Industry growth and the discovery of new cannabinoids brought confusion in the complex legal realm of cannabis. Some states coped with the changes well (kudos to you, Florida!) — while others failed to meet progress with an open mind. North Dakota is one of the latter, where, unfortunately, hemp tetrahydrocannabinols like Delta-10 THC are illegal.
Is It Legal: North Dakota Delta-10 THC Laws
Unfortunately, Delta-10 THC is NOT legal in North Dakota.
What Is Delta-10 THC?
Delta-10 tetrahydrocannabinol (D-10 THC) is the newest hemp THC molecule and isomer of Delta-9 and Delta-8 THC. Researchers could barely identify this compound when they accidentally discovered it because the hemp plant doesn’t produce it in a significant (or any) concentration.
Regarding its effects, all we have for now is anecdotal. Users report feeling a mildly intoxicating “head” high that’s uplifting and energizing. They describe the intoxication as of weaker intensity (similar to Delta-8) and without the discomfort, anxiety, and paranoia typically caused by Delta-9 THC.

Continued, Is Delta-10 THC Legal in North Dakota?
North Dakota has banned the manufacture and sale of hemp-derived Delta-10 THC products.
North Dakota Governor signed House Bill 1045 into law on April 23 after North Dakota’s Legislature passed it almost unanimously. Initially, the bill aimed to align the state’s definition of hemp with federal law, but as it progressed through the legislative process, the state Attorney’s General Office brought amendments that prohibited the sale of tetrahydrocannabinols.
As of this writing, North Dakota prohibits state-licensed hemp growers and processors from producing or selling products made via “isomerization” or chemical conversion. In this group are Delta-8 THC, which was targeted by the bill, and Delta-10 THC. The state also amended the definition of tetrahydrocannabinols and included Delta-8 THC in the definition of THC.
The bill also amended the definition of hemp. Now in North Dakota, the term “hemp” also includes “any commodity or product using hemp which exceeds the allowable amount of total tetrahydrocannabinol.” In short, all hemp products allowed for sale and distribution in the state must contain less than 0.3% total THC. High-concentration THC products like Delta-10 THC made via chemical conversion of compounds are illegal in the Flickertail State.
Delta-10 THC and Federal Law
If you’ve been researching the legal status of Delta-10 THC, you might’ve ended up even more confused than before. Here, we’ll try to explain the main hurdles around the federal legality of this compound.
First of all, D-10 THC’s legal status on the federal level is gray because this substance is intoxicating. The issue with cannabinoids like Delta-10 THC is that they cause mild intoxication or a “high,” which was not the initial goal when legalizing a non-intoxicating plant like hemp.
The 2018 Farm Bill excluded hemp tetrahydrocannabinols from the list of Controlled Substances and the definition of marijuana on a federal level, which creates a legal loophole. At least, according to the experts defending this side of the argument. According to the U.S. Cannabis Council, the Farm Bill doesn’t legalize the production of psychotropic drugs — regardless of the materials used during its making, aka, regardless of they come from hemp.
Second, D-10 THC occurs in such minuscule amounts in the hemp plant that it has to go through the chemical synthesis in order to be produced in larger quantities. To produce it, manufacturers use hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD), which technically makes this compound a hemp derivative.
However, because it’s made through a chemical synthesis — with the use of catalysts — Delta-10 THC is a semi-synthetic cannabinoid. As such, the substance could be easily categorized as a fully “synthetically derived tetrahydrocannabinol” and illegal under federal law. The law doesn’t explicitly define the term “synthetic,” which adds up to the confusion. Therefore, until the feds further clarify the legal status of this compound, hemp-derived D-10 THC remains in a gray legal area.
North Dakota expressly prohibits the distribution and sale of hemp-derived Delta-10 THC. For now, this substance is illegal to buy in the Flickertail State, so it’s best to stick to hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) products with less than 0.3% THC.
No. North Dakota explicitly banned the sale and distribution of D-10 THC.
Because D-10 THC is illegal to buy in North Dakota, it’s best to avoid ordering it online.
No. Only residents of Delta-10 friendly states can order D-10 THC online safely and discreetly. Unfortunately, it would be best if you stayed away from ordering hemp THC products online in North Dakota.
Unfortunately, it’s not. Over a dozen states (including North Dakota) have expressly banned or restricted products containing Delta-10 THC, like Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Montana, Michigan, Mississippi, New York, Kentucky, Rhode Island, Utah, and Vermont.
