A few months ago Delta-8 and Delta-10 THC derived from Hemp was the new craze. Now they have found a way to legally sell Delta-9 THC. Delta-9 THC is labeled as only being legal in most states as long as it has .03% or less. This has really saved a lot of CBD companies from going broke because of the over-saturation of the market. Simply Hemp Shop is not ready to go down this complicated road yet.
I found this article that is very interesting:
Within the last several months, U.S. hemp companies have begun adding new products that feature a familiar cannabinoid: delta-9 THC.
These products, which have surfaced online and in stores, are being marketed as hemp-derived and federally compliant under the 2018 Farm Bill. While delta-9 is the cannabinoid that distinguishes hemp from its federally illegal counterpart, cannabis, companies that have begun selling these hemp-derived products—including Boston Hemp, LiftedMade, Exhale Wellness, Mr. Hemp Flower, and more—say their products remain under the 0.3% THC limit set for hemp.
Edibles are popular products in this market, with common serving sizes ranging from 5 to 15 milligrams of delta-9 THC per serving. Some products contain hundreds of milligrams of delta-9 in each package.
As these products begin to increase in popularity, so does the conversation of their legal status and whether they present a market opportunity for hemp businesses.
Companies have been able to create these delta-9 products by using the 0.3% THC limit to their advantage—they simply make their products weigh enough using other ingredients to remain within that limit.
Still, debate remains over congressional intent when legalizing hemp and how exactly a “dry-weight” basis is measured.
In September 2021, Hemp Grower spoke with two attorneys in the hemp and cannabis space to gather their insights on the legality of hemp-derived delta-9 products.
