Discover an Elevated Experience with Delta-9 THC

At Upstate Elevator, we’re dedicated to bringing the cleanest, and most innovative hemp-based wellness products to your day-to-day life. However, we understand the essence and compounds of hemp are more than just “CBD.” 

Upstate Elevator’s new line of Delta-9 THC-infused beverages are made with nano-emulsified, fast-acting hemp-derived THC for an elevated buzz without the booze. 

Let’s explore the depths of this hemp-derived cannabinoid and what to expect from our new line of Delta-9 THC gummies and beverages.

Defining Delta-8, Delta-9 & Delta-10

Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (∆9 THC) is the major naturally occurring psychoactive component in the Cannabis plant. It is found in both hemp and marijuana in high quantities, as opposed to Delta-8 (∆8) and Delta-10 (∆10) THC which naturally occur in minuscule quantities and typically must be synthesized to achieve enough to manufacture products.

While Delta-9 THC is widely known for its psychoactive effects, related cannabinoids Delta-8 THC and Delta-10 THC have made their way into the current buzz about cannabinoids. Let’s take a look at the different forms of THC and what we know about them.

Delta-8 THC (Δ8-THC)

As a minor cannabinoid naturally found in hemp and cannabis plants, Delta-8 shares similar psychoactive properties to Delta-9 THC. For instance, Delta-8 and Delta-9 share similar but not identical chemical structures. This slight difference makes Delta-8 THC more mild in its psychoactive effects. It naturally occurs in such low quantities that to manufacture products with Delta-8 companies typically need to create it synthetically in a lab.

Delta-9 THC (Δ9-THC)

As the common cannabinoid people associate with getting “high,” Delta-9 THC is known as the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis and hemp. Delta-9 THC is what people usually refer to when they use the term ‘THC’ without specifying a particular isomer.

Delta-10 THC (Δ10-THC)

Structurally similar to both Delta-8 and Delta-9, Delta-10 THC is a newly discovered cannabinoid that has gained attention for its unique characteristics. It’s a cannabinoid often found in smaller traces of both hemp and cannabis plants, with effects and properties that scientists and researchers are still sifting through.  

Why Choose Delta 9 THC? 

Delta-9 THC is popular for its psychoactive high, mood-boosting, and relaxation benefits. The effects felt from hemp-derived THC can vary, depending on one’s tolerance,  and other cannabinoids or terpenes that may be present. 

Although there is still much to discover around the topic of Delta-9 THC, in general, the potential benefits of Delta-9 THC suggest feelings of euphoria or relaxation. 

Synthetic vs. Natural Hemp-Derived Cannabinoids 

As the discovery of THC compounds such as Delta-8, Delta-9, and Delta-10 unravel more insight and information for researchers, many of our customers in the Vermont community and beyond are curious about the details and safety of Delta-9 THC.

Whether you’re shopping for gummies, tinctures, vapes, or infused beverages – there are two types of Delta-9 THC compounds, synthetically derived Delta-9 and hemp-derived Delta-9 THC.

Hemp-Derived Delta-9 THC 

Products containing plant-derived Delta-9 THC are extracted directly from cannabis or hemp plants. This method typically yields a full spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other beneficial compounds found in the plant, making it the best option for those seeking a pure, potent, and natural approach to Delta-9 THC.

Synthetically Derived Delta-9 THC

Because of the low quantities of Delta-8, Delta-9, or Delta-10 THC found in hemp plants, some manufacturers will synthesize these cannabinoids to create these compounds to meet consumer demand.  

While this method allows for precise control and consistency over the compound’s potency and concentration, many argue that these synthetically derived cannabinoids are missing the full-spectrum benefits and effects that come with naturally derived THC. This is why at Upstate Elevator all of our new delta-9 gummies and beverages are crafted with natural hemp-derived delta-9 THC for a pure experience. 

Where Is Delta-9 THC Legal?

The prevalence of synthetic Delta-8, Delta-9, and Delta-10 THC has caused concern across the country for safety and legality reasons. Depending on the state you’re in, your access to these hemp-derived THC cannabinoids and their regulations may differ. 

  • On the other hand, Delta-8 and Delta-10 THC occupy a legal gray area in some states, due to the 2018 Farm Bill legalizing all hemp production in the country.
  • Currently, customers in 42 states can legally shop Delta-9 THC, which is naturally derived from both hemp and cannabis. 

Alternatively in Vermont, it is not legal to purchase or consume synthetically derived Delta-8 THC or Delta-10 THC to further manage the risk of unsafe synthetic manufacturing.

Think of it this way, if you were taking vitamins or supplements for daily health  – would you prefer the vitamins that were synthetically made in a laboratory or those derived from natural plants, compounds, and ingredients?
