U.S. Court Rules D8-THC Hemp Products Legal
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit has ruled that hemp-derived delta-8 THC is legal under the 2018 Farm Bill, in a case arising out of a trademark dispute in California.
Upholding a U.S. District Court’s decision, the appeals court found that the Farm Bill’s definition of legal hemp “expressly applies to ‘all’ such downstream products so long as they do not cross the 0.3 percent delta-9 THC threshold.”
The ruling is a victory for proponents of delta-8 THC, who have argued that the compound is a legal derivative of legal hemp.
