Are Delta 8 THC and Delta 9 THC Legal?




 Hemp-derived Delta 8 THC and Delta 9 THC is federally legal and legal in most states in the USA thanks to H.R. 2: The Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, also known as the 2018 Farm Bill.


The 2018 Farm Bill specifically made all derivatives, isomers, and cannabinoids in hemp legal, provided the final product has less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC. For reference, Delta 8 THC is an isomer of CBD, a derivative of hemp and CBD, a cannabinoid naturally found in hemp, and is ultimately contained in our extracts with less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC.


We often get asked about the Federal Analogue Act, which is part of the Controlled Substances Act, because Delta 8 THC is listed. This is where the 2018 Farm Bill is especially helpful, as it also includes an amendment to the Controlled Substances Act, explicitly removing all tetrahydrocannabinols found in hemp.


The relevant language from the 2018 Farm Bill is listed below, along with links to the original text.
