The cannabis plant has been around for thousands of years. It has been widely used for its therapeutic and recreational properties. Throughout its existence, multiple useful compounds called cannabinoids have been identified from the plant.
Delta 9 is a naturally occurring cannabinoid best known for its potent uplifting and psychoactive effects. Despite being around for centuries, Delta 9 remains trending among cannabis lovers, and Koi provides you with a range of Delta 9 products that provide consumers with new, fun, and delicious ways to enjoy this traditional cannabinoid and, at the same time, experience its wellness and therapeutic effects.
What Is Delta 9 THC?
THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is a group of active compounds called cannabinoids that occur naturally in the cannabis plants. The cannabis plant contains several types of THC, such as Delta 9, and Delta 8 THC. When most people talk about THC, it’s usually in reference to Delta 9 THC.
Delta 9 is a primary cannabinoid best known for its potent uplifting and psychoactive effects. It’s also consumed for its other wellness and therapeutic properties, such as relaxation and calming effects, and is one of the more potent THC isomers available.
How Does Delta 9 Affect the Body?
THC works through a system found in every mammal called the endocannabinoid system (ECS). This system processes endogenous cannabinoids produced naturally by the body. The ECS has various roles in the body. But, its primary responsibility is to maintain homeostasis. The system maintains optimal hormone levels and balances, mood, memory, temperature, and much more.
The ECS comprises CB1 and CB2 receptors and enzymes that process the cannabinoids.
The CB1 receptors are found in the body’s nervous system and the brain. They are responsible for the uplifting experiences produced by cannabinoids like Delta 9 THC.
Delta 9 strongly binds with CB1 receptors to influence various bodily functions positively. It also influences various receptors in the body, including the serotonin system, which controls mood and a feeling of well-being in the body. THC also relies on this system to provide other potential benefits, like supporting digestive health and sleep habits. Through the CB1 receptors, it elicits the powerful, uplifting effects that many Delta 9 THC fans love.
Delta 9 also interacts with CB2 receptors. These receptors are spread out through other body parts, and help produce various therapeutic benefits at their respective sites, mainly discomfort support and immunoregulatory properties.
The ECS is made up of two components;
- Endocannabinoids – cannabinoids your body produces naturally
- Cannabinoid receptors are present in nearly every part of your central nervous system, brain, and many other areas of the body, including the immune system.
Endocannabinoids fit into ECS receptors like a key and lock. THC works the same way, temporarily replacing your own endocannabinoids with different effects.
Effects Of Delta 9 THC
Delta 9 THC produces a wide range of effects in different people depending on various physiological factors and the amount of Delta 9 you take. Some of the more commonly reported Delta 9 effects include;
When taken in high servings, Delta 9 can produce intensely relaxing effects. Most cannabis fans looking for this effect prefer to take Delta 9 in the evening after a long day to help them slow down and unwind. The relaxation effect is also accompanied by a sense of calmness that makes it easier to fall asleep.
Feel-good Uplifting Effects
Delta 9 THC delivers the best uplifting effects. Its uplifting and energizing effects are noticeable even in small servings, making it perfect for consumers looking for something to kickstart their day.
Soothing Physical Discomfort
Delta 9’s activity on the nervous system can help to tone down the perception of physical discomfort, making it easier to get on with your normal life. The uplifting effects of Delta 9 also help dull discomfort.
You might enjoy better quality sleep after taking Delta 9 THC. Delta 9 benefits, such as its calming and relaxation effects and soothing physical discomfort, can drastically improve your sleep pattern.
How Much Delta 9 Should I Take?
Remember that your experience with Delta 9 depends on the amount you take. Taking time to determine the Delta 9 servings that work for you is crucial in delivering the best experience and expected results.
Delta 9 servings vary depending on the individual. Various factors affect the amount of Delta 9 you need to experience the right results, such as;
- Age and weight
- Genetic makeup
- Health history and other health conditions
- Previous experience with cannabis and frequency of consumption
- Metabolism and how much food you’ve consumed before taking your Delta 9 THC
By considering these factors, you’re much closer to getting your Delta 9 servings right. Besides getting the right results, getting your Delta 9 intake right also prevents you from taking too much Delta 9, which can make your mouth feel dry and cause some light-headedness. However, these effects are mild and rare, often passing after some time.
If you are new to Delta 9 THC, we always recommend starting with a dose smaller than the serving size on the label and seeing how you feel. You can always increase your serving size later when you understand how you will respond to the effects of the product.
Is Delta 9 the Same as Delta 8 THC or CBD?
Although all three cannabinoids are naturally present in the hemp plant, they’re different. They share some similarities, but the range of effects they produce and the nature of their uplifting effects are different. That is why at Koi, we strive to provide cannabis fans with a range of delicious products from each cannabinoid to help you chart your own personal journey and identify the cannabinoids and products that best facilitate your wellness journey.
Differences Between Delta 9 and Delta 8
Delta 8 is another naturally occurring cannabinoid in the cannabis plant. It is a THC isomer that is mainly distinguished from Delta 9 by the position of its double bond, resulting in Delta 8 have a lower affinity for CB1 receptors and producing less potent psychoactive effects that have a clearer, and more energizing feel compared to those of Delta 9 THC.
Differences Between Delta 9 and CBD
CBD, or Cannabidiol, is another popular compound found naturally in the hemp plant. Like THC, CBD has enjoyed a lot of popularity for its wellness and therapeutic benefits since it hit mainstream.
Both CBD and THC are cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. However, CBD is more abundant.
CBD is the most abundant compound in the hemp plant and is best known for its therapeutic benefits without psychoactive effects. It is primarily used to promote overall wellness and appeals to cannabis lovers who don’t want to experience the uplifting effects common with Delta 9 THC.
Benefits of Delta 9
Besides the uplifting effects, Delta 9 also has other wellness benefits. Delta 9 can produce various wellness and therapeutic benefits such as:
- Deep relaxation and calmness
- Discomfort support
- Sleep support
- Appetite support
- Cognitive support (enhances creativity, concentration, and focus)
- Neuroprotective properties
- Anti-inflammatory support
The effects you feel after taking Delta 9 THC largely depend on the amount you take. Small servings generally produce energizing effects, while a high intake produces relaxing and calming effects.
The positive effects of Delta 9 THC are due to how it interacts with the ECS and the type of receptors it interacts with.
ECS CB1 receptors are located in the nerve cells in the brain, the spinal cord, peripheral organs, spleen white blood cells, urinary tracts, endocrine glands, and gastrointestinal tract, while the CB2 receptors are in the spleen, the tonsils, immune cells, and white blood cells.
By binding with these receptors, Delta 9 can positively support functions related to these areas. Depending on its interactions with the receptors and their location.
Koi CBD Delta 9 Product Range
Unlike CBD and Delta 8, Delta 9 only comes in select forms of hemp products. This is because of federal law dictating that hemp-derived products must contain no more than 0.3% THC by dry weight.
Heavier forms of hemp products, like edibles and gummies, can contain noticeable amounts of Delta 9 THC while still meeting this federal ratio requirement. Lighter weight products, like tinctures and vapes, are not able to contain noticeable Delta-9 THC levels without exceeding the THC restriction.
As a leading hemp brand in the US, we are dedicated to providing all cannabis lovers with quality, safe, and federally legal Delta 9 products.
Our Delta 9 product range is designed to meet these requirements while infusing delicious flavors like the other Koi products you’ve come to love. Our line of Delta 9 THC products includes:
Delta 9 THC Gummies
Our gummies come in different colors, shapes, and tropical flavors. Our Delta 9 THC gummies come in various THC concentrations to match your intake needs and deliver the desired experience. The gummies come in various delectable flavors such as Blue Razz, Strawberry, Watermelon, and more, so you have many options to choose from based on your palate preference.
How To Take Delta 9 Gummies
There's no science in taking Delta 9 gummies. The most common method of taking it is to chew the gummies. Gummies have lower Delta 9 bioavailability, and the onset of effects is longer because the contents of the gummy have to be completely digested.
On average, it takes anywhere between 30 to 90 minutes to feel the effects of taking a gummy. This might be affected by whether you’ve eaten recently. We encourage you to start with a small amount, see how the product affects you, and then take more if desired.
How Long Do Delta 9 THC Gummies Take to Work?
As with other cannabinoid-based edibles, Delta 9 THC gummies can take longer to kick in. Most people start feeling the effects around 30 minutes after taking the gummies, but it can take two to four hours before the effects peak. The prolonged onset of effects is usually because the THC has to complete digestion and reach the small intestines for absorption to begin.
If you want to experience the effects sooner, try letting the gummy melt in your mouth. This will help absorb Delta 9 through the walls of your cheeks and the area under the tongue for a shorter onset of effects.
While taking Delta 9 gummies orally means you wait longer for the onset of effects, the benefit is that you will feel the effects longer once they kick in.
Benefits of Taking Delta 9 Gummies
Gummies have several traits that make them the number one Delta 9 product among consumers;
With Delta 9 edibles, your taste buds will constantly be in a state of bliss from our many sweet and tropical flavors. With gummies, you don’t have to deal with the natural bitter flavor of the hemp extract. The sweet and fun flavors of the gummies make them a great option for new cannabis lovers who want to start their journey with the best experience.
As with other cannabinoids, dosing is a big part of getting the right experience and results from Delta 9. Consumption methods like inhaling can make it hard to determine how much Delta 9 you consume to maintain consistent and predictable results. But that shouldn't be a problem with gummies. Our gummies are pre-measured and specially blended to ensure they deliver the same amount of Delta 9 THC in every serving, even when you subdivide the gummy. Why not read our guide on Delta 9 should you take?

We recommend starting with a small serving and then slowly ramping it up as needed. Because Delta 9 can be quite potent, a serving of 5 mg is a good place to start for new users. You can slowly increase the serving as you observe how your body responds.
Delta 9 products can vary in potency, so read the product package to ensure you understand how strong a product is before taking any. Effects can last for hours depending on potency, the type of product you use, and how long Delta 9 stays in your body, which varies due to several factors.
