Is Delta 9 THC Legal in Delaware?

Most people have questions about hemp law, especially this one – is Delta 9 legal in Delaware?

As of this writing, Delta 9 and other cannabinoids derived from hemp are legal in Delaware. In 2018, the 2018 Farm Bill was passed, which federally legalized hemp. Since then, Delaware has been one of the many states to legalize hemp production. Under Title 3-Chapter 28, hemp cultivation and hemp products are legal.

According to the 2018 Farm Bill and Delaware law, you can buy Delta 9 products online in Delaware, as long as the product follows federal guidelines. A hemp product can contain Delta 9 concentrations at 0.3% or less on a dry weight basis. If the concentration surpasses the limit, it will be characterized as “weed”, which is federally illegal and illegal in Delaware.

Below are highlights of Title 3-Chapter 28 and Title 16:

What’s Delta 9 THC?

In the last few years, the cannabis industry has exploded across the country, so there is no surprise if you are familiar with the terms CBD, Delta 8 THC, and Delta-9 THC. The compounds listed are the three most in-demand cannabinoids that can be derived from hemp.

Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol is a naturally occurring cannabinoid in cannabis plants. This compound is well-known for its appearance in marijuana. However it can also be found in hemp.

What Are the Effects of Delta 9 THC?

It is difficult to determine all of the effects Delta-9 edibles can bring on because the list is endless. However, we have gathered a list of common effects that enthusiasts have reported feeling:

  • Euphoria
  • Motivated
  • Uplifted
  • Relaxed
  • Calm

As exciting as these effects are, keep in mind that your own experience might differ. To encourage the ideal experience, we recommend preparing your environment and starting small. Our Delta-9 gummies, cereal bars, and other treats are delicious, but keep in mind that moderation is key.

Lastly, plan ahead and make sure your environment is safe and fits your needs. We recommend trying hemp-derived Delta-9 with a small group of friends in an environment you are familiar with.

What’s the Difference Between Delta-8 and Delta-9?

Although Delta 8 is an isomer of Delta 9, they offer different experiences. From a quick view, these compounds have a nearly identical chemical makeup, but they have a huge difference when you take a closer look.

Delta 8 and Delta 9 both have a chemical bond, but where the bond is located separates these compounds. Delta 8 has a double bond located on the eighth carbon chain, and Delta 9 has a double bond located on the ninth carbon chain. As slight as this difference may seem, it affects how your body reacts to the cannabinoid.

It has been reported that Delta 8 can offer less acute effects compared to Delta-9, but remember, your experience may be different.

Is Delta 9 Safe?

Delta 9 is generally safe when used safely and responsibly. There is very little threat of physical danger. If you have a busy day ahead of you, it may not be the right time to take Delta-9 because once you consume THC, you cannot drive a vehicle or operate heavy machinery.

Remember, always start small to avoid feeling “overwhelmed” or intense sensations. If you feel that you consumed too much hemp-derived Delta-9, there is no need to stress. You are in no physical danger, and the effects will slowly fade away over a couple of hours. In the meantime, the best thing you can do is to keep your mind occupied. We recommend watching a show, reading a book, or listening to music.
