Medusa has formulated their very own knockout gummies. Mamba Melon is a delicious treat reminiscent of the best tasting watermelon you’ve ever encountered. Perfect for the watermelon aficionados out there, Mamba Melon is an absolute delight. When you bite into this delectable gummy, it is like a bowl full of freshly sliced and fully ripened juicy watermelon that will have you coming back for more with each bite until you’ve completely obliterated your serving.
Watermelon is such a fascinating fruit. So below are a few fun top 5 facts about watermelon.
- Watermelon is actually considered a fruit and a vegetable as they are related to a family of gourds like cucumber, squash and pumpkin.
- Watermelons contain 92% water.
- They come in a whopping 1200 different varieties.
- Japanese farmers grow them in odd shapes and sell them for as much as $100 or more.
- It’s the official state vegetable of Oklahoma.
All Medusa gummies contain 100mg of THC-O, Delta 8 THC live resin and THC-P with a total of 2000mg per container. All cannabinoids are derived from 100% USA grown hemp with less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC. Each gummy also contains botanical derived terpenes. All THC-O, Δ8 and THC-P oil is extracted and infused in the edible gummy to deliver a dependable and steady dose.
If you have never experienced edible D8, try half a dose by apportioning each gummy in half and eat only one half at a time. Once consumed, wait 90 minutes for effect. Then gauge whether the second half of the gummy will be necessary for beneficial effects.
What Is THC-O-Acetate?
THC-O-Acetate is one of many known cannabinoids. It is considered a chemical compound in its simplest form that has the ability to attach itself to the receptors in the Endocannabinoid system in the human body.
THC-O-Acetate is also known to be referred to as THC Acetate, THC-O, as well as ATHC. But it is most commonly referred to as THC-O or ATHC. It is important to not confuse ATHC with THCa. THCa is a tetrahydrocannabinolic acid, which is a parent molecule to THC.
The major difference between the ATHC and THCa is that the “A” in ATHC is for acetate and the “a” in THCa is for acid. THCa naturally occurs in raw cannabis and converts to THC through a process known as decarboxylation. ATHC is not a naturally occurring cannabinoid and can only be made in a laboratory setting.
To process THC-O all other beneficial compounds, terpenes and flavonoids are removed and an isolate with no flavor or aroma is the result. THC-O in this unnatural state is typically a brown liquid and is referred to as an “analog” of its original compound form, which is THC.
The major difference between THC and THC-O is the acetate molecule that THC lacks. The addition of this new molecule to the compound structure makes the THC molecule stronger.
THC-O is absorbed and filtered by the liver in the same way as any other cannabinoid that goes into your body. However, THC-O molecules are much more potent than smoked, vaped, dabbed or orally consumed THC. So despite how the body filters the molecules, the portion that is able to travel beyond the brain barrier will provide a very strong experience.
If you do not have any experience with THC-O, it is recommended that you start with a very small dose and increase dosages slowly to test your comfort levels. The experience that users have often reported after consuming THC-O is akin to a hallucinogenic experience induced by psilocybin.
What is THCP?
Phytocannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids are the main beneficial compounds found in the cannabis plant. Phytocannabinoids are better known as cannabinoids. “Phyto” simply means “derived from plants”. Cannabinoids interact and bind to terpenes and flavonoids. The greatest concentration of cannabinoids are found in the cannabis plant resin or trichomes.
THCP is one of the hundreds of compounds that the cannabis plant produces in their resin filled trichomes. Only you may not have heard of it due to the fact that it has only recently been discovered by an Italian research team in 2019 while analyzing a medicinal cannabis strain named FM2.
What is Delta 8 THC?
Cannabinoids are chemical compounds secreted from cannabis plants as resin. They have the ability to interact with our body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Delta 8 THC is a cannabinoid that occurs in much smaller concentrations than most other cannabinoids.
Delta 8 is an isomer that forms as Delta-9 THC ages and oxidizes. This process increases the stability of the Δ8 molecular structure so that it does not degrade as easily and lasts much longer over time.
Delta-8 THC and Delta 9-THC contain similarities in their molecular structure. Both contain double bonds, but D8 contains the bond on the 8th carbon chain and not on the 9th. For that reason, D8 and D9 THC react similarly within the Endocannabinoid receptors in the body as a result of their similar presentation of structure and properties.
D8 requires an intricate process of extraction, isolation, conversion, and refinement. With Δ8 there are benefits and effects to serve both medicinal and recreational consumers. Because D8 occurs in smaller concentrations, it’s common to see it sold in the form of distillates or edibles.
The compound Δ8 legally derives from hemp and contains less than 0.3% Δ9-THC in accordance with the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 (also known as the 2018 Farm Bill). Within the Bill, it states that all derivatives, isomers, and cannabinoids in hemp are federally legal provided that all final products contain less than 0.3% D9 THC.
- If you are subject to routine drug screenings, do not consume Δ8-THC.
- Each state has its own separate laws regarding hemp products. Please be aware of the laws within your state/province of residence.
- Psychotropic potency of Delta 8 THC will often vary. For this reason, please do not operate a vehicle after consuming Δ8 products.
- Consult your doctor before use.
