Frequently Asked Questions

Q- Will taking Blackhouse Botanicals Gummies cause me to fail a drug test?

A- Yes! ABSOLUTELY THEY WILL! A drug test doesn’t specifically test for THC, they test for the secondary metabolite that your body breaks THC down to. Both Delta 9 and Delta 8 break down to this same secondary metabolite.

 

Q- Will Blackhouse Botanicals Gummies get me high? 

A- They definitely have the potential to. The gummies do have 20mg of THC per gummy so depending on tolerance and how much is eaten you can get high. Ingesting cannabinoids affects everyone differently, so some people may need more than others to attain the same effect.

 

Q- How are Blackhouse Botanicals Gummies legal?

A- The Farm Bill that passed in 2018 states CBD products can contain up to 0.3%. Our gummies have been third-party tested and are registered with the Utah Department of Agriculture to confirm we are maintaining this requirement.  

 

Q- How many milligrams of THC and other cannabinoids are in Blackhouse Botanicals Gummies?

A- The CBG/D8 gummies contain 20mg CBG, 15mg Delta 8 THC and 5mg Delta 9 THC. The CBD/CBG gummies contain 10mg CBD, 10mg CBG, 10mg Delta 8 THC and 10mg Delta 9 THC.  

 

Q- Why would someone who already has their medical marijuana card want to use our gummies vs what they can get at a dispensary?

A- Simple: CBG and our deep belief in the entourage effect. CBG and Delta 8 THC are not going to be found commonly in dispensary products and we believe our blend of several cannabinoids gives better efficacy and control over effect to the user. A good majority of people who have their med card aren’t looking to “get high”, they are looking to treat their pain, anxiety, appetite issues, and many other things. Delta 8 has been shown to help many of these issues without making someone feel so high they can’t do anything else.

 

Q- What is Delta 8 THC?

A- Delta 8 THC is related to Delta 9 THC, only differing from the placement of one double hydrogen bond. Delta 8 THC is still considered psychoactive but only approximately 2/3rds that of Delta 9 THC, making the high much more of a body high rather than a head high. Our Delta 8 blend is perfect for those that are prone to anxiety related to Delta 9 THC, and those looking for a more relaxing body high without the mind fog.

 

Q- How is CBG different than CBD?

A- To fully understand the answer to this question you first need to know a few things about the human body. Each of us has an Endocannabinoid System which is found in the Central and Peripherial Nervous Systems. These systems are believed to be involved with regulating physiological and cognitive responses, various activities of the immune system, appetite, pain-sensation, mood, inflammatory responses, and many more. The two primary cannabinoid receptors in the ES have been identified as CB1 and CB2. CBG has been known to act directly with both the CB1 and CB2 receptors, in contrast to CBD, which works indirectly with the ES. For this reason CBG has been shown to better supplement ES function in some individuals for the aforementioned ailments as well as being a possible alternative to THC for pain relief due to it's direct anti-inflammatory action. 

 

Q- How much of a gummy should someone eat?

A- The answer to this question is going depend upon the person's tolerance for THC, the severity of their issue, and their metabolism. Our general recommendation is to start with 1/4 to 1/2 of a gummy. The average amount of time it takes to start feeling the effects of a gummy is about and hour to 90 minutes. A general rule of thumb is that it will take about the same amount of time to kick in as ibuprofen or acetaminophen. 

 

Q- How much of a Blackhouse Botanicals Tincture should someone use?

A- This answer is very similar to the previous question. The general recommendation is to start with a full dropper. Just like other supplements, it may take a few days for the cannabinoids to build up in your system and to start noticing the full effects. For this reason we recommend using the same amount for at least 5-7 days before making a change, whether it means a little less or more depending on how well the original dosage worked.  

 

Q- How should a Blackhouse Botanicals Tincture be taken?

 

A- A tincture should be administered sublingually, meaning under the tongue. When the tincture comes in contact with the mucous membrane beneath the tongue it is absorbed and then enters the venous system. After squeezing the dropper under the tongue, it should be held there for about 30 seconds to a minute to increase absorption. What is left in the mouth after this time should just be swallowed, it will then get digested through the gut.
