Mississippi stands on the prohibitive side concerning hemp and hemp-derived products. Though the state legalized CBD, there are many restrictions around products allowed for sale.
What’s the legal status of the brand new delta 9 THC gummies in the Magnolia State? Can you, by any chance, order them online? Let’s look at the hemp law around this product in Mississippi.
What Is Hemp-Derived Delta 9 THC
Cannabis is a special plant with a complex yet beneficial chemical profile. The plant contains over 100 different chemical molecules, including cannabinoids like delta 9 THC (or THC). We all know THC as the compound associated with the cannabis euphoria or “high.”
In marijuana, THC is the primary intoxicating compound, while in hemp, it’s allowed in less than 0.3%. THC is legal and can be infused in products in a concentration of less than 0.3% when derived from hemp compliant with federal law. Research shows that this compound has numerous benefits and can help with pain, inflammation, poor sleep, vomiting, and nausea.

Legality of Hemp Delta 9 THC in Mississippi
Full spectrum delta 9 gummies with less than 0.3% delta 9 are legal in Mississippi.
The state has one of the most restrictive positions towards hemp in the nation. Most bill proposals meant to legalize cannabis in the Magnolia State have failed. Therefore, the only allowed forms of cannabis in the state are medical marijuana and federally legal hemp products.
In Mississippi, hemp-derived CBD products are legal under the Farm Bill of 2018.
Although slow to change, the Magnolia State amended the law to align with federal law. State lawmakers decided against launching a state-regulated hemp program but passed HB 1547 in July 2019.
The bill legalized “processed cannabis plant extract, oil or resin” with at least 50mg of CBD per milliliter and no more than 2.5mg of THC per milliliter. Legal CBD products must contain a minimum ratio of 20:1 CBD to THC.
Mississippi allows the sale of low-THC cannabis for medical use by qualifying patients. Under “Harper Grace’s Law,” passed in 2014, Mississippi enabled patients suffering from severe epileptic conditions to CBD oil with at least 15% CBD and no more than 0.5% THC by weight.
Legal Delta 9 THC and Federal Law
Is delta 9 THC legal on a federal level? Can it be infused and sold in gummies? Let’s look at the legal status of delta 9 federally.
Delta 9 THC is legal federally when derived from hemp material with less than 0.3% delta 9 THC. Again, it can be infused and sold in gummies only in a concentration of no more than 0.3%.
This cannabinoid was legalized in 2018 with the passage of the Farm Bill. The bill removed “hemp” and “THC in hemp” from the list of controlled substances. Hemp is no longer considered marijuana, which continues to be an illicit substance federally.
The bill legalIzed the cultivation of hemp and the sale of hemp-derived products, defining it as:
“The term ‘hemp’ means 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 .”
Delta 9 THC gummies contain up to 10mg of THC, which doesn’t cross the legal threshold but makes them mildly intoxicating. Again, this product goes against the idea of hemp as a legal, non-intoxicating plant, but as long as it contains no more than 0.3% THC, it’s a legal product.
One of the main hurdles around the legality of these gummies and other edibles is that they contain cannabidiol (CBD). The FDA has declared CBD as an adulterant if put in food and beverages or marketed as a dietary supplement.
The FDA hasn’t changed its position, but many states decided to take their own action and legalize the sale of CBD in food, so long as the product labeling doesn’t make any medical claims.
