Industry watches as markets wrestle with regulations for hemp intoxicants such as delta-8 THC

If states are the laboratories of democracy, as the saying goes, those labs are getting some surprising results this year as they experiment with ways to regulate hemp derivatives in the face of federal inaction on the rise of intoxicating cannabinoids made from newly legal hemp plants.

Narrow adult-use marijuana initiative makes South Dakota ballot

An adult-use marijuana initiative is headed to the ballot again in South Dakota this fall, but this one is narrow in scope: It paves the way for possession and home grow but not a regulated, commercial market. South Dakota’s secretary of state office ruled this week that Initiated Measure 27, put forth by South Dakotans for Better Marijuana Laws, qualified for the Nov. 8 ballot with 25,023 valid signatures based on a random sample. That total easily exceeded the 16,961 required signatures...

U.S. court’s strict interpretation of Farm Bill finds delta-8 THC legal

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit has ruled that hemp-derived delta-8 THC is legal under the 2018 Farm Bill, in a case arising out of a trademark dispute in California. Upholding a U.S. District Court’s decision, the appeals court found that the Farm Bill’s definition of legal hemp “expressly applies to ‘all’ such downstream products so long as they do not cross the 0.3 percent delta-9 THC threshold.” The ruling is a victory for proponents of delta-8 THC, who have argued that the compound is a legal derivative of legal hemp...

Federal appeals court: Hemp-derived Delta-8 THC products are ‘lawful;’ only Congress can ban

Delta-8 THC derived from hemp is “lawful” and eligible for trademark protection, a federal appeals court ruled in a vaping dispute. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said in its ruling Thursday that because Congress legalized not just hemp but its “derivatives” and “extracts” in the 2018 Farm Bill, delta-8 THC is legal if it is derived from a hemp extract – in this case, CBD...

Aiming to help set CBD framework, UK group focuses first on THC limits

Recommendations from the UK’s Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD) for maximum allowable THC levels in CBD products are much too low and could be calamitous for domestic producers, a Parliamentary group has suggested. ACMD last December issued guidance suggesting a THC limit of 50 micrograms (mcg) per serving – a highly restrictive level that disincentivizes production, according to the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) of lawmakers and stakeholders advising on the UK framework for CBD...
