In Arizona, you can pretty much buy every cannabinoid product under the sun. The state has an established medical marijuana program and has legalized recreational cannabis since 2020. While these two branches are adequately regulated, there are some gaps when it comes to hemp-derived products, especially those high in THC.
Where does that put hemp-derived delta 9 THC gummies? Can you order them online if you live in Arizona? Let’s take a closer look.
What Is Hemp-Derived Delta 9 THC
As the name implies, hemp-derived delta 9 THC is THC derived from the buds and flowers of legal, federally compliant hemp. Hemp is the legal version of cannabis that got approved by the 2018 Farm Bill because it contains a low THC concentration of no more than 0.3% by dry weight.
Legal delta 9 is extracted from federally compliant hemp with no more than 0.3% delta 9 THC and is also infused in products in a concentration of no more than 0.3% by dry weight. On the contrary, marijuana-derived THC remains an illegal substance. But, regardless of the source of extraction, THC has multiple beneficial effects and can help with pain, inflammation, sleep issues, low appetite, and simple relaxation during the week.
Buy Hemp Compliant Delta 9 THC in Arizona
Unfortunately, you can’t legally buy our brand new Delta 9 THC gummies in Arizona.
The Mr. Hemp Flower gummies contain delta 8 THC (7.9mg) and are illegal in the Copper State. Under Arizona’s State Administrative Register and Revised Statutes, any form of tetrahydrocannabinol is prohibited. In addition, cannabis is listed as a Schedule I drug. This is confusing because Arizona legalized cannabis for recreational use, but only if sold in the form of a “synthetic isomer of delta 9 THC.”
If the law loosens up (fingers crossed), we’re excited for you to finally try our THC gummies. But, for now, you can order other whole-plant hemp products produced under the same quality standards (but different cannabinoid ratios). These products are more CBD-based and are 100% legal in the Copper State.
We highly recommend our best-selling hemp-derived gummies available in three different cannabinoid blends. Our gummies are a vegan-friendly formula enriched with an evenly-distributed whole-plant hemp extract. They are effective and an excellent replacement for vaping or smoking. You can buy our hemp gummies without a prescription in Arizona and enjoy a range of flavors and cannabinoids.
Depending on where you’re at in your cannabis journey and what you want to achieve, we offer full spectrum CBD gummies, full spectrum CBG gummies, and full spectrum CBN gummies. They all contain high concentrations of CBD (up to 40mg), specific cannabinoids, and primary and secondary terpenes.
You might have heard that CBN is the new go-to for sleep, so choose your item wisely based on the effects you want to achieve. The CBD/CBG blend is also great for sleep and anxiety, thanks to the terpenes infused in the product. Our products are rich in primary and secondary terpenes that are naturally present in the original extract.
Legality of Hemp Delta 9 THC in Arizona
Thanks to the Farm Bill and state law, full spectrum delta 9 THC gummies are legal in Arizona.
The state legalized hemp and hemp-derived CBD products under Article SB 1098, passed May 2018. Governor Dough Ducey signed the bill, establishing a program for growing, processing, and selling hemp. State law defines hemp as cannabis with less than 0.3% THC by weight and ‘hemp products’ as all products derived from hemp.
The Copper State is considered one of the friendliest regarding hemp and hemp-derived products. Although the law defines hemp broadly, hemp-derived products are fully legal and allowed for sale in Arizona.
You don’t need a prescription to buy hemp-derived products with less than 0.3% THC in the Copper State. As of this writing, the state hasn’t limited the types of CBD products allowed for sale, so you can buy gummies and other edibles.
The Arizona Medical Marijuana Act allows licensed patients to obtain marijuana-based items. Qualified medical marijuana patients can buy cannabis products derived from marijuana at licensed dispensaries.
Legal Delta 9 THC and Federal Law
The legality of hemp-derived products has been a subject of extensive discussion. Luckily, the legal status of hemp-derived delta 9 THC on a federal level is pretty straightforward. Under the Farm Bill of 2018, hemp-derived delta 9 that’s naturally present in the plant in a concentration of less than 0.3% can be lawfully used in products.
Hemp was legalized under the Farm Bill of 2018, which removed ‘THC in hemp’ from the list of controlled substances. Because delta 9 derived from hemp is no longer a controlled substance, it can be lawfully sold in products.
Federal law defines hemp as “the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis .”
Therefore, the new delta 9 gummies are legal because their THC comes from hemp. Although the THC concentration in the gummies is 10mg, it doesn’t exceed the federally set threshold. It’s important to know that THC derived from marijuana remains illegal federally.
While you can buy marijuana-derived THC in most states under their medical or recreational programs, checking the source from which the THC is extracted is essential.
