Over the last twenty years or so, a lot of smoking bans have been passed. In many places, there isn't a single bar or restaurant where you can light up. That can make it challenging if you like to enjoy a cigarette once in a while. To help you figure out smoking in a nonsmoking world, I am going to write several blogs on that topic. For example, i'm not old enough to remember when smoking was allowed on planes, but I'm old enough to hate the delay between when the plane lands and how long it takes to get outside. As a business traveler, I've found that a stick of nicotine gum can help. I'm also going to write about smoking alternatives like vaping. I hope you like these posts -- happy smoking.
With as quickly as the cannabis market is growing and changing, it can be hard to keep track of all the terminology used. So, when you are shopping for THC gummies, you may notice some terms and words you do not recognize on the labels. The better you understand these terms, the better able you'll be to choose a gummy brand and type that you really like. Here are some terms you may see on THC gummy labels.
Delta-9 is one form of THC. It is the most common form of THC and the one found most abundantly in cannabis. You'll see this on a lot more THC gummy labels now since another form of THC, known as delta-8, has become more commonplace. Delta-8 THC gummies can also be really relaxing and stress-relieving, but they're not quite as potent as delta-9 THC products.
Terpenes are aromatic compounds found in hemp. In other words, they are the chemicals that make hemp smell like hemp. Some terpenes have therapeutic benefits, and as such, some companies have begun adding them to their THC gummies. If you're using the gummies for pain relief, sleep, or anxiety, then a formula high in terpenes is likely a good choice.
Pectin is a thickener derived from fruit. It is used to give some gummies their texture. You'll see the word "pectin" on a lot of vegan gummies. Those that are not made with pectin are made with gelatin, which is derived from animal bones and is therefore not vegan.
This is a slang term that was traditionally used to describe cannabis that was very potent and loaded with THC. Some gummy makers have begun describing their stronger, more potent gummies as "dank" too.
THC distillate is basically pure THC that has been distilled from cannabis. It is a common ingredient in THC gummies. Gummies with distillate, rather than cannabis oil, tend to have a milder flavor since distillate does not contain any terpenes or other aromatic compounds from hemp. You may also see that some gummies are infused with distillate, which means the distillate has been mixed in. Others have been sprayed with distillate, which means they have been sprayed with the THC solution.
Now that you know about these terms, you will have an easier time selecting THC gummies that meet your needs. Contact a local THC gummies supplier to learn more.
