We noted that Delta-8 THC is not technically illegal. Here, we need to get into some of the nuanced legal considerations that surround this substance.

First of all, there are plenty of cannabis companies that actively promote Delta-8 THC as a legal way to get high. Again, that’s technically true, but is still a point of debate for some.

For one thing, it’s not explicitly listed as an illegal substance. While federal laws, and some state laws, specifically ban Delta-9 THC, Delta-8 THC is never mentioned. More to the point, though, many proponents will cite the 2018 Farm Bill. This law legalized several industrial hemp products on a national level, including CBD.

The Farm Bill also includes some fairly nuanced positions regarding THC. In summary, the law says that hemp and cannabis-derived products are legal so long as they contain less than 0.3 percent Delta-9 THC.

With that said, some lawyers contend that Delta-8’s heyday may soon come to an end. That’s because the Farm Bill clears it only so long as it’s derived directly from hemp; most of the Delta-8 THC products sold today aren’t made from hemp, but rather from synthetically-altered CBD.

Some of these issues are a little fuzzy, and the legal future of Delta-8 THC remains a little uncertain. For now, though, many experts would argue that it is legal to purchase.
