Can You Buy Legal Delta 9 Gummies in Nevada?
Unfortunately, our brand new Delta 9 THC gummies are illegal in Nevada.
They are packed with delta 9 and cannabidiol, and their THC level doesn’t exceed 0.3%. But, the state doesn’t allow the sale of cannabinoids in hemp products and considers such products adulterated.
If the law loosens up or changes, you can order our gummies and enjoy their chill vibe. For now, feel free to look at other tested, top-shelf products by Mr. Hemp Flower.
We recommend our PCR hemp oil, the best whole-plant oil you’ll ever put your hands on. This extract has been put to the test by hundreds of customers who wholeheartedly agree that this product offers the entire hemp plant profile in a bottle.
Our PCR hemp oil contains less than 0.3% THC and is legal in Nevada, which you can see from the Certificate of Analysis.

Other legal products you should try are our hemp pre-rolls. They are hand-crafted and made with organically grown hemp on local farms in North Carolina and Oregon.
Are Hemp Delta 9 Gummies Legal in Nevada?
Hemp-derived delta 9 THC gummies are in a legal gray area in Nevada.
If the gummies you’re buying contain less than 0.3% delta 9, they might be in a gray area in Nevada. While most CBD products are allowed, the Silver State holds close to federal law regarding the sale of hemp CBD in foods.
State Gov. Sisolak approved SB 209 in 2019. The bill gives authority to the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to develop and regulate hemp products. In Nevada, you can buy full spectrum CBD products that have not been combined with other food.
According to the Department of Health, “CBD is NOT an approved additive in a food product.” Given the FDA prohibits but tolerates the sale of CBD as long as the products are not marketed under health claims, the legal status of these gummies is uncertain.

What is Hemp-Derived Delta 9 THC?
Hemp is a Cannabis sativa variety with low levels of delta 9 THC — the intoxicating component that gets you “high.” For this reason, and the fact that it does have therapeutic benefits, hemp was legalized federally. So, only when derived from the flowers of legal hemp, delta 9 is considered a legal cannabinoid.
This compound is typically known as the hemp compound that gets you intoxicated. But, research shows that it also possesses therapeutic properties. THC can help with symptoms like pain, inflammation, nausea, vomiting, and poor sleep — especially when paired with other cannabinoids and terpenes.
Legal Delta 9 THC and Federal Law
Like all cannabis varieties, hemp was placed in the Schedule I narcotics category by the 1970 Federal Controlled Substances Act. This group of drugs is defined as one with no accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse.
In 2018, Congress recognized the value of hemp and its cannabinoids and legalized hemp cultivation federally. The Farm Bill defined hemp 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 .”
Marijuana is still a federally illegal substance, as is CBD derived from marijuana. Because hemp is considered an agricultural commodity, delta 9 derived from federally compliant hemp is legal.
Federally compliant hemp is hemp material with less than 0.3% delta 9 THC. The new delta 9 gummies are infused with legal delta 9 in a concentration of no more than 0.3%. They are slightly intoxicating but legal under the 2018 Farm Bill because of their levels of THC.
The Farm Bill of 2018 authorized the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to regulate the sale of CBD products, their manufacturing, and labeling.
The FDA still hasn’t given the green light for the use of CBD in food and beverages due to a lack of research. This has created confusion on the state level, which prompted states to individually legalize and regulate this cannabinoid. So, the sale of hemp-derived CBD in foods is tolerated as long as they are not marketed as dietary supplements.
