Is Delta 9 THC Legal to Buy Online in South Carolina?

Before you get too excited, let's focus on legalities—how is Delta 9 THC legal in South Carolina? 

The 2018 Farm Bill made a massive wave in the cannabis industry, because it federally legalized all cannabinoids and products that derive from hemp. This bill paved the way for many legislators to pass their own hemp laws. 

As of this writing, Delta 9 THC is legal in South Carolina. This law came into effect after Governor Henry McMaster signed South Carolina House Bill 3449. This bill legalized all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers that derive from hemp. 

These sections of HB 3449 outline Delta-9 legality in South Carolina:

South Carolina House Bill 3449

SECTION 46-55-10

(6) "Federally defined THC level for hemp" means a delta-9 THC concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis, or the THC concentration for hemp defined in 7 U.S.C. SECTION 5940, whichever is greater.

(7) "Handling" means possessing or storing hemp for any period of time. "Handling" also includes possessing or storing hemp in a vehicle for any period of time other than during its actual transport from the premises of a licensed person to cultivate or process industrial hemp to the premises of another licensed person. "Handling" does not mean possessing or storing finished hemp products.

(8) "Hemp" or "industrial hemp" means the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the nonsterilized seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with the federally defined THC level for hemp. Hemp shall be considered an agricultural commodity.

(9) "Hemp products'' means all products with the federally defined THC level for hemp derived from, or made by, processing hemp plants or hemp plant parts, that are prepared in a form available for commercial sale, including, but not limited to, cosmetics, personal care products, food intended for animal or human consumption, cloth, cordage, fiber, fuel, paint, paper, particleboard, plastics, and any product containing one or more hemp-derived cannabinoids, such as cannabidiol. Unprocessed or raw plant material, including non sterilized hemp seeds, is not considered a hemp product.

What’s Delta 9 THC?

​​There are over 100 naturally occurring cannabinoids that have been identified and structurally characterized. As the cannabis world evolves, three cannabinoids are in demand: CBD, Delta 8, or Delta 9

Previously, Delta 9 THC (Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) was only associated with marijuana plants. However, it can be derived from hemp as well. 

Our Select Spectrum and Live Rosin products contain Delta-9 THC from hemp at a compliant concentration. 

What Are the Effects of Delta 9 THC?

Before diving into effects, keep in mind that there are no guaranteed effects after consuming Delta-9. Our bodies handle chemicals differently, and many factors can dictate your experience. With that being said, Delta-9 connoisseurs have reported feeling:

  • Euphoric
  • Relaxed
  • Calm
  • Motivated
  • Uplifted

When Delta-9 is consumed correctly, it can be a positive and memorable experience. It is a common error to consume more edibles than your tolerance can handle. Avoid this rookie mistake, and start small. The edibles may be delicious, but if you consume too much, your experience may not be ideal.  

Is Delta 9 Safe? 

Like anything, hemp-derived Delta-9 is safe when you use it moderately and correctly. After you use Delta-9 or any other products that contain THC, you cannot operate any machinery or drive a vehicle.

If you feel that you consumed too much hemp-derived Delta-9, you are in no physical danger. The effects from Delta-9 are temporary and will go away in a couple of hours. To enjoy Delta-9 to its fullest, you can sit and watch a movie, draw, write, or take a blissful nap.

Can You Buy Delta 9 in South Carolina?

Of course! You can buy hemp-derived Delta 9 in South Carolina if you are 21 years or older. If you are a hemp enthusiast and have previously purchased full-spectrum CBD products, you have already bought Delta-9.

When you purchase hemp-derived Delta-9, the product can contain a concentration of 0.3% or less on a dry weight basis. If the concentration exceeds this limit, it will be categorized as “weed,” which is illegal in South Carolina. Other hemp-derived cannabinoids like CBD or Delta-8 do not have a concentration limit.

To avoid any unforeseen mishaps, if you plan to purchase Delta-9 in South Carolina but leave the state with it, verify that the states you travel in allow hemp-derived products.
