What Are Delta 9 Edibles?
Delta 9 edibles are exactly what they sound like: edible forms of delta 9 THC! Although all of our delta 9 products will give you the compound’s classic kick, none do so as deliciously as our delta 9 edibles.
At Diamond, we offer a variety of flavors, strengths, and types of edibles, ranging from which chocolates to fruity gummies with a usual strength between 50mg and 1600mg.

What is Delta 9?
Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, or delta 9 THC, is one of many significant cannabinoids found in cannabis plants. Better said, delta 9 is the most popular compound to come out of cannabis since its discovery, competing only with its non-psychoactive counterpart, CBD.
Delta 9 is best known for its psychoactive properties; as a matter of fact, when people talk about the traditional weed-induced high, this is the compound responsible for their buzz. Its intoxicating nature is due to how certain receptors in our body’s endocannabinoid system react to delta 9.
The endocannabinoid system is a network of cell receptors that are highly responsive to cannabinoids like delta 9 THC. These receptors mainly inhabit the brain but have also been found in immune cells, the liver, and the lungs. It’s known to help with regulating and balancing key bodily functions, such as pain and inflammation reduction, as well as appetite stimulation.

We bet you’re thinking, “that’s great and all, but how does delta 9 make me feel?”
Well, some of delta 9’s properties include
- Insomnia relief
- Anxiety management
- Pain management
- Appetite stimulation
- Strong high
Although delta 9 has many proven benefits, it isn’t without its adverse effects. Delta 9 has been known to induce unpleasant reactions, such as panic and paranoia. Thus, the most important aspect of creating a positive delta 9 experience is understanding your tolerance and dosing accordingly—especially when it comes to edibles, which have longer onset times than other delta 9 products.
But wait, how is delta 9 legal?
A key piece of information regarding delta 9 is that it’s not always legal. Delta 9 is the main psychoactive compound in cannabis, but not all cannabis has been legalized. Hemp and marijuana are both types of cannabis, but one of them remains federally illegal.
Although these plants are both considered cannabis plants, the 2018 Farm Bill legalized hemp and created a legal distinction between the two. Under federal law, hemp refers to cannabis plants that contain 0.3% THC or less on a dry-weight basis, while marijuana refers to cannabis plants with more than 0.3% THC.
At Diamond, all of our delta 9 products are sourced using the highest-quality, American-grown organic hemp. Because our products are made with hemp and not marijuana, and therefore contain 0.3% THC or less, they are 100% federally legal!
Delta 9 Edibles vs. Other Form of Edibles
Delta 9 edibles are an amazing way to reap the benefits of delta 9, but that’s not all we have to offer here at Diamond CBD. In fact, we offer all types of edible cannabinoids that range in properties and potency.
Delta 8 is a naturally occurring psychoactive compound about half as strong as delta 9. It’s commonly associated with a mild, relaxing, and euphoric buzz. Our delta 8 edibles come in all shapes, sizes, strengths, and flavors, including chocolates, gummies, and even savory snacks!
Delta 10 is among the mildest psychoactive cannabinoids found in hemp to date, even milder than delta 8. It gives users a very mild but energizing and focusing high associated with bursts of creativity. While our delta 9 and delta 8 edibles are great for unwinding, delta 10 edibles are your delicious go-to when you need a boost at work or home!
HHC has a potency somewhere in between delta 8 and delta 9. Although it’s not as mild as delta 8, it doesn’t quite reach delta 9’s strength. The compound is commonly associated with a relaxing, sedative buzz perfect for unwinding after a long day, making HHC edibles a mouthwatering way to chill out.
THCV is around 25% as strong as delta 9. With barely noticeable psychoactive effects, the compound is known and loved for its role as a weight loss agent. Although it alone will not keep you fit and healthy, pairing it up with a healthy diet, regular exercise, and restful sleep will help you see results sooner. Our THCV edibles are the perfect addition to any wellness routine!
CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis. It has many proven wellness benefits, including relaxation and pain management, that don’t induce a typical cannabis high. Diamond’s CBD edibles are an easy, tasty way to reap all of CBD’s benefits.
Dosing Delta 9 Edibles
Because delta 9 is a moderately strong psychoactive compound, the right dosage is extremely important in order to attain a relaxing, positive experience with the cannabinoid. When it comes to cannabinoids, it’s always best to start low and slow and build your way up to the perfect high.
How delta 9 affects you isn’t an exact science; it depends on many factors, including age, weight, metabolic rate, and tolerance. This means that delta 9 affects different people in different ways.
A good rule of thumb, however, is to keep your delta 9 intake realistic in relation to your tolerance and frequency of use. This estimated guide can be divided into three main tiers:
Remember, these are only estimates, and there is no foolproof way to dose delta 9. Therefore, starting slow and building your way up from there is the best way to ensure no adverse effects—especially when it comes to edibles.
Because delta 9 edibles take longer to kick in than other methods like vapes or oils, some people may initially believe that they dosed too low and will continue to take gummies or bite more squares off chocolate bars seeking an immediate effect. Edibles can take upwards of an hour to kick in, so ingesting more delta 9 within that time window may result in a strong, unmanageable high.
Delta 9 edibles are also stronger and last longer than other ingestion methods, so you really don’t want to overdo it unless you’ve got eight hours to spare and hide under your blanket. Finding your perfect dose of delta 9 edibles may be somewhat of a trial-and-error process, but once you find your sweet spot, it will all have been worth it! Take it easy and take your time.
Different Types of Delta 9 Edibles Available
Our gummies come in sour, sweet, fruity, tropical, and even mystery mixes, meaning you can customize your delta 9 experience exactly to taste. Our chocolates offer a wide variety of milk and dark chocolates, making your delta 9 adventure worthy of a Belgian vacation.
All of our edibles will give you the buzzy properties of delta 9, and they’re all likely to take around an hour to kick in and up to eight hours to wear off. Which one you choose to try depends completely on your tastebuds!
How Do Delta 9 Edibles Work?
In short, delta 9 edibles work by being digested and subsequently metabolized by the liver. After being metabolized, the delta 9 reaches your bloodstream and brain. This is the reason edibles take so much longer to kick in when compared to smoking or vaping.
When smoking or vaping delta 9, the lungs metabolize the cannabinoids, and they reach your brain through your bloodstream, which usually only takes a few minutes. When eating delta 9, however, the edibles must undergo digestion and make their way to the liver for metabolization before they reach the bloodstream, which can sometimes take hours.
The liver is also the reason delta 9 edibles are so much stronger than other ingestion methods. When you eat edibles, they are processed in your digestive tract and metabolized by the liver, where THC is turned into 11-hydroxy-THC. Some estimates place this metabolite at five times stronger than THC, so when it finally reaches the bloodstream and brain, it’ll hit you around five times harder than the delta 9 THC you vape.
So, if you’re patient enough to wait for good things to come and want those good things to be even stronger and longer lasting than any other delta 9 ingestion methods, you’re definitely in the right place.
