D8 And it’s Legality
Is Delta 8 Legal?
The compound Delta 8 is a cannabinoid found naturally occurring in hemp flower. This compound unlike CBD is a THC compound and in which it causes a psychoactive high. Unlike delta 9 it’s documented to not be as strong but this can differ from case by case basis. The legality arises from the 2018 Farm Bill which can be found here.
The farm bill states that hemp is defined as: “the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof, and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers thereof, whether growing or not, that has a total delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol concentration that does not exceed 0.3 percent on a dry-weight basis.”
As delta 8 is not delta 9 this establishes the legality of delta 8 hemp flower.
