Legal Status of Cannabis

When derived from hemp, THC is legal.

When the Farm Bill of 2018 federally legalized hemp, it legalized all cannabinoids derived from hemp.

In turn, it increased research into numerous promising cannabinoids that were previously overlooked and led to incredible advancements in the cannabis industry.

Through this innovation, federally legal THC products were created. Now, across the country, you can purchase legal THC edibles. While they’ve exploded in popularity, many people still don’t understand why or how they’re legal.

What is THC?

THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid in the cannabis plant. When interacting with your body’s endocannabinoid system, it produces a variety of wellness benefits and psychoactive effects, including a high that can be both uplifting and soothing.

The Legality of Hemp and Marijuana

Hemp and marijuana are both forms of cannabis.

While marijuana is federally illegal, hemp was federally legalized in 2018. For a product to be considered a hemp product, it must contain a maximum of 0.3% Delta-9 THC.

Is Delta-9 THC Legal?

Unless you live in a state where marijuana has been legalized, Delta-9 THC is legal only when derived from hemp and when present in a product in quantities below 0.3%.

While that may sound like a minuscule amount, it actually can add up to be a potent dose in edible products. For example, a gummy that weighs 4 grams can contain up to 12 mg of Delta-9 THC.
