To understand the issue of hemp products that contain less than 0.3 percent of delta-9 THC, yet are still intoxicating, let's look at some examples. A 60-gram energy bar can contain up to 180 mg of delta-9 THC if it is limited to a THC concentration of 0.3 percent by weight. On the other hand, regulated cannabis-based edible products can normally only be sold in a single serving of no more than 10 mg, with a limit of up to 100 mg per package. However, a four-gram gummy hemp product could contain 10 mg of delta-9 THC and still be below the permitted concentration threshold.
Under federal law, delta-9 is illegal when obtained from marijuana plants. The DEA's Controlled Substances Act includes marijuana as a Schedule 1 substance with no medical value and a high addictive potential mainly due to its potent concentration of delta-9 and its psychoactive effects. While each of them affects the human body slightly differently in terms of how soothing they are or how they help regulate various bodily functions, THC Delta 9 is considered the most potent isomer of THC. THCa molecules from living hemp plants are naturally converted into THC Delta 9 molecules during the extraction and drying process.
Delta 9 THC may be beneficial for those who need an extra dose of calm and support for their health needs, fitness goals and quality of life. Many states require users to be 21 years of age or older to purchase or use any type of CBD product, with or without THC, including those containing THC Delta 9.While Delta 9 THC products are federally legal under certain conditions, state laws must also be taken into consideration. The legal challenges faced by Delta 9 THC are likely similar to those that affect all THC-related CBD products, since it is the most commonly used form of THC among health and wellness enthusiasts.
