Which hemp-derived THC product is legal to buy in West Virginia? Hemp production is permitted in the Mountain State, but sometimes, state laws have certain nuances you should know before ordering whole-spectrum extracts.
The best example is the new and effective delta 9 THC gummies that, in addition to CBD, have 10mg delta 9 THC. Are they fully legal in West Virginia? Let’s take a closer look.
What Is Hemp-Derived Delta 9 THC
Hemp-derived delta 9 is THC extracted directly from the mature buds and flowers of the hemp plant. Hemp was legalized on a federal level under the Farm Bill of 2018. The bill allowed the cultivation of the plant and commercial distribution of hemp-derived products with no more than 0.3% delta 9 THC.
That said, THC derived from marijuana remains illegal federally, so when buying cannabinoid products, make sure you check the source of extraction. Regarding effects, studies show that, in low to moderate doses, THC is helpful for inflammation, pain, sleep problems, lack of appetite, and nausea and vomiting.
Buy Hemp Compliant Delta 9 THC in West Virginia
You can buy our brand new Delta 9 THC gummies in West Virginia.
West Virginia law allows the sale of hemp-derived products and CBD in food. They also haven’t banned delta 8 THC, which is present in our gummies. So, you can order these legal gummies and enjoy them in the comfort of your home.
What makes delta 9 THC gummies different? First, our gummies are unique because they are derived from hemp and are infused with an equally distributed whole-plant extract.
We test each batch of hemp before extraction, as well as each final product. When buying from us, you can rest assured you are getting a clean and tested product that doesn’t contain harmful ingredients and is sold to you by the maker.
In addition, our gummies contain the perfect CBD to THC ratio and are rich in essential hemp cannabinoids. Aside from the main ones, like delta 9 (10mg), CBD (15mg), delta 8 (7.9mg), this product contains minor cannabinoids like CBN, CBC, and CBG.
Research shows that terpenes boost the effects of cannabinoids, and whole-plant hemp extracts are abundant in them. In every bite, you’ll experience the whole-plant power of the hemp plant.
Due to their high CBD content, our gummies provide an enjoyable, relaxing experience. They won’t get you too high (except if you’re a beginner), but to be sure, start with half a gummy and increase from there.
Because they are subtly stimulative, they can help with daytime focus, pain relief, and keeping you active no matter what you’re dealing with that day. They are also ideal for creative activities and stress relief after a hard week at work. We especially recommend gummies if you are not a smoker or wish to kick that habit.
Legality of Hemp Delta 9 THC in West Virginia
Thanks to the Farm Bill and state law, full spectrum delta 9 THC gummies are 100% legal in West Virginia.
The state law permits the sale of hemp-derived CBD products with less than 0.3% delta 9 THC. West Virginia legalized hemp back in 2002, under Senate Bill 447, initially defining the plant as cannabis with no more than 1% THC.
In 2018, the state passed the West Virginia Industrial Hemp Development Act, developing procedures for hemp growers, processors, and sellers. In 2019, the state updated its legislature under House Bill 2694, clarifying rules on hemp-derived CBD products.
You don’t need a license to buy hemp-derived CBD products in West Virginia. One of the advantages of state law is that it doesn’t consider CBD derived from hemp a controlled substance or an adulterant used in food products. This goes against federal law but is excellent for the consumer because you can legally buy different hemp CBD/THC edibles.
Legal Delta 9 THC and Federal Law
The relationship between CBD and federal law is complicated because CBD is an approved epilepsy drug. Due to the drug exclusion rule, this cannabinoid cannot be used as a food ingredient. But, that’s not the case with THC, which is legal under the 2018 Farm Bill if used in a concentration of no more than 0.3%.
The federal bill removed ‘hemp’ and ‘THC in hemp’ from the list of controlled substances. It defines the plant as “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 .”
Now that hemp is legal, THC derived from hemp in a concentration of no more than 0.3% is also legal. In addition, cannabis with high THC content, aka marijuana, remains illegal federally. The only way you can legally obtain marijuana-derived THC is under a medical marijuana card or in a state that allows recreational use.
While you can buy hemp-derived THC gummies unrestricted, most products also contain CBD to balance the effects. The FDA hasn’t approved CBD in food because they need more data and scientific evidence on its safety. But, as long as these products are being sold without making health claims or labeling them as dietary supplements, they are tolerated by the federal agency.
