plants. They are called cannabinoids. There are over 100 different cannabinoids, including D8 THC and Delta 9 THC. The reason why cannabinoids are considered so special is that they are able to interact with something called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS is a group of receptors (specifically two kinds of receptors that are known as CB1 and CB2) in your body that helps it control certain functions and reactions such as mood and appetite. Cannabinoids are able to have an effect on those functions and reactions. Because cannabinoids can interact with the ECS receptors, but how they interact with those receptors can make a difference.
Delta 9 THC’s interactions with ECS receptors are the most famous. It binds with the receptors super tightly. This causes the psychoactive feelings of euphoria that are also known as a high. As you can probably guess from the name, Delta 8 is able to have a similar effect. Delta 9 and D8 THC are quite similar but have one slight difference in their structure. This difference causes Delta 8 to bind with the receptors, but not quite as tightly as Delta 9 THC. This way, it causes a feeling of euphoria, but it’s a bit different from Delta 9 THC’s.
Since we’re talking about feelings of euphoria, we should probably also talk a bit about the legality of D8 THC because it is a very common question. Technically, Delta 8 may be considered federally legal in the United States. This is a result of the 2018 Farm Bill. That version of the bill federally legalized most of the cannabinoids within the cannabis hemp plant. This included D8 THC. Some states have laws that have either continued to keep hemp illegal or have specified that Delta 8 is not legal. We would recommend looking up your local laws about Delta 8 and hemp to figure out if it’s legal in your state or not.
Okay, now that we’ve got all of that technical stuff out of the way, let’s talk about candy!
