What is the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?
It's simply a legal one. They are the same species of cannabis plant, but the government defines "Hemp" as cannabis with less than 0.3% by weight d9-THC and grown by federal rules, whereas "Marijuana" is any amount of d9-THC grown anywhere else, including states that have legalized cannabis as Marijuana.
Is it legal?
Yes, it is legal in all 50 states! It is less than 0.3% d9-THC by weight and is derived from legal hemp grown under the regulation of the 2018 Agricultural Improvement Act. It is legal the same way hemp-derived CBD is legal, but this will cause an effect identical to a Cantrip that’s created from “Marijuana-derived” cannabis.
What is the difference between “hemp-derived” d9-THC and “marijuana-derived” d9-THC?
There is no difference from either the perspective of a chemist or your body. It’s just derived from a different legal classification of the same plant.
How strong is 5mg of d9-THC?
Just like one beer or one glass of wine is different for everyone, one 5mg dose of d9-THC will be, too. If you have a low tolerance, start slow, and see what it does for you. We recommend newer consumers start with our 3mg d9-THC, 2mg CBD beverages as the CBD can alleviate anxiety and reduce psychoactivity. 5mg of d9-THC is the highest serving amount allowed in Minnesota, so the smaller d9-THC dose may be more approachable for newer consumers.
When will I feel it?
The average reported onset for Cantrip beverages is around 11 minutes; it can be felt in as soon as 5 minutes or as late as 20 minutes. Effects typically peak 20-30 minutes after consuming.
How long does it last?
Cannabis effects last different lengths for everyone, but generally speaking it can wear off around two hours after you have finished enjoying your beverage.
