Forbidden Jelly HXY9-THC + THCM + HXY8-THC Live Resin Disposable by Delta Extrax Product Review

Written by Leah Johnson

In the rapidly expanding world of newly discovered psychoactive cannabinoids, it can be intimidating to pick which one to enjoy. Today’s product review makes that decision a little easier with their infusion of three hemp-derived cannabinoids: introducing the Delta Extrax inhalable called Forbidden Jelly HXY9-THC + THCM + HXY8-THC Live Resin Disposable!

These may be cannabinoids you’re not familiar with, but rest assured, they’re all hemp-derived and federally legal in accordance with the 2018 Farm Bill. The Delta Extrax brand is praised for their incredible creativity and potency of all their products, and it’s exciting to see what experience can be had with this particular inhalable. But before I get into that actual experience, I’d like to take a moment and see exactly what the brand has to say about the product in today’s review. 

What Does Delta Extrax Have To Say?

Delta Extrax has exquisite verbiage in describing this particular product, particularly in regards to the scent: smokey tobacco and bold cherry. With a name like “Forbidden Jelly,” I was expecting more of a berry or grape flavor, but cherry? My curiosity has been piqued! Flavored strains are typically described as piney, skunky, or earthy, but I’m seeing more and more companies offer fruit-flavored carts that actually taste as described. One can only hope that the cherry flavor does indeed come forth in a delicious cloud. 

The disposable comes with a unique preheat button, meaning it’s not simply an inhale-to-activate device. The chamber houses 3.5 grams of HXY9-THC, HXY8-THC, THCM, and Live Resin, and is described as an indica blend. Delta Extrax recommends the initial dosage to be “1-2 puffs to establish individual tolerance” so be sure to start off slow with the understanding you can always consume more if you don’t feel anything after the first few minutes. 

The effects are described as “a tingly, uplifting high that calms the body with contentment.” One of the more enjoyable side effects of hemp-derived cannabinoids is the body high, where various extremities bring a pleasurable pins-and-needles sensation. As with any indica high, you should expect a calm and subdued high that will most likely leave you feeling “stuck in da couch” and thoroughly relaxed. Now that the preliminaries are out of the way, it’s time to try this intriguing inhalable and experience the flavor and effects! 

Forbidden Jelly HXY9-THC + THCM + HXY8-THC Live Resin Disposable by Delta Extrax Product Review

The Forbidden Jelly disposable device came beautifully packaged in a white box with a stunning pink chrome on the top that looked like dripping jelly. The device itself was a lightweight slim pen with two elongated hexagon windows near the top. The oil in the chamber was completely clear with a very faint yellow tinge and extremely viscous to the point it did not move despite vigorous shaking.

The preheat button was cleverly designed as the Delta Extrax logo, with the same logo etched into the back of the device. The disposable, while not refillable, is rechargeable with a type-C charging cable (not included). When charging, the etched logo in the back doubles as a charging indicator that glows and pulsates a deep blue. Overall, the device was beautifully crafted with aesthetic details that were quite impressive. After letting the device charge for a bit, I held the duckbill mouthpiece to my lips, depressed the preheat button to warm up the oil, and prepared to take my first hit. 

Scent Prior To Inhaling/Flavor After Exhaling

A deliciously sweet and floral scent emanated from the duckbill tip before I had even taken the initial hit. I was reminded of the warm and inviting scent of green tea, and I fully believe I could have spent five minutes basking in that scent alone. Yet my curiosity for the flavor was too great, and I took my first hit. There was a rich hint of sweetness rolled up in a smoky exhale, followed by an absolutely incredible fruity aftertaste.

I’m not sure I would call it cherry, but it was definitely a noticeable flavor that strongly suggested a fruit jelly. There was a light burning in the back of my throat that was quickly eradicated with a quick sip of water. I ended up coughing lightly and sneezing twice on the first and second hits, but nothing that would have deterred me from vaping again. There was no lingering scent once the vapor evaporated, which I appreciated greatly. 

Time Elapsed to Feel Effects (time starts after first inhale, with a mention of how many hits were taken)

I was blown away by how flavorful the hits were and was strongly considering taking additional hits, but decided to heed the recommended 1-2 hits. Generally, it takes between 5-10 minutes for me to start experiencing any effects, but this particular inhalable kicked in shockingly fast. Three minutes after the initial hit, I distinctly felt the effects gradually kick in. After about twenty minutes, I was fully engulfed in the effects and quite comfortable. Time seemed to fluctuate fluidly and what seemed like an hour was a mere five minutes! 

Effects Felt During the High

I experienced a deliciously warm and drowsy sense of euphoria that left me feeling incredibly relaxed. My sense of taste and touch were heightened exponentially and I noticed that while I was slightly thirsty (my tongue clung to the roof of my mouth), water tasted incredible. I experienced a delicious tingling (that famous body high!) in my hands, feet, face, arms, and slightly in the center of my chest. My eyelids felt heavy and it was difficult to keep them open completely.

I felt as if a warm weighted blanket had been lovingly draped across my entire body and descended into a drowsy couchlock that was incredibly soothing. My mood felt completely peaceful and calm and I was surprised that the high was this intense with just two hits! I also felt like my ability to recall memories improved and I found myself pensively recalling fond memories from both recent and distant past. My vision was clear but it almost felt like I was swimming through a mental fog when I finally got up to go to sleep. 

Longevity of The High

The high kicked in quickly and time seemed to last for quite a while. Yet every time I looked at the clock, it seemed that only a few minutes had passed. I enjoyed the high for at least two hours, and remember immensely enjoying the sensation of darkness and warmth in bed. I fell asleep easily and slept well throughout the night. Upon waking, I felt a little groggy but very well rested. There was no lingering mental fog or cobwebs that prevented me from getting up and functioning normally. I was left feeling refreshed and ready to start the day, savoring the fond memories from the night before. 

Ease of Use

While the device seemed simple enough to use, there were a few curveballs that I’d like to mention. There is no type C charging cable provided, which is a bit of a nuisance since I discovered that the device needed to be charged prior to using. The preheat button caught me off guard at first, since I’m used to the inhalables being draw-activated. Also, you’ll want to hold the preheat button for a few seconds to warm up the oil before taking the first hit. This allows for a smoother inhale and more flavorful exhale. Lastly, the 1-2 hits is definitely something to start off with. I ended up taking a third hit on another test run and the results were the same, but more intense. I realize everyone is different when it comes to cannabis use, but too many hits of this device and you may experience some unwanted uneasiness and stronger dry mouth. 

Final Thoughts  

Forbidden Jelly HXY9-THC + THCM + HXY8-THC Live Resin Disposable by Delta Extrax has now earned the spot in my top five favorite inhalables. The flavor was an absolute delight to puff on and I enjoyed the distinct fruity sweetness on both the inhale and the exhale. The effects kicked in quickly and lasted surprisingly long. The high was filled with a sense of comfortable relaxation and calming euphoria, allowing me to enjoy the enhanced sense of touch and taste while time seemed to slow down. I fell asleep easily and woke up with slight grogginess, but nothing that ultimately hindered my starting and enjoying the day. For these reasons, I give this inhalable a full 5 stars.

In my next article, I’ll be renewing another product from Delta Extrax called Blue Cookies. This double cartridge pack features an intriguing 2g blend of HXY9-THC, THCM, and HXY8-THC Live Resin. With all of these new psychoactive cannabinoids gracing the market, it’s bound to be a euphoric experience that I look forward to sharing with you.
