A Beginner’s Guide to Cannabis Gummies

When you’re looking for the right type of cannabis gummy to try, the number of types and dosage sizes might seem overwhelming. Instead of just having the choice between a CBD gummy or a standard gummy made out of delta-9, as you would have in the past, you now can choose between a wide assortment of types. The explosion in CBD, delta-8, delta-9, HHC, THCO, and THCV gummies means you have plenty of choices when it comes to finding the perfect gummy.

Whether you’re looking for a mellow high, something that will put you to sleep, or a gummy that will take you on a euphoric trip, you should know what cannabis gummies are and the main types you can purchase. 

What Are Cannabis Gummies?

Sometimes called marijuana gummies or weed gummies, cannabis gummies are chewy and sweet candies infused with cannabis products like CBD, delta-9, HHC, THCO, or delta-8.

How Long Does It Take Cannabis Gummies to Work?

While you’ll start getting high almost immediately after smoking cannabis and reach your peak high after only a few minutes, cannabis gummies take a little while longer to start working. Unlike smokable cannabis that passes from your lungs to your bloodstream rather quickly, cannabis gummies need to be digested by your body’s digestive tract before they start to take effect. Generally, you can expect gummies to take around 30 to 60 minutes before they kick in, and the effects may last a few hours.

Aren’t Psychoactive Cannabis Gummies Illegal in North Carolina?

While standard weed, otherwise known as Delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol, is still illegal federally and in North Carolina, the 2018 Farm Bill made it possible for many other psychoactive cannabinoids to be sold throughout the country. Due to the 2018 Farm Bill, NC-based companies like Carolindica can sell psychoactive gummies made out of delta-8, HHC, THCV, THCO, and even some delta-9 gummies if they meet certain requirements. 

What Types of Gummy Should I Try?

When you’re looking for the perfect cannabis gummy, the type you’ll want to try comes down to a few factors: your experience level, the strength of the product, and the type of effects you’re looking for. To make sure you find a gummy that’s right for you, learn more about what you should expect from the main types of cannabis gummies below:

  • Delta-8 gummies: D-8 gummies are made from delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol, which is a hemp-derived psychoactive cannabinoid. While delta-8 THC is known to be less potent compared to standard weed, it tends to cause less anxiety and provides a “clearer” high. If you’ve found regular marijuana to be anxiety-inducing or too strong, you might want to try D-8 gummies instead. Besides providing a gentler high, delta-8 could potentially help relieve pain, loss of appetite, inflammation, and nausea.
  • Delta-9 gummies: While delta-9 is still illegal federally, North Carolina law allows for it to be legally sold as long as it follows concentration limits. When you take D-9 gummies, you can expect them to deliver more potent psychoactive effects than delta-8. As you might expect from other D-9 products, D-9 gummies can potentially increase your appetite, provide a feeling of happiness or euphoria, heighten your sensory perception, decrease your anxiety, and help you relax.
  • HHC gummies: HHC gummies are psychoactive gummies featuring hexahydrocannabinol (HHC), which is a naturally occurring substance found in cannabis. HHC’s effects are similar to delta-8, as it isn’t as strong as delta-9 and often produces a more clear-headed and energetic high. Since HHC is about ¾ the strength of delta-8, it’s another great starter gummy for those who want to try a psychoactive gummy but don’t want to start with anything too strong.
  • CBD gummies: If you’re not interested in a psychoactive gummy, you may want to try CBD gummies. CBD, or Cannabidiol, is one of the most commonly used cannabinoids due to it being non-intoxicating and non-psychoactive. Since CBD binds to TRPV1, it may help relieve inflammation, body temperature, anxiety, and pain. As a result, it’s often a great natural choice when you want to take advantage of cannabis’s potential health-benefiting properties without getting high.
  • CBG gummies: CBG gummies provide effects similar to CBD gummies and are non-psychoactive. Unlike CBD, many consumers report that CBG increases their appetite. Additionally, CBG binds to 5-HT1A serotonin receptors, meaning it may slightly raise anxiety while potentially reducing vomiting and nausea. If you want a mild high while receiving the potential benefits of CBD and CBG, you might want to try delta-8-infused CBD CBG gummies
  • THCO gummies: When you’re looking for a stronger high that may verge on the psychedelic, you’ll want to try THCO gummies. These gummies are made from THC-acetate, which is an analog of D-9 THC. As an analog, THCO is a semi-synthetic form of D-9 made from the use of acetic anhydride and sulfuric acid. In terms of strength, you can expect THCO to be five times more potent than D-8 and three times more potent than D-9. Its strength means you can expect more of a dazed feeling and a much stronger high.

How High Should My Dosage Be?

If you’re new to taking gummies or using cannabis products, you should start with a low dosage to see how you react. Rather than throwing yourself in the deep end with a high dose, it’s better to start with a 5mg or 10mg gummy and work your way up if you’re not receiving the types of effects you want.
