Hemp-derived THC is a type of THC that is extracted from industrial hemp plants that have been bred to contain very low levels of THC. In the United States, the legal definition of hemp is a cannabis plant that contains no more than 0.3% THC by dry weight. Hemp-derived THC is legal because it falls within this definition and is regulated under the 2018 Farm Bill.
The Farm Bill legalized hemp at the federal level, which means that products made from hemp, including hemp-derived THC, are legal as long as they meet certain criteria. These criteria include the requirement that the hemp is grown by a licensed grower and that the THC content is below 0.3%. In addition, products made from hemp must comply with all other relevant federal, state, and local laws and regulations.
Hemp-derived THC can be used to create a variety of products, including edibles, tinctures, and topicals. These products are typically marketed as providing the therapeutic benefits of THC, without the psychoactive effects typically associated with higher doses of THC.
It’s worth noting that the legal status of hemp-derived THC can vary depending on where you are located, as laws and regulations can vary between countries and even between states or provinces within a country. Therefore, it’s important to familiarize yourself with the specific laws and regulations in your area before using or purchasing any hemp-derived THC products.
