Yo, Dan here. If you’re into the cannabis game, you might know that cannabis seeds are legal in the US. Believe it or not, it’s actually true. But how can a seed be legal when the plant is still illegal? Let me explain.
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) recently issued a statement confirming that any cannabis seed, tissue culture, or genetic material with less than 0.3% Delta-9-THC is not controlled under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). This means that as long as the THC content of your seed is below 0.3%, you’re good to go and you won’t be breaking any laws.
So why is this so important? Well, for starters, it means that you don’t have to worry about getting busted if you’re buying marijuana seeds or clones online or in-person. You can get your hands on all the seeds and genetics you need without fear of prosecution. It also means that cannabis breeders can sell their seeds and clones openly within the law. This has already led to an explosion of strains on the market, so no matter what kind of weed you’re looking for, there’s probably a strain out there for you.
But it goes even further than just seeds. This ruling also means that any other hemp-based products with less than 0.3% THC are now legal too. This includes everything from CBD oils and edibles to topical creams and lotions. This is great news for those looking to experience the therapeutic benefits of cannabis without having to worry about legalities.
Of course, there are still some caveats to this ruling. For starters, it doesn’t change federal laws regarding the cultivation and sale of marijuana products equal to or above 0.3% THC. Also, every state has its own laws regarding marijuana and hemp-based products, so be sure to check your local laws before taking part in any activities related to cannabis.
Still, it’s hard not to be excited about this ruling from the DEA. It opens up a world of possibilities for those interested in the cannabis industry, both recreational and medicinal users alike. So if you’ve been wondering whether or not cannabis seeds are legal in the US, now you know – they are!
