Much debate is happening on the label of Delta 9 THC products and the claims you can make about them. Because there are many different medical marijuana products, it’s essential to understand what you’re buying and how it works with your body. If you’re buying a specific product, make sure it will benefit your condition or symptoms.
5 Essentials To Note On The Label Of Delta 9 THC Products
The label for any Delta 9 THC product will have a lot of information. One thing you should look for is the amount of THC contained in that product.
There are many different Delta 9 products, some of which contain more than others. It’s essential to know how much THC you consume, whether it’s through edibles or vaping oils. The amount of THC contained in your product is expressed as a percentage out of 100%. For example, a vape pen with 10% CBD and 5% terpenes would be labeled as 50mg total CBD content with 25mg total terpenes (25/50). It implies that there are 150 mg total cannabinoids and 75mg total terpenes per 1mL cartridge (150 + 75 = 225 x 1mL = 225 mg).
In addition to the total amount of cannabinoids and terpenes, you must know what product you’re getting. It can be challenging to discern whether a CBD or THC product is right for you, especially since many brands offer both options. If you’re looking for relief from pain or insomnia, consider choosing a product with higher levels of CBD than THC.
Lot Numbers & Expiration Dates
The lot number is used to track the product from beginning to end. It tells you where your product was made, how much THC it contains, and other details that help you know what you’re buying.
The expiration date indicates when your product will no longer be effective for its intended purpose. The date is crucial for THC products because they have a shelf life of only 12-15 months before their potency declines. You can find the expiration date on the label of most products shipped directly from our manufacturing facility in Canada.
The potency of a product is measured in milligrams per gram (mg/g) or milligrams per serving. It tells you the amount of THC in your product. It’s important to note that some products have more than one type of cannabinoid, which means they can have multiple strains and ratios of THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids like CBN.
The ingredients section of a product label is one of the most critical sections. It provides all the information required to determine if your product contains what you think it does. It’s also vital that you understand how to interpret this section, and we’ll walk you through some tips on doing so:
- Ingredients are listed in descending order of weight. It implies that the heaviest ingredient will be listed first, then the next heaviest.
- Ingredients should be listed by their common names (e.g., “THC” instead of “delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol). If a company does not include an ingredient in its ingredient list but does list its common name, you can assume that it has been included in the product in question.
- If an ingredient is under the tag “natural.” It means that it was derived from a plant. It does not mean that it is organic or non-GMO. If an ingredient has been modified using chemicals, additives, or preservatives (e.g., propylene glycol), these should also be listed.
A product containing an ingredient you don’t recognize should provide additional information to explain what it is. If this isn’t the case, you might consider looking elsewhere for your cannabis products.
Processing & Manufacturing Methods
It is essential to know how a product is made. The manufacturing methods used will impact the quality of the final product and can affect how it reacts with your body. Any time you are consuming products with cannabis, it’s essential to understand processing methods so that you don’t get an unwanted reaction or experience adverse effects from ingesting something that isn’t right for your body.
When reading through the label information on any product containing THC, you’ll want to look at “processing methods.” This section will tell you exactly what went into making this product: how they made it, why they made it in such a way (if applicable), and what kind of quality assurance procedures were used during production. It may be helpful for manufacturers to include specific details about their manufacturing processes—for example: “This oil was extracted using carbon dioxide” or “This extract was produced using ethanol.”
Pesticides & Contaminants Data
You might have noticed that most cannabis products come with a label that shows pesticide testing data. The Canadian government has required tests for all cannabis products since September 2018 after discovering that some pesticides exceeded the maximum allowable limit.
Pesticides are chemicals used to kill insects, rodents, and fungi on plants. Cannabis plants are also susceptible to pests such as spider mites or powdery mildew and require treatment with pesticides to avoid these problems. While pesticides may be present in your cannabis product, they shouldn’t exceed any established limits—and your product should contain none if it’s organic!
Suppose you’re worried about consuming pesticides from your weed (or even from other food sources). In that case, you can try washing away residue from produce before eating it by soaking fruits and vegetables in distilled water for 10 minutes before rinsing them under running water for 30 seconds–but do keep in mind that this method won’t remove all traces of harmful substances like heavy metals or arsenic!
With the growing popularity of THC and CBD products, it’s important to know what you’re buying and how much of it you’re putting into your body. The label on a Delta 9 product will give you all the information about the legally required product for marijuana edibles, so take it seriously!
