What are THC Seltzers?
THC Seltzer is a cannabis infused beverage ready to drink! Sometimes referred to as “liquid edibles,” THC infused seltzers can provide you the “high” feeling similar to when you take traditional edibles. However, the high from a seltzer will hit you faster than traditional edibles because of how they are digested/metabolized. While also quenching your thirst! THC seltzers are often seen as a recreational beverage alternative to hard seltzer.
What is Delta 9 THC?
Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, commonly known as THC, is one of the many cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. It is the primary psychoactive compound responsible for the “high” or euphoric effects associated with cannabis consumption. THC interacts with the endocannabinoid system in the human body, particularly with CB1 receptors in the brain.
It’s worth noting that there are various forms of THC, and the “delta-9” designation specifically refers to the chemical structure of THC. Delta-9 THC is the most well-known and studied form, but there are also other THC isomers, such as delta-8 THC, which has similar effects but is less potent.
What is hemp-derived THC?
Hemp-derived THC refers to tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) that is sourced from the hemp plant (Cannabis sativa). Hemp is a variety of the cannabis plant that is cultivated for various industrial purposes, including the production of fibers, seeds, and extracts. Unlike marijuana, hemp is legally defined in many regions as containing low levels of THC, the psychoactive compound responsible for the “high” associated with cannabis use. However, many products will still have what is considered to be relatively high levels of hemp-derived thc, making them as strong or stronger than typical marijuana-derived thc products.
In the United States, for example, the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, commonly known as the Farm Bill, defines hemp as cannabis that contains no more than 0.3% delta-9 THC on a dry weight basis. This legal definition distinguishes hemp from marijuana. Hemp-derived THC is often used to produce a variety of products, including THC products, CBD (cannabidiol) oils, tinctures, edibles, and other hemp-based products. Some of these products, like the CBD, are not psychoactive because of the low levels of THC. The THC products however will produce the high effect.
Do THC Seltzers work faster than edibles?
The speed at which THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) or any other cannabinoid affects an individual can be influenced by various factors, including the method of consumption. THC seltzers or beverages that contain THC are designed to be absorbed through the digestive system, and their onset of effects can differ from other methods.
THC seltzers and traditional edibles have different onset times due to variations in how the body processes them. Generally, THC seltzers or beverages tend to have a faster onset compared to many traditional edibles. When you consume a THC-infused beverage, it typically goes through the digestive system, and the effects may begin to be felt within 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on various factors, such as your metabolism, whether you’ve eaten recently, and individual differences. The onset time for THC beverages can be quicker than some solid edibles because liquids are absorbed more rapidly in the digestive system.
On the other hand, traditional edibles, such as brownies or gummies, may take longer to produce effects. This is because they need to be broken down in the digestive system before the THC is absorbed into the bloodstream. Onset times for traditional edibles can range from 1 to 2 hours or even longer. It’s important to note that individual responses to THC can vary, and factors such as metabolism, body weight, and tolerance can influence how quickly or slowly you feel the effects. Always start with a low dose when trying any new THC product.
How do THC drinks & seltzers work?
THC edibles work by delivering THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychoactive compound in cannabis, to your body through the digestive system. When you consume THC through an edible, it goes through a process known as first-pass metabolism in the liver. Here’s a step-by-step explanation of how THC edibles work:
1. Ingestion: You consume the THC edible, which can take various forms such as gummies, chocolates, brownies, or beverages.
2. Digestion: The edible is broken down in your digestive system. Digestive enzymes break down the edible, and THC is released.
3. Absorption: THC, along with other cannabinoids, is absorbed through the walls of the small intestine into the bloodstream. From here, it is transported to the liver.
4. First-Pass Metabolism: In the liver, THC undergoes a process known as first-pass metabolism. During this process, THC is converted into its more potent metabolite, 11-hydroxy-THC. This metabolite has a strong psychoactive effect and contributes significantly to the overall effects of THC edibles.
5. Distribution: The bloodstream carries THC and its metabolites throughout the body, including the brain, where they interact with cannabinoid receptors (CB1 receptors) of the endocannabinoid system.
6. Onset of Effects: The effects of THC edibles take longer to set in compared to other methods of consumption, such as smoking or vaping. Onset time can vary but often ranges from 30 minutes to 2 hours or more, depending on factors like metabolism, individual tolerance, and whether you’ve eaten recently.
7. Duration of Effects: The effects of THC edibles tend to last longer than those from smoking or vaping because of the slower onset and the extended time it takes for the body to process and eliminate THC.
